DOMAINE MARCHAND FRERES MIXED 2015 CASE
Marchand Freres is the quintessential Burgundy domain: small production, excellent quality.
Denis Marchand is one of a handful of great producers working quietly without fanfare, but producing some of the greatest red burgundy today.
He has small parcels in some very important vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis, and Gevrey-Chambertin; including some big-name Premier Cru as well as Grand Cru. However, production is tiny, 1000 cases here, a few hundred there, mere dozens in the Grands Crus.
If you do not know Denis Marchand and the Domaine Marchand Freres, you are missing out on a true Insider Burgundy
12-Bottle Mixed Case of the fabulous 2015 vintage, includes 3 bottles of each:
Gevrey-Chambertin 'Vieilles Vignes' 2015
‘Vieilles vignes’, old vines, have the advantage of keeping crop yields naturally low. And low crop yields mean ‘concentration’. Here we get that concentration in a Gevrey-Chambertin ‘village’ made from two contiguous ‘lieux dits’ (Pressonniers and Fourneaux) which are situated below the line of the Grand Cru to the west of the Combe Lavaux. We are talking about a classic Gevrey village spot, similar to the vineyard ‘Aux Etelois’ that is just across the way. This is Gevrey-Chambertin as we like it best.
Gevrey-Chambertin 'En Etelois' 2015
Butting up against Grand Cru Griottes-Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin, this Gevrey-Chambertin ‘village’ lieu-dit ‘Aux Etelois’ is justifiably famous and particularly prized here in the region. It’s what we call a ‘locals’ wine. The parcel is often bottled as a single-vineyard ‘village’ because of its intrinsic elegance. Domaine Maume (among others) also produces an excellent Etelois.
Freres Morey St. Denis 1er Cru 'Les Faconnieres' 2015
On well-drained gravelly soil just below Grand Cru Clos de la Roche and running the length of premier cru ‘Les Millandes’ just to the south, the premier cru ‘Faconnieres’ is one of the best-situated of the many great Morey-Saint-Denis premiers crus. Add to that 50 year old vines and vinification worthy of a Grand Cru, for a minuscule production of just 1300 bottles, and there you have Burgundy at its best.
