Dear Oenophile,

Our price on this rarity is pretty awesome, too, considering its 96-point score! Grab a few for your cellar- the wine is killer!

A chance meeting in the mid-nineties sealed a certain fate for two great winemaking families of modern times – the Laughtons of Heathcote, Victoria, and the Chapoutiers of the Rhone Valley, France. Ron Laughton and Michel Chapoutier, both passionate winemakers with a belief in biodynamic farming and its potential to express pure terroir, found they shared a common vision: to create a pair of wines from far-reaching corners of the globe that would each express their distinct origins, yet remain allied through the philosophy of their creation.

This dynamic partnership also yielded a Shiraz vineyard in Central Victoria’s Heathcote region, the home of Jasper Hill. Planted in the spring of 1998, this tiny vineyard was established on virgin red Cambrian soils and planted with both Australian Shiraz clones, selected by Ron, and French Syrah clones, imported by Michel from cuttings off his famous Hermitage vineyard.

Only a few cases to sell!!

2010 CHAPOUTIER AND LAUGHTON CLUSTER M45 SHIRAZ  $59.95  WA96, WA95, JH95!!

There are two scores for this wine from Wine Advocate - 96 from one reviewer (no note, just the comment above) and 95 from another (below). High praise, both!

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple, Cluster M45’s 2010 Shiraz presents intense blueberry, blackberry and baking spice aromas over notes of mocha, tree bark and black pepper. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed in the mouth, the generous flesh is well-supported by balanced, medium to high acidity and a medium level of velvety tannins, finishing long. It’s tempting to drink now though it should drink best 2014-2024+."

95 James Halliday: "There is a complex array of spicy red and black fruits in a web of fine but persistent tannins, plus French oak on a palate notable more for its length than its weight."

Arrives 2 weeks!! While it lasts....!
