Why do we love this case?

A Bordeaux, a Brunello and a Rioja walked into a bar. They eyed each other off warily, and realised that the only way to settle their differences was to have a drink together. So they did, of each other. And so began United Nations. Or something. 

If Kofi Annan, Ban Ki-moon and António Guterres have anything in common (other than having awesome names and being presidents of the United Nations at one point), they would probably choose these three wines at a blind drunking night if they were ever in town. Bet they didn’t get them at these prices.

Each three pack unites one of each of the following valiant vinos:

The reviews are brilliant and the reviews are bountiful. Let’s start from the top. Antonio Galloni, for Vinous, gives this “big, broad-shouldered St. Julien” 95 points thanks to “notable depth and huge, explosive intensity” and says it’s “without question one of the stars of the vintage.” James Suckling, 94 points, reckons it needs “four to five years to show its true potential” and simply calls it “ a beauty”. Packing not only points, but also dark cherries, plums, spice and a pinch of white pepper, this is a full-bodied Bordeaux that’s a blend of 60% cab sauv, 35% merlot, 3% cab franc and 2% petit verdot. Neal Martin (93pts), from Wine Advocate) reckons “it has one of the most opulent sets of aromatics of the appellation” and is “one of the most decant Saint Julien Wines...well-crafted by Didier Cuvelier.” Perhaps Jancis Robinson sums it up best, as she so often does, by saying it’s just “rather glorious really”. Whoever you believe, everyone agrees this has years left in the bottle, so get cellarin’.

My wife loves Italian reds like this one. There’s that fine-but-meaty rusticity to them, backed up by mouth-coating tannins, fresh tannins and all the sour cherries and red fruits and molasses-covered tobacco leaves you could dream up. And the length. How long? Long enough to make you keep the wine in your mouth, sit back, close your eyes and make a supremely satisfied “mmmmghh” sound, and slow down. I think that’s the wonder of good wine, it actually slows you down and makes you enjoy it. Not always think about it deeply, but at least appreciate it, and maybe the love and care that’s gone into it.

“San Vicente are a family producer and have been making wine since the early 1800s. They’re into their 5th generation now so they know what they’re doing. There are wild raspberries and blackberries, and now it has been opened for a while it’s full of cinnamon and sandalwood and there’s tobacco and dark chocolate – this is just sexy wine. It’s really sexy wine.” – Min, Mofo Wine Broker “This is important: it has 99 points. So overall it has been given 96, 98 and 99 points. It’s a full-bodied wine, so anybody who enjoys grenache and shiraz will do well. Have it with some lamb, with lots of garlic and rosemary and you could even have it after dinner smoking your cigar. Do what you want. Get onto it.”
