Full red. 
A heady bouquet evokes red and dark berry preserves, potpourri and spicecake, with a bright mineral accent.

This wine should age gracefully on its balance.

Domaine Pichat Cote-Rotie Les Grandes Places 2013
Special $79.00 (Back in stock - Offered elsewhere in Australia at $154.00!)
12 bottles available

Pichat Grandes Places Label
Wine Advocate - Jeb Dunnuck
Also showing the fresher, more focused style of the vintage, the 2013 Côte Rôtie les Grandes Places has plenty of minerality and depth in its darker fruits, smoked herbs, licorice and crushed rock-like bouquet. This vineyard always produces a more masculine style of Côte Rôtie, and this 2013 is no exception. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and with fine tannin, it will be better in another couple of years and drink well through 2028.

Amiot Pierre Combottes
Domaine Pierre Amiot et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combottes 2006

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combottes is an interesting vineyard. Last week we offered the 2015 Georges Lignier and told the story of this "almost Grand Cru" site.

The 2006 vintage has aged beautifully and is now in its drinking window. This would be cheaper than the current release.

 Burghound: (from 3 separate parcels totaling .61 ha with two almost touching Latricières- Chambertin and the other at the southern end of the vineyard by Clos de la Roche). A pungent mix of sauvage notes and fresh red berry fruit aromas that also possess a hint of crushed leaf precedes the earthy, complex and refined middle weight flavors that culminate in an edgy finish. This is the densest of these 1ers and easily the best of the group. 90 Points

Liger-belair thibault gruenchers label
Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers 2011

Burghound: Like many
of the wines in the range there is a distinctly floral character to the elegant and cool combination of red currant, plum and sandalwood scents. There is a lush, even opulent mouth feel to the silky and pure medium weight flavors that possess excellent depth on the balanced and impressively long finish. Despite the seductive character of the mid-palate this really tightens up fast on the finish so the structure will require on the order of a decade to fully resolve. 91 Points

Jadot Vougeot Label
Louis Jadot Clos-Vougeot Grand Cru 2012

Vinous, Antonio Galloni: The 2012 Clos Vougeot is one of the most impressive of the Grand Crus I tasted at Jadot this year. Powerful, rich and layered, the 2012 has more than enough fruit to balance the tannins. Dark red fruit, scorched earth, chalk and iron are all layered into the supple, racy finish. This is a surprisingly finessed Clos Vougeot. Hints of rose petal and mint add lift on the close. There is so much to admire here. 
(Drink between 2022-2042).
