This parcel of wine and spirits was brought to us by a long-time aficionado, who began collecting wine in 1981. His interest in collecting began during his career, where every successful business closure was celebrated with fine wine. His wines and spirits were purchased through the SAQ, LCBO, and US independent retailers, and were stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled home cellar before coming to auction.
The wine in this lot has a score of 91 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -I loved Fortia’s 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron. Made from 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, aged all in concrete tank, it’s loaded with Provencal character and exhibits lots of sweet black cherries, currants, licorice and hints of olive and mint on the nose. Medium-bodied, elegant and supple, with outstanding balance and length, it’s drinking at point now, yet should hold nicely for another 3-5 years.
