2015 – Maison Champy Vosne-Romanée

Burgundy ~ 1er Cru Les Suchots

Maison Champy Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots 2015

In the Burgundy commune of Vosne-Romanee, just a brief stroll from the legendary Romanee-Conti Grand Cru, the Les Suchots Premier Cru vineyard delivers vivid and nuanced expressions of Pinot Noir for a vastly lower price.

Maison Champy’s technical director and oenologist Dimitri Bazas compared the clean fruit from 2015 to the region’s stellar 2005 vintage, taking great care to craft a perfumed, impeccably balanced Les Suchots that could offer early enjoyment or reward patience in the cellar.

“Beautiful garnet ruby color. Cherry notes with, at the same time, a nose of mint and coffee with aromas of plum liqueur. On the palate, an exceptional sweetness and richness that coats a dry extract that gives the persistence and balance in the final of this wine. Great aging potential.”

Appellation: Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru “Les Suchots”
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Altitude: Between 240 and 340 m, with exposure east and southeast.

White Burgundy 2017 Domaine Feuillat-Juillot Montagny 1er Cru Les Grappes d’Or

White Burgundy is synonymous with Chardonnay, with Montagny, in particular, offering savvy wine lovers some of the best values in the region without skimping on quality. In Domaine Feuillat-Juillot’s 2017 ‘Cuvée Les Grappes d’Or,’ Chard shows off its fresh and elegant side thanks to grapes picked exclusively from premier cru vineyards – i.e. the best in the appellation. Lively aromas of Golden Delicious apple, lemon balm, flinty minerality, and acacia flowers meld with subtle notes of toast from a deft use of oak, making this French bottling an absolute treat!

Pouilly-Fuisse White Burgundy

Pouilly-Fuissé is the appellation for the finest white wines of southern Burgundy’s Maconnaisdistrict. They are produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson.

The Pouilly-Fuissé appellation officially dates back to September 1936, although the boundaries were drawn up as early as December 1922. It currently covers around 800 hectares (2000 acres) of hillside vineyards, planted on limestone-rich clay soils over a granitic base. The 500m (1640ft) limestone escarpment known as the Roche de Solutré is located at the heart of the appellation’s vine-growing area and towers over the vineyards below.

The Pouilly Fuissé title on a wine label may be completed by the name of the specific vineyard where the grapes were grown. The most commonly cited are La Roche, Les Vignes Blanches, Aux Chailloux and Les Crays. There is no Premier Cru system within the appellation, so quality is indicated through the reputations of producers and their vineyards.

The typical Pouilly-Fuissé wine is full-bodied, ripe and relatively elegant, with the best examples rivaling the finer wines of the Cote de Beaune.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue ~ Musigny Cuvee Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru ~ 2012

Would Love to Try One…Please Buy Me One..Just One


Pinot Noir from Chambolle-Musigny, Cote de Nuits, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Musigny Vielles Vignes Grand Cru from de Vogüé has slightly brighter and more vivacious fruit than J-F Mugnier, and in fact, the two wines seem to go in two different trajectories in the glass, this blossoming and the other becoming more occluded. De Vogüé’s Musigny is unashamedly floral in style, very elegant and yet delineated. There is a noticeable estuary scents, mudflats and seaweed, that begin to permeate the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, wonderful acidity and succinctly integrated new oak that is barely tangible. It is intense but elegant, long and tender in the mouth. RP 98+

Deep, bright red. Brilliantly complex, focused nose offers scents of redcurrant, blueberry, crushed stone, spices, red licorice, menthol and botanical herbs. Boasts extraordinary sweetness and depth to its chewy, sappy red and dark fruit flavors. Really bulletproof fruit here! Spreads out on the back half to saturate every square millimeter of the palate, finishing with penetrating berry fruit and salty minerality. Remarkably long and tactile. V 96+

Maison Champy ~ Burgundy

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 2015

For lovers of Pinot Noir, Burgundy stands head and shoulders above the rest, with the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin representing some of the best-known and most dramatic expressions of this fastidious variety.

Maison Champy’s 2015 Premier Cru offering brims with flavor and intensity in its youth, but with a few years in your cellar will evolve into sheer elegance.

93 Points – Wine Spectator!

“Aromas of cherry and raspberry are surrounded by sweet, spicy oak. Shows a slightly exotic feel, with chalky tannins that are well-integrated and supportive.”

1945 Romanée-Conti

Burgundy Grand Cru ~ $558K single bottle at auction


1945 Romanée-Conti Burgundy Wine

When a private Asian collector bid an eye-popping $558,000 for a single bottle of 1945 Romanée-Conti at Sotheby’s sale this past Saturday in New York, a world record was smashed. This was not just the highest price ever reached for a 750ml bottle of Burgundy, but also the highest for any bottle of wine ever at auction.

Moments later, a second private collector, from the U.S., paid $496,000 for a second bottle of the same wine, and that too broke all previous records, minus the new one that had just been set.

Which begs the question: Why would someone pay half a million dollars for a bottle of wine?

After all, you could buy many cases of superb vino—even stellar Burgundy—for the same price, which amounts to about $100,000 per glass. (The Liv-ex online wine market points out that 133 bottles of 2010 Château Pétrus, a one-bedroom flat in London, and 400 ounces of gold would each set you back the same amount.)

Fabled Vineyard

All the wines from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, in the charming, tranquil town of Vosne-Romanée, are famous, sought-after Burgundies. An entire mystique surrounds the domaine, which is known by the nickname DRC. Farmed biodynamically, its grand cru vineyards are meticulously cared for, the grapes sorted individually.

But of its seven fabled reds and one white, those from the tiny 4.5-acre Romanée-Conti vineyard are absolutely iconic, the epitome of the highest-quality Burgundy. The late food writer Richard Olney once called this plot of land “timeless perfection.” Several years ago an extortionist threatened to poison the vines unless the domaine paid him a €1 million ransom. (He was caught.) The 2015, which I tasted earlier this year, has amazingly complex aromas, long, savory layers of earth and spice flavors, and a silky texture that transfixes your tongue.

2017 Domaine Cauvard Les Monts Battois


Côte de Beaune Monopole 2017 Domaine Cauvard Les Monts Battois

While affordable red Burgundy is relatively rare, those from single-owner vineyards known as ‘monopoles’ offer an even more elusive taste of Old World Pinot Noir. Domaine Cauvard’s silky 2017 ‘Les Monts Battois’ glides across the palate with fresh notes of cherry, cranberry, rose petal, mineral, and gentle spice, complemented by plenty of food-friendly acidity. Enjoy this discounted gem from the Côte de Beaune any time or gift a bottle to someone special.
