Direct from the Domaine. A Terrific Range of Grand Crus from Top Vintages at less than the Current Release! Act quickly, this is almost too good to be true!
Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut is a family winery. They are located in Ladoix-Serrigny at the junction of the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits, at the foot of the famous hill of Corton. Over six generations have seen this domain gradually develop around the small hamlet of Buisson. The vineyard holdings total just over 16 hectares and production is 80,000 bottles a year, of which 50% is sold in France. The domaine has holdings in the Grand Crus Corton Bressandes, Corton Hautes Mourottes and Corton-Charlemagne and some lovely Premier Crus in Ladoix-Serrigny that taste like mini Cortons.
Like many producers in the Cote de Beaune recent vintages have been difficult and small. Hail has decimated the vineyards and yields have been well below normal.
It is very bad news for many producers. Fortunately, Ravaut have some reserve stocks to draw upon and we are delighted to be able to offer these wines to our clients.
Being reserve stocks the wines we have are generally Grand Crus from very good to exceptional years. We have Corton Grand Crus from 1999, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2008 available.
And all at prices that are less than the current vintage!
How about 1999 Corton Bressandes or Hautes Mourottes Grand Crus for just $149.96 a Bottle by the Case! Or the 2002's for a mere $117.71 a bottle by the Case!
We have priced the wine to sell quickly. So instead of our usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount we offer 20%. If you buy an unbroken case of a particular wine we'll increase the discount to 25%! Everyone is a winner!
