Global Icons Release 2022
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 delights 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.
James Suckling (95)This shows notes of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants with hints of licorice, cloves, walnuts and chocolate. It has full body and a velvety tannin structure. Juicy and vibrant fruit on the palate with a touch of earthiness. Smooth and delicious. Long, fruity finish. Very pure fruit. Try after 2024.
£292 - £380
Wine Enthusiast (100)This is a winemaker's master class in blending and understanding of a long-standing site. Dried herb, cedar and pencil shavings accent lifted red fruit and brilliant acidity on the palate, with a supple yet still youthfully grippy texture that is framed by structured, graceful tannins.
£850 - £1,105
