The new Domaine de Varoilles 2017 Burgundies. Pre Arrival Offer. Save 25% this week

Varoilles 2017 PA 25% header
The new 2017's from an outstanding domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin
Many of you purchased the brilliant 2016's from Domaine des Varoilles. So many in fact that we had to reorder.
Today we are delighted to present the new 2017's from this exciting domaine with a super array of Monopoles.

Named after a 12th century Premier Cru vineyard, the Domaine des Varoillles has expanded over the years to cover 10 hectares in 8 special appellations.

The meticulous Gilbert Hammel is in charge of the vineyards which include 4 Monopoles in Gevrey-Chambertin! The Premier Cru Monopoles Clos des Varoilles and La Romanee lie high in the cool combe near Lavaux St-Jacques and Clos St-Jacques and express a beauty and elegance seldom seen in Gevrey-Chambertin.

This is a domaine for those partial to fine Burgundy from very interesting vineyards. And isn't that why we are all fans of Burgundy?

Instead of the usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount until the end of this week you can buy the new 2017's at a 25% discount. That means some extra big savings.

I also point out that there has been no price increase from the previous vintage.

The wine is concentrated, complex, and of a remarkable power. Vin de gard par excellence, it merits 10 to 15 years of patience.

Burgundy Intracacies Dinner header

Understanding the intricacies of Burgundy Dinner
Thursday 26 September at Yagiz
8 Seats left

It is quite a way off but we have had a terrific response to this dinner and only have 10 seats left.

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!

solitude constanza 2015 label
Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Cornelia Constanza MAGNUM 2015
3 available
100% old vine Grenache.
Wine Spectator: This has great energy from the start, with notes of bay leaf, warm brick and juniper leading the way, backed by a solid core of red currant, raspberry and plum coulis flavors. The long finish lets sanguine and iron accents flow through while still leaving plenty of room for the fruit. Best from 2020 through 2035. 96 Points

Normally $348.50
Special $296.25

Bichot Lavaux Label
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux-St-Jacques 2014
9 bottles available

One of the great appellations of the Côte de Nuits both in terms of size and of reputation, Gevrey Chambertin is characterised by a wide variety of different terroirs. No white wines are found here, only pinot noir is cultivated. These vines are situated along the slopes lining the exit of the Lavaux combe and are orientated southeast to east-southeast. The soil is shallow and light with brown limestone on the upper section and brown calcite towards the lower portion. The presence of clay is abundant on thick limestone beds dating to mid- to late-Paleozoic.
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: This rich wine is dense with dark tannins and concentrated structure. The vineyard, with cool winds from the valley behind, gives wines that demand aging with their tannins and fragrant fruit. The aftertaste is full of promise. Drink after 2022.
94 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
Beautifully perfumed nose, exquisitely perfumed over deeper fruit. Large-scaled, faintly saline, a little tannin at the base but also supple, energetic and engagingly complex. What a lovely wine...Mouth watering, almost mouth staining flavour. A bigger, slightly broader wine than the Vosne (1er Cru Malconsorts), and today, maybe better! 93 Points

Special $169.95

Magnien Estournelles label
Domaine Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles St-Jacques 2014
13 bottles available
A small 2.04 hectare vineyard alongside the upper portion of Clos St-Jacques.
Darren Harris:
Deep colour. Nose of cool, red fruits with a mineral tang. Elegant, yet intense palate with fresh red fruits; currant, cherry, a cool floral note and lots of minerals. Not particularly earthy like many Gevreys. The overall impression is a wine of elegance with considerable power lurking below.  Fine and punchy. A lovely wine. 

Normally $249.95
Special $149.95

Roblot-Marchand Croix Champs label
Domaine Roblot-Marchand Gevrey-Chambertin La Croix des Champs 2015 
5 bottles available
A bargain from our Bin Ends List!
Darren Harris: Les Croix des Champs is located on the eastern side of the D974. More weight and power than the Chambolle-Musigny Les Pas de Chats and a different aromatic profile with mineral and earth in addition to the red-black fruits. The palate is racy and fresh with good intensity and fine acidity adding to the finish. I like the vibrancy very much. This too is very representative of its village and a great comparsion with the Chambolle.

Normally $92.95
Special $65.00
