Save 15% Today

Marchand-Grillot has become both a personal favourite of mine and of our clients. The domaine has a wonderful array of vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin. In 2016 the domaine lost around 50% of their potential production yet they have managed to produce all cuvees except for the Gevrey-Chambertin En Jouise. 
Jacques Marchand is the seventh generation of his family to be involved in wine. Located in Gevrey-Chambertin this domaine owns an exciting range of vineyards. Their 9 hectares are spread across 47 different plots! In addition to Premier and Grand Cru holdings the domaine is one the few to bottle a selection of lieu-dits. These wines are particularly exciting as today the general practice is to blend these vineyards into a generic wine.

The style at Marchand-Grillot is fine and aromatic. The idea is to let the terroir speak and in 2016 that was easy to do.

Don't miss the Gevrey lieux-dits, the ancient vine Champerrier or the two Premier CrusAll wines are available at a 15% discount today. Mix and match as you please.

Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Velle 2016
Normally $144.50
Special $122.50
20 bottles left

marchand-grillot Au velle label
Darren Harris: Nose of dark fruits, marzipan, minerals and coconut. Cool. Opens in the glass to display a complex palate with fresh juice and a tight, restrained power. Always light on its feet the 2016 Au Velle displays the all the expected character of this well-sited vineyard (alongside the 1er Cru Les Cazetiers and Les Champeaux).
Gevrey-Chambertin En Creot 2016
Normally $152.95
Special $129.95
13 bottles left

marchand-grillot creot label
Darren Harris: From the Brochon side. Red with a hint of garnet. This is the darkest and deepest of the three regular lieu-dits in 2016. There are notes of raspberry and dark chocolate with a rich and juicy fresh palate that is so 2016. There is a fine line of acid through the wine. Powerful and intense.

Gevrey-Chambertin En Songe 2016
Normally $144.50
Special $122.50
2 bottles left

marchand-grillot en songe label Darren Harris: A little more aromatic and open than Aux Velle with a classic Gevrey nose of cherry, raspberry and some mineral earth. The palate has a roundness and gentle plushness with excellent extract before firming up on the finish.




Gevrey-Chambertin Champerrier Vigne Centenaire 2016
Normally $199.50
Special $169.50
12 bottles left

Marchand-Grillot Champerrier label Darren Harris: On the same contour as Chambertin, Clos de Beze and Mazis-Chambertin. 100% whole bunch. This cuvee is made from the domaine's oldest vines - planted in 1903 - hence the name Vigne Centenaire. Deep red. An expressive nose of layered, creamy, red-black fruits. There are raspberries and blackberries, floral notes and some liquoice. The palate caresses with a rich roundness whilst remaining fresh and focused. A wine of texture and always one of my favourites here. One cannot underestimate the character of very old, low cropped vines.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Perriere 2016 
Normally $220.95
Special $187.50
18 bottles left

marchand-grillot perrier label Darren Harris: Located below Mazis-Chambertin Marchand-Grillot's Perrieres always sings of its terroir. We have layered flavours of cherries and plums but most of all a cool stonyness on the nose. The palate is zippy, fresh and focused with deep flavours and a sense of relative lightness. The tannins are very fine and are coated by the fruit. A tremendous wine in 2016.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2016 
Normally $263.50
Special $224.00
8 bottles left

marchand-grillot petit chapelle label Darren Harris: Fuller on the nose than the Perrieres with red cherries, milk chocolate and spice. Rounder on the palate with a more generous mouth-feel. Silky and rich with the tannins seemingly coated by more of that creamy chocolate-berry character. Seductive!

Castagnier Morey label
Domaine Jerome Castagnier Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Aux Cheseaux 2016
5 bottles left
A lovely vineyard on the Gevrey border.
Jasper Morris MW: Rich dense concentrated purple, plenty of oak but the fruit easily wins, incredible density. Ripe dark cherries, plums, dark raspberries, a nice touch of oak, rich but absolutely beautiful, and the finish is exceptional. 
94 Points
Darren Harris: From the moment the wine is poured you sense there is something special here. The colour is a very vibrant red-purple. And the nose - it is very aromatic with plums, violets, raspberries, spice and much more. If that wasn't enough the palate goes one step further - it is deep, layered and complex with juicy fruit and an unbelievably silky mouthfeel. This is 2016 at its finest. It is a great wine.

Chartron St-Aubin Perrieres header
Domaine Jean Chartron St Aubin 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2017

From a top white vintage!
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": In the 2016 vintage, the Perrières vineyard was the far more heavily-damaged parcels in St. Aubin from Jean-Michel, and I was very happy to see the wine showing so beautifully this year. The nose is pure and complex, jumping from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, pastry cream, lovely limestone minerality, a touch of fresh almond, vanillin oak and a top note of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and very refined, with a fine core, lovely balance and grip and a long, focused and classy finish. 2018-2045+. 91+ Points
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin:
The 2017 Saint-Aubin Les Perrières 1er Cru matures in 25% new oak, has a wonderful, expressive bouquet with scents of green apple, linden, peppermint and sage, very complex and vibrant. The palate is very well balanced and lively, well-judged acidity that cuts through what is a spicy Saint-Aubin with a tang of lemongrass that pops up on the finish. Almost delicious enough to drink now! 2021-2034. 90-92 Points

Darren Harris: An engaging nose of green apple, stony minerals, creme pattisiere and a backnote of mint. It is elegant and piercing. After the refinement of the nose the palate is surpringly expansive. There is considerable body and intensity with creamy, mineral-inflected fruit with tangy citrus notes. The acid is fresh and really lifts the finish. St-Aubin has come a long way in the last decade.

Seguin-Manuel Echezeaux label
Seguin-Manuel Echezeaux Grand Cru 2015
2 bottles left
From the climat of En Orveaux.
Darren Harris: Just a single barrel in 2015. New oak. From En Orveaux. Just about to be bottled. Elegant and deep nose of black-red fruit and a hint of toasty new oak. The palate manages to show power and finesse at the same time which is a hallmark of serious Burgundy. Terrific length. Really very impressive. The style of the vintage 2015 has produced many quality Echezeaux and this is a top example.

Normally $430.50
Special $365.90
