Mesmerizing Margaux

Malescot Bottles

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Malescot St.-Exupéry's owners, Jean-Luc and Françoise Zuger, for a vertical tasting of the estate's phenomenal Margaux. What the event showed was wines of great richness, pure and fragrant, very forward, but framed by excellent tannins and masterful oak integration - we were completely smitten with the wines and felt you should not miss this opportunity to score back and current vintages of well-priced, exceptional Margaux. You'll find below our comments on the wines in italic, followed by notes and points from the Wine Advocate, and, for more information on the estate, you can click HERE. Please allow a good three months for delivery as the wines are coming straight from the estate in a temperature controlled container.

Isole e Olena + Cepparello New Release

isole barrels

Following a complete revamping of the family estate in the 1970s, owner Paolo de Marchi transformed Isole e Olena in a veritable Tuscan powerhouse. Judiciously using green harvesting and generally tightening the work in the vineyard, with precise use of excellent quality French oak and controlled malolactic fermentations elevated the wines of the estate to a level never seen before. Today we have the latest release of de Marchi's two flagship wines - the delicious, fragrant and bright Chianti Classico, and the deep, silky, powerful Cepparello.

Spanish Grand Cru

valbuena back vinatges

We were recently graced by the presence of Vega Sicilia CEO Antonio Menendez for a fabulous dinner at Moda Brisbane, and, tasting the wines, we realized that we absolutely had to share them with you. If you're not familiar with the estate, suffice to say that it has often been described as the Château Lafite of Spain - and we couldn't agree more! From the more rustic Toro to their flagship Unico, the wines are polished, pure, effortless, and possess an impeccable sense of place. This offer is the perfect opportunity for you to grab the legendary wines of Vega Sicilia at a very advantageous price, including the very moreish Rioja collaboration with the Rothschild family, some back vintages and the last magnum of 2008 Unico! All the details below.
