Today’s Offers and Latest Releases
Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2018 (6x75cl)
Scoring a massive 97 points from Kerin O'Keefe, who describes this as a 'beauty', this is a huge overachiever every vintage and in 2018 in particular it will win over oenophiles who love fragrant wines with energy, elegance and balance
Emiliana Ge Colchagua Valley 2018 (6x75cl)
While wines may have scored higher in Suckling's report such as the £1,390 per six IB Viñedo Chadwick, this beats the other 'highly coveted icon wines' because of its outstanding value for money compared to its rivals
Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2018 (6x75cl)
A 'total charmer with a beautiful balance' according to Vinous's Eric Guido, this standouts because the estate chose not to make a Riserva in 2018 so all the top-quality fruit usually reserved for that has gone into this release
Anwilka 2017 (6x75cl)
Offered today at only £116 per six IB, this 2017 release shows 'what is increasingly possible with the superb Anwilka Stellenbosch terroir' (GS). Bordeaux know-how combined some of the oldest soils of any winemaking region in the world have created the goods once again.
Argiano Solengo 2020 (6x75cl)
Released today at only £220 per six IB, this Argiano Solengo 2020 costs a fraction of the other famous Super Tuscans such Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia but comes from an equally as historic and pedigreed estate.
Boekenhoutskloof Syrah 2020 (6x75cl)
Released today at only £170 per six IB, remarkably only £2 more per case than the last vintage, this Boekenhoutskloof Syrah 2020 is simply an outstanding value, age-worthy Syrah from one of the most celebrated vineyards in the Cape - one could ask for nothing more. This is a wine to fill the cellar with.
An Overlooked Investment Opportunity
Errazuriz Las Pizarras Chardonnay 2018 (6x75cl)
Offered today at only £245 per six IB, the same as the original release price, this Errazuriz Las Pizarras Chardonnay 2018 is only produced in small quantities, with just 1,000 six packs produced this vintage, so get yours while you can.
Saint Damien Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 2021 (6x75cl)
Offered at just £110 per six IB, or just £99 per six IB on a multi-case discount, we can't agree more with Vinous' Josh Raynolds when he states 'get it, lots of it, if you can'.
Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2020 (6x75cl)
Costing remarkably only just over £14 per bottle IB, bespite its tag-line as a 'Baby Brunello' this is a Rosso that out does many estate Brunello but costs half the price
Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas Reserve 2020 (6x75cl)
Domaine des Bosquets can claim to be the founder of the Gigondas appellation with its first vines planted all the way back in 1376 and they have now returned to their former glory to compete with Château de Saint Cosme at the top of the appellation
Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Pie Rupestris 2014 (6x75cl)
Augusto Cappellano allows critics to taste his wines but he asks them not to be given numerical scores as he feels it is reductive to judge them on a number, instead believing the quality and incredible personality of his wines speaks for themselves
Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 2018 (3x75cl)
The Ribera del Duero has now arguably overtaken Rioja as the country's premier winegrowing region today, with Vega Sicilia as one of the jewels in its crown
San Leonardo 2017 (6x75cl)
Super Tuscans have become the most famous Bordeaux Blends made in Italy, but it should not be forgotten that magic happens further north too, in Trentino especially, where San Leonardo leads the way
Esk Valley Terraces 2018 (6x75cl)
Marques de Riscal Rioja Gran Reserva 150 Aniversario 2016 (6x75cl)
Scoring a massive 99 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2016, the first 150 Aniversario cuvée was the 2001 vintage released in 2008 to celebrate the bodega's 150th anniversary but they decided to make it into a recurring release of the very best fruit in the very best vintages
Top Grand Crus & 1er Crus from Historic Bouchard
Bouchard's EP releases are a rare chance to secure wines from some of the most prestigious vineyards in Burgundy, or the world for that matter, without needing a historic allocation or having them tied to other wines
La Gaffeliere 2020 (6x75cl)
Described by one of the world's most respected Bordeaux critics Vinous's Neal Martin as a 'magnificent prospect', this scores the same as Lafite Rothschild, VCC, L'Eglise Clinet and Leoville Las Cases but costs a fraction of the price
Gaja Ca'Marcanda Camarcanda 2019 (6x75cl)
This 2019 release of their flagship Super Tuscan from the legendary Gaja family is one of the best Bolgheri Super Tuscans at its price point in vintage of 'great potential'
Domaine de Marzilly Champagne Ullens Brut NV (6x75cl)
Superb Pinot Meunier dominated release from a rising star of northern Champagne that is yet to grab the attention of wider international publications but already making waves within France

How to Acquire and Manage a Fine Wine Portfolio
There has never been more interest in fine wine / whisky as an alternative asset class. In this video Cru World Wine co-founder and CEO Jeremy Howard discusses the four options for how private clients can acquire and manage a fine wine portfolio. The options are: i) a self-managed "DIY" portfolio, ii) an "expert-assisted" portfolio, iii) a "managed portfolio" and iv) a "managed whisky cask portfolio". These different options are all offered by Cru World Wine. Howard also walks through some basic strategies for day to day portfolio management, and shows how cost effective it is to maintain a fine wine portfolio today. The cost of storing Cru's Recommended Portfolio is just 9bps per annum (if stored in Bordeaux). This is cheaper than storing physical gold or silver, and cheaper even that many ETFs.2 December 2022
