Domaine Bertagna 2014-2015 Pre Arrival Offer. Last bottles. Arriving next month

 
Bertagna 2014-2015 PA Header
New label, new era!
Super wines from the 2014 and 2015 vintages 
 
One of the things I love about Burgundy is that nothing stays constant. Domaines rise and fall. However, in recent years more are on the rise than decline as estates gather knowledge from far afield, often by way of their travel-wise children. Quality (and prices) continue to rise but prices still look reasonable when compared to First-Growth Bordeaux.
I have been drinking Burgundy for around 35 years. I have a snapshot in my mind about many producers based on their efforts of 10 or maybe 20 years ago. I am pleased to say I am often wrong. The new generation, or perhaps simply a new winemaker, has breathed life into many a domaine. 
Bertagna Perriere Gate I have to say Domaine Bertagna fits into the latter category. I was offered the domaine earlier this year and was a little undecided. But as I planned to be in Burgundy I decided to visit and taste the wines. My first Burgundy tasting of the trip was at Bertagna where Eva Reh-Siddle ran me through both 2014's and 2015's. The wines were universally excellent. The domaine has a fine portfolio from generic Burgundy, through a clutch of top Premier Crus to five Grand Crus.
The wines are on the way from France and will arrive next month. To encourage you to try the wines of the "new Bertagna" we offer all all wines at a 25% Introductory Pre Arrival Discount. Some wines have already sold out and many are getting very close so don't delay.
A few wines....
Chambertin Grand Cru 2014
Landed Price $455.00
Special Pre Arrival Price $341.00
12 bottles left
Bertagna Chambertin Label
Decanter World Wine Awards 2017: Spicy and stout with a floral and spicy nose. Bags of red fruits and class on the silky palate. Very good indeed. No rush in the cellar. 95 Points and Gold Medal
Darren Harris: Deep red. Explosive aromatics. Minerals, spicy red fruits - currants, raspberry combined with cherry tartness. Longjing tea and earthy notes combine with smokey spice and a wild note to seduce the senses. Quality new oak is all but buried behind the opulent and powerful mid palate: very textured with a great sweetness of fruit that (at least initially) could be 2015. The fine tannins kick in towards the end to add line and drive. You could be forgiven for drinking this now but like all Chambertin it will surely close down and demand time in the cellar.
Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2015
Landed Price $229.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $172.50
32 bottles left

Bertagna Beaux Monts Label Darren Harris: Extremely deep colour. Rich and powerful nose of black cherry, violets, spice and Asian tea. Sleek and rich in the mouth with excellent definition and significant muscle. Complex fruits and spices mingle with florals and dusty new oak (the wine saw 50%). Persistent and long with a mineral-infused spine and fine-grained tannins. This is a serious wine that is built to cellar.
Corton Les Grandes Lolieres Grand Cru 2015
Landed Price $417.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $312.95
12 bottles left

Bertagna Corton Label
Darren Harris: I'm drinking from a bottle opened five days ago! I have Winesaved it but I cannot believe what is in the glass. The colour is so deep that it is almost black. I sense there is something special to follow.

And it does.

This wine envelops you. It is a carcophony of aromas and flavours. Small red and black fruits - cherry, blueberry - spicy oak, liquorice, game, earth, and they positively leap from the glass. Loads of extract. Lavishly textured with velvet and lace and finishing with long, long fine grained tannins. It is beautifully made - this is Grand Cru luxe all the way.

If the label stated it was from one of the better Grand Crus in Gevrey-Chambertin I would not be surprised. This wine is quite something. I nearly dismissed it based on price and for Corton it is not cheap, for what is in the bottle it is very reasonable. What a shame that would have been.  It is every bit the equal brother of the domaine's Chambertin and Clos St-Denis. This is great Grand Cru Burgundy from a wonderful year. Oh, how far Corton has come in recent years.
