Welcome to our July Sale. The sale has now been running for over two weeks, with hundreds of wines selling out.

The update is now live, with hundreds of new and further reduced wines. These are marked as Added to Sale and Further Reduced.

As usual the wines are divided into two categories: firstly those of perfect appearance which are simply reduced because we need to make room for new purchases.  There are some huge reductions here, with some wines offered at half price, but you’ll need to be quick to grab those at the biggest discounts. Secondly there are those which have minor imperfections to packaging or labels, neither of which affect the quality of the wine and where you can find some spectacular bargains.

There are over 1,200 wines on offer – most discounted by at least 10%, and some by considerably more. Apart from selecting wines from our own stocks, we have been able to purchase some really keenly-priced parcels of Bordeaux recently and many interesting wines from our customer reserves that we are selling on a commission basis. 

Do check back regularly as we will continue to scour our stocks throughout the month and make additions to the sale.

SELECTED SALE HIGHLIGHTS

RED BORDEAUX

Montlandrie 2017 - Reduced from £160 to £144 per 12. This is a gorgeous right bank Bordeaux from the late, great Denis Durantou of L’Eglise Clinet. It is drinking beautifully now and at £12 per bottle this is a fantastic bargain. Recently rated a whopping 94 points by Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW who writes that it is “achingly plush with seamless freshness supporting the bright fruit, finishing long and earthy”. Highly recommended for current drinking and over the next 5 years.

Saint Pierre 2019 - New Addition - Reduced from £420 to £378 per 12. From the great 2019 vintage, this fourth growth is the smallest in St Julien but boasts a series of big scores, with 96 from James Suckling and Jane Anson, 95 from Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW and 94 from Neal Martin. A serious but seductive claret that is just about approachable now.

Léoville Lascases 2001 “Ex Château release 2021” - Further Reduced from £2,250 to £2,000 per 12. It is remarkable to be able to purchase this mature Lascases that is nearly a quarter of a century old at the same price as some immature vintages. The stock was released by the château at 20 years old in 2021 and this is a wine of near first growth quality. Rated between 94 and 96 by the leading critics. “Excellent” says Neal Martin.   

Petit Lion de Las Cases 2010  - Further Reduced from £600 to £495 per 12. From the same stable and now over £100 off, this second wine from Las Cases has 94 points from Jane Anson in the brilliant 2010 vintage and is offered at the cheapest price in the world.

Cos d'Estournel 2009 Magnums - New Addition - Reduced from £2,700 to £2,400 per 6. 100 point scores from three leading American critics including Robert Parker, who called it “the Cheval Blanc 1947 of the vintage”. Just £50 above the release price 14 years ago.

Lascombes 2016 - Reduced from £620 to £495 per 12. Over £100 cheaper than any other listing of this 2016 Margaux by the dozen and well below the original en primeur release price.

Rauzan Ségla 1994 Non OWC - Reduced from £820 to £670 per 12. The first vintage of Rauzan Ségla under Chanel ownership. These bottles were removed by us from the bins in the cellar of one of Britain’s most famous and iconic buildings (that unfortunately we cannot name here). Re-packed into new cartons with another £150 discount.

DRY WHITE BORDEAUX

Monbousquet Blanc 2020 - Reduced from £420 to £360 per 12. Now offered at the world’s lowest price for any vintage of this wine. “The 2020 Monbousquet Blanc was whole-bunch-pressed and matured in 38% new oak. The bouquet has a pleasing edginess that might have been missing in a couple of recent vintages; more of the terroir seeps through, touches of crushed gravel intermingling with white flowers. The well-balanced palate delivers orange peel, lemon zest and just a touch of grilled hazelnut, and fine depth and plenty of energy on the finish. This white Saint-Émilion comes recommended” says Neal Martin.

Y d'Yquem 2019 Magnums - Further Reduced from £1650 to £1450 per 6. 97 points from Jane Anson for Yquem's iconic dry white, this is a fabulous wine in 2019 that Anson says "pulls away from the pack" with its quality. These magnums are packed in individual OWCs.

SWEET BORDEAUX

Carmes de Rieussec 2019 - Reduced from £200 to £129 per 12. This has to be the wine trade’s greatest sweet white wine bargain! Recently shipped by us from a Bordeaux negociant who was clearing out stock at a considerable loss, here is an opportunity to buy the great Château Rieussec’s second label at just over a tenner a bottle (halves also available).

RED BURGUNDY

Clos de la Roche, Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2018 - Further Reduced from £1,750 to £1,500 per 12. A Farr favourite, "CLF" has an enviable holding of top grand cru vineyards and the Clos de la Roche is one of their very best sites, made from vines planted as far back as 1933. 94/97 from Jasper Morris MW.

Nuits St Georges Les St Georges, Jadot 2019 - Further Reduced from £720 to £640 per 12. 92/94 from both Allen Meadows and William Kelley, this premier cru from Jadot is a star of their portfolio in 2019. Meadows says it is "one to strongly consider" and Kelley believes it "will show well straight out of the gates."

