Burgundy



The soils and vineyards of Burgundy have been very well defined thanks to the studious Monks a few hundred years ago - and the swathe of others who have picked up the baton since.

The Golden Slope (Cote D'or) is divided into two; the Cote du Nuit to the north and the Cote de Beaune to the south. Pinot noir dominates the Cote du Nuit as it loves the limestone nature of the soils and Chardonnay thrives in the heavier calcareous marl soils on the Cote de Beaune.

The essence of Burgundy comes down to the place where the vines are grown. The more definitive you can be (e.g. a single vineyard like Grand Cru or Premier Cru) then the higher the price you'll pay. A village wine, which will most likely be a blend of vineyards from within the village won't be as expensive as its origins are a little broader.

To the north, Chablis is an outpost. Lying closer to Champagne than the Cote d'Or, its marine fossil laden soils (Kimmeridgian clay) make scintillating renditions of chardonnay which age beautifully.
To the south the Cote Chalonnais, Maconnais and Beaujolais make wines that are easier on the pocket. There's some great value to be had here. A few different grapes are added to the mix including Gamay and Aligoté (as well as pinot noir and chardonnay).

Red or White?
Both.

Grapes
White: Chardonnay, Aligote
Red: Pinot Noir, Gamay

Styles
The purity of chardonnay is on full display in a bottle of Chablis. Chiselled and tightly wound this is a crisp and salivating white. White Burgundy tends towards a riper heart but with spicy oak support.

  1. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.

  2. Faiveley Mercurey La Framboisiere 2019 375ml
    Faiveley Mercurey La Framboisiere 2019 375ml
    The finest rendition of this cuvée that I've ever tasted, Faiveley's 2019 Mercurey La Framboisière wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet berry fruit, warm spices, rose petals and plums. Medium-bodied, fleshy and precise, with lively acids and excellent depth at the core, it's deep and unusually serious, with all the charm but less of the frivolity that this cuvée has historically displayed. It derives from an 11-hectare parcel—part of which was planted in 1990 and the rest of which is old massal selections—that was vinified with 15% whole cluster and matured in 20% new oak.

  3. Domaine de Bellene Nuits St Georges 2018
    Domaine de Bellene Nuits St Georges 2018

    A slightly fresher nose offers up decidedly floral-infused aromas of spice, the sauvage and black cherry aromas. Once again, the medium weight flavors are not particularly concentrated, but they are reasonably refined in the context of what is typical for the appellation, all wrapped in serious if slightly rustic finale. BURGHOUND

    This wine is always one of the sleepers in the range. Initially it collapsies in on itself. Austere and muscular but after time it is a glorious expression of pure commune terroir. 2018 is one of the best examples I have seen. MICHAEL MCNAMARA

    Domaine de Bellene Volnay Les Grands Poisots 2018

    A spicy, ripe and nicely layered nose speaks of notes of violet, cassis and soft spice nuances. The markedly rich medium-bodied flavors possess a velvety mid-palate that contrasts somewhat with the firm and mildly warm finale...BURGHOUND

    One of the richer examples of this wine I have seen. Liquer cherries and glycerol slipperiness in texture. Seductive and decadent. MICHAEL McNAMARA

  5. Domaine de Bellene Nuits St Georges 2019
    Domaine de Bellene Nuits St Georges 2019
    Notes of freshly turned earth, floral and underbrush add breadth to the various dark berry fruit scents. There is again excellent volume and mid-palate density to the sappy medium weight flavors that possess classic Nuits muscle though perhaps just a bit less rusticity than usual. This is really quite good and fashioned in a built-to-age style.

    Rene Bouvier Marsannay Clos du Roy 2016

    Fresh, ripe and really quite pretty aromas include those of dark cherry, raspberry, violet and a whiff of earth. There is fine density to the delicious, vibrant and relatively powerful and robust medium-bodied flavors that ooze evident minerality on the firm but not really austere finale. While still patently young, it's not so backward or youthfully austere to be unapproachable and for my taste, I would tuck any remaining bottles away for another 5 to 7 years. Lovely. BURGHOUND

  7. Domaine de Bellene Beaune Vieilles Vignes 1er Hommage Francois Potel 2019
    Domaine de Bellene Beaune Vieilles Vignes 1er Hommage Francois Potel 2019
    The 2019 Beaune "Hommage à Françoise Potel" 1er Cru is named after Nicolas Potel's late mother and is a blend of five Premier Crus. It has vibrant red cherries, kirsch and cassis on a nose that is more opulent than Les Teurons. The palate is well balanced with succulent red berry fruit. Fine tannins frame the peppery finish, which fans out nicely. Lovely length here. Very fine.  NEAL MARTIN, www.vinousmedia.com

