Glorious St. Julien: Gruaud Larose

Sotheby's Wine
Classic Bordeaux, Fairly Priced

VALUE AND QUALITY
One of Bordeaux’s most consistent and best value estates, Gruaud Larose produces archetypal, rich, cedary Bordeaux. In recent years it has become one of our best-selling properties, consistently rewarding drinkers with classic Bordeaux for fair prices.

Our selection of Gruaud Larose spans ten vintages in a range of formats, and we also have a few vintages of the elegant second wine, Sarget de Gruaud Larose.

FROM 1982 TO 2010
Our selection of the Grand Vin represents many of the classic vintages in Bordeaux’s last thirty years, and while the wines age beautifully, they are not so dense as to be inaccessible in the first five or ten years of life. Here are my picks.

  • Gruaud Larose 1988 ($195) — from an underrated vintage, this makes for excellent drinking and is at perfect maturity now
  • Gruaud Larose 1989 1.5L ($445) — snap up our last couple of magnums from this great vintage, very fresh in large format. Also available in bottles ($229)
  • Gruaud Larose 1995 ($129.95) — great value for an almost 20 year old wine from a very good vintage
  • Gruaud Larose 1996 ($164) — we love this vintage, perhaps the most well balanced of any in the 1990s for the Médoc — this is gorgeous wine. Also available in half bottles ($84.95)
  • Gruaud Larose 2001 ($109.95) — who says all Bordeaux is too expensive? Here is a second growth Bordeaux from a delicious vintage, ready to drink now
  • Gruaud Larose 2005 ($129.95) — a vintage for the ages, and particularly so out of 6 liter imperial ($1395)

The Interview - No 22: Elisa Scavino

Sotheby's Wine
 THE INTERVIEW – NO 22
Elisa Scavino
Elisa Scavino is the 32 year old granddaughter of Paolo Scavino, who founded the Piedmont winery that bears his name in 1921. It is very much a family business and Elisa works closely, as winemaker, with her father, Enrico, and her sister Enrica, who handles the marketing. They produce a wide range of excellent, affordable Dolcetto, Barbera and Langhe Nebbiolo, as well as seven top class Barolos.
CHILDHOOD, ADOLESCENCE & EARLY PROFESSIONAL LIFE
Where were you born?
I was born in Cuneo, a city in the Piedmont region, close to the French border.
What was your best memory growing up?
Our family ski vacation in Cervinia with my sister, my mom and my dad. It was late afternoon and it was just us on a long sweet slope. We had an incredible sunset and a beautiful family time.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A winemaker. I was also passionate about Archeology and Opera.
Where/what did you study?
I studied in Alba at the Oenology School for 6 years, then Viticulture and Oenology at the University in Turin for 3 years.
Who was your mentor?
My dad, Enrico

What are your views on agriculture: Sustainable? Organic? Biodynamic?
I believe in careful observation and respect of nature. I think the best practice is for a wine grower to use their experience, passion and sensitivity to take care of the vineyards, adapting their work to the needs of the vines in order to preserve their health. I think it’s very interesting to follow the moon cycles, which has been a traditional practice for many centuries.
What was the best advice you ever received?
My mom AnnaMaria has always been one of the most inspiring people in my life, through both her love for the family and her rectitude. The most beautiful advice was given by a great family friend — he told me “To always love, because love would always win”.
LIKES & DISLIKES
What instantly brings a smile to your face?
My dog Lino!
What instantly makes you frown?
Poverty of spirit in different circumstances.
Outside wine, what is your passion?
The sea. I love sailing, even if I don’t do it so often. Fairy tales with illustrations and pop up books.
What was the last music you downloaded?
Queen: Live, Wembley Stadium, July 1986
What is the last movie you saw?
Life of Pi.
What’s your guilty secret?
Listening to music at high volume!
What “addiction” would you most like to give up?
Maybe, I would like to be able to take a long vacation somewhere!

What are you craving right now?
Chocolate ice cream or a piece of chocolate cake
Are you superstitious?
No.
Sunday: Brunch or Lunch?
Lunch on Sunday. Breakfast is my favorite time of the day though.
EVERY DAY
Who was the first person you spoke to today?
My aunt Angela.
Early to rise, late to bed; burn the candle at both ends?
Generally, I like to go to bed not too late and I like to sleep at least 8 hours. I love the early morning, especially at the seaside when there is no one else on the street or on the beach.
How do you keep in shape?
I am pretty lazy. I watch my diet and “spinning”.
Diet or eat everything?
I like to eat healthy, fresh and light. I love purity of flavors.
What are you reading now?
La briscola in cinque" by Marco Malvaldi.
FAMILY
Wife/Husband/Lover?
No.
Children?
Not yet.
FAVOURITES

