Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac 2008
18L Melchior (one available)
The 2008 Pontet-Canet has been described as a 'candidate for the wine of the vintage' by the recently retired Robert Parker. Now you can access one of the vintage's best and Paulliac's most popular Grand Crus in an extra, extra large format.
If you're after something a little less ostentatious than a Melchior, you can access our Pontet-Canet portfolio, including 2003, 2015 and the legendary 2009 vintage – last 2 bottles! Pontet-Canet will also be on show at our En Primeur Tasting Events.
1er Grand Cru Classé (B)
A stone's throw from the pretty town of Saint-Émilion, Château Bélair-Monange sits at the highest point of the region's famed limestone plateau. Scratch the surface here and you'll find the much sought-after dense blue clay which gives the wine the intensity, length and elegance we expect from the best of Saint-Émilion.
Langton's has Australia's most comprehensive Bordeaux collection. If Claret is your tipple, explore our entire portfolio from 1988 to present.
Margaret River 2014
TThe Devil's Lair Cabernet Sauvignon over-delivers on Margaret River quality for the price. This offer on the 2014, with a few years of age, is beginning to show its cellaring potential. Complex and layered, with the textbook lively aromas of Margaret River, and subtle oak characteristics. It shows a primary blackberry fruit nose with a deep core of dark cassis, ironstone minerality and abundant yet supple tannins.
Teusner Premium Reds
Barossa Valley 6-pack
Since 2001, Teusner has been making wines with fruit from some of the finest and oldest vines in the Barossa. Critics haven't held back in their reviews (with scores sitting almost exclusively in the mid-to-high 90s) and the wines are near guaranteed sell-outs whenever they land.
In this mixed six-pack, you’ll find two bottles each of the Albert Shiraz 2016 and the Big Jim Shiraz 2015, plus one each of the Teusner & Page Cabernet 2012 and the Righteous ‘FG’ Shiraz 2012.
A.T. Richardson Wines
We really are spoilt for choice with Australian Riesling. Here's another stunning example of how to wring every cent of value from your $20.
The 2018 A.T. Richardson Riesling is rich, complex, aromatic, flavoursome and generous with the lightest touch of well-integrated residual, showing a little winemaking swagger.
Experience Bordeaux like never before
Langton's En Primeur Tasting Events - An Australian first!
Sydney 28 May - Melbourne 30 May
We are proud to be hosting two roving tasting events to showcase the latest wines from Bordeaux 2018, described by Andrew Caillard MW as an ‘immortal vintage!’ These wines are still in barrel in the cellars of châteaux in Bordeaux and have yet to be bottled.
An Australian first, Langton's is giving you the opportunity to taste the latest wines En Primeur at events in Sydney and Melbourne. For lovers and collectors of wine, this unique event series is not to be missed.
