It’s Not Napa - Peter Michael Les Pavots – Gorgeous California Cabernet

Sotheby's Wine
One of California’s Greatest Bordeaux Blends


IMPECCABLE TASTE
It’s not in Napa, but, rather, in Sonoma’s Knights Valley where one of California’s greatest and most refined Cabernet Sauvignon based wines is made year in and year out. Peter Michael’s Les Pavots is an extraordinary wine of the highest quality. With approximately 3000 cases made each year, Les Pavots is a rare treat we wish more of our clients had the opportunity to know — with the selection we currently have in stock, now is the time to try.

CALIFORNIA TERROIR, FRENCH SENSIBILITY
Made by the impeccable French winemaker Nick Morlet, Pavots is never a summer blockbuster of a wine, with an epic soundtrack or a swarming army of CGI trolls; but, instead, has the personality of a subtle and nuanced indie film, backed by the deft balance and harmony of a chamber orchestra.

The wine is usually two thirds Cabernet, with the remainder of the blend filled out with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot, always with an eye towards Bordeaux tradition. We currently have in stock a three vintage vertical of Les Pavots from 2009 — 2011. All three vintages were cooler than normal for Sonoma which further reduced quantities, but allowed for Nick to retain terrific freshness along with intensity in the final wines.

PETER MICHAEL LES PAVOTS SIZE PRICE (US$)
2009
A cool year reduced quantities to just under 3500 cases. Deeply concentrated the 2009 Pavots is remarkably approachable even now.
750ML US$199.95

#
2010
Only approximately 3000 cases produced. 2010 has weight counterbalanced perfectly by a mineral trace from this great terroir. Almost Pauillac-like.
750ML US$195.00

#
2011
Just over 3000 cases produced, and the highest proportion of Cabernet (73%) in this vintage lineup. A later harvest retained a terrific ripeness and luxurious texture in the wine to match with the lively blackberry juiciness.
750ML US$195.00

Grand Cru Champagne from R & L Legras

Sotheby's Wine
Grand Cru Champagne from R & L Legras


GRAND CRU CHAMPAGNE
Introducing our house champagne, R & L Legras. This family property is located in Chouilly, a small village just outside Épernay, the town which is the epicenter of Champagne.

Due to their prime location in the heart of the Chardonnay vineyards of the Côte des Blancs, all the Legras wines are made from 100% Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards.

NON-VINTAGE
At $299 the Legras Blanc de Blancs NV represents a great buy: full of citrus fruit, brioche and floral flavours, this is ideal as an aperitif or with lighter dishes. Fresh and delicious, the bottle doesn’t last long. We also have half bottles available ($175).

PRÉSIDENCE
Présidence is the name of the vintage champagne produced at Legras. The current vintage is the 2005, an excellent year in the region. The wine has more depth and power than its non-vintage sibling, as well as a dry, mineral core which may derive from the old vines used as its base. This is an outstanding buy for $420.

A New Discovery in Bordeaux with Royal Pedigree

Sotheby's Wine
Introducing Clarendelle Pessac-Léognan


A NEW DISCOVERY
We are always looking to source classic Bordeaux for fair prices, so we’re delighted to present our most recent discovery: Clarendelle Pessac-Léognan 2008 ($29.95 or $359.40/case).

Clarendelle is a project from Domaine Clarence Dillon, owners of Château Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion. It offers wines made with all the expertise of those great estates, but at a fraction of the price.

We poured the Pessac-Léognan at our auction in New York last weekend, and our clients greeted it enthusiastically. It’s not hard to see why: this is complex, sophisticated Bordeaux with a strong sense of its terroir. The smoky ‘ashiness’ and hint of cohiba cigar that we associate with the wines of Pessac-Léognan is very evident, and the finish is long and soft. There is no need to age it further.

This is an outstanding buy as a house wine (by the case) for everyday drinking and will appeal to lovers of classic Bordeaux.

For more information please contact Eli or me: Eli.Rodriguez@Sothebys.com or Nicholas.Jackson@Sothebys.com, or call: +1 212.894.1990.

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.
