Chambertin: The King of Wines and the Wine of Kings
Legend has it that Chambertin was originally a field (champ) that belonged to a certain Mr Bertin. It is said that Bertin planted the same grape varieties in his field as the monks from Bèze and that the wine he produced was so perfect that the other growers called the newly created vineyard by the name of its owner, "Champ de Bertin" which later on became "Chambertin."
There are not too many opportunites to buy Le Chambertin. There are not a huge number of makers and many have small holdings. Most of all there is huge demand for the wine.
Domaine du Clos Frantin own a tiny 0.17 ha slice. At Grand Cru cropping levels that does not result in a lot of wine.
For today only, we offer a 15% discount on the majestic 2010.

Burghound: This is also notably elegant and very cool with a perfumed if reticent nose comprised of wet stone, underbrush, wild red berry fruit and pungent earth aromas. The mouth coating and broad-shouldered flavors ooze with a very fine minerality that continues onto the austere, focused, linear and almost painfully intense finish that delivers spectacular length. Like several of the wines in the range, this is a classic example of the appellation. 92-94
