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 temperature-controlled 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.
