$44.95
WE93-95JS93-94WA90-92

$45? Really? You'll be racing our own staff to lay in a 6-pack of a wine that Galloni called one of the most beautiful and expressive wines of the year. Dark, sensual and inviting, it possesses remarkable depth and textural richness. All the elements are in the right place. Silky tannins, bright red fruit and soaring, lifted aromatics all contribute to the wine's sensual personality. Consulting winemakers Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu are doing absolutely brilliant work here." The QPR meter is pegged in the red zone on this one!

NOTE: PRE-ARRIVAL OFFERING; WINE ARRIVES IN FALL 2019; YOUR ORDER IS NOT FINAL UNTIL CONFIRMED BY YOUR WINE SCOUT.
