DOMAINE DESUREMAIN 2018 MIXED CASE
PRE-SALE TO SHIP JULY 2022
Biodynamic excellence from one of the lesser-known Burgundy Appellations, Eric Desuremain and his Classy Monthelie Reds will change the way you think about Burgundy. It's been almost a year since we have been able to offer the wines of Eric Desuremain, one of the legends of biodynamic production in Burgundy.
But they will soon be in our Elden selections US cellars once again.
And, as always, I will give you first dibs on these wines before they are introduced to the general public.
The vintage is the sublime 2018
The wines are both Red Premier Cru
I have only 10 cases of each
So here's a mixed 12 bottle case, 6 bottle of each of:
Domaine De Suremain Monthelie 1er cru 'Le Clou des Chenes' 2018
Of the two De Suremain Monthelie 1er Cru, this ‘Clou des Chenes’ would be the one to lay down. You immediately sense the structure: the vanilla and black pepper; the tender tannins, integrated but present. And then you get the fruit, frank, foursquare and generous. You can go for the immediate pleasure, but better to wait a few years to get the full show.
Domaine De Suremain Rully 1er Cru 'Preaux' 2018
This premier cru Rully from the Cote Chalonnaise throws out a range of complexity from red currant acidity to black cherry suavity. A touch of rusticity in the tannins brings out a freshness and vivacity that makes this wine approachable now, and that will make it magnificent in 4-5 years’ time.
