Superb wines, sadly almost gone
This afternoon we present a small selection of top Burgundy of which we have just a handful of bottles remaining.
With prices ever-increasing there is some serious value to be had.
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques 2010
Special Price $148.50
Only 13 Bottles left
Decanter Wines Awards 2014
Decanter: A beautifully plush Burgundy, with a minerally, leathery perfume of wild strawberries and cream plus an exuberance of dark red fruit. Developing on the palate, with sweet and savoury notes, hints of leather and wood smoke, and enough fruit to manage the tannins. A long finish and fine future.
Domaine Anne Gros Echezeaux Grand Cru 2012
Only 3 Bottles left
Jancis Robinson: From tank. 50% new oak. Blackish ruby. Round and sweet. Quite rich and very delicious underneath. Hugely hedonistic. Yummy. Very lip smacking. Fresh too. Everything - fruit, acid and tannin - exactly comme il faut. 18.5 Points
Domaine Antonin Guyon
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2010
Only 4 Bottles left
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": There was just a touch of reduction on the nose of the 2010 Guyon Corton-Charlemagne, but the wine is absolutely superb underneath. The wine was raised in fifty percent new oak this year, which it has absolutely devoured. The bouquet is a deep, pure and utterly classic blend of apple, pink grapefruit, lemon zest, white flowers, intense chalky minerality, iodine and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and structured, with a superb core of silky fruit, bright acids, a great signature of soil, laser-like focus and outstanding length and grip on the transparent and rapier-like finish. A beautiful bottle of Corton Charlie. 95+ Points
Only 6 MAGNUMS left
Robert Parkers's Wine Advocate: The 2012 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru comes from 0.60-hectare of vine located just next to the Hospices' vines. It has a more feminine, slightly more rounded bouquet compared to the Bressandes at the moment, the fruit leaning a little more to the red. The palate is very well balanced with a firm backbone. There is plenty of spice tinged black and red fruit with a generous sprinkle of white pepper over the long, tender finish. Excellent. 93-95 Points
Hospices de Beaune Volnay 1er Cru Santenay Cuvee Gauvain 2011
Only 10 Bottles left
Anthony Hanson MW: In colour, this is a beautiful, purple-ruby, with very ripe, fragrant aromas, which are subtly spicy. On the palate, the wine is full and luscious, yet also shows the inimitable finesse of its great, First Growth Volnay terroir. This wine is delicately poised, all aspects being in fine harmony, but with elegance being the outstanding factor. Tannins are firmly present, to ensure harmonious ageing, the finish being impressively long and vivacious.