Volnay Clos d'Audignac, Pousse d'Or 1999 - New Addition - Reduced from £1,200 to £1,080 per 12. A mature parcel from the great 1999 vintage, Allen Meadows says this is "positively effusive with its exquisite nose of sexy, seductive black fruit and perfumed aromatics", concluding "lovely stuff".

WHITE BURGUNDY

Chablis Bougros, Fevre 2018 - Further Reduced from £650 to £540 per 12. Another Grand Cru from Fevre that is heavily discounted in our sale. 93 points from William Kelley and less than £60 a bottle inc UK taxes. A great deal given the site, score and consistency of producer.

Meursault Perrières, Roche de Bellene 2017 - Further Reduced from £880 to £740 per 12. This is a premier cru Meursault made by Nicolas Potel in a great vintage, now over 15% off.

Saint Aubin Remilly, Lamy 2015 - Further Reduced from £1,300 to £1,080 per 12. Hubert Lamy has produced some of Burgundy's most exciting and drinkable whites in recent years, with his haute densité bottlings fetching eye-watering prices. This premier cru Saint Aubin is now well under £100 a bottle and has 93 points from William Kelley, who calls it "excellent" and "classic Lamy".

THE RHONE VALLEY

Côte Rôtie Les Schistes, Clusel-Roch 2018 - Reduced from £334 to £295 per 12. A sub £300 per dozen Côte Rôtie is a rare thing indeed and this one is from a top producer with a 93 point rating in Vinous “Smoothly blends power and delicacy and finishes long and spicy, with discreet tannins adding framework and gentle grip. Drink 2024 – 2032.”

Cornas, Clape 2016 - Further Reduced from £1,720 to £1,520 per 12. A great wine with a host of strong scores including 97 from Jeb Dunnuck ("a great, great finish"), 98 from James Molesworth ("The core of fruit is massive, but this will require patience") and 98/99 from Nick Stock ("extreme power, all delivered so precisely"). Clape is the king of Cornas and this is a superb deal for a vintage entering its drinking window.

Hermitage Blanc, Chave 2020 - Reduced from £3,000 to £2,500 per 12. An icon of white Rhône, Chave's 2020 white Hermitage has 99 points from Jeb Dunnuck, who says it is "Another heavenly white from this estate".

CHAMPAGNE

Laurent Perrier Cuvee Alexandra Rose 2012 - Further Reduced from £3,000 to £2,500 per 12. Now £500 off, this superb, mineral rosé from Laurent Perrier is just the 10th release of a wine first made in 1982. 96 points from Anne Krebiehl MW in Decanter, who says this is "a most gastronomic, yet elegant Champagne made for ageing."

La Closerie les Beguines (2020 Cuvee), Jerome Prevost - Further Reduced from £2,100 to £1,750 per 12. More than 15% off this cult grower Champagne, this 2020 base Closerie Les Beguines come from a fantastic vintage and is produced in very limited quantities.

Dom Perignon 2013 - Reduced from £1,830 to £1,575 per 12. A very fine vintage of Dom Perignon that William Kelley calls "a lovely wine, defined by the long, cool growing season" in his 95+ point review. This is now 14% below last year's release price despite the quality on show.

SPAIN

Ultreia El Rapolao, Bodegas Castro Ventosa 2020 - Further Reduced from £488 to £400 per 12. Another stellar wine from Raul Perez's family winery. Rapolao is recognised as a site for making wines of the highest quality, and under the stewardship of Rauls' nephew Cesar Marquez, this wine has gone from strength to strength. 97 points from Luis Gutierrez in the Wine Advocate, and just 1,700 bottles produced.

Gratallops Vi de Vila, Palacios 2021 - Reduced from £360 to £300 per 12. A serious Priorat Grenache blend, Gratallops Vi de Vila has 95 points from Luis Gutierrez and has a remarkable freshness and balance for the region. This is nearly 50% less than you can buy this wine for in any vintage elsewhere in the UK today.

ITALY

Langhe Nebbiolo Il Crutin, Giovanni Manzone 2020 - Reduced from £180 to £160 per 12. This mini Barolo is terrific value for money, a wine bursting with Nebbiolo's unique character in a moreish, approachable guise. Delightful drinking now at under £20 a bottle including UK taxes.

Barbaresco Pajore, Rizzi 2020 - Further Reduced from £295 to £265 per 12. Rizzi produce some of the best value wines in Piedmont in our view. Now £30 off, this Barbaresco is an absolute steal at under £30 a bottle including UK taxes. 95 points in Decanter and 94 from Kerin O'Keefe.

U.S.A.

Chardonnay, Kutch 2020 - Further Reduced from £370 to £330 per 12. Jamie Kutch makes fine-boned, Burgundian style Chardonnays in California, with piercing acids and refined aromatics. They punch well above their price-point on release and now with £40 off this represents outstanding value for money. 96 points from Jamie Goode.

Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Togni 2017 - Further Reduced from £900 to £760 per 12. Another producer with "Old World" leanings, Philip Togni's Cabernets are highly refined and have a distinctive savoury edge that evokes the wines of the Médoc. More than that, while many Napa Cabs are now several hundreds of pounds a bottle this 2017 is under £80 including UK taxes now that it is 15% off.