Favourite place to vacation?
A combination of the sea and the islands: Capri and Positano.
Favourite hotel in the world?
Le Sirenuse and Il San Pietro in Positano.
Favourite local hotel?
Palas Cerequio in La Morra.
Favourite restaurant in the world?
Sushi Yoshitake in Tokyo.
Favourite restaurant locally?
Piazza Duomo in Alba.
Favourite city to visit?
Napoli, Rome and New York.
Favourite airline?
Emirates Airlines.
Favourite wine/vintage from your winery?
Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata 2001.
Favourite wine/vintage, that is not yours?
Montrachet, Comte Lafon 1986. It was an unforgettable and touching experience that Peter Wasserman, very generously, shared with my father Enrico and me.
Favourite shop to buy clothes?
Brunello Cucinelli.
Favourite shoes?
Ascics Kinsei.

GREATEST
Achievement?
Yet to come!
Disappointment?
Disappointment would come from a lack of courage, from not facing problems. I think it’s the attitude that counts.
LAST SUPPER
If you can choose your perfect last supper before leaving this world, what would it be, who would it be with and what would you drink with it?
It would be, for sure, with my family. Small bites of several dishes that I love: prosciutto crudo with melon, tomato salad with basil, bread and olive oil, homemade tajarin with ragù, homemade agnolotti filled with ricotta cheese and spinach served with butter and sage, rabbit cooked with rosemary and peperonata, my aunt Angela’s chocolate pudding, baked peaches filled with chocolate and amaretti. I would drink sparkling water, white Burgundy (very probably from Comte Lafon), our Dolcetto d’Alba and Barolo Bric dël Fiasc. A nice mocca coffee with some “Baci di Alassio”.

Château Pichon Lalande: 1995 – 1996 – 1998 – 2000 – 2009 – 2010

Sotheby's Wine
 QUINTESSENTIAL BORDEAUX

A Beloved “Super-Second”

THE CHÂTEAU
When it comes to Bordeaux everyone has their favorites: some adore Lafite while others need their Mouton; some love Lynch Bages others Pontet Canet. However, amidst the strong opinions on favorites, one château consistently rises to the top as arguably Bordeaux’s most universally loved, respected and enjoyed wine: Château Pichon Lalande.

With terrific terroir, at the southern end of Pauillac, adjoining Château Latour and adjacent to St. Julien, this “Super-Second” is more graceful and elegant than powerful and profound, as is typically associated with Pauillac. Coupled with talented leadership throughout its history, Pichon Lalande is a classic wine, recognized for its style and beauty. Owned since 2008 by Roederer Champagne, the estate is now under the leadership of the talented and savvy Nicolas Glumineau, formerly of Montrose, perpetuating the Château’s exacting standards.

THE WINE
Pichon Lalande is most often defined by its unique, high proportion of Merlot as compared with most wines of the Médoc. The Merlot adds succulence and broader richness of fruit that adds to the overall charm of the wine, which mostly is very accessible and enjoyable even quite young. Built to last, Pichon Lalande is always balanced and refined.

Since 1973 the Château has made a second wine, Reserve de la Comtesse. A terrific wine in its own right, the 2nd wine has depth, concentration and underlying structure that preserves the legendary style of the Château, while allowing for earlier drinking with less cellar time required.

VINTAGES
Currently we have in stock over 10 vintages of Pichon Lalande and Reserve de la Comtesse. For the grand vin 1995 and 1996 are highlights of the decade, and would make for an extraordinary back-to-back comparative tasting. Magnums of 1998 are fun and ready to drink with an almost St. Julien-like texture. 2000 is an opulent treat and can be thoroughly enjoyed now. 2009 and 2010 are legends in the making and should be part of every cellar for the future.

Reserve de la Comtesse is ideal for early drinking. Try the 2006 which has an excellent, velvety texture, or the 2009 that has the richness and roundness of the vintage that can be enjoyed now while the big wine matures.

All wines in stock now.

First Release of Dom Pérignon’s New P2

Sotheby's Wine
 1998 — A Classic Vintage, Well Matured
Introducing P2 by Dom Pérignon PHOTO

THE CONCEPT
P2 is Dom Pérignon’s new name for what used to be called Oenothèque — Dom Pérignon which has extended bottle aging on the lees before release. The 1998, which we received today, is the first release of P2.

P2 is short for ‘second plenitude’ which reflects winemaker Richard Geoffroy’s belief that there are three different but equally rewarding expressions of Dom Pérignon. P1 is regular, vintage Dom Pérignon (the current release is 2004); P2 is aged on the lees for 12-14 years (the current vintage is this new 1998); and P3 sees more than 25 years aging before disgorgement.

