Yes, there is still great value Burgundy out there!
Five weeks in France in June and July presented many opportunities for me to taste the 2011 and 2012 vintages. As usual I visited our established suppliers as well as a number of "new candidates". As regular readers will know several new names have already been added to our portfolio.
Over the last week our email list has expanded significantly with some great press in The Australian. For those new people in particular I would like to point out three of our new domaines, all of whom are producing seriously fine Burgundy at exceptionally good prices. And by buying at our Pre Arrival Prices you save 15% on the landed costs.
Located in Nuits-St-Georges this domaine is a specialist in Nuits and has great vineyards including Les St Georges, which is currently being considered for elevation to Grand Cru status. The 2011's here are tremendous, amongst the best I tasted for the entire trip. All of the wines are great value. Click here to read more about the domaine and view the wines available.
Domaine Jerome Castagnier
In 2007 Jerome took over from his father Guy and quality here has rocketed. The domaine owns some seriously old vineyards including a clutch of Grand Crus which they sell at remarkably fair prices. The Villages wines are also very representative. Probably the cheapest Grand Crus you will see from the Cote de Nuits. Click here to read more about the domaine and view the wines available.
A very old domaine in the Cote de Beaune with two major strings to their bow. They have exceptional Corton Red and White Grand Crus including a super Corton Blanc. The Pre Arrival Price is just $125.00 a bottle ($115.00 a bottle by the unbroken case!)! They also have a Chorey-les-Beaune Rouge which is a stunner for those looking for an everyday drinking red.
