With January just behind us, Burgundy has once again proven that it is very much at the forefront of the wine lover’s mind, with extraordinary levels of demand far outstripping supply in all of the key appellations. Indeed, with the bulk of the campaign behind us, we can now take stock and head back to Burgundy. Today we are thrilled to present a beautiful selection of 2014s from all over the Cote d’Or, where we have a touch more available to offer (but really shouldn’t!).
The highly lauded 2014 whites are not to miss out on. We have secured additional parcels of exceptional premier crus, including Puligny Les Referts from Bachelet Monnot and the staggeringly good Meursault Perrieres and Puligny Champs Canet from Chateau de Meursault, the new kid on the Justerinis' block.
Red-wise, one would be smart to look to premier cru Nuits from Domaine Gouges, such as the Clos des Porrets – a bargain in every vintage – as well as the classical anthems of Pruliers and Les Vaucrains. We even have a handful of Pruliers cases from Grivot.
From Vosne, we recommend Les Malconsorts from Clos Frantin, another new producer to Justerinis, and an endorsement echoed by the critics. From the legend that is Bruno Clair, we have some Chambolle Veroilles, a fine Chambolle from one of the appellation’s highest vineyards that will offer a great deal of pleasure over the medium term.
Just the one red from the Cote de Beaune in the round-up today, however it is from one of the Cote’s best, the Marquis d’Angerville himself. Guillaume’s stable is a perennial highpoint for Burgundy lovers, marked as they are by elegance and aristocracy. Champans is consistently one of the most seductive vineyards in Volnay and given the pedigree of its producer, there can be no doubt of the future reward.
