Champagne Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2015 Magnum

R9,300.00 inc. VAT
"The 2015 Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill shows off the savory side of the vintage to great effect. Hints of dried pear, sage, mint, dried flowers, lemon oil and chamomile open gradually in this mid-weight, lithe edition of Pol Roger's tête de cuvée. The 2015 unfolds nicely with time in the glass, but I wouldn't think of opening a bottle anytime soon. Readers will find a nervy Winston Churchill marked by notable freshness and vigor more than size. This is a fine effort in a vintage that has proven to be far trickier than most observers originally envisioned. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged September 2022." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2016 Magnum

R3,400.00 inc. VAT
"Pale yellow with silver highlights, the wine produces an alluring effervescence that rises from a cord of fine persistent bubbles. An especially open and expressive nose begins with notes of dried fruit, cocoa, almond and coconut. Allowed to breathe, notes of yellow fruits such as Mirabelle plum and eau de vie add complexity to the nose which, though young, is rich and promising.The palate is exceedingly fresh. Crisp acidity gives it a strong backbone that carries right through to the finish. Those aromas of dried fruits from the first nose persist, with nuances of citrus, lemon and bitter orange completing the palate and reinforcing the youth of the wine. On the finish, subtle notes of confected fruits come through, in particular candied orange peel." - Winemaker's notes

R1,150.00 inc. VAT
"Pale gold. Spicy pear, melon and white peach scents and flavors are lifted by a note of tangerine. Emphatically fruity, showing good depth and energy for its sweetness. Closes smooth and long, with a touch of ginger adding bite. Spicy Asian dishes or strong cheeses would be fantastic with this plush Champagne." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

R3,395.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in July 2018 with seven grams per liter dosage, Lanson's 2012 Brut Le Vintage offers up aromas of golden orchard fruit, crisp green apple, fresh bread and warm biscuits, followed by a medium to full-bodied, racy and vibrant palate with a fleshy core of fruit that's underpinned by the house's trademark acid spine. Long and penetrating, it stands out as a notable value in the world of grande marque vintage Champagne." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Rich Demi Sec Non-Vintage

R1,165.00 inc. VAT
"Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with around 30 grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Pol Roger's NV Demi Sec Rich is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of honeycomb, ripe pears, brioche, frangipane and candied peel. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's elegantly textural, with racy acids, nicely integrated sugar and a precise finish. This works very well with certain desserts—think fruit tarts made with flaky pâte sucrée—and will pick up additional complexity, making it even more versatile at the table, with bottle age." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non-Vintage

R1,165.00 inc. VAT
Champagne Pol Roger Brut Réserve, "Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Cremant de Bourgogne Louis Bouillot “Grande Réserve” Brut Non-Vintage

R345.00 inc. VAT
"There is a lovely clarity to its pale yellow color with hints of green. The nose is complex, starting with fruit perfumes before evolving to floral notes. The attack is crisp and forthright, with the roundness of red berries, the vivacity of a citrus touch, before an elegant finish, making this a vigorous and generous Crémant de Bourgogne, perfect for an off-the-cuff aperitif or to accompany the most refined of dishes." - Winemaker's notes

Cremant de Bourgogne Louis Bouillot “Grande Réserve” Rosé Non-Vintage

R370.00 inc. VAT
"With a crisp pink colour, this wine offers a gentle balance between acidulated aromas with notes of white blossom and small red fruit like raspberry and redcurrant. Its fine bubbles promise a delightful roundness in the mouth, which reveals all the subtlety of Pinot Noir. Underscored by a pleasant vivacity and sustained fruit, Perle d'Aurore is a delicate Crémant de Bourgogne that can be drunk in any circumstances." - Winemaker's notes

Champagne Lanson Le Black Reserve Non-Vintage

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"Based on the 2014 vintage (and Pinot Noir to the tune of 50%), complemented by 45% reserve wines, Lanson's NV Brut Le Black Réserve was disgorged in July 2019 with seven grams per liter dosage. Mingling aromas of honeycomb and crisp yellow orchard fruit with hints of warm biscuits and orange oil, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with tangy underlying acids, a generous core of fruit and impressive complexity derived from the large percentage of reserve wines. Indeed, readers who—like me—lamented the demise of Lanson's Extra-Age Brut bottling will rediscover some of that cuvée's signature here." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Champagne Lanson Noble Cuvée Brut 1998 Magnum

R4,995.00 inc. VAT
"Light yellow. Rich and smoky, with deep pit fruit aromas enlivened by zesty minerality. Round and fleshy, with peach and poached pear flavors braced by slow-mounting spiciness and citrus zest bite. Takes on a firm character on the finish, which is refreshingly brisk and impressively persistent. This could stand some patience but is plenty of fun to drink now. " - Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Champagne Lanson Le Vintage 2009 Magnum

R2,595.00 inc. VAT
"Disgorged in February 2017, Lanson's 2009 Brut Vintage is more immediate than its 2008 predecessor, bursting from the glass with notes of citrus oil, green apples, fresh peach and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming, it's bright and penetrating, but also comparatively giving and approachable for a young-vintage Lanson." - William Kelly, Wine Advocate

Colmant Cap Classique “Absolu” Zéro Dosage Non-Vintage

R830.00 inc. VAT
"Taut, linear, focused and appealingly bone dry, this all-Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs uses 16% "perpetual reserve" material dating back to 2006 and partial barrel fermentation of the base wine to create added complexity. Mouth-wateringly tangy and chiselled with salted lemon, biscuit and cashew flavours and thrilling palate length." - Tim Atkin MW

Colmant Cap Classique Délice Nectar Non-Vintage

R299.00 inc. VAT
"Elegantly luscious yet still classic, this blend offers an exotic twist to the Colmant style. Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin fruit were used in the 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay blend. A portion (10%) of the wine underwent fermentation in French oak barrels and 20% of reserve wine from previous vintages was blended in to enhance intensity and complexity. Maturation time on lees is 24 months minimum. The wine was then degorged with the addition of a generous liqueur de dosage which added a unique twist to the gentle aroma and flavour." - Winemaker's notes
