SHare the rare

A SUPER-FANCY BOTTLE, BY THE GLASS

Ever wondered what’s in a $600 bottle of wine? At Comptoir’s new “Share The Rare” sessions, there’s now an unique opportunity to find out. Unlocking the wine vault of Comptoir’s co-owners David Lawler and Tim Sacklin - which has been some combined 40 years in the collecting - Comptoir will open up a super-fancy bottle of one of the “bucket list” wines of the world, and offer it by the glass. They’re talking one-off bottles of hard-to-find Grand Cru Burgundy, special sites in Barolo, Chateau Yquem, rare-as-hen’s-teeth Coche, only-by-allocation Burgundy, gracefully ageing Bordeaux... the kinds of stuff that wine nerds - like David and Tim - lose sleep over.
