A-F Gros 2011 Richebourg. Save $220.00 a Bottle!‏

A-F Gros 2011 Richebourg Header

A classic Richebourg made to cellar

 

The string of small vintages 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 has had an effect on the livelihood of all producers in Burgundy. Many have lost the equivalent of 2 vintages in the last 4 years!

 

Needless to say, this has put enormous pressure on producers and one of the only ways to manage is to increase prices. Considering the shortfall in production the price increases have been moderate, although, it would be fair to say they are most noticeable at Grand Cru level where demand far outstrips supply.

 

The cost of great vineyards like Richebourg, Chambertin and Montrachet have gone through the roof in 2012. The wines are exceptional but they are expensive.

 

However, there is still great value to be had in 2011 where prices ex domain were considerably lower.

 

We have a small amount of the 2011 Domaine Anne-Francoise Gros Richebourg enroute from France. We've made it particularly attractive with an almost 25% Pre Arrival Discount. So instead of paying $760.00 Pre Arrival you can pick this wine up for $675.00 a bottle. The 2012 will cost you $977.50 a bottle Pre Arrival!

A-F Gros Richebourg Burghound: A spicy, wonderfully fresh and cool nose is comprised of notes of plum, violets, anise, cinnamon, sandalwood and red pinot fruit liqueur scents. There is an opulent mouth feel to the velvety yet distinctly powerful broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent volume before culminating in a balanced, impressively long and mouth coating finish. As classic examples of Richebourg go, this should drink well somewhat earlier yet will still require the better part of a decade to be enjoyable. 91-93 Points

And Another Top Grand Cru 

Les Clos

The best known and most loved wine of Chablis. It is the largest of the Grand Crus and the epitome of Grand Cru Chablis. The wine is powerful, yet gentle with great depth and appeal. It is mineral and full and capable of extended cellaring. 

 

Long-Depaquit own two parcels, one mid slope, the other at the top, totalling about 2.5 ha. The wine mid slope provides more richness, the top more acidity. The two plots are blended.

 

Tanzer: (40% oak): Pale bright yellow with green highlights. Distinctly riper on the nose than the Blanchots, with a yellow peach scent complemented by white pepper, spices and a soupcon of smoky oak. Concentrated and impressively rich, with lovely mineral and floral lift to the flavors of crushed yellow fruits and bitter almond. A hint of finishing bitterness gives this long, powerful, broad-shouldered wine freshness and grip. No shortage of extract here, but a bit hardened today by the gas. 91-94 
Normally $117.95
Pre Arrival Price $99.95
At under $100 a bottle this is great value!
