RSecure your seat now to join me Shannon Noble for our first Rare Wine Dinner in Napa Valley California on Saturday 20th May 2017. We have a spectacular line up of Rare Wine, no less than 5 Bordeaux including some of the worlds greatest wines and vintages. These sorts of dinners are usually reserved for the fortunate few, this is your chance to secure a seat for a once in a lifetime type wine experience. We have been hosting these dinners for the last 8 years, all wines are sourced from cold European cellars, many from winemakers or producers cellars.
We will start the evening on a high note with a rare and perfect bottle of 1969 Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne, following which we begin to build up with White Burgundy from Leroy and the superb 1978 vintage. This will be followed by German Spatlese Riesling from the vintage of the 20th century, 1959 and a superbly rich 1976.
When would you ever see the opportunity to taste a magnum of 1945 Domaine Gros Richebourg Grand Cru?
This magnum of 1945 was made in extremely small quantities and gifted only to the very best customers of the Domaine many years ago. In my 20 years of wine collecting this is the first time I have seen such an immaculate and provenance guaranteed magnum of 45 Richebourg, this is Unicorn wine!!!
We will also taste 1969 Leroy Les Teurons a 10 out of 10 vintage for red Burgundy from one of the top producers in all of Burgundy. Then its all about rare Bordeaux: 1937 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1961 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1949 Chateau Latour, 1934 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion and a stunning bottle of 1955 Chateau La Conseillante. Some of these bottles alone will cost you thousands of dollars each if you can find one. To complete our run of red wines, a hand numbered 1975 Quintarelli Amarone, Amarone just does not get better than this! To finish we head back to 1945 with a Barsac Sauternes from one of the greatest Sauternes vintages of the 20th century.
These dinners and the sharing of these wines is our passion! A passion we would love to share with you. The wines are handled with meticulous care leading up to and on the eve of the tasting. We strive to present each wine in the very best possible condition for our guests. Join us to share your wine passion and enthusiasm for some of the most revered wines of the 20th century and what will be one of the finest wine dinners held in Napa Valley this year.

1969 Louis Roederer, Cristal
There is no better way to start my first American dinner than with one of the greatest vintages of Cristal ever made! Whats better, this bottle is in perfect condition with fine beading still evident in the wine. “A beautiful clear deep golden. Sweet nose of peach, honey, minerals, walnut, light smoke, mushroom, slight paper. Intense, rich palate of honey coated nuts, chalk, earth, rich pastry, very light carbonation. Amazing!”.
1978 White Burgundy
Leroy is recognized as one of the top producers in all Burgundy and 1978 is considered a top vintage for the white wines of Burgundy. Leroy and Delagrange-Bachelet are both stunning examples of mature white Burgundy from the very fine 1978 vintage.
1959 A magnificent vintage for German Riesling, a very hot summer produced perfectly ripened sun drenched grapes, glorious wines were made with an extraordinarily high sugar content. The wines have aged magnificently with this perfect example coming straight from the museum cellar of Schloss Johannisberg, the Bibliotecha Subterranea!
1945 Richebourg (Mag)
“A great vintage or perfectly ripened grapes. The vintage produced a small crop of high quality grapes with ample concentration. The Richebourg tend to be powerful with excellent concentration, sweet and earthy, ripe and juicy with lots of grip, tannin and acidity all in abundance. Delicious! Exceedingly rare in Magnum format, this bottle has a letter of authenticity from the producer.
1949 Chateau Latour
The last of the trio of perfect vintages that ended one of the most historical decades in world history. An extremely hot vintage produced concentrated, robust wines with high levels of extraction and tannin, the wines are plush and of fabulous style. Broadbent has this to say of 49 Latour “Fairly deep, richly colored; classic nose and flavor; slightly sweet, perfect weight and balance. Fully mature yet time in hand. 5 stars”
1961 Ch Lafite Rothschild
Paulliac at its feminine and perfumed best. 1961 is known as the vintage of the century, extremely powerful, tannic wines, deep in color and almost undrinkable for the first 40 years. 1961 Lafite is sweet, rich and perfectly balanced with the most amazing perfume, seductive and pure it is a perfect wine.
Before shipment the majority of our wines will have their capsules sealed with wax as a safeguard against pressure changes during flight. The original capsule is present underneath the wax on every bottle we serve and will be displayed on the night after the wax coating is carefully removed.
