Guy Amiot 2104 Chassagne-Montrachets

This week we summited with a preview sampling of Chassagne-Montrachets from Guy Amiot. Since 1920, the Amiot family has produced "pure" wines that express the true terroir of the hallowed vineyards around their home village. Planted mostly in the '20's, the vines provide naturally lower yields which allow expertly delineated expression. Because one family has lovingly tended these vines from pruning in the spring through the autumn harvest - each plot's "identity" is captured and put on full display.

Vintage 2014 is an exceptional one for white Burgundy. Here's a profound interplayof freshness and ripeness.  These wines are exquisite across the board; thrillingly fine, nuanced gems that will supply incredible enjoyment over the next 5-10 years.

On offer:

Chassagne-Montrachet "Vielles Vignes" - superb richness and transparency, an excellent example of the village and the vintage - $80

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Marecherelles" - decadent texture, layered and long, a harmonious balance of fruit and acidity. - $96

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Champsgains" - quite vibrant, perfect ripeness, lush, persistent. Incredible length. - $96

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos St. Jean" - stony, chalky, with superb concentration -  pure elegance. - $105

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Vergers" - the complete package; tightly wound, focused, exacting fruit, aging required. - $105

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" -  copious levels of fruit balanced with fine minerality, the interplay is stunning. - $105

Tronquoy de Saint-Anne, Saint-Estèphe 2010

Tronquoy de Saint-Anne, Saint-Estèphe 2010

Each year we travel to Bordeaux to purchase wines directly for our shop. Over thirty years of visiting the region we have developed fruitful relationships gaining access to unique wines at favorable prices.
 
Tronquoy de Saint-Anne 2010 impressed us even more when we pulled a cork stateside than it did in France. It is a wonderful expression of the sizable shift in style of Saint-Estèphe over the last several vintages. We've noticed many bottlings becoming softer and more approachable while maintaining their classic broad shouldered character. Two-thirds Cabernet and one-third Merlot; it possesses cassis and brambly fruit notes, with supple tannins on the palate which firm up at the finish. Quite drinkable now without compromising it's authenticity or sense of place.

You will wish you had purchased more when cooler weather sets in.

$26 / btl or $132 / 6-pack

Chateau-Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Tete de Cru 2015

Chateau-Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Tete de Cru 2015

There is always something gratifying when a client expresses their enthusiasm for fine White Burgundy. Essentially they are saying they did not realize the complexity that the Chardonnay grape was capable of attaining. Simply put, there is just so much going on in a good White Burg that when one experiences it, excitement is a natural reaction. How can a wine contain so many aromas and flavors simultaneously? There is white peach, green apples, a bit of lime, a note of pear, spring meadow, minerality, wet slate, dried wood and more. Crisp yet persistent flavors dance around your mind long after you have finished your sip. 

This particular White Burgundy makes friends year after year. If you require something a little special for vacation or a meal - this is not to be missed. 

Terroir: Chateau Fuissé's Téte de Cru is a blend of over 20 prime vineyard sites throughout the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, contribute intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuissé, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old. 

Vinification: Each vineyard site is vinified separately until the final blend is chosen following aging. 60% of the wine is aged in oak barrel (25% new) while the remaining 40% is stored in stainless steel to retain it's pure fruit. 

E-Mail special : $35 per bottle or $384 per case 

Normally $40 per bottle 

10 cases available!
