Those of you who have been with us since the beginning know that the Elden palate was formed in the cellars of Capitain-Gagnerot 35 years ago

And we have tasted and presented every vintage of these two wines ever since. They are, among all others, our benchmark for Red Burgundy.

Read about the 2022 Vintage

Here's a 6 bottle pack, 3 bottles of each

Ladoix 1er Cru 'La Micaude' 2022
A 'monople', meaning they own the entire 4 acres of vines themselves. This is and has been for nearly 30 years, our benchmark Pinot Noir. Roger Capitain used this wine to show us that if you are looking for color in Pinot Noir, you are asking the wrong question.  He showed us here that a wine can be delicate and powerful at the same time, And he showed us that pretty little red fruits can age as well (and usually better) than concentrated extracted fruit bombs.  Racy and well-structured, 'La Micaude' is at the same time discreet with delicate black berry fruits. It's one of those wine that will surprise you as it ages, growing in elegance and nuance with each passing year.

Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru 'Les Moutottes' 2022
Belonged to the Capitain family for generations. The vines were 67 years old (in 2013), planted in classic Aloxe-Corton oxforian limestone making 'Les Moutottes' structured, muscular and dense, with great black fruit and overall charm. Elegance and power, that describes Aloxe-Corton in general, but 'Les Moutottes' has something more. It has that Capitain finesse that is like a signature. All Capitain reds see only 10% new oak, the better to conserve their fruit and diverse terroirs. We say it again, Capitain-Gagnerot is our benchmark Pinot.
