This ultra-premium blend is named after the legendary writings of Roman philosopher, Pliny the Elder in Book XVII, chapter 35. This inspired us to return to the original virtues of making wine by hand with Book XVII. Incredible precision, attention to detail as well as profound sophistication during each phase, is required to perfect each and every one of the basic elements to in turn perfect this wine’s magnificent style.
After being aged in new fill French Oak for a period of 18 months, a maximum of 1200 bottles, of which pre-reservations have already secured a substantial amount, will officially be released end of April 2017. The expressive 2015 vintage of Book XVII, is an extraordinary result of the optimal growing and ripening conditions of the reputable 2015 harvest. This makes the 2015 vintage even more of a collector’s item than it already is. This is just one of the reasons why each bottle, in its striking, handcrafted wooden case, with its unique number, is accompanied by an iconic Allen key, for safekeeping, as this wine also has an ageing potential of over four decades.
The annual client pre-bookings and reservations of the unique numbers are available directly from the cellar, online, with complimentary delivery upon purchase.
All orders are limited to 4 bottles per family per vintage of the Book XVII.
