Vintners' Company Pauillac 2016
Specially commissioned and direct from the producer
The Wine Committee is delighted to present an unmissable and one-off opportunity to the Company’s membership.
We have been able to secure a parcel of fabulous 2016 Pauillac directly from the producer and have had our own Company label specially commissioned.
This exceptional wine is made and Château-bottled by one of the world’s greatest wine producers of the highest possible Classification in their vineyard in the heart of Pauillac.
Via our direct contacts in Bordeaux we have been permitted to buy and sell a parcel of the wine at a very advantageous price on the understanding that we do not reveal who makes it!
£185.00 per case of 6 bottles
(Including duty, VAT & UK delivery)
This also includes a £ 30.00 donation to The Vintners’ Foundation.
“Bright and lively in appearance though still with depth and blackness at the core. Fine, focussed nose that is just opening with red apple skin, cranberry, blackcurrant, Demerara spice notes. Pauillac is known for intensity and complexity of fruit but in combination with a sense of terroir. Here graphite and mineral notes balance both nose and palate. The dense, black fruit core is locked in to the mid palate by fine and fresh acids and tannins, typical of this beautifully poised vintage. We enjoyed it as it is but expect perfect harmony in 2021 to 2025.”
James Handford M.W., August 2019
After vinification and maturation in oak barrels for 20 months, it was bottled at the Château and is now ready to receive our own labels before shipment to Davy’s Wine Merchants’ Cellars in late October.
Delivery will be arranged directly by Davy’s Wine Merchants and should be sometime in November.
The wine will be packed in cartons of 6 x 75cl bottles.
