Girardin Chassagne Header
Top Vineyard, Serious Vintage, Great Price!
 
The Girardins have been in Burgundy for thirteen generations. Justin is the latest family member to take control of the 17 hectare estate and we are seeing the change of name from Domaine Jacques Girardin to Domaine Justin Girardin.
 
Like all top small domaines the Girardins are always looking to expand and upgrade the quantity and quality of their landholdings.

This expansion includes a 0.17 hectare parcel of Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots. Jasper Morris says "Morgeots can have weight, power, profundity and the ability to deliver wines with considerable ageing potential." It is one of Chassagne-Montrachet's best known vineyards.

We are delighted, for the first time, to offer the Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgots Blanc from Domaine Girardin. What is nice, with the domaine being small and on the rise, is the price. At under $100 a bottle this is a real bargain. We only have 36 bottles so please act quickly.

Girardin Morgeots Label  
We're too early for a review on this wine but we do have some technical specifications. The average age of the vines is 30 years. the grapes are manually harvested with elevage in barrels of which 25% are new.
This is the historic first vintage under the Domaine Justin Girardin label and it is exceptional value.
Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media says of the 2014 White Burgundy vintage "As a vintage, the 2014 whites show a lovely natural balance of fruit, flesh and acidity. The wines are for the most part a bit higher in acidity than the 2013s, but they are less likely to come across as sharp since they possess considerably more buffering material.""Two thousand fourteen appears to be a very good, classic crop of concentrated, fleshy wines that will offer good early appeal and age well. In my cellar visits in late spring, a few growers compared the 2014s to their 2010s in tautness, noting that the 2014s can possess even purer fruit, while others say that the '14s are less aromatically complex. But the fruit in 2014 was ripe and clean, and the concentration and dry extract in the young wines suggest that there is more ahead for the '14s. Most growers agree that while the 2014s are fruity in their youth and relatively easy to taste, they will have at least mid-term aging potential." Sounds nearly perfect to me!

Castagnier Chambolle label new
Last 12 Bottles of the Jerome Castagnier Chambolle-Musigny 2012
 
Everybody loves classic Chambolle-Musigny. And this wine is just that.
Domainer Castagnier has offered us a little 2012 Chambolle-Musigny to top up our order.
This wine comes from a 0.33 hectare parcel planted way back in 1934. It is always classic Chambolle-Musigny - very aromatic and supple with beguiling depth and an elegant frame. It is delicious - especially from a fruit-driven vintage like 2012.

We only have 12 bottles left!
Normally $99.95
Pre Arrival Price $84.95
