Just before Christmas we launched FINE+RARE Showcase, a pioneering series of luxury mixed cases of wine, three months on we are delighted to present Showcase #2.
Showcase #2 is a celebration of the 2007 vintage. It contains six bottles of premium '07 reds from across the Old World, all of which are maturing beautifully and delicious to drink right now, while capable of improving further should you wish to cellar. From world-class Claret to an unparalleled Vintage Port, these stunning wines give a luxurious twist to the mixed case trend. Each showcase arrives beautifully presented in a stylish, premium case, making it the ultimate treat for the discerning wine drinker.
2007 was rated as "extraordinary" by Wine Advocate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and for Vintage Port, so these are obvious highlights. The other four were all over-achievers: l’Eglise Clinet was Robert Parker’s joint top-rated Bordeaux of the vintage and Black Knight was the joint second highest-rated Minervois. 2007 was also the first ever release of Scavino’s Barolo Monvigliero and it was described as “a marvellous debut vintage
Showcase #1 has already been very well-received by our clients, and judging by the calibre of these wines, we believe #2 will be just as popular. We have just over fifty of these cases available, and with no other UK merchant offering a mixed case of this quality or breadth, this really is an excellent opportunity for the fine wine aficionado.
