Outstanding wines from outstanding winemakers in an outstanding vintage! You get 3 bottles of each, ground shipping included:
Domaine William Nahan Chablis 2017
This Chablis ‘tout court’ (as the locals call ‘village’ AOC Chablis) is a model of purity. We look for sweet river rock, white flowers and a lemony acidity. My last tasting note for this one read: ‘Pale yellow gold. Floral and lemon notes on the nose. Fresh, fleshy and precise with good balance and length. Good long finish on fruit and mineral. Bingo!
Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune White 2017
Jean-Jacques Girard knows Savigny les Beaune. And while 85% of Savigny is red, there is a lovely strain of minerality that comes out of this valley. and with the village appellation Savigny les Beaune blanc, Jean Jaques shows us what is possible. The nose is like an apple orchard, fresh fruit and apple pie spices in the air. Rich, supple, pure, and then a bite of that pie! This one is ripe, fresh and shows a good deal of complexity.
Domaine Pierre Thibert Bourgogne ‘Les Bouffales’ Rouge 2015
A single vineyard Bourgogne is often a thing of wonder, a reflection of the precise terroir of the village it comes from. And this ‘Bouffales’ shouts Nuit St. Georges. A superbly positioned parcel. Blackcurrant and pepper, supple in its attack, complete through the mid-palate with a finish on fruit. Great structure, a wine that drinks above its appellation.
Domaine Pierre Thibert Chorey Les Beaune 2015
Pierre Thibert is a ‘garagiste’ no more! And we’re here to report on big changes in this small-production, top-quality, self-made domain. Pierre and his wife, Aline, have accomplished what many say is no longer possible in Burgundy: they built a solid family domain, a world-class reputation and a sophisticated style over the course of a single generation. They created something out of nothing! Delicate and supple, rich and full of Pinot Noir character. Crimson with classic red and black fruits set off by earth and spice. Good and subtle tannic structure finishing long on fruit.
