Burgundy

Burgundy, the mythical home of wines made from Pinot Noir & Chardonnay … don’t forget AligotéGammay too!

Located in the middle of France on the eastern side. There is no other wine region that has been defined in such incredible detail. Each vineyard has been named and classified. Within these vineyards their are also Lieux Dits  referring to a specific part of a vineyard or region recognized for its own topographic or historical specificities.

This detailed definition allows for the equally detailed exploration of terroir. Hereditary tittle law in France has seen vineyards split between siblings generation after generation. Many incredibly small parcels producing only enough grapes to yield a single barrel of wine exist. This further extends our ability to see terroir in action vs the hand of the maker with many of the great vineyards having dozens of owners each producing minuscule volumes of wine.

The opportunity to taste them side by side is becoming increasingly difficult as scarcity drives prices up!

The most famous and coveted wines are the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of the Côte de Nuits and Côte du Beaune. Together they form a narrow escarpment running north-south over a distances of less than 50kms.

Much further north the Chardonnay from Chablis stands comfortably on it’s own two feet with some delicious mineral, fine wines with insane ability to age.

To the south excellent wines are produced in the Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais, home to Chardonnays of exceptional value & personality.

Further again the Gammay from Beaujolais represents some of the beast value wines from Burgundy.

We’ve shared a series of articles in the Wine Bites Mag “Getting Your Head Around Burgundy” deep diving into the region.

Where marginal climate saw a high proportion of tough vintages in Burgundy. In ability to rippen grapes is less often a problem today. Catastrophic frosts and hail storms more of an issue.

Domaine Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Blanc 2019

Producer and site … that is all! When your Bourgogne is made from vineyards in Meursault and Puligny it really does make a difference. Ballot-Millot has given as a beautifully balanced wine, with a wonderful texture. Flavourful drinking beautifully now. An excellent Bourgogne with great fresh flavours, drinking beautifully now and good for a few more years.

Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2018

"A notably ripe yet still attractively fresh nose flashes a hint of exotic fruit character on the notes of white peach, poached pear and whiff of lychee. There is once again very good energy to the delicious, round and rich flavors that also deliver fine length on the clean and dry finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2019

Here too there is plenty of citrus influence to the white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in petrol nuances. There is equally good energy to the well-detailed and delicious middle weight flavors that conclude in a slightly firmer and bracingly dry finish. This too is excellent for its level.

Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge 2019

A great mixture of sites this year includes 25% villages wines from St-Romain Sous le Château, Savigny and Monthelie. The Bourgogne-level fruit was drawn from the excellent Maison Dieu in Pommard, Mon Poulain in Volnay, Belles Côtes in Meursault and Croix Blanche in Vosne. Then there’s a good glug from the Dames Huguettes vineyard which lies in the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée. Make no mistake, these are serious vineyards for a wine at this level. Leroux has alway

Domaine Thierry Laffay Petit Chablis 2019

Deceptive, restraint and sophistication at play. Here it is in the texture, line and length of acid. A little chalky with an nice layer of phenolics. As it rolls around your palate it builds with excellent mid palate weight. Here’s a hot tip for you, one of the differences between good and great Chardonnay is mid-palate weight. This has it. Looks like a long slow ferment with my winemaking hat on. Fine delicious poised and pure. A little cold on first pour as it warmed and took a gasp of air t
