  • Chateau Bolaire 2012 NZD $34.95 NZD $29.95
    One of the most unique Bordeaux in the entire region and this is saying something particularly when there are over 7000 of them! Made from mostly Petit Verdot from vines averaging 70-80 years old. It is expressive with beautiful lavender and rosemary bouquet, full bodied, lovely texture and beautiful balance. Of course very young, particularly the 2012 which is an excellent vintage. Approachable now however will cellar for 5 years plus.... more »
  • Chateau Carteau Pin de Fleurs 2012 NZD $29.95 NZD $26.95
    Made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a relatively small vineyard of around 14 hectares with an average vine age of 30 years, expression, terroir and definition is how you would characterize this Saint-Emilion. Soft, with an ample middle palate, supple tannins and great depth from a great vintage of 2012. Approachable now however will also cellar for the next 5-6 years.... more »
  • Chateau Cos D’Estournel 2009 NZD $789.95 Out of Stock
    “One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d’Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half century.” Score 100/100 Robert Parker... more »
  • Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal 2000 NZD $186.95
    The wine is shiny and clear. The nose is complex with notes of leather, tobacco, pepper and a hint of licorice. On the palate, the tannins begin to soften and are very elegant. Lingering aroma in the mouth and roundness. The wine has a large volume with power and finesse. Wine Spectator - 92 Robert Parker - 90... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2010 NZD $64.95 Out of Stock
    2010 was one of the best vintages on record in Bordeaux. Seeing the prices of other 2010 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. 2010 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 2010vintage, 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 2011 NZD $64.95
    2011 is a relatively cool vintage in St. Emilion which benefitted the varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Classical St. Emilion, layered and refined with lovely acidity, good middle palate, concentration and depth. This is almost the opposite of the 2010 in ripeness and power. Will cellar for 5 years plus.... more »

  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2013 NZD $64.95
    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 »
  • Chateau Lagrave Paran Rouge 2014 NZD $24.95 NZD $22.95
    After 16 years of Accent on Wine importing Chateau Lagrave Paran directly from the Chateau with no middlemen involved, 3 vintages come to mind so far, 2000, 2005 and 2014. Stunning and concentrated with great depth and structure, ripe tannins with wonderful length. At the moment it’s still young however even for a Bordeaux Superior, this will reward a little patience of 2-3 years even though it is delicious now.... more »
  • Chateau Leoville Barton 2012 NZD $164.95 NZD $156.95
    “Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years. Drink: 2023 – 2053. 92/100” – Robert Parker... more »
  • Chateau Pavie 2009 NZD $639.95 Out of Stock
    “Bottled the week before I arrived, the 2009 Pavie appears to have barely budged since I tasted it two years ago. Many experts consider this phenomenal terroir to be nearly as great as that of Ausone. Made from a classic blend of 60-70% Merlot, 20-25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, this inky/blue/purple-colored blockbuster reveals wonderful notes of blackberries, crushed rocks, roasted meats, spring flowers, cedar, blueberries, graphite and a hint of vanillin. With extravagant fruit and high extract as well as a hint of minerality, this structured, massively intense effort is typical of all the luxurious, perfect or nearly perfect Pavies produced under the Perse regime (which began in 1998). While built for 40-50 years of cellaring, the softness of the vintage and its flamboyant style is slightly less apparent in the 2009 Pavie than in some of the other Perse wines. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050+.” Score 100/100 Robert Parker... more »
  • Domaine Baron de Rothschild Lafite Bordeaux Speciale 2015 NZD $26.95 NZD $23.95
    An excellent deal on the very few remaining cases from the Domaine of Rothschild 2015, a classic vintage that is drinking very well now and over the next 4-5 years. As it is expected, even though this is only an entry level Bordeaux (not to be confused with Chateau Lafite) the wine delivers an excellent example of what even the most basic of Bordeaux’s can achieve. Medium body, softly textured, slightly dusty but yet beautifully balanced. Normally $26.95 and now we have it at $23.95 by the case. Be quick because there are only very few cases left! ... more »
