Gilles Bouton Saint Aubin 1er Cru 'en Creot' 2018
Garnet robe with bright fruits, raspberry, black currant, black cherry, seasoned with spice and coffee. Full bodied but silky with a lively fruit finish.
Domaine Elodie Roy Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2019
This Santenay 1er cru Les Gravières offers aromas of cassis, plums, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy, elegant and muscular, it's a deep and concentrated wine
Domaine Jean Marechal Mercurey 1er Cru Champs Martin 2019
Finesse from first nose to finish. Mineral, charcoal and fresh black cherry. Great balance, lovely acidity carries the fruit in an unbroken line through the mid-palate to an elegant full finish.
Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2019
Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravieres' can be either red or white. 'Gravieres' implies gravel, loose stony soil. And the upper part of the vineyard is such. This is excellent soil for Chardonnay, with one of the best expositions in the southern Cote d'Or. Distinctive 'Borgeot' style, mineral driven, with both ripe citrus and slight stone fruit profile, there is a smokey quality that leads into hazelnut and honey. The rocky terroir is evident in the long clean finish. Great value Premier Cru White.
Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils Chablis 1er Cru ‘Fourchaume’ 2018
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 Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Vergelesses' Blanc 2018
Yes, we admit, it can be complicated! There is this WHITE Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Vergelesses', but the domain also makes both a red Savigny-les Beaune 1er Cru and a red Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru ‘Les Vergelesses’ as well. To make things even more complicated, the Pernand 'Vergelesses' and the two Savigny 'Vergelesses' touch another Pernand premier cru called 'Ile des Vergelesses'! Sorry! We do our best to keep it all simple and clear. In addition to being the most complicated corner of the Savigny valley, it is also the most interesting. This Savigny white is an eye-catcher, with a greeny-gold hint. Fresh, elegant fruit notes with spice tones and a hint of honey and flinty smokiness.
