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.

I made my first visit to the Domaine earlier this year. I am super glad I did. From Bourgogne up to their Grand Crus the 2016's were universally high class. New oak is used judiciously ensuring that the vineyards are allowed to speak. The problem is that like virtually all Burgundy producers their crop was very small and quantities available were limited. 

But such was the quality I did something I don't often do. I ordered on the spot. Of the 6 cuvees they had available I purchased the remaining stocks of 4. That included the last bottles of the Grand Cru white Corton-Charlemagne and red Corton Paulands.

What I haven't mentioned so far is the price. These wines are at prices not seen for years. But don't tell anyone.

As a new addition to our website I offer the wines at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount. If you don't jump on these you are crazy. A 2016 Grand Cru Red for $116.95 a bottle. What can I say? Be quick, there is not a lot left.
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $198.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $148.95

denis pere corton charlemagne label
Darren Harris: From 3 parcels in En Charlemagne. 30% new oak. Delightful nose of citrus, crushed rock and flowers. Pervasive yet elegant. Clean, fresh and very vibrant on the palate with the oak swallowed up by the fruit. The chiseled finish is classic Corton-Charlemagne. Refined and textured. A great example.
Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $155.95
Special Pre Arrival $116.95
36 bottles left
denis pere paulands label
Darren Harris:  Les Paulands is an interesting vineyard. It is the only vineyard that I know of that has Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Villages appellations. It is only 1.05 hectares in size and the majority of that belongs to the Comte Senard. 2 barrels produced, 50% new oak. Lifted, floral nose of small red-black fruits. Punchy in the middle with acidity and freshness. Sleekly muscled with long, defined tannins driving the wine to its climax. Cellar for 5 years then investigate. Cheaper than most Premier Crus!
