Ronco del Gnemiz Sauvignon Blanc “Péri” 2021

R950.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Peri whisps up from the glass with a nuanced bouquet, blending savory spices with dusty florals and pear. It's supremely silky and supple, yet lifted as well, placing minerality before fruit but then closes with a pretty inner sweetness. Zests of lemon and lime mingle with savory spice and sage as the 2021 leaves the palate buzzing with residual tension." - Eric Guido, Vinous

François Cotat Sancerre Grande Côte 2020

R1,050.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sancerre La Grande Côte is a fine wine with a piercing nose of floral and flint. While it may be dry, it offers a sensation of sweet fruit and high alcohol (14.5%), which Cotat compares to the ripe 2009 and 1990 vintages. Being late-picked and on a south slope, these grapes get ripe, and in this vintage, I can't help but think that the balance has been slightly knocked by this ripeness. That said, it offers delectable texture and sinew and remains an impressive wine. Tasting the 2009 Cul de Beaujeu soon after, high alcohol (15%) remains evident with bottle age." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

François Cotat Sancerre Caillottes 2020

R795.00 inc. VAT
"There's a gentleness to the 2020 Sancerre Caillotttes and a sensation of sweetness despite its evidently being a dry white. Open, seductive and textural, it offers delightful floral characters and ripe fruit. There's a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish, but that’s nitpicking." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan La Loge aux Moines 2019

R635.00 inc. VAT
This is the flagship wine from a domaine whose history stretches back to the 17th century and which is being revitalised by the current (14th) generation of owners, brothers Arnaud and Julien. These are serious wines, an incredible expression of Pouilly-Fumé. The 4.5ha south-facing parcel of vines that make La Loge aux Moines (The Monks' Lodge) is planted on Kimmeridgian marl with a very high proportion of active limestone. Wines from this plot are characterised by great precision, minerality and structure. It's an austere style, with faintly smoky, herby aromas that hint at great concentration beneath. A delicious expression of Pouilly-Fumé, made with great finesse.- Amy Wislocki, Decanter

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan La Loge aux Moines 2020

R650.00 inc. VAT
"From a, or even the, top site of the appellation, which was planted on Kimmeridgian marl soils a thousand years ago by Benedictines, the 2020 Pouilly-Fumé La Loge aux Moines Monopole opens with a deep, clear, refined and fresh bouquet of ripe white fruits intermingled with iodine notes that represent exceptional mineral complexity and depth. Dense and seriously structured, this is a full-bodied, complex and sustainable Pouilly with lots of expression, finesse, iodine flavors and mineral tension. This is doubtlessly a great Pouilly whose dimensions are already palatable, though the wine is still very young but oh so promising. I preferred a Burgundy glass to taste and appreciate this full-bodied, dense, persistently salty and tensioned Pouilly that is on the quality level of the Mont Damnés Sancerre from the domaine. Arnaud Moreux says, "The Loge aux Moines always shows the minerality of a grand cru from Burgundy but with the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc. It is a unique cuvée that is hard to classify. It's not really a Pouilly-Fumé but always a Loge aux Moines." 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in January 2022." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan Silex 2020

R485.00 inc. VAT
"The straw-yellow colored 2020 Pouilly-Fumé Silex is sourced in Saint-Andelain and opens with a fruit-intense but pure, elegant and terroir-scented nose with thyme and lime notes. Pure, tight and fresh on the palate, this is a tensioned and minerally fresh Pouilly with a straightforward and fine phenolic character (pneumatic pressing) that reveals intensity as well as fine tannins for a long distance run. Already indicating its class but far too young to be uncorked this year. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in January 2022." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan Caillottes 2020

R485.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Moreux-Corty Pouilly-Fumé Artisan Caillottes 2020, "From Les Loges, the 2020 Pouilly-Fumé Caillottes opens beautifully pure and subtly intense as well as mineral or even flinty on the nose but also reveals fine, ripe, white and refreshing fruits with a hint of gooseberries and leafy notes. Elegant, refined and sappy on the palate, this is a dense, sustainably mineral and structured Pouilly with a long, intense and powerful finish that is still a bit phenolic and extract-sweet and needs another year or maybe two in the bottle to start singing. Fine tannins and richness of this elegant 2020 Pouilly indicate good aging potential. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in January 2022." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Domaine François Crochet Sancerre Blanc Exils 2020

R595.00 inc. VAT
This wine is dense and rich. Full in the mouth with white fruits, ripe pears and a touch of yellow fruits, the wine is just matured. It could age further. Drink the wine from 2024.

Domaine François Crochet Sancerre Blanc Le Grand Chemarin 2019

R535.00 inc. VAT
"There's a tenderness to the 2019 Sancerre Les Grand Chemarin, filling the mouth with a silken texture. Expect pure lemon, apple cream and croissant-like flavors from 18 months on lees and malolactic conversion. A zen-like expression, yet fresh, with a fine structure that clasps the front of the mouth, providing reassuring grip. Medium-long length." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
