  • 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 Lafon La Tuilerie 2011 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2011 is a relatively cool vintage in St. Emilion which benefitted the varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Will cellar for 5 years plus.... more »
  • 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 »
  • Chateau Lagrave Paran 2015 NZD $24.95 NZD $22.95
    Perhaps one of the great classic vintages of the 21st century, together with 2000 and 2005. Lovely bouquet of fresh berries, tar and dry earth, gives way to a profound, concentrated and harmonious wine that at the price it just over delivers. Perfumed and full body with perfect balance, suave and enticing… just beautiful. Approachable now but even though it’s still a Bordeaux superior will also cellar for 5 years plus.... 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 »
  • Le Volte dell’Ornellaia 2014 NZD $46.95 NZD $39.95
    “The 2014 vintage was the most challenging in our memory, but has nevertheless enabled us to produce high quality wines that give immense pleasure. The late ripening of the grapes have made it possible to express the crispness and freshness of the fruit to best effect. What is striking is the high quality of the tannins on the palate: silky, refined and without any sharp edges, albeit with a lower density than in hotter vintages. Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is a balanced, harmonious and very drinkable wine thanks in particular to the beautiful Merlots of 2014.” Axel Heinz... more »
  • Te Mata Awatea 2015 NZD $46.95 NZD $39.95
    A wine that exhibits the best qualities of great Hawke’s Bay cabernets/merlot - intense aromatic berry fruit characters, a rich mid-palate and a supple tannin structure. Awatea is a full flavoured wine that can be enjoyed over 8-10 years. Awatea is the little black dress of wine. Perfect for every occasion. Exquisitely tailored. A brilliant bright-purple edge swirls around lush aromas of blackberry, blueberry, bay leaf and an opulent, sumptuous core of ripe, dark fruit shimmering with dark plum, black cherry and fine liquorice entwined with lingering, milk chocolate tannins. Never a stitch out of place, with style and elegance in every fold. Awatea ’15 is fine wine couture. ... more »
  • Te Mata Coleraine 2015 NZD $159.95 NZD $139.95
    First, a bouquet of violets, roses, lavender and pure cassis, followed by a banquet of blackcurrant, fragrant wild strawberry and pitch-black cherry, laid out over sweet cedar, and fine, supple French oak. Always floral, always concentrated, always poised - Coleraine ’15 is flame-red with flashes of magenta and brilliant purple. Alive with charm, texture and energy, this is a multi-generational wine of immense cellaring potential.... more »
  • Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" 2008 NZD $369.95 $319.95
    “The 2008 Ornellaia has really come together...Up until fairly recently it was a tightly wound, inaccessible wine, but it has begun to blossom quite nicely. The 2008 is a cool, inward Ornellaia graced with exquisite finesse in its dark fruit, mocha, licorice, tar and spices. I especially like the minerality and focus. There is a fabulous balance between the tannins of this structured, powerful vintage, but with gorgeous fleshiness and pliancy that makes the wine very attractive, even at this early stage. It will be fascinating to watch the 2008 develop over the coming years and decades...Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.” 96/100 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate... more »
