Château de Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône “Les Deux Albion” Rouge 2016

R250.00 inc. VAT
"A perennial overachiever, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albions continues that run. Garrigue notes accent blueberry fruit in this full-bodied, plush wine. Loaded with hints of cherries and stone fruit, it's a cornucopia of ripe fruit waiting to be slurped down, velvety and long on the finish." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Château de Saint Cosme Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge 2017

R215.00 inc. VAT
"The 100% Syrah 2017 Cotes du Rhone is a bargain superstar, offering hints of smoke, cracked pepper, blueberries and black olives. It's medium to full-bodied, with a long, supple finish. For the $20 (or less) I've seen it selling for, you're not going to find a better Syrah." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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 du Pégau Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Cuvée Reservée” 2016

R995.00 inc. VAT
"Still in foudres, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is even more impressive than it was last year. It's still firmly tannic, but the fruit seems to be growing in stature, adding volume and richness sufficient to round out the tannins. This full-bodied, concentrated wine offers hints of mocha and raspberries, but it seems a bit more monolithic than the 2015 at the moment." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf du Pape “La Crau” 2017

R1,110.00 inc. VAT
"Full shimmering ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe boysenberry, Chambord and Asian spices, and a sexy floral nuance gains strength with air. Sweet and seamless on the palate, displaying a suave blend of power and delicacy to the concentrated red and blue fruit, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors. Shows impressive energy and a mineral quality on the gently tannic, penetrating finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-driven tenacity." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2016

R995.00 inc. VAT
"Undoubtedly one of the top vintages of this wine, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau features classy notes of crushed stones and black tea to go along with ripe raspberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet silky, there's more power and richness in La Crau than in Piedlong, yet there's commensurate elegance and finesse. The wine grows in intensity on the finish without ever seeming heavy or overripe, instead offering hints of tea and licorice." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine Juliette Avril Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017

R475.00 inc. VAT
Avril's cuvée tradition, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape, is a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, aged in a combination of foudres and cement tanks. Some herbal notes accent raspberries and stone fruit in this full-bodied wine, which is silky enough, with a peppery finish. It's well made and harmonious, if not particularly intense or long." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

J.L. Chave Sélection Côtes-du-Rhône “Mon Coeur” 2018

R250.00 inc. VAT
"Deep ruby-red. Smoke-accented cherry, dark berries and licorice on the perfumed nose, which takes on succulent floral and herb nuances with air. Smooth, concentrated and gently sweet, offering mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors and a spicy jolt of cracked pepper. Finishes supple, sweet and quite long, with harmonious tannins and lingering florality." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage “Silène” 2018

R325.00 inc. VAT
"Inky ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented black and blue fruit qualities on the nose, along with hints of olive, licorice and peony that build in the glass. Supple and weighty on the palate, offering expansive blackberry and boysenberry flavors that become firmer with air. The floral note comes back strong on the penetrating finish, which shows outstanding persistence and fine-grained, well-knit tannins. 60% of this fruit was sourced from the granitic soils and steep slopes in the northern sector of the appellation and the other 40% came from the south, where the soils are lighter, based mostly on limestone clay and covered in large alluvial stones and smaller river rocks." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage Blanc “Sybèle” 2018

R325.00 inc. VAT
"Diaphanous straw-yellow. Mineral-driven aromas of pear nectar, tangerine and yellow plum, plus a subtle touch of jasmine. Juicy and tightly focused in the mouth, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are underscored by suggestions of ginger and bitter quinine. The impressively long, penetrating finish shows lingering minerality and fine delineation." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage “Farconnet” 2015

R650.00 inc. VAT
"Ripe and fleshy, with an open-knit personality to the mix of steeped blackberry and black cherry compote flavors, backed by anise, smoldering black tea and loam notes. Offers well-integrated grip, making this approachable while giving it staying power." - Wine Spectator
