Verpaille 2011 Header

New 2011 Vintage of one of our all-time best sellers!


Most of us are rather partial to a glass or two of Chardonnay, particularly when it comes from France. Located just south of Beaune, the Macon, which is part of Burgundy, is producing increasingly fine wines. The World Atlas of Wine by Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson says "The slightly warmer climate than that of the Cote d'Or suits the Chardonnay grape, which seems gloriously at home in the Maconnais."


Our first vintage of Domaine de la Verpaille was a total sellout success. These great value 2010 White Burgundies proved extremely popular with numerous buyers dissappointed that the wines had sold out when they tried to order more. 


The 2011 vintage of the Macon Vieilles Vignes is now available and we are about to ship it.

Domaine de la Verpaille is s very small domaine. They produce a range of wines from some unbelievably old vines. Since 2009 they have been organic and use very limited sulphur and copper prefering natural methods inthe vineyard.


They practice slow fermentation, no chapitalization and ageing on the lees. Oak plays a minimal part. The vineyards do the talking.


This results in very pure and mineral wines, with lovely freshness and vibrancy. They are very impressive wines that earned Domaine de la Verpaille the New Talent Award from French Guide La Revue du Vin de France last year.  


We present the range of 2011 whites. At this stage only the Macon Vieilles is bottled and ready for shipping and this will occur in the next few weeks. The other three wines can be ordered but delivery will not be until late in the year.

Verpaille Macon 2011 Label Normally $24.00

When they say Vieilles Vignes (old vines) they really mean it! This remarkable wine is produced from 115 year old Chardonnay vines!


Another fresh and bright vintage for this killer wine. The ancient vines add power and texture. Somewhat reminiscent of fine Chablis (only half the price). Great drinking and tremendous value.

Domaine du Clos Frantin 

2010 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts

Frantin Malconsorts Label 2010

Les Malconsorts is an exceptional 1er Cru. It is located alongside La Tache and is less than 400 metres from Romanee-Conti. Domaine du Frantin owns a substantial 1.76 ha parcel with a vine age of 35 to 40 years. Jasper Morris MW says  "Aux Malconsorts was first taken out of scrubland and planted with vines in 1610, relatively late for this part of the Cote. Nonetheless it is an exceptional vineyard, one of my three favourite premier crus along with Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses and Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques."


It is always a popular vineyard with our clients and we are pleased to advise we have a little of the 2010 still available.


The wine is on the way so the opportunity to purchase at the Pre Arrival price will not be available for too much longer.


Normally $165.00

Pre Arrival Price $140.00
