We are delighted to present a curated selection of extraordinary wines from Bordeaux’s most esteemed châteaux. We acquired these ultra-rare gems from two of our long-standing customers, storing them under ideal conditions.

Among the offerings, you will find legendary names that have achieved the elusive 100-point rating, such as the 1989 La Mission Haut Brion, 1982 Pichon Lalande, and the 1990 Le Pin. These wines are the epitome of excellence, representing the pinnacle of Bordeaux winemaking.

Each bottle in this collection has garnered outstanding scores (between 96 and 99 points) from critics who have been awe-struck by their profound qualities as you can see below:

  • The 1970 Chateau Petrus, is an outstanding example”Neal Martin.
  • The 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild is supple and seamless, with an effortlessly elegant, harmonious profile”William Kelley.
  • The 1982 Chateau Mission Haut Brion is “one of the great wines of the vintage”William Kelley.
  • Only 435 cases of Le Pin 1998 (which got “pillow-plumped tannins” – Jane Anson) were produced so it is not to be missed!
  • Finally, for Neal Martin, the 1998 Petrus “Flirts with perfection”.

All these wines were bought by us at Vinum and have been stored in lovely condition. These are sharply priced against the market, please don’t hesitate to let us know if any of these exceptional wines pique your interest.

1970 Chateau Petrus
2 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 5,800/ bottle (inc GST $6,264)
“The 1970 Petrus here is far superior to the one poured in London a few months earlier. The bouquet is crystalline with a mixture of red and black fruit, hints of thyme, ferrous notes percolating through with time. So much poise and that is translated through to the palate framed by filigree tannins, a perfect line of acidity and black truffle notes towards the elegant finish. This is an outstanding example but be warned that there is bottle variation. Tasted at Epure restaurant in Hong Kong.”
96 Points Neal Martin

1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild
6 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 5000/ bottle (inc GST $5,400)
“The 1982 Lafite Rothschild is at the peak of its powers today, and the two bottles I drank this year were both exceptional. Wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet red berries and blackcurrants mingled with notions of cedar chest, cigar box, camphor and dried flowers, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, with an effortlessly elegant, harmonious profile and a long, fragrant finish. While this is far from being the most powerful Médoc of the vintage, it is among the most pleasurable.”
98 Points William Kelley

1982 Chateau Pichon Lalande
4 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 1,550/ bottle (inc GST $1,674)
“Several years ago, I purchased a case of the 1982 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande from a frigid Alsatian cellar where it had lain undisturbed since release, and from these bottles, it continues to very much merit a three-digit score. One of the most flamboyant, sensual wines of the vintage, it offers up a sweet bouquet of blackcurrants and blackberries mingled with notions of orange rind, violets, licorice and pipe tobacco. Full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with melting tannins, ripe acids and a long, cedar-inflected finish, it continues to deliver magical drinking. Having drunk the 1982 six or seven times this year, however, I am forced to concede that bottles that show this level of vibrancy and flare aren’t so easy to find, so now is a great time to start pulling corks in earnest. This may not prove to be the very longest-lived wine of the vintage, but its star certainly did burn bright!”
100 Points William Kelley

1982 Chateau Mission Haut Brion
6 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 1,800/ bottle (inc GST $1,944)
“One of the great wines of the vintage, and the last produced under the ownership of the Woltner family, the 1982 La Mission Haut-Brion remains remarkably youthful, exhibiting a saturated ruby-black hue. Unfurling in the glass with rich aromas of black fruits, cigar smoke, loamy soil, black truffle, peat and pencil shavings, it’s full-bodied, broad and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, expansive finish. Over the last decade, the wine has become increasingly seamless and elegant, without losing any of its vitality, and it is now clear, if it were ever in doubt, that this wine can stand alongside vintages such as 1961 and 1955 as one of the great La Mission Haut-Brions of the 20th century. Readers should note that the La Tour Haut-Brion of the same vintage performs at a very similar level of quality.”
100 Points William Kelley

1989 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion
2 cases (x12) @ SGD$ 34,800/ case (inc GST $37,584)
“The 1989 La Mission Haut-Brion is hands-down the greatest of this era, and if one takes consistency into account, it is slipping past the 1989 Haut-Brion. Deep in color with only faint bricking on the rim, it has a breathtaking bouquet of intense blackberry, black truffle, black olive and incense. It is the precision that elevates this above almost everything else. The palate is full-bodied yet paradoxically weightless, offering multidimensional flavors of blackberry, raspberry, white pepper and clove. Then there is the underlying mineralité that chisels this into such a formidable Pessac-Léognan, fanning out beautifully on the elegant finish. This might well be Jean-Bernard Delmas’s greatest achievement. Tasted at the La Mission Haut Brion dinner at Amuse Bouche in Hong Kong. (Drink between 2021-2050)”

1990 Le Pin
2 bottle (x75cl) @ SGD$ 6,900/ bottle (inc GST $7,452)
“Even more opulent and sensuous since I last tasted it, the wine is clearly flashy, flamboyant, and showy with its textures and profile of mocha, orange peel, slice box, cocoa, black cherry and plum. The finish holds on for over 60 seconds which is a good thing, as you want as much of this supple, sexy wine as possible.”
100 Points Jeff Leve

1998 Le Pin
2 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 6,700/ bottle (inc GST $7,236)
“Richest of the lineup in terms of decadent black cherry and damson plum that seduce straight from the first hit and expand upwards and outwards through the palate. Structured and precise and yet full of abandon, with crème de cassis, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and smoked caramel edging. Pillow-plumped tannins are what always come to mind when I taste Le Pin, and here they are again, so soft and caressing that they are impossible to resist. 435 cases produced, a near perfect embodiment of the singular character of this property, clearly showcasing why it is so treasured. 100% new oak. (Drink between 2020-2035)”
99 Points Jane Anson

1999 Le Pin
2 bottles (x75cl) @ SGD$ 4,250/ bottle (inc GST $4,590)
“Expressive and rich, not as decadent as the 1998 but still in a class of its own in terms of concentration of menthol-laced plum and smoked blueberry fruits. It’s the extra filling that always makes Le Pin stand out, the multi-layered tannins that, instead of air in between them, have silk and feathers. Touches of cinnamon, mocha and bitter black chocolate give a roundness and further depth to the overall shot of pleasure. This is delicious. (Drink between 2021-2032)”
97 Points Jane Anson

1998 Chateau Petrus
4 cases (x6) @ SGD$ 39,000/ case (inc GST $42,120)
“The 1998 Petrus never fails to deliver. This is a fabulous example that confirms it is a true tour de force. It has a compelling bouquet with mineral-rich black and red fruit with unerring purity. In this bottle, I notice a hint of hickory not observed previously. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins, perfect acidity and a sense of tension that counterbalances the sheer power and ambition of this, the best Bordeaux of the vintage bar none. I was not quite moved to give this a perfect three-figure score, but it flirts with perfection. Tasted at the Petrus dinner at Hide restaurant in London and at Epure restaurant in Hong Kong. (Drink between 2020-2060)”
