CAPITAIN GAGNEROT 2019 MIXED CASE
Calling all Capitian-Gagnerot lovers! A mixed case of 2019 WHITE burgundy. Ground Shipping Included:
Capitain Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Les Grechons et Foutrieres' 2019 (6 bottles)
The Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru Grechons is very much an insider's wine. It's sold almost exclusively in the region (or to those who know Capitain well). Year upon year we have tasted the new Grechons at the same time that we taste the latest Capitain Corton Charlemagne, often standing in the freezing cold when the barrels have been taken outside to cold-precipitate the tartaric acids. The number of times we have mistaken the Grechons for the Charlemagne cannot be just chance! There is a similarity in the minerality, with that Corton Mountain limestone smokiness unlain with honey and white flowers.
Capitain Gagnerot Aloxe Corton 1er Cru 'La Coutière' 2019 (3 bottles)
The world's only white Aloxe-Corton premier cru! Clear white gold, with notes of fern, apple and honey. Great freshness, pretty mineral nuances. Elegante and classy white Burgundy!
Capitain-Gagnerot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2019 (3 bottles)
The soil in the heart of Corton-Charlemagne give a unique minerality to one of the great white wines of the world. Smoky and honeyed at the same time with notes of honysuckle and lemongrass, Charlemagne has the structure and balance for aging. We assisted at a tasting some years ago, put on by the Grands Jours de Bourgogne, that featured every single producer of Corton-Charlemagne. That's right. How they organized that, we can't say. But it was, as you might imagine, memorable. And there amidst all the big names was the Capitain Corton-Charlemagne. They don't go in for hype and publicity much at Capitain-Gagnerot. But there in a hall with all of their peers, you could feel their pride and the confidence in their wine.
