  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2012 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2012 was one of the best vintages on record in Bordeaux. Seeing the prices of other 2012 Bordeaux, this is a sure thing in fact it's a complete steal! Owned and operated by the Lafon family well known in Bordeaux as wine growers and makers, this is pretty much the flagship of the company. 2012 is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, its incredibly ripe and concentrated. On the nose it displays cassis, floral undergrowth, tar and mint. Because of the nature of the 2012 vintage, it offers superb ripe tannins, interlinked with espresso froth, mocca, lead pencil yet remaining fresh, pure and vibrant. Superb 10-15 second finish with excellent length. An outstanding offering for those that love classic Bordeaux at its best. Cellar for 8 years plus.... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2013 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2013 was a vintage vastly different to 2009 and 2010, cooler with less heat yet a good long summer. This resulted in very even ripeness particularly for those producers that did a lot of work in the vineyard. Classical St. Emilion, vibrant acidity, lovely middle palate, freshness and good intensity. Without doubt one of the best balanced wines that we’ve seen in the last few years from Lafon la Tuilerie. Approachable now however this will be a gem in another few years, it has the pedigree and the composure to excel!... more »
