Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2020
With this Aloxe Corton, Jean-Jacques comes roaring out of his home valley of Savigny les Beaune. Where his Savigny is floral, spicy and elegant up front, the first nose of this Aloxe Corton is powerful, animal. Then it's a mouthful of black fruit, with the elegance rolling in on the mid-palate and sticking around for the finish and the reflection. This is another register for Jean-Jacques Girard, who, you will find, has perfect pitch!
Domaine Jean Fery Cote de Nuits Villages 2019
It is as accessible as it is amiable, honest and straightforward in taste. The red, which has the gleaming crimson highlights of the Pinot grape, veers sometimes towards an intense garnet hue or, when young, a bright cherry. Its aromas run a classic spectrum through cherry, gooseberry and blackcurrant to notes of underbrush, mushroom and spices (cinnamon). This is a big-hearted wine, powerful in the mouth, full and meaty, and its tannins (more conspicuously present in the younger wines) are well smoothed-down. Ruby red with fresh fruit cherry and black currant dominant. Spicy, with good structure and fine tannins. An elegant wine drinking way above its appellation.
Jean Claude Rateau Beaune 'Prevoles 2017
Floral, round and structures, dense and full with great tension and a long long finish on the fruit.
Domaine Pierre Thibert Chorey Les Beaune 2019
Pierre Thibert is a ‘garagiste’ no more! And we’re here to report on big changes in this small-production, top-quality, self-made domain. Pierre and his wife, Aline, have accomplished what many say is no longer possible in Burgundy: they built a solid family domain, a world-class reputation and a sophisticated style over the course of a single generation. They created something out of nothing! Delicate and supple, rich and full of Pinot Noir character. Crimson with classic red and black fruits set off by earth and spice. Good and subtle tannic structure finishing long on fruit.
Domaine Bernard Regnaudot Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2021
Although the vineyards are just outside the village of Maranges there certainly is a different character to this 'Hautes Côtes de Beaune' when compared to the other wines in our collection. We recommend a fun side by side comparison and you will detect the Terroir difference we celebrate here in Burgundy. The fruit is more prominent, with deeper notes of red berries. Rose petals with some background earthy notes emerge although blanketed with bright acidity, soft tannin notes of white pepper transcend into the finish.
Domaine Thierry Mortet Bourgogne Rouge 'Les Charmes de Daix' 2020
Thierry Mortet produces about 6000 bottles a year of Bourgogne Rouge from six different parcels making up about 2.5 acres. This means there is great diversity in the strains of Pinot and the age of the vines, producing a wine with contour. Deep, dense and brilliant, its smoky spice opens to fresh black cherry sweet fruit with a charcoal edge. Delicious and luscious.
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.
