Cap Classique Colmant Absolu Zero NV

Absolu Zero Dosage NV is 100% Chardonnay with the fruit coming from Franschhoek (65%) and Robertson (35%). A portion of the base wine (15%) is fermented in French oak barrels while a further 15% of reserve wine from previous vintages is also blended in. These techniques contribute to the complexity and elegance of the finished product – as does the extended time on lees, 85 months minimum – or seven years in layman’s terms! Colmant Absolu NV is the pinnacle of the range: a Blanc de Blanc with zero dosage and extended lees maturation of 85 months. A poised balance of maturity, complexity and fresh vivacity.

Champagne Lanson “Clos Lanson” Blanc de Blancs Brut 2006

R3,100.00 inc. VAT
"The 2006 Clos Lanson is bright, focused and exceptionally pure. Veins of underlying acidity and chalkiness give the 2006 its super-distinctive, saline-driven personality. Lemon peel, white flowers, chalk and white pepper develop in the glass, adding further dimensions of nuance. With time in the glass, the 2006 acquires lovely textural brilliance, but it remains tense, crystalline and absolutely impeccable in its purity. The aromatics could use a bit more finesse and freshness, but otherwise this is a solid debut. Clos Lanson is fermented entirely in barrel, but the oak is very nicely integrated. Disgorged December, 2014." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Champagne Lanson Rosé Label Brut Non-Vinatge

R975.00 inc. VAT
"Pale orange. Fresh redcurrant and tangerine aromas are complemented by talc and allspice, with a seductive floral quality building in the glass. Lively and focused on the palate, displaying nervy citrus and red berry flavors and an undercurrent of chalky minerals. Finishes with very good clarity, grip and tangy persistence, the red fruit and mineral notes repeating." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com

Champagne Lanson White Label Sec Non-Vintage

R765.00 inc. VAT
"Pale gold. Spicy pear, melon and white peach scents and flavors are lifted by a note of tangerine. Emphatically fruity, showing good depth and energy for its sweetness. Closes smooth and long, with a touch of ginger adding bite. Spicy Asian dishes or strong cheeses would be fantastic with this plush Champagne." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Champagne Larmandier-Bernier Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru “Vieille Vigne du Levant” 2010

R1,325.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in June 2018, the 2010 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vieille Vigne du Levant offers up a bright and detailed bouquet of citrus oil, flowers, white peach, warm bread and a delicate top note of walnut oil that's less pronounced than its delicately oxidative 2009 counterpart. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and satiny, with considerable concentration and old-vine extract, concluding with a long and saline finish." - William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non-Vintage

R895.00 inc. VAT
"Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

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.

Colmant Methode Cap Classique Brut Reserve Non-Vintage

R245.00 inc. VAT
"Produced before the arrival of sparkling wine guru, Paul Gerber, earlier this year, the Colmant Brut Reserve proves that he has good raw material to work with. Based on the 2017 vintage, but with some raw material, it's youthful, dry and well balanced with lovely restraint and focus." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report
