Welcome to the last week of our Summer Sale.

As usual the wines are divided into two categories - those of perfect appearance which are simply reduced because we need to make room for new purchases and 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.

We have picked out some highlights from the new additions and further reductions on offer below and will continue to update these during the course of the sale which will continue until the end of July.

Remember to check back regularly as we will be adding to the wines on offer as we continue to scour our stocks throughout the month.

Sale Highlights

RED BORDEAUX

Château Cantemerle 2016 – Reduced from £240 to £210. We believe that it is impossible to find a Bordeaux classed growth in a great vintage at a lower price than this. This classic mid-weight claret is well noted by the critics including this 94 point review from James Suckling: “Plenty of menthol, blackberry and blackcurrant aromas in this elegant, medium-weight Haut-Médoc that’s got as much freshness as ripeness and a long, clean, mineral and herbal finish. An incredibly food-flexible wine! 94 points” JamesSuckling.com

Les Allées de Cantemerle 2015 – Reduced from £135 to £120. And what better deal could there possibly be on the 2nd label of a cru classé than this? Just £10 per bottle in bond for a delicious drinker described by Neal Martin as “An Outstanding 2nd Wine!”. This is a real 90 point bargain!

Château Beaumont 2016 – And there’s another bargain here from the people who make Beychevelle. Already drinking well, this is quite brilliant value for money at our list price of £130 but it’s been reduced to £115 per dozen. A 91 point rating from Neal Martin who calls this “classy stuff”. And now less than a tenner a bottle!

Château Tronquoy Lalande 2016 – Reduced from £250 to £225 per dozen. This 2016 St Estephe from the Montrose team was a big hit at the last Southwold blind tasting. It received rave reviews. Every critic has this rated above 90 points. This is a really great classically structured claret, maybe even better than the long sold-out 2010 that was so popular a few years ago. 

G Acte 3 2011 Imperiales – This wine is now known as Les Perrieres de Lafleur. Ten years ago it was called G Acte 3 and we have a small stock of 6 litre Imperiales at an amazingly low £120 each. 90 points from Neal Martin who calls it “very fine”. The perfect wine for your post-lockdown party! 

And for lovers of ROSÉ

The pandemic has meant no fans in football stadia for the last 18 months. This meant that Crystal Palace FC were unable to place their annual order for the club’s popular Eagle Rosé from Château Thénac. The wine was already bottled but not labelled, so it has now been shipped with the château label by Farr Vintners for our customers to enjoy this summer at a bargain price. We are pleased to offer Fleur de Thenac Rosé 2020 at just £5 per bottle in bond. That’s £60 per dozen instead of the normal £80.

SWEET WHITE BORDEAUX

As we have mentioned many times, mature Sauternes offers sweet wine lovers the greatest bargains in the fine wine world. Two to highlight today from the everyday to the ultimate.

Château Lafaurie Peyraguey 2007 Ex Château stock – This is reduced from an already cheap £340 down to just £295 per dozen. 2007 is a great year for Sauternes and the value for money here is extraordinary compared to the price of the recently released 2020 at £460 per dozen – which is ten years off maturity. 18.5/20 from Decanter, 94 points from Neal Martin. Outstanding Sauternes to enjoy now.

Château d’Yquem is clearly the greatest name of all in this region. We have a dozen bottles of the legendary 1967 vintage in our “Imperfect stock” section with a monster £5000 discount! If you are looking for a case of this liquid gold in the original wood with pristine labels you’ll have to pay at least £13200 for it, but at £8200 per dozen our slightly tatty dozen, re-packed in a carton is unbeatable. 

CHAMPAGNE

Charles Heidsieck Brut Millesime 2006. A near £200 per dozen discount on this mature Champagne brings the price down to £620 per dozen. There is a great review from The Wine Advocate’s William Kelley. 

RED BURGUNDY

Nuits St Georges Les Boudots – Noellat 2017. Just a few metres south of La Tâche is this great vineyard. We have 3 litre jeroboams reduced from £450 to £375 each.

SPAIN

We have a great deal on the decadent Clos Mogador 2005 which is rated 98 points in the Wine Advocate “Super-concentrated, sweetly-fruited, and complex, this tour de force of a wine  will drink well from 2012 to 2040”. Down from £840 to £780 per dozen.

VINTAGE PORT

In our “Imperfect Stock” section we have Taylor 1983 down from the usual price of £700 per dozen to £600. Recently removed from a cold damp cellar this is still in original wooden cases (but we should suggest re-packing for safe transport) and the labels are damaged. Excellent levels – which is what counts.
