besides Jane Eyre 2019 Burgundy Lunch @ Hero ACMI,

no worries - you might also like to consider a bottle of Hoddles Creek Estate 2019 ($21.99 @ myCellars - pm me for free delivery code), which is often considered the best value pinot around
2020 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir - GW93+ - $22.99 @ myCellars

now $34 @ Langton's - 7 left - one of the best grenaches that i've had:

I am often suspicious of cheap direct imports but the burghound and Jasper Morris scores are both very good!

2016 Chanson Pere et Fils Beaune 1er cru Clos des Marconnets $64.99 @ The Wine Collective (select offer in cart to apply discounted price)

Seems too good to be true especially given how miserly TWC normally are with their deals. All the scores stack up. I’ve bought a 6 pack

These crus were the source of our highest-rated wines, all three rating 97 points. These are not only extremely impressive wines, but also strikingly different in character and style. The Château des Bachelards – Comtesse de Vazeilles Fleurie Le Clos 2018 is super-silky and refined the Domaine Anita Moulin-à-Vent La Rochelle 2019 concentrated and plush and the Yohan Lardy Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes de 1903 2019 enormously deep with a striking smoked bacon character.
For us this diversity is the sure sign of a maturing wine region and it was also clearly present in the eight wines wines that rated 96 points. For example, the incredibly floral expressiveness of the Château Thivin Côte-de-Brouilly Cuvée Zaccharie 2019 and the densely structured Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py 2019 are both great reds unlike anything else on Planet Wine.
The twin great vintages of 2018 and 2019 showcase this beautifully. 2019 is probably the most consistently exciting vintage for Beaujolais since 1976, although we still have a soft spot for 2015. These wines have the classic lively acidity and vibrant aromas of the region’s reds from the indigenous gamay grape with lots of floral, spice and licorice notes. The 2018 vintage was the warmest growing season on record and mildew in June-July dramatically reduced crop levels. The best 2018s are powerful and concentrated with fine tannins and enough acidity to balance. Some vineyards experienced drought stress and/or were picked a bit too late resulting in atypically soft wines.

Have you had this before? Keen to hear views of those that have. Thanks

No I haven’t but this is a very reputable, large scale producer and 16 is a highly thought of vintage, cold and with small concentrated yields. Beaune 1er Cru is typically cheaper than the other red regions in the Cote de Nuits but even still, $65 a bottle ( less of you order five for free delivery and include 8.8% CR) is as good a price as you’ll get for this in Australia (it’s a decent price for the European market outside of France) The scores are also very good and there’s plenty of them too for corroboration. This wine was $100 a bottle on Langton’s recently and is now sold out.

Yep, I’ve ordered two for $59 each after cashback.
Normally I’d avoid unfamiliar French wines but this one looks promising and the price seems fair.

the only reason to smell a rat would be that TWC never ever tend to have good deals....if this is as good as it should be then this will be a really good price.
