Michel Chapoutier is the master of expressing terroir. From his winery in the Hermitage appellation, he produces the world's greatest and most sought-after Syrah, inspiring many of Australia's most important winemakers such as Classification stalwarts Tim Kirk (Clonakilla), Rick Kinzbrunner (Giaconda) and Ron Laughton (Jasper Hill). Michel has entered into joint ventures with the latter two. His wines are rare, regularly sell out and, due to collector obsession, are relatively rare at auction.
If New Zealand had a Langton's-style Classification, Te Mata Coleraine would be at its head. Cabernet-led; one of the world's finest Bordeaux-style blends.
“New Zealand's most avidly collected red wine.”
“...probably The Great Wine of New Zealand...classic vintage. Stunning wine. Precision.”

The number of packs is strictly limited as we must keep stocks available to satisfy the inevitable follow-up orders for unbroken sixes and dozens. Drink and share these delicious and seductive wines at long summer lunches.

The latest Cape Mentelle review from James Halliday:
“This should be the least ready of the trio of Cape Mentelle '15 siblings but is the most ready. It is absolutely delicious now, with all of its flavour, texture and structure ducks in a row. It's the stealthy softness of the tannins, which are there, and will continue to do what is required of them for decades to come.”

Join us for an evening to celebrate 200 years of history. In the Long Gallery of the Australian Museum, Langton's and Billecart-Salmon will celebrate 200 years of the Maison surrounded by 200 years of Australian history.
Guided by Antoine Roland-Billecart, enjoy a selection of five vintage and non-vintage Billecart-Salmon Champagnes matched with flowing canapés or stop by the oyster bar before taking in the exhibition of important artefacts and curios from the last 200 years of the Gallery.
