2019 Domaine des Malandes, Chablis Envers de Valmur Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

DE94
"Domaine des Malandes is a 29ha estate with the 'Envers de Valmur' an intriguing 'insiders' choice from vineyards abutting Grand Cru Vaudésir. Classic in colour, aroma and flavour profile on the... palate, this is a fine Chablis with great potential for further ageing. Bright, focussed and mineral with a lovely balance between freshness, bright acidity and ripe fruit flavours. Long and precise on the finish." 94 pts., Andy Howard MW, decanter.com

2019 Domaine Morey Coffinet, Bourgogne, Blanc 6x75cl

We discovered the wines from Morey-Coffinet in the autumn, and what an introduction to the range this Bourgogne Côte d’Or is - lovely melon and a hint of white peach are followed by a beautifully... pithy and saline finish. A Bourgogne of great subtlety and style with perfect balance. Excellent and could easily be mistaken for Chassagne-Montrachet! (Mr,Wheeler tasting note)

2019 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Bourgogne, Pinot Noir 6x75cl

Domaine Livera is one of the best additions to our portfolio in recent years, and you don’t need to climb the quality ladder very far to realise why. On the first rung sits a Bourgogne pinot noir... of such gorgeous primary fruit, super crunchy, juicy, tantalisingly moreish, it is nigh on impossible not to immediately pour a second glass.

2018 Joseph Roty, Gevrey-Chambertin 6x75cl

RP90
"Bursting with aromas of blackberries, plums, cassis, rich forest floor and black truffle, Roty's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with rich... structuring tannins and a generous core of fruit. Lively and penetrating, if this vintage is overall a rather long-haul proposition chez Roty, this is one cuvée that's unusually approachable young." 90 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com

2019 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Village 6x75cl

"Retaining Livera's modern Burgundian take, this Gevrey Clos Villages is elegant and pure, yet retains an impressive structural core. The palate is bright and offers lush, crystalline red and blue... berry fruit flavours allied to Gevrey-Chambertin's classic red cherry "crunch". Ripe and bold on the palate, there is a velvety intensity here which is so appealing. " (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2017 Klein Constantia, Vin De Constance, Constantia 6x50cl

JR18
"Lustrous mid gold. Dried apricot, orange blossom and citrus peels on the nose, suffused with nutmeg, clove and coffee cream, and an earthy, spicy, saffron-like note. Richly sweet and unctuously... textured, but with a streak of acidity that balances beautifully, and gives a preserved grapefruit and lemon flavour. Fantastic length." 18 pts., Tim Jackson MW, jancisrobinson.com

2020 Crystallum, Peter Max Pinot Noir, Western Cape 6x75cl

VM92
"The 2020 Peter Max felt quite austere on the nose, more so than the 2019 that I had tasted 3-4 days previously. This demands coaxing, eventually revealing brambly red fruit, briar, damp moss and... then later, hints of morello cherries. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, taut and crisp, delivering very pure tort red fruit. There is on attractive "bite" toward the finish, which is structured like a Morey-Saint-Denis, the lingering salinity urging you bock. Excellent, but give it a couple of years for the aromatics to fully open." 92 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2018 Kanonkop, Paul Sauer, Stellenbosch 6x75cl

VM17.5
"Inky crimson, almost black at the core. Dark, spicy, intense, powerful but introverted now. Concentrated black fruit, lovely depth and muscular richness but without being a body-builder wine. As it... opens in the glass, peppery with pure cassis and just a tiny and attractive hint of leafiness. Even a touch of violets, which is unusual on a wine dominated by the Cabernets. Chewy, long and satisfying. Dark-chocolate aftertaste. Powerful, unreconstructed, classic. Big but all beautifully in harmony. Great length. " 17.5 pts., Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

2016 Kanonkop, Paul Sauer, Stellenbosch 6x75cl

VM96
"The 2016 Paul Sauer is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc matured for 24 months in 100% new oak. It has a supremely well defined bouquet of pure blackberry,... boysenberry and violet aromas, the oak seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, perfectly pitched acidity and a caressing texture. This was actually tasted after a fantastic 1994 Paul Sauer was opened the previous night; who is to say that it will not age as well over the next quarter-century? Not only is this a superb wine, but it surely represents one of the best quality-to-price ratios in the world. " 96 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2019 Crystallum, Cinema Pinot Noir, Walker Bay 6x75cl

VM93
"The 2019 Cuvee Cinema was fermented using only native yeasts and a 70/30 ratio of whole clusters to whole berries in a stainless steel tank. The wine was then transferred to barrel (25% new), where... it remained for 11 months before bottling. It has on open and expressive bouquet of pure red cherries, red currant and rose petal aromas, blossoming with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and wonderful symmetry at play on the precise and almost Morey-Saint-Denis like finish. Excellent. " 93 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2020 Domaine Anne et Herve Sigaut, Chambolle-Musigny 6x75cl

Siblings Anne and Hervé Sigaut manage a domaine established at the dawn of the 19th Century, yet they have embraced modern winemaking practices where it makes sense, balancing heritage and 21st... century know-how beautifully. The leitmotif here is one shared with many of the top addresses up and down the Côte d'Or - "great wine is made in the vineyard". The attention to detail and perfectionism are impressive, and yield perfect fruit, which is dealt with with the utmost delicacy and respect in the winery, by a team very mindful of what Chambolle-Musigny is all about - delicacy, elegance and silky texture. This is a new domaine to us this year, and we are very excited to bring these wines to you. Silky, juicy texture, dominated on the palate by a lovely red fruit core and subtle hints of white pepper, followed by a wonderful energy on the finish, this is a truly lovely Chambolle Villages.

2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

RP92
"With much sunshine on Bolgheri we can expect much warming opulence on the palate and a richness finely countered by that Graves-like freshness and minerality San Guido’s terroir imbues. Classic,... dark cherry fruit, violet florals, dense, vibrant purity, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, this corresponding ripeness and vigour in the 2020 will provide sublime drinking pleasure over the next several years."

2018 Aurelien Verdet, Cote de Nuits-Villages, La Pretiere 12x75cl

JR16
From vines found in Comblachien, very close to Nuits-St-Georges, there is an unmistakable quality here. Reflecting brilliantly why Aurélien Verdet is so highly regarded in the region, his Côte de... Nuits Village La Prêtière offers supreme drinking pleasure with a deep and bright aromatic intensity allied to bold and expansive, pure black berry flavours. Like a “concentrate” of pinot noir, this cuvée is completed with lively freshness, structure and elegantly pure tannins. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2018 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

"San Guido’s 2018 Guidalberto is soft, open-knit and inviting. Sweet dark cherry, cinnamon, licorice and new leather fill out the layers in an undeniably attractive Guidalberto that will drink... beautifully upon release. Finesse and elegance are the signatures. The 2018 is a terrific choice for drinking now, while some of the more powerful vintages of Guidalberto come together, or while waiting for its sibling, Sassicaia." 92, Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières Vieilles Vignes is Sigaut's finest communal-level bottling this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of plums and raspberries mingled with hints of... cinnamon and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with an ample core of succulent fruit and powdery structuring tannins, it's seamless and complete." 91 pts., William Kelley, robertparker.com
