Global Icons Release 2021
September has become one of the most exciting times in the fine wine calendar. We have a wealth of releases expected in the coming weeks including some of the hottest vinous commodities on earth.
Just in case you think we are exaggerating, in a single month we will see the release of Latour, Opus One, Inglenook, Phelps Insignia and Seña among others... can they be described as anything but the pre-eminent wines of their regions?
Pre-order now to make sure none of these iconic masterpieces passes you by. When they do hit the market in the coming weeks, without fail they will sell out with remarkable speed.
Jane Anson (98)Let the aromatics slowly unfurl out of the glass, really give it time. Crushed raspberries and tobacco, fresh flowers, salty crackers, oyster shell. The weight, the texture, the acidity are all in balance, playing off each other, and this is just a wonderful wine that stops you in your tracks. Located at 1,450m, from a 1.4ha limestone plot, particularly rich in microorganisms (as we learnt through their brilliant recent terroir studies). It’s a place where phenolic ripeness happens slowly, and the complexity builds as a result. A spring frost reduced yields by about 20%, fermented with 50% whole cluster between concrete vats and oak casks. 4800 bottles produced.In Bond: £422.50
