The Wine Vault: A selection of the world's most revered wines
Mr.Wheeler unlocks his Wine Vault and welcomes you to an intriguing collection of some of the world's most revered wines, now in full maturity and now available in very limited quantities for single bottle purchase. Once inside, choose rare, ready-to-drink cuvées from Cru Classé Bordeaux, Rhône, Tuscany, vintage Port and beyond without having to invest in full, six or twelve-bottle cases.
Better still, select a mixed case from across the range to explore your own world-of-fine-wine, or consider a bottle or two for that connoisseur you'll be giving to over the coming season. Perhaps a bottle or two for added prestige to your next dinner party, whether by the way of a '96 Sassicaia, '83 Palmer, Taylor's 1966 or an '86 Lynch-Bages. Here are legendary labels that cannot but impress.
