Jim and Daisy Chatto’s beautiful ‘Isle’ vineyard, deep in the Huon Valley (overlooking the river), is approximately 1.5 hectares in size, planted in 2007 and 2010 with eight different clones of Pinot Noir – 667, 777, 114, MV6, 2051, 8048, 2A and Abel – at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare, all on own roots.
This week’s LOT is a special one. We’ve managed to secure all of the last remaining stocks of one of the best-value red Burgundies we’ve come across in a long time. Domaine Faiveley is well known, producing an amazing array of top-quality red Burgundies from throughout the region, particularly in the Cote de Nuits. A couple of years ago Faiveley released a new wine, a blend from several parcels of old vines throughout the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. Indeed, the vines that produce the fruit for this wine were variously planted between 1945 and 1969, and cover more than seven hectares of the village.
It is with great delight that we offer you a selection of the exceptional red Burgundies from Domaine Gerard Mugneret. We’ve long loved this domaine, established in the 1930s in the village of Vosne-Romanee, yet amazingly it remains nearly anonymous, even amongst Burgundy afficiandos. And given the stratospheric prices asked by many of its Vosne-Romanee neighbours, Gerard Mugneret’s wines seem very generously priced!
This week, we are proud to offer the wines of perhaps our favourite Piedmontese producer, Chiara Boschis. Antonio Galloni says that “Chiara Boschis’ 2017 Barolos are among the most successful wines of the vintage”, and given his expertise and the fact he’s tasted nearly all of them, who are we to argue?!
The highly anticipated (and tiny vintage release) of Dan Standish’s 2019 Barossa Valley Shiraz are here. Sadly, we only have two cuvees to offer this year, but they’re both exceptional wines. Quantities are very limited, don’t miss out.
Elio Altare’s revered Barolo are always brilliant wines, generally quite modern in style, but with an emphasis on precision and depth of flavour. Of all makers, Altare have really hit the ball out of the park in 2017. Galloni says “Altare’s 2017s are gorgeous, must-have wines for the year” and I couldn’t agree more.
