Tesseron Pym Rae 2019 (3x75cl)
Pym-Rae is the Napa outpost of the famous Tesseron family of Château Pontet-Canet. Since acquiring Pym-Rae in 2016, the Tesseron team has achieved remarkable success in the Mount Veeder. The latest 2019 vintage is another triumph, awarded 100pts from The Wine Independent and 98pts from Jeb Dunnuck, it delivers "beguiling energy" with a "taut backbone of invigorating acidity, matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins".

Allegrini Fieramonte Amarone Classico Riserva 2016 (3x75cl)
The Allegrini Fieramonte Amarone, re-launched in 2011, is an outstanding masterpiece, marked by its excellent freshness and extended cellar potential.

Le Petit Haut Lafitte 2016 (6x75cl)
Le Petit Smith Haut Lafitte has become one of the best value wines in Bordeaux that 'always punches above its weight' according to Neal Martin. Back by popular demand, having completely sold out of our 150 cases back in January, we are pleased to be able to present a new parcel of the 2016 vintage today.
Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes 2020 (6x75cl)
Hailing from the northern border of Puligny Montrachet, adjoining Meursault's 1er Cru Les Charmes, this is a "compelling wine from Sauzet" presenting a "very harmonious" nose of stone fruits, pear, pastry cream, white flowers and fresh croissants. Declared a wine of "huge potential" with a badge of "Sweet Spot Outstanding" from Allen Meadows, this tiny parcel at the market's lowest is not to be missed.
Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay 2021 (6x75cl)
Vasse Felix Heytesbury Chardonnay is the pinnacle of Australian Chardonnay offerings. The newly released 2021 edition has received impressive scores of 98 points from the esteemed Halliday Wine Companion and James Suckling and outshines other Australian greats. It is an outstanding value for a beautiful gem in the world of Australian whites.
Great Value! Electrifying New Releases from Etna Rosso
Sicily's Mount Etna is known for producing some of the most electrifying wines in the world, thanks to the breathtaking natural beauty of the area. Today, we are excited to present two of the best value releases of the Global Icons campaign from renowned Barolo-based winemaker Giovanni Rosso: the Etna Rosso 2020 and the Etna Bianco 2022. According to Jane Anson of Inside Bordeaux, the Etna Bianco 2022 is an exceptionally strong Sicilian white, while the Etna Rosso 2020 is not only one of the best value wines of the September Releases, but also of the wine industry in general.
Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2020 (12x75cl)
Leeuwin Estate is a renowned family-owned winery in Western Australia's Margaret River appellation. The legendary Robert Mondavi mentored the owners and helped introduce the Burgundian methods of barrel-fermenting, ageing, and stirring Chardonnay on its lees. Their Art Series Chardonnay is one of Australia's most in-demand wines. The 2020 Art Series Chardonnay was awarded 98 points by Wine Advocate for its "power and density," "minerality and tension," and "staggering length."
Cheval Blanc 2018 (6x75cl)
Forming the first vintage in the triumvirate of what has come to be known as a modern “trilogy of excellence”, 2018 was one of the most overtly powerful and intensely generous years for Bordeaux in living memory. One of only four wines awarded a perfect 100 points from Jane Anson (Decanter), Château Cheval Blanc possesses “huge density that runs through the palate, along with creamy texture”, and it should really find itself into the cellars of the most serious Bordeaux collectors.
Cardinale Proprietary Red 2007 (6x75cl)
What a find! Unlike many producers, Cardinale produces just 1 singular wine every year from vineyards across Napa’s numerous sub-AVAs, and today, we are pleased to offer the oldest back vintage available on the market! Recently tasted by Lisa Perrotti-Brown in 2018, the 2007 Cardinale received 95+ points and a recommended drinking window out to 2042!
Felsina Maestro Raro Toscana 2019 (6x75cl)
Maestro Raro Toscana is a rare pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Italy, known for its excellence and established status among Tuscan Cabernets. The 2019 vintage has received a remarkable 96-point rating from Wine Advocate and 95 points from Vinous, offering exceptional quality at an affordable price.
Vinedo Chadwick 2021 (3x75cl)
A blockbuster release from La Place today as part of the Global Icons 2023 campaign, the mighty Viñedo Chadwick has achieved the landmark accolade of being the first Chilean wine awarded 2 x perfect 100-point score from the Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutiérrez and Tim Atkin MW with its 2021 vintage. Collectors should jump on this piece of vinous history at release.
Latour 2011 (3x75cl)
Library release from Château Latour! While 2011 is not a year widely excited in Bordeaux, this Latour shows its pedigree as a 'delicious wine that stands out from many in the vintage' in the words of Decanter's Jane Anson.
Sebastien Riffault Sancerre Akmenine 2019 (12x75cl)
A 100% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% of which are botrytised, the Akmenine undergoes slight skin contact in stainless steel, followed by 36 months in used oak before being bottled, unfined and unfiltered. This is a very special Sauvignon Blanc made by the singular natural wine producer Sébastien Riffault.
Caiarossa 2020 (6x75cl)
We are thrilled to celebrate the release of the 2020 Caiarossa, which has turned out to be quite possibly the best vintage tasted by Antonio Galloni to date! Awarding 94 points to the 2020 Caiarossa, Jane Anson describes the 2020 Caiarossa as a combination of the structure of Bordeaux varietals with the generosity of Tuscany, featuring notes of “dark fruits that soften to delicious toasted spices, and plenty of liqourice, cloves, incense and underbrush”.
Cheval des Andes 2020 (6x75cl)
Scoring a huge 98 points from the Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez, the publication's joint-highest score ever for this wine, this Cheval des Andes 2020 is a wine 'playing at a high level' (JA) before one considers it is a 'triumph over the adverse conditions of the vintage' (WA) which makes it even more remarkable.

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012 - Round Trip Back to Release Price Creates Asymmetric Opportunity
The article highlights the investment potential of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012, noting its "Extraordinary" rating and its price retracement to the initial release price, presenting a favorable opportunity for a market recovery. It also mentions upcoming catalysts, like rising consumption and the release of the 2013 vintage, which will likely drive the 2012 vintage's value higher.
Fine Wine Price Correction: What is going on? And How you Profit from It?
Fine Wine has seen a modest pull-back in prices over the past few months. Although the wider market is down only 6.0% from its highs, some high-profile names have dipped a lot more. What is going on? And is this a buying opportunity? If so, what are the most attractive wines?
Lafite Rothschild 2019 – Recent Pullback is Great Buying Opportunity
Lafite Rothschild 2019 is the most attractive vintage on the market right now in terms of quality and price. It has performed fantastically well since release. The recent -12.6% price correction represents a surprising, but welcome, buying opportunity.
How to Use Lower Trading Volumes to Build Great Positions
The rise in global interest rates has led to lower liquidity and wider price variations in the fine wine market, creating an opportunity for savvy investors to strategically place realistic bids and build great positions. Historical patterns and macroeconomic factors suggest that the current lower volume trading is likely to be temporary, making the current bids potentially valuable investments in the future.
Opus One 2019 – Cult Napa with Global Appeal
Opus One 2019 offers a significant discount compared to other top estates and has the potential to be the best Opus One ever with a rating of 97-99 points. Its global appeal is boosted by the prestigious 'La Place de Bordeaux' distribution network, and the absence of the 2020 vintage due to wildfires is only expected to increase demand for the 2019 vintage.

Troplong Mondot 2022: Most Undervalued Saint-Émilion on Release - STRONG BUY (at Release Price)

Despite other big names being sold out, Troplong Mondot is still available at its release price, making it a highly recommended investment for both collectors and enthusiasts.
