An Exclusive Collection of Six Bordeaux Legends in an Elegant Wooden Case

The case

The exclusive collector's edition "Ultime" Premiers Grands Crus Classés Case comprises 6 standard format (75mL) bottles of anything-but-standard wine. Each of these 6 wines comes from one of the Bordeaux wine region's most legendary First Growths and in a vintage that has been highly rated by the world's most influential wine critics. The wines come in an elegant wooden case, engraved with gold lettering. The underside of the lid is engraved with the logo of each producing estate and contains useful information on each wine. Only 100 copies have made of this exclusive limited edition collector's case, making it the ideal gift for the wine lover who has everything (else).

The chateaux

Featured in this stunning new collector's case are Bordeaux's six most legendary chateaux: Chateau Lafite Rothschild (Pauillac First Growth), Chateau Latour (Pauillac First Growth), Chateau Mouton Rothschild (Pauillac First Growth), Chateau Margaux (Margaux First Growth), Chateau Haut Brion (Pessac Leognan First Growth) and Chateau Cheval Blanc (Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé “A” at the time of this vintage).

The wines and their ratings

  • Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 2000 - 98+/100 Wine Advocate - 98/100 Wine Spectator - 18,5/20 Jancis Robinson

    "Since I gave this wine a perfect score, I suppose some could see this as a downgrade. I found everything still there for a perfect rating, but I was just struck by how tight and backward the wine was. A blend of 93.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, the wine still has a dark ruby/purple color and an extraordinarily youthful nose of graphite, black currants, sweet, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and flowers. The wine is rich, medium to full-bodied, but has that ethereal elegance and purity that is always Lafite. I originally predicted that it would first reach maturity in 2011, but I would push that back by 5-7 years now, although it has 50-60 years of life in front of it. Owners of this beauty are probably best advised to forget it for 5 years. Tasted next to a 1996 several days after the 2000 tasting, the 1996, which is a perfect wine, was far closer to full maturity than the 2000." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  • Chateau Latour 2009 - 100/100 Wine Advocate - 100/100 James Suckling - 99/100 Wine Spectator

    "Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby--this needs time!" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  • Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 - 97+/100 Wine Advocate - 17,5/20 Jancis Robinson

    "Perhaps the most beautiful packaging ever on a Bordeaux bottle, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild literally produced a work of art in the gold-engraved bottle of 2000 Mouton Rothschild. Of course, one can't drink the glass, but this is a top-flight Mouton Rothschild, eclipsed only by the 2006 and 2009. A rich, tannic, earthy style, with loads of creme de cassis and floral notes, the final blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot is a full-bodied wine with plenty of coffee, earth, chocolatey notes, and still plenty of tannin to resolve. I gave it an anticipated maturity range of 2015-2050 back in 2003, and that looks on target." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  • Chateau Margaux 2015 - 99/100 Parker Wine Advocate - 100/100 James Suckling - 99/100 Galloni (Vinous) - 99/100 Wine Spectator

    "The 2015 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Medium garnet-purple colored, the nose features oh-so-seductive notes of warm blackberries, cassis and black forest cake with touches of forest floor, sandalwood, anise and cigar boxes plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers taut, muscular, densely packed black fruits and exotic spice flavor layers supported by a very firm backbone of grainy tannins with oodles of freshness and a long, savory finish. It is tightly knit and a little reticent at this very youthful stage; afford it at least 15 years in the cellar, and it will open out into a classic Chateau Margaux of incredible proportions. Readers may be interested to know that this wine is beautifully packaged in a special commemorative bottle honoring winemaker Paul Pontellier, who passed away in 2016. The gold-etched black bottle bears the message, Hommage à Paul Pontellier at the bottom. This 2015 is an achingly beautiful swan song from an incredibly gifted winemaker, taken from us too soon. In my view, this alone makes this vintage more than worth the investment for the many lovers of history in a bottle." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  • Chateau Haut-Brion 2010 - 99/100 Parker Wine Advocate - 99/100 Parker Wine Advocate - 19/20 Jancis Robinson - 99/100 Wine Spectator

    "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Haut-Brion charges out of the gate with exuberant notes of crème de cassis, blueberry pie and baked plums followed by nuances of dark chocolate, licorice and cloves. Full-bodied, the palate has lots of subtle earth and mineral accents with a firm, finely grained texture and great freshness lifting the long finish." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  • Chateau Cheval Blanc 2010 - 100/100 Parker Wine Advocate - 98/100 James Suckling - 100/100 Wine Enthusiast - 19 20 Jancis Robinson

    "Deep garnet in color and made of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot, the nose of the 2010 Cheval Blanc is a bit subdued to begin, measuredly opening out to reveal achingly provocative notions of molten chocolate, preserved Morello cherries, baked blackberries, boysenberries and blueberry compote with wafts of underbrush, cigar box, cumin seed and sandalwood. Full-bodied, the palate is a full-on atomic bomb waiting to go off, with very tightly coiled, slowly maturing black fruits eking out glimpses of a vast array of nuances. Still very youthful, it finishes with an incredibly persistent, jaw-dropping display of earth and mineral fireworks. I'd leave this one for another 5 years and drink it over the next 50." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
