Verpaille 2011 Selling Fast Header

Selling Fast! The 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 on the way from France. More than half has already sold.

 

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 on the way. The other three wines can be ordered but delivery will not be until late in the year.

 

2011 Macon Villages Vieilles Vignes 

Verpaille Macon 2011 Label Normally $24.00

Pre Arrival Price $20.50 a bottle

Or $239.00 a Case of 12 (=$19.92 a bottle)


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.

Another Great Value White Burgundy

2007 Domaine Roger Belland Santenay Comme Dessus 

Just 29 bottles left

Belland Commes Blanc Label

 

 Comme-Dessus is a top lieu-dit located 500 metres from the Chassagne-Montrachet border. The soil is stony clay-limestone. Vines are at least 25 years old. The wine spends 8 months in oak.

 

The wine combines the fresh acidity of 2007 with a little bottle development. The result is a superb drink at less than the price of most generic Bourgogne Blancs.


Jasper Morris MW in "Inside Burgundy" lists Roger Belland as a top producer.

 

Burghound: This is also quite fresh with a notably more complex nose that offers up hints of straw, earth and crushed herb that complements the vibrant, delicious, precise and refreshing flavors that really makes one feel like drinking it. A Santenay villages blanc with personality and enough potential to reward a year or two in the cellar. 

88 Points

 

I can't help think that if this wine had a better known name on the label it would score even higher.
