Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2021

R724.99 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 20221, “A slightly riper yet cool and wonderfully fresh nose combines notes of spice and pepper with those of both red and dark gamay fruit. There is solid volume and lovely mid-palate density, though here too the finish is a bit lean with a touch of asperity.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021

R724.99 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021, "Pretty aromas include those of raspberry, cherry, earth and a suggestion of crushed fennel. This isn't quite as dense but I very much like the sense of energy to the medium weight flavors that possess slightly better depth, though like the Joie du Palais, the balance isn't perfect." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2018 "A slightly more elegant is otherwise similar aromatic profile introduces punchy, well-detailed and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that also deliver excellent length and depth on the slightly more firmly structured finale.

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2019

R1,295.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2019, "More deeply pitched and slightly less elegant aromas are comprised by notes of plum, dark currant, forest floor and whiffs of game and herbal tea. There is excellent density and power to the broad-shouldered yet still reasonably refined flavors that flash a bracing salinity on the refreshing and impressively long if slightly warm finale. This is always a solid Gevrey villages and 2019 is no exception." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Échezeaux Grand Cru 2020

"Touches of bitter chocolate and kirsch are present on the spicy aromas of plum, violet and soft wood. The finer if not denser flavors possess a velvety texture while also coating the palate with dry extract on the dusty and chalky finish that is likewise youthfully austere. I very much like the depth and persistence and this beauty should also age gracefully for as long as most anyone would like." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Aux Boudots” 2020

"Dense rich black purple. The nose is very heady but Boudots can carry it. Black cherry but there are nuances here, not just power. A wonderful depth, length and breadth to this, brilliantly energetic fruit, tannins just in the right place, refreshing mineral acidity. Finishes on black fruit with a touch of liquorice but wafts of redder notes are never far away." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru “Les Chaumes” 2020

"There is just enough reduction lurking in the background to dampen the expressiveness of the aromas of anise, violet, clove and black cherry. The seductive, caressing and lilting medium-bodied flavors possess good refinement on the complex, persistent and moderately structured finale. This is better than it usually is." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Bossières” Village 2020

Domaine Jean Grivot Vosne-Romanée “Bossières” Village 2020, "Rich mid purple. This has a very lifted bouquet, fresher than the regular Vosne. Some violets, a very pure crystalline fruit, easily enough density to cover the tannins, and an amazing aftertaste. Very long indeed. " - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin “Mes Cinq Terroirs” 2020

Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs 2020, "From the northern end of Gevrey-Chambertin, towards Brochon. One third whole bunch and 25% new wood. Glowing crimson purple, a little bit deeper than Arnaud’s Ma Cuvée. The oak shows a little less, this has a superb richness of fruit which remains totally fresh. All in red fruit. No question but this will make some great bottles. Really long finish. " - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020

R575.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020, "An expressive and airy nose reflects notes of mineral reduction, green fruit and plenty of citrus influence. There is slightly better density and a more attractive texture to the delicious flavors that flash good minerality on the dry, balanced and moderately firm finish. This is worth a look for its level." - Allen Meadow's, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019 " A much spicier nose is cooler and more elegant with its beautifully pure and layered mix of both red and blue pinot fruit compote along with perfumed floral nuances. The vibrant and delineated medium-bodied flavors possess a sophisticated mouthfeel while displaying abundant mineral influence on the rich, sappy and focused finale that just goes on and on. This is a knockout and should age and improve effortlessly for the better part of two decades." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

R1,350.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges "Les Pruliers" 2019, "Interestingly, this possess a similar fruit profile though with decidedly more earth and sauvage characters suffusing it.

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Chaignots” Premier Cru 2019

R1,350.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Chaignots” Premier Cru 2019, "Here too there is just enough wood influence to mention framing the much spicier blend of red currant and dark cherry. The sleeker and more refined medium-bodied flavors possess even better detail and verve on the lingering if mildly toasty finish." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils “A Minima” Bourgogne Rouge 2020

R485.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Bourgogne Passetoutgrain A Minima bursts with aromas of berries, plums and cherries. Medium-bodied, rich and hearty, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and ripe tannins, it has turned out nicely. As usual, it's a blend of equal parts Gamay and Pinot Noir, vinified without added sulfites." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2020 Magnum

R1,150.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2020 "The vineyards are Belair and Cercillon. Clean mid purple. No great bouquet first up. Then it starts to builds, with peonies. A little more tension and structure compared to Chiroubles, nicely nuanced in pretty red fruit, good acid balance and persistence." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2020 Magnum

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
“A more deeply pitched and slightly riper nose blends notes of poached plum, warm earth and more prominent pepper nuances. There is better density to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundance of dry extract buffering the firm tannic spine shaping the youthfully austere, sappy and seriously long finale. This is excellent and absolutely worth your interest.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie La Joie du Palais 2020 Magnum

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie "Joie de Palais" 2020, This is exceptionally pretty, indeed blind it could easily pass for a wine of pure Pinot rather than 100% gamay with its cool and layered aromas of various red berries, spice and soft pepper wisps. There is even better refinement to the detailed and minerally if slightly less complex flavors that conclude in a dusty and mildly austere is solidly persistent finish. Lovely." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Grand Cru “Clos de Vougeot” 2019

R3,495.00 inc. VAT
"This is the first wine to display prominent oak and it's not subtle with plenty of menthol character sitting atop the aromas of dark currant, plum and warm earth. There is fine cut and punch to the moderately concentrated flavors that possess solid size and weight, all wrapped in a lingering finish that is perhaps a bit less youthfully austere than it typically is. While not super-dense, I like the balance and in any event, it has the more than sufficient stuffing to reward extended cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2020

R595.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2020, "An overtly peppery nose of various dark berries and earth nuances lead to supple, round and relatively refined middle weight flavors that possess an appealing texture thanks main to the fine-grained tannins shaping the moderately firm finale. Note that this could be enjoyed soon after release or held for 5 to 7 years first." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

R650.00 inc. VAT

Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” 2019

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
"Here the expressive nose possesses the classic spiciness of a fine Les Cailles along with notes of poached plum, black cherry and enough earth to remind one that this is still a Nuits. The elegant and pure middle weight flavors display a sophisticated texture yet there is no lack of power and sleek muscularity on the lightly stony and balanced finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this needs to develop more depth that it should occur in time." -Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru “Volnay Les Caillerets” Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2019

R1,294.99 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with a deep-pitched bouquet of wild berries and plums mingled with raw cocoa, peonies and subtle hints of spice. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core of fruit and velvety structuring tannins.." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
