Emblematic Chilean wines by a French winemaking superstar
You've rated this wine:
When his main client went bust this brilliant winemaker was left in a pretty sticky situation, thankfully we met him at the right time and with Angel funding rescued his delicious wine!
Originally trained in Bordeaux, he is now an iconic winemaker in Chile, famous for his Domus Aurea Cabernet Sauvignon. Every vintage he has produced has got a 90+ rating and is dripping with medals and critical acclaim.
Those wines sell for an average of $60 a bottle, now we have his very own range, exclusive to us, for just a snip of the price. All thanks to Angel support!

Jean Pascal Lacaze's Story
"My great grandfather started it back in Bordeaux, buying vineyards and working in wine. I have followed. My granfather had his own propriety. Me I prefer to be the winemaker…because I tried to do everything and the only thing I’m good at is making wine!
Growing the grape, making the wine, presenting and selling the wine, then making a sustainable company is what makes me happy. Everything must have a sense. Every year is different, and beauty is showing difference in a different way. Why do I really love winemaking?…, nature is peaceful.
My wines usually show the expression of a place. I am looking for identifying the place and how I can translate it in a bottle. I try to build or make appear the identity of the wine (and so the place) with a different style expressed by the vintage.
The reason I know people like my wines? Because after drinking a glass, they will ask another glass! I think because they get to sample Chile in the glass. Finally, my wines are different, very different.
With my first vintage at Domus Aurea (2003)I felt I had finally had it right. Lots of responsibility yet everything looks like very easy. I enjoyed it a lot! Then I understood that I was seated in a beautiful terroir.
My proudest moments have been getting all the great ratings for Domus Aurea every vintage. (90+ on every review)
My new proud moment? To have a wine with my name on the bottle, all thanks to Angel funding!"

At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:
From classic regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Other less well known regions are capable of producing wines that blind taste tests rate as equivalent or even better than the classic regions.
Estate Wines. Many expensive wines source most of their grapes from independent growers.
In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
