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 Trapet Père et Fils Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

"The 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is a magical wine in the making, and readers might think of it as a more elegant, structurally refined version of Trapet's 1999 Latricières. Wafting from the glass with notes of cherries, cassis, dark chocolate, coniferous forest floor and rose petals, it's full-bodied, velvety and layered, with an incisive spine of acidity, lively acids and terrific concentration, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is worth a special effort to seek out." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Latricières but perhaps even a bit cooler and with more earth and sauvage elements. There is a really lovely purity to the sleek, dense, intense and markedly powerful large-scaled flavors that exude an almost pungent minerality on the austere, serious and wonderfully persistent and very firmly structured finale. As the Trapet Chambertin often is, this is not a monster of concentration or structure but rather one of refinement and grace." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2018

R1,365.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 2018, "This is one of the most elegant wines in the range with its cool and admirably airy and pure aromas of citrus zest, oyster shell, seashore and gentle wood nuances. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors combines volume with refinement while delivering excellent length on the balanced, stony and markedly dry finale. This is not quite as concentrated or complex as the best here but as it usually is, it's a marvelous wine of refinement and punch."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2018

R1,695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2018, "Once again, the nose is both fresh and ripe and while it's not quite as elegant and airy as the Côte Bouguerots there is every bit as much classic Chablis character along with a hint of honey. There is a really lovely mouthfeel to the sappy large-bodied flavors thanks to the copious quantity of dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine on the powerful, punchy and beautifully persistent finale. Like several of the wines in the range, this would benefit substantially from developing more depth though it should be able to do just that over time."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros 2018

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" 2018, "Pungent and broad-ranging aromas include those of mineral reduction, pear liqueur, green fruit, shellfish and softwood influence. There is excellent volume to the delicious, lightly stony, and notably powerful middle weight plus flavors that conclude in a very firm, clean, dry, long and youthfully austere finish. As the description makes clear, this is presently quite compact though promising."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Le Corton Grand Cru 2018

R1,995.00 inc. VAT
" Ample wood influence is present on the cool and pure essence of baked plum liqueur, earth and plenty of floral and spice nuances. There is excellent size, weight and power to the large-scaled but not ponderous flavors that are also shaped by very firm tannins on the beautifully long if slightly warm finale. This is very promising and should ultimately prove to be very long-lived." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Echézeaux Grand Cru 2018

R3,895.00 inc. VAT
" More discreet though still moderately generous wood treatment suffuses the aromas of baked dark berries where copious amounts of floral and spice influence add breadth. The oak does show up on the palate as well though it's not really enough to detract from the wonderfully textured medium weight plus flavors that are also blessed with an abundance of dry extract on the youthfully austere finale. This beauty is also clearly in need of extended cellaring." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Groffier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2018

R6,995.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Groffier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2018, "100% whole bunch and 50% new wood. Glowing purple. Unlike the Sentiers, here the whole bunch style leaps out of the glass, along with a succulent deep red fruit. Ready for bottling. Sweet raspberry wouldn’t mind a little bit more precision, but will be a crowd-pleaser. Good length though."- Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Maison Bouchard Père & Fils Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2017

R3,410.00 inc. VAT
"A generous application of wood and menthol can be found on the dark pinot fruit, spice, floral and newly turned earth aromas. The rich and muscular if rather supple big-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel, indeed even velvety, before culminating in an impressively persistent finish where the only nit is a touch of warmth." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
