Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2019

R2,500.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2019, "There is plenty of sauvage elements to the ripe and fresh aromas of pungent earth, plum, wild black cherry and a hint of game. There is more volume, richness and power if less refinement to the broad-shouldered flavors that flash excellent depth and persistence on the very firmly structured finale. This is textbook Pruliers and built like it as well so plenty of patience is advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Aux Boudots” 2020

"Dense rich black purple. The nose is very heady but Boudots can carry it. Black cherry but there are nuances here, not just power. A wonderful depth, length and breadth to this, brilliantly energetic fruit, tannins just in the right place, refreshing mineral acidity. Finishes on black fruit with a touch of liquorice but wafts of redder notes are never far away." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2020

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2020, "Slightly riper aromas of black cherry, raspberry and earth are fresh if brooding. There is both excellent delineation and vibrancy suffusing the delicious medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a chalky, palate drenching and youthfully austere finish. Lovely and very Pruliers in character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019

R1,795.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” Premier Cru 2019 " A much spicier nose is cooler and more elegant with its beautifully pure and layered mix of both red and blue pinot fruit compote along with perfumed floral nuances. The vibrant and delineated medium-bodied flavors possess a sophisticated mouthfeel while displaying abundant mineral influence on the rich, sappy and focused finale that just goes on and on. This is a knockout and should age and improve effortlessly for the better part of two decades." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru “Volnay Les Caillerets” Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2019

R1,294.99 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with a deep-pitched bouquet of wild berries and plums mingled with raw cocoa, peonies and subtle hints of spice. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core of fruit and velvety structuring tannins.." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019

R4,250.00 inc. VAT
Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019, "Slightly riper aromas exhibit nots of plum, black raspberry, spice and violet. There is excellent density to the more voluminous if slightly less refined medium weight flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the slightly firmer tannic spine on the lingering and more complex finale. Lovely.." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “Les Taillepieds” 2019

R2,100.00 inc. VAT
"A super-floral nose seems to have every floral element in the book including a perfumed hint of gardenia that adds a touch of elegance to the exotically spicy aromas of red and black raspberry. The pure and almost painfully intense flavors are like rolling tiny stones around in the mouth while delivering outstanding depth and persistence on the overtly austere, serious and compact finale that leaves zero doubt that this beauty is built-to-age. In a word, terrific." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019

R1,995.00 inc. VAT
Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2019, "Slightly riper aromas exhibit nots of plum, black raspberry, spice and violet.

Lovely.." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Premier Cru Beaune “Bressandes” Rouge 2019

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Offering up aromas of rose petals, blackberries, orange rind and sweet soil tones, the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes is medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, with an ample core of succulent fruit, powdery tannins and fine depth at the core. It concludes a very fine range of reds chez Germain this year." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Nuits Saint Georges “Aux Thorey” Premier Cru 2019

R1,495.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Thorey 1er Cru, which is two-thirds whole cluster, has a very focused bouquet of elegant red cherry, raspberry and briary aromas, plus a hint of bay leaf and sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity thanks to the calcareous soils, and displays superb tension and focus toward the finish. A gorgeous, ethereal Aux Thorey." - Neal Martin, Vinous

Domaine de Montille Nuits Saint Georges “Aux Thorey” Premier Cru 2018

R1,450.00 inc. VAT
"Aromas of peonies, orange rind, wild berries and sweet soil tones introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey, a medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant wine that's beautifully balanced and structurally refined. This is very promising." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine de Montille Pommard Premier Cru “Les Rugiens-Bas” 2018

R2,395.00 inc. VAT
"Once again, the wood influence is subtle though not imperceptible on the slightly cooler aromas of lavender, violet, rose petal, red and dark cherry and a whiff of plum liqueur. There is excellent volume to the solidly concentrated and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess evident muscle and power on the firm, serious and complex finale that is also clearly built-to-age. In a word, impressive." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “Les Taillepieds” 2018

R1,989.99 inc. VAT
"A notably ripe yet attractively fresh nose is comprised by notes of exuberantly floral, spice, plum liqueur and relatively prominent menthol influences. The wonderfully sleek, concentrated and intensely mineral-laden flavors possess the hallmark refinement of a fine Taillepieds, all wrapped in a very firmly structured but not really austere finale. With that said, this is a 'buy and forget you own it' wine for at least 10 years and it should ultimately need 20 to 25 years to fully mature." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2018

R1,950.00 inc. VAT
Volnay Premier Cru “En Champans” 2018, "Once again there is liqueur-like character to the aromas of red cherry, passion fruit, spice and pretty floral elements. There is excellent volume to the caressing and palate coating flavors that are refined yet powerful on the very serious, structured and built-to-age finale. This is excellent but patience strongly recommended." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Capita 2018

R2,334.99 inc. VAT
"Aromas of dark berry fruit, rich soil tones, spices and raw cocoa introduce Trapet's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Capita, a blend of fruit from the premiers crus En Ergot, Corbeaux and Combottes, supplemented by a visual selection of small-berried clusters from Petite Chapelle and Clos Prieur that are not destemmed. Deep and layered on the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a lovely sense of energy, powdery structuring tannins and a long, precise finish." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Bouchard Père & Fils Premier Cru Nuits St. Georges “Les Cailles” 2018

R1,594.99 inc. VAT
"Revisited from bottle, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles offers up aromas of cherries, plums, cassis and smoked meats that are still quite youthfully fruit-driven at this early stage. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and elegantly muscular, it's a rich but nicely balanced wine that's holding a lot in reserve." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Les Pruliers” 2018

R2,275.00 inc. VAT
"A subtly spicy nose is comprised by notes of ripe yet very fresh red and dark cherry, lavender and a whiff of sandalwood. The restrained and focused middle weight flavors exude a lovely minerality on the dusty, balanced and wonderfully long finish. This is excellent." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain et Fils Beaune “Bressandes” 1er Cru Rouge 2018

R994.99 inc. VAT
"Once again there is a hint of volatile acidity but here it's so subtle as to be all but invisible on the agreeably fresh and cooler essence of both red and dark pinot fruit that is laced with spice, floral and warm earth wisps. The bigger and richer medium weight flavors possess a relatively refined mouthfeel before terminating in a bitter pit fruit-inflected finale. This lovely effort should drink well early but age well too over the short to mid-term." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville Pommard “Combes Dessus” Premier Cru 2018

R1,550.00 inc. VAT
"A slightly riper nose offers up notes of poached plum, dark raspberry liqueur and whiffs of earth and underbrush. The supple, round and appealingly textured flavors possess first-rate delineation and a subtle salinity that adds a touch of lift to the sappy if ever-so-slightly rustic 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."