THE WINE
We tasted 1998 P2 earlier this year with Vincent Chaperon, assistant winemaker at Dom Pérignon. He explained how every bottle of P2 is tasted when it is disgorged to check on its condition before being labelled and packaged. This ensures that every bottle/glass will be in great condition.

As for the wine itself: this is archetypal mature Dom Pérignon, full of mineral, truffly depths and vibrant fruit. Only recently disgorged, it tastes very young and fresh, but with more profundity and complexity than a recent release of a current (P1) vintage would do. Simply put, this is wonderful, vinous champagne.

Great Barolo: One Region, Many Styles

Sotheby's Wine

Wines for all Palates

KNOW YOUR STYLE
After a visit last summer to the beautiful Barolo wine region I have been increasingly enthusiastic about the wines. The best Barolos can age for as long as top Bordeaux and have the complexity and depth of flavour to match.

Our Barolo selection focuses on some of the most distinguished producers in the region, producing a range of different styles. If you’re not sure which style you enjoy, try one wine from each of the three categories below.

CLASSIC WINES
Bruno Giacosa is one of the most celebrated traditionalist producers in the region, making long lived and supremely elegant wines. The quantities produced are tiny, however, making them collectors’ items. At present we can offer:

In the same style but more accessible for all budgets are the wines of Mario Marengo. The wines are always pale in colour, beautifully perfumed with great complexity of flavour.

THE BEST OF BOTH
The wines of Elio Altare and Paolo Scavino tend to be made with a little more fruit extraction, giving rounder, richer wines. At the same time, they never lose the elegance which is such a distinguishing feature of the Nebbiolo variety. We have a good range of the excellent Scavino wines, but I have chosen to highlight just three below.

MODERN TRAILBLAZERS
These wines are the richest and most fully flavoured in the region. These producers combine great succulence of fruit with judicious use of new oak, resulting in powerful but soft wines.

Just Arrived: Mature Burgundy, Bordeaux and Italian

Sotheby's Wine

Stunning Wines to Drink Today

MATURE MAGIC
In recent days we received an excellent parcel of mature wines which are all available for immediate purchase and delivery. The emphasis here is on great producers and wines which have seen enough bottle age to develop some mature notes and additional complexity.

Look out especially for the stunning Cheval Blanc 1982, the magnums of La Fleur Petrus 1998 (wonderful, complete wine when tasted out of this format earlier this year) and the unusual chance to acquire top class, mature Amarone in the form of Bussola’s TB 1998. And if you have a sweet tooth, mature Prüm is a particular pleasure.

WHITE BURGUNDY

Discover Bordeaux’s Dry White Wines

Sotheby's Wine

Great Whites from Bordeaux’s Top Properties
PHOTO

A WINE FOR ALL SEASONS
On the cusp of the new season, white Bordeaux is a perfect accompaniment both for the warm late summer days and cooler autumnal nights. Almost always a blend of zesty Sauvignon Blanc and rich Semillon, Bordeaux’s dry whites are aromatic and crisp, but with enough body to support most foods (including spicy or Asian dishes).

AFFORDABLE GEMS
While the top white Bordeaux can reach the prices of some of the first growth reds, many excellent white Bordeaux remain easily within reach for everyday drinking.

My favourites include:

  • Marjosse Blanc 2012 — from Pierre Lurton, manager at Cheval Blanc and Yquem, this is fresh, vibrant and easy drinking ($16.95)
  • Clos des Lunes 2013 — this is a dry white from Sauternes with a touch of exoticism about it — full of interest and excellent value ($19.95)
  • Gazin Rocquencourt Blanc 2010 — from the owners of Malartic-Lagravière this is slightly richer while remaining fresh ($39.95)
  • Blanc de Lynch Bages 2012 — from a great estate, this is one of our best-selling whites. The only issue for us is getting enough volume — we sell out fast! ($54.95)

TOP DRY WHITES
Bordeaux’s best dry whites are among the finest white wines in the world. With great complexity and long term aging potential, whites from great estates such as Haut Brion, Yquem, Domaine de Chevalier and Margaux are eagerly sought by collectors.

  • Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 2009 — aromas of tropical fruits and minerality dominate here. This is consistently one of Bordeaux’s finest dry whites ($129.95)
  • Clarté de Haut Brion 2010 — this second white wine from Haut Brion and La Mission exhibits the trademark grapefruit aromas of Pessac-Léognan combined with beautiful elegance. Very good indeed from this outstanding vintage ($129.95)
  • Pavillon Blanc de Margaux 2012 — Château Margaux’s white is unusual because made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc. I have always loved this wine for its great beauty and complexity ($195)
  • ‘Y’ d’Yquem 2012 — this dry Sauternes was spectacular at the château earlier this year. One of the world’s great and most unique dry white wines ($194)

Great 2005 Bordeaux - Lying in Bordeaux

Sotheby's Wine

Wonderful Wines from 2005

THE OFFER
In our final of three direct from Bordeaux offers, we are pleased to offer well-priced, case quantity parcels of two outstanding wines from Bordeaux’s exceptional 2005 vintage.

