Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru “Les Coères” 2018

R650.00 inc. VAT
Maison de Montille Montagny 1er Cru "Les Coères" 2018 "This is not aromatically dissimilar from the Bourgogne though here there is a whiff of the exotic and in particular, white peach. There is better volume and punch to the delicious and racy middle weight flavors where the minerality is more pronounced, all wrapped in a bone-dry, crisp and steely finish. Blind, this could pass for a good Chablis without the youthful austerity." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2018, "An elegant and quite floral suffused nose evidences a lovely array of classic Chablis elements on the mostly white orchard fruit aromas. I very much like the intensity and detail of the medium-weight and decidedly rich flavors that display a mild touch of bitter lemon rind character on the sappy finale. There is a touch of warmth and could use a bit more depth but overall, this is attractive if perhaps not at its usual level." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2018, "A cool, pure and citrus-tinged nose speaks of oyster shell, iodine and discreet green apple nuances. There is a fine sense of energy to the crisp, minerally and racy flavors that deliver solid length on the bone dry finish that already displays very good complexity. Lovely stuff and worth checking out." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine A&P de Villaine Rully 1er Cru Les Margotés 2017

R895.00 inc. VAT
"From one of the village's finest sites comes the 2017 Rully 1er Cru Les Margotés, a lovely wine that unwinds to reveal notions of pear, orange rind and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's elegant and chalky, with a penetrating, mineral finish. This is well worth seeking out, and it will evidently be a bottling to follow particularly attentively in future vintages." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Vaulorent 2018

R995.00 inc. VAT
Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru “Vaulorent” 2018, "Not surprisingly this is aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is a whiff of wood in evidence. The slightly sleeker and finer medium-bodied flavors possess good power and punch while remaining refined and composed on the impressively long and well-balanced finale." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis D’Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles 2018

R1,650.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Marquis D’Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles 2018, Once again there an elevated level of ripeness to the still fresh nose of cassis, black cherry and poached plum. The slightly more elegant and more concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine richness; indeed the texture is quite seductive, all wrapped in a complex, long and balanced finale where a hint of bitter pit fruit arises."

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru “Aux Boudots” 2017

R2,405.01 inc. VAT
Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru "Aux Boudots" 2017, "Mild reduction pushes the fruit to the background but I doubt that it will last. Otherwise, there is excellent volume, weight and intensity to the muscular and powerful big-bodied but seductively textured flavors that culminate in a youthfully austere and gorgeously long if quite firmly structured finale. This is a very dense wine in the context of the vintage and one that is going to require at least some forbearance." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
