Domaine Bruno Desaunay-Bissey is a name that is familar to many Burgundy drinkers in Australia.

The family own parcels of very old vines in and around Vosne-Romanee. Since 2007 Bruno uses no herbicides or pesticides, all the soil being tilled. Bruno's winemaking is very terroir-expressive, doing short pre-fermentation maceration, using indigenous yeasts, and not too much extraction. Barrel-aging is about 1/3 new except for more with the Grands Crus. The wines are neither fined nor filtered. The result is beautifully balanced, perfumed, textured, complex, lingering Burgundies.

The domaine does not seek the opinion of critics so there are few reviews on the internet. However, my impression is that the wines are quite elegant with the texture that only old vines can add.

We have four wines available all of which we offer at a 30% Pre Arrival Discount.

Landed Price $145.00
Pre Arrival Price $101.50

Basically an extension of the Grand Cru Echezeaux climat En Orveaux. The vines here are almost a century old.

The vineyard produces very stylish wines.
desaunay-bissey vosne rouges label Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Rouges 2015
Landed Price $193.50
Pre Arrival Price $135.50
The Premier Cru Les Rouges lies immediately above the Echezeaux climats Les Champs Traversins and Les Rouges du Bas - not a bad location! The soil is full of tiny pebbles and the cool breeze means that the grapes ripen two weeks after most of Echezeaux. Desaunay-Bissey's vines are around 80 years of age.
desaunay-bissey beaux monts label Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaumonts 2015
Landed Price $199.50
Pre Arrival Price $139.95

Les Beamonts is located high on the slope above Echezeaux, Les Suchots and Richebourg. It produces cool-fruited, pure wines which can be quite exceptional.

The domaine's vines are 80 years old.

Landed Price $469.00
Pre Arrival Price $328.00
Very Limited
Desaunay-Bissey own just 0.15 hectares spread between the climats Les Champs Traversins and Les Quartiers de Nuits. The later is an unusual appellation as when you look at a map it is appears that it should be part of the Clos Vougeot climat Petit Maupertui except that it has been otherwise removed and left outside the Clos' wall. Politics?

The domaine's vines are over 110 years of age and this is their only Grand Cru. The jewel in their crown.

Denis Pere Paulands Mood
Domaine Denis Pere et Fils Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2015
$137.95 a Bottle!
Last Case

Domaine Denis Père et Fils is a family business located in Pernand-Vergelesses, a picturesque town located in the Côte de Beaune. The property includes 13.5 hectares of vineyard holdings which encompass the terrains of Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Chorey-Les-Beaune.
 
Just like his father and grandfather before him, Raoul Denis began a career as a vigneron of the prestigious Hospices de Beaune in 1940. Yet Raoul also had aspirations to work on the small 2 hectare family property and nurture it into what he believed it had the potential to be. So, together with his wife Raymonde, Raoul began fulfilling a long-time dream. By 1972, Denise and Raymonde had established Denis Père et fils with the help of their eldest son Roland and his wife Annick. With a passion and dedication to their craft, and the acquisitions in the Ile des Vergelesses appellation, their vineyards grew bigger and richer. In 1982, when the Denis family acquired prominent parcels in Corton Charlemagne and Aloxe Corton as well as other new vineyards, they were soon selling over 10 hectares of various wines. Ten years later, in 1992, Raoul passed the torch to his youngest son Christophe and the tradition, and the dream, continued successfully.

Today we present their Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2015. Les Paulands lies below Les Bressandes on the Hill of Corton. It is only 1.05 hectares in size and much of it belongs to Comte Senard.
 
I don't have a tasting note for the wine but I was so impressed by the price that I snapped up the 24 bottles I was offered.

Landed Price $183.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $137.95

This has to be the best value Grand Cru Red available from 2015!
