Wines a little less ordinary...
If you appreciate a beautifully crafted drop, you’re in the right place.
Here you’ll find top-performing Bordeaux from iconic châteaux
rubbing shoulders with little-known grape varieties and humble

And I must give special mention to our “On the QT” series. Each wine is
created by passionate winemakers and united by its depth of character
and exceptional taste. I heartily recommend you give them a taste.

Il Bruciato Bolgheri
A Super-Tuscan from a 600-year-old
A masterful red of aromatic richness with layers of opulent
spiced black fruit, Il Bruciato has all the hallmarks of a superior
Super Tuscan, but is yours at a fraction of the price. It comes
courtesy of one of the leading families in the Super Tuscan wine
revolution - the ancient Antinori family (shown left).
Do hurry - as ever, great things come in small packages.
Stocks are very limited.
We always ensure we have ample
supply of each Bordeaux vintage
when it’s released En Primeur. It
allows us to keep rarities from
the most in-demand chateaux
and treat customers to a host of
top-flight Claret with much of the
cellaring already complete. These
are some of the most sought-after
bottles on earth.
Château Chasse-Spleen 2010
Historic Bordeaux from a glorious vintage
Chasse Spleen translates roughly as "dispels melancholy". Legend has it that when visiting in 1821, Lord Byron was so taken by the beauty of the vines that he announced "Quel remede pour chasser le spleen" ("What a way to chase away the spleen"), and so the château was named after his declaration.
Château Chasse-Spleen displays more depth and complexity than the Médoc's more renowned classed growths, especially in the renowned 2010 vintage. Be swift for yours...
