  • Bruno Thierry Cairanne 2014 NZD $27.95 NZD $24.95
    Cairanne, a relatively new appellation within the Cotes du Rhone, makes wines mainly from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèdre. The 2014 a vintage which is starting to drink superbly now however with another 2 or 3 years it will only get better. Medium to full bodied with good concentration, balance and backbone. Wonderful aromas of thyme, pepper and roasted capsicum are very prominent but it is not only about fruit flavours, it also has excellent depth, length and beautiful balance. Drink now or over the next 4-5 years.... more »
  • Bruno Thierry Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2013 NZD $68.95 NZD $59.95
    We have been importing this producer for a number of years now who is both a negociants and grower producing a wide range of top Cotes du Rhone wines. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is probably one of the best known appellations from this area and also one of the most prestigious. The 2013 vintage is a classic for this appellation and is showing very well now with a brick red purple colour on appearance, and a perfume of black olive, dry herb and black pepper. On the palate it's generous, tightly structured, clean and pure with hints of tapenade, crushed black pepper corns and roasted capsicum. Drink now or cellar for another 3-5 years.... more »
  • Bruno Thierry Cotes du Rhone 2015 NZD $22.95 NZD $19.95
    Another of our latest arrivals from the outstanding producer of Bruno Thierry, a producer that has been making wine in the Rhone Valley since 1985. This is very much their straightforward Cotes du Rhone made from mainly Syrah and a little Grenache however when it comes to quality versus price, it is unbeatable, medium to full bodied with hints of black pepper, tapenade and dry herbs, its focused with vibrant acidity, very well balanced and structured. A wine that will sit very comfortably along other Syrah at $30 plus. Drink now or keep for another 2-3 years.... more »
  • Chateau de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Grand Vin 2016 NZD $159.95 $149.95
    “Destined to become Nalys's new flagship (unless the white version steals the show), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Grand Vin is a blend of 59% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 1% Vaccarèse. It is full-bodied and velvety, offering hints of vanilla and sandalwood, but there also are layers of dark cherry fruit. Subtle notes of cinnamon, clove and allspice add interest to the long, silky finish. It is an auspicious debut for the Guigal team.” 95 pts – Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Chateau de Nalys Saint Pierres de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2016 NZD $89.95 $79.95
    “The "second wine" of Nalys, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres is a blend of 69% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, 4% Muscardin, and 1% each Counoise and Mourvèdre. It was put together by the Guigal team, although the vinification’s took place prior to the acquisition. It's an attractive, full-bodied wine that delivers ripe cherries, a hint of stone fruit and very supple tannins. It's a bit too easy to think it will be a long-term cellar candidate, but it is a ripe, juicy mouthful of fruit to drink over the next 6-7 years.” 92 pts – Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Coteaux du Lyonnais Blanc 2015 NZD $21.95 NZD $19.95 Out of Stock
    A second shipment of the white version of the Coteaux du Lyonnais made from 100% Chardonnay. We had to get more of the 2015 simply because it’s a magnificent vintage, the best since 2005, and is drinking superbly now. Flinty, fresh and crisp with a touch of hazelnuts and brioche. Beautiful now and over the next couple of years.... more »
  • Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2016 NZD $19.95 NZD $18.95
    2016 is a very small vintage across many regions in France and no exception for Coteaux du Lyonnais. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning wine that we have been importing for many years. Made from 100% Gamay Noir in the style of Beaujolais, soft, aromatic and perfumed yet with grip, soft tannins and frontal forward fruit. In essence, at the price it doesn’t get any better! Ideally drink this over the next few years and put it in the fridge for about half an hour, it’s magnificent chilled.... 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 Landonne 2015 NZD $699.95 $599.95
    “Of all the terrific single-vineyard Cote Roties I tasted at Guigal this year, I’m most confident that this wine will ultimately reach perfection after bottling. The 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is incredibly rich and concentrated, yet it remains detailed and complex, with plum and cassis flavors accented by hints of pencil shavings, espresso, black olives, roasted meat and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and solidly built, it combines that power with a velvety feel and a nearly endless finish. Wow.” 98 -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 Mouline 2015 NZD $699.95 $599.95
    “Full-bodied and powerful yet elegant, the 2015 Cote Rotie La Mouline is potentially close to perfect. Espresso, grilled meat, caramelized plum and cassis pick up hints of vanilla and herbal-floral notes on the nearly limitless finish. I can’t wait to try this again next year.” 97-99 – 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 »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2015 NZD $699.95 $599.95
    “The potentially perfect 2015 Cote Rotie La Turque takes all of this vineyard’s exotic floral and herbal notes, red raspberry fruit, spice shadings and meaty complexity and compresses them into an incredibly dense, powerful and intense package. Full-bodied, rich and velvety yet ethereal at the same time, this incredibly long wine should prove to be a legend.” 98-100 – Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Triennes Merlot 2011 NZD $24.95 NZD $19.95
    The return of one of our favourites! Owned and operated by the two owners of Domaine Dujac and Domaine de la Romanée Conti, which of course both of them are synonymous for making the very best Burgundy in the world. This is made in the Cotes du Rhone from 100% Merlot. The wine exhibits dark plum and cherry with hints of anise and tobacco. Excellent acidity with good concentration, length and depth. It is also stylish and modern, vibrant and instantly appealing with a good dose of fruit. At the price of $19.95 it is hard to come across anything like this even at $30.... more »
