Champagne Pierre Péters “Grande Réserve” Non-Vintage

R795.00 inc. VAT
"The wine is like crystal, the robe is golden with hints of green typical to the Chardonnay. The mousse is fine and regular with a pretty ribbon of strong bubbles. First nose is flowery, full of fresh flavors quickly evolving to notes of white peaches and citrus peel Some hints of toasted bread, as well. This wine shows its generosity on the palate while remaining very pure and elegant. First sip is both greedy and tense, dominated by whites fruits, lemon confit and tangerine peel. Then come fine hints of grilled hazelnut. The finish reveals the typical chalk of Le Mesnil sur Oger which brings to the wine a vivid effect and a long after-taste of sea salt and iodine." - Producer Note

Champagne Pierre Péters “Réserve Oubliée” Non-Vintage

"The NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Réserve Oubliée is a blend of the best reserve wines from three different vessels: concrete, stainless steel and a 45-hectoliter oak vat from Franz Stockinger in Austria. The "forgotten reserve" shows a complex bouquet with bright and elegant fruit intertwined with notes of nuts, mocha and a touch of smoked speck. Aged sous liège (under natural cork), this is a very pure, fresh, fine, highly complex and energetic Champagne with a long, salty finish. A fascinating example and proof that top quality is also possible with nothing but reserve wines." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Pierre Péters Blanc de Blancs “Grand Cru Extra Brut” Non-Vintage

R795.00 inc. VAT
"The NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut is entirely from the 2014 vintage and was sourced in four parcels of the Côte des Blancs. Opening with potted ginger and white flowers on the clear, fresh, precise and chalky nose, this is a pure, fresh, elegant, beautifully dry and chalky grand cru with an expressive, stimulating iodine-inflected finish that reveals a persistent structure and freshness. This is a damned serious and chalky Blanc de Blancs that was disgorged in January 2018 with just two grams of dosage." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Champagne Pierre Péters Brut “Cuvée de Réserve” Non-Vintage

R750.00 inc. VAT
"The NV Brut Grand Cru Cuvee de Reserve is pure chalk, slate and gunflint. A tense, wiry wine, the Cuvee de Reserve needs time in the glass for its aromas and flavors to fully blossom. White peaches, grapefruit and lime are some of the notes that emerge from this bright, crystalline Champagne." - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2017

'A much more floral-inflected nose is equally fresh and ripe with a broader range of spice elements adding breadth to the pretty red and blue pinot fruit aromas that are trimmed in noticeable if not invasive wood. The caressing and wonderfully vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess better mid-palate density before concluding in a lingering, balanced and much more complex finale. I like the focused drive of the finish; indeed this could aptly be described as a wine that delivers power without weight. I would further note that the 2017 is a relatively elegant example and, like the La Forge, a wine that could be approached on the earlier side, which is to say after 7 to 8 years." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"Bottled in May, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a floral, elegant, unbelievably complex wine. Roses and violets, cherries and stone fruit, cinnamon and allspice and more are carried across the full-bodied yet almost weightless palate, finishing in a swirl of silky tannins and lingering spice. Drink it over the next two decades." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée “Les Malconsorts” Premier Cru 2017

"There is a seductive sweetness to the intensely floral-scented nose of various red berry fruit that are trimmed in a beautiful array of spice elements. The intense and well-detailed middle weight plus flavors culminate in firm, muscular and very serious finish that is dusty, austere and compact. This too will need to flesh out though it appears to have the necessary stuffing to do so if given time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Village 2017

"Aromatically this is fresher still with its broader array of dark cherry, raspberry, rose petal and violet-scented nose. The sleek and intense medium weight flavors possess both a lovely mouthfeel as well as evident minerality on the solidly persistent finish that also flashes a touch of bitter pit fruit character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin “Clos St. Jacques” Premier Cru 2017

"A more elegant and spicier nose consists of red and dark currant aromas laced with a plenitude of spice and floral whiffs. The super-sleek, intense and gorgeously textured medium weight flavors that are penetratingly mineral-driven display excellent depth and persistence. With all of those attributes duly noted, at this stage at least this is not necessarily more interesting than the Combe aux Moines though that of course could well change by the time these both arrive at their full maturities." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
