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

Ronco del Gnemiz Chardonnay “Corrado di Manzano” 2020

R625.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Chardonnay Corrado di Manzano is pretty and delicate in style, pulling you close with crushed apples complemented by hints of chamomile and sweet spice. This soothes with its combination of ripe orchard fruit and voluptuous textures, all nicely balanced by bright acidity. Hints of vanilla bean and sweet pear linger, as this tapers off lightly structured. The use of oak here has been masterfully done, about 25% new, giving the Corrado di Manzano extra dimension and complementing hints of wood spice." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Ronco del Gnemiz Chardonnay “Ronco Basso” 2020

R550.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Chardonnay Ronco Basso is youthfully backward today, with crushed almonds giving way to pretty hints of young peach and dusty florals. Its silken textures coat the palate in ripe apple and pear complemented by hints of sweet almond. The finish is long, stained with confectionery spice and a gentle tug of minerality. The Ronco Basso impresses with its balance and elegance." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Domaine de Montille Bourgogne “Le Clos du Château” Blanc 2018

R550.00 inc. VAT
"This is aromatically similar to the Bourgogne with just a bit more freshness that extends to the more energetic medium weight flavors that possess lovely intensity that slowly builds as the lingering, dry and crisp finish sits on the palate. This is an excellent Bourgogne and worthy of your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marc Roy Marsannay “Les Champs Perdrix” 2018

R750.00 inc. VAT
"Hints of the exotic sit atop the aromas of straw, petrol, and yellow and white orchard fruit. There is both good detail and vibrancy to the lightly stony middle-weight flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and delicious finale. This isn't elegant; indeed it flirts with rusticity, but it is refreshing and a wine that should be enjoyable young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Meursault Chevalières 2018

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Aromas of waxy citrus rind, lemon oil, white flowers and blanched almonds preface the 2018 Meursault Les Chevalières, a medium to full-bodied, layered and incisive wine that's concentrated, chalky and penetrating. There are fully seven barrels this year, and the wine is well-worth an effort to seek out." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “La Perrière” Premier Cru 2017

R1,475.00 inc. VAT
"Residual hints of the malolactic fermentation, sulfur and wood are all that are discernible today. Otherwise the sleeker and more mineral-driven flavors possess lovely drive on the intense, focused, linear and serious finish. Note that my rating assumes that the nose will clean up as the sulfur and wood are absorbed." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Colmant Cap Classique Blanc de Blancs Non-Vintage

R329.99 inc. VAT
"Lightly wooded, with 20% reserve wine and nearly four years on lees, this Blanc de Blancs is based on the 2015 vintage. Toasty and tangy, with large bubbles, some baking spice and brioche flavours and some phenolics on the finish." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019
