First Class

RARE MILLÉSIMÉ 2002

A blend of 8 different crus across Champagne’s finest Chardonnay terroirs with 30% Pinot Noir from the village of Verzy for the Pinot Noir. Only 8 exceptional vintages of Rare has been produced since 1976. Rare offers a very intense and rich, yet fresh nose with exotic fruit aromas of kiwi, pineapples, mango, and fig. The powerful and intense palate shows off its voluptuous delicacy. The finish is very exotic with kumquat, pineapple and candied ginger, but also persistently mineral.

Olivier Leflaive Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2013

Lamblin & Fils, Chablis Premier Cru 'Fourchaumes' 2017

From fathers to sons the Lamblin lineage has succeeded in the vineyards since 1690. The Fourchaume is located on the right bank, west facing the sunset. ‘Lamblin pefectly manages to couple the nervy, crisp vitality of a top class Chablis with soft citrus and light hints of nectarine. Fine, dry, stony palate and a lengthy finish.’

Chateau Lynch Bages 2008

Chateau Lynch-Bages 2008

Château Lynch-Bages is a fifth growth as deemed by the Bordeaux Classification of 1855, that has been considered very superior to its ranking. Situated on the outskirts of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary, its 100 hectares of vines are planted on deep gravel soils.

The vintage 2008 displays nice aromas of cranberry, dried floral notes, and tobacco. Its excellent tannin structure is underlined by intensity, depth, and structure.

The Islander Estate is located on Kangaroo Island, just west of Adelaide, one of the coolest regions of South Australia. ‘Savoury dried sage and rosemary herbs accented, The Islander Shiraz delivers plush, black fruit with precision and purity.
