Opus One, one of the Napa Valley’s most historic and leading estates, released the new 2019 vintage to collectors across the globe via the La Place de Bordeaux distribution system.
“a truly magnificent Opus One in the making!”, Lisa Perotti-Brown
“...a pleasure to taste, and this is one of my favourite Opus One's for years”, Jane Anson
Priced in line with the 2018 vintage and below the likes of other great years such as 2016, 2015, 2013 & 2010, the 2019 iteration offers collectors the opportunity to purchase one of the New World’s most iconic wines at a price that works.
Established in 1979 as a joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild (of Bordeaux First Growth Ch. Mouton Rothschild) and Robert Mondavi in the early ’70s, their goal was to craft a wine that combined the intensity and fruit purity of Napa, with the elegance of top Bordeaux. The first vintage (1979) was released in 1984, and soon Opus One earned a reputation for remarkable elegance alongside its peers.
With little Opus being made in 2020 due to the wildfires, a shortage of supply is likely to increase demand of the physically available vintages, so if you are a lover of Napa Cabernet, now is the time to stock up.
