Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2017

"From the same grape supplier as Chapelle-Chambertin. Here the colour is a little bit fresher and the nose too is not so uniformly black – more a dark red approach. This retains some elegance, with a classy full-bodied red fruit across the piece, some subtlety to the detail, ripe coulis de framboise, a faint appearance of acidity and very good length. A little limestone coolness behind. More discretion, which is to be welcomed." -Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia ‘Cicala’ 2015

"The 2015 Barolo Bussia Cicala is like a little steam train that keeps pushing forward. The wine shows the forward momentum and power of the vintage, imparting ripe and rich primary intensity along the way. This steady and elegant expression of Nebbiolo reveals dried blackberry, tar, licorice, smoke and white truffle. The wine's approach is broad and textured as it rolls over the palate. Some 6,000 bottles were produced." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

Poderi Aldo Conterno ‘Conca Tre Pile’ Barbera d’Alba 2016

R595.00 inc. VAT
"Elegant is not a word applicable to most Barberas, but this one is exactly that: a graceful expression of dark plums, blueberries and mandarin oranges. Medium body, fine, silky tannins and bright plums on the finish. "James Suckling
