What makes a wine fine? Origin, quality, rarity, price: all are criteria we use when determining which wines we list in this section of our portfolio. And “fine” is no longer “confined” to the classic regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône; California, South Africa, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and Portugal all have niche producers making what we consider to be iconic wines – estates like Ridge, Shafer, Boekenhoutskloof and Kilikanoon to name but a few.
Talking of classics, we are delighted to welcome the Bordeaux 2010s onto our list. This is a superb vintage at every level and appellation. As always the Rhône section of the list is our pride and joy. The Bruniers continue to make some of the very best Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with the contrasting styles of their Vieux Télègraphe and La Roquète. Burgundy continues to be a work in progress but we are also pleased to introduce the Remoissenet wines and look forward to welcoming Bernard to these shores in the autumn. We have also strengthened our Italian section: don’t miss the stunning Barbarescos from Piero Busso.
Keep an eye on our website for En Primeur offers and stories of our travels and tastings.
