Save $78.50 on 2 Special 1er Cru Pommard That's almost Half Price!

We all love a bargain and what better way to finish the week than with a super offer on two serious wines. 
In the past it was not common to describe Pommard as stylish. The wines were big, meaty and tannic. However, just as has occured in Aloxe-Corton, many makers of Pommard have found their mojo and are making wines that are fine and simply more delicious.
One of these is Domaine Launay-Horiot. This is a very exciting new domaine with some wonderful vineyard holdings. 
Today we have a very special offer on the Pommard 1er Cru Les Chaponnieres and Clos Blanc 2014. 

Les Chaponnieres is a small vineyard (2.87 hectares) lying below Les Rugiens Bas. Jasper Morris MW says it is "an excellent site". 

Clos Blanc (4.18 ha) is located next to Les Grands Epenots. The soil is perhaps a little whiter here which could be the reason for the name.

The 2014 vintage has produced wonderful reds that are classically styled with concentration and intensity. 2014 was also the first commercial release from Domaine Launay-Horiot and as such is something of a collector's item.

Quantities remaining are small. Mix and match and pop a case in the cellar to drink over the next decade.
Almost Half Price!

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: 
The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru Les Charponnières, a 0.6-hectare holding, has more red fruit on the nose compared to the Pommard Les Perrières, wild strawberry and raspberry preserve, quite expressive with subtle sous-bois scents. The palate is medium-bodied with brisk red berry fruit on the entry. Saline in the mouth, masculine perhaps but with ample red fruit on the citric finish, this is a well-crafted Pommard that should give much pleasure over the next decade. 90 Points

Wineloversoftheworldunite: Floral nose with violets and cherries. Very fine and so silky with wonderful sweetness. The finishing made me call a NSG from a Vosne maker. A very stylish Pommard. Well done Mr ex-fighter pilot!

Launay-Horiot Clos Blanc NV Label
Bettane and Desseauve:
Full, rich, with a height and generous volume, this impresses with its precision and their fine balance between fruit maturity, firm and soft tannins, and the tonicity of its vibratory acidity. Bottles can be devoured today or will seduce for the next 6 to 10 years. 17/20

Tim Atkin MW: 93 Points

Berthelemot Abbaye Label 2

Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot 2016
18 bottles left

Around 1550 Cistercian monks from the Abbey of Maizieres built the Morgeot Abbey in the hamlet of Chassagne-Montrachet.

Today, the Abbey is uninhabited and in decay but it lends its name to the vineyards surrounding it which in effect lie within the 1er Crus Morgeot and La Chapelle.

The soil here is limestone marl, red-tinted with ferrous oxides on a layer of bathonian limestone pebbles. Unlike much of Morgeot this part of the vineyard was traditionally a white wine site. It produces a more mineral wine than most of Morgeot hence the reason that it is labelled with more detail.

In 2011 Domaine Berthelemot purchased a 0.5316 hectare parcel in this interesting vineyard.
Darren Harris: Vibrant nose of white peach, flowers and white stone. Quite powerful. The palate walks a line between fullness and body and minerals and acidity. Long and stoney on the finish with excellent persistence. Dry and mouth filling. There's plenty to enjoy here. 

Normally $143.95
Special $107.95
