Domaine Maillard Père et Fils was established in 1766 in the heart of the Burgundy wine region. Since then, it has changed village several times to settle finally in Chorey-les-Beaune in 1952.
Today, the domaine comprises 18 hectares in seven communes. The jewels in their crown are their red and white Cortons.
Many of you will have tasted Maillard's wines at our dinners and tastings. The style here is largely traditional with the added benefits of modern winemaking knowledge. The Corton Reds are deep and complex, with the structure you would expect from this up-and-coming commune.
Corton Rouge Grand Cru 2011
Normally $132.50 a Bottle
Pre Arrival Special $99.95 (Save 25%)
Case of 12 Bottles $1075.00 (=$89.59 a Bottle CRAZY)
This Corton comes from tiny holdings of old vines on the hill of Corton totalling just 0.19 hectares. It is vinified separately to Maillard's Renarde cuvee. Vinification is traditional and the elevage is completed in 228 litre barrels (75% new) for 18 months. The result is a classic Corton with purple flowers, stone, earth, spice and a hint of animale. The domaine suggests 7-20 years in the cellar to see the wine at its best.
The bad news is that Maillard only make about 900 bottles annually. So if you want to take advantage of the Bargain of the Year please act quickly. Needless to say, stocks are limited!
When did you last see a Grand Cru Red for less than $90.00 a bottle? That is less than the price of many Villages wines!
Buy a case and drink it over the next 20 years (and pat yourself on the back each time you do).
