There’s been a swag of wines from our most respected cult producers arriving in the shop of late, so here’s just a few of our favourite things from the Mosel’s Joh Jos Prüm, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey from the Côtes de Beaune and Domaine Tempier in sunny Bandol. Quantities are varied so please send us your wish list and we’ll do our best to honour them.
Also, don’t hesitate to ask us about releases from another two stars from burgundy in Frederic Cossard (Domaine de Chassorney) and Michel Lafarge.
Joh Jos Prüm, Mosel
There’s incredible hype surrounding the 2015 vintage in the Mosel, some boldly labelling it the best since 1971! In our opinion, a true indication of its calibre can be found in the wines of Joh Jos Prüm, the most revered estate of the Mosel.
Katherina Prüm describes… “the vintage’s charm, with fine fruit aromas and flavours, paired with its refreshing acidity, impressed us quite remarkably. The latter is particularly noteworthy: After the hot weeks in mid-summer we had expected more moderate acidity levels – and must weights rocketing more upwards than they finally did. How blessed were we not only to harvest the top Prädikate but the “full range” from Kabinett to TBA.”
To kick off with we have Kabinett-Auslese levels available, the Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese will be released later in the year.

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Saint-Aubin
With reverence amongst the staff here at CWS, this humble and unassuming character has a deft touch, producing detailed and mineral expressions of chardonnay that are at the very top of our wish lists. We recently had the great pleasure of hosting Pierre-Yves and his wife Caroline at the Melbourne leg of the Burgundy Celebration 2017 and hot on the heels of their visit is the first release of Pierre-Yves’ 2015 wines hitting our shores. Featuring bottlings from his native Saint-Aubin these wines attract high demand and are in short supply, so we’re pleased to offer the following.

2015 Saint-Aubin Les Perrieres 1er Cru $128 Extremely Limited

Domaine Tempier, Bandol
Without doubt the most esteemed estate in Bandol, our allocation of Domaine Tempier wines is always eagerly anticipated. We were fortunate to receive a trickle of the Blanc and a re-stock of the Rosé, both from 2015 as well as the immediately charming ’14 Cuvée Classique.
Long time close friend of the Peyraud family, Kermit Lynch summed it up best in his must-read book Adventures on the Wine Route, published in 1988… “Domaine Tempier is a place in Provence, a home with its winery and vineyards, its olive trees and cypresses. It is home to a large joyful Provençal family… there is a certain vital spirit that one imbibes with each gorgeous swallow of Domaine Tempier wine.”
2015 Tempier Blanc $64 Extremely Limited
2015 Tempier Rosé $64
2014 Tempier Cuvée Classique $74
