If you are fatiguing of the youth culture, take a step back a few years with this pair of wines which are both developing beautifully. The bold and genorous Ribera 2004 will make for endless contemplation and glass swirling, whilst the 2006 St Veran is starting to show just what extraordinary feats Chardonnay is capable of... given time.
What better way to celebrate 2012 than with this feast of some of the very best products of the Isles. Award winning English Sparkling Wine from Bluebell vineyard in Sussex, and the inestimable Ledaig (read "led-chig"), handcrafted at the Tobermory Distillery on the far flung Isle of Mull. A pair to be proud of...
This is the ultimate gift for a wine lover - a classic and limited production Champagne along with one of our very best white Burgundies and a brooding complex Barolo that's drinking beautifully already....
Take a journey from the classic realms of Cote du Rhone all the way across the waters to Bonny Doon in the USA: this is our ultimate eclectic wine selection. 2 very serious wines for a very serious wine fan.
Quite simply one of the very best white wines you can get hold of. This is precious and rare stuff derived from a small, unassuming but utterly extraordinary plot of land deep in the gentle hills of burgundy.
Between you and us, this is our favourite gift. Partly because Taittinger, and especially vintage Taittinger, is unutterably wonderful. And partly because of the implicit suggestion of two celebrations - a fabulous one, and an utterly fabulous one. Maybe one now (say... wedding), and one in the future (say... wedding anniversary). Or maybe one now. And one tomorrow.
A pair of very serious heavyweights for those who are in the know. Taittinger 2004, perfect for laying down for an important date or just popping open for a special occasion, luxuriate in its gentle toasty notes and fine'n'tiny bubbles. Here is teamed up with a classic Bordeaux with just the right amount of years gone by to be uncorking for a special meal right now.
A wine that needs no introduction and that re-defined wine making in Italy.. and much of the world. It's terrific to see that Sassicaia doesn't lean on it's reputation though - the winery continues to stun with more and more outstanding editions. This vintage is super intense, super long and "insanely complex" (James Suckling 98 points).
The ultimate wine gift for a true appreciator of both red and white. Verget Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2009 and the inestimable Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 1999. Make sure you have a damn fine meal to go with them, that's all we're saying.
Representing excellent drinking now but some great ageing potential this is an outstanding range of 6 of the best Bordeaux for a serious wine enthusiast. Comes packaged in a traditional wooden Bordeaux box.
Push out the boat, throw caution to the wind and get stuck into the seriously good stuff. Ridge Montebello Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 and Sassicaia 2009. No introduction needed. Limited quantities available - You better hurry up and buy it because any time now we're going in....
