REDS
Domaine Borgeot Chassagne 1er Cru 'Clos St. Jean' 2018

The Clos St Jean lies toward the northern end of Chassagne-Montrachet, close to St Aubin, and borders a limestone quarry. For years we have insisted that it makes is one of the great red wines of the cote de Beaune, despite the modern trends to re-plant it with Chardonnay. And therein lies a tale. Years ago when the Borgeots wanted to take their production up a notch, they took on a partner and set up a small negociant house. One of the conditions of the deal was that they had to rip up their prized Clos St Jean red and replant it in white...which of course commands a higher price. The brothers were gutted because they knew what a great red parcel the Clos St Jean is. But they did it...and regretted it for years. But once they were really up and running, they got hold of another piece of Clos St Jean planted in Pinot Noir. These guys are true to their heritage and close to the earth. And it shows in everything they do!

Domaine Borgeot Santenay Vieilles Vignes 2018
Year in, year out, this Borgeot Santenay 'Vieilles Vignes' (which translates as ‘Old Vines’ is one of our favorites. This term holds no official age requirement however in this case the vines were actually planted by Pascals grandfather!! We've been drinking this wine consistently since we first met Pascal Borgeot back in 1989. The first Borgeot wine we tasted was his Santenay VV in the 1985 vintage. It was beautiful even in its youth, and we drank it lustily. Have done ever since. Pascal surprised us a few years back with a secret stash of the 1985, and we re-lived our youth in a glass. This is our image of Pinot Noir from the Cotes de Beaune. It ranks as one of the best deals in Red Burgundy on this site...which explains why it is always among the first to sell out.

Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravieres' 2019
Not surprisingly, this Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' red comes from the same vineyard as their Santenay 1er 'Gravieres' white, just further down the slope where the soil becomes denser and red. ‘Gravieres’ is one vineyard with two different soil types, apt for two different wines. Sadly, many producers have succumbed to the temptation of the bottom line, and have replanted Chardonnay where there should be Pinot Noir. But not the Borgeots! Their 'Gravieres' red is their signature Pinot, with ripe dark fruits tinged with chocolate and coffee, rich, powerful and fat right through the lingering note of pure blackberry.

Domaine Borgeot Chassagne Montrachet 'Vieilles Vignes' 2019
This village level vineyard dates back to the Cistercian monks. The name referencing the grounds of their 'Abbaye de Morgeot' Both white and red is produced here and the vineyard can also be referred as 'Vielles Vignes’. If you do not know Chassagne Montrachet red, you are missing one of the great pleasures of Pinot in Burgundy. This lieu dit 'Champs de Morgeot' is lush and spicy, with a totally different spin on the Pinot Noir from further north in Volnay and Pommard.  Luscious and juicy, in the hands of the Borgeot brothers this is a gem of a Pinot, with great structure and density infused with black fruits

Domaine Borgeot Bourgogne Rouge 2019
Domaine Borgeot Bourgogne Rouge is one wine that is always in our cellar. In fact, it's our 'house red'! This is one of the paradigms of what we call 'everyday drinking Burgundy'. Classic youthful Burgundy Pinot Noir with blackberries and strawberries and that earthiness that keeps you coming back. It is as we claim: you can drink Burgundy every day. This one should be in your cellar too. Pull it out, guilt free and often!

WHITES
Domaine Borgeot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru 'Clos St Jean' 2016

From one of the best Chassagne-Montrachet white premier cru vineyards, sitting right below the village quarry, this ‘Clos St Jean leads with its sublime minerality.  Bright gold in color.  Youthful  exotic fruit going towards grilled almonds. Elegant and well-balanced. Great long finished carrier through by the mineralty.

Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2018
Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravieres' can be either red or white. 'Gravieres' implies gravel, loose stony soil. And the upper part of the vineyard is such. This is excellent soil for Chardonnay, with one of the best expositions in the southern Cote d'Or. Distinctive 'Borgeot' style, mineral driven, with both ripe citrus and slight stone fruit profile, there is a smokey quality that leads into hazelnut and honey. The rocky terroir is evident in the long clean finish. Great value Premier Cru White.

Domaine Borgeot Puligny-Montrachet ' Vieilles Vignes' 2017
The ‘Golden triangle’ of great white Burgundy is Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and, arguably the most distinctive of the three, Puligny-Montrachet. This 'old vine' village appellation wine displays great finesse and elegance.  Pure and bright, with glints of white gold. Orchard blossoms and peaches make the bouquet.  Silky and long, ending on both flowers and fruit. A great example of both Domaine Borgeot and Puligny-Montrachet.

Domaine Borgeot Chassagne-Montrachet 'Vieilles Vignes' 2018
The Domaine Borgeot makes one of the purest and most consistent styles in Chassagne-Montrachet today. This village Chassagne comes from 50 year old vines, and it's fat. But by no means flabby. With orange flower richness and dusty minerality and good acidity to hold it all in suspension, this wine (as is often the case with Borgeot wines) drinks way above its appellation. There is a spiciness that almost reminds you of muscat, but the structure says Borgeot.

Domaine Borgeot Bourgogne Blanc 'Clos de la Carbonade' 2018
This single-vineyard Bourgogne 'Clos de la Carbonade' is wholly owned by the Borgeots.  And the wine they make there is the greatest surprise on our list. It's a small parcel, located in the village of Bouzeron, the northernmost village of the Cote Chalonnaise. But don't be fooled by its modest pedigree: the 'Clos de la Carbonade' has something special about it. And year after year we see remarkable wines that far outshine appellations much grander than Bourgogne. The Borgeot's can't explain it...yet. But there is a geological study underway to see what makes this parcel tick.

Domaine Borgeot Bouzeron 'Les Tournelles' 2018
Bouzeron is a village within the Cote Chalonnaise and is permitted to make wine with the second white Burgundy grape ‘Aligoté’. This wine is floral and fresh, with green apple acidity and body.  Minerality picks up the acidity and carries it to a long finish. Elegant expression of aligoté doré from a single vineyard. Great aperitif wine, but has what it takes to age.
