Week in Review 22-09-18
Saturday, September 22, 2018 in Review
That's a wrap!
It's taken four years to get to this point. We've published Classification VII (in hardback), produced a short film and hosted Classification tasting events across six cites showcasing 136 wines from 91 producers. It has been an enormous undertaking from everyone at Langton's but we'd like to call out our indefatigable events team and thank all Langton's members who attended these incredible events.
See the full Wines of the Week here.
The Ultimate Single Vendor Auction
12 bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 1999
One of the most impressive lots in this auction is this 12-bottle DRC 1999 collection containing 3 x La Tache, 2 x Richebourg, 1 x Romanée-Conti, 2 x Romanée-St-Vivant, 2 x Échezeaux, 2 x Grands Échezeaux. This Burgundy auction is one of six special auction in our Ultimate Single Vendor series, all from the cellar of one collector.
Rare Noon Multi-Vintage Portfolio
Noon Winery can boast two Langton's Classified wines, but it's extremely rare for any of Drew Noon's wines to appear on the retail market. They go almost exclusively to loyal private customers and sell immediately if they turn up at auction. Langton's has acquired a significant and varied parcel of Noon reds, including back vintages, and we're proud to offer them to you today.
To Giorgio Gjergja, Glen Hayley and the team at Kooyong Wines, welcome to Langton's Classification VII.
Currently available from Langton’s are the 2015 and 2016 vintages of the newly-classified Kooyong Haven Pinot Noir. The 2015 has 95 points from Huon Hooke and 94 from Ned Goodwin MW. The 2016 has 97 from Hooke and 95 from Goodwin.
Premium Regional Shiraz 6-Pack
Australians love Shiraz. It's our most widely-planted grape variety and it thrives in almost every Australian wine region. To celebrate, we’ve selected six flagship-level Shiraz wines, three of them Langton's Classified, one from each of six major wine regions. All wines have been assessed by major critics at 95 points or better, meaning that every Shiraz in this offer is Gold Medal standard. It's a remarkable offer, looked at from either or both the quality or value viewpoint.
After our Classification VII event series, the Langton’s experience continues with new and exciting events we’ll be announcing soon. From Bordeaux to the Barossa, discover and taste the great wines from around the world in the Langton’s portfolio. To be the first to find out, register here.
