Bordeaux

  • Domaine Lafite Légende 2016 $26.95 $24.95
    From the famous Domaine Baron de Rothschild, a superb entry level Bordeaux from a great classic vintage. Made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, it shows a deep crimson colour with a nose that is intense, very expressive, dominated by fresh fruit aromas (red currant, raspberry) and blended with discreet notes of oak. Beautiful now but will also cellar for a number of years and definitely excellent value for money.

Bordeaux Margaux

  • Chateau Margaux 2007 $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

Bordeaux Medoc

  • Chateau Loudenne Blanc 2013 $31.95 $24.95 Out of Stock
    Aged for 8 months on fine lees with a regular stirring done in French oak barrles one third of which is renewed every year. Pale yellow in colour with hints of green. Intense fruity nose strong in citrus. The attack is sharp. Good volume on the palate with a good length. The finish is fruity freeing peach flavours and woody notes.
  • Chateau Loudenne Rouge 2015 $49.95 $39.95
    We have just received this magnificent 2015 from the Medoc. Chateau Loudenne is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it exudes power, concentration and depth yet very elegant, quintessential Bordeaux and given the superb 2015 vintage, this will develop for another 10 years easily. On appearance it’s bright and almost with a tinge of purple colour, hints of cassis, lead pencil and dust. Ideally better served decanted or at least it should be given a good 30-40 mins to open up and evolve. For lovers of classic Bordeaux, this is for you!

Bordeaux Saint-Estephe

  • Chateau Cos D’Estournel 2009 $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

Bordeaux Saint-Julien

  • Chateau Lagrange 2005 $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

Bordeaux Superieur

  • Chateau Lagrave Paran 2017 $26.95 $24.95
    As is always the case with Pierre Lafon, not a man known for a lot of talking so he just lets his wine do it all for him. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning Bordeaux, one of the first imports of Accent on Wine over 20 years ago. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, medium to full bodied with lovely lush and rounded tannins, concentrated and just beautifully balanced. For a Bordeaux Superior it punches well above its weight, it has power, concentration and depth with a lovely middle palate and beautiful finish. You could easily pay double for a wine of this quality. Drink now or over the next 5-6 years.

Burgundy

  • Simon Bize Aloxe Corton "Le Suchot" Rouge 2017 $94.95 $89.95
    Frankly when it comes to value for money, this has to be one of the best Aloxe Corton that you can find. The wine is expressive and balanced displaying floral notes of thyme, wet leaf and hints of lavender. Medium to full body with beautiful texture with softly extracted tannins, balance and just perfectly focused. Wonderful wine and with a little patience another 7-8 years it will be magnificent!
  • Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru "Aux Guettes" 2017 $126.95 $119.95
    The 1er Cru Aux Guettes and Vergelesses are the two most revered and perhaps best within Simon Bize’s range. This is powerful and dynamic with a lovely bouquet of violets, spring flowers and rosemary, lovely supple tannins with vibrant fresh acidity. Beautifully constructed, silky with perfect balance. This will be marvellous within the next 10 years.
  • Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Fournaux" 2017 $114.95 $99.95
    One of the best 1er Cru from Simon Bize, this has always been one of our favourites, high tone, lovely fresh acidity, depth and concentration, that’s how we would probably describe this wonderful wine. 2017 is a big but also a very good vintage and most of Simon Bize’s wines are crafter for longevity so expect a magnificent Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru within 8-10 years.
  • Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune Rouge 2017 $67.95 $59.95
    A standard village from Savigny-les-Beaune that again typifies the extent that this Domaine is going to even in their basic village wines. On the nose it is fresh, floral, perfumed with a touch of spring flowers, hints of lavender followed by a beautiful seamless acidity, perfect texture and medium body. Will be drinking beautifully over the next 5-6 years plus.

Chablis

  • Domaine Mosnier Chablis Vielles Vignes 2017 $42.95 $39.95
    Sylvain has a family estate of 37 acres of Chardonnay planted in a soil of clay, limestone and chalk, this is the old vines which is absolutely outstanding. It epitomises what real good Chablis should be. It is firm, lean, aromatic and complex with wonderful clean acidity showing outstanding minerality, freshness, purity and depth. Drink now or cellar for 3 to 5 years.
  • Domaine Laffay Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon 2017 $54.95 $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. 2017 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.
  • Domaine Laffay Chablis 2017 $39.95 $37.95
    Classical Chablis this one, dry, mineral, crisp and bursting with freshness, clarity of fruit and medium body but always in balance, not austere or over-done. Laffay is one of those producers that stays the course, his approach is very much hands off when it comes to winemaking he prefers the vineyard to do the talking and this is very much reflected in the wine. It will evolve over the next 4 years or so as it is a little young at present but it will be worth waiting for.
  • Domaine Laffay Petit Chablis 2017 $36.95 $33.95
    One of the small growers that has sustained the traditions and classical style of Chablis. A superb offering of riverbed pebbles, chalk, dry stone, superb minerality yet displaying incredible freshness, focus and flintiness. One of the great characteristics of Chablis is that it is able to offer full bodied wines with length, concentration and depth without having to result to any oak or oak aging. Enjoy now or over the next 2-3 years. Ideal with white meats, fish and shell fish.
  • Domaine Laffay Vaudesir Grand Cru 2014 $94.95 $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.

