Domaine du Pélican Arbois Savagnin Ouillé 2018

R525.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Pélican 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 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

Clos Cantenac Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2015

R895.00 inc. VAT
"Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2015 Clos Cantenac delivers pronounced notes of blackberry preserves, crème de cassis and red currant jelly with touches of garrigue, lavender, smoked meats and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with expressive red and black fruit preserves, framed by velvety tannins and wonderful freshness, leading to a very long, spicy finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2017

R4,710.00 inc. VAT
"From the same grape supplier as Chapelle-Chambertin. Here the colour is a little bit fresher and the nose too is not so uniformly black – more a dark red approach. This retains some elegance, with a classy full-bodied red fruit across the piece, some subtlety to the detail, ripe coulis de framboise, a faint appearance of acidity and very good length. A little limestone coolness behind. More discretion, which is to be welcomed." -Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Champagne Lanson Le Black Label Brut Non-Vintage 375ml

R425.01 inc. VAT
Champagne Lanson Black Label Brut Non-Vintage - “Light gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick-up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness.”- Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2018

R5,595.00 inc. VAT
"This too is notably ripe though the spicier and more floral-inflected dark berry fruit aromas are not jammy. While there isn't quite the same concentration there is markedly better vibrancy to the broad-shouldered flavors that possess a highly succulent mid-palate, all wrapped in a discreetly stony and sneaky long finish. The compact and built-to-age finish makes clear that plenty of patience will be beneficial." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"Our Bourgogne Aligoté is typical of the appellation. Aligoté is a typically Burgundian grape variety, relatively rare now, but which is in the original Kir recipe, developed by the canon of the same name: one third of crème de cassis and two thirds of Aligoté. It is a wine tense by its acidity which gives it its spine, and beautiful aromas that awaken our taste buds." - Winemaker's notes

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Bourgogne Passetoutgrains 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
"Passetoutgrain is, as its name suggests, a blend of two grape varieties: Gamay and Pinot Noir, which generally represent around a third of the total. The composition of our Bourgogne Passetoutgrain is rather evenly distributed between the two grape varieties. It is a “simple” wine, unpretentious, but elaborated with care, and which is always easily approachable. It is a typically Burgundian appellation that we are keen to promote." Winemaker's notes
