As the vaccines give us a glimpse of better days (this summer?), we are very pleased to share with you our new "Spring-Summer 2021" catalog.
Wine, synonymous with conviviality, sharing and pleasure, will accompany us as it should to celebrate these moments of freedom (more or less?) finally found.
The last expected 2018 Bordeaux wines arrived this winter in our cellars:
If 2018 is indeed a great vintage for red Bordeaux, the rich density of flesh and the tannic firmness of these wines (in line with the 2010s) will require patience and length of time before they express themselves at their best. They are already closing and will certainly remain silent until at least 2030-2035 for the greatest vintages.
The 2017, at a better price and with a beautiful aromatic freshness on a soft and velvety profile, are recommended to the impatient ones. Mr. Galloni (Vinous) commented on them after springing 2020, giving them excellent scores, sometimes higher than those of 2015 or 2016, even 2015 and 2016:
This catalog is also the occasion of the return of great vintages in our selections:
A final word from Bordeaux to salute the happy initiative of Bordeaux Supérieur L'Isle Fort with its Cuvée Précieuse, the expression of a vineyard (1.9 ha) with a respected ecosystem and preserved biodiversity. Preciousness which is not reflected in the price (15 to 17 € per bottle) but which is indicated by a careful presentation.
As always, we offer four Tasting Offers, to let you discover a new domain, a new wine or a particular success, while enjoying a discounted price:
Vin de France
Until now, Vin de France was the catch-all name for the industrial production of low-end table wines. Over the past decade, we have seen a growing number of talented, often young, producers prefer to break free from the regulatory straitjacket of appellations of origin, give free rein to their imagination and label their wines as Vin de France without constraint:
Finally, you will also find in our selection an original boxed set of Port+Tea proposed by the Niepoort couple (the ideal accompaniment from breakfast to digestif...). Because, as Anthelme Brillat-Savarin rightly said, "tea can perfectly replace wine at breakfast"!
