Cap Classique Colmant Absolu Zero NV

Absolu Zero Dosage NV is 100% Chardonnay with the fruit coming from Franschhoek (65%) and Robertson (35%). A portion of the base wine (15%) is fermented in French oak barrels while a further 15% of reserve wine from previous vintages is also blended in. These techniques contribute to the complexity and elegance of the finished product – as does the extended time on lees, 85 months minimum – or seven years in layman’s terms! Colmant Absolu NV is the pinnacle of the range: a Blanc de Blanc with zero dosage and extended lees maturation of 85 months. A poised balance of maturity, complexity and fresh vivacity.

Champagne Lanson “Gold Label” Brut Vintage Magnum 2005

R1,750.00 inc. VAT
"Yellow-golden in color, the 2005 Gold Label Vintage Brut has a deep, ripe and vinous nose. Rich, ripe and full on the palate, with finesse, elegance and a good, pretty long finish, this is a complex cuvée that is built more on maturity than freshness this year." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson “Le Vintage” Brut 2009

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in February 2017, Lanson's 2009 Brut Vintage Gold Label is more immediate than its 2008 predecessor, bursting from the glass with notes of citrus oil, green apples, fresh peach and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming, it's bright and penetrating, but also comparatively giving and approachable for a young-vintage Lanson." - William Kelly, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson Black Label Brut Non-Vintage

R750.01 inc. VAT
"Light gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com

Champagne Lanson Ivory Label Demi-Sec Non-Vintage

R595.00 inc. VAT
"After a minimum of 3 years ageing in the cellars, Ivory Label unveils its colour with gold-coloured highlights that hint at the presence of Pinot Noir. On the nose, the champagne exudes aromas of ripe fruit, cinnamon and honey. On the palate it is fruity, all fullness and sensuality – the perfect thing if you wish to serve something refined to accompany foie gras, fruit tarts and succulent desserts. " - Producer Note

Champagne Lanson Rosé Label Brut Non-Vinatge

R975.00 inc. VAT
"Pale orange. Fresh redcurrant and tangerine aromas are complemented by talc and allspice, with a seductive floral quality building in the glass. Lively and focused on the palate, displaying nervy citrus and red berry flavors and an undercurrent of chalky minerals.

Champagne Lanson White Label Sec Non-Vintage

R765.00 inc. VAT
"Pale gold. Spicy pear, melon and white peach scents and flavors are lifted by a note of tangerine. Emphatically fruity, showing good depth and energy for its sweetness. Closes smooth and long, with a touch of ginger adding bite. Spicy Asian dishes or strong cheeses would be fantastic with this plush Champagne." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Champagne Marguet Père et Fils “Bouzy” Grand Cru 2014

R925.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in September 2019 without any dosage, the 2014 Bouzy Grand Cru exhibits aromas of lemon oil, honeycomb, mirabelle plum and nutmeg, framed by a deft touch of oak. Full-bodied, blocky and muscular, it's rich and dense, with lively acids, a pinpoint mousse and a long, saline finish. The Bouzy will really unwind with a little bottle age. As usual, this cuvée is a Pinot Noir-dominated blend. One of Champagne's most passionate advocates of biodynamic viticulture and aromatherapy since he undertook his family estate's biodynamic conversion in 2009, Benoît Marguet farms just over seven hectares in Ambonnay, as well as small holdings in Bouzy, which he complements with purchased organically farmed grapes from the Côte de Blancs. Working with indigenous yeasts and minimal sulfites—indeed, increasingly, with no sulfites whatsoever—Marguet's vins clairs are vinified in wood and see long élevage before tirage. These days, disgorgement is without dosage. Framed by a delicate patina from their time in oak, these are concentrated, intense and beautifully balanced Champagnes that are invariably precisely defined by site—and, moreover, revolutionary in their ambitions. I have followed Marguet's wines since my student days, and it is clear that Benoît is well on his way to realizing all his ambitions" - William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Marguet Père et Fils “Sapience” Brut Nature Premier Cru 2009

R2,460.00 inc. VAT
"This is the fourth vintage of Benoît Marguet's Sapience, Champagne's first organic prestige cuvée, which he began producing before he took over his family vineyards, using purchased grapes: Bouzy Pinot Noir from Benoît Lahaye, Cumières Pinot Meunier from Vincent Laval and Trépail Chardonnay from David Leclapart. Disgorged in June 2019 without dosage, the 2009 Brut Nature Premier Cru is showing brilliantly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of citrus oil, dried orange peel, white flowers and subtle hints of praline. Full-bodied, layered and textural, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core, ripe but racy acids and a long, intense finish" - William Kelley

"Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
