1995 Dom Perignon Brut Champagne Methusalum
$10,000 Value

Dom Perignon in 6 Liter format is incredible rare and we will be starting off the evening with this gem and with only 30 people in our group we will have plenty to share for most of the evening.


1999 Louis Jadot Montrachet Grand Cru 3 Liter
Price: $1995.00

The rarest of all the grand cru whites of Burgundy and very hard to find in large format this is the only bottle that we have ever had here at Wine Watch so its only fitting that we drink it!

 

1961 Louis Jadot Beaune Clos de Ursules 3 Liter

Price: Priceless - it is very rare to have a big bottle this old!!

 

The  red  wines  from  the  central  and  southern  parts  are  powerful,  tannic,  and deeply coloured while those from the northern area are generally less intensely coloured with softer fruit flavours.

The  Beaune  1er  Cru  «Clos  des  Ursules»  is  a  walled  in  portion  of  the  Beaune  1er Cru «Vignes Franches». It was purchased in 1826 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot and has remained a solely owned property of the Jadot family.

 

2005 Tenuta Dell Ornellaia Masseto Tuscany 3 Liter
Price: $3000

(96 points)  *Collectibles* Smells like chocolate mousse, with crushed raspberry and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a rich, fruity finish. This is powerful and structured Merlot, with layers and layers of everything. Needs time to come around. (JS) (10/2008) Wine Spectator

 

2003 Grace Family Blank Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 6 Liter
$1500 Value

In 1976, Napa Valley was a farming community with more cattle, prunes, olives and hay than world-famous wines. That was the year Dick and Ann Grace jumped on the opportunity to buy an estate in St. Helena that included an 1881 Victorian, in dire need of renovation, and 3.5 acres of land, mostly planted with olives.

For most people, embarking on such an adventure would have required a plan, but for Dick the motivation was simple: this was the place he felt like he belonged. For a successful stockbroker, and a Marine Corps officer to boot, having such feelings was certainly a surprise. Listening to them and acting on them was downright radical, but not for Dick and Ann as they have always trusted their intuition. The Vineyards The Graces were among the first in Napa to implement high-density vine planting and organic farm management. After carefully moving the mature olive trees on the front acre of the property, they put in more than 1,140 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosché clone vines, twice as many per acre as was then customary. In 1978, they harvested their first commercial crop, which amounted to a paltry 49 cases of wine. One case was dropped and broken, reducing the total number of cases to 48. In 1987, they brought the winemaking in-house, and in 1985 their son

Kirk oversaw the planting of an additional acre. With phylloxera and oak root fungus compromising their acre age of vines, a replanting was undertaken in 1994, this time with a whopping 3,465 vines to the acre.

A third contiguous acre owned by the Perry family planted with the same Bosché clone Cabernet was added in 2000, bringing the total to a still - tiny 3.5 acres of vines, which yields roughly 500 cases of wine annually. The Winery The Grace Family estate is known as one of Napa Valley’s most iconic and prestigious properties, with its beautifully restored Victorian home, winery, organic gardens, sculptures and

art from the family’s frequent travels to Nepal and Tibet. Adjacent to their home is the 2,500-square-foot,jewel-box winery designed by friend, architect and fellow Napa winery owner Jon Lail. The stone façade frames hand-carved double oak doors that open to a carefully created space for fermenting and barrel aging.

The post-and-beam vaulted ceiling lends the space a temple-like feel. This is a true gem of a winery. The Estate Scattered around the property are mature olive trees, some more than 110 years old, that were moved to make way for Cabernet Sauvignon vines. The original orchard field mixture of Picholine, Sevillano, some Mission trees and other European varieties were augmented in the 1990s with Italian varieties such as Frantoio and Leccino. Each year, Ann leads the hand harvesting of the trees to produce Grace Family Vineyards Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They use the same commitment and care to the craft of producing the olive oil as they do with their Cabernet Sauvignon, and production has increased with the proper pruning, care, as well as the incorporation ofvarious organic and biodynamic farming practices. Akoi pond and flower and vegetable gardens lie between the Grace home and the winery

 

2003 Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 3 Liter
Price: $5950.00    Your Price: $4960.00
Quantity in Stock: 1

(100 Points) A modern day version of the 1959 Lafite, the 2003 Lafite Rothschild was bottled in mid-May, 2005 after achieving 12.9% natural alcohol - hardly an astonishing figure given the vintage's weather conditions. A combination of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, it represents a ripe version of the essence of Lafite-Rothschild. Dense purple-colored, with classic notes of graphite intertwined with melted licorice, creme de cassis, smoke, and flowers, it reveals extraordinary richness, opulence, power, purity, intensity, and viscosity. Whether this wine will close down or not is questionable as it is somewhat atypical given its sweetness and softness. Analytically, there are extremely high tannins, which I suspect will assert themselves in the future. Production in 2003 was less than half of normal. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2050.
