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 Jean Marechal Mercurey Vieilles Vignes 2018
Assembled from three separate parcels in appellation Mercurey. Open and juicy cherry fruit, a little touch of leather in its backbone. Balanced fruit and acid, mouthwatering and fresh. Lovely long finish all in fruit.
Domaine Germain Pere et Fils Saint Romain 'Sous Le Chateau' 2017
This Saint Romain red is from perhaps the best-known vineyard in the appellation: Sous le Chateau’. And with one taste you will understand its justified reputation. Here’s a Pinot that is startlingly charming in its youth. Fresh, clean and delicious. Round, not a hint of green. Full, juicy fruit explodes with youthful acidity. What a mouthful. And then, there, behind all this immediate pleasure, comes a structure which tells you that you want to save a few bottles of this for the future. But that might be hard to do, given the way it’s drinking today.
Domaine Pierre Naigeon Bourgogne 'Maladieres' 2018
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.
