Benchmark Wine Group is delighted to release our newest featured cellar: In Pursuit of Perfection. Assembled by a Los Angeles collector over the last 15 years, his goal was to purchase wines having a professional rating of 98 and above, most notably, “Parker Perfects.” Focusing on California and Bordeaux, the majority of the collection was acquired at the cellar door, with occasional purchases from top retailers throughout the US.
The collector was quite successful in his endeavor. We cannot recall a collection in recent memory with so many perfectly scored wines, and a full two-thirds of wines in this parcel garner a score of 98 points or more.
Once acquired, all wines in this collection were sent directly to a professional wine storage facility in Los Angeles, where they stayed until a Benchmark Cellar Team arrived to personally inspect each bottle and carefully pack for transport to Napa.
