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 a couple of years ago. 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
10 bottles left

Bertagna Denis Label
Bettane and Desseauve:
One of the 10 Best French Wines of the Year!
The most profound Clos St-Denis of our tasting in a vintage particularly favourable to this climat. Very dark fruit, structure, huge power and mouthfeel with a most complex finish. Incredible breed - a lot to experience - an undeniable success in 2016. 19/20

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
10 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
24 bottles left
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.

Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: This vineyard, wholly owned by the producer, lies next to the north end of Clos de Vougeot. Old vines and low yields give the wine a dense texture. The ripe, smoky character is dark, firm and needs several years more aging. Drink from 2024. 93 Points

Vougeot 1er Cru Les Petits Vougeot 2016
Normal Price $239.95
Special $206.95
22 bottles left

Bertagna Petit Vougeot label Darren Harris: Alongside Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses, Bertagna own a sizeable 1.26 chunk of Les Petits Vougeot. Deep red. Nose of red fruits, smoke, minerals with a touch of vanilla spice and liquorice. There is a very appealing roundness to the palate which carries to the long and full finish.

Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts 2015
Normal Price $229.95
Special $195.50
4 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
23 bottles left

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.

Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: From one of the premier cru vineyards that surround the cluster of legendary Grand Crus in Vosne-Romanée, this opulent wine is rich with perfumed red fruits, with hints of wood aging showing in the smoky character. Acidity gives freshness to a wine that needs to age. Drink from 2024. 94 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers 2015
Normal Price $229.95
Special $195.50
14 bottles left
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

Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers 2016
Normal Price $239.95
Special $206.95
5 bottles left

Bertagna Murgers label Darren Harris: 
Bertagna own 1 hectare of the total of 4.89. 30% whole bunch, 50% new oak. Very deep purple. Nose of black cherry, plums and woody spice. Complex and deep with that delightful mix of Nuits and Vosne that Les Murgers typically displays. Powerful, dry and structured.
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Plantes 2016
Normal Price $239.95
Special $206.95
4 bottles left

Bertagna Chambolle Plantes label Darren Harris: Les Plantes is alongside the 1er Cru Les Charmes. Bertagna have 0.23 ha. 100% destemmed, 50% new oak. Saturated purple in colour. An expansive nose with more width than Les Village. The palate is quite closed with cool red fruits and mineral notes. This needs a bit of time in bottle to blossom but has the makings of a serious Chambolle 1er Cru. 
Chambolle-Musigny Le Village 2016
Normal Price $151.95
Special $128.95
20 bottles left

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.

Haute Cotes de Nuits Dame Huguettes 2015
Normal Price $54.95
Special $46.70
11 bottles left
Bertagna Huguettes label Darren Harris: Located in the commune of Nuits-St-Georges this vineyard has a reputation for high quality Hautes Cotes de Nuits. Medium colour. Intense nose of red fruits with considerable depth and power. Rich and gravelly on the palate. Drinks well above its appellation. Well worth a look as it is priced at below many generic Bourgogne which deliver far less bang for your dollar.

Castagnier 2016 Dinner Ocha
Domaine Jerome Castagnier 2016 Dinner at Ocha
Thursday 5 September 2019

Jerome Castagnier is one of the most interesting producers in our portfolio. Originally a professional trumpet player with the Guard Republicain, the national band of France, Jerome took over the family domaine just over a decade ago. Armed with a raft of great vineyards he has turned Domaine Castagnier into a rising star. Even so, the domaine deserves even more attention than it currently receives.
 
A few years ago he was awarded Young Winemaker of the Year. Always smiling and with a super sense of humour, Jerome found this quite amusing as he felt he was a little too old to be Young Winemaker. Never-the-less it further confirmed his status in Burgundy.
 
It has been three years since we have presented a Castagnier Wine Dinner. The gorgeous new 2016's have just arrived and I thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase Jerome's wines again.
 
We'll start with a pair of Whites from Puligny-Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne. Then we'll progress from Coteaux Bourguignons up to 4 red Grand Crus with numerous stops along the way.
 
There are 5 Grand Crus in this dinner and I don't need to emphasize that this is a very good opportunity to savour wines that are becoming increasingly expensive.
 
We only have 12 seats for this dinner so if you'd like to book in and taste these wines over a lovely dinner at Ocha please do so quickly.
 
The wine list:
 
Puligny-Montrachet 2016 
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016

Bourgogne Rouge 2016

Burgundy Intracacies Dinner header

Understanding the intricacies of Burgundy Dinner
Thursday 26 September 2019 at Yagiz

Discover your inner Burgundy...
 
How do you learn more about Burgundy? Reading is informative and a trip to the vineyards can be very constructive. But nothing is better than tasting and comparing wines and talking about them with like minded, enthusiastic wine lovers.

Our Understanding the intricacies of Burgundy Dinner is going to do just that.

We have assembled 7 Pairs of wines. Each Pair has everything in common - well, except for one variable. 

The difference might be maker, vintage, vineyard or level. But apart from that one element the wines are fundamentally the same - at least on the surface.

We will taste and compare each Pair of wines and discuss what makes the wines different. It should be a great exercise and I am sure will increase everyone's understanding of the intricacies of Burgundy. We'll do it over dinner at Yagiz where the food will be a great counterpoint to the wine.

School was never this much fun!
