Almost gone! Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey. Lovely 2016 Volnay Premier Crus at just $99.95 a Bott

Vaudoisey 1er 99 Header
Three top 2016 Premier Crus from Volnay - all under $100 a bottle
 
I'm always on the hunt for quality wines at appealing prices. Last year we imported a little 2015 Volnay from Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey. They were simply delicious.

Earlier this year I visited the domaine and tasted through their full range of 2016's. If anything they are even better - the pure, fresh character of the 2016 vintage really suiting their style.

The Vaudoisey family came to Volnay in 1804. In recent years it is Christophe, the eighth generation, who has taken the domaine to new levels. He took over the domaine from his father in 1985, built a new winery in 2008, and from then on the wines have received many accolades from Guide Hachette and other French publications.

The 2016's have arrived and the three Volnay 1er Crus have almost sold out. We have less than 2 cases of each available.

Today we present the remaining stocks at a 15% discount. These wines are wonderful value at just $99.95 a bottle. Premier Crus are rarely this affordable. Pop a mixed case in the cellar and drink over the next decade.
Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans 2016
Normal Price $117.50
Special $99.95
19 bottles left
Vaudoisey Mitans Label
Les Mitans is a 3.98 hectare vineyard on the eastern side of the village. It was first mentioned in the records in 1236. The vineyard has light, stony topsoil and produces one of Volnay's most elegant and delicate expressions.

Darren Harris: Nose of raspberry, myrtle, violets and smoke. Plenty of dry extract with pure fruit and mineral notes. Lacy. The most elegant of the three 1er Crus with great style and balance.

Producer: With its beautiful dark ruby colour, this wine reveals its charm and seduction thanks to delicate aromas of red fruits. Harmonious on the palate, the tannins are complementary and give an impression at once delicate and sweet. 
Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes 2016
Normal Price $117.50
Special $99.95
19 bottles left
Vaudoisey Chenes Label
Clos des Chenes is both large in size and personality. It is regarded as one of Volnay's top premier crus producing a rich and powerful wine with a nose featuring violets, a signature of this vineyard. Concentrated and built to age.
Darren Harris:  Less aromatic than Le Mitans - this is about structure and power. Earth, spice and minerals. Deep with more defined tannins. Complex, long and built to cellar. Impressive!

Producer: A wine of character dressed in a beautiful intense ruby colour. The nose is clear and precise, on black fruits. The mouth remains supple on beautiful tannins, delicate and dense at the same time with a well structured attack. From a vineyard of more than 80 years, this renowned vintage will require cellaring for 5 to 15 years.
Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets 2016
Normal Price $117.50
Special $99.95
14 bottles left

Vaudoisey Caillerets Label Caillerets is beautifully exposed to the south and east, moderately sloped, and is extremely highly regarded by the locals. As the name suggests the soil is full of small stones which aid drainage and reflect heat.
Darren Harris: Still in barrel. Dark berries, a hint of kirsch, a note of dark chocolate. Cool, pure and fresh. Very complex with stony minerality and long, fine tannins. Quite lovely.

Producer: An elegant wine, with great delicacy, seductive aromas, a dark red colour. Nice complexity that will evolve over time (over 5 to 10 years) to develop at best its typicity.

Chartron Corton Label
Domaine Jean Chartron Corton-Charlemagne 
2013-2016 
4-Bottle Pack
Only 2 available
Founded in 1859 Domaine Jean Chartron produce some of Burgundy's finest whites. The domaine owns some outstanding vines in the Montrachets and a tiny parcel of Corton-Charlemagne. This parcel is only 0.085 of a hectare and in many vintages that makes for just one barrel of wine.
 
With all the interest in the wines from Puligny the Corton-Charlemagne is often forgotten. For me the Corton-Charlemagne is one of the best wines the domaine produces, frequently slotting in behind the Chevalier-Montrachet as the two top wine wines of the vintage.
 
Our 2016's arrive this month and we also have very small quantities of the 2013, 2014 and 2015 in stock. I have consumed all three in the last couple of months with some serious wine friends. Virtually everyone picked the wines as Chevalier-Montrachet with its great intensity and acid spine. Not a bad result for Corton-Charlemagne.

Today I offer 4-Bottle Packs comprising one bottle of each 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. We can only assemble 2 Packs.
 
I would like you to try this wine and to encourage you I offer the Packs at a 25% discount.

Instead of $1684.40 I offer the wines at the special price of $1236.30
 
I really do recommend the wine if you are in to steely, layered, long White Burgundy in the style of Chevalier-Montrachet. If you would like to order a Pack please email me at Darren@grandmillesime.com.au.
