Arthur Sellers Bulletin Archive
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 LCBO.com. 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
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
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
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.
Many thanks and cheers!
Jim, Hélène and Kate
