Bordeaux Superieur Reserve 2018

Tasting Notes
Chateau de Ribebon's 2018 Reserve opens with the mouthwatering notes of cherries and cassis. The fresh floral tones and earthy tones from both the herbs and spices explain what is to come within the first sip. The palate is coated in the medium-body, velvety tannins that carry the notes discovered first within the nose. It expertly glides into a polished finish that leaves you only wanting more.

Vintage
The 2018 growing season had a challenging start. In its first half, the region was met with incredibly wet conditions, which led to a massive, regional attack of mildew. However, from mid-July through the harvest, the vineyards bathed in hot, sunny weather. This gave winemakers to pick their fruits whenever they felt like the fruits had achieved their expectations. Later picked fruit created more tannic, richer wines, while the earlier fruits created fresher and slightly lighter cuvees. This vintage is full of diverse characters and style yet doesn't stray from the idea of quality one bit.

Terroir
On Bordeaux's Right Bank, overlooking the Dordogne River and the village of Pessac-sur-Dordogne, the clay-limestone soils of the Ribebon hamlet plateau form the basis of Chateau de Ribebon Reserve Bordeaux Superieur. The vines have full southern sun exposure, allowing for the maximum sun to help bring the fruit to full ripeness. The plateau's clay and limestone soils offer nutritional balance and allow the vines to adapt to climatic variation.

Tasting Notes
The old Cabernet Franc vines thrive in this limestone plateau as it is expressed in the wine as a refined elegance and sophistication. The Merlot is completely in its element in the clay soils, showing in the wine as exalted, rich fruit, and a poised counterpoint to the structure and tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon. This tannic structure is, at the same time, rendered more subtle and delicate by the limestone. Oak-aged for18 months, this wine is the quintessential marriage of elegance and balance.

Winemakers
The Alain Aubert family comes from the winemaking tradition of Bordeaux's Right Bank. For several decades now, Alain, his wife Bernadette, and their three daughters have fine-tuned and perfected their craft. To celebrate their achievements, their US importer and close friend, Serge Dori, collaborated to create this special and exclusive set of new labels and wines, all proudly bearing the "Famille Alain Aubert" banner across the top to honor the work of the family.

The 2018 'Reserve' Chateau Ribebon is composed of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. It begins with aromas of cherries and cassis followed by spices, fresh florals, and herbs, which all take shape in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with velvety tannins that frame the core of red fruit flavors as it glides into the polished finish. This is drinking beautifully today but also has the potential to age gracefully for at least a decade.

Premier Online Wine Shop

Top Quality Wines at Flash Sale Prices

Welcome to Wines 'Til Sold Out! Whether you are a returning member or coming across WTSO for the first time, you've come to the right online wine shop for flash wine sales that will change the way you shop for your wine. Browse our shop today to find a wide selection of high-end wines for sale.

Who We Are

Since our beginnings a decade ago, our online wine store's membership base and service area have grown, but our goal has always been the same: to let our members experience the world's best wine at inexpensive prices. To achieve this, our flash wine sales feature only high-end wines selected by our team, all at inexpensive, discounted prices—making us the leading provider of high-quality discount wines online.

Over the years, WTSO has made connections with many of the greatest wine sellers, winemakers, and distributors in the world, allowing us to cultivate an unmatched online product selection and pass on significant savings to our members. We are delighted to be able to provide our members with our favorite wines, from the best French White Bordeaux to sweet American Cabernet Sauvignon to that dry yet easy-drinking Italian Chianti wine.

How It Works

WTSO is proud to do business with hundreds of wineries and distributors online, and we are always looking for new brands to feature on our website. Each bottle that we offer is hand-picked with careful consideration of every aspect of the wine. Once we have chosen a wine that meets the standards that our members have come to expect, we queue it to be featured for sale in our online wine store.

The bottle will then become part of a flash wine sale, wherein we offer that specific bottle for a limited period of time or until it is gone. Due to the high quality and sometimes rare nature of the wines we offer, wine deals online can last as little as one or two hours before selling out.

Regardless of what kind of wine you buy, you can count on free shipping from WTSO with a minimum purchase of any of our wine deals. When you shop from us for discount wines online, we guarantee safe and secure wine distribution and mailing methods. So, that no matter the size of your order, you can rest assured your purchase will arrive fully intact and ready to enjoy.

Commitment to Quality

A large part of what has made WTSO one of the world's most popular online wine stores retailers of wine is our unwavering commitment to the quality of the products that we sell.

Deciding which wines to feature in our shop is no simple task. As part of our company policy, we would never offer any brand or product that we would not happily drink ourselves. That's why we carefully deliberate over each bottle and select only products we truly feel are good enough to be featured for sale on our site.

It is this dedication to quality that keeps our members coming back to our online wine shop — week after week and bottle after bottle. With a strong emphasis on finding some of the most unique and sought-after wines available, WTSO's wine retailers guarantee that you will never be disappointed with the product you receive.

Bonus Offers & Marathons

Bonus Offers

In addition to our current featured offer, WTSO gives members an opportunity to receive extra wine delivery gifts from a hand-selected collection of wines. These inexpensive offers involve a themed group of wines that are grouped together by our team of experts specifically for your enjoyment. They're great for expanding your palate or for when you're gift-shopping.

Since the offer changes approximately once a month, you might find a bonus offer for sparkling wines one month, a group of sweet Italian white wines the next, and wines from a single vintage the month after that. Just like our ongoing current offer, these bonus wines are available to buy at discounted prices.

Marathons

We are always excited to offer WTSO Marathon Days, a fan favorite among members. While we provide our members with the top deals on quality wine every day of the year, we also hold occasional flash sale Marathons, where we typically sell out of over 70 wines in one day.

Each Marathon features various types of high-end wine, from French and Italian favorites to new American varietals of white wine, and includes our company-wide offer of free shipping with minimum purchase.

When it comes to WTSO Marathons, however, it is important to act fast. Each wine variety tends to sell out within 15 minutes or less! To keep an eye out for our next Marathon Day, subscribe to our newsletter.
