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.
Domaine Desuremain Rully 1er Cru 'Preaux' 2012
Very pretty Pinot Noir from the charming 2014 vintage. This premier cru Rully from the Cote Chalonnaise throws out a range of complexity from red currant acidity to black cherry suavity. A touch of rusticity in the tannins brings out a freshness and vivacity that makes this wine approachable now, and that will make it magnificent in 4-5 years’ time.
Chateau de Chamilly Mercurey 'Clos La Perriere' Monopole 2014
‘Exuberant’ is the word that springs to mind. This single-vineyard Mercurey is wholly owned by the Desfontaines, and is situated in the heart of the village. It is bright, juicy and full, with soft, round spicy black fruit. Open and balanced, with depth but not heaviness. A nice initial finish on primary Pinot notes, but it opens in the glass to early hints of secondary Pinot earth, tobacco cinnamon and leather. Bright, smoky and long. A nice glass of wine.
