A Gold Medal Winning 2010 Red Burgundy for Just $79.95!‏

Ravaut Murottes Header

It is always a pleasure to see one of our discoveries win Gold!

 

The French don't do wine shows like we do in Australia. There are fewer shows and the results carry more prestige. You never see a French wine festooned with gaudy medals from a show somewhere you have never heard of.

 

Ravaut Gold Medal Not surprisingly, one of the major shows is staged in the capital, Paris. It is a real achievement to receive a Gold Medal at this show.

 

We were delighted to see the Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut Ladoix 1er Cru Les Basses Mourottes 2010 collect the top award.

 

Ladoix-Serigny is part of the trio of communes that produce, amongst other wines, Grand Cru Corton. The name is not well known, but it is possible, if you are a fan of Grand Cru Corton, you have been drinking the wines and loving them.

 

Ravaut Basse Mourottes Bottle Ravaut's Gold Medal wine comes from the 1er Cru vineyard Les Basses Mourottes. The "Mourottes" vineyards are part Grand Cru and part Premier Cru. In fact, Ravaut produces Grand Cru Corton from Hautes Mourottes (the upper part of the land). It is not surprising that the wines from the 1er Cru portion feel and taste

very much like Grand Cru Corton. 

 

Last year, before we decided to import Domaine Ravaut, I tasted along some clients, the range of wines from the domaine. We were all very impressed with the wines, in particular the Ladoix 1er Crus. For me the top wine was the Basse Mourottes. It looked like a baby Grand Cru Corton. Obviously, I was not the only one to think so!
 
So I am delighted to see one of our babies collect a serious award. Just as I did when I first sampled this wine I heartily recommend it. Forget the fact you may not know the wine. This is serious Burgundy from an unquestionably great vintage.
 
Domaine Gaston and Pierre Ravaut Ladoix 1er Cru Les Basse Mourottes 2010 is priced at $79.95. We have 49 bottles in stock. Don't miss it!
