Three tips by Catawiki’s wine experts on what to buy at International Sauvignon Day:

Wine of the Year

“Several well-known wine critics marked Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2022 as a gem composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon,” says Patricia Verschelling, Catawiki's Senior Expert in Wine. “This wine has been tasted ‘en-primeur’, which is direct from the barrel, indicating the wine's potential before bottling. These samples can differ from the finished wine and it remains to be seen how the final product will develop over time.”

Best value

Verschelling suggests Chateau Chasse Spleen is a wine to look out for: “This is a wine to drink for optimal enjoyment. The vineyards of Chasse Spleen are in the commune of Moulis at the centre of the Médoc area. The vineyards are known for their well-draining gravelly soil on a clay-limestone base, which contributes to the wine's quality. The Merlaut family, owners of the chateau since 1976, began standardising excellent vineyard practices, modernising the wine making facilities and carefully selecting oak barrels to mature the wine prior to bottling, ensuring the best quality. Chateau Chasse Spleen is, together with Chateau Poujeaux, by far the best chateau of this area in Bordeaux. The last 9 vintages have all been excellent and thus a great wine to buy and drink.”

Investment opportunities

Mattia Garon, Catawiki's Category Lead for Wine says: “The left-bank region in Bordeaux and Tuscany, specifically Bolgheri, reign as sought-after destinations for Cabernet Sauvignon enthusiasts. Bordeaux's renowned first-growth estates – Chateau Latour, Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion and Margaux – are known for their quality and ageing potential, capturing global attention. Meanwhile, in Tuscany, Tenuta San Guido's Sassicaia and Antinori's Solaia exemplify the best of Super Tuscan wines. For those eyeing New World investments, Napa Valley's Cabernet Sauvignon wines – from such producers as Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, Caymus, Scarecrow, Roberto Mondavi and Promontory – lead the fine wine market due to their rarity and collecting status.”

About Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet Sauvignon is the most-planted red grape variety worldwide and popular among wine lovers. It thrives in relatively warm climates though occasionally encounters challenges in achieving full ripening during cooler years. This grape is revered for its characteristic traits, even in higher yield conditions; such as its rich, dark hue, coupled with black fruit notes; structured tannins; lively acidity and intriguing hints of graphite and leather. Noted for expressing terroir, harmonising beautifully with other varietals, and offering an extraordinary canvas for winemaking and ageing techniques, high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon shines when allowed to mature gracefully in the bottle.
