Serious 2015 and 2016 Burgundies from Domaine Bertagna. Save 15%. In Stock Now

 

Bertagna 2015 2016 15% Header
Seriously good Red Burgundies from 2015 and 2016. Built to cellar!
 
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 2016's have arrived and we now have a selection of wines in stock from the twin vintages 2015 and 2016.
The domaine has a fine portfolio from generic Burgundy, through a clutch of top Premier Crus to five Grand Crus. 
Today we present the wines at a 15% discount. Please be mindful that the extreme frost of 2016 has meant quantities of wines are severely reduced. 

Clos St-Denis Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $458.95
Special $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
Normal Price $442.95
Special $376.50
12 bottles left

Bertagna Corton 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
Normal Price $239.95
Special $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 2015
Normal Price $229.95
Special $195.50
13 bottles left

Bertagna Beaux Monts Label
Darren Harris: 
Extremely deep colour. Rich and powerful nose of black cherry, violets, spice and Asian tea. Sleek and rich in the mouth with excellent definition and significant muscle. Complex fruits and spices mingle with florals and dusty new oak (the wine saw 50%). Persistent and long with a mineral-infused spine and fine-grained tannins. This is a serious wine that is built to cellar.

Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: 
From one of the grandest premiers crus, this wine is dense and rich. With great fruit tones and finely integrated wood, it is complex, beautifully balanced and shows great intensity. The juicy red fruits are shot through by firm tannins that will soften as it matures. Drink from 2025. 94 Points
 
Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2016
Normal Price $239.95
Special $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.

Special $195.50

Bertagna Murgers label Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss
This young, richly structured wine comes from a vineyard to the north of the town of Nuits Saint-Georges. It is powered by spice and toast from wood aging that are balanced by the ripe red-plum fruits and acidity. The combination is going to produced an impressive, foursquare wine as it ages. Drink from 2024. 93 Points

Cask sample. Wonderful spicy aromas, plus smoked almond, dark chocolate and rich, sumptuous cherry fruit. Immense fragrance on the finish. The oak is in the ascendancy right now, but it definitely has the fruit power to last. 17.5/20
