Overview

Biodynamic is similar to organic farming in that both take place without synthetic chemicals, but biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an entire ecosystem, and also takes into account things such as astrological influences and lunar cycles. A biodynamic wine means that the grapes are farmed biodynamically, and that the winemaker did not make the wine with any common manipulations such as yeast additions or acidity adjustments.

This is a lovely mixed selection of 6 Reds and 6 Whites from Biodynamic producers in Burgundy with GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED.

REDS
Domaine De Suremain Monthelie 1er cru 'Le Clou des Chenes' 2018

Of the two De Suremain Monthelie 1er Cru 2015, 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 Pierre Naigeon Bourgogne 'Maladieres' 2019
You would never take this for an appellation bourgogne. In fact, eyes closed, it's a little Chambolle-Musigny. This single-vineyard Bourgogne drinks way above its appellation and is so precise you can tell where it comes from. Floral, deep, with the freshness of youth and soft tannins.  Superlative appellation Bourgogne.

Jean Claude Rateau Beaune 'Prevoles 2017
Floral, round and structures, dense and full with great tension and a long long finish on the fruit.

Gabin and Felix Richoux Irancy 'Veaupessiot' 2018
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.

Richard Rottiers Cru de Beaujolais Moulin a Vent 2020
Richard Rottiers has winemaking in his blood. He is is from Chablis, not from the Beaujolais. But he specifically searched out prime vines in Moulin-a-Vent because he knows the potential there. Yields in Moulin-a-Vent are always naturally low, making this the most powerful, concentrated and long-lived of the Beaujolais cru. In fact, an older Moulin can easily be mistaken for a Pinot Noir from the Cotes de Nuits. Here we have pure gamay fruits, black and mineral, with the distictive Moulin-a-Vent lingering violets, Six months in 'foudre' (large oak barrels) give the wine structure, finesse and fullness.

Domaine Pierre Thibert Nuits St Georges 1er Cru 'Rue De Chaux’ 2020
As you might expect, this young Nuits-St. Georges Premier Cru is full and earthy with a good tannic structure. The vintage brings good acidity which makes the fruit lively and juicy, like biting into a bunch of grapes. There's a floral undertone, and lots of blackcurrant fruit in there. Young and full of promise.

WHITES
Capitain Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Les Grechons et Foutrieres' 2022
The Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru Grechons is very much an insider's wine. It's sold almost exclusively in the region (or to those who know Capitain well). Year upon year we have tasted the new Grechons at the same time that we taste the latest Capitain Corton Charlemagne, often standing in the freezing cold when the barrels have been taken outside to cold-precipitate the tartaric acids. The number of times we have mistaken the Grechons for the Charlemagne cannot be just chance! There is a similarity in the minerality, with that Corton Mountain limestone smokiness unlain with honey and white flowers.

Domaine Jean Fery Pernand-Vergelesses 'Les Combottes' 2021
Pernand 'Les Combottes' lies in a heat trap above and behind the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. In a sense it is the last vineyard in the line leading off of Corton-Charlemagne, which explains why you often see this village appellation bottled as a single vineyard lieu-dit. The Domaine Jean Fery has its roots in Echevronne, just above the village of Pernand-Vergelesses, so this is, in a sense, their signature white. Floral and mineral, uniquely Pernand, there's a freshness and a purity that is fleshy and fruity but well-cut and firm.

Marchand-Tawse Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Vergelesses' Blanc 2021
Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Vergelesses’ sits, you guessed it, in the northeast part of Savigny where the valley butts up to the Pernand-Vergelesses premier cru  vineyard of the same name. It’s a bit confusing, especially when you add in another premier cru called ‘Ile des Vergelesses which, you guessed it again, sits in the middle of the other two. Steep, south-facing limestone soil with a very chalky make up yields wine of complex minerality and freshness. 25% new oak lets the fruit and flowers sing.

Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Vaillons’ 2018
This Chablis 1er Cru ‘Vaillons’ is remarkable for its limpidity; it catches light and reflects it like a jewel. Vigorous and full, this is a big wine with fat decadent spicy fruit and deep lingering minerality. Balanced and precise from the attack, through the mid-palate to the long finish, this is a very well-made wine.

Domaine Oudin Chablis 1er Cru 'Vaucoupins' 2022
The uppermost right bank premier cru, situated between Fley and Chichée, and the next valley over from the premier cru Mont de Milieu, this Oudin Vaucoupin is ripe and fresh, subtle with a touch of salt. Lively and powerful, yet controlled enough to allow the minerality and purity to sing.

Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Blanc 2021
From parcels around Savigny-les Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, this is a cuvee designed to show Pascal Marchand’s vision of Chardonnay. Floral, with that Corton Mountain minerality, great acidity that makes it mouth-wateringly juicy and open. It’s ready. A lovely image of white from the middle reaches of the Cote d’Or.

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.
