A Portfolio Tasting in Scotland

A Portfolio Tasting in Scotland

Last week we welcomed guests to the New Club in Edinburgh for a Portfolio tasting, our first tasting in Scotland for two years.

With views overlooking Edinburgh Castle, the top floor rooms at the New Club provided the perfect setting to showcase a snapshot of our 3,000 strong portfolio. It is always a daunting process for our Buyers to pick a broad sweep of bottles to show clients at our tastings, representing some of our best and brightest producers, however, with more than 100 wines opened from across France, Germany, Spain, Austria, South Africa, Champagne, America, South America, Australia and New Zealand, there were plenty of old favourites and new gems for guests to discover.

Since 1749 we have been supplying the very finest wines and spirits to our customers in Great Britain and beyond.  

Portfolio has always sat at the very heart of Justerini & Brooks. This is why we invest so much and take such pride in how and what we source.  Our six Buyers spend half of the year travelling and tasting in cellars around the globe. Their aim is to track down the world’s finest wines, those that speak of their origins and that our customers will delight in drinking. We directly import from over 300 producers, including the greatest, scarcest names such as Pétrus, Château Lafleur, Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair and Domaine Armand Rousseau. But at Justerini & Brooks we have always valued the undiscovered gem just as much as the famous label.  It is why we have always extolled the virtues of German wine, why we were championing red Burgundy over twenty five years ago before anyone was interested and why we have been banging the drum for Piedmont since the mid-nineties.

The Justerini & Brooks team interviewed the Bordeaux winemakers and Château owners in February and asked their thoughts of the 2016 vintage months ahead of release.

Last Thursday, we hosted our annual portfolio tasting in Hong Kong. The Azure, with its stunning panoramic views of the city, was the perfect location for this spectacular event.

Our Buying Director and Hong Kong team hand-picked 50 wines from our esteemed portfolio for our guests to sample; quite the challenge given the quality of our range. It was nonetheless a great introduction to those new to Justerini & Brooks, and an excellent opportunity to enjoy some gems from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and a myriad of other regions.

We were joined by over 120 guests throughout the evening. As a special surprise for guests on the night, we opened a 6-litre bottle of 1989 Château Mouton Rothschild, which caused much excitement. The theatre of a large format never fails to impress!

Last month, we hosted a tasting of Champagne and Rhône wines at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the city. 

It was a superb evening; the buzz surrounding the wines was tangible and we were thrilled to welcome so many guests, journalists and growers alike.
