Rare Wine Offer – Domaine de la Grange des Peres 2006

From time to time we are sent offers on some of the rarest and hardest to get wines in the industry because with your help we have become a select account for most distributors. This is one of them. We offered the Grange des Peres 2 years ago but have not had an opportunity to offer it since. This is a cult wine, those who follow it will snatch up all that they can every time it is available. It is only ever available in very small quantities.

The wine is a cellar wine and most folks like to give it 10-20 years from vintage before opening. If 2006 was a special year for you and you need a wine that can wait 20-30 years before opening (Chad Zakaib???) then this is distinctly one for the cellar.

I have only tried the wine once myself, it was a vintage from the mid 90’s and I opened it too young. Even so, it was an unbelievable wine experience, Parker says it best below, “borrowing elements from Medoc and Hermitage”

But this is a collectors wine and I am not going to try to sell it to you.

I do not know how much we can get and I will submit offers as I receive them. We have a Thursday deadline to get orders in and then I will know what we have obtained after that time.

Robert Parker on Grange des Peres 2006:

This millerandage-afflicted vintage has produced such a small crop in red as well as white, that Vaille said he would have practical difficulties figuring out how best to allocate it to his customers. This smells and tastes like a blend of pit and bush fruit distillates with some resinous, herbal elixir. The sheer density on exhibit here – including a huge web of finely-spun tannins – makes for a certain severity. “It’s not very baroque,” is Vaille’s wry comment, and I would concur. This is going to need at least 5-6 years in the cellar to even begin to reveal its full potential, and I can imagine a long bottle evolution borrowing elements from the Medoc, Hermitage, and Chateauneuf (much as Vaille’s choice of grapes anticipates). Yet even if its potential is far from realization, this wine’s layered complexity and visceral intensity are already undeniable. Cassis, cherry pits, dark chocolate, honey, walnut oil, iodine, roasted meats, resinous and bitter-sweet herbs, and wet stone are among the flavor elements that implacably stain the palate. 94-95 points
