Bichot 2016 Amoureuses 11 left header
A must-have wine for all serious Burgundy Cellars
Almost Gone!
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses is one of Burgundy's most desirable wines. Despite being a Premier Cru its magnificent aroma and complex, silky palate make a wine of reverence.

Les Amoureuses produces magnificent, aromatic, complex and supple wines that outperform many Grand Crus. Accordingly, it is priced like a Grand Cru. The vineyard is 5.4 hectares in size and there are not a lot of producers. Clive Coates states "This is a vineyard which, like Clos St Jacques in Gevrey-Chambertin, is regarded by most - and priced accordingly - as the equal of a grand cru.... I regularly prefer it to Bonnes-Mares. But Bonnes-Mares it is not. Les Amoureuses is really a sort of younger brother to Musigny itself: perfumed, silky-smooth, intense and soft rather than brutal and muscular, and with real finesse".

Bichot typically make just a single barrel (280-300 bottles) of this wine so it is certainly on the Rare list in any vintage!
The vineyard belongs to Alain Serveau, Bichot's head winemaker (shown at at centre with Alberic Bichot to his left). The Bichot team won Red Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge 2017.
The wine is available at Pre Arrival Price saving you 15%. Only 11 bottles remain from our allocation.

Tim Atkin MW: 
In one sense, this is barely a négociant wine since the grapes are purchased from Alain Serveau, Bichot's long-term winemaker. It's a wonderful expression of this famous Grand Cru in all but name, with some whole bunch sap, lacy tannins, and the kind of sweet, succulent berry fruit that drives Pinotphiles wild. 2022-30. 96 Points

Frantin 2016 Malconsorts Header
Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2016 
The Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts is probably our biggest selling serious Burgundy. The location of the vineyard alongside La Tache makes for serious, age-worthy wines that are often equal or better than many Grand Crus.
 
The domaine is the largest owner of Malconsorts, with a 1.7766 ha plot located in the middle of the vineyard. Maison Albert Bichot has owned the plot of Aux Malconsorts since 1964, when they acquired the Grivelet estate including vineyards and the Clos Frantin chai and mansion in Vosne-Romanee.
James Suckling Tasting Report:
Beautiful crushed roses with an array of fresh raspberries and red cherries, as well as light mocha and oak spices in the background. The palate has excellent tannin maturity and depth. A bold, explosive finish. This is exceptional. This elegant vintage has delivered a wine with real clarity and detail. But still needs some time. Try from 2024. 94-95 Points
Tim Atkin MW: 
The Bichot holdings run to 1.75 hectares and cover both the upper and lower parts of the Premier Cru. This is a sturdy, almost austere expression of the site with serious tannins, dense, chewy black fruits and a touch of mint. Very well made, but needs considerable time in bottle. 2028-38. 94 Points
