Description

Although he is sixth generation winegrower and winemaker, rising Burgundian star Pierrick Bouley is modifying the family domaine, introducing new methods in both the vineyards and winery to stunning effect.  The grapes for his Cote d’Or Pinot Noir come from south/southeast facing slopes just below Volnay and although labelled as a humble Bourgogne AC, the wine is anything but ‘entry-level’.  This incredibly generous Pinot Noir is wonderfully open, with a mixture of red and dark fruits that almost verge on New World opulence. Elegant and fresh with a beautiful balance on the long finish. Limited quantities available.


Grapes are harvested manually and hand sorted prior to a second sorting on a vibrating table.  Fermentation starts in vats without the addition of Sulphur and is finished in barrel.  Minimal SO2 is added at bottling to stabilise the wine, resulting in a wonderfully pure and fresh Pinot Noir.

2016 Les Charmes de Kirwan, AC Margaux, Half Bottle

Bordeaux Blend

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.

2020 Morgon Les Charmes, Chateau Grange Cochard

Gamay

Château Grange Cochard lies in the heart of the Morgon Appelation on granitic, shaly slopes and has been crafting classic wines from their superbly sited vineyards since the 18th Century.   The 'Les Charmes' is one of the favoured 'lieu-dits' of Morgon and winemaking is traditional, with hand harvested fruit fermented carefully in the semi-carbonic maceration method with half being whole bunches and half de-stemmed fruit.  Maturation is in a mixture of vat and cask and sulphur addition low.

2020 Cabernet/Shiraz, Hartenberg, Stellenbosch

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet/Shiraz from Hartenberg has a lovely vivid purple/red colour, with ripe berry fruits on the nose and hints of forest floor entwined with sweet spice. The palate reveals plenty of vibrant red fruit courtesy of the Cabernet Sauvignon alongside typical black pepper spice from the Shiraz.  There's plenty of juicy, crunchy fruit, soft gentle tannins and a velvety, elegant finish.

Gamay Noir Canaille.JPG

2021 Gamay ‘Canaille’, Domaine Roussely

Gamay

Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes improve immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces.The Cellar is underground, dug into a tuffeau tunnel underneath the vines, and have been used for vinification of wine for over 250 years. New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking  place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest.  Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.
