It's a big week for new arrivals from some of our favourite producers, featuring old Chateau Musar, Sylvain Pataille, Lopez de Heredia Rosado, Jean Foillard, Thymiopoulos and more...
Chateau Musar 1998 and 2000
For years, Musar has been a great source of interesting old wines. But that is coming to an end. The only older wines with reasonable stocks and reasonable prices are now 1998 and 2000. How long they will last we don't know, but we have a few cases of each arriving in the next few days. Stock up while you still can.
Sylvain Pataille 2019 Marsannay Rouge
The best grower in this underrated corner of Burgundy. Delicious, sought-after wines that are immediately enjoyable. His 2019 village Marsannay is in stock now.
R. Lopez de Heredia 2010 Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rosado
We have a few bottles of this ultra-rare rosé Rioja from the great bastions of tradition, R. Lopez de Heredia. A rosé like no other.
Jean Foillard 2020 Morgon 'Côte du Py'
One of the iconic wines of Beaujolais is back. Our allocation of Foillard's 2020 Côte du Py is landing in the next week. Almost irresistible on release, but I had a bottle of 2016 a week ago which was singing. Worth stocking up while you can.
Thymiopoulos Rosé de Xinomavro and Earth & Sky
A restock of 2020 Rosé de Xinomavro and the flagship 2019 Earth & Sky due to arrive tomorrow. Earth & Sky may be the best introduction to the Xinomavro variety. And the rosé is outstanding, with a moreish, sun-dried tomato quality that marks it out as special. A real bargain and a serious, yet delicious wine.
Also coming in shortly and available to pre-order, Koehler-Ruprecht's 2016 Spätlese Trocken, a new vintage of Tetramythos' Orange Roditis, and the 2014 release of Gonet's sublime Grand Cru Mesnil Sur Oger Champagne.
What a week - don't miss out.
