Beaune from the great 2010 vintage

just $44.00 a bottle by the Case!

Another serious bargain!

 

Domaine Maillard Père et Fils was established in 1766. Since then, it has changed village several times to settle finally in Chorey-les-Beaune in 1952.


Today, the domaine comprises 18 hectares in seven communes. Pascal Maillard looks after the marketing and winemaking. His brother, Alain Maillard, is in charge of operations in the vineyards. They are are the tenth generation of the Maillard family.

 

I first tasted the Domaine Maillard Cortons at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne last year. I was very impressed and planned to visit but simply ran out of time at the end of the trip. 

 

In June this year I made sure they were my first stop. My original interest was in the Corton Grand Crus but I was very surprised at the quality of the Villages wines - and what great value they were.

 

All of the wines are extremely well priced. The red and white Cortons, both from the great 2010 vintage, are tremendous value at $125.00 a bottle (particularly the white which is usually 25-50% more than the red). And the Villages wines start at $41.50. There is something for most Burgundy palates here.

 

Not reviewed by Burghound, we delight in presenting another high-quality, great value, discovery.

 

The domaine's Beaune from the great 2010 vintage stuck out as an absolute bargain. 

 

Domaine Maillard Beaune Rouge 2010

Normal Price $55.00 a bottle

Pre Arrival Price $46.95

Pre Arrival Price per Dozen $528.00 (=$44.00 a bottle)

 

40% new oak shows just how serious they are about making a Beaune of quality, even at Villages level. Another vibrant wine. Medium colour. From a single, and quite special, parcel of 50 year old vines. Cherry and cherry pits, elegant but with nice depth of flavour from the old vines. Classic style Beaune finish with fine, detailed tannins, and easily capable of 5-10 years in the cellar which will see the wine blossom. 

 

$44.00 for a big-name commune Red Burgundy from the great 2010 vintage is not much at all! The days of buying 2010's are fast coming to a close.

Domaine de la Sangliere and Chateau Pas du Cerf from Provence

Tonight - a few spots left

 

We have quite a few requests for a top French Rose. Two producers in Provence have each sent us 6 bottles of wine to evaluate.

 

Domaine de la Sangliere has sent us five different Roses from 2012 and a Red. Chateau Pas du Cerf has sent us two Roses and four Reds.

 

We'll open all 12 samples for evaluation next Tuesday and we'd like to invite you to taste them with us and give us some feedback.

 

We have a single bottle of each wine to try so we have limited number of places. The tasting will be very casual and is free for active clients. 

 

If you are interested in wines from Provence, in particular Rose, this will be an informative tasting.

Time: 5.30pm to 6.30pm (come when you please)
Venue: Our showroom, 21 Toorak Rd, South Yarra 3141

 If you would like to come along send me an email at darren@grandmillesime.com.au and I will confirm. All I ask is that if you book in you make the effort to attend so others do not miss out.
