Icons Tasting

When: Wednesday 14th September, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Where: 67 Pall Mall, St. James's, London SW1Y 5ES

Come along and taste some of the world's most illustrious, coveted fine wines at our Icons Tasting! One of the true highlights of annual wine calendar, the Icons represent a veritable El Dorado for fine wine lovers, and chances to taste across this exciting range are few and far between.

The campaign we refer to simply as “Icons” has become known variously as “Beyond Bordeaux”, “La Place Late Releases”, “The Contenders”, “The Outsiders”, and so on, and are a collection of wines offered by Bordeaux-based negotiants in September and early October. Originally these were focused on those high-end Napa estates, but it has broadened out to include sought-after SuperTuscans and some superstar South American wines from Chile and Argentina. As a more general point, the wines tend to be based on Bordeaux varieties – which would make sense given the experience and networks of La Place.

As more wines from different regions are added each year the offering has become more far-reaching, and all the better for it. Last year saw Spain’s first releases - Yjar and Vivaltus, both sold out within hours of being released (and also the first Riojas to ever be featured amongst the ‘Icons’). We also saw Australia (Penfolds Bin 169) as well as the first Brunello (Poggio Antico). This year we are anticipating new wines from as afar afield as Barolo, Bandol, Austria, and Etna to join the ranks. The world of fine wine is expanding to new shores, and our Icons Tasting this year will be easily the most exciting yet!

Just like our Bordeaux En Primeur campaigns, we will be rather more selective than most, only offering those releases we believe are sufficiently thrilling and good value to present to you. The allocation lists for these wines are fiercely contested, so this is your opportunity to taste the new vintages and let us know if you want to take a case of any of your favourites. Spaces are highly limited due to the prestige and scarcity of the wines, so please reserve your place as soon as possible!

Tickets are £75 each and will act as a redeemable deposit on orders over £1500
