HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR MIXED CASE
Here’s a mixed 12 bottle case of Red and White Burgundy from the Elden Selections’ cellars at the best prices you see this year!
You get 6 White Burgundy
Chateau de Vergisson Saint Veran 2107
Bottled in March 2018, this wine is pure pleasure. Raised in stainless steel tanks, it’s pure, open, fresh, with a noseful of rich, ripe fruit that snaps with mineralty, and a mouthful of freshness that’s like biting into the grape bunch. Charming every-day drinking Burgundy!
Domaine Oudin Chablis 2015
Classic sweet river rock minerality and floral freshness, this is a meticulous perfectionists’ Chablis ‘tout-court’ (as the locals call the ‘village’ appellation). This wine is at its peak now and will remain there for another 3-4 years. A lovely introduction to the Domaine Oudin style.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne 2016
From parcels around Savigny-les Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, this is a cuvee designed to show Pascal Marchand’s vision of Chardonnay. Floral, with that Corton Mountain minerality, great acidity that makes it mouth-wateringly juicy and open. It’s ready. A lovely image of white from the middle reaches of the Cote d’Or.
Château Cary-Potet Montagny 1er Cru ‘Les Jardins’ 2015
From the southern reaches of the Cote Chalonnaise, the wines of Montagny are among the best value in White Burgundy. With a unique and dusty minerality that many compare to a suave left-bank Chablis, the wines also profit from their southern position, so ripeness and maturity yield seductive and charming Chardonnay. This premier cru ‘Les Jardins’ is rich and grassy, with flinty minerality in the nose, and smoky minerality on the fruit. Lemon drop acidity and a touch of fat maturity are carried through the mid-palate onto a long mineral finish.
Domaine Gilles bouton Saint aubin 1er Cru ‘Les Champlot’ 2016
From a steep south-west facing slope overlooking the village of Gamay, Les Champlots gets the full afternoon sun, and is hence always that bit more exuberant than the ‘En Remilly’ from the other side of the hill. Expressive, floral, and orange-blossom citric, it’s supple and well-balanced, with a smoky mineral in the finish.
William Nahan Chablis 1er Cru ‘Vaillons’ 2015
Justifiably well-known, the left bank premier cru ‘Vaillons’ lies in the center of the great hillside to the southwest of Chablis. Kimmeridgian subsoil and stainless steel tanks give us a wine that is refined and bright, lively and intense, solid and concentrated.
And 6 Red Burgundy
Pierre Thibert Bourgogne ‘Les Bouffales’ 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.
Pierre Thibert Chorey Les Beaune 2015
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.
Thierry Richoux Irancy 2015
The village of Irancy, one of the prettiest in all of Burgundy, is also famous for its black cherries. We’re not sure if it is subliminal, but this Irancy from Thierry Richoux always has a deep backdrop of black cherry. Floral and fine, it is a masterful wine from one of the great domains of Burgundy. Remember who told you that!
Domaine Borgeot Bourgogne 2016
The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Chenevottes', located east of the village and not far from grand cru Montrachet, is a complex vineyard, made up of light soils that are easy to cultivate on a mild slope with good exposure. What you get is a wine that is extremely bright with citric acidity and floral aromas that are finely chiseled, and with a concentration that finishes long and intense.
Domaine Michel Arcelain Bourgogne 2014
This Bourgogne will stop you in your tracks. Like so many regional appellation wines from small, proud production domains, the grapes for this wine come from a vineyard in the village where the producer lives and work. In this case…it’s Pommard. This is no big-volume blend Bourgogne like you get from the negociant houses. No, you’ll swear that this is a little Pommard. And that’s how it should be!
Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne 2014
Jean-Jacques Girard's family has been making wine in the Savigny-les Beaune valley for 500 years, so it's not surprising to find that his regional appellation Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a little Savigny. Blackcurrant freshness, a touch of earth subsoil, a supple, easy structure and bull's-eye line on through the whole from the attack to the finish.
