Dear Arthur’s Cellar Wine Club Member:

At last! You can now purchase three of the Arthur’s Cellar wines by the single bottle via And, they’ll still be shipped free to your local LCBO store as long as your order totals at least $50. You can mix and match any way you want.

Here’s what is currently available (supplies are very limited). We expect that the Domaine Roger Sabon Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Les Olivets’ will also be available by the single bottle or magnum any day now:

Brut 1er Cru – 12.0% Alc./Vol.   LCBO Product # 926617                 $48.35 the bottle

This is great Champagne at a great price. The grape composition is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay (all Premier and Grand Cru). A pale golden colour with a delicate nose of fresh green apples, white flowers and hazelnuts, it has a very fresh, deep structure and is well-balanced with good length. What a great way to start any party and also a wonderful accompaniment for white meats.

Here’s what Alison Napjus said about it in the December 31, 2012 edition of the ‘Wine Spectator’ – “Firm and focused by racy acidity, this is lightly chalky in texture, offering tightly knit flavors of ripe Gala apple, anise, black currant candy, fresh ginger and biscuit. Fine balance. $63 (wow, note the price – US$!!) – 91/100”. Robert Parker rated it a 90!

Please note that only 14 bottles are available at time of writing.

Extra Brut 1er Cru - 12.0% Alc./Vol.   LCBO Product # 926625         $53.50 the bottle

This is really excellent apéritif Champagne in a delicate and refreshing style. Comprised of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, (all 1er Cru and Grand Cru grapes) this crystal-clear Champagne possesses delightfully persistent tiny bubbles. Aromas of white flowers, citrus, pears and honeysuckle carry through in the mouth. It is beautifully fresh and lively with a long finish. This lovely fizz would be a special treat with lobster, oysters or caviar. Decanter magazine gave it a Five Star rating.

Please note that only 6 bottles are available at time of writing.

2015 Sabon Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Réserve’ – 14.5% Alc./Vol.   LCBO Product # 466283 $57.95 the bottle

Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre (with vines averaging sixty-five to eighty years of age), the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Réserve comes from two terroirs: la Crau and la Grenade. It’s aged 60% in foudre and the rest in larger oak tanks. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannic structure, it has lots of scorched earth, darker berry fruits, smoked herbs and licorice aromas and flavors. It’s not a massive wine, but it shines for its purity and length.” (93 – 95/100) Jeb Dunnuck, ‘The Wine Advocate’ October, 2016

I would give this marvellous Châteauneuf a couple of years before broaching and expect it to evolve wonderfully for the next fifteen years or so.

Please note that only 24 bottles are available at time of writing.
