Hart Davis Hart wants you to have a happy holiday, and we couldn’t think of a better combination than offering 10% off a huge list of amazing wine and including free shipping! I love a good wine sale, and I felt it was my duty to explore the list of over 450 in-stock wines we have on offer at 10% off. I thought I would highlight a few favorites and point out some incredible offerings. I must say that it is not easy to choose a concise list, as there is such a looong list of wines I would easily call ‘don’t miss’-so the first thing I would do (after reading this compelling blog entry), is download the full list from our website and start shopping! Our offer ends soon so take advantage while you can.
A few personal highlights from this embarrassment of riches:
1982 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou available in bottle and case quantities. Direct from the Château. What?! Perfect provenance, a legendary vintage and a beautiful wine close to its peak. Happy Holiday indeed.
11 Vintages of Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux IN MAGNUM. Direct from the Château. Are you kidding me? This is the ultimate gift to give the serious white wine lover (even if it’s yourself). These wines age magnificently, drink splendidly and are rare to boot.
2009 Corton-Charlemagne, Bonneau du Martray. For something on the indulgent side, this white Burgundy is powerful, rich and will reward earlier drinking. A spectacular offering from the producer that is the reference point for Corton-Charlemagne.
Bruno Clair anything. Want some Bonnes-Mares? Clos de Bèze? Clos St.-Jacques? 2011 or 2012? The 11’s are elegant and precise while the 12’s are richer and will need a bit of time to reach their full potential. The wines coming from this address are hard to beat….
2011 Hermitage, J. L. Chave. I just drank this a few nights ago (actually I mostly just smelled it. And smelled it. And smelled it.). Gorgeous, intoxicating, classic Hermitage nose. The palate is (understandably) backward right now, but this will reward you handsomely with some cellar time. One of the world’s greatest wines. And it’s on sale.
Need bubbles? We have 2004 Dom Pérignon Rosé, 2003 Krug, Brut, and magnums of 2002 Bollinger, R.D., Extra Brut just to name just a few. I will be buying some Agrapart & FIls Terroirs Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, which is the epitome of Côte de Blancs Champagne.
I hate to let France have all the fun, so don’t overlook Italy (lots of incredible 2010 Barolo), Germany (ex-cellar Joh. Jos. Prüm in abundance!) and California (100pt 2005 SQN 17th Nail In My Cranium anyone?) to name just a few more. So do yourself a favor and take advantage of this great offer while it lasts.
