Champagne Lanson “Clos Lanson” Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006 Magnum

R6,560.00 inc. VAT
"From the immured one-hectare vineyard on the top of the hill, which also harbors the cellar of Champagne Lanson that dates back into the 18th century, the 2006 Clos Lanson is 100% first press Chardonnay from a very fine, chalky soil. It was fermented and aged in Argonne oak until spring 2007 (no malolactic fermentation), and disgorged after seven and a half years on the lees in December 2014 as Brut Nature with a dosage of three grams per liter. This bright yellow-golden colored prestige Champagne offers a brilliant nose of pure and ripe Chardonnay, along with delicate chalky flavors. Full and round on the palate, with a nice freshness and purity, this is a very elegant and well-balanced Blanc de Blancs. it has an aromatic as well as clear, fresh and mineral finish. This very first release has a very good length and characteristic mineral taste, with iodine notes along with ripe fruit and vanilla brioche flavors in the finish. This is a great new entry in the Lanson portfolio and it will improve with age" - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Pure Extra Brut Non-Vintage

R995.00 inc. VAT
"Pol Roger's brightly colored, white-golden NV Pure Extra Brut is an undosed blend of equal parts of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier that has been aged four years on the lees. This excellent sparkling wine offers a pure, fresh, precise and yeasty bouquet of white fruits intertwined with lemon aromas, some notes of freshly baked rye bread and very subtle smoky flavors (although the wine has never seen any oak). The mousse is as fine and delicate as you can expect from a Pol Roger, and so is the complexity and refined elegance of this Champagne; it is is truly dry, straight and fresh, but also intense, firmly structured and reveals a nice iodine flavor in the long finish. This wine is as subtle as it is complex, and you should give it a second chance if you tend to underrate the first sip. The finish is really remarkable in its tightness, length and purity. Try it with shellfish!" - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Rich Demi-Sec Non-Vintage

R895.00 inc. VAT
"Light, bright yellow. Ripe pear and nectarine on the fragrant nose, with hints of lemon curd, honey and dried fig adding complexity. Shows very good depth and a supple texture, with sweet poached pear and pit fruit nectar flavors sharpened by a minerally element. Closes silky, broad and gently sweet, with a suave floral quality coming up late. This would make a fantastic pairing with blue cheeses." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com

Champagne Vilmart et Cie “Coeur de Cuvée” Brut 2011

R1,625.00 inc. VAT
"The 2011 Brut Coeur de Cuvée has put on a bit of weight since I tasted it last, and that is not a bad thing at all for a year in which the wines are a bit light. Tangerine oil, marzipan, pastry, lemon confit and a touch of sweet oak give the 2011 tons of complexity. Beautifully perfumed and nuanced, the 2011 is once again positively stellar." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com.

Shimmering orange-pink. Powerful, mineral-accented white peach, raspberry and melon scents, along with building citrus pith and floral nuances. Palate-staining red berry, blood orange, nectarine and lavender flavors deftly meld depth and energy. Shows strong tension and repeating mineral character on the strikingly long finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind.

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

Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Côte d’Or Bourgogne Blanc 2018

"A notably ripe yet still attractively fresh nose flashes a hint of exotic fruit character on the notes of white peach, poached pear and whiff of lychee. There is once again very good energy to the delicious, round and rich flavors that also deliver fine length on the clean and dry finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2017

R470.01 inc. VAT
"Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Fleurie exhibits notes of warm spices, ripe cherries and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tangy and tensile, with a nicely elegant profile, but it seems to be missing the flesh and integration of a less complicated vintage." -William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2018

R450.01 inc. VAT
"Fleshy and elegant bouquet revealing citrus, white fruits and flowers aromas. The mouth is fresh, supple underscored by mineral." Winemaker's note

Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape “La Réserve” Rouge 2018

"Hints of cedar and vanilla appear on the nose of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve, which is aged in demi-muids (20% new), adding a human-derived aspect to the mouthwatering notes of cherries and raspberries. It's full-bodied, silky and even almost lacy in texture, delivering intense pleasure on the palate without excess weight, then lingering on the finish, where the red-fruit flavors come to the fore, practically vibrating in intensity. Because of the effects of mildew on the Grenache, this vintage is just over 50% Mourvèdre."- Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Le Tradition” Rouge 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Caillou Le Tradition is a spicy, leather and cherry-scented wine produced from a combination of estate and purchased fruit (all certified organic). It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and silky, with ample charm, but no great depth or richness. Drink it over the next 5–7 years." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Les Safres” Rouge 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
"Deep bright-hued red. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries and potpourri are lent vivacity by a smoky mineral element. Sweet, palate-coating raspberry, cherry preserve, spicecake and floral pastille flavors show a suave blend of depth and energy. Displays fine delineation and finishes with superb clarity and emphatic, red-fruit-driven persistence." Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “La Réserve” Blanc 2019

R565.00 inc. VAT
"The 100% Clairette Rose 2019 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve Blanc was vinified in tank, then aged in a mix of new demi-muids (55%) and stainless steel (45%). Hints of pencil shavings accent peach and lime notes on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is smooth and silky, offering no obstacles to pure enjoyment on the way to a long, zesty finish. I wouldn't hesitate to put this up against many white Châteauneufs." - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Le Bouquet des Garrigues” Blanc 2019

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues Blanc is a tank-fermented and aged blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc and 15% each Roussanne and Viognier. It's more lime-like and linear than the le Caillou bottling, reflecting the different cépages as well as the terroir. Hints of green peach reveal the ripeness of the vintage while retaining a zesty quality. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky feel and terrific length." - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Le Bouquet des Garrigues” Rouge 2018

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues boasts plenty of—you guessed it—garrigue aromas, imparting a slightly briery edge to the cherry-scented fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, soft and cuddly, with supple tannins and charming, early-drinking appeal." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Les Quartz” Rouge 2018

R425.01 inc. VAT
"Slightly bigger and more structured than the "Garrigues" bottling, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone Les Quartz boasts hints of bay leaf and violets accenting cherry and leather notes. Full-bodied and admirably concentrated, framed by silky tannins, this blend of Grenache and Syrah finishes long and savory." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge “Le Caillou” 2019

R250.00 inc. VAT
More sedate than the Esprit Nature (and including some non-estate fruit), the 2019 Cotes du Rhone Le Caillou is still certified organic. Hints of leather and dried spices accent dark berries on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is smooth and supple, ending on hints of earth and modest tannins.

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2016

R724.99 inc. VAT
"As one would reasonably expect this is aromatically completely different with its array of humus, underbrush, red and dark currant and whiff of wood aromas. The cool, pure and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess fine length on the mildly austere finish that is notably less complex, at least for the moment." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault “Les Clous” Village 2017

R695.00 inc. VAT
"An appealingly fresh nose displays cool, airy and citrusy aromas of apple, pear, white flower and soft wood nuances. There is both good richness and energy to the nicely detailed and stony flavors that possess a generous mid-palate mouth feel, all wrapped in a dry and youthfully austere finish. This is a quality Meursault villages." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
