An Outstanding Single Site Bourgogne Blanc at a Great Price. Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts

Doudet Bourgogne Header

A real over-achiever!

 

Alongside the cellars of Domaine Doudet lies a very special 0.43 hectare parcel of land. Planted in the 1960's this walled plot ( the two triangular vineyards in the image above) is called Le Clos en Village. It is technically Savigny-les-Beaune Villages however the bureaucratic nightmare required to reclassify the wine is not worth the trouble for the paltry 1,800 bottles produced annually.

 

The domaine prefers to sell the wine as Bourgogne Vieille Vigne and we are one of only four people in the world to offer this special cuvee.

 

Domaine Doudet Bourgogne Blanc 

Le Clos en Village Vieille Vigne

Normally $44.50 a bottle

Pre Arrival Price $37.80

Case of 12 bottles $427.00 (=$35.58 a bottle)

 

Doudet Bourgogne Clos en Village Normally a parcel this small would be blended with other Bourgogne but the quality of the fruit from the old vines is so special that the domaine bottles it separately.  

 

Vinous. Fresh and vibrant with lots of citrus and mineral. Very zippy with considerable length extended by surprisingly high acidity for 2011. Delicious! This wine punches way above its weight. For me really good Villages quality Burgundy if not bordering on Premier Cru Savigny-les-Beaune in style and interest.

 

Only 10 cases left. 

 

Forget what is on the label. This is seriously good white Burgundy at a low price - perfect for everyday drinking.

P.S. Le Clos en Village was decimated by the hail storm on 24 July. There will be very little, if any, wine produced from the 2013 vintage.

Frantin 2011 Malconsorts MAGNUMS

 

2011 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts

On the way!

 

If you have not secured some of the outstanding 2011 Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts you need to do so quickly. Our container is on the way and as soon as the wine arrives our Pre Arrival Prices will no longer be available.

  

Burghound has scored the 2011 barrel sample higher than he scored the 2010 at the same stage!

  

Burghound: An intricately woven nose blends both oak and natural spice elements that serve as an elegant backdrop to the earthy combination of violets, dark berries and cassis scents. There is exceptionally good richness to the very round, intense and muscular large-scaled and very firm flavors that possess a seductive texture. There is excellent volume and phenolic maturity to the extract-rich finish that is currently quite robust yet remains beautifully well-balanced. A classic built-to-age Malconsorts. A Sweet Spot Wine. 91-94 Points

 

We still have the wine in 750ml bottles plus a small number of Magnums - ideal for long term cellaring.
