Bettane and Desseauve are France's top wine critics. Each year they taste and review over 10,000 French Wines.
Late last year I was delighted to receive news that Domaine Bertagna's Clos St-Denis 2016 has received their highest award - being named One of France's Top 10 Wines of the Year. 
And that's not just for Burgundy. It is for all French wines. You can imagine the big names on the list.
It is also worth pointing out that this was the top Red Burgundy of the Year and the only wine from the Cote d'Or in the Top 10.
When I tasted the wine at the domaine earlier last year I was blown away by the complexity and depth. It seems Bettane and Desseauve have the same opinion.
Domaine Bertagna is 21 hectares in size with 18 different appellations. In a normal vintage they have 4 Grand Crus and 7 Premier Crus. 
I have followed the domaine for about 20 years. A year or two back I was offered the opportunity to import the wines. A visit and extensive tasting provided plenty of reasons to add the domaine to our portfolio and we shipped the tremendous 2015 vintage.
Bertagna EvaThe wines were very well received. Their Grand Cru Clos St-Denis along with interesting vineyards like their monopole Vougeot 1er Cru Clos de la Perriere really piqued the interest of Burgundy lovers and sold out rapidly.
In 2016 their top wine again was unquestionably the Clos St-Denis Grand Cru.
The domaine has a significant 0.53 hectares of old vines from which they produce a wine of admirable intensity and complexity.
The Clos St-Denis is deeply coloured, powerful and very ageworthy. Like the 2015 it has much immediate appeal but is really a wine for the cellar.
The 2016 is in stock and to celebrate the award we present it at a 15% discount - the same as if you purchased the wine Pre Arrival. Get some in the cellar and drink over the next 20 years. But be quick, it's almost gone.

Bertagna Denis Label
Bettane and Dessauve: 
One of the 10 Best French Wines of the Year! Top Red Burgundy 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 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).

A Grand Cru for the Ages!

Gold Medal and Trophy for the Best Corton at the International Wine Challenge 2017. "Wild and breezy with bright bramble fruit and a lovely rounded but dense palate. Classic, stony Corton fruit with a lovely balance between richness and invigorating freshness."

Tim Atkin MW: Located in the same clos as the Premier Cru of the same name, this comes from the upper part of the vineyards where the soils are very poor indeed. It's a very pure expression of the Grand Cru, with pepper spice and red berry flavours, chalky acidity and fine tannins, especially for a Corton. 2024-30.

BurghoundAn exceptionally ripe but not roasted or jammy nose is similar if more complex. The velvety, round and equally seductively textured big-bodied flavors possess a bit more overall size, weight and mid-palate concentration while delivering even better length on the powerful and built-to-age finish that, like the nose, is much more complex. Patience required however. (Drink starting 2030). 93 Points
