Storing away bottles for later is not common practice for every wine lover. We generally live in the here and now, opting for immediate gratification over delayed. However, in some cases, popping open a special bottle of well-aged wine can be much more transcendent than enjoying it young.

Every year, Wine Enthusiast releases their list of Top 100 Cellar Selections — a ranking of the best wines with exceptional ageing potential. We are thrilled to announce that this year’s list includes Terre Rouge 2016 Ascent Syrah (Sierra Foothills) with a perfect score of 100 Points at #2, Bodegas Muga 2011 Prado Enea Gran Reserva (Rioja) with a score of 96 Points at #8, and Domaine Fouassier 2018 Les Romains (Sancerre) with a score of 95 Points at #40. These outstanding vintages will soon be available at the LCBO.
