Just Released: VCC and 2nd Tranche Margaux, Mouton, Cos and Montrose

This morning, 2016 Vieux Château Certan was released onto the market. This lauded Pomerol estate neighbors the famed Château Pétrus and was awarded 97-100 points by Anotnio Galloni. Availability is extremely limited, so do not miss the chance to secure this stunner at first tranche pricing.

We are also happy to be able to release a small second tranche offering of some of the hottest wines of the vintage, all of which had previously sold out, including potential 100 point wines Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Cos d’Estournel and Chateau Montrose.

  2016 Bordeaux Futures - Released Today
Case Price
Vieux Château Certan
97-100 AG
"The 2016 Vieux Château Certan is a wine of extraordinary beauty. Rich, seamless and voluptuous in the glass, it exudes sensuality in all of its dimensions. Tasted as a hypothetical blend, the 2016 is less expressive than the separate lots were when I tasted them a few months ago. A rush of dark cherry, inky blue/purplish fruit, crushed rocks, lavender and rose petal infuses the creamy, voluptuous finish. The 2016 manages to be dense and rich, but with no excess weight. It is quite simply a remarkable wine." (97-100 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2017
  2016 Bordeaux Futures - 2nd Tranche
Château Cos d'Estournel [2nd Tranche]
98-100 AG
"...extremely detailed with blackberry and a touch of boysenberry...The palate has astonishing: exquisite balance, perhaps the most precise and detailed Cos d'Estournel that I have encountered...The persistence, the reverberation in the mouth is quite magnificent.." (98-100 points) Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230, April 2017
Château Margaux (6 bottle case) [2nd Tranche]
97-100 AG
"...a wine of superb persistence, understated power and total refinement. There is wonderful depth and intensity to the ripe red and purplish-hued fruits, accompanied by mint, rose petal and sweet spice overtones that develop in the glass. The 2016 finishes with great aromatic lift and freshness. It has been absolutely compelling on the two occasions I have tasted it so far." (97-100 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2017
Château Montrose [2nd Tranche]
97-99 WA
"...sophisticated bouquet with blackberry, briary, a touch of blue fruit and violets...The palate is very fresh on the entry. The first facet of this wine that strikes you is the freshness that lasts from start to finish. This is an animated, vivacious Montrose that starts in almost understated fashion yet builds in the mouth towards what is almost a sensual finish..." (97-99 points) Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230, April 2017
Château Mouton Rothschild (6 bottle case) [2nd Tranche]
100 JS
"This is a phenomenal, muscular red that shows incredible power and depth. Full-bodied and with great concentration of tannins but this remains agile and polished. The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better." (100 points) JamesSuckling.com, April 4, 2016
