One of the things I love about Burgundy is that nothing stays constant. Domaines rise and fall. However, in recent years more are on the rise than decline as estates gather knowledge from far afield, often by way of their travel-wise children. Quality (and prices) continue to rise but prices still look reasonable when compared to First-Growth Bordeaux.
I have been drinking Burgundy for around 35 years. I have a snapshot in my mind about many producers based on their efforts of 10 or maybe 20 years ago. I am pleased to say I am often wrong. The new generation, or perhaps simply a new winemaker, has breathed life into many a domaine. 
Bertagna Perriere Gate I have to say Domaine Bertagna fits into the latter category. We happily added the domaine to our portfolio last year. The 2015's were exceptional wines and the 2016's will follow them up magnificently. 2016 is a more classic year - stylish and lower in alcohol than 2015. 
The domaine has a fine portfolio from generic Burgundy, through a clutch of top Premier Crus to five Grand Crus. Unfortunately, due to the frost in 2016 there is no Chambertin Grand Cru. I have added my tasting notes for all of the wines. The Clos St-Denis and Vougeot 1er Cru Clos de la Perriere Monopole are stunners in 2016.
All wines are available at a 15% Pre Arrival Discount. Please be mindful that the extreme frost of 2016 has meant quantities of wines are severely reduced. We have less than a case of some wines still available.

Clos St-Denis Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $458.95
Pre Arrival Price $389.95

Bertagna Denis Label Darren Harris: 
Very dense red-purple. An enticing nose of bright, fresh fruit, with much spice and a touch of graphite. The palate is multi-layered with deep fruit flavours and more spicy elements. Intense but not heavy. There is oak but it is coated by such tremendous fruit that the impression is of silkiness. Balanced and precise with a tangy citric note that Bertagna (and indeed most Clos St-Denis) shows every vintage. From 50 year old vines and built to age. My favourite wine at Bertagna (again).

Corton Les Grandes Lolieres Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $442.95
Pre Arrival Price $376.50

Bertagna Corton Lolieres label Darren Harris: 
A 0.25 hectare parcel. 100% new oak. Deep purple. Spice, smoke, liquorice, cherry, blueberry and a lot of minerals. Masses of extract. A strong, but not heavy wine, with sinewy and very long tannins. The Corton Les Grandes Lolieres is something of a forgotten gem in the Bertagna portfolio. It has a lot to offer for those willing to forget it in the cellar for a decade. A great followup to the magnificent 2015.

Vougeot 1er Cru Clos de la Perriere Monopole 2016
Landed Price $239.95
Pre Arrival Price $206.95
Bertagna Vougeot Perriere label Darren Harris: 
A monopoly of the domaine measuring a substantial 2.2 hectares in size. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by Musigny, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses and Clos Vougeot. Complex nose displaying wild strawberry, violets and an array of spices and herbs. Multi-layered with an enticing note of musk in the background. Texturally interesting with a long, refined finish displaying minerals and fine grained tannin. This is always one of the most intellectual wines at Bertagna that seems to combine a little of the three serious vineyards that surround it.
Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2016
Landed Price $239.95
Pre Arrival Price $206.95

Bertagna Beaux Monts Label Darren Harris: 
From a 0.92 hectare holding. Deep colour. Spicy Vosne nose with cherries, violets and considerable five spice. Complex and multi-layerd with floral elements alongside the spice. Sleek and concentrated in the mouth with excellent presence. Finishes extremely long with the discreet but present tannins buried beneath the fruit. Very good indeed.

Chambolle-Musigny Le Village 2016
Landed Price $151.95
Pre Arrival Price $128.95
Bertagna Chambolle Village Darren Harris: 
From a single parcel in the lieu-dit Le Village which adjoins the 1er Crus Les Feusselottes and Les Carrieres. Old vines - 2/3 are 70+ years old. Deep red-purple. Very lifted aromatic nose with spicy red fruit. The palate displays the same character with minerals and spice and a wonderful freshness. Good weight. Finishes long with a little tannin on the end. The old vines ensure that this is always a high class Villages Chambolle.
