Domaine du Pelican Arbois Poulsard 2018

R550.00 inc. VAT
"I like the purity and profile of the 2018 Arbois Poulsard, which, like the sample I tasted before, is quite expressive and agreeable, bright and lively, aromatic and open, quite elegant, with some tannins. It's not as funky as many examples of the grape can be. They picked a little early, and the wine is somewhat herbaceous (in a positive way) and only 11.5% alcohol." - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Trois Cépages 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Trois Cepages a is brilliant introduction to Guillaume D’Angerville’s Jura reds. Bright and punchy, the Trois Cepages offers superb fruit intensity in the mid-weight, lifted style that is typical of these wines. The warm growing season gives this blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard an extra kick of radiance that works so well." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Pelican Chardonnay 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Chardonnay is absolutely delicious. Bright and yet also generous, the Chardonnay captures the richness of this year quite well. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and light tropical accents all run through this super-expressive, inviting Chardonnay. What a beautiful wine this is. I would open the 2018 in advance to allow a touch of reduction to blow off." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Champagne Marguet Père et Fils Shaman Grand Cru 2017

R750.00 inc. VAT
"Scents of pear, waxy citrus rind, mandarin orange, peach and buttery pastry, Marguet's NV Shaman 17 is medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous, with bright acids and chalky grip. It was disgorged in September 2020. As readers will remember, the "17" denotes the base vintage, which is complemented by reserve wines from a solera established in 2010." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Château Palmer 2010

R7,500.00 inc. VAT
"The 2010 Palmer has an outgoing, intense and multifaceted bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, crushed violets and hints of cassis - your quintessential Margaux turned up to eleven. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Headier than its Margaux peers, it builds in the mouth with a complex, marine-tinged finish with cracked black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. This is an outstanding Palmer but it needs more time in bottle. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the BI Wines & Spirits 10-Year On tasting." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Fèlsina Vin Santo del Chianti Classico 2009 (375ml)

R525.00 inc. VAT
"Opening to a dark amber color and syrupy rich concentration, the Fèlsina 2009 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle) is another beautiful dessert wine that captures the unique spirit of Tuscany. Toasted chestnut, caramel, apricot and honey peel off the enormous and far-reaching bouquet. The acidity is spot-on and totally cancels out any residual heaviness you might expect. This is another traditional Vin Santo that is totally out of this world."- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne “Le Clos du Château” Blanc 2018

R550.00 inc. VAT
"This is aromatically similar to the Bourgogne with just a bit more freshness that extends to the more energetic medium weight flavors that possess lovely intensity that slowly builds as the lingering, dry and crisp finish sits on the palate. This is an excellent Bourgogne and worthy of your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

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 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 Marsannay “Les Champs Perdrix” 2018

R750.00 inc. VAT
"Hints of the exotic sit atop the aromas of straw, petrol, and yellow and white orchard fruit. There is both good detail and vibrancy to the lightly stony middle-weight flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and delicious finale. This isn't elegant; indeed it flirts with rusticity, but it is refreshing and a wine that should be enjoyable young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2019 Magnum

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
“Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2019 Magnum, A more restrained nose that features notes of ripe cherry, dark raspberry and subtle earth and spice wisps with a floral top note. There is more size, weight and power to the bigger-bodied flavors that culminate in a dusty, serious and manifestly built-to-age finale that exhibits excellent persistence. This too is terrific and worth your interest.” – Allen Meadows’, Burghound

Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2019

R650.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2019, A more restrained nose that features notes of ripe cherry, dark raspberry and subtle earth and spice wisps with a floral top note. There is more size, weight and power to the bigger-bodied flavors that culminate in a dusty, serious and manifestly built-to-age finale that exhibits excellent persistence.

Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Clos Vernay 19 Magnum

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2019 Magnum, Here there is more earth influence on the ripe and beautifully layered aromas of spice, violet, and plum. The gorgeously textured, refined and even more mineral-driven flavors display superb length on the equally complex finale. This is outstanding and one to strongly consider."– Allen Meadows, Burghound

Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Clos Vernay 2019

R650.00 inc. VAT
“Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2019 , Here there is more earth influence on the ripe and beautifully layered aromas of spice, violet, and plum. The gorgeously textured, refined and even more mineral-driven flavors display superb length on the equally complex finale.

Lafarge-Vial Fleurie La Joie du Palais 2019 Magnum

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie "Joie de Palais" 2019 Magnum, This too is attractively elegant and admirably pure with its even more floral suffused aromas of essence of dark berries that are laced with discreet spice wisps. There is fine volume and delineation to the vibrant and intensely mineral-driven medium-weight flavors that firm up as the strikingly long finish sits on the palate. Even so, I suspect that this will be approachable after 3 to 4 years if you enjoy your Bojo on the younger side." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
