Ex Chateau Durantou wines

... at opening prices.

If we were to imitate Decanter Magazine and nominate our ‘man (or woman) of the year’, the hot favourite would be Denis Durantou. We’ve been admirers of his wines for many years, but this year his 2012 Eglise Clinet was many people’s wine of the vintage (including Robert Parker). Denis’ 2012s literally flew off the shelves: Eglise Clinet, Petite Eglise, La Chenade and Les Cruzelles all went to ‘sold out’ in no time. After the success of the primeur campaign, Denis graciously and generously hosted an Eglise Clinet dinner at our office. Each magnum that he produced (and there were nine in total) was truly memorable and showcased his understanding of this unique terroir.

So, as such fans of Denis’ work, we were delighted when, quite unexpectedly, we received an offer of his recently bottled 2011s. Anyone who missed them first time around, don’t be disappointed, Denis has kept his prices exactly the same. It’s like Christmas has come early! Needless to say, these are hot stuff and stocks are limited, so please speak to your account manager ASAP or email to place your order.
