REDS
Capitain-Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'La Micaude' 2019 - 1 bottle
The Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru 'La Micaude' is a 'monople', meaning they own the entire 4 acres of vines themselves. This is and has been for nearly 30 years, our benchmark Pinot Noir. Roger Capitain used this wine to show us that if you are looking for color in Pinot Noir, you are asking the wrong question.  He showed us here that a wine can be delicate and powerful at the same time, And he showed us that pretty little red fruits can age as well (and usually better) than concentrated extracted fruit bombs.  Racy and well-structured, 'La Micaude' is at the same time discreet with delicate black berry fruits. It's one of those wine that will surprise you as it ages, growing in elegance and nuance with each passing year.

Gabin and Felix Richoux Irancy 'Veaupessiot' 2012 - 2 bottles
This is Pinot Noir in a style all its own, with delicate cherry fruit and brooding minerality. This single vineyard 'Veaupessiot' sits on a point over looking the river valley with perfect exposition. Gabin and Felix Richoux holds back their wines until they feel they have developed enough.

Domaine Jean Fery Vosne-Romanee 'aux Reas' 2016 - 2 bottles
For many, Vosne Romanee makes the ultimate in Pinot Noir. This wonderful 2018 Jean Fery single-vineyard Vosne-Romanee 'Aux Reas' is a beautiful garnat that exudes fruit as intense as its color and flavors as deep and dense as the ensemble suggests, firm and fresh and long.  A great vintage and a great wine.  'Harmony' is a word that springs to mind. 


WHITES
Capitain-Gagnerot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 - 1 bottle
Corton is the only Grand Cru red in the Cote de Beaune. But it covers a lot of the Corton hillside, and hence there are many different faces to Corton. With mid-slope position and due east exposure, this Corton Grandes Lolieres Grand Cru is the last Corton vineyard before Ladoix, and sits just outside the Capitain's back door. The vines date from 1950, and give wines that are solidly framed with a potential for long aging. Rich, balanced, powerful and elegant, these are all traits you expect in a well-made grand cru. Curiously, the Corton Grandes Lolieres is contiguous to both the Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru ‘Bois Roussot’ and their Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru ‘Les Moutottes. So here is a chance to taste 3 appellations from the same producer from vineyards that share a common border! Burgundy can be beautiful that way.

Julien Cruchandeau Hautes Cotes de Nuits Blanc 2018 - 2 bottles
Very low yields for the appellation (30hl/ha).  Raised in 50% steel tank and 50% wood (with 10% new oak in the mix). Orange flower and honey, rich but fresh and open.  Long pleasant floral finish.

Jean-Baptiste Ponsot Rully 1er Cru ‘Montpalais’ 2018 - 2 bottles
Gun-flint smoky minerality drives this ripe, old-vine fruit and elegant white flower complexity to great lengths.  Extremely long finish, and the hallmark tension, even in old vine depth. Aging 12 months in barrels (20% of new oak barrels) and 3 months of assembly in mass.

SPARKLING
Pierre Brigandat Champagne Brut Tradition - 1 bottle
Firstly, this is a well-made wine, then, the character of a second fermentation adds complexity.  Light golden hue and persistent effervescence gives you a hint of what to expect.

Louis Picamelot Cremant de Bourgogne Rose 2018 - 1 bottle
Dynamic, with necklace of bubbles, the pink color is soft and intense, round but brisk. Carried by the delicacy of its bubbles, this Crémant wine hints at wild strawberry aromas and offers a seductive fullness. Ideal as an aperitif, it will also be a great match with your summer grilled food and your fruit desserts.

Note: These wines are sourced from small producers, and so quantities are very limited. If ever we run out of a particular wine, we will substitute a wine of equal or greater value.
