2021 Alheit Vineyards, Cartology Bushvines, Western Cape 6x75cl

VM95
"The 2021 Cartology is a worthy follow-up to the 2020. It unfurls gradually on the nose with honeysuckle and light yellow plum and mirabelle scents, a mineral undertow that stealthily gains... prominence. The palate is very well balanced with just a killer line of acidity; Nashi pear and yellow plum commingle towards a resinous finish. After 10 minutes, it really beginning to fire on all cylinders - another magnificent Cartology. Superb." 95 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2019 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 6x75cl

2019 Chateau Malartic Lagraviere Cru Classe, Pessac-Leognan 6x75cl

VM95
"The 2019 Malartic Lagravière presents a refined nose of blackberry, raspberry, cedar and light estuarine aromas, very well defined and focused. The palate is framed by fine-grained tannins, and the... pure blackberry and raspberry notes are laced with blood orange. Maybe just a little more granular in texture than before, but still wonderfully balanced, with great length and nobility. This will age with style. A sophisticated Pessac-Léognan with a lot of potential." 95 pts., Neal Martin, www.vinous.com
