With the coronavirus starting to calm down in Hong Kong, it's great that we can start getting together with our family and friends a little bit more often and in slightly larger groups (still, please stay safe and sanitize!). We have been getting more and more inquiries for larger format bottles so we have decided to consolidate our list of magnums and 3L bottles from our stock in case you have any need for these giant beauties. And if you are still wondering why large format bottles cost more than the equivalent of standard bottles, it's because regardless of the volume of the bottle, the surface area for air transfer - the cork - is the same thus allowing the big bottles to age more gracefully as they age at a slower pace than the smaller ones. Just ask anyone who has taste-tested standard vs magnums or larger. It is worth the price! Aside from tasting better, it's just simply more exciting to pull out these huge bottles at dinners or parties - a definite WOW factor!
With our extensive list below, we would like to highlight a few top picks -
Ponsot Clos St-Denis Grand Cru Cuvee Tres Vieilles Vignes 2008 (Mag) - One of the most popular Burgundy producers with vines averaging 50 years of age, their wines are generally hard to source, let alone a magnum! If you don't mind the slightly damaged label, you can get this at a fantastic price of just HK$6,000.
de Montille Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts Cuvee Christiane 1er Cru 2016 (Mag) - A vineyard located very close to La Tache Grand Cru and quality remains consistent year after year. A rare find, only HK$8,600 per magnum.
Benjamin Leroux Chambertin Grand Cru 2014 (Mag) - Well-below market price^, this is the first vintage of Benjamin Leroux to produce Chambertin. Only magnum is produced. A highly collectible wine!
