Bordeaux Margaux

  • Chateau Margaux 2007 NZD $1,629.95
    "The elegant 2007 Chateau Margaux’s purity, depth of fruit, and overall equilibrium are impressive. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of spring flowers, black currants, and blackberries, a soft, lush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and delicacy allied to impressive depth, texture, and length. Already drinkable, it should continue to offer exceptional pleasure for 15 or more years." -- Robert Parker 93-95/100... more »

Bordeaux Pauillac

  • Reserve de la Comtesse 2012 NZD $98.95 NZD $94.95
    “Half of the production went into the second wine, the 2012 Reserve de la Comtesse (64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot). It is a medium-bodied, pleasant, creamy, seductive effort. While it does not possess a great deal of depth, it reveals a dark ruby color, attractive smoky, black currant and plum-like notes and light tannin.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate... more »

Bordeaux Saint-Emilion

  • Chateau Carteau Pin de Fleurs 2016 NZD $34.95 NZD $29.95
    Made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a relatively small vineyard of around 14 hectares with an average vine age of 30 years, expression, terroir and definition is how you would characterize this Saint-Emilion.

  • Chateau Carteau Pin de Fleurs Grand Cru 2015 NZD $59.95 NZD $56.95
    A small vineyard holding in the appellation of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru of approximately 7 hectares and classical Saint-Emilion varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and sometimes a little Petit Verdot. The wine is full bodied, very well layered with great texture, concentration and depth. On the palate it exhibits dust, dry earth, dry herbs and black truffle. Young at the moment with potential to age for the next 15 years plus.... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2014 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2014 was a vintage vastly different to 2009 and 2010, cooler with less heat yet a good long summer. This resulted in very even ripeness particularly for those producers that did a lot of work in the vineyard. Classical St. Emilion, vibrant acidity, lovely middle palate, freshness and good intensity. Without doubt one of the best balanced wines that we’ve seen in the last few years from Lafon la Tuilerie. Approachable now however this will be a gem in another few years, it has the pedigree and the composure to excel!... more »

Bordeaux Saint-Estephe

  • Chateau Cos D’Estournel 2009 NZD $789.95 Out of Stock
    “One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d’Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half century.” Score 100/100 Robert Parker... more »

Bordeaux Saint-Julien

  • Chateau Lagrange 2005 NZD $159.95 $145.95 Out of Stock
    Sweet, toasty, oaky notes interwoven with hints of black olives, blackberries, cassis, and spice box are found in this densely saturated ruby/purple-hued 2005. While rich, with impressive concentration and purity, it is also tannic, full-bodied, and painfully backward and foreboding. This is another long-term prospect that will require patience.Robert Parker - Wine Advocate... more »

Bordeaux Superieur

  • Chateau Lagrave Paran 2016 NZD $24.95 NZD $22.95
    Perhaps one of the great classic vintages of the 21st century, together with 2000, 2005 and 2015. Lovely bouquet of fresh berries, tar and dry earth, gives way to a profound, concentrated and harmonious wine that at the price it just over delivers. Perfumed and full body with perfect balance, suave and enticing, just beautiful. Approachable now but better over the next 5 years. On the equation of price and quality it doesn’t get any better.... more »

Chablis

  • Domaine Laffay Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon 2015 NZD $54.95 NZD $49.95
    A relatively small vineyard quite elevated with an average vine age of 40 years and low yielding. This is a complete terroir expression of Chablis, nerve, vibrancy with racy mouth-watering acidity but yet with very good fruit weight and composure. 2015 provided another superb vintage from Chablis, low yields and a smaller production compared to other bigger vintages however we think it’s even better. More mineral, fuller body, in essence, a truer expression of Chablis. Cellar from 4 to 6 years.... more »
  • Domaine Laffay Vaudesir Grand Cru 2014 NZD $94.95 NZD $86.95 Out of Stock
    Domaine Laffay produces small amounts of superb traditional Chablis which directly translates the essence of each vineyard into thrilling and mouth watering wines. His Grand Cru Vaudesir is taken from a .25 hectare vineyard planted in 1978. This is a masterpiece especially in a great vintage such as 2014. Vinification is very traditional and artisan making it one of the most terroir driven wines in the world. Yields are very restricted, harvest is done by hand and vinification and elevage is strictly traditional. Full bodied, tense with immense concentration and power, mineral, focused with nerve and pedigree. Will cellar for 6 years plus.... more »
  • Domaine Mosnier Chablis 2015 NZD $39.95 NZD $36.95

Champagne

  • A. Chauvet N.V. Blanc de Blancs NZD $59.95 NZD $54.95 Out of Stock
    Blanc de Blancs means that a Champagne or sparkling wine is made from 100% Chardonnay. This Champagne is also made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from some of the oldest and finest Grand Cru vineyards in the Champagne region. This particular style of Champagne results in a very powerful, full and dry wine. Flavours are more pronounced and robust with the classical "yeasty" tang that comes from the Chardonnay giving this bubbly a wonderful complexity. The bubbles are tiny and highly refined and the flavours will linger and last on your mouth well after each sip, all of which alludes to the quality of this wine. You will find much "branded" Champagne on the market that is of a similar quality to this wine retailing around $100 a bottle.... more »

  • Marc Bredif Vouvray 2004 NZD $64.95 Out of Stock
    "A classic vintage in the Loire Valley with a long, slow ripening season and an abundant crop. For sweet Chenins, 2004 is perhaps overshadowed by the super-concentrated and short ‘03’s and the benchmark ‘05’s. Nevertheless, some excellent wines were made which should age well." -- 4 stars, Very Good. Michael Broadbent... more »

  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2012 NZD $729.95
    "The utterly perfect 2012 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is the star of three single vineyards in 2012. Possessing an off-the-charts sexiness in its layered, concentrated and full-bodied style, it has a wealth of fruit, ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and pedal-to-the-metal notes of black fruits, scorched earth, caramelized meats and crushed rocks. While this cuvée normally needs a decade to become drinkable, there’s a sweetness of fruit here that allows it to offer incredible pleasure even today. Nevertheless, give bottles 5-6 years and enjoy over the following three decades." 100/100 Wine Advocate... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Moline 2011 NZD $624.95
    “Scheduled to be bottled early in 2015, the 2011 Cote Rotie La Mouline is more perfumed, exuberant and approachable than the 2010. It exhibits a crazy bouquet of spice-box, vanilla bean, spring flowers and sweet kirsch, cassis and black raspberry. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with sweet tannin, it will be hard to resist in its youth and have 2+ decades of prime drinking.” 96-99/100 Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2012 NZD $729.95
    "Similar to the La Mouline with its forward, incredibly sexy style, the 2012 Côte Rôtie La Turque (there’s 7% Viognier in the blend) offers a saturated purple color to go with meaty, smoky notes of cassis, cured meats, chocolate and roasted herbs. It’s a big mouthful of a wine, with full-bodied richness and a stacked mid-palate, but it has a seamless, weightless texture, perfectly ripe tannin and a blockbuster finish. I’d happily drink a glass today, but it should be at its finest from 2020-2046." 98/100 Wine Advocate... more »
  • Triennes Merlot 2011 NZD $24.95 NZD $19.95
