  • Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1996 NZD $1,799.95 Out of Stock
    "The 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate's greatest wine. The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knock-out nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant scents. Extremely powerful and full-bodied, with remarkable complexity for such a young wine, this huge Lafite is oozing with extract and richness, yet has managed to preserve its quintessentially elegant personality. The wine of the vintage?" (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate) 100/100 ... more »
  • Chateau Latour 2006 NZD $1,694.95
    "The 2006 Latour performed even better from bottle than from barrel. Only 38% of the production (10,000 cases) made it into the grand vin, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. From barrel, I thought it was a modern day version of the 1996 or 1986, and certainly the 1996 comparison still holds. I thought it was somewhat austere from barrel, but that is no longer an issue. This is a beautifully rich Chateau Latour boasting a dense ruby/purple color, a sweet, smoky, charcoal, cassis, graphite, and forest floor-scented nose, full body, an attractive freshness, and sweet, noble tannins. This layered Latour is one of the vintage's top dozen or so wines. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030. Latour's brilliant manager, Frederic Engerer, has purchased 15 hectares of old vine Grenache and Syrah in the Cotes du Rhone region, the Drome, at a cool-climate elevation. I can't wait to see the first vintage from this Cotes du Rhone project." -- Robert Parker 95/100... more »
  • Reserve de la Comtesse 2012 NZD $98.95 NZD $94.95
    “Half of the production went into the second wine, the 2012 Reserve de la Comtesse (64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot). It is a medium-bodied, pleasant, creamy, seductive effort. While it does not possess a great deal of depth, it reveals a dark ruby color, attractive smoky, black currant and plum-like notes and light tannin.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate... more »
