Three Burgundies from our next container that you really should have in the cellar

 

3 Burgundies Cellar Header
Three wines you should have from our next container

The ship carrying our latest refrigerated container is expected to dock in Melbourne today.

It has thousands of bottles of Burgundy and a few other gems from around Europe.

There are three wines in the container that I think all serious Burgundy lovers should have in their cellar. They are not Grand Crus, nor are they the most expensive examples of their type. They are however, three wines that impressed me tremendously during my last 3 week tasting marathon in Burgundy.

I know many of you have already purchased these wines but if you haven't you have one last chance to buy the wines at our Pre Arrival Prices. The quantities still available are very small so don't delay.

Domaine Philippe Cheron Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers 2016 
Landed Price $197.50
Pre Arrival Price $167.95
27 bottles available

Cheron NSG Murgers label
Darren Harris: April 2017: The first vintage of this wine as the vines have returned from a long-term rental arrangement. 80 year old vines. 100% whole bunch. Jumps out of the glass. Unbelievable aromatics! Red-black, racy, lifted nose of cherry and spice with many layer below. Intense, deep, mineral. Superb acidity. Very Vosne-Romanee! Buy! The most impressive wine of the trip. 
November 2017:
 Is it possible that this wine is even better than when I tasted it seven months ago? The depth of colour is something to behold. The nose is exotic in the same way that makes La Tache so special. Lifted aromatics of Asian spice, tea and small tight fruits. Complex under notes from the whole bunch. Gosh this is good. If Philippe told me it was Grand Cru Vosne I would believe him. Absolutely Grand Cru quality. An exceptional wine.

Domaine A & S Vosne-Romanee 2016 
Landed Price $180.95
Pre Arrival Price $135.50
17 bottles available

AS Vosne Label
Darren Harris:
A gift from Arnaud's grandfather. This parcel of Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux lies in the area partly surrounded by the 1er Crus Les Petits Monts and Cros Parantoux, just up the slope from Richebourg. It is a super site further enhanced by the fact that the vines are old - between 50 and 60 years of age. Arnaud and Sophie's very first wine is a killer! Not surprising with the family history at domaines Sirugue and Georges Noellat. Yet the young couple have decided to make the wine their own way using the experience gained both in Burgundy and abroad.
 
They have used 50% whole bunch (more than their respective family domaines) and 40% new oak. There has been little intervention - the quality and style of the vineyard allowed to shine through. Whilst their family domaines had both bottled, the Domaine A&S Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux was still in barrel when I visited late March 2018.
 
Deep red. Expressive, layered nose of dark cherry, violets and Asian spice with a discreet note of new oak. The palate is very fresh and displays the same character with a rich, velvety texture no doubt from the old vines. Intense and focused. This has the extract and mouthfeel of a top Vosne Premier Cru finishing with serious length from ripe, refined tannins suggesting a great future ahead .  An outstanding first release and I urge all Vosne lovers to grab a few bottles or more. Not only will you have a super wine but you will have priority for future releases.
Domaine Jean Chauvenet Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2016 
Landed Price $199.95
Pre Arrival Price $169.95
25 bottles available

chauvenet Perrieres label new
Darren Harris: Chauvenet own parcels in seven Nuits Premier Crus including Les Vaucrains, Les Damodes and Les Bousselots but it is their small 0.23 hectare parcel in Les Perrieres that has me gob-smacked in 2016. The wine combines red and black fruits in a lifted, aromatic nose with minerals in spades. It is fresh and vibrant yet deeply flavoured with subtle spices playing in the background. 1/3 new oak contributes to the freshness and ensures the wine remains lifted and aromatic. This is really fine NSG Premier Cru with an elegant character yet never losing its stamp of origin. Only 3 barrels produced in 2016. Very fine quality.

Burgundy Dinner Corcia Sydney header
 
Dinner with Patricia Corcia, Burgundy Exporter at Fix Wine Bar + Restaurant Sydney
 
Not everyone in Burgundy does things the same way. In the past the domaines, negociants and wholesalers held stocks of aged wines to supply the trade. However, financial pressures have seen this service all but disappear.
 
However, there still remains a small band of Burgundians who do base at least part of their business on aged wines. Prestige des Grands Vins de France are one such business. Patricia Corcia, the General Manager, will be in Australia at the end of October and will host a dinner featuring a selection of wines from their portfolio.
 
The wines will span 4 decades with the youngest being from 2017 and the oldest from 1976. All have come direct from the domaines.
 
This is a great opportunity to sample some aged bottles including three Grand Cru Reds.
