Wine Collection Starter Set | Classic Collectors Wines
This Wine Collection Starter Set brings four fantastic feature wines together in an exclusive offer. Starting a proper wine collection is one of life’s true pleasures and a sure sign that you’ve “grown up and made it” in life. If you’ve been longing to begin collecting fine wine, but haven’t been certain of where to start, this set is for you. A compilation of four Classic Collectors Wines that will reward patience and deliver magic in 10-15 years.
Talenti Brunello di Montalcino 2012
Leading off the Wine Collection Starter Set is a Brunello di Montalcino, which along with Barolo are the great collector’s wines of Italy. Brunello is the king of Tuscan wines, and of the Sangiovese grape specifically. Talenti’s complex, wonderfully deep Brunello is one of the stars of the 2012 vintage. Will develop lovely porcini and truffle layers and melt in your mouth tannins between 2020 and 2025.
La Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape 2014
Chateauneuf du Pape is the greatest appellation in the southern Rhone producing distinctively rich, powerful reds with dried fruit and herb complexity. Claire Michel worked at Harlan before coming back to her family’s Chateauneuf estate, where she is crafting classy elegant wines. This is a fine, perfumed, classically structured Chateauneuf that will develop grilled meat complexity and textural richness between 2020 and 2024. Clearly a great choice for the Classic Collectors Wines.
Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014
Julien Fayard is one of Napa’s superstar winemakers. And this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon comes from legendary Napa vineyards such as Beckstoffer To Kalon, Missouri Hopper, Martinez, and Teucer. This combination of site and skill has produced a compelling, densely concentrated, powerfully structured Cabernet that will develop even more chocolatey richness and smoothness between 2025 and 2030. What would the Wine Collection Starter Set be without a superb Napa Cab?
Chateau Mille Roses Haut Medoc 2014
No Classic Collectors Wines cellar is complete without the classic wines of Bordeaux. This is a fine Cabernet Sauvignon predominant wine from the left bank commune of Haut Medoc. While from a property situated between classified growth estates Château Giscours and Château Cantemerle. Most of all, this is everything good claret should be. Most noteworthy notes display cassis, cedar with firm, fine tannins. As a result, will develop classic foie gras complexity and a mellowed texture between 2020 and 2024.
