Domaine Jean Marechal Bourgogne 2018
Assembled from wine from two different parcels of appellation Bourgogne that are situated in the limits of Mercurey, you could call this a ‘little Mercurey’, the terroir and black fruits so resemble the village appellation. Severe pruning limits the yields (45hl/ha) reinforces the deep Pinot character of the fruit.
Gilles Bouton Bourgogne Rouge 2020
Small production from vines within the commune. A delicate wine with ripe red fruits dominating throughout the tasting experience. Notes of earth emerge and continue into the finish.
Domaine Albert Boillot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019
Pale ruby in color, this is an elegant, delicate expression of Pinot Noir, full of red berry fruit and silky tannins. The limestone adds complexity in the form of fine, chalky tannins.
Chateau Cary-Potet Bourgogne Rouge 2019
A limpid ruby red that catches the light, with raspberry, red currant and even blueberry notes, this is a youthful wine that is easy to drink, full of bursting fruit and discreet tannins.
Julien Cruchandeau Hautes Cotes de Nuits 'Les Cabottes' 2019
Tank raised. 12.5% alcohol. Vineyard in transition: half of it is 60 years old; the other half a new plantation 6 years old. The two parts are fermented separately then assembled in to one cuvee. 2018 gave him lovely phenolic maturity, so he did a slow cold maceration. The result is enormous fruit and a wine accessible now. Beautiful Pinot Noir!
Domaine Felix Bourgogne Cotes d'Auxerre Rouge 2018
Great Pinot fruit with strawberries and blackcurrant. Spicy and mineral. Great balance between fruit and acidity, alive. Makes you salivate.
Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne Rouge 2016
Jean-Jacques Girard's family has been making wine in the Savigny-les Beaune valley for 500 years, so it's not surprising to find that his regional appellation Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a little Savigny. Blackcurrant freshness, a touch of earth subsoil, a supple, easy structure and bull's-eye line on through the whole from the attack to the finish.
Domaine Alain Vignot Bourgogne Cote Saint-Jacques Rouge 2019
This Pinot Noir benefits from the best exposure (south/south east) and excellent terroir. It has a structured nose and balanced attack, with aromas of pure red fruits.
Domaine Marchand Freres Bourgogne Cote dÓr Rouge Cuvee Eline 2018
Burgundian winemakers who have been at it for generations often produce AOC Bourgogne that reminds you of the village wine where the domain is based. It makes sense, really: older domains are likely to have their vineyards circled close to home. This Domaine Marchand Freres Bourgogne fools you at first. We tend now to think of them as being based in Gevrey-Chambertin. But that is fairly recent. The domain’s roots are in Morey-Saint Denis. And when you taste this Bourgogne, that’s what you taste. A little Morey Saint Denis. Remarkable.
Domaine Royet Bourgogne Cotes de Couchois 2019
Bright Ruby color, fresh and intense black fruits, blackberry, cassis. A light toasty wood with the good acid base makes it mouth-watering. Fine, smooth tannins, good length. Aging potential: 5 years
Domaine Michel Rebourgeon Bourgogne Cote d’Or Rouge 2020
Expressive Pinot with both power and fruit: the power of the Pommard terroir with deep ripeness, An amazingly charming nose and a wine that drinks above its appellation.
Domaine Regnaudot Maranges 'Le Saugeot' 2019
This village appellation vineyard overlooks the wonderfully named village of Dezize-les-Maranges which is the home of Domaine Regnaudot. The view from their back garden looks onto these aged vines. Quality is constantly improving in this AOC and here is an excellent example. A typic note of forest floor introduces a fruit profile that is more small red and black wild berries. Both the tannin and acidity is pronounced but not overpowering. A really nice food wine and a perfect introduction to this producers Premier Cru.
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.
