Château Clinet’s gravelly soils have been producing some of the greatest Merlot-based Bordeaux since the 15th century. Sexy and lush when young then evolving to incredible levels of complexity and elegance with incredible possibility for long aging, Chateau Clinet epitomizes what makes Pomerol one of the sacred places in Bordeaux.
Winegrower Pascal Sirat farms his family’s 11 hectare of Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines, rooted in gravelly soils laced with veins of iron-rich clay. He’s got fairly old vines whose roots run very deep in the poor soil, tapping the mineral groundwater far below the surface. The resulting wines are ripe but fresh, with an aromatic complexity and stony finish usually reserved for wine twice the price.
Château Sipian is an extremely well-regarded Left Bank estate with old vines, rooted in the classic gravelly soil of Bordeaux. This creates a perfect setting for making medium bodied, aromatic Cabernet based blends that drink well young, are fantastic at the table and age gracefully in a proper cellar.
This incredible effort from Clos L’Eglise is a bordeaux blend comprised of 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. It comes from the Right Bank Pomerol appellation. Winemaker and Proprietor Hélène Garcin produced one of her best efforts ever– a big, lavish, intricately woven wine that will continue to develop for years to come.
The Patagonia Cab from Hervé Fabre is sourced from one of the most extreme environments in the world. But those extremes bring out the best in Cabernet, those stressed old vines yield black, opulent fruit yet with aromatic complexity.
Robert Foley’s Shelter Cabernet Sauvignon gets released after years of both barrel and bottle aging once they’re finally deemed ‘ready’ by the master himself. Not starving for money or fame, Foley holds the wine back out, aging graceful, smooth blends of Napa Cabernet from some of the same vineyard sites he uses to make his signature wines.
Corzano e Paterno is an absolute oasis in the rolling hills of Chianti, a must visit if you go to Tuscany. The wine there is absolutely killer. The Corzanello 2018 is a young vine blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has just incredible fruit and is vibrant enough to stand up to any outdoor cuisine.
Drought conditions in 2017 combined with rocky terrain made for a small but powerful 2017 vintage. The fruit is intense, berried-up and juicy, with a touch of dark chocolate and coffee. But this is what makes it special…the wine is elegant. It’s got a great nose, better on day 2 and has fresh, juicy fruit, just a delicious Cab.
Not Eligible for Futher Discount-From famed winemaker, Robert Foley comes an absolute delight of a bottle of wine. A seamless Bordeaux blend of 80% Cabernet, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot that is incredibly smoothly now but should have another decade easy of prime drinking. It is the definition of a Saturday Night bottle of wine. One to cherish for a special occasion.
The Mascot is a blend of Harlan, Bond and Promontory barrels, Cabernet Sauvignon from some of the most spectacular vineyards in the Napa Valley. It’s a bit steep, a Saturday nighter for sure. But when you consider Harlan Estate goes for about $1000 a bottle and Bond and Promontory come in around $500, the Mascot almost looks like a Tuesday nighter. Almost..
The price is crazy; we’ve been grandfathered in to Anne’s Trousse Chemise best offer price, so we can pass our savings onto you. It’s conceivable to blind taste this wine in a group of $50+ Napa Cabs and have this one come out on top. At $19 retail, I didn’t even think; I went all in. You should too– you won’t regret it for a second!
The 2016 Valpaia Balifico is a 65-35 blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s deep and dark with a complex nose. In the mouth, the wine is big and juicy, with layers of fruit and it finishes quite long. It’s part of the rather new category of Super Tuscans, big Italian wines made with non-indigenous grapes. It’s a stunner!
