Marchand-Grillot 2016 PA Header
A wonderful address for lovers of Gevrey-Chambertin
Order today and save an additional 10%

Marchand-Grillot has become both a personal favourite of mine and of our clients. The domaine has a wonderful array of vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin. In 2016 the domaine lost around 50% of their potential production yet they have managed to produce all cuvees except for the Gevrey-Chambertin En Jouise. 
The shortfall in production has necessitated price increases across the board. To help balance this out we offer all the 2016 wines at a Special Pre Arrival Discount of 25%. I have been a little slow adding my tasting notes to the website so I have extended this offer to orders received by midday tomorrow. After that the Pre Arrival Discount will revert to the usual 15%.
Jacques Marchand is the seventh generation of his family to be involved in wine. Located in Gevrey-Chambertin this domaine owns an exciting range of vineyards. Their 9 hectares are spread across 47 different plots! In addition to Premier and Grand Cru holdings the domaine is one the few to bottle a selection of lieu-dits. These wines are particularly exciting as today the general practice is to blend these vineyards into a generic wine.

Don't miss the Gevrey lieut-dits or the rare and very special Ruchottes-Chambertin. The domaine owns a minute 0.08 of a hectare which makes just a single barrel!

Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Velle 2016
Landed Price $144.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $107.95

marchand-grillot Au velle label
Darren Harris: Nose of dark fruits, marzipan, minerals and coconut. Cool. Opens in the glass to display a complex palate with fresh juice and a tight, restrained power. Always light on its feet the 2016 Au Velle displays the all the expected character of this well-sited vineyard (alongside the 1er Cru Les Cazetiers and Les Champeaux).

Gevrey-Chambertin En Songe 2016
Landed Price $144.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $107.95

marchand-grillot en songe label
Darren Harris: A little more aromatic and open than Aux Velle with a classic Gevrey nose of cherry, raspberry and some mineral earth. The palate has a roundness and gentle plushness with excellent extract before firming up on the finish.



Gevrey-Chambertin En Creot 2016
Landed Price $152.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $114.50

marchand-grillot creot label
Darren Harris: From the Brochon side. Red with a hint of garnet. This is the darkest and deepest of the three regular lieu-dits in 2016. There are notes of raspberry and dark chocolate with a rich and juicy fresh palate that is so 2016. There is a fine line of acid through the wine. Powerful and intense.

Gevrey-Chambertin Champerrier Vigne Centenaire 2016
Landed Price $199.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $149.50

Marchand-Grillot Champerrier label Darren Harris: On the same contour as Chambertin, Clos de Beze and Mazis-Chambertin. 100% whole bunch. This cuvee is made from the domaine's oldest vines - planted in 1903 - hence the name Vigne Centenaire. Deep red. An expressive nose of layered, creamy, red-black fruits. There are raspberries and blackberries, floral notes and some liquoice. The palate caresses with a rich roundness whilst remaining fresh and focused. A wine of texture and always one of my favourites here. One cannot underestimate the character of very old, low cropped vines.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Perriere 2016 
Landed Price $220.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $165.50

marchand-grillot perrier label Darren Harris: Located below Mazis-Chambertin Marchand-Grillot's Perrieres always sings of its terroir. We have layered flavours of cherries and plums but most of all a cool stonyness on the nose. The palate is zippy, fresh and focused with deep flavours and a sense of relative lightness. The tannins are very fine and are coated by the fruit. A tremendous wine in 2016.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petit Chapelle 2016 
Landed Price $263.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $197.50

marchand-grillot petit chapelle label Darren Harris: Fuller on the nose than the Perrieres with red cherries, milk chocolate and spice. Rounder on the palate with a more generous mouth-feel. Silky and rich with the tannins seemingly coated by more of that creamy chocolate-berry character. Seductive!


Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 
Landed Price $689.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $517.50

Marchand-Grillot Ruchottes Label Darren Harris: Nose of red-black fruits, minerals and a little new oak spice. The multitude of layers begins draw you in, makes you think. The palate is silky, complex and beguiling - a continuation of the nose. The fruit is fresh, elegant and concentrated, culminating with a peacock's tail as the wine opens up. Very stylish indeed. A lovely example from this fine Grand Cru vineyard. Only 300 bottles produced.
Did you know that Marchand-Grillot were selected by UNESCO to supply the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin for the process of adding Burgundy to the cultural world heritage list?
If you are a fan of Gevrey-Chambertin and love the intricacies of the Burgundian vineyards this is a domaine you should not miss. Try a range of the lieux-dits. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. These are terroir driven wines at their best. As mentioned above the wines are available at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount until midday tomorrow.
