Château Fourcas-Borie Listrac-Médoc Cru Bourgeois Supérieurs 2015

R494.99 inc. VAT
Made by the same winemaking team as the top estate of Château Ducru-Beaucaillou in Saint-Julien, this wine comes from a long-time Borie family estate. The wine, with its layers of rich blackberry fruits and firm, dusty tannins, is concentrated, dark and certain to age well. Drink from 2025. - Wine Enthusiast

Château Latour Grand Vin 2001

R12,995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2001 Latour is magnificent. A huge, structured wine, the 2001 Latour boasts notable depth to match its vertical, towering structure and pure power. At nearly fifteen years of age, the 2001 remains deep, virile and imposing. With air, the 2001 is a approachable now, but ideally it needs at least a few more years in bottle. This is a superb showing by any measure. Frédéric Engerer adds that 2001 was the last vintage that was lightly filtered prior to bottling."- Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Château Margaux Grand Vin Premier Grand Cru Classé 2004

R9,995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2004 Chateau Margaux has always been a promising wine and here, served blind against the First Growths, it finally proved that patience is necessary when it comes to such wines. It has an exquisite bouquet with brilliant delineation, scents of redcurrant, raspberry coulis, cold stone (almost flint-like) with pencil-lead and cedar lending it a Pauillac-like sense of aristocratic flair. The palate is extremely well balanced with a supple opening, nigh perfect acidity with a surprisingly citric undercurrent that lends so much freshness and tension. While it does not have the weight and power of say, 2000, 2005 or 2009, it cruises along with utmost harmony and you become smitten by its charms - something that is perhaps in short supply among the First Growths in this vintage. This is excellent. " Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Château Raymond-Lafon Sauternes 2011

R825.00 inc. VAT
"Captivating aromas of fresh white flowers, acacia honey, guava and marmaladey botrytis. Smooth and seamless in the mouth, displaying knockout flavors of pineapple, pomelo (rather than grapefruit, which has an element of bitterness that is absent in this wine), English custard and honeyed mango. The finish is extremely long, very sweet and dense, but this come across as a politely styled, very refined version of Raymond-Lafon owing to its harmonious acidity. This outstanding wine is the result of six different tries occurring between September 19 and October 5, but only the middle four went into the grand vin, with the first and last pickings used for the estate's second wine."- Ian D'Agata, Vinous

Château Tertre Rôteboeuf Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2007 Magnum

R8,795.00 inc. VAT
"Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2007 Bordeaux tasting. The 2007 Le Tertre-Rôteboeuf has an irresistible bouquet with plush red and black fruit, crème de cassis and vanilla pod, almost Burgundian in style and billowing with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and plush with dark plum, macerated red cherries and strawberry. But this is all about that velvety texture and the weight and concentration on the finish. Surely this is Tertre-Rôteboeuf? It is! Perhaps the most delicious wine of the vintage." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Château Tertre Rôteboeuf Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2009

R7,995.00 inc. VAT
"Dark ruby-red. Ripe red cherry, raspberry liqueur, coffee and underbrush on the concentrated nose. Then rich, dense and suave on the palate, with a chocolatey ripeness to the red and dark fruit flavors. Finishes very long, with enticing juiciness and smooth tannins. This very rich, sweet Tertre-Roteboeuf is in the process of shutting down and actually offers less of the exuberantly rich sweet fruit it showed during the Primeurs, but it has the stuffing and backbone for a glorious mid-term life in bottle."

Clos Cantenac L’exuberance Rosé 2019 Jeroboam (3L)

R1,060.00 inc. VAT
"The colour is a triumph, a beautifully pale, shimmering salmon pink. A standout in the company of other Bordeaux rose leaving the mouth clean, refreshed and wanting more.” – Hugo Rose, MW

Roc de Cambes Jeroboam 2012 (3l)

R4,995.00 inc. VAT
"A dark, imposing wine, the 2012 Roc des Cambes is distinctly dark and brooding. Black cherries, smoke, licorice, tar and dark spices fleshed [?]. Vertical in style and quite structured, the 2012 could use another few years in bottle to fully come together, which will also help the chewy tannins to integrate a bit more fully. Roc des Cambes is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec that spend 18 months in 100% new French oak." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