Languedoc - Roussillon

  • Les Chiens Catalans Blanc 2018 $18.95 $14.95
    This is marvellous and really beautiful! A blend of Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne, typical varieties from the Languedoc-Roussillon (Pays Catalans), it is fresh and crisp with lovely acidity and floral from the addition of Roussanne yet mineral and full bodied. This is ideal for Summer with lovely fresh fish and drank in the South of France such as Monaco.
  • Chevalier de L’Engarran Rouge 2015 $21.95 $19.95
    This is absolutely new from the range of wines by Chateau de L’Engarran. A beautiful blend that describes and typifies Languedoc perfectly. Garrigue, spice and floral notes with hints of leather, dark cherry and hints of tapenade with a bright purple hue. This immediately take you back to the South of France, medium to full bodied, served at around 16-18 degrees with a beautiful ratatouille and you may as well be there yourself!
  • Terres de L'Engarran Rouge 2017 $19.95 $18.95
    A new addition from this much acclaimed producer made from a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache which is full bodied with typical expression of Languedoc in being perfumed and floral with hints of dry herbs and garrigue. On the palate it’s profound with lovely racy acidity, soft caressing tannins and a long finish. Excellent now but better over the next 3-4 years.

Loire Valley

  • Marc Bredif Vouvray 2004 $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
  • Marc Bredif Vouvray 2017 $34.95 $29.95
    Marc Bredif is synonymous with producing outstanding Vouvray in the Loire Valley, this is the classic 2017, an excellent vintage which is just off-dry, full bodied, complex with slight hints of oiliness, profound and rich. Vouvray, made from Chenin Blanc, can be enjoyed now but this will also cellar for many years. Excellent with food or just on its own!
  • G.F. Cavalier Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V. $14.95 $12.95
    After being without it for almost 2 years, we welcome back this magnificent bubbly that has been with us for over 10 years. We get more requests for this than any other bubbly that we’ve ever stocked. And of course, once you try it, it’s quite understandable. It is an unpretentious, light, dry, very refreshing and crisp bubbly with lovely acidity, refined bubbles and ideal for big functions or just for the weekend! You can drink it on its own, you can mix it with orange juice, cassis etc. At the price it is unequal value for money.
  • Paul Louis Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V. $19.95 $17.95
    We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.

Lyon

  • Louis Tete Coteaux du Lyonnais Rose 2018 $18.95 $17.95
    New to us on a fresh shipment of this stunning Beaujolais producer dating back to the 1800s. This is his Rosé made from Gamay Noir with very little skin contact, dry, crisp and lovely acidity with a fresh perfume like a spring of wild strawberry, rose petals and rosemary water. Full bodied yet beautifully light, refreshing and dry. It’s one of those Rosé’s that keeps coming back to you. Served well chilled is exactly what you would drink on a warm Summer evening while you are planning your trip to France!
  • Benoit Maillard Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2017 $19.95 $18.95
    The much loved, much admired and much drunk by our beloved customers across the country, our Coteaux du Lyonnais 2017 has arrived! This is what true Gamay Noir should be, juicy, fresh, clean, eclectic and at the same time refreshing, satisfying and so easy to drink! We’ve said this before various times, at the price it over delivers, it’s consistent, it typifies what Coteaux du Lyonnais is, not Beaujolais but more restrained, less fruity and with a bigger punch.

Provence

  • Triennes Rose 2018 $26.95 $24.95
    Domaine de Triennes was established in the mid-1990s by two of the foremost producers in Burgundy, Aubert de Villaine from Romanée-Conti and Jacques Seysses from Domaine Dujac, in Provence. They produce red and white and this is the Rosé style. Quintessential Rosé made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. It offers an array of wild berries especially wild strawberry and dry Provence herbs, aromatic, fresh, light and completely dry and very refreshing. In short, what a top Provence Rosé should be.
  • Triennes Les Aureliens Blanc 2013 $19.95 $16.95
    An excellent new addition to the Triennes family. Triennes Blanc is made mainly from Chardonnay that sometimes is blended with Viognier, this produces a soft rounded white wine, perfumed yet fresh and mineral. Excellent with fish, shell fish and white meats. Drinking beautifully now!

Rhone Valley

  • Chateau des Tours Vin de Pays Vaucluse Blanc 2015 $69.95 $59.95
    The modest sixteenth century Château which gives this estate its name lies hidden in a maze of small country lanes between Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Vacqueyras. It is the heart of what is a relatively large Domaine, with part of the 58 ha being given over to cereals and fruit trees. The best land however is reserved exclusively for vines, giving 40 ha of Vins de Pays (on the rich, black, sandy soils) and Côtes du Rhône and Vacqueyras (on the poorer stony, gravely soils).
  • Chateau des Tours Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2015 $69.95 $59.95
    It’s everything a Rhône red should be – deep, seductive berry fruit with a generous helping of spice. It manages to be both full and rich, and supple and silky. Alongside all the hearty generosity of classic Rhône wines, there is a more subtle seductive charming texture to the wine.
  • Chateau des Tours Vacqueyras 2009 $133.95 $119.95
    “The sensational 2009 Vacqueyras should age as well as its 2004 counterpart, but it is a headier cuvee with relatively high alcohol (probably 15+%). It exhibits abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice and raspberry in addition to a full-bodied style filled with fruit and character. Aged completely in tank, it comes across like a family member of the great Chateau Rayas.” 93+ pts – Wine Advocate
  • Chateau de Fonsalette Cuvee Syrah 2006 $268.95 $234.95
    “The outstanding 2006 Fonsalette Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Syrah boasts a dense purple color along with a sweet perfume of tar, charcoal, roasted meats, black olives, and gobs of blackberry fruit as well as camphor. This rich, full-bodied 2006 should evolve for 20-25 years.” 92+ pts – Wine Advocate
