Stellar Summer Bottles
June–August 2019 Fine Wine List
As seasons change, so too do the
world's top wines, gathering over
time that magical combination of
complexity, refinement and,
ultimately, readiness. Many of the
treasures in this summer list have
spent several seasons in our
warehouses doing just that.
Others were selected specifically
with the seasonings of summer
food in mind, such as Emma from
our Tastings Team's personal picks and a style-straddling
selection of top rosés.
And, whether it's a keenly priced
'Small Wonder' from off the
beaten track or a pitch-perfect
Puligny-Montrachet, every wine
in these pages goes some way to
show the benefits of our
Society's 145 years of developing
and diversifying. It's a rather
special ageing process, and we
warmly invite you, our members,
to reap the rewards.
