The Friday List - 3/3/2023
Big Bottle Bordeaux
As we teased last Friday, we’re back with Part Two of our blockbuster Bordeaux offer… this time with large formats. This selection comes from the same cellar as last week’s, pristine provenance and all, a testament to what a great collector this person is. When they go big, they go really big: with magnums, 3-liters, and 6-liters—and even a 9-liter of a 100-point wine. Any serious Bordeaux collector could take pointers from this extraordinary list on how to build a legendary cellar. And just like last week, we’ve got Pétrus… this time in magnums!
Being the professional nerds we are, the most genuinely exciting aspect of today’s collection for us is its provenance. We simply don’t have the time to photograph every bottle to show off how clean they are, but trust us: we wanted to. The bedrock of Domaine’s business is caring for your wines, so when we have an opportunity to assemble an offer with bottles we’ve followed, handled, and stored throughout their lives ex-château, it’s a dream come true—for us and you. Now, about the wines!
This would be a dizzyingly remarkable list just in 750s, but to see an extensive selection of large formats from greats like Lafite, Latour, Margaux, Cheval Blanc, Ausone, and Pichon Lalande? Almost unthinkable outside an auction catalogue. There are even “rising stars” (and their enticing prices) aplenty, such as Canon, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Haut-Bailly, and Rauzan-Ségla. Other market stalwarts like Palmer, Cos, Duhart-Milon, Carruades de Lafite, and VCC will deliver tremendous pleasure to you and your lucky friends and family, whenever you decide to open one of these refined behemoths. But inventory on many of these is limited to a single bottle, so if you see something you like, definitely do not hesitate to claim it!
