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 Premier Cru, La Romanee 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. Ripe and intense, this immediately shows the fabulous opulence La Romanée is famous for. On the palate emerges impressive structure; add length and a level of complexity to rival many a Grand Cru, and you have a 1er Cru that bridges the gap with Chassagne’s most revered vineyards.

2020 Domaine Anne et Herve Sigaut, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru, Les Noirots 6x75cl

VM94
"The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Noirots ler Cru, from 0.5-hectares of 40-year-old vines, feels slightly more stemmy on the nose, yet it is well defined, and the pepperiness complements the darker... fruit compared to the Les Chatelots. The palate is framed by fine tannins, this Chambolle is well-structured with a Morey-like, mineral-driven finish that fans out wonderfully. Excellent. " 94 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2020 Domaine Rossignol Trapet, Bourgogne, Rouge 12x75cl

Really bright ruby in appearance and showing notes of cherries and violets. It is a lovely harmonious wine already and shows great ripeness and expression that punches well above the weight of its modest appellation. It will be spot on for drinking when it arrives, but enjoyable for a good few years after that.

2020 Domaine Rossignol-Trapet, Beaune Premier Cru, Les Teurons 6x75cl

What a lovely wine this is. Intensely floral nose with hints of mint followed by a concentrated mouthful of deep Morrello cherry with precise and well-structured tannins. It is a great example of what this vineyard can produce in the hands of a master winemaker.

2020 Domaine Rossignol Trapet, Beaune, Les Mariages 12x75cl

The delightfully named “Les Mariages” vineyard historically saw newlyweds, encouraged by the two churches nearby, ambling through the rows of pinot noir after their nuptials, and meeting there. ... It is on the lower slopes adjacent to the premier cru vineyards of Les Grèves and Les Toussaints and gives rise to wines that offer more than a passing nod to those from these outstanding terroirs. Nicolas’ ‘Les Mariages’ is a very pretty and easy-going wine that oozes ripe berry fruits and has a delightful, subtle, tannic structure. It is undeniably enjoyable now but there is certainly no rush to drink this, and patience will undoubtedly be rewarded.

2020 Samuel Billaud, Chablis Grand Cru, Bougros 6x75cl

The Billaud family have been producing great Chablis since 1815. 6th generation Samuel set out on his own in 2010 and it is fair to say that after a decade, his dynamic approach and great winemaking... touch have taken his domaine from a status of Rising Star to one of the very best, established growers in the region. Samuel makes precise, elegant and terroir-true expressions of every vineyard in his care. His wines are electric and simply crackle with the tension and vibrancy which can be found in the region's best wines. Offering scintillating wines from the refreshing, steely fresh Petit-Chablis through to bold and dynamic Grand Crus, Samuel Billaud is a master of his craft, and as Neal Martin points out, "We should see him right at the top of Chablis producers alongside the likes of Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat". These are singular Chablis and the sheer embodiment of purity and poise. One of the most opulent Grands Crus in Chablis owing to its deep layer of top soil, Bougros in the hands of such a winemaker as Samuel, whose tireless search for precision, elegance and textural quality yields a wine of rare balance and depth. The very top vineyards in Chablis continue to deliver a stunning value alternative to those of the Côte d'Or. Long may that continue.

2020 Samuel Billaud, Chablis 12x75cl

VM89-91
The sheer precision, delicacy, concentration, and elegance expressed in Samuel Billaud’s terroir-true 2020 Chablis cuvées confirm once again why, since setting out from Domaine Billaud-Simon a... decade ago, he has become one of the region’s most respected producers. This was proven to us in our tasting room earlier this year, as all the crackling electricity, vibrancy, purity and tension of great Chablis was in full abundance and will see both the Village and Petit Chablis age beautifully over the next 5 to 7 years. Samuel crafts this cuvée from the fruit of 3 vineyards abutting top 1er crus sites such as Montée de Tonnerre, Montmains and Vaillons, chosen for their complementary qualities. The 2020 result is an outstanding Chablis with great weight and character. It has delightful citrus fruit and steely freshness that is a mouth-watering classic.

2020 Rully Montagne La Folie, Jobard 12x75cl

This is a really impressive wine. Lovely forward citrus fruits with an underlying richness of buttered toast and just a hint of honey. Superbly fresh once again, its fine mineral spine frames this outstanding value white Chalonnaise from a brilliant vintage.

2020 Penfolds, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

RP96
"Looking in on the 389 can be "'can be," she says, parenthetically) a good insight into what we can expect from the upcoming Grange. Now, they are very different wines, no question, however,... stylistically they have much in common and the illumination into the season that birthed the wines in each instance. Here, the 2020 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz has consummate polish and sleek tannins, imbued as they are with graphite, black tea, licorice and resin. The fruit is pure and black and chewy... gorgeous wine. And it lives for decades. This has always been a collector's dream and continues so through this vintage. Highly recommended." 96 pts., Erin Larkin, robertparker.com

These are wines that combine richness and power with complexity and elegance effortlessly, and they come highly recommended. With a superb intensity of citrus fruit dominating its core, this village cuvée shows particularly impressive balance and body: round, rich, long and a gorgeously seductive fruit profile that finishes very cleanly and in great freshness. This lieu-dit greatly impressed us last year; in 2020, Thibault has very much upped the ante.

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 Penfolds, Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

RP94
"The Barossa has the ability to convey a sense of place, dirt and air in the glass. The trick is to not get in the way—a cooper does not terroir make. Despite not being the dominant region in this... blend (for specificity: McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Clare Valley), the Barossa makes a potent contribution. Here, in the 2020 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, the concentrated, dry and warm vintage is on show and provides a splay of earthy, dense fruit, stretched over a framework of savory tannin. Despite Penfolds's reputation for big tannins/big oak, the fruit here overpowers both and streams out over the long finish. The heart of Barossa is here. Very good. Will get better." 94 pts., Erin Larkin, robertparker.com

"Fruit from McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully. 15 months in French (24% new) and American (12% new) oak hogsheads. TA 6.5 g/l, pH 3.6. Paler than the Bin 150. Really... intense cassis nose. Neat and fresh with lots of sweetness on the palate. Then a tense, tighter, tarry finish. Complex but still very youthful." 17 pts., Jancis Robinson

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

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.

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.
