Exclusive Chateau Naude Le Vin de François 2010 & 2011 Vintages - 45000

Tuesday, 23 November, 2021

I have a unique private collection of auction wines that have been appropriately cellared and aged in Liebherr and Samsung wine fridges for the past decade. These wines were bought at an exclusive invitation only one-off auction hosted by acclaimed wine maker Francois Naude.

I have the following vintages: (see the attached tasting notes)
- 18 X 750ml Le Vin de François 2010 (Lot price = R27,000) - Platter 4*
- 12 X 750ml Le Vin de François 2011 (Lot price = R18,000) - Platter 5*

Francois Naude was for many years the top Pinotage wine maker at L'Avenir estate and now consults to the top wine estates on the production of the best quality Pinotage.

Chateau Naude Le Vin de François is a top-end pinotage blended from the best batches sourced from the leading Pinotage producers in South Africa. Incorporating wine from Beyerskloof, Delheim, Kanonkop, Lanzerac, L’Avenir, Rhebokskloof, Rijk’s, Simonsig and Wildekrans, this blend is only sold at one-off annual black tie function auctions in South Africa.

Each vintage expresses different nuances of vanilla, spice, concentrated fruit of black and red cherries, and plums. Typically with fresh acidity, well-balanced with firm but fine tannins, and a long dry finish. Each incredibly luxurious wine bottle is individually wrapped in a full colour printout story about the wine and tasting notes complimentary to the exclusivity of the vintage.
