  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2006 NZD $49.95 NZD $44.95
    As is always the case this frankly represents the best expressions of Syrah that can be found anywhere in the world. The wine is made from 100% Syrah from very low yielding vines averaging 30 years old. The viticulture is quite rustic and artisan therefore allowing the wine to express its true terroir characteristics. On appearance it has a very deep almost black with hints of ruby colour with an array of dry herbs, black olive and roasted red pepper. On the palate it is incredibly big and juicy almost chunky with notes of tarragon and tapinade. The finish is persistent and long emphasizing cracked black pepper corns with hints of leather yet remaining clean with great purity. Drinking beautifully now.... more »

  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2012 NZD $39.95 NZD $34.95
    Alain Graillot pretty much revolutionized this appellation back in 1985, wines made from Syrah which are fresh, peppery, clean and very focused.

  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2013 NZD $54.95 NZD $44.95
    This 2013 is magnificent now, it has a perfume of lavender, thyme, a dose of white pepper and an infusion of black pepper. Magnificent now but will also keep improving. Considering the price and the quality, we don’t think you’ll get any better! Please bear in mind that these wines needs a little bit of breathing time so decanting or opening up in advance will help, you will see them changing and you will see the evolution in your glass!... more »
  • Alain Graillot Saint Joseph 2008 NZD $44.95 NZD $39.95
    This is another of his great offerings that even though quite different in style to the Crozes Hermitage, it delivers incomparable value for money. Made from Syrah and sometimes a little Viognier added for colour and aroma, the wine is expressive, full bodied, dense and enormously concentrated. For anyone with an appreciation of Syrah will love this the rustic but yet elegant Saint Joseph. As is always the case Alain Graillot sets the standard in this part of the Rhone his wines are structured and age worthy yet very approachable when young, it will develop for the next 4-5 years.... more »
  • Bruno Thierry Cairanne 2011 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 2011 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 »

  • 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!

  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2011 NZD $624.95
    “Possibly the wine of the vintage, and another candidate for perfection, the 2011 Côte Rôtie La Landonne has a level of complexity and intensity that’s normally reserved for the La Mouline. Exhibiting thrilling notes of dried flower, olive, earth, rendered bacon fat and currant and blackberry-styled fruit, it has a massive core of tannin, yet more than enough fruit, texture and concentration to handle it. I suspect it will be relatively approachable by this cuvee’s standards, but should still dish out tons of pleasure for 2-3 decades.” 98-100/100 Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2012 NZD $632.00 Out of Stock
    "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 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “La Landonne is never destemmed and is always the last of the single-vineyard wines to be picked. Philippe Guigal calls it “the most Pauillac of the Cote Roties,” and the 2013 Cote Rotie La Landonne bears that out. It’s slightly austere and firmly tannic, with attractive floral aromas and layers of dark fruit that will require time to fully emerge.” -- 95+/100 Wine Advocate “The most brooding nose of the trio of La La's with dark coal smoky aromas and dark stones, graphite and cocoa powder. Fruits are in the very dark plum and blackberry spectrum but flavors are held in a more savory mode with assertive, powerful clean-cut tannins that hold endless length. Truly a masterpiece. Best from 2022 and for two decades or more.” -- 97 pts James Suckling... 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 2012 NZD $632.00
    "The 2012 Côte Rôtie La Mouline reminds me of the 2011 with its upfront, incredibly perfumed nose of spring flowers, cured meats, roasted herbs, olives and sweet cassis fruit. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, mouth-filling and already impossible to resist, it expands on the palate and I guarantee this beauty will put a smile on your face anytime over the coming two decades." 97/100 Wine Advocate... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “The 2013 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows none of the vintage’s sometimes dry tannins. It offers crisp black fruit—plums and blackberries—underscored by hints of pencil shavings, espresso and grilled meat. Suave and long, it should drink well for a couple of decades.” -- 94/100 Wine Advocate “An array of sweet-smelling spices and a green-ish pepper edge to the nose with plenty of dark plums, crushed dark violety florals and grilled raisin toast. The palate has smooth, sweeping tannins that build in waves of pastry-like, plush and velvety texture. Long blood plum and creamy espresso finish. Drink now and beyond.” -- 97 pts James Suckling... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2011 NZD $624.95
    “Offering more spice, cured meats, chocolate, cassis and vanilla bean, the 2011 Cote Rotie La Turque is more sexy and open-knit than the 2010, with full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a hard-to-resist profile. It should start to shine at a relatively early age for this cuvee, but still have two decades or more of longevity.” 95-97/100 Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2012 NZD $632.00
    "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 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “The 2013 Cote Rotie La Turque is a bit firm, austere and cool. It’s medium-bodied and tannic, with some drying notes on the finish that suggest further cellaring is warranted. Yes, it shows ample concentration and complex notes of plums and raspberries, but patience will be required.” -- 94 pts Wine Advocate “An air of deep-set complexity. Plenty of baking spices and toastiness with blackberry, pepper, wet stones and concrete. Extremely complex and fragrant. The palate delivers a supple, plush and luxuriant texture with masses of sweet spices and succulent blackberry fruit. Dark chocolate finish that's elegant and concentrated. Drink now and for two decades at least.” -- 96 pts James Suckling... more »
  • Guigal Gigondas 2011 NZD $54.95 NZD $49.95
    Gigondas for many years has been an underrated appellation, this particular appellation can produce full bodied wines that are floral, spicy and tremendously complex. Made from a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah, even though it is a little bit young now however over the next 4-5 years it will develop into a suave, leathery, beautifully textured wine. Cellar for 4-5 years.... more »

    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.
