An indulgent half-dozen as chosen by Tom Laithwaite – packed in a luxury wooden gift box
Here’s a collection that will really dazzle at your next special occasion – all hand-picked by Tom Laithwaite especially for their ‘wow factor’ deliciousness. Like the special 50th anniversary edition of Le Vieux Château Guibeau, from the Bordeaux estate Tom’s dad (Tony Laithwaite) first brought from 50 years ago. Then you’ve an intensely fruited Cabernet Franc from Argentina’s top Trophy-winning winemaking and a juicy Cru Beaujolais. In white, you’ve northern Italy’s answer to white Burgundy in Monti Selezione Chardonnay, a citrus-drenched Gold-medal Loire Sauvignon, and a piercingly fresh Riesling from a tiny estate named “Discovery of the Year”. With this collection in your wine rack, you’re more than ready to impress.
Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
