We have for you a superb selection of big bottles which are sure to make a splash with any group or any occasion, whether its a magnum, a double magnum, or one of the even larger bottles mysteriously named for a biblical king. However, buying large formats is not all about making an impression, it is also widely recognized that wine matures more slowly and at a more optimal rate in large bottles. As part of our Autumn Edit, below is a curation of some large formats that are extremely rare and hard to come by, from some of the most coveted producers and regions, perfect for any upcoming celebrations. Plus don’t forget that when stocking up on any of the below wines, you can get £100 off your £1000+ order using the code AUTUMNEDIT100.
Large Formats in Focus
Begin within the historic region of Bordeaux with a terrific array of double magnums from our favourite value for money estates on right bank such as Chateau Laroque, Grand Mayne, and Moulin St Georges, as well as star studded second wines of the left bank with La Dame de Montrose and Moulin de Duhart, and just an extremely rare pair from the highly sought-after Chanel stable with Chateau Rauzan Segla and Berliquet. Moving to Piedmont, we have just a handful of individual OWC magnums remaining from Elio Grasso, one of the most exciting names within the Barolo region. Finally, do not overlook our exquisite magnums hailing from Tuscany, whether your preference is for a top Chianti Classico from Barone Ricasoli and Antinori’s Tenuta Tignanello or an exemplary Brunello di Montalcino from Il Marroneto and Siro Pacenti. Due to their rarity, there is almost always a price premium associated with large formats, which is why our selection today, all still available at their initial release price is so immensely compelling.
