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 Palais Cardinal “La Réserve” Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2020. NEW VINTAGE.
22% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance is Merlot. Very dark in the glass with still some youthful purple to the rim. Billowing aromatics, floral and vigorously punchy ripe fruit bursts out riding on a complex cloud of oak notes and dark and savoury tarriness. Scored 92/100 by über-critic James Suckling. Usually $45.95 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.
- Domaine du Père Benoit Côte de Brouilly 2021. 100% Gamay from 90-year-old vines. The fruit is precise, perfumed, lifted, and complex, with mulberries, blackberry, cassis and spice, cherry jam, earthy woodiness and leather, while the palate firmly medium bodied with impressive tannins, textured, structural, and long in the mouth. Usually $40.95 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.
- 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.
- Château Picon “Vin du Roy” Bordeaux Supérieur, vintage 2018. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance is Merlot. 100% new oak. The top wine from Château Picon smashes it out of the park with epic fruit intensity, blackberries, cassis, and blueberries, toasty oak, cigar box, cedar wood, earth and smoky charcuterie, but delivers all this high octane aromatic power with the kind of tailored precision that is associated with a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The palate is deadly in its drinkability, full and rambunctious, but seamlessly joined together, palate-coating and very long in the mouth, again thanks to the added tannin power of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Best served from a decanter, with rich food, as this is a monster wine. Usually $36.95.
- 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.
- Château Saint-Elme 2019, Bordeaux Supérieur. NEW vintage. 5% Cabernet Franc and 95% Merlot.
Meaty fruit, blackberry jam, prosciutto, some classic Claret notes (cigar box and cassis), while the palate is fresh, smooth, medium-full-bodied, and very easy to drink. From a minuscule 3.5 hectare estate five minutes south of Saint-Émilion. Gold medal from Gilbert and Gaillard, one of France’s leading wine review publications. Scorching value-for-money. Usually $27.95 per bottle.
- Château Petit Mouta from the Graves district of Bordeaux, vintage 2021. 90% Sémillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. White wine. What Chablis does for Chardonnay, the Graves district of Bordeaux does for Sémillon/Sauvignon blends, and 2021 was a year that brought this quality into laser-pointed focus. The fruit is ultra-fresh with kiwi, gooseberry, lemon and lime fruit, lemon sorbet, capsicum and ginger notions, while the palate is dry, clean, light as a feather, and highly refreshing. A cracking little wine from the village where I lived when completing a winemaking apprenticeship between 1998 and 2001. Usually $26.95 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 $415.40 of wine for today’s special price of $311.52 , which is a discount of 25%. 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 $25.96 per bottle because $25.96 x 12 = $311.52, 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.
