Because this is a mixed dozen, it has to be added to your cart in multiples of 12 bottles.

This represents a discount of 27.9% AND if you set up a username and password when you are ready to check out, you will automatically receive a further 10% discount if this is your first ever order from our website.
There is one bottle each of all 12 wines. There are nine red wines, one white, one rosé, and one sparkling white wine from Burgundy.
- Château Tour de Yon Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, vintage 2019. NEW TO TOB.
25% Cabernet Franc and the balance is Merlot. Ultimate ripeness and perfume of mulberries and black chocolate, molasses and smoky duck, spicy/smoky tea and earth. The palate is unashamedly full but with a halo of decisive tannins that corset its extravagance. A very high pedigree and strapping red wine from a hallowed patch of earth on Saint-Émilion’s prestigious plateau. Usually $72.95 per bottle.
- Domaine Juliette Avril Châteauneuf-du-Pape red 2020. Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvèdre blend. Massive cherry jam nose, rich, ripe, dark, deep, and very pure fruit, fruit cake, molasses, marzipan notes, rose petals, and leather, while the palate is very full but firms up through the finish with some seriously good gripping tannins, quite chewy at the end, and some nice smoky mineral notes come through later on the nose too, possibly from the 6 months of maturation in wooden vats used for this wine. Classy, classic, and indulgent comfort-wine. Usually $71.95 per bottle.
- Le Mas des Flauzières “Four d’Anuga” from Gigondas in the Southern Rhône Valley, vintage 2021. NEW VINTAGE. 70% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 10% Mourvèdre. Like a high octane red Burgundy this has brooding fruit, the darkest dark side of Pinot Noir, black cherry essence, smoked-tea duck, cinnamon and pepper, intensely serious in style, rich without opulence, perfumed without being exotic, it is besuited and tailor-made in its careful and conservative cut, with fruit and savoury complexity/woody-earthiness in equal proportion. Usually $48.95 per bottle.
- La Cave de Cairanne “Cuvée Antique” 2020 from Cairanne in the southern Rhône Valley. 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah (AKA “Shiraz”). Kaboom! Meaty, smoky fruit, rich, dark, and deep, while the palate is utterly indulgent, rich and very full but ripped with tannin, mouth-coating and long. A thoroughbred wine of massive and controlled power. The flagship wine from the Cave de Cairanne. Usually $43.95 per bottle.
- Maison Bruyère et David “Plaisir” Syrah 2021 from the Northern Rhône. 100% Shiraz. An explosion of black and white pepper along with some Pinot-esque dark berry fruit, but it’s the palate that is really extraordinary with dry and firm medium body delivering swathes of creamy-oaky flavour. Usually $43.95 per bottle.
- Château Divine Bêtise 2019 from Montagne Saint-Émilion. NEW to TOB.
20% Cabernet Franc and the balance is Merlot. Montagne Saint-Émilion is a village equidistant from Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, up on the plateau. Stunning red from a classic vintage of flair and upfront beauty. Oodles of dark fruit, blackberry jam, violets, cigar box, cedar, cranberry, licorice and earthy notes, while the palate is firmly built but not muscular, more tightly elegant, gripping and long, precise and determined. At the full end of medium-bodied. Very stylish and with good future prospects. Usually $39.95 per bottle.
- Domaine du Père Benoit Beaujolais WHITE 2021. 100% Chardonnay. Gorgeous stone fruit, orange blossom and jasmine, cocoa and butter, baking bread, cinnamon and delicate wood notes, while the palate is dry and focused with excellent acidity through its spine, long and tingly. Should develop some delicious toasty/honeyed complexity with a year or two in bottle. Good structure and prospects. Usually $38.95 per bottle.
- Moingeon “Crémant de Bourgogne” Brut Vintage 2020, sparkling white wine from Burgundy. 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Aligoté. Made using the traditional “Champagne method”. The Chardonnay here takes centre stage with peach and honeydew melon fruit, lemon sorbet, toasty meringue and brioche notes, while the palate is very lively, incisively crisp and dry, and perfectly thirst-quenching. Usually $36.95 per bottle.
- Domaine du Père Benoit Beaujolais red 2021. 100% Gamay from 85-year-old vines. Surging and vivacious fruit perfume, black cherry and raspberry compote, cinnamon and wood notes, while the palate has devastating drinkability, fresh and suave, elegant and balanced. Usually $33.95 per bottle.
- Baudry & Dutour “Marie-Justine” rosé 2022 from the Chinon district of the Loire Valley. NEW vintage. 100% Cabernet Franc. Talcum powder, cinnamon, red currants, cranberry, cassis, blackberry leaf and more subtle nuances on the nose, then a beautifully tangy palate, dry but soft, food-friendly and highly drinkable. Benchmark Chinon rosé. Averages a score of 4.0 out of 5 across all vintages, from 506 individual reviews on wine review app Vivino. Usually $31.95 per bottle.
- Domaine Juliette Avril Côtes-du-Rhône red 2020. Grenache / Shiraz/ Carignan/Cinsault blend. Rich fruit, chocolate, cherry liqueur, stoney/earthy notes, and a palate that has grip as well as statuesque and fleshy body. Exceptional value and a genuinely opulent quaffer. Usually $26.95 per bottle.
- Domaine Sainte Léocadie “Leukadios” rouge 2021 from Minervois in the Mediterranean hinterland between Carcassonne and Narbonne. NEW TO TOB. 40% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, and 15% each of both Carignan and Mourvèdre. The dark berry fruit and spice is polished, finely detailed, and with some mineral and earthy notes that open up nicely with a little swirl, while the palate is a seriously classy affair with fine and light tannins, medium-full body, but poised and devastatingly drinkable. A cracking any-night-of-the-week red with authentic and flavoursome individuality. Usually $22.95 per bottle.
How to order.
This works out at $513.40 of wine for today’s special price of $369.96 , which is a discount of 27.94%. Please note that today’s special price only applies to these wines when they are ordered as this suggested mixed dozen.
Because this is a mixed dozen, it has to be added to your cart in multiples of 12. So to order one of these mixed dozens, put 12 bottles in your cart, or to order two of these mixed dozens, put 24 bottles in your cart, etc. This mixed dozen has been priced at $30.83 per bottle because $30.83 x 12 = $369.96, which is the correct price to pay for it.
Please also note that if the stock counter towards the top of this page is showing “792 in stock”, for example, that means that there are 66 mixed dozens available because 792 divided by 12=66. Or if it showed there were “12 in stock” that doesn’t mean that there are 12 of these suggested mixed dozens available but actually just one of them because 12 divided by 12=1, etc. In other words, the stock count figure shows the total number of bottles not the number of dozens available.
