PREMIER CRU RED TRIO
3 Bottle Gift Set of Red Premier Cru - one bottle of each.
Domaine Albert Boillet Pommard 1er Cru 'En Largilliere' 2016
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. Here it is showing juicy, dense blackcurrant fruit, good solid acidity and the linear tightness you would expect in its youth. Rose petals and violets, black pepper and spice. This one is worth your cellar space.
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.
