The Collector

There is nothing quite so beautiful as a perfectly aged wine and nothing quite so satisfying as a bottle you’ve aged yourself.  It is a mixture of patience and prognostication, of being clever and being right.  One selects a bottle, young and untested, then hides it away in a dark, forgotten place.  Years become decades and, finally, the perfect moment presents itself, either through circumstance or gut instinct.  The bottle is retrieved, opened, and the bet you made with yourself years before is finally settled.  There is no other consumer product which rewards such foresight with such grace. 

If you haven’t gotten the idea, I spend a lot of time thinking about wine and, more specifically, what happens to it as it gets older.  My name is JT Robertson.  I am the General Manager of Le Dû’s Wines and I specialize in wines which deserve deep thought.  Besides keeping the lights on, my main job is to inform and offer my private clients about the best and brightest in the world of high-level wine.

But what do we mean when we say “high-level”?  The easiest answer would be to reference wines everyone knows.  Chateau Latour?  Sure.  Romanee-Conti?  Absolutely.  Tignanello?  Marcassin?  Rayas?  You got it.  These are considered the great wines of the world for a reason and I am honored and, frankly, very lucky to get to play around them on a regular basis but it’s not what gets me out of bed in the morning.  I’m interested in the Legends of Tomorrow.  It’s the easiest thing in the world to tell you all about the legends of the past.  That’s just sourcing, connections, and prices, all of which we have, but it doesn’t take much judgement or creativity and, quite frankly, it’s just not much fun. 

Rather, I want to be there for you as your build your cellar, or as you expand your palate, or as you continue your exploration deep into the weeds of the world of wine.  Many of my clients are collectors.  Some of them just like drinking really good stuff.  Either way, I’m happy to help. 

With all that in mind, I’ve put together my “Cellar Ready 6 Pack”.  These are all wines which will age beautifully over the next 20 years and offer, for their quality, a tremendous value, especially when you consider they represent a $625.00 value and we’re selling it for $500!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to be added to my private offer list or if you have anything specific for which you’re searching or if you just want to talk/have questions about wine.  Can’t wait to meet you.

With High Regards,

JT Robertson
