A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of sitting down withMalescot St.-Exupéry's owners, Jean-Luc and Françoise Zuger, for avertical tastingof the estate'sphenomenal Margaux. What the event showed was wines of greatrichness, pure and fragrant, very forward, but framed byexcellent tanninsandmasterful oakintegration - we were completelysmittenwith the wines and felt you should not miss this opportunity to scoreback and current vintagesof 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 clickHERE. Please allow a good three months for delivery as the wines are comingstraight from the estatein a temperature controlled container.
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.
Chile has been going through a genuine rebirth in the past few years and Viña Vik has been spearheading that effort in the Cachapoal Valley. Boasting an impressive pedigree, with the first winemaker being Patrick Valette (Château Pavie), then followed by Cristián Vallejo (Châteaux Margaux and Léoville-Poyferré), and backed by Norwegian billionaire Alexander Vik, the powerful and elegant wines of Viña Vik made such an impression on us that we've decided to import them ourselves!
