Saturday Collector Medley

Yeah, I'm calling this a 'medley' mostly because it makes me chuckle to myself when I say it in my mind.

But anyway, tonight's offer is a mixed bag of top-tier wines ranging from the new release 2010 Riserva of Biondi Santi, to a really cool lot of Prum from the mid-2000s, to a list of odd bottles of older stuff that should excite just about anyone who loves old wine.

Ping me back with questions if you have any.

Enjoy your Saturday night!   --matt

Biondi Santi
Franco Biondi-Santi, the patriarch of Montalcino, died in 2013 and this 2010 Riserva marks his final truly great vintage of this hallowed wine.  In fact, the 2010 Riserva, with its near-perfect balance of density and structure, will most likely go down as one of the greatest Biondi Santi Riserva ever produced (which pretty much means it will probably be considered one of the all-time greatest wines from Montalcino when it's all said and done).  All that said, it's a Biondi Santi Riserva and is priced like one, though my price today is market-best.  These are due to be released from the estate shortly and should arrive in the months that follow.

Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 $489 (net)

Joh Jos Prum
Here's a nice chance to acquire some top wines from the legendary JJ Prum estate from the mid-2000s for basically the same price as the new releases would run you today.  As many of you already know, 2004 and 2005 illustrate a wonderful contrast in vintages.  The 2005s were rich and ripe, built for long aging and were very celebrated, much like the current-release 2015s.  The 2004s, on the other hand, were leaner and more elegant, with very racy acids and more transparency from the get-go.  It's a bit more of a 'classic' vintage and one that I really enjoy.  This lot is coming direct from the estate and should arrive just in time for Summer refreshment!
