Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2022

R620.00 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2022, "Family Vineyards is an equal combination of north and south-facing sites and is correspondingly self-assured and well balanced. Fermented with 20% whole bunches and aged in 29% new oak, it has lovely weight and freshness, goji berry, pomegranate and wild strawberry flavours and precise, granular tannins." - Tim Atkin MW

Moya Meaker W.O. Elgin Pinot noir 2022

"The 2022 Pinot Noir Elgin comes from Bokkeveld shale soils, matured in 20% new 300-liter French oak for 11 months. It has a potent bouquet with raspberry leaf, undergrowth and cracked black pepper scents. Fine delineation. The palate has a succulent, slightly sappy entry with plummy red fruit mixed with dried herbs, rosemary and a touch of bay leaf. There’s fine grip on the finish, if not quite the delineation of a top-flight Pinot. Still, quite delicious." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2019

R2,500.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2019, "There is plenty of sauvage elements to the ripe and fresh aromas of pungent earth, plum, wild black cherry and a hint of game. There is more volume, richness and power if less refinement to the broad-shouldered flavors that flash excellent depth and persistence on the very firmly structured finale. This is textbook Pruliers and built like it as well so plenty of patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2019

R1,295.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2019, "More deeply pitched and slightly less elegant aromas are comprised by notes of plum, dark currant, forest floor and whiffs of game and herbal tea. There is excellent density and power to the broad-shouldered yet still reasonably refined flavors that flash a bracing salinity on the refreshing and impressively long if slightly warm finale. This is always a solid Gevrey villages and 2019 is no exception." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Échezeaux Grand Cru 2020

"Touches of bitter chocolate and kirsch are present on the spicy aromas of plum, violet and soft wood. The finer if not denser flavors possess a velvety texture while also coating the palate with dry extract on the dusty and chalky finish that is likewise youthfully austere. I very much like the depth and persistence and this beauty should also age gracefully for as long as most anyone would like." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Aux Boudots” 2020

"Dense rich black purple. The nose is very heady but Boudots can carry it. Black cherry but there are nuances here, not just power. A wonderful depth, length and breadth to this, brilliantly energetic fruit, tannins just in the right place, refreshing mineral acidity. Finishes on black fruit with a touch of liquorice but wafts of redder notes are never far away." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2020

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2020, "Slightly riper aromas of black cherry, raspberry and earth are fresh if brooding. There is both excellent delineation and vibrancy suffusing the delicious medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a chalky, palate drenching and youthfully austere finish. Lovely and very Pruliers in character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru “Les Chaumes” 2020

"There is just enough reduction lurking in the background to dampen the expressiveness of the aromas of anise, violet, clove and black cherry. The seductive, caressing and lilting medium-bodied flavors possess good refinement on the complex, persistent and moderately structured finale. This is better than it usually is." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Bossières” Village 2020

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Bossières” Village 2020, "Rich mid purple. This has a very lifted bouquet, fresher than the regular Vosne. Some violets, a very pure crystalline fruit, easily enough density to cover the tannins, and an amazing aftertaste. Very long indeed. " - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Charmois” 2020

"The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Charmois is pure rich purple in colour, the bouquet has a slightly softer style of raspberry fruit. Very intense linear style of red fruit, the tannins are that much less evident while the acidity remains with us. Long fresh raspberry finish."- Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Village 2020

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Village 2020, "Here the nose is firmly reduced today though there is good freshness and verve to the intense, sleek and beautifully defined medium weight flavors that possess very fine concentration that helps to buffer the moderately firm but fine tannic spine supporting the balanced and impressively persistent finish. This too is a very good wine in the context of its level.", Allen Meadows - Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019 " A much spicier nose is cooler and more elegant with its beautifully pure and layered mix of both red and blue pinot fruit compote along with perfumed floral nuances. The vibrant and delineated medium-bodied flavors possess a sophisticated mouthfeel while displaying abundant mineral influence on the rich, sappy and focused finale that just goes on and on. This is a knockout and should age and improve effortlessly for the better part of two decades." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2019