The wines are available now, lying in Bordeaux, although the price includes shipment to either our New York or Hong Kong warehouse. This parcel has impeccable provenance and condition, having had only one owner since leaving the château, and has never left perfect storage in Bordeaux, all with original wooden cases.

Bottle ($) Case ($)
#
2005 Château Mouton Rothschild MAGNUMS (6 Cases Available) US $1,495 US $8,970
HK $11,590 HK $69,540
#
2005 Les Forts de Latour (25 Cases Available) US $239 US $2,868
HK $1,860 HK $22,320
#

Please note that we are only accepting full case purchases for these wines.

THE OPPORTUNITY
Some Bordeaux tasters believe that 2005 may be the most perfectly balanced vintage in recent memory (at least until 2010). With ample fruit, a powerful tannic structure and great finesse, 2005 is a vintage for the ages. At present the top wines remain extremely young, although for a second wine like Les Forts de Latour, the wine is beginning to open up and will and remain delicious for the next ten to fifteen years.

As for Mouton Rothschild, the 2005 has always been considered a contender for wine of the vintage. This is quintessential Mouton: powerful, with a cedar and spice nose and densely packed fruit. From magnum format, the longevity of this wine will only be increased — think about approaching it after 2025.

As with our previous offers, a first growth wine such as Mouton Rothschild also represents an investment opportunity: we have consistently seen high demand at auction and retail for Mouton, and in the long run (five to ten years, or longer) we expect values continue to rise.

To place an order in New York please email Jamie or me: Jamie.Ritchie@sothebys.com or Nicholas.Jackson@Sothebys.com, or call +1 212.894.1990.

Best of Chablis: Dauvissat & Raveneau 2008 - 2012

Sotheby's Wine

Dauvissat & Raveneau 2008 – 2012

CLASSIC CHABLIS
The time is right to explore Chablis. Its tell-tale mineral character and racy purity are the perfect antidote to warm weather. There is no better way to know the true character and nuance of this famous appellation than top-down, beginning with the greatest domaines of the region, Domaine François Raveneau and Domaine René & Vincent Dauvissat.

The domaines adhere to established family traditions of winemaking and produce the most classic style of Chablis which are unlike any Chardonnay produced in the world.

There never are enough of these wines produced annually to satisfy the Raveneau and Dauvissat club of addicts worldwide (of which we are admittedly members) and we jump at the chance to acquire whatever we can for our retail business. Our current stock, from both growers, is listed below representing five excellent vintages between 2008 — 2012. All wines are in stock and ready to ship.

DAUVISSAT
Regarded for their remarkable precision and purity, Dauvissat’s wines are Chablis at their most pristine, elegant and classic, allowing each terroir to express itself individually.

VINTAGES
2011 — especially transparent and focused in their flavor. With both ripeness of fruit and strong acidity, the wines are enticing, thirst-slaking even now, but will age gracefully over the next 5 — 10 years, especially at the premier and grand cru level.

2012 — difficult weather yielded the smallest vintage over the last five, but in the hands of a master like Vincent Dauvissat, they are fruitful, charming and precociously pretty. 2012s are hard to find but from our tastings the vintage is very good.

Bottle ($) Available
#
2011 Chablis $69.95 7
#
2011 Chablis Clos $205 24+
#
2012 Chablis Forest $94.95 24+
#
2012 Chablis Sechet $109.95 6
#
2012 Chablis Vaillons $109.95 6
#

RAVENEAU
With your nose in the glass, the olfactory mechanism that triggers the part of your brain where your most pleasurable memories live are instantly awakened with Raveneau. Renowned for trademark Chablis minerality coupled with intense honeyed, straw-like aromas and fruit, these wines are a real treat and rarely disappoint.

VINTAGES
2008 — a wonderful blend of freshness and ripe fruit that at six years old have now reached a terrific stage for drinking, but there is no hurry.

2009 — more mass with unctuous ripeness of fruit and slightly less acidity. These, too, can be enjoyed right now.

2010 — a great vintage and a favorite of growers and consumers alike. Intensely focused, they will need time to blossom. Drink the ’08s and ’09s while these mature.

Bottle ($) Available

2008 Chablis Butteaux $169 8
