Reward Yourself
Twelve for them, one for me…

lamothe_smallWe all try our best not to buy holiday presents for ourselves. But it is really hard to resist the urge. Particularly when the object of our desire is an amazing magnum of Bordeaux and it is free!

Sherry-Lehmann, the country’s most renowned wine shop, knows how good you’ve been and thinks you should reap the benefits this holiday season. So they are offering a FREE magnum of the 2008 vintage of Château Lamothe, Haut Medoc (a $50 value) with every case of Chateau Lamothe 2009 ordered!

Château Lamothe was founded in 1821 and is situated just north of St. Estephe in the village of Cissac. According to Robert Parker, "The 2009 vintage may turn out to be the finest vintage I have tasted in 32 years of covering Bordeaux."

This delicious wine is dark garnet with a dynamite bouquet of black fruits. The taste is stellar with fully developed fruit, soft tannins and a hint of spice. Drink it now and over the next few years. It is delicious with red meat, game and full flavored cheeses.

So stock up on some great wine for the holiday season. And reward yourself with a magnum!
