Six incredible White Burgundies - includes 2 bottles of each PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED:
Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Fourchaume’ 2017
Fourchaume is the best known of the Chablis premier crus, perhaps because it is an extension of the Grand Cru vineyards, and benefits from a similar Right Bank exposition. Round, mature fruit, crystalline purity, sweet, lemony acidity classic cool river rock minerality. A classic Chablis premier cru.
Domaine Jean Fery Bourgogne ‘Les Montatines’ Blanc 2017
Pure deep fruit, rounded with just enough oak to make your mouth water. Floral and citric, but mouth-filling and long.
Chateau de Vergisson Pouilly-Fuisse 2018
These are vines from Stephanie’s part of the valley, assembled from several parcels from the base of the rock at Solutré. This is classic Pouilly-Fuisse. Pure gold, with lemon-drop fruit, a touch of tannin to give it structure, and lovely acidity. So round and balanced, you want to chew it.
Agnes Paquet Auxey-Duresses Blanc 'Patience No 10' 2017
Agnes uses 350 liter barrels (30% new) for this exceptional Auxey cuvee, which is only made in years that she thinks it propitious. The wine spends 12 months in the wood, then 4 months in steel to sharpen the focus. This is a serious food wine, voluptuous and rich, with deep fruit and great structure. Drinks way above its appellation!
Domaine Jean Fery Pernand-Vergelesses 'Les Combottes' 2018
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.
Domaine Germain Pere et Fils Saint Romain Blanc 2018
With admirable yields (45hl/ha), this Saint Romain white is taken seriously right from the start. Add 30% new oak and 8-9 months of aging and batonnage, and you get a very classy Chardonnay with the unique and superbly subtle Saint Romain minerality, full, rich and dense, with elegant floral notes, good acidity in its youthful charm. We found this wine on a restaurant list in Santenay and were so impressed we went the next day and became friends with the producers.
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.
