Domaine Borgeot Chassagne 1er Cru 'Clos St. Jean' 2018
The Clos St Jean lies toward the northern end of Chassagne-Montrachet, close to St Aubin, and borders a limestone quarry. For years we have insisted that it makes is one of the great red wines of the cote de Beaune, despite the modern trends to re-plant it with Chardonnay. And therein lies a tale. Years ago when the Borgeots wanted to take their production up a notch, they took on a partner and set up a small negociant house. One of the conditions of the deal was that they had to rip up their prized Clos St Jean red and replant it in white...which of course commands a higher price. The brothers were gutted because they knew what a great red parcel the Clos St Jean is. But they did it...and regretted it for years. But once they were really up and running, they got hold of another piece of Clos St Jean planted in Pinot Noir. These guys are true to their heritage and close to the earth. And it shows in everything they do!
Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2018
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.
Domaine Borgeot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru 'Chenevottes' 2018
The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Chenevottes', located east of the village and not far from grand cru Montrachet, is a complex vineyard, made up of light soils that are easy to cultivate on a mild slope with good exposure. What you get is a wine that is extremely bright with citric acidity and floral aromas that are finely chiseled, and with a concentration that finishes long and intense.
