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.
    Grape varieties: 80% Gamay Noir and 20% Pinot Noir

  2. Jean-Marc Burgaud Villages Les Vignes de Lantignie 2019
    Jean-Marc Burgaud Villages Les Vignes de Lantignie 2019

    The vines in this monopole are 55 years old, planted in sandy topsoil over granite at a density of 10,000 per hectare. Whole-berry, semi-carbonic maceration for seven days, then aged in concrete for six months. Burgaud says: "The 12th century Chateau de Thulon, my great aunt’s property, is in one of the best villages due to its hillsides and granite soil. It produces a bright red wine with a fresh and fruity nose. Best drunk within two years of release.

    This wine was named in Wine Advocate's top 100 discoveries of 2020.

    Offering up pretty aromas of blackberries, peonies and subtle forest floor, the 2019 Beaujolais-Villages Les Vignes de Lantignié is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with lively acids, velvety tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. As usual, this saw a short six- or seven-day maceration with whole clusters, followed by élevage in cement tank. Once again, Burgaud has produced a characterful and viscerally drinkable Beaujolais-Villages that exemplifies all the merits – as well as the incredible value – offered by the appellation at its best.

  3. Domaine de L'Eveche Cote Chalonnaise Clos de l'Eveche 2019
    Domaine de L'Eveche Cote Chalonnaise Clos de l'Eveche 2019
    A small family run Domaine of just over 12 hectares, purchased by the Joussier family in 1985, with vines initially known to have been cultivated in the middle ages, situated in Saint Denis de Vaux, tucked away in the heart of the Cote Chalonnaise “value” area of  Burgundy. An excellent range of wines from regional to Mercury Blanc and Rouge. These wines have regularly received a “Star” from the Guide Hachette.

  4. Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Les Grasses Tetes 2017
    Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Les Grasses Tetes 2017
    From two parcels of old vines; one based on Crinoidal limestone (known in France as Calcaire à Entroques), the other Comblanchien. This wine is very perfumed and pure with real depth, yet showing a lovely minerality and elegance, finishing with great length and very fine tannins. PWS

    Notes of spicy red berries and cherries introduce the 2017 Marsannay Les Grasses Têtes, a medium-bodied, velvety wine built around tangy acids and powdery tannins. This is one of the more understated wines in the Collotte portfolio this year. Drink 2020-2035. WILLIAM KELLEY, The Wine Advocate, February 2020.

  5. Faiveley Mercurey La Framboisiere 2019
    Faiveley Mercurey La Framboisiere 2019
    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.

    Domaine de l’Aste Santenay Rouge 2019

    'One of Santenay's emerging talents...' WILLIAM KELLEY, robertparker.com

    'Already one of the best addresses in Santenay!' BILL NANSON, burgundyreport.com.au

    Village wine, 2 plots between Santenay and Chassagne. All hand picked and barrel aged.

    Winemaker David Moreau states 'it has depth, black fruit and spices, and a hint of fresh oak. It's structured with complex mouthfeel.'

    'Moreau's wines come highly recommended. I was smitten by the purity of fruit, fineness of tannins and their charm. Whilst they might not necessarily be wines of enormous longevity, I am not sure how much that matters when they have so much to offer in their youth (though that said, if I had a case I'd keep six bottles back to see how their age.) If you have read this producer introduction up to this final sentence, then the next thing you should do is pick up the telephone or click a mouse and buy these wines.' NEAL MARTIN, vinous.com

    Domaine SC Guillard Gevrey Chambertin Reniard VV 2019
    Deep crimson, quite deep color. The nose is layered with berry fruit, raspberry, wild strawberry, cassis and briary fruit. There is lovely perfume lift and a purity of fruit, it is a super fresh and delineated wine The palate is beautifully balanced and finely structured with spice, red berry loads of silky tannins and a long driven finish. The old vines providing depth and persistence. Lovely balance and length.  Drink 2025-2035. TOM CARSON

  8. 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

  9. Domaine SC Guillard Gevrey Chambertin Aux Corvees VV 2019
    Domaine SC Guillard Gevrey Chambertin Aux Corvees VV 2019
    Very depth of color. The is always more new oak here to be seen of first impressions that elevate the overall complexity and class of the aromas, it is amply carried by the depth of fruit, wild strawberry, black cherry, blackberry and plum. The palate is suitably concentrated but with a silky volume of fruit that coats the palate. Corvees is normally a little firmer in tannic structure, but this is silkiest and finest we have seen. The finish long and fragrant. Drink 2026-2038 TOM CARSON

    2018 Gevrey Chambertin Vielles Vignes 'Aux Corvees' : Very depth of color. The is more new oak here to be seen of first impressions that elevate the overall complexity and class of the aromas, it is amply carried by the depth of fruit, wild strawberry, black cherry, blackberry and plum with a brooding background. The palate is suitably concentrated with ample extract and structure that has layers of fruit and texture. Very classy effort. The finish long and fragrant. Drink 2025-2038. TOM CARSON

    Faiveley Beaune Clos de lEcu 2019 1er
    Aromas of plums, rich forest floor, warm spices and smoked meats introduce the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Écu Monopole, a medium-bodied, bright and elegant wine that's satiny and melting, with lively acids and fine, powdery tannins. This is as fine a rendition of the Clos de l'Écu as I can remember tasting. WILLIAM KELLEY, Wine Advocate

    Taupenot Merme Chambolle Musigny 2018
    A cool and very pretty nose offers up notes of red and dark cherry with hints of pomegranate, violet and discreet spice wisps. There is the classic undercurrent of minerality on the caressing and relatively dense medium-bodied flavours that exude a refreshing salinity on the serious, firm and mildly raspy finish. This too will need a few years to round off the tannins. ALLEN MEADOWS, Burghound

    Taupenot Merme Gevrey Chambertin 2018
    A brooding and definitely ripe nose presents forest floor and sauvage-infused aromas of red currant and poached plum. The rich, caressing and suave medium weight plus flavours are shaped by ripe tannins on the balanced finale. This is quite good though note that it is a big-bodied, firmly structured and ageworthy Gevrey villages. ALLEN MEADOWS, Burghound
