Atlas Fine Wines Tastings

New Releases

We are always actively on the look out for interesting parcels of wine and taste widely to facilitate this –  whether this be of current releases or wines that we have the opportunity to re-taste and re-evaluate. We enjoy strong relationships with a growing number of leading producers from whom we receive annual allocations and are constantly looking to build on this pool of growers. We therefore spend considerable time each year in key regions visiting producers and assessing new possibilities.

In each instance, we aim to keep our offering as diverse and fresh as possible. 

Fontodi, Chianti Classico DOCG 2012

I tasted the 2012 Chianti Classico from Fontodi yesterday at our buyer Vicki Stephens-Clarkson’s insistence and was seriously impressed by the quality on show. I guess, like a number of clients, I have seldom found great quality in straight Chianti Classico... I might as well say it as I see it. Certainly, I have rated the leading wines of...

Finca Villacreces, Ribera del Duero 2004

We have just secured a parcel of a really exciting Ribera del Duero, already with eleven years in bottle at £220 per 6 bottle case in bond. The 2004 Finca Villacreces is not something we are able to offer every day and no one else is offering any stock in the UK market.
To be clear, 2004 was a truly outstanding vintage i...

Antonio Moretti, Orma, Bolgheri 2012

‘Antonio Moretti's Orma seems to keep getting better with each passing vintage’ – I remember reading these words, written by Antonio Galloni before we headed to Vinitaly last year. These comments encouraged me to track down this emerging Super Tuscan for the first time.
This relatively small vineyard – ...

Domaine Giraud, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Tradition ...

We often forget just how vast the region of Châteauneuf-du-Pape actually is. This famous wine region, situated to north of Avignon covers a huge 25 square kilometres. A region of such a size, producing over 100,000 hectolitres of wine per annum, is sure to encompass variation in style as well as quality. Despite the generalisations made ab...

Leeuwenkuil, ‘Heritage’, Syrah 2012

It is great to be reminded that it is still possible to be surprised by a new wine and even, for that matter, a region. This morning we tasted the 2012 vintage of a South African Syrah from an estate called Leeuwenkuil in Swartland , 50 kilometres to the north of Cape Town. This young vintage showed just how much the South African wine scene has...

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Pernand-Vergelesses, E...

Pernand-Vergelesses is one of the three villages to share the Grand Cru vineyards of Corton and Corton-Charlemagne; it is the western slope of the hill of Corton which falls into Pernand.  Of the three villages, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny struggle for a sense of identity and are not names that are easily recognised by clients, ...
