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 (97)Joining La Verité as one of two Sonomas released through the Place de Bordeaux, Peter Michael’s Les Pavots is his flagship wine, and I am so happy to see it included in the September Releases. A powerful vintage with plenty of Californian generosity, but with the delicacy and finesse that this mountain site delivers so expertly. Blueberry and bilberry fruits, overlaid with scorched earth, sage and rosemary herbs, all contributing to savoury Cabernet dominance with densely-packed muscular tannins, layers of tension and grip, and a mouthwatering freshness that makes it totally moreish. 3500 cases. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.In Bond: £1,142.00
James Suckling (95)This is so aromatic and floral with cedar, dried roses, and black cherries. It’s full-bodied, yet so refined and tight with silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight and focused. Needs time to open, but shows beautiful finesse and focus. Drink after 2024.In Bond: £311.00
James Suckling (97)A very opulent style with loads of black-cherry, plum, chocolate, cookie, and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and very layered with loads of fruit and spices. Extremely long and flavorful. Needs time to come completely together, but so gorgeous. Drink now or hold.In Bond: £545.00
