There’s a good reason why Benjamin Leroux refers to the standard format as “half bottles”. Across the spectrum of presentation, service and drinking, the magnum’s supremacy is absolute. With the festive season now just days away, we don’t need to remind our clients that magnums are also the ultimate vessel for cellaring, gifting and celebratory dining. Starting at $40, the listing—also known affectionally in house as ‘Sophie’s Reserve’—contains a broad range of outstanding wines for the season or, for further down the track. As always, full notes on each wine are available. \nYou can find the full listing here.
