Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Peuillets' 2018
One thing is certain, Jean-Jacques Girard knows Savigny les Beaune Every angled hillside, every rivulet, every cut in the rock, where the sun shines and where the dew settles. Me makes several different Savignys and a horizontal tasting in Jean-Jacques' cellars is a master class in the appellation. This Savigny-les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Peuillets' is supple and lacy, with spicy almost explosive black and red currant fruit. There's an intensity that makes the young fruit charming, but which really shows the structure for aging.
Michel Arcelain Pommard 2012
Intense aromas of blackberry, black currant, cherries and licorice. A fist in a velvet glove, fine but dense; more structured than you sense at first. Warm and round and long. We have allowed this wine to cellar age for nearly 10 years, enjoy the tertiary elements of Pinot Noir to express themselves in the wine.
Domaine Albert Boillet Pommard 1er Cru 'En Largilliere' 2017
Situated above the ‘Grands Epenots’, ‘En Largilliers’ is a relatively unknown premier cru. It sits between ‘Charmots’ and Pezerolles’, and just below ‘Noizons’, so it has pedigree! As its name implies, it has a high content of clay, meaning that produces deep, tight, earthy wines. The 2016 is expressive, with superlative round fruit that engulfs the palate, with just a touch of earth and smoke so you know it's a Pommard. Deep, long finish. A wine you can enjoy now, but which will reward any patience you might have.
Chateau Cary Potet Montagny 1er Cru 'Les Burnins' 2017
From the southern reaches of the Cote Chalonnaise, the wines of Montagny are among the best value in White Burgundy. With a unique and dusty minerality that many compare to a suave left-bank Chablis, the wines also profit from their southern position, so ripeness and maturity yield seductive and charming Chardonnay. This premier cru ‘Les Burnins’ has a mineral attack with orange blosson floral notes and spicy round fruit. Rich and smoky, with green apple acidity and a touch of butter. Good long finish carried by the minerality.
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.
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.
