2015 Domaine Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge 6x75cl

RP94
"The flagship wine, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties. It features delicate floral scents and ample cherry and... licorice aromas. Somehow, it manages to be full-bodied and almost creamy in texture but without much weight, then it ends powerfully, with a flourish of rich Mexican chocolate on the long, silky finish. It should drink well for up to 20 years." 94 points, Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com

Fabulous minerality, there is... depth and weight as well as real freshness. Slight almond and a hazelnut note. Direct and taut with good concentration. Lovely! Really delicious!

"Offering up aromas of green pear, honeycomb, rye toast, candied peel and buttery pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, vinous and enveloping, with a creamy attack, fine depth at the core and ripe but... racy acids, complemented by a pinpoint mousse. This is a charming, gourmand and elegantly balanced Blanc de Noirs that represents a fine addition to the Bollinger portfolio." 93 pts., William Kelley, robertpartker.com

2019 Chateau Duhart-Milon 4eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 6x75cl

VM93
"The 2019 Duhart-Milon is bold, juicy and explosive, but also a bit hard in its tannin. I thought some of that austerity would start to resolve with élevage, but it has not, at least not yet. Dark macerated cherry, spice, tobacco and strong Cabernet Sauvignon inflections power through to the finish." 92 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2019 Le Dragon de Quintus, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

VM90
"The 2019 Le Dragon de Quintus is lively and boisterous on the nose with plenty of brambly red fruit, briary and light rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and red plummy fruit, a little "chunky" but very fresh with a surfeit of joie-de-vivre on the finish." 89-91 pts., Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

2020 Morgon Les Charmes, Domaine Raphael Chopin 6x75cl

Gloriously perfumed with cherry and some floral notes, it is followed on the palate by a deeply satisfying, silky texture enrobing the juicy black cherry fruit and almost meaty, savoury notes.... Structured enough to blossom over the next 7 years, this is simply delicious right now, and it will continue to improve for the medium term. Drink 2022-2027. (Mr Wheeler tasting note)

2020 Laurent Cognard, Montagny Premier Cru, Le Vieux Chateau 6x75cl

This monopole Clos vineyard, right at the top of the hill, yields fruit of rare intensity and power, with excellent balancing acidity; deservedly given a little more new oak than the rest of the... range it delivers a sublime mix of creamy citrus curd and chalky notes on the long and clean, fresh finish. Breathtaking power and elegance in this cuvee from a producer redefining expectations for a whole appellation… What a wine!

2020 Domaine Morey Coffinet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Chaumees 6x75cl

We discovered the wines of this Chassagne-Montrachet rising star (established in its current form "only" 30 years ago, although the family cellars date from the 16th century) for the first time in... 2020, and although we were immediately impressed by the portfolio of great vineyards the Morey family cultivate, it was upon tasting the wines with Thibault Morey that we fell in love with them. The estate is run according to biodynamic principles throughout. Thibault is one of the new generation of winemakers who, through precise, rigorous work and an open mind not only to traditional and modern techniques but also to different expressions of the Burgundy terroirs, produce truly exciting wines. These are wines that combine richness and power with complexity and elegance effortlessly, and they come highly recommended. For a Villages Chassagne, Thibault's Chaumes displays a lovely depth of fruit; on the mid-palate we are greeted with ripe, juicy black cherry, yet there is an excellent energy and move toward fresher flavours on the finish. The fine, gently firm and fruit-coated tannin structure makes for a wine that will drink beautifully from 3 years in bottle all the way to 8 years. Another excellent example of the consistency from this Domaine.

Very intensely citrussy yet with an elegant, pithy texture and a dry, mineral finish. This is a very serious Bourgogne Blanc that will age well for 3 to 5 years, developing more savoury complexity and length.

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Les Evocelles 6x75cl

A new find for Mr.Wheeler in the 2019 vintage and one we are pleased to follow since then; Domaine Livera is widely considered the “next Burgundian star” tellingly both by consumers of their... exceptional wines together with their winemaking contemporaries. The Livera family have been settled on the Domaine for almost 100 years, but Damien, who has been in charge for 13 years now, has taken the wines to a different level altogether. His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. Opened, approachable and again with a core of red fruit, suggesting a relatively early picking for preserving freshness and poise. Contiguous with the 1er Crus, it is widely thought that Evocelles was not included in that classification only because most of the vineyard is in Brochon rather than Gevrey. Certainly the complexity and mineral finish point to a terroir of some class, and the relatively high altitude serves it well in this warm vintage. Well worth considering as a great-value option to the premiers crus.

Mind-blowingly powerful yet ever so precise, seamless harmony even at this early stage, and a finish that unfurls layer upon layer of flavour: notes of violets and raspberry, followed by cherry then more savoury hints of winter spice and an almost umami finish. Impossibly delicious.

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Village 6x75cl

His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. At the very centre of the Gevrey commune is Le Clos Village, a vineyard that enjoyed a particularly successful cuvée in 2020. In Philippe's hands, it is full of explosive energy with a depth of flavour to rival that of the better premiers crus, and a Gevrey easily meeting the expectations of a great village cuvée. And then some. Length is particularly impressive here, with real ambition and structure to see it safely through most of its second decade.

Lovely body and juicy, succulent black and red fruit with just a hint of spice; great salinity throughout a long finish, here's a cuvée having it all: approachable, thirst-quenching, yet serious and endowed with deep flavours for graceful ageing.

A very, very fine Bourgogne rouge from vines across Gevrey-Chambertin.

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis 6x75cl

From his modest winery hidden off the beaten track in the little village of Arcenant in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Aurélien Verdet crafts wines of astonishing purity and precision. A highly... talented young winemaker whose following is growing steadily every year, Aurélien is no exception to the adage that “Great wine is created in the vineyard”. Indeed, he lavishes great care and attention on his 5.5 ha of vines, which he farms organically to produce fruit of superb quality. The winemaking is then all about respecting that fruit to bring the terroir through, which he does with great aplomb. A rising star to watch! Wonderfully expressive with notes of violets and white pepper, Aurélien's is a characterful, full-bodied and powerful Morey Villages. The warm conditions yielded a lovely opulence to the fruit, and it shows the typical spicy element one can expect of this commune's wines, with added aromatic flourish courtesy of Aurélien's careful winemaking. A very fine villages cuvée.

Just above Clos de la Roche (with a significant chunk included in the Grand Cru vineyard), les Monts Luisants benefits from a very impressive terroir. And there is no doubt that "impressive" doesn't begin to faithfully describe this cuvée. It is, quite simply, pure dynamite - bursting with flavour, super rich, and it keeps on delivering layer upon layer of flavour - fruit, spice, savoury notes, umami on this finish. Mind-blowing.
