Discover the Burgundian Terroir that is benefiting most from climate change'.
There is fantastic value if you learn where and why the quality level is changing in Burgundy, the last classification was 1935/1936, so naturally there have been changes to the environment, not yet recognised on the label. There is a recent Burgundian quote that 'Quality is climbing the hill'.
Includes 2 bottles of each
Domaine Jean-Féry Côtes-de-Nuits-Villages 'Clos de Magny' 2019
It is as accessible as it is amiable, honest and straightforward in taste. The red, which has the gleaming crimson highlights of the Pinot grape, veers sometimes towards an intense garnet hue or, when young, a bright cherry. Its aromas run a classic spectrum through cherry, gooseberry and blackcurrant to notes of underbrush, mushroom and spices (cinnamon). This is a big-hearted wine, powerful in the mouth, full and meaty, and its tannins (more conspicuously present in the younger wines) are well smoothed-down. Ruby red with fresh fruit cherry and black currant dominant. Spicy, with good structure and fine tannins. An elegant wine drinking way above its appellation.
Domaine Julien Cruchandeau Hautes-Côtes de Nuits 'Valencons' 2018
This single vineyard wine comes from a steep slope with not much limestone and clay soil. So expect a bigger structure than the Cabottes. 10% new wood, and another 10% of older barrels. Fresh open, soft black cherry fruit, earthy and mineral. The result of some whole cluster maceration. Earth, juicy, chocolaty, great volume. Exuberant!
Domaine Felix Côte d'Auxerre Blanc 2019
Fresh and fruity on the nose with notes of peach and spice. Just a hint of oak. Lively, balanced with good minerality and length.
