Atlas Fine Wines Tastings

New Releases

We are always actively on the look out for interesting parcels of wine and taste widely to facilitate this –  whether this be of current releases or wines that we have the opportunity to re-taste and re-evaluate. We enjoy strong relationships with a growing number of leading producers from whom we receive annual allocations and are constantly looking to build on this pool of growers. We therefore spend considerable time each year in key regions visiting producers and assessing new possibilities.

In each instance, we aim to keep our offering as diverse and fresh as possible. 

2016 Pinot Noir, Hannes Storm

We are pleased to say that, not only has our allocation of Hannes Storm’s outstanding Pinot Noir remained intact, but we have actually been able to increase it and add the third single vineyard Pinot Noir in Hannes’ range, the ‘Ridge’. Please see Simon's comments below. 
I have been seriously impre...

2014 Barolo, Vietti

How would you define a tricky vintage? Perhaps a vintage where your vineyards had to endure hail and heavy rain over the summer months?

2017 Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc

There are very few dry white Bordeaux that deliver stunning quality. With the exception of the stable of wines from Château Haut-Brion, there are only a very few names that regularly appear at the upper end of the scoresheet. One that is almost always present is, however, the white from Château Smith Haut Lafitte. I am almost always ...

2017 Château Haut-Bailly

After a remarkably slow start, it appears that the Bordeaux en primeur campaign is finally gaining momentum. Whether or not this is reflected by interest in the market remains to be seen. At Atlas, we have continued to highlight releases that we believe are genuinely compelling by judging the release price against the wine’s quality as wel...

2017 Château Mouton-Rothschild

Keeping it brief…here is the first First Growth out the block. The release price seems well-judged in the context of the market, depending on how you judge the merits of various vintages. The 2017 is unashamedly Cabernet Sauvignon dominant (90% of the blend) making for a refined yet structured style this vintage.  The front-runner am...
