Summer Vintage Claret Mixed Case
Summer Vintage Claret Mixed Case
With summer evenings officially here and the al fresco culinary and social activities they routinely involve, what you’ll especially need is fully in-form, affordable claret. Probably a good deal of it, too. And what we mean by ‘in-form’ and ‘affordable’ is the monumental 2009 and 2010 vintages – two of Bordeaux’s most historic, now drinking supremely – and priced comfortably under £18 a bottle. Best you also have both Left and Right Banks covered: cab-led cuvées for the t-bones, merlot-heavy for the burgers.
So here’s where you start: Mr.Wheeler’s 12-bottle Summer Vintage Claret Mixed Case for £197, saving 10% on the price if purchased individually.
Médoc, Graves and Côtes-de-Bordeaux (Saint-Émilion environs), best-ever vintages, and averaging £16.50 a bottle, all in one case. Buy one (or three) and now you can unveil that outdoor grilling apparatus and pull out the folding furniture. Summer’s here.
In this mixed case you will receive four bottles each of the following wines:
2009 Château Perron, Graves
Here's how you indulge in exquisite Left Bank terroir as expressed in one of Bordeaux’s most historic vintages. Set in this gravelly appellation renowned for its precision of fruit and minerality, the Perron estate has elegantly rendered the opulence of one of the best vintages of the century (alongside 2005 and 2010) into graceful maturity - a classic, cab-let cuvée now drinking beautifully.
"...the 2009 Château Perron, a wonderfully stylish petit château from the Graves. As you know, 2009 was a stellar vintage in Bordeaux and this is in such irresistible form (and provided such solace the other night) that I just had to add it to the offer. A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, its richly flavoured, with lush, juicy fruit and hints of spice, chocolate, vanilla and cedarwood. I love it!."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
2010 Château Les Moines, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc
A classic, cabernet sauvignon led Médoc, Château Les Moines is a perfect example of the authenticity, quality and value that the Cru Bourgeois appellation so often showcases. Quality which, when expressed through one of the greatest vintages in modern times, accounts for just how sought after such superb cuvées have become.
"A fine Cru Bourgeois claret that always goes down a storm with readers and rightly so. A blend of 70 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 30 per cent Merlot from a 10/10 vintage, its resolutely in its prime with buckets of spicy, plummy fruit, and should be knocked back with abandon."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
2010 Château Laroche Bel Air, Cotes-de-Bordeaux
A beautifully aged, merlot-driven cuvée from the St. Emilion environs and one of Bordeaux’s best vintages, no less. We love the extra bit of structure and texture that enhances its ripe cassis fruit, cedar and spice complexity, here. Laroche Bel Air is in optimum drinking condition now and an absolute steal for Right Bank drinkers looking for something particularly special.
