Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Bourgogne Chardonnay la Vignée 2019

R335.00 inc. VAT
"Ripe aromas include those of freshly cut apple, straw and a hint of petrol. The rich, round and delicious middle weight flavors possess a plump mouthfeel before culminating in an acceptably persistent finale. This forward effort should drink well almost immediately." 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 Michel Lafarge Bourgogne “Passe-tout-grains l’Exception” 2017

"A pepper and earth-inflected nose is composed by notes of both red and dark berry fruit aromas. The delicious and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of purity along with excellent depth and persistence for what this is. In sum, this offers outstanding quality for the genre, indeed I've rarely seen better." - 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

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 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 Jean-Claude Bachelet Chassagne-Montrachet “Vieilles Vignes” Village 2017

"A distinctly different nose is comprised by hints of pepper and the sauvage on the humus-tinged dark berry fruit aromas. There is a bit more distinction to the nicely energetic bigger bodied flavors that possess at textured mouth feel that carries over to the mildly warm and rustic finale." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison de Montille “Saint Romain” Village 2017

R585.01 inc. VAT
"A super-fresh and relatively high-toned nose offers up notes of green apple, petrol and lemon rind. There is unusually good volume to the middleweight flavors compared to what is typical for the appellation, all wrapped in a clean, dry and citrusy finish that offers nice length if only average depth. To enjoy on the younger side." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Deux Montille Montagny “Les Coères” Premier Cru 2017

"Pungent notes of matchstick character and pear liqueur give way to nicely rich and caressing barely medium weight flavors that possess better vibrancy on the mildly rustic, clean and dry finale. This too should drink well shortly after release." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Savigny-lès-Beaune “Les Lavières” Premier Cru 2017

"Soft wood combines with cool and pure but decidedly ripe red and dark pinot fruit, spice and marked earth/sauvage nuances. The delicious and round medium weight flavors are quite generously proportioned with an opulent mid-palate and much better concentration, all wrapped in a lingering and nicely complex finale. I like this quite a bit though there is a nit which is noticeable warmth and while it's not enough to ruin the balance, neither is it invisible." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Bourgogne Passetoutgrains 2018

"Passetoutgrain is, as its name suggests, a blend of two grape varieties: Gamay and Pinot Noir, which generally represent around a third of the total. The composition of our Bourgogne Passetoutgrain is rather evenly distributed between the two grape varieties. It is a “simple” wine, unpretentious, but elaborated with care, and which is always easily approachable. It is a typically Burgundian appellation that we are keen to promote." Winemaker's notes

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

"Our Bourgogne Aligoté is typical of the appellation. Aligoté is a typically Burgundian grape variety, relatively rare now, but which is in the original Kir recipe, developed by the canon of the same name: one third of crème de cassis and two thirds of Aligoté. It is a wine tense by its acidity which gives it its spine, and beautiful aromas that awaken our taste buds." - Winemaker's notes

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 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

Domaine Marquis D’Angerville Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2018

R675.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Marquis D'Angerville Bourgogne Rouge 2018, Here too the expressive nose is both ripe and fresh with cool aromas of red pinot fruit and plenty of warm earth nuances. The sleek, delicious and vibrant middle weight flavors are ever-so-slightly firmer on the dusty and sneaky long finale. This is potentially a very fine Bourgogne." -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

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2017

"An admirably discreet oak influence is present on the relatively high-toned red berry fruit scents that express additional breadth in the form of earth, humus and underbrush. The mid-palate of the middle weight flavors isn't quite as dense as that of the Vosne though there is slightly better precision to the saline, youthfully austere and bitter cherry-inflected finish." - 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
