Club Oenologique Issue 5

Issue 5: Spring 2020


Single Issue



Please note: Due to new changes in VAT rules affecting goods shipped from the UK to the EU, as of 1st July we have temporarily suspended shipping to the EU. If you would like to buy any single issue of Club Oenologique, you can do so, for the same price, directly from the site of our retailer partner, Newsstand.

Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Issue 5 is all about families: we meet Vitalie and Clovis Taittinger as they take over from their father in Champagne; we interview the families of Bordeaux – like the Bories of Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste – who fight to keep their properties independent; we meet the Familia Torres of Penedès and the Krige brothers of Kanonkop in Stellenbosch. Elsewhere we take a trip to Islay and zoom around the Mille Miglia with the boss of watchmaker Chopard; we eat with Emily Roux and get deep into the complex business of luxury via Krug, Gucci, Baccarat and their peers. Finally, we bring you our recommendations for Burgundy, Vin de Constance, investable whiskies and more – and we introduce three brilliant new columnists.
