Here’s a 12-bottle mixed case, 2 bottles each of 6 different Burgundy wines. At some of the lowest prices we have ever offered. Includes 2 bottles of each -- GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED
Domaine Albert Boillot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018
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.
Jean Jacques Girard Bourgogne Rouge 2017
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.
Michel Arcelain Bourgogne Rouge 2016
This Bourgogne will stop you in your tracks. Like so many regional appellation wines from small, proud production domains, the grapes for this wine come from a vineyard in the village where the producer lives and work. In this case…it’s Pommard. This is no big-volume blend Bourgogne like you get from the negociant houses. No, you’ll swear that this is a little Pommard. And that’s how it should be!
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Blanc 2018
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.
Agnes Paquet Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018
Raised partly in steel with a small percentage of oak, this Chardonnay from strong limestone soils in the Hautes Cotes is crunchy, like biting in to the grape bunch, with fantastic freshness and good acidity on the finish. Mineral and pure.
Château de Vergisson Saint Veran 2019
Bottled in March 2018, this wine is pure pleasure. Raised in stainless steel tanks, it’s pure, open, fresh, with a noseful of rich, ripe fruit that snaps with mineralty, and a mouthful of freshness that’s like biting into the grape bunch. Charming every-day drinking Burgundy!
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.
