INTRODUCING ELDEN RED BURGUNDY
2 BOTTLES OF EACH
Domaine Pierre Thibert Cote de Nuit Villages 2014
Alive, alert with a tension that makes you makes you almost overlook the pretty black fruit. There's mineral here too, keeping the whole thing focused. There's a voluptuous density of fruit lurking in this young frame. Balanced and again, way above its appellation.
Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravieres' 2015
Not surprisingly, this Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' red comes from the same vineyard as their Santenay 1er 'Gravieres' white, just further down the slope where the soil becomes denser and red. ‘Gravieres’ is one vineyard with two different soil types, apt for two different wines. Sadly, many producers have succumbed to the temptation of the bottom line, and have replanted Chardonnay where there should be Pinot Noir. But not the Borgeots! Their 'Gravieres' red is their signature Pinot, with ripe dark fruits tinged with chocolate and coffee, rich, powerful and fat right through the lingering note of pure blackberry.
Marchand-Tawse Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012
From the first whiff you know there is substance here. The nose is so expressive and full of black fruit. There’s great tannic structure, but well integrated. There’s the 2012 charm. fresh, soft and spicy. And what you find in the nose lingers to a long delicate finish.
Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune Red 2015
Jean-Jacques Girard's Village appellation Savigny-les Beaune, is aged for 15 months in oak. But you would never believe it to taste it! Granted, the color is deep cherry red, as are the fruits, but this Savigny is supple, graceful, full of finesse with an enjoyable palette of fruit bouncing around the mid-palate and ending on freshness. If you want a snapshot of what Pinot Noir does in the Savigny valley, here's your wine.
Paul-Henri Thillardon Chenas 2014
Paul-Henri Thillardon is, at a very young age, a masterful winemaker. It's got to be a gift, he has touch and perfect pitch, and his wines sing. Chenas is not far from Moulin-a-Vent, and for that can show much of the same muscle. Paul-Henri brings you this concentration, but knows where the balance point is for elegance. We call this 'grown-up wine'.
Thierry Richoux Irancy 2014
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!
