François Cotat Sancere Grande Côte 2020

R1,050.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Sancerre La Grande Côte is a fine wine with a piercing nose of floral and flint. While it may be dry, it offers a sensation of sweet fruit and high alcohol (14.5%), which Cotat compares to the ripe 2009 and 1990 vintages. Being late-picked and on a south slope, these grapes get ripe, and in this vintage, I can't help but think that the balance has been slightly knocked by this ripeness. That said, it offers delectable texture and sinew and remains an impressive wine. Tasting the 2009 Cul de Beaujeu soon after, high alcohol (15%) remains evident with bottle age." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

François Cotat Sancerre Caillottes 2020

R795.00 inc. VAT
"There's a gentleness to the 2020 Sancerre Caillotttes and a sensation of sweetness despite its evidently being a dry white. Open, seductive and textural, it offers delightful floral characters and ripe fruit. There's a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish, but that’s nitpicking." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

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 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 du Bel Air Bourgueil “les Marsaules” 2018

R535.00 inc. VAT
"The wine reveals its intense red colour. The nose is distinguished by aromas of crushed black berries or wild strawberries with slightly earthy and smoky notes. The palate is rich in tasty fruit but also firm and balanced. The wine lingers on the palate on a thread of freshness and spices. An impression of gluttony continues during the tasting. No greenness, but a pure and elegant fruit that lingers in the mouth." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine du Bel Air Bourgueil “les Vingt Lieux Dits” 2020

"This wine reveals an intense and deep ruby ​​color. Scents of intense black fruits accompanied by slightly earthy notes delicately fill the senses. The mouth is full, frank and concentrated.

Domaine du Clos Naudin Vouvray Moelleux Réserve 2018

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
"This cuvée has a residual sugar of 130 g/l, with an acidity of 4.5 g/l, and it was bottled just one month before tasting. Youthful purity on the nose, an aromatic profile which suggests finesse, with notes of white peach, freshly crushed pear and crisp white apple flesh. The palate carries a delicious intensity, showing the same pure and finessed style, as well as wonderful complexities redolent of vanilla, wild red fruits, mango and peach too. This is delicious. A pretty amazing wine with astonishing potential." -Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
