Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Macération Pélliculaire 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Savagnin Maceration Lellicualre is outrageously beautiful. A short time of maceration on the skins give its tannins and overall, structure. More like a red wine. Candied orange peel, hazelnut, sage, mint, licorice and dried flowers are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with layers of depth. The 2018 is a showstopper. That’s all there is to it" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Grand Curoulet Savagnin Ouillé 2018

R675.00 inc. VAT
The 2018 Arbois Grand Curoulet (Savagnin Oiullé) is another striking wine in this range. Tangerine oil, floral-infused honey, spice, hazelnut and apricot all run through the 2018. A wine of breadth and texture, the 2018 has so much to offer. Here, too the interplay of richer fruit and bright acids is simply compelling." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Ouillé 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Savagnin Oiullé is fabulous. It presents a beguiling mélange of dried apricot, white flowers, crushed flowers, marzipan, sage and chamomile. The savory profile works so well with the wine’s oily, textured feel, while a hint of reduction adds character. Even with all of its obvious exotic character, the 2018 retains more than enough freshness and minerality to give the wine a real feeling of vibrancy that is impossible to miss. Quite frankly, this is an eye-opening wine." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Grand Curoulet Chardonnay 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"The bottled 2018 Arbois Chardonnay Grand Courolet comes from a plot that used to belong to Robert Aviet. The wine has a spicy nose with balsamic notes of aromatic herbs, medicinal and toasty, quite showy, like it might have had the effect of some yeasts, as it sometimes makes me feel like there are some notes reminiscent of a Vin Jaune. It's a bit peaty and smoky, round and ripe and with integrated acidity."- Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Chardonnay En Barbi 2018

R675.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Chardonnay En Barbi races out of the glass with a stunning display of energy and mineral-drenched energy. Lemon oil, white flowers, almond, chamomile and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that infuse the 2018 with tons of character. Ample and yet sculpted, the 2018 is a wine of total class. In this lineup, the En Barbi is marked by a brilliant aromatic upper register. In a word: dazzling!" - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Pinot Noir 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Pinot Noir is the first Pinot Guillaume d'Angerville made at Domaine du Pe´lican. Beautifully lifted in the glass with effusive aromatics the 2018 is an absolute delight to taste. Crushed red berries blood orange cinnamon and rose petal all grace a Pinot that impresses for its exquisite balance and total class. A whole range of bright saline notes extends the finish while adding notable vibrancy. I can't wait to see how it ages. Tasted from magnum." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pelican Arbois Poulsard 2018

R550.00 inc. VAT
"I like the purity and profile of the 2018 Arbois Poulsard, which, like the sample I tasted before, is quite expressive and agreeable, bright and lively, aromatic and open, quite elegant, with some tannins. It's not as funky as many examples of the grape can be. They picked a little early, and the wine is somewhat herbaceous (in a positive way) and only 11.5% alcohol." - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Trois Cépages 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Trois Cepages a is brilliant introduction to Guillaume D’Angerville’s Jura reds. Bright and punchy, the Trois Cepages offers superb fruit intensity in the mid-weight, lifted style that is typical of these wines. The warm growing season gives this blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard an extra kick of radiance that works so well." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine du Pélican Arbois Chardonnay 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Arbois Chardonnay is absolutely delicious. Bright and yet also generous, the Chardonnay captures the richness of this year quite well. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and light tropical accents all run through this super-expressive, inviting Chardonnay. What a beautiful wine this is. I would open the 2018 in advance to allow a touch of reduction to blow off." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Village 2020

R494.99 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 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

Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2016

R3,500.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2016, "Deep and intense on the nose developing flavors of fruit and spice entwined with subtle oaky hints. Perfect marriage between grace and liveliness, strength and finesse. A superb wine displaying exceptional persistence and of great ageing potential." - Winemaker's notes

Bouchard Père et Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru 2016

R2,750.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru 2016- "A pungent nose is composed by notes of reduction and wood toast. There is outstanding volume, size and weight to the broad-shouldered, intense and energetic flavors where the supporting tannins possess a high level of phenolic maturity while culminating in an impeccably well-balanced finish. This succulent and velvety effort is deceptively firmly structured and will need at least a modicum of patience." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

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 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 Bouchard Pere et Fils Echézeaux 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, Burghound

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

Domaine de Montille “Les Rugiens-Bas” 1er Cru de Pommard 2017

R2,260.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru contains two-thirds whole clusters and matures in one-third new oak. It has an intense bouquet, the fruit slightly darker than the Les Pezerolles, touches of réglisse and star anis emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, smooth in texture with good depth, though I discern more terroir expression on the Les Pezerolles at this moment." - Neal Martin, Vinous