    Jean Tardy Gevrey Chambertin Champerrier VV 2019

    The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Champs Perrières Vieilles Vignes is a little more reticent than Tardy’s other cuvées at the moment, though the tightly wound red fruit is delineated and fresh, and a little floral in style, revealing touches of wilted iris. The palate is medium-bodied and grainy in texture. A nicely structured and classically styled Gevrey with touches of dry tobacco toward the tertiary finish. Impressive length courtesy of vines over 65 years old. NEAL MARTIN, Vinous.com

  9. Robert Chevillon Nuits Chaignots 2017 1er
    Robert Chevillon Nuits Chaignots 2017 1er
    4 BOTTLE LIMIT
    The proximity to the southern side of Vosne is in evidence as here the expressive nose of pure red and dark berry scents cut with warm earth is quite spicy. In the same fashion as the nose, there is a lovely texture to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence both fine depth and length. I like the balance and there is enough stuffing that this could be approached early but it should also have no trouble amply repay mid-term cellaring. BURGHOUND

    A distinctly earthy and somewhat somber nose possess notes of underbrush, the sauvage, dark currant and plum. The rich, concentrated and powerful medium weight flavors flesh both good minerality and excellent complexity on the solidly long and balanced if overtly rustic and very firm finish. This is a big wine in the context of the vintage and very Nuits in character. "Outstanding" BURGHOUND

  11. Jane Eyre Gevrey Chambertin Corbeaux 1er 2017
    Jane Eyre Gevrey Chambertin Corbeaux 1er 2017
    From the same producer as her Gevrey village. She’s been making this since 2015. Next to Mazis. 10% whole bunch. One of four barrels is new oak.
    Mid garnet. Lots of minerally intensity and intrigue on the nose – very different from her other wines on the nose and with more race and tension, but still the same flattering, accessible, naked fruit. Well done! (17) JANCIS ROBINSON

    This is the third vintage of this impressive premier cru from Australian micro-négogiant Jane Eyre, sourced from a single parcel next to Mazis-Chambertin. Pure, elegant and refined, it has cherry and raspberry aromas, subtle 25% new wood and just a hint of whole bunch sap. Textured, delicate and very long. TIM ATKIN, Decanter Magazine

  12. Jane Eyre Gevrey Chambertin Corbeaux 2016 1er
    Jane Eyre Gevrey Chambertin Corbeaux 2016 1er

    There are three barrels of the 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux this year and it is due for bottling around February (indeed, there was a bit of reduction on the nose). It comes from a parcel adjacent to the lieu-dit of Mazis-Bas. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red cherry and strawberry fruit, grainy in texture, a Corbeaux that exerts a gentle grip with impressive tension and sense of energy on the finish. This has great potential and may well surpass the 2015. NEAL MARTIN

    First vintage 2015, from the same supplier as the Gevrey village wine. The parcel is right next to Mazis-Chambertin and Eyre sees some similarities to the Mazis fruit she used to have at Domaine Newman. Around 15% whole bunch. Three barrels, one new. Barrel sample. Eyre notes that it tends to be a bit reductive in the beginning, so it is bottled later than her other wines.
    Darker and more savoury than the Savigny Vergelesses with a light charry note that is part reduction and part oak, I suspect. Succulent and lightly chewy texture though the tannins are very fine. Extremely moreish. The juicy fruit escapes around the edges and gives a long finish but a bit flattened by the oak at the moment. Wait. JULIA HARDING MW

  13. Jean Marc Bouley Volnay 1er Cru Les Carelles 2016
    Jean Marc Bouley Volnay 1er Cru Les Carelles 2016
    More aromatic than the Caillerets, offering warmer, more demonstrative scents and flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, smoke and subtle spices. A spicy, inviting, fine-grained wine from a sunny spot protected from wind, with the iron element in the soil providing volume. This mellow premier cru boasts a seductive sweetness (and 13.6% natural alcohol). Finishes with nicely integrated, horizontal tannins and lovely length. Bouley refers to this vineyard as his baby (he was actually 14 years old when these vines were planted), noting that the site "has all the elements to make great, unctuous, red-soil wine.

    Domaine Beaumont Morey Staint Denis 1er Millandes 2006
    Les Millandes is below Clos Saint-Denis, the grand cru. The vines are very old and the wine is the most structured and rich of the Moreys we produce. During the winter of 1984-1985 it was very cold, -27C. A large part of the vines died and my father told me to replant the whole vineyard since it was old anyway. But I said that I would only replace the vines that had died, so I replanted 30-35 percent. HIERRY BEAUMONT, http://www.bourgogne-info.eu
