PREMIER CRU WHITE DUET
Send the spirit of Burgundy to friends family and colleagues with a hand selected pair of two of our favorite white from our premier cru collection.
Domaine Gilles Saint Aubin 1er Cru 'Murgers des Dents de Chiens' 2020
Gilles has two different parcels in this, the best known of the Saint-Aubin premier crus. One with old vines, situated near the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Les Garennes’ (which he also makes), and the other near Puligny 1er Cru ‘Folatieres’. He makes these wine in double-sized barrels, 40% new oak, to tame the tannins. There is a deep, almost Meursault quality to the Dents de Chien, spicy and complex. Great continuity from attack, through mid-palate and on to a superb finish.
Jean-Baptiste Ponsot Rully 1er Cru ‘Montpalais’ 2019
Gun-flint smoky minerality drives this ripe, old-vine fruit and elegant white flower complexity to great lengths. Extremely long finish, and the hallmark tension, even in old vine depth. Aging 12 months in barrels (20% of new oak barrels) and 3 months of assembly in mass.