R1,350.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges "Les Pruliers" 2019, "Interestingly, this possess a similar fruit profile though with decidedly more earth and sauvage characters suffusing it. There is excellent mid-palate density to the powerful and muscular big-bodied flavors that culminate in a powerful, austere and even more serious finale." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Vieilles Vignes” 2019

R965.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges Nuits "Vieilles Vignes" 2019, "Dense aromas of black cherry, plum, earth and whiffs of wood and the sauvage give way to sleek, delicious and detailed flavors that are finer but not denser, all wrapped in an equally attractively textured finish that is more structured. This too is very good for its level plus it should reward up to a decade of cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Grand Cru “Clos de Vougeot” 2019

R3,495.00 inc. VAT
"This is the first wine to display prominent oak and it's not subtle with plenty of menthol character sitting atop the aromas of dark currant, plum and warm earth. There is fine cut and punch to the moderately concentrated flavors that possess solid size and weight, all wrapped in a lingering finish that is perhaps a bit less youthfully austere than it typically is. While not super-dense, I like the balance and in any event, it has the more than sufficient stuffing to reward extended cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2019

R750.00 inc. VAT
Intense, perfumed bouquet with fruit aromas and an animal touch. Nice structure and lovely fleshiness. Good ageing potential. - Producer notes

Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” 2019

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
"Here the expressive nose possesses the classic spiciness of a fine Les Cailles along with notes of poached plum, black cherry and enough earth to remind one that this is still a Nuits. The elegant and pure middle weight flavors display a sophisticated texture yet there is no lack of power and sleek muscularity on the lightly stony and balanced finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this needs to develop more depth that it should occur in time." -Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru “Volnay Les Caillerets” Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2019

R1,294.99 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with a deep-pitched bouquet of wild berries and plums mingled with raw cocoa, peonies and subtle hints of spice. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core of fruit and velvety structuring tannins.." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Grand Cru “Le Corton” 2019

R2,250.00 inc. VAT
"An overtly floral nose reflects notes of rose petal, lavender, acacia and violet along with nuances of red and black fruit, earth and a whiff of forest floor. There is excellent intensity, size, weight and power to the attractively textured big-bodied flavors that brim with minerality on the caressing but punchy finale. This beautifully balanced effort is in the classic mold of this wine as it's very clearly built for the long haul and again, I would suggest not touching this wine for at least a decade and two decades would not be much of a surprise." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Pommard Premier Cru “Les Pézerolles” 2019

R1,995.00 inc. VAT
"Unfurling in the glass with aromas of red berries, rose petals, sweet soil tones and orange rind, the 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Pezerolles is medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety, with a fleshy core of fruit and a vibrant, seamless profile, concluding with a fragrant, peony-inflected finish.- William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “Les Taillepieds” 2019

R2,100.00 inc. VAT
"A super-floral nose seems to have every floral element in the book including a perfumed hint of gardenia that adds a touch of elegance to the exotically spicy aromas of red and black raspberry. The pure and almost painfully intense flavors are like rolling tiny stones around in the mouth while delivering outstanding depth and persistence on the overtly austere, serious and compact finale that leaves zero doubt that this beauty is built-to-age. In a word, terrific." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019

R1,995.00 inc. VAT
Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019, "Slightly riper aromas exhibit nots of plum, black raspberry, spice and violet. There is excellent density to the more voluminous if slightly less refined medium weight flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the slightly firmer tannic spine on the lingering and more complex finale. Lovely.." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2019

R1,495.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2019, "This is also quite firmly reduced and unreadable at present. Otherwise there is equally good energy and delineation to the slightly more refined though still dense and muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess just a bit more depth on the similar finish that is muscular, serious and youthfully austere if not especially rustic." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
