Did you know that Top Ten has a section devoted solely to rare, mature, and exceptional wines? This is what it looks like:
Many of these wines have been pulled from Paul's Reserve Cellar as an example of what he has. Most of these wines will be hard to find anywhere else, and the ones that are not as rare, or mature fall into the exceptional category.
Let's look at these three:
What makes a wine mature? Time. Well, time well spent by wines that deserve some time to mature. Being well kept, in climate controlled conditions, and being the right wine to age are key factors for getting an excellent mature wine. This 2009 The Foundling Cabernet Sauvignon in a good example of a mature, well kept wine.
What makes a wine hard to get? Supply, demand, and allocation for certain regions. This Kosta Brown 2015 Pinot Noir is hard to get your hands on, especially in Columbia.
This last wine is one that falls into the category of exceptional. The winemaker, Julien Fayard, is renowned for his work at Château Lafite-Rothschild. This is his California work, and it is truly exceptional.
So the next time you are looking for something special, we have the place for you to look!
