Many of you will have tasted the delightful 2016 Volnays from Domaine Francois Buffet. We didn't have any of the domaine's Bourgogne from 2016 as we discovered the producer too late.

Overnight we secured a parcel of their 2018 Bourgogne. It is hot off the bottling line and will be shipped with our 2017's later this month and will arrive before Christmas.

Domaine François Buffet is a family-run domaine, which dates back to 1692. It is currently managed by Marc-Olivier, son of François, along side his parents who still get involved. He brings passion and expertise to the vineyards and wines, succeeding his father who impressively completed 40 vintages. 

Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report says: "Here are super underground cellars - something of a luxury in Volnay - a warren of rooms, some containing older vintages - "Helpful to offset some of the missing volume from the last years:" says Marc-Olivier Buffet. These are damp cellars like Lafarge - don't touch something for a while and it will disappear under the penecillium....

Buffet's Bourgogne is produced from fruit grown in Volnay - a great region for Bourgogne as those of you purchased the Bouley and Vaudoisey 2016 Bourgogne will appreciate. The 2018 vintage has been received very favourably with Decanter Magazine saying "There are whispers that Burgundy 2018 could become one of the region's all-time great vintages." Time will tell.

For the moment we present this super Bourgogne from the 2018 vintage at a remarkable price. Pay of $34.17 a bottle by the case. Don't miss it!

Cheron Dinner header

Domaine Philippe Cheron Dinner. Tuesday 22 October at Pope Joan
Last 4 seats

In the late 1930's, Paul Misset, Philippe Cheron's grandfather, acquired parcels of vines in the Vougeot and Nuits Saint Georges communes. Not being a wine-grower, he entrusted their management to tenant wine growers in Vosne-Romanée. Starting with these original parcels, Paul Misset's grandchildren, two generations later, have built up a wine domaine which today covers 5 hectares, spread over the Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanée, Chambolle Musigny and Clos de Vougeot appellations.

The domaine's winery and cellars are located in the historical centre of Nuits Saint Georges. The vaulted 19th century cellars allow the wines to be aged in perfect conditions and the modern, efficient winery has recently been totally refurbished.

After working as technical director at Domaine Jean-Claude Belland in Santenay, Philippe Cheron took over the family estate in 2011. A trained engineer, he studied at the wine university in Suze la Rousse before gaining important experience making wine in the Rhône valley and then Burgundy. To round off this experience, he also took an agricultural training course at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune.

I have had the pleasure of tasting at the domaine for a few vintages and starting with 2015 we decided to import the wines of this small domaine. I have experienced Philippe's growing expertise and seen how successive vintages how become more spectacular. His Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Murgers 2016 was one of the most stunning wines I have ever tasted from barrel.

Being only 5 hectares in size this is a domaine that does not produce a lot of wine. In small vintages the quantity becomes even more restricted. Factor in low cropping old vines and we see production can be as little as just two barrels - less than 600 bottles for wine aficionados across the globe.

This dinner features 11 wines from Domaine Philippe Cheron from the 2016 and 2015 vintages. It includes the once-only Chambolle-Musigny Tirage 3096 Bottles 2016 - a product of the hail that ravaged Chambolle-Musigny in 2016 and necessitated the production of just one Chambolle cuvee that vintage, the outstanding Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Aux Murgers 2016, the first vintage of this wine following the return of vineyards to the domaine, and the Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2015 from vines in the climat of Les Hautes Baudes.

We'll also compare Vosne-Romanee Les Barreaux, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrees and Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnet from 2016 and 2015.
