As the vines take on a golden hue, let’s rediscover the beauty of Burgundy where Chardonnay and Pinot noir form part of the cultural landscape of tradition. Celebrate this most classic of regions with legendary names, memorable vintage years, grands and premiers crus, and understated rarities.
If you’re looking for a legend, look no further. We have a 2014 Echezeaux and a La Tâche in the same vintage from none other than Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, one to inspire in you a desire for excellence. A Côte de Nuits neighbour is Clos de l’Arlot, from which we have a 2018 Nuits Saint Georges premier cru, and from Meursault a 2011 Les Chevalières by Coche-Dury.
Whether they’re ready to enjoy or better off left in the cellar to age, the bottles in this sale all tell stories and legends. Stories of bygone eras, of their vintage years and their creators. To remind you of how propitious 2012 and 2017 were for the flourishing of the Chardonnay vines, let yourself be tempted by a 2012 Corton-Charlemagne by Sylvain Loichet, or by the 2017 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and Montrachet from Etienne Sauzet. The elegant Pinot noir will give its all from the 2018 vintage, one that you can try in the form of a Santenay Clos de Hâtes by Hubert Lamy…and it’s a magnum, too!
Rich in traditional and inimitable savoir-faire, Burgundy can be considered unattainable, even elitist, when it comes to its wines. However, there are some fine producers whose work remains accessible. We’re thinking of the Côte Chalonnaise Les Clous by Aubert and Pamela de Villaine, the Chablis cuvées by Alice and Olivier de Moor and by Domaine Pattes-Loup, as well as Domaine Guffens-Heynen’s Mâcon-Pierreclos and Saint-Véran.
The life cycle of the vineyard is one that goes on, as are the pleasures of tasting the fruits of your favourite wine makers. Already a fan of Clos de Tart, Domaine des Moirots, Alain Gas or Sylvie Esmonin? Get your hands on the new bottles we’ve recently added to our selection and share them with your nearest and dearest.
Certain references have also had their prices reduced…but don’t wait around! We all know that the rarity of Burgundy’s produce is one of its most enticing attributes.
