Potinet-Ampeau Monthelie 1er Cru 'Champs Fulliots' 2016
Monthelie is one of the great bargains in Burgundy. But be careful: there are two parts to Monthelie. With the exception of the first growth 'Les Duresses' (which is an extension of Auxey-Duresses' best parcel) in the west, most of the best vineyards are clustered on the border with Volnay to the east of the village. No surprise. But there really are some great undiscovered gems there. This Monthelie 1er Cru 'Champs-Fulliots' from the Domaine Potinet-Ampeau among them. Dense, generous, spicy fruit, both red and black, with good concentration and structure. And a very Volnay finish on violets!
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' 2014
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.
Gilles Bouton Chassagne Montrachet 'Concis du Champs' 2019
Chassagne-Montrachet has fantastic terroir for both white and red Burgundy and this village AOC reflects this. Ripe red fruit profile with some pomegranate juice, pepper, smoke and ripe leaf. The firm acidity hold all the elements in balance.
Jean-Jacques Girard Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos du Roi' 2019
Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos du Roi' is, as the name suggests, one of the best parcels in the hills above Beaune. Beaunes can have the spice of Savigny, so the style plays well into Jean-Jacques Girard's hands, but the Clos du Roi has the oomph of the Corton mountain. Red fruit ans spice, great building intensity, round, fleshy and persistent, It's a fist in a velvet glove.
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.
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.
