Domaine Méo-Camuzet Bourgogne-Hautes Côtes de Nuits Clos St. Philibert Monopoly 2018

"There is good freshness to the softly exotic aromas of mostly white orchard fruit that is trimmed in lychee nut nuances. The forward, supple and easy-going flavors are delicious and sufficiently forward that this should drink well shortly after release."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

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

Maison de Montille Saint Romain Village 2018

R650.00 inc. VAT
Maison de Montille Saint Romain 2018 "A cooler and airier nose presents notes of lemon grass, green apple and a suggestion of pear. The sleek, intense and well-detailed flavors flash more evident minerality on the punch and delicious finish that could also use a bit more depth. However, given how forward this is, it's very likely that this is a wine where what you see is what you get."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru “Les Coères” 2018

R650.00 inc. VAT
Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru "Les Coères" 2018 "This is not aromatically dissimilar from the Bourgogne though here there is a whiff of the exotic and in particular, white peach. There is better volume and punch to the delicious and racy middle weight flavors where the minerality is more pronounced, all wrapped in a bone-dry, crisp and steely finish. Blind, this could pass for a good Chablis without the youthful austerity." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison de Montille Bourgogne Blanc 2018

R494.99 inc. VAT
"A barely perceptible application of wood sets off layered aromas of petrol, citrus and freshly slice pear. There is both good volume and verve to the rich yet crisp and crunchy flavors that exude hints of minerality and bitter lemon on the refreshing finish. This is a quality Bourgogne and worth a look." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne “Le Clos du Château” Blanc 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Bourgogne with just a bit more freshness that extends to the more energetic medium weight flavors that possess lovely intensity that slowly builds as the lingering, dry and crisp finish sits on the palate. This is an excellent Bourgogne and worthy of your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018

"A densely fruited nose speaks of red and dark currant aromas that are laced with warm earth hints. There is better vibrancy and freshness to the solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that conclude in a firm, rustic and youthfully austere finale. This excellent effort is a big and built-to-age Bourgogne." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils “A Minima” Bourgogne Rouge 2019

R395.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils “A Minima” Bourgogne Rouge 2019, A peppery, ripe and earthy nose is comprised mostly by notes of dark currants and violet. The sleek, intense and nicely detailed middle weight flavors conclude in a mildly austere and rustic finale. This is excellent for the genre and worth checking out." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2018

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with a deeper-pitched bouquet of cassis, dark berry fruit, baking chocolate, rich soil tones and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and mineral, this has a more structured, tensile profile than the Domaine's regular Gevrey, as well as greater reserves of tightly wound fruit. As readers will remember, this cuvée derives from old vines in the commune of Brochon."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Latricières but perhaps even a bit cooler and with more earth and sauvage elements. There is a really lovely purity to the sleek, dense, intense and markedly powerful large-scaled flavors that exude an almost pungent minerality on the austere, serious and wonderfully persistent and very firmly structured finale. As the Trapet Chambertin often is, this is not a monster of concentration or structure but rather one of refinement and grace." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2018

"Ripe but fresh aromas include those of plum, black cherry, cassis and plenty of earth influence. The opulent, concentrated and powerful larger-scaled flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the balanced, long and complex finale. This is a very good Gevrey villages and worth your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean-Marc Millot Côte de Nuits-Villages Vieilles Vignes 2018

"There is touch of herbal tea to the relatively cool and reserved red currant and soft earth fragrances. There is both good energy and detail to the delicious flavors that terminate in a slightly grippy and drying finish that may have some lingering hail effects." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean-Marc Millot Côte de Nuits “Aux Faulques” 2018

"The holding covers 1.80 ha on a very limestone soil. Glowing purple. There is deep fruit, full of energy, then a lovely spicy touch to finish red with a coating of black. This is really lovely fresh and ripe together: one could imagine whole bunches but in fact this has been destemmed throughout." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard 2018

"Pretty and agreeably airy aromas are comprised by notes of dark raspberry, forest floor and plenty of earth nuances. Like the Seuvrées, the lighter weight flavors lack a bit of mid-palate volume but I like both the energy and the detail of the saline-tinged finish that is firm enough to suggest an aging curve of 6 to 10 years." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Michel Lafarge Bourgogne Passetoutgrain L’Exception 2018

"A strikingly fresh and expressive nose offers up a variety of pepper and earth-inflected red berry aromas. There is a lovely sense of energy to the delicious flavors that display both better than average complexity and persistence for what this is plus it should reward a few years of cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Michel Lafarge Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots Blanc 2018

"A more floral-infused nose freely offers up its aromas of very fresh white-fleshed fruit, citrus zest and a touch of mineral reduction. The sleek, intense and even stonier middle weight flavors are actually not quite as concentrated though they are a bit finer on the clean, dry and relatively tightly wound finish. This balanced and attractive effort should reward up to a decade of cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2018, "An elegant and quite floral suffused nose evidences a lovely array of classic Chablis elements on the mostly white orchard fruit aromas. I very much like the intensity and detail of the medium-weight and decidedly rich flavors that display a mild touch of bitter lemon rind character on the sappy finale. There is a touch of warmth and could use a bit more depth but overall, this is attractive if perhaps not at its usual level." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros 2018

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" 2018, "Pungent and broad-ranging aromas include those of mineral reduction, pear liqueur, green fruit, shellfish and softwood influence. There is excellent volume to the delicious, lightly stony, and notably powerful middle weight plus flavors that conclude in a very firm, clean, dry, long and youthfully austere finish. As the description makes clear, this is presently quite compact though promising."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros “Côte Bôuguerots” 2018.

R1,495.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bôuguerots" 2018 "A pure essence is comprised by notes of white flowers, citrus, mineral reduction and a gentle application of wood. The racy, intense and equally refined middle weight flavors are also super-saline while exhibiting superb length on the balanced, youthfully austere and very dry finale. This is excellent and a wine that should also age effortlessly."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Pére et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2018

R750.00 inc. VAT
"Bouchard Pére et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2018, There is a whiff of reduction but not so much as to materially suppress the brooding and deeply pitched sauvage and violet-inflected dark berry fruit-suffused nose. The rich, intense and subtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a youthfully austere and impressively long finale. I particularly like the depth of this firmly structured effort that is going to require 8 to perhaps as much as 12 years of cellaring to arrive at its peak." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Pere et Fils Meursault Les Clous 2018

R775.00 inc. VAT
Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault “Les Clous” Village 2018 "A ripe but cool nose features no exotic influences on the petrol and mineral reduction-suffused nose where additional notes of wood, lemon rind, green apple and acacia lurk in the background. The delicious, round and attractively mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess good depth on the clean and moderately dry and slightly warm finale. This is a solid Meursault villages that is marked by the vintage but still worth a look. Note that it could easily be approached now." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Vignée 2019

R335.00 inc. VAT
"Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Vignée 2019, earthy aromas of plum and black cherry precede nicely sleek, delicious and vibrant flavors that conclude in a dusty and bitter pit fruit-inflected finale where a hint of youthful austerity arises. This is pretty enough though not especially complex, at least not yet." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits Saint Georges Village 2018

"A very ripe nose blends notes of poached plum, dark currant and plenty of sauvage character. There is slightly better volume and mid-palate density to the velvety and round flavors that also terminate in a mildly warm finish that is sufficiently chewy and rustic to cut the finish somewhat short." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
