SIZZLING SUMMER WHITES
We have selected 4 whites to enjoy during the summer while lounging with friends by the pool or on your own secluded beach. Includes 3 bottles of each PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED:
Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2017
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. Mineral and smoky, lemongrass acidity, dead-center structure, this is a Borgeot white par excellence.
Domaine Jean Fery Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Vergelesses' Blanc 2017
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.
Domaine Oudin Chablis 1er Cru 'Vaugiraut 2017
An upper left bank premier cru that sits above the village of Chichée and to the south of Chablis itself, this Oudin Vaugiraut is a moment of pleasure with ripe fruit and gun-flint smoke. It’s floral and stony with a hint of salty sea breeze, pure and powerful and elegant.
Jean Claude Rateau Beaune 'Coucherias' 2017
Pale gold with complex notes of white flowers, citrus and almond. Fresh and racy, balanced between fruit and acidity with great mineral length.
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.
