Right Place, Right Time...

 

I visited Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot yesterday and tasted the entire range of 2011 and 2012 wines.

 

This small domaine produces some terrific wines at very appealing prices. They are expanding and in 2012 will have four new cuvees: Puligny-Montrachet Les Levrons, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot in white and Santenay 1er Cru La Maladiere in red. Not bad acquisitions when quality vineyards are in great demand.

 

I happened to notice on their price list that Beaune 1er Cru Belissand 2010 rouge was on special. The reason is that they have decided to thin down their Beaune holdings with the arrival of the four new appellations.

 

The wine was at a bargain price and when I said I would take everything another small discount was given. 

  

To be honest the wine was a steal. Where else can you buy Premier Cru Beaune from the great 2010 vintage for the price of generic Bourgogne (no where, I suspect!).

  

Here's our offer....

  

Domaine Brigitte Berthelemot Beaune 

1er Cru Belissand 2010

Normally $49.95 a bottle

Incredible Special Offer $396.00 a Case of 12 (=$33.00 a bottle!). Full Case lots only

  

Berthelemot Belissand Label A tiny plot of just 0.28 hectares planted in 1966. The soil is clay and limestone which is well drained despite the plot being at the foot of the slope.  

  

My original note from 2011: Red-black. Cherries, marzipan and spices. Fresh and aromatic. Plenty of tannin and acidity with lengtrh and drive. A stylish Beaune and just terrific value for a Premier Cru.

 

The wine has not really changed. It is not a heavy weight Beaune with excessive tannin. It has fine, pure fruit and drinks well now but would also appreciate some time in the cellar.

 

This wine is remarkable value! 

 

We only have 20 Cases available so first-in. first served. We do recommend website orders over the weekend.

They're always good value and in recent years the quality has soared.

 

We don't have a huge range at the moment but if you wish to take a look click here.

 

P.S. I also tasted the 2012's from barrel at Albert Morot yesterday. They were brilliant!

 

Quantities are small - just 2 1/2 barrels of some wines. Watch out for our offer later in the year.
