Domaine Jerome Castagnier. Wines from the Cellar 2011-2016 Dinner at Ocha. Thursday 20 February 2020

Castagnier Cellar Dinner Ocha 2
Burgundy in all its glory!
We've raided the cellar. Compare the same wine from multiple vintages at this special dinner
We get quite a few requests for events featuring wines with some bottle age. So we've decided to raid the cellar and assemble a dinner featuring several vertical brackets. 

Domaine Castagnier is one of our most popular producers and we have a good selection of wines in our museum holdings.

Jerome Castagnier was 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. 
 
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.
 
We have a nice reserve of back vintages and I thought it would be opportune to present a selection of wines from Bourgogne to Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru.

So we will start with Jerome's Puligny-Montrachet blanc then move to a pair of the delicious Bourgogne followed by a brace of Jerome's Gevrey-Chambertin Villages. 

The we will taste two brackets of Premier Cru Reds. The first bracket features three consecutive vintages of Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Aux Cheseaux. As with Echezeaux in Flagey the origin of this vineyard name is from the ancient word for buildings. The vineyard lies right on the Gevrey border and part adjoins the Grand Cru Mazoyeres-Chambertin. It is a small vineyard of 1.49 hectares. It is not well known but it is a seriously good vineyard.

The second Premier Cru bracket is Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers. This is one of Gevrey's best Premier Crus. It is located in the Combe de Lavaux alongside Clos St-Jacques. It is steep, stony and exposed due east. The resulting wines are elegant, precise and complex. Once again we have three consecutive vintages.

And to finish a trio of Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, a favourite of Jancis Robinson, produced from a small parcel of very old vines.

The dinner provides an unique opportunity to taste the same wine from multiple vintages. 

The dinner will be at Ocha in Hawthorn.

NSD 2016 Dinner Yagiz

The Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges. 12 Different Vineyards from 2016. Monday 3 February at Yagiz

A trek throught the Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges
 
We often speak about the different sections of Nuits-St-Georges and how distinct they are. With no Grand Crus (at least for the moment) the commune relies on 41 Premier Crus for its reputation. 
 
These vineyards fall into three sectors. At the far south, in Premeaux-Prissey, are ten Premier Crus. In my opinion these are in general the least interesting wines. They can be lean and tannic and much care is required to ensure the wines remain balanced.
 
The second sector is just south of the village of Nuits-St-Georges. The wines produced here are rich and powerful. They are naturally tannic but have the fruit weight to ensure balance is not an issue. Les St-Georges and Vaucrains have applied for elevation to Grand Cru status. In good vintages there is a valid argument. Time will tell.
 
At the far north on the Vosne-Romanee border are the third group. The wines here are finer and more aromatic combining characteristics of Nuits and Vosne. These are popular and quite charming with more spice than the vineyards to the south.
 
In Nuits-St-Georges, perhaps more than anywhere else, a knowledge of the vineyards is worth its weight in gold.
 
Our Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges 2016 Dinner features 12 different vineyards from these two top sectors. The wines come from 4 different producers. It is quite a superb array of wines. To view a map of the vineyards of Nuits-St-Georges click here.
 
The dinner will be at Yagiz in South Yarra. We only have 12 seats available so please book in quickly.
