Capitain Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Bois Roussot' 2015
We could tell you all about the soil make-up in the Ladoix 1er cru vineyard ‘Bois Roussot’, but suffice it to say that when the Capitains planted, they need a jack-hammer to break up the limestone! So you can imagine this ruby red, very mineral, red-fruit Ladoix, powerful but fine, with supple tannins and the trademark Capitain 10% new oak. A classic red Burgund
Domaine Potinet Ampeau Volnay 1er Cru 'Clos des Chenes' 2010
Volnay 1er Cru 'Clos des Chenes'. Do we need to introduce one of the best-known vineyards of this generation? Here we have that 2010 fruit, just coming into its maturity, but with lots of legs left to run. The precise, chiseled palate is generous red fruit and density. A great vineyard, in a great vintage, from Potinet-Ampeau...who know a thing or two about making wine to age.
Jean Fery Vosne-Romanee 'Aux Reas' 2013
For many, Vosne Romanee makes the ultimate in Pinot Noir. This wonderful 2012 Jean Fery single-vineyard Vosne-Romanee 'Aux Reas' is a beautiful garnat that exudes fruit as intense as its color and flavors as deep and dense as the ensemble suggests, firm and fresh and long. A great vintage and a great wine. 'Harmony' is a word that springs to mind.
