A Burghound 94-Point Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru not to be missed!
The lastest issue of Burghound has arrived in my in-box this morning. It features 2013 White Burgundy which he describes as "classic and elegant". He is a big fan suggesting that wine lovers should be "more aggressive than usual" when considering what to buy.
Those of you who follow Burghound will also know that very few Premier Crus score 94 Points. That is the domaine of Grand Crus. I did a search and found that Burghound has only rated six 2013 1er Crus 94 Points (nothing higher) and two of them are from Domaine Latour-Giraud!
In fact both of these wines are listed in Burghound's DON'T MISS List alongside Grand Crus from Leflaive, Boillot etc.
It has been exciting to follow the path of Domaine Latour-Giraud over recent years. This Domaine, run by Jean-Pierre Latour, has risen to the top echelon and now rates alongside the big names as a top source for aromatic, mineral and racy whites. (No coarse, heavy, fat wines here!).
Today we feature the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Canet but I also suggest you take a look at the full range from Latour-Giraud. There are many wonderful wines including 93-Point Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres and Charmes. A mixed case would not go astray!
Our allocation of these wines will not last. Order today and you can take advantage of our Pre Arrival Prices and save 15% on the landed cost.

Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierre 2013
The other Burghound 94-Point wine! We have a very small quantity of this remarkable wine available. Tanzer says "Stunning potential here, one of my early candidates for premier cru of the vintage." This wine is only available on allocation. For every 6 bottles of 2013 Latour-Giraud 1er Cru Charmes, Genevrieres or Champs Canet purchased you may buy 1 bottle of Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierre 2013.
