Altos R Pigeage Graciano 2018

Item Code: 3711118

Description

15 Golds and 94 Suckling Points for the latest Altos Pigeage from Jean-Marc’s superb Rioja estate.



Our Haut-Brion-trained winemaker, Jean-Marc Sauboua, founded Altos in 2006 and, all together, has won over 180 Golds, Trophies, plus many high scores.

He works with the young Amaia Amestoy and Hector Gomez in the cellar, whose CVs includes experience at Napa’s Château Montelena, Contino and Murrieta in Rioja and Villacreces in Ribera del Duero.

They made this wine from old-vine (80+ years) Tempranillo and Graciano, vinifying it using Burgundy’s pigeage method.

This involves fermenting in open vats and plunging the skins into the liquid three times a day – hands-on winemaking that delivers great results.

Aged for two years in half new French oak and bottled unfiltered, the wine offers seams of intense black fruit with spice-box complexity.

Low Stock Bartolomeo Lorenzi Amarone 2018

Bartolomeo Lorenzi Amarone 2018

Item Code: 3629118

Description

If you love big, powerful reds that make a statement, choose this gorgeous, dense, cherry charged Amarone. It’s made by specialist of this style Cantina Negrar – Italy’s 2016 ‘Winery of the Year’. Rich and packed with spiced red fruits!



Wine Enthusiast calls Amarone “one of the 15 icons in Italian wine”. They are certainly some of the most prized reds from Italy, made by the ancient tradition of sun drying grapes before fermentation. This gives them an amazing richness, a glorious combination of power and complexity that cellars well, too. No wonder they are prized the world over. This 2018 from the renowned Cantina Negrar is named after the 18th century poet Bartolomeo Lorenzi, whose epic poem celebrating rural life made Valpolicella wines famous. The grapes are from the ancient, dry, stone terraces of the cool Marano Valley, where they ripen slowly. They are then air dried for 120 days to intensify flavours. A superb bottle to enjoy now with hearty dishes or to cellar.

Low Stock Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2017

Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2017

Item Code: 3200517

Description

Wine Advocate awarded the 2017 of this Brunello 94 points and described it as "a standout wine from 2017", a "great balance of dark fruit, rose and tar". It’s from the third generation estate, among the best family producers of the region.



Founded in 1965 by Alfo Bartolommei, this remarkable family estate is one of the region’s star performers. It used to be part of the great Pieve Santa Restituta and is also a neighbour to the renowned Soldara. All in all, with its 21 hectares of vines, the property is perfectly situated to produce some of the very finest Brunellos. Every vintage, their wines gain top scores. Alfo’s three children – Paolo, Paola and Manuele – now run the estate, with grandson Giacomo as winemaker. They’ve been ratcheting up the quality in recent years, so it's remarkable how this domaine has remained relatively under the radar. Despite his youth and dynamism, Giacomo keeps methods fairly traditional, as well as organic. This is a mesmerising, complex red.

Low Stock Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Item Code: 2378516

Description

The sun shone on Casanova di Neri in 2016, both literally and metaphorically. Wine Advocate described this vintage as having "many excellent wines to choose from". They are great keepers, legendary in fact. An impressive 94-point Brunello.



Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most magnificent reds, collectors’ wines that can age for decades. This is a fine release from Casanova di Neri. A favourite of critics, the estate was founded in 1971 by Giacomo’s father, Giovanni, producing his first wine in 1978. Since then they have bought small parcels of top quality vines. Giacomo took over in 1991 and is one of the few to achieve a perfect 100 point rating from both Wine Advocate and James Suckling. This Brunello has been made traditionally, with 40 months ageing in large, old oak casks to lend notes of cedar, leather and spice to the intense red fruit character – all held together with fine tannins. Open early and decant. Superb with steak or duck breast.

Château Haut-Bergey 2007

Item Code: 1851507

Description

Critic Robert Parker described this as "Consistently one of the top, under-the-radar wines of Pessac-Léognan". It has to be good to have 14 years age and still be tasting silky, complex and long. A mellow claret with earthy, leafy red fruit length.

Haut-Bergey dates back to the 15th century, a time when the vineyards of Pessac Léognan were more numerous, and even praised by the diarist Samuel Pepys. These days many have been engulfed by the city of Bordeaux – sadly, as this is where some of the region’s greatest, often undervalued clarets can be found. This property was purchased by Sylviane Garcin Carthiad in 1991 and full renovations begun in the cellar and vineyards. It shows in the superb quality of the wines and their longevity. Cabernet-led, with a sizeable portion of Merlot lending roundness, it was aged in 50% new oak barrels for 16 months. Showing mature dusty fruits, it is mellow, with cedar, earthy, spice complexity. Serve with game or, as a plain foil, with chicken.
