PRE DEPARTURE OFFER Maison Blanche Grand Vin Montagne Saint Emilion 2007
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRE-DEPARTURE OFFER AND THE WINE ARRIVES IN AUSTRALIA IN JANUARY 2020 WHEN THE PRICE WILL RISE 20% ABOVE WHAT YOU CAN GET IT FOR HERE.
Maison Blanche "Grand Vin" 2007. 2007 does not have a reputation equal with 2005 and 2010 but it is a year that has benefitted massively from age. 07 lacked the feisty fruitiness of young, great vintages, and it had higher acidity and rougher tannins - when it was young. But those same characteristics that were a bit off-putting in youth are exactly what has allowed 07s to age brilliantly. Time has polished the tannins to mahogany smoothness and allowed the acidity to drop out and disappear, resulting in a Maison Blanche 2007 that is a simply outstanding example of aged claret, stunningly pretty with a fine and elegant build. And because it wasn't a vintage that got hysterical write-ups when it was new, its wines are also very under-valued. Drink now to 2025. Post-arrival price will be $58.8 per bottle. Today's pre-departure price is $49* and a complete bargain in my opinion. 24 bottles available.
