François Cotat Sancerre Les Culs de Beaujeu 2019

R750.00 inc. VAT
Cuvée Cul de Beaujeu is a grand terroir of Sancerre, a cru on Kimméridgian marl. When tasting, it stands out for its smoky and mineral aromas and exotic fruit. Full and round, on the palate the mineral and exotic fruit flavours abound. Highly elegant, it has good ageing potential.

François Cotat Sancerre Les Caillottes 2019

R550.00 inc. VAT
This comes from parcels around the village of Chavignol, on the chalky limestone soils. It is the most approachable and early drinking of the Cotat range, but even this will improve over many years. It is juicy and long, concentrated but weightless.

Luciano Sandrone Barbera d’Alba 2019

R395.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Barbera d'Alba is pure seduction. Silky and plush, with lovely red berry fruit, spice and floral notes, the Barbera is wonderfully expressive today. Here, too, readers will find a much more restrained style than in the past." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Luciano Sandrone “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba 2019

R494.99 inc. VAT
"The Luciano Sandrone 2019 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is a beautiful expression of this mighty red grape from the north of Italy. The Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero offers a spicy and accessible interpretation with plenty of wild cherry and blue flower. This vintage also offers pretty layer of crushed white peppercorn. You get terrific complexity and a very food-friendly ensemble at a competitive price." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “La Romanée” 2019

"A whiff of the exotic is present on the aromas of white peach, citrus confit and passion fruit. There is excellent punch and detail to the intensely stony medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a bone-dry and impressively long if somewhat lean finale. This is very, very tightly wound and as such I suspect that the finish will eventually flesh out and my rating assumes that this will occur over time." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “La Maltroie” 2019

"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Maltroye 1er Cru has a fragrant, chalk dust scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, touches of orange rind and marmalade lending a welcome tanginess. It might not be a long-term Chassagne, though it is thoroughly enjoyable" - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru “Morgeot” 2019

"A pretty and much more floral nose features mostly ripe white orchard fruit and lemon rind scents. The rich, opulent and concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine length on the balanced finish that is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This too is lovely" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

"Like the La Romanée, this too flirts with hints of exotic on the white and yellow fruit, passion fruit and jasmine tea aromas. The caressing and seductively textured bigger-bodied flavors possess good power on the lemony, very dry and impressively lengthy finish. I would add that this too is rather tightly wound, and I would advise holding it for at least 5 years first." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 1er Cru – “Les Caillerets” 2019

"Smoky aromas of green apple and bright citrus introduce rich, appealingly textured and intense medium weight flavors that exude a subtle bead of minerality on the bone-dry, moderately austere and solidly persistent finish. Here too some patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Lucien Aviet & Fils, Trousseau “Les Bruyères” 2019

“Les Bruyères” is the name of the vineyard. This parcel of Trousseau is planted at a higher altitude on a south-facing slope where the soil composition changes from gravel to marl.

Lucien Aviet & Fils, Trousseau “Marne Rouge” 2019

The grapes come from a 40-year-old vineyard planted on red marl (marne in French) soils and once at the winery, are fermented with indigenous yeasts and the wine matured in oak foudre until bottling.

Domaine Juliette Avril Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2019

R515.00 inc. VAT
The strongest effort I can recall from this producer, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape—a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, matured in concrete tank and wooden foudre—offers up scents of cherries, earth and leather. It's full-bodied, tannic and velvety, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Let's hope quality is on the rise here." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2019…

"An overtly floral nose reflects notes of rose petal, lavender, acacia and violet along with nuances of red and black fruit, earth and a whiff of forest floor. There is excellent intensity, size, weight and power to the attractively textured big-bodied flavors that brim with minerality on the caressing but punchy finale. This beautifully balanced effort is in the classic mold of this wine as it's very clearly built for the long haul and again, I would suggest not touching this wine for at least a decade and two decades would not be much of a surprise." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2019…

Here too there is just enough wood present to remark upon mingling with the equally spicy nose that features notes of plum, various dark berries, exotic tea and hints of game. The sleek, cool and restrained larger-scaled flavors are finer still while flashing no lack of power and drive that really builds toward the intensely saline-suffused finish. This is very classy juice that should age effortlessly for the next two decades. - Allen Meadows

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Beaune Grèves Premier Cru Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2019 Magnum

"A markedly floral-suffused nose blends red and dark currant scents with those of a plethora of spice and earth elements. There is impressive volume to the caressing but solidly punchy and powerful middle weight plus flavors that possess better depth and superb length. Excellent and very much built-to-age." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2019 Magnum

"If Kimmeridgian could be distilled, it would likely smell exactly like the nose of the 2019 Les Clos with the addition of wet chalk, citrus zest and oyster shell. There is equally good delineation to the snappy, painfully intense and overtly stony large-bodied flavors that deliver superb length on the balanced finale. This elegant and classy effort is also built on a base of almost pungent minerality and a wine that should age effortlessly"- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Château L’Innocence de Séraphine Pomerol 2019

"The colour of this wine is a deep red-black right to the rim, with savoury marmite aromas complemented by a lovely nose of violet-infused fruit, rich and intense. It also displays fresh, toasty and really interesting notes that lead to a palate of ripe, spiced, black fruits, making it supple and medium-bodied. It is an elegant wine that also shows lovely cinnamon notes and is fresh and leafy too with a refreshing bitter cranberry twist and bite, but all nicely done, with a long, rich sweet finish." - Winemaker's notes

Château Séraphine Pomerol 2019

"The wine is an intense deep red, almost black in colour and shows great elegance and finesse with fine aromas of ripe black fruit overlaid by a subtle but expressive evolution of soft and textured smoky notes of wild strawberries, blueberries, black cherries, cassis and a touch of spice.On the palate, the wine is rich and lush and packed with an attractive register of fresh red and black fruits with further delicate hints of chocolate and mocha leading to a nicely balanced notion of juiciness and tension that combines well with the silky soft tannins and delivers striking aromatics." - Winemaker's notes
