Chablis 1er Cru Montmain Pinson Frères 2018 | 
£210.00 per 12 IB

Reasons to Buy

  • The Pinsons have a knack for producing steely, elegant wines from some of Chablis’ most enviable vineyards.
  • The premier cru Montmain gives a precise, ethereal style of Chablis and the 2018 from Pinson Frères is a classic example.
  • Awarded 91-93 points by Jasper Morris MW, he comments that the 2018 is “really stylish with excellent length, just a spice or two at the back”.
  • Burghound is also impressed: “the attractively textured and rich middle weight flavours possess a caressing but solidly intense palate feel before concluding in a sneaky long and bracingly dry finish”. 89-92 points.
  • Excellent premier cru Chablis at just £17.50 a bottle IB.

Gevrey Chambertin Dix Climats Drouhin Laroze 2018 | 
£320.00 per 12 IB

Reasons to Buy

  • Under the brilliant management of Caroline and Nicolas Drouhin this estate is really hitting the high notes. A couple of years ago Neal Martin commented, “Drouhin-Laroze could rapidly be up there with the very best, alongside the likes of, say, Rousseau or Mortet.”
  • A truly representative Gevrey Chambertin from ten different vineyard plots (Dix Climats!) at just £26.67 per bottle IB.
  • A gorgeous fruit-driven Pinot Noir, packed with dark cherries and wild strawberries, a warming touch of spice and broad ripe tannins.
  • Awarded 89-91 points and described as “Crisp and focused, displaying great clarity on the finish” and “Superb” by Neal Martin.
  • Matthew Jukes called it “serious value for money and also relatively forward. 17 points”.
