This month's tasting series will be featuring Elden Selections, an online Burgundy wine retailer that brings small production Burgundy wines to the U.S. from the heart of Burgundy.
Dennis Sherman is a United States native that has lived in France for over 30 years and knows this region and its producers like the back of his hand. Over the years he has built lifelong relationships with many small production producers, which has allowed people in the United States to enjoy these hidden gem wines that can’t be found anywhere else. He has handcrafted a Burgundy wine list that is second to none.
Stephen Lenahan is a WSET certified wine teacher and has lived at the Domaine de Cromey for the past 2 years. He was also the head chef for a castle in Ireland so if there is one thing he knows, it is flavors. He knows everything from how the terroir affects the wines to what pairs best with them. If someone is going to take your mouth on a flavor journey it's Stephen.
This case will include 6 different bottles PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED. 2 bottles will be wines for the tasting and the other 4 are producers you will be visiting when you come to Cromey:
Gabin and Felix Richoux Irancy Rosé 2018 (tasting wine) x4
This rosé made from 100% Pinot Noir should be taken seriously. It shows the same profile that you find with all Richoux wines. This is an elegant expression of Pinot Noir, with notes of orange peel acidity and black cherry fruit The acidity carries all this elegance through to a fine finish.
Domaine Borgeot Crémant de Bourgogne (tasting wine)x4
Don’t call it Champagne. You’ll get us in trouble. But this Borgeot Cremant de Bourgogne is produced in the very same way as those much more expensive wines that we are allowed to call Champagne. A well-made Cremant is a joy. A wine you can pull out for any occasion. And a wine which is made on a more human scale than the millions upon millions of bottles produced by our neighbors to the north. And that’s reason enough to celebrate!
Domaine Michel Arcelain Bourgogne 2016 x1
Michel and Mado Arcelain have been working their domain in Pommard together since they were married in 1963. The domain is made up of parcels of vines inherited from both sides of the family and over a number of generations, as well as vineyards purchased by them over the years. These vineyards (with the exception of a small parcel planted in Chardonnay) are all Pinot Noir of the highest quality, known as Pinot Fin. The domain has taken on a younger face of late, with the arrival of their grandson Pierre Andre, a young dynamic force in an already dynamic domain.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Blanc 2018 x1
From parcels around Savigny-les Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, this is a cuvee designed to show Pascal Marchand’s vision of Chardonnay. Floral, with that Corton Mountain minerality, great acidity that makes it mouth-wateringly juicy and open. It’s ready. A lovely image of white from the middle reaches of the Cote d’Or.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018 x1
From the first whiff you know there is substance here. The nose is so expressive and full of black fruit. There’s great tannic structure, but well integrated. There’s charm. fresh, soft and spicy. And what you find in the nose lingers to a long delicate finish.
Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne Rouge 2018 x1
Jean-Jacques Girard's family has been making wine in the Savigny-les Beaune valley for 500 years, so it's not surprising to find that his regional appellation Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a little Savigny. Blackcurrant freshness, a touch of earth subsoil, a supple, easy structure and bull's-eye line on through the whole from the attack to the finish.
