    Weingut Gross

    Slovenia (Slovenia), Styria (Slovenia)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Complex bouquet of orange and lemon zest, tropical fruits as well as a sprinkling of vanilla and fennel. Solid backbone with a flinty, mouth watering acidity and a well integrated oaky touch adding some complexity. This is a beautifully concentrated, intense wine with a lingering finish.

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that stretch out slowly as the wine opens up. Displays excellent definition on a very long, lively finish that's given shape by chewy, building tannins. (JR) "

    "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Reserve is brilliant stuff. I was able to taste this from two separate bottles and it never failed to impress. Coming from all the estate terroirs, and including some seriously top juice, its deep purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, spiced meats, and incense, with an undeniable mineral/dried earth character developing with time in the glass. With full-bodied richness, ripe, yet present tannin, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 10-15 years. 93+"

    "The 2015 Cote Rotie Reserve is rich, velvety-textured and long. Raspberries and herbal notes are joined by hints of cured meat in this medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for up to 15 years. (JC)"

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Lard, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Fremiers was cropped at just 9 hectoliters per hectare, or two barrels, this vintage. It has a gentle bouquet that works up through the gears with aeration, developing lovely mineral-rich red cherry and strawberry fruit with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite poised and focused, not a powerful or fruit-driven Pommard but brimming over with tension and poise. Excellent."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "There is enough wood to warrant mentioning but not enough to overshadow the wonderfully spicy aromas of plum, black cherry and cassis. I very much like the texture of the extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that are at once powerful yet refined, all wrapped in a very firm, balanced and long finish."

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Lard, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets was not touched by frost this vintage according to winemaker Thomas Bouley. It has a very focused, energetic bouquet that unfurls with alacrity in the glass, offering more black fruit than red and subtle earthy/loamy tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, bright and tensile with just a little attenuation on the finish that I am sure will not be there once in bottle. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle and you will have a quintessential Caillerets."

    Bodegas Alonso

    Jerez (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    4 x 375 ml

    Cured Meat


    4-bottle Historic Saca Set. Only 500 sets produced.

     

    1 x 375 ml Gaspar Florido Amontillado | 90-100 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Palo Cortado | 60-70 years old

    1 x 375ml Gaspar Florido Palo Cortado "Tú no te Olvides"  | 110-120 years old

    1 x 375ml Pedro Romero Oloroso | 60-70 years old

     

    "Part of a four-bottle pack and not sold separately, the NV Amontillado, the top of the range presented in a square-ish/short, round, stocky bottle, comes from a very old solera from Gaspar Florido of Manzanilla origin. It is sharp and vertical with signs of very old age, powerful and concentrated but keeping elegance, poise and balance. This is truly outstanding and world class."

    97 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Dec 2017

     

    "One of two Palo Cortados, the NV Palo Cortado was bottled from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was Pedro Romero. It also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately. "

    "The NV Palo Cortado "Tu no te Olvides" also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately, so the price is only approximate as it's not yet exported and is only sold as part of a four-bottle lot. This comes from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was said to be the Ansa Real solera of Gaspar Florido, a mythical, iconic wine. It has more Palo Cortado character than the other one in the series. There is some creaminess and some nutty aromas with a combination of sharp and rounder characteristics on the palate that make it a good example of the style."

    "Presented in the same stocky bottle as the Amontillado, the single-cask NV Oloroso, whose origin is a very old wine from Pedro Romero believed to be 60 to 70 years of age, is extremely old, concentrated and powerful, with parameters off the charts by pure evaporation and concentration through old age. It's intense, pungent and penetrating, with a sweet touch that softens the sensation on the palate."
