"I started with a clear vision for this wine - only to miss it completely… hence the original name of the wine: 2-CLICKS-OFF. The ‘13 and ‘14 vintages came and went - either down the drain or to a blend. The vineyard then changed ownership and I was out. Lost the vineyard. It happens from time to time. I’m a firm believer in letting things takes its natural course but this time round it was different. I had the conviction that the vineyard was mine to make wine of. It just needed to mature a bit. So I decided to fight for it. Like back in the day when my now wife dated one of my friends…I didn’t give up and in harvest 2016 I received the long-awaited phone call: do I still want the Pinot? Being so late in the season, the grapes were over-ripe and the vineyard was in a neglected state. But I knew that it was my chance to get my foot back in the door.After harvest, when the dust had settled, we sat down and had a chat. I immediately sensed a change of heart. André van Wyk, the now fully-committed sole owner, had a vision but wasn't sure how to go about it. He was also aiming for a classic Pinot. So I took my cue from George Clooney in the OCEAN-8 movie: I needed a team. I approached a guy called Jaco Engelbrecht of Visual Viticulture - an intensely articulated and passionate guy. I introduced Jaco and Andre and immediately there was the proverbial magic in the air. The game was on!" - Winemaker's notes

Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2016

R3,500.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2016, "Deep and intense on the nose developing flavors of fruit and spice entwined with subtle oaky hints. Perfect marriage between grace and liveliness, strength and finesse. A superb wine displaying exceptional persistence and of great ageing potential." - Winemaker's notes

Bouchard Père et Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru 2016

R2,750.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru 2016- "A pungent nose is composed by notes of reduction and wood toast. There is outstanding volume, size and weight to the broad-shouldered, intense and energetic flavors where the supporting tannins possess a high level of phenolic maturity while culminating in an impeccably well-balanced finish. This succulent and velvety effort is deceptively firmly structured and will need at least a modicum of patience." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020

R500.00 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020, "The length of the 2020 growing season helped to produce Pinots with excellent balance and precision. This four vineyard blend - from Mrs M, Sandford, Seadragon and Windansea - is elegant, detailed and refined, with pale colour, wild strawberry, black tea and ginger flavours, electrifying minerality and savoury grip." - Tim Atkin MW

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2019…

"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 Bouchard Pere et Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2019…

Here too there is just enough wood present to remark upon mingling with the equally spicy nose that features notes of plum, various dark berries, exotic tea and hints of game. The sleek, cool and restrained larger-scaled flavors are finer still while flashing no lack of power and drive that really builds toward the intensely saline-suffused finish. This is very classy juice that should age effortlessly for the next two decades. - Allen Meadows

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Beaune Grèves Premier Cru Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2019 Magnum

"A markedly floral-suffused nose blends red and dark currant scents with those of a plethora of spice and earth elements. There is impressive volume to the caressing but solidly punchy and powerful middle weight plus flavors that possess better depth and superb length. Excellent and very much built-to-age." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Newton Johnson Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2020

R300.00 inc. VAT
"This is "only" the Walker Bay Pinot Noir from the Newton Johnsons, but it's pretty special at the price. Made from Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and Bot River fruit, it's wonderfully floral and sappy with some granitic tannins, subtle whole bunch notes and red cherry and pomegranate fruit. Wonderfully drinkable." - Tim Atkin MW

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2017

R4,710.00 inc. VAT
"From the same grape supplier as Chapelle-Chambertin. Here the colour is a little bit fresher and the nose too is not so uniformly black – more a dark red approach. This retains some elegance, with a classy full-bodied red fruit across the piece, some subtlety to the detail, ripe coulis de framboise, a faint appearance of acidity and very good length. A little limestone coolness behind. More discretion, which is to be welcomed." -Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Domaine de Montille “Les Rugiens-Bas” 1er Cru de Pommard 2017

R2,260.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru contains two-thirds whole clusters and matures in one-third new oak. It has an intense bouquet, the fruit slightly darker than the Les Pezerolles, touches of réglisse and star anis emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, smooth in texture with good depth, though I discern more terroir expression on the Les Pezerolles at this moment." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine de Montille Nuits Saint Georges “Aux Thorey” Premier Cru 2018

R1,450.00 inc. VAT
"Aromas of peonies, orange rind, wild berries and sweet soil tones introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey, a medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant wine that's beautifully balanced and structurally refined. This is very promising." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Beaune “Les Sizies” Premier Cru 2018

R975.00 inc. VAT
Domaine de Montille Beaune “Les Sizies” Premier Cru 2018, "A more elegant though still markedly earthy nose speaks of dark berries, violet and a whiff of wood. The caressing yet entirely serious medium weight flavors exude a light minerality while displaying fine length on the focused, detailed and notably firmer finish." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Nuits-Saint-Georges “Aux Saints Juliens” Village 2018

R975.00 inc. VAT
Domaine de Montille Nuits-Saint-Georges “Aux Saints Juliens” Village 2018, "An attractively spicy nose is composed mostly by ripe dark pinot fruit along with hints of violet and warm earth. The velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors possess very good verve and a subtle minerality while the lingering finish is at once austere and ever-so-mildly rustic. This is an excellent Nuits villages and worth checking out." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

R550.00 inc. VAT
"A densely fruited nose speaks of red and dark currant aromas that are laced with warm earth hints. There is better vibrancy and freshness to the solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that conclude in a firm, rustic and youthfully austere finale. This excellent effort is a big and built-to-age Bourgogne." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Marsannay Village Rouge 2018

R625.00 inc. VAT
"From lieux-dits Grand Poirier and Grasse Têtes comes Trapet's 2018 Marsannay, a nicely structured wine that offers up aromas of raspberries, cherries, raw cocoa and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, it's framed by fine, powdery tannins and succulent acids." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2018

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with a deeper-pitched bouquet of cassis, dark berry fruit, baking chocolate, rich soil tones and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and mineral, this has a more structured, tensile profile than the Domaine's regular Gevrey, as well as greater reserves of tightly wound fruit. As readers will remember, this cuvée derives from old vines in the commune of Brochon."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Latricières but perhaps even a bit cooler and with more earth and sauvage elements. There is a really lovely purity to the sleek, dense, intense and markedly powerful large-scaled flavors that exude an almost pungent minerality on the austere, serious and wonderfully persistent and very firmly structured finale. As the Trapet Chambertin often is, this is not a monster of concentration or structure but rather one of refinement and grace." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2018

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
"Ripe but fresh aromas include those of plum, black cherry, cassis and plenty of earth influence. The opulent, concentrated and powerful larger-scaled flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the balanced, long and complex finale. This is a very good Gevrey villages and worth your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean-Marc Millot Côte de Nuits-Villages Vieilles Vignes 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"There is touch of herbal tea to the relatively cool and reserved red currant and soft earth fragrances. There is both good energy and detail to the delicious flavors that terminate in a slightly grippy and drying finish that may have some lingering hail effects." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
