2005 Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru (BH94)
I used to have some of this exact wine and in half bottles too. It’s a big burly, juicy ripe black-fruited classic Mazis. This is really good stuff.
Half Bottles – HK$700 per half bottle – 12 available
2012 Weingut Karthauserhof Eitelsbacher Karthauserhofberg Auslese #42 Auktion
Slips down the throat like the name rolls off the tongue! This is beautifully pure elegant fruity-style riesling made from one of the greatest vineyards. Mike and I bought this wine in the annual VDP auction in Trier, this cuvee being a single fuder selection of the very finest auslese made at the estate in that classic vintage. It is elegant enough to enjoy now with dim sum or as zippy refined sipping wine for a warm, slightly humid Spring afternoon (specifically!). The quality is outstanding for the price.
Half Bottles – HK$380 per half bottle – 3 cases of 12 available
1996 Chateau Rauzan-Segla (WA88)
To be honest, this isn’t that amazing. It’s one of the few chateaux in the Medoc where I really prefer the ’95 over the ’96. But it is pretty, elegant, and is now right in its drinking window. It’s not easy to tick all those boxes and also not break the bank. Food friendly.
Half Bottles – HK$360 per half bottle – 3 x original wooden cases of 24 halves each.
The long-awaited 2014 Hospices de Beaune offer is finally here! For those who got married, had a newborn child, or started your company in 2014, this is the wine to get. Last year our 2013 Hospices Corton sold out within a couple days, so act fast!
2014 (Thibault Liger-Belair) Hospices de Beaune Corton Grand Cru, Cuvée Dr. Peste
– available by the 1/4 barrel share (6 cases) for HK$75,600 per share ($1,050 per bottle)
Join us in your very own share of a barrel of fine Burgundy. You can put your name, the name of your 2014-born child, the name of a couple who got engaged or married in 2014, or who celebrated a significant anniversary, or you can put the name of your company for corporate gifts on the officially printed labels. We will arrange this for you as part of the service.
This is a really delightful vintage, emphasising ripeness, fleshiness, and roundness. Those who want to dip in relatively early will find something to enjoy, but in our experience with the Corton Grand Cru Dr Peste, it is a great one for the cellar, with 20 or 30 years cellaring easily possible, with an attractive fine aged red Burgundy at the end of it.
With only 4 shares available per barrel obviously this is a very limited offer, and is offered on a first-come first-served basis. Our 2013 of this sold out very quickly, so email us NOW!
We went through our entire Bordeaux and Champagne stock list (all 570 line items) and slashed prices wherever we could. There is an abundance of legendary wines and we want you and your friends to have them!

We are delighted to offer this parcel of Ridge Monte Bello in original cases. Here are 2 spectacular vintages of Monte Bello – 2008 (WA97+) and 2009 (WA98). With California cult wines soaring in prices, here’s an estate that offers not only superb quality, but also great value (only HKD 1,300-1,400) and amazing history backed by solid track record.
2008 RIDGE MONTE BELLO (WA97+)
8cs of CASE6 available at HKD 7,800 per 6 btl
"... a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. Yields were just 1.25 tons per acre on average, but some of the older vineyards came in at less than 1 ton per acre. The balance of fruit, tannin and structure is simply extraordinary, but the wine needs time, most likely lots of it. In 2008 the blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. "
2009 RIDGE MONTE BELLO (WA98)
15cs of CASE6 available at HKD 8,400 per 6 btl
"72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot is simply magnificent. Layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and graphite are all woven together in this utterly impeccable wine. The 2009 is an especially huge, intense Monte Bello, yet a sexy, silky core of fruit lies within its imposing frame. Everything comes together in this glorious, radiant wine. Last year the 2009 had some pretty stiff competition from the 2010, but today it is simply firing on all cylinders. Eric Baugher describes 2009 as a year with cold weather early on, followed by heat in early June and July. The fruit was brought in on October 12, just before an intense downpour swept through the region. There is a purity and silkiness supported by structure in the 2009 that is impossible not to admire. Simply put, this is another utterly magnificent, towering masterpiece from Ridge. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2049. "
Dorothee and her father Hanno Zilliken make some of the finest Rieslings of the Mosel. Their top vineyard, the Rausch from the picture postcard medieval town of Saarburg makes wines with a special lime leaf and citrus scent and flavour, and fantastic fresh-fruit acid snap. The Saar is cooler than the Middle Mosel, and really excels in warmer vintages like 2012.
2012 was simply a standout year for the Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken, and their best Riesling Spatlese went to auction - the ONLY place you get to buy this very special wine. Only 600 bottles produced (yes bottles, not cases!). We were bowled over by its fragrance, and razor sharp cut between juicy mouthwatering fruit, and mineral acidity. We liked it so much that we decided to buy half the total production and brought the wines back to HK for wine lovers like yourself. This wine is already delicious, will go brilliantly right now with classic Cantonese food, especially wok fried crab, lobster and fish dishes, as well as roast meats, but it can also age gracefully for around 3 to 4 decades at least.
We highly recommend this wine to you.
