A terrific new addition to our Portfolio

  

Last week I visited Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut. I had a tour around the vineyards and then set about tasting the full range of their 2011's.

 

Domaine Ravaut came into our portfolio in a slightly unusual manner. Scarcely a day passes that we are not offered interesting wine from somewhere in the world. Many simply don't fit our portfolio but a few do and we ask for samples to evaluate the wines.

 

The domaine sent samples and along with a few customers few I sat down and tasted the wines. We were all very impressed. As they say, the rest is history.


Ravaut Vincent Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut is a family winery. It is located in Ladoix-Serrigny at the junction of the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits, at the foot of the famous hill of Corton. Over six generations have seen this domain gradually develop around the small hamlet of Buisson. The vineyard holdings total just over 16 hectares and production is 80,000 bottles a year, of which 50% is sold in France. The domaine has holdings in the Grand Crus Corton Bressandes, Corton Hautes Mourottes and Corton-Charlemagne and some lovely Premier Crus in Ladoix-Serrigny that taste like mini Cortons.

 

Sixth generation Vincent is the current manager of the domaine and as has happened at many addresses in Burgundy he has brought a new, fresh approach which has resulted in some exceptional wines.  

 

Ravaut Corvee Label As I mentioned above we were very impressed with the wines from this domaine. Their three 2010 Premier Cru Reds from Ladoix-Serrigny all taste like mini Grand Cru Corton. The style and structure is similar and the wines are brilliant value. Haven't heard the name before - well, you will be missing something if you don't give these wines a go. They are classic, beautifully made red Burgundies.

 

Ravaut Bressandes Label Then we have the three Corton Grand Crus - two reds and the white Corton-Charlemagne. As good as the 1er Crus are these are a step up. Whilst more inexpensive than the 1er Crus they still represent excellent value. After all where else can you buy Grand Cru Burgundy for $127.50? And from 2010 to boot!

 

I do recommend these wines. They have that desirable mix of classic and delicious - hallmark of the great 2010 vintage. They are available at Pre Arrival Prices which will save you 15%.

Some 2010 Burgundy Still at Pre Arrival Prices

 

Most 2010 Burgundy has come and gone.

 

However, there are a few domaines that bottled late or, like Ravaut alongside, we have started importing recently.

 

So there are a number of tremendous wines from this stunning vintage that you can still buy at Pre Arrival Prices.

 

If you would like to grab more 2010 Burgundy at Pre Arrival Prices we suggest you act quickly.
