  1. Epis Pinot Noir 2015

    Legendary Australian Rules Footballer Alec Epis spends most of his days now on his tractor tending his vines high up in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria. The quality of the fruit he grows is borne out in the exceptional wines that come from his vineyards. Alec writes, "After being in French oak barrels for 18 months this wine is now starting to show some complexity. The palate is rich, well structured almost silky and opulent. Balanced fruit, acid and tannins gives this wine all the ingredients to develop into a fine wine. Just remember cool climate wines always need time but in the end you will be well rewarded." Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, 95 Points - "Epis Pinot Noir, right in the zone. 18 months in French oak and of course, from a single small vineyard.First sip and I was hooked. This has the kind of perfume, satiny texture and undergrowthy complexity that really sets the pinot-lover’s heart racing. It’s one of those forget-the-price-I-want-me-some wines. Boysenberry and fresh red cherry, five-spice, twigs, earth and red roses. It’s pretty, it’s sordid, it’s fruity, it’s earthen. It’s more accessible than Epis usually is young but it will yet age beautifully over the medium term, if not longer."

  2. Corofin Settlement Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

    94 points, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au - "Tasted quickly at Pinot Noir 2017. I believe the Settlement Vineyard is part of Dog Point's estate. Chocolate, strawberries and spice, mint and aromatic herbs. Medium bodied, fleshy and ample, with that choc-strawberry deliciousness, supple tannin, and plump fruit on a spice and herb laced finish. Yum."

  3. Corofin Churton Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

    93+ Points - Gary Walsh, Wine Front - "Cherry, pepper, chocolate and black olive rolled in herbs. Medium bodied, fulsome chalky tannin leads, drying, with richness of fruit to follow. Finish is deeply tannic, but the wine has a resonance that suggests it may do well with bottle age."

  4. Corofin Cowley Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

    Mike Paterson's notes: "Picked on the cusp (maybe early?) black and deep, but fresh, vibrant less broody than previous. Older vines, balanced, nestled lower on the main slopes have issued a structured, ripe but precise expression. Textural with front-to-back tannin."

  9. Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Clos Du Chateau Des Ducs 1er Cru Monopole 2014

    Www.burghound.com - Score: 91-93, Tasted: Apr 15, 2016, Drink: 2026+Note: from 50+ year old vines; a monopole of the domaineTasting note: The more deeply pitched though still strikingly elegant nose features notes of pure and enticing essence of dark berries along with plenty of earth and floral-related nuances. There is an almost pungent minerality to the sleekly muscular yet refined medium weight flavors that possess excellent punch and delineation before culminating in a mildly austere and highly persistent finish. A classy effort that should amply reward mid-term cellaring.Domaine Michel Lafarge – Vintage Notes from www.burghound.comMichel Lafarge, and his son Frédéric, called 2014 a vintage where a "dry and warm spring jumpstarted the vegetative cycle. Thankfully we had a copious fruit set and fine flowering because the June 28th hail storm would have otherwise been even more devastating. Our worst hit parcels were the Pézerolles and the Clos des Aigrots and then the lower lying parcels in Volnay. It was quite frankly incredibly depressing, particularly since it was the third year in a row where the vines were savaged by hail. Moreover it was a huge amount of work to help the vines find some way to overcome the stress and to bring what little fruit remained, to reasonably good ripeness levels. July and the first half of August didn't really help matters much but at least there really wasn't much in the way of disease pressure. Happily conditions improved considerably after the 15th of August and you could sense that the vines recaptured their energy. Then the week before the harvest, the forecasters announced the possibility of storms between the 10th and the 12th of September and we had to decide to pick on the earlier side even though the fruit wasn't quite ripe enough or wait in the hopes of higher ripeness levels but at the risk of perhaps losing even more quantity. It wasn't an easy decision but we elected to wait and didn't start picking until the 17th of September. As it turns out it was a good decision because there were no storms and we obtained the maturity levels that we were hoping for plus the fruit was very clean so that helped as well. We did our normal vinification as there was no reason not to and at this stage the wines have begun to show extremely well. They remind us of the style of either 1966 or 1978." Note that as was the case in 2012 and 2013 there is no Volnay "1er Cru", Côte de Beaune-Villages or Pommard "Pézerolles".

  10. Domaine Michel Lafarge Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

    Www.burghound.com Score: 86-89, Tasted: Apr 15, 2016, Drink: 2019+Rated: Outstanding - Top valueNote: from 40+ year old vines in Petit Pré that were once classified as Volnay villagesTasting note: A fresh and relatively elegant nose consists of red currant, earth and an interesting hint of anise. There is once again a lovely sense of energy to the detailed and utterly delicious flavors that are shaped by an already well-integrated tannic spine on the balanced and lingering finish. This should make for a lovely Bourgogne if given a few years of bottle age. Domaine Michel Lafarge – Vintage Notes from www.burghound.comMichel Lafarge, and his son Frédéric, called 2014 a vintage where a "dry and warm spring jumpstarted the vegetative cycle.
