A terrific new domaine in Puligny-Montrachet with super wines at excellent prices
 
I have been to Burgundy enough times that it comes as a huge surprise to discover a domaine I have never heard of.

Whilst in Burgundy earlier this month I was leafing through Bill Nanson's The Finest Wines of Burgundy A Guide to the Best Producers of the Cote d'Or and Their Wines when I can across Domaine Jomain - in Puligny-Montrachet.

Puligny-Montrachet is small and I have driven through it so many times that I was surprised that I had not seen their name on one of the many signs directing people to producers. The fact that they were in Nanson's book alongside the well-known, big names of Burgundy suggested some investigation was warranted.

I contacted the domaine and was invited to visit and taste the wines the following day. I arrived at the address supplied only to find I could could not locate the domaine. A quick call to Philippe Jomain and I heard a voice from up one of the side lanes calling to me. There was indeed a sign out the front but the location explained why I had never seen it.

Domaine Jomain is small - just 8 hectares - but they have some prime appellations. The wonderful vineyards are terrific but the small size of the domaine proved to be a problem.

Philippe started me with their Bourgogne Chardonnay 2015. The fruit comes from Puligny-Montrachet, half in barrel and half in stainless steel. It was quite simply one of the best Bourgogne blancs that I have ever tasted. He then gave me the bad news - the wine was completely sold out.

Philippe went on to tell me that virtually all of their 2014's and 2015's had sold out and that they had almost nothing to offer me. I was feeling a little frustrated. Great vineyards, great vintages and nothing to buy. Arrgh!

However, after some to and froing he managed to find me a little wine and today I present the first - an outstanding Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Perrieres from the great 2014 vintage.

As a new addition to our portfolio we offer offer the wine at a special 25% Pre Arrival Discount. That makes this wine seriously good value.

Jomain Perrieres label
Bill Nanson on Domaine Jomain: The wine I would search out, however, is Les Perrieres - a wine of outstanding intensity, where the terroir doesn't have a particularly obvious mark, and yet it combines finesse and minerality.

Darren Harris: 6 barrels in 2014. There are numerous Perrieres vineyards in Burgundy and they always indicate the presence of stone - in this case from the remnants of old quarries. The stone always ensures a mineral complexity. Very pure and mineral on the nose. Citrus, flowers and cold, white stones. There is a beautiful elegance combined with piercing Puligny freshness. A real dancer on the palate. Saline, racy and long and I have to say delicious. Classic Puligny-Montrachet and such good value.

Jomain 2015 Combettes Header
36 Bottles left

Combottes lies directly across the border from the Meursault 1er Crus Charmes and Perrieres. Jasper Morris says "(Combottes) shares with its neighbours the plumpness of top Meursault without losing the refinements and mineral elegance of great Puligny."

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": A nose to fall into; slightly cushioned by sweet oak, it's an inviting sweet yellow citrus too. Hmm... again slightly padded by oak, but just a really beautiful mouth-watering sweet acidity with flavours very much to the mineral side. There's a little richness here, but simply a gorgeousness too - bravo. Decadent drinking!
 
Darren Harris: Unmistakable Puligny nose of flowers, citrus, stonefruit and minerals. A little richer both on the nose and palate than the 2014 Perrieres tasted prior, but still with exceptional freshness and vivacity. Terrific intensity and mouthfeel, refined and palate coating, with vibrant fruit balanced by Puligny's inherent acidity.
