Julie Carpentier’s past is deeply rooted to the Loire valley. She has shown a remarkable understanding of native varietals together with an overall taste for exceptional and unique products…

209 magnums compose the selection of large formats that Henri Jayer himself made of his greatest wines, year after year… Sleeping treasures that had never left his cellar, this never-to-be-seen collection of magnums is an unmissable opportunity to acquire Domaine Henri Jayer’s wines in this rare format.

 

As all seasoned wine-lovers know, bigger bottles are actually about quality, rather than quantity. Here both can be found: quality and quantity. Indeed, in his personal reserve, Monsieur Jayer had kept numerous magnums in the intention of drinking and sharing them.

 

Amongst the 209 magnums offered in the “Henri Jayer, The Heritage” auction, amateurs will be thrilled to find dozens of different vintages spanning from Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Meurgers 1976 to Vosne-Romanée, Cros Parantoux 2001.

An outstanding exemple of Henri Jayer’s passion for larger formats: 39 magnums of Cros-Parantoux 2000 are offered in this sale, out of the mere 144 magnums that were produced! Browse through the selection below… Enjoy!
