Champagne Vilmart et Cie “Grand Cellier D’Or” 2014

R995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2014 Brut Grand Cellier d'Or is one of the best vintages of this wine I can remember tasting. Bright, explosive and full of energy, the 2014 captures a striking balance of depth and vibrancy. All the elements meld together in a beautifully sculpted Champagne loaded with character. The 2014 is even more impressive today than it was when I tasted it earlier in the year" - Antonio Galloni,

Domaine du Pélican Savagnin Ouillé 2017

R494.99 inc. VAT
"The pure, elegant and clean 2017 Arbois Savagnin Ouillé is a more powerful vintage with concentration through low yields, but it still a straight and vertical white, with an unusual combination of power and elegance. There is a pleasant bitterness on the finish that somewhat offsets the ripeness of the year and makes the wine come through as nicely balanced. I tasted a 2015 for comparison, and that wine felt fresher than this, and the nose had more complexity and nuance." - Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pélican Trois Cepages 2017

R500.01 inc. VAT
"A few years ago Guillaume d’Angerville began expanding from Volnay with the acquisition of vineyards in Jura. Since then, he has added to his holdings. The 2017 Arbois Trois Cépages is a pretty blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard. Bright floral notes and red berry fruit are nicely lifted in an attractive, gracious light-bodied wine that is easy to drink now. I suppose a juicier red like a Dolcetto, Barbera, Aglianico or even Chianti Classico would have technically been a better match for this food, but the wine was delicious just the same." - Antonio Galloni,

Domaine Lafarge-Vial “Chiroubles” 2017

R420.00 inc. VAT
"A pepper-inflected nose is composed by mostly earthy dark berry fruit aromas. There is both good energy and intensity to the delicious flavors that possess reasonably good depth though the finish is pretty grippy and it would be fair to observe that the balance was affected by the hail." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Les Safres” 2017

R635.01 inc. VAT
"Hints of rosemary and pine accent cherries and apricots in the Grenache-dominated 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it finishes long and intense. Already drinking well, it should continue to do so through 2030." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes du Rhône “Le Bouquet Des Garrigues” 2017

R295.00 inc. VAT
"Tasted from foudre, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues looks to be a rich, velvety version of this cuvée. Full-bodied, intense and loaded with cherry and raspberry fruit, it still boasts lovely namesake hints of lavender and thyme." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
