Burgundy 2017 En Primeur

Burgundy 2017 En Primeur including NEW Vindependents Selection

Our offer from this largely exciting vintage is in full flow. We have over the last few days added a host more from wineries that we import through our buying group The Vindependents.
We are founder members of this group that numbers around 35 of the leading independent merchants from around the UK. We import a whole host of wines exclusively from around the world including many fairly small wineries in Burgundy.
No member has to buy anything so we are free to pick and choose from our regular tastings.
Many of these are wines we sell all year round, but this year we are offering En Primeur.
I tasted all these wines last week and was very impressed – even more so given that we have tasted many of the famous names in the last 10 days too!
These are terrific wines and largely at VERY competitive prices when compared to most of the more famous names. These are wineries that get very good press in France but maybe not so much on an international stage e.g. Wine Advocate/Vinous
Richard Hemming MW of Jancis Robinson (jancisrobinson.com) also tasted the wines as part of their almost unrivalled comprehensive tastings of 2017 Burgundy.
If you have not bought En Primeur before then this might be the time to do so. You will save 20-25% on the retail price on the whole. You guarantee availability, many of these wines will not hit the shelf such is demand.
You only pay for the wine now, duty and vat is payable once we ship the wines to you/make available for collection.

I would like to add the following recommendations and points. Listed in order of tasting !
Domaine Michel Moingeoin
The Saint Aubin’s are superb, high quality, rich yet fresh white burgundies. The Puligny is great value for the appellation too.

Domaine Christian Bergeret
Great across the board, fabulous Saint Aubin, and great value Chassagne Montrachet. Long, rich, complex yet fresh white burgundies.

Domaine Marechal
Not cheap but classy. Claude Marechal worked for and was mentored by Henri Jayer before starting his own Domaine with wife Catherine. Whites rich and pure, reds really good- particularly liked the bright fruit and silky quality of the Ladoix. The Pommard will age really well.

Domaine Jeanniard
Liked these a lot, vibrant almost tangy reds, the Morey-Saint-Denis all good. Good potential for mid term aging too.

Domaine Réné Cacheux
Very high quality Bourgogne Pinot Noir. The Vosne Romanée where really exciting, pretty pricey but with stunning ripe fruit, spice, oak and acidity. As good as any I tried from 2017.

Domaine Remoriquet
I thought these were all great. At the riper darker spectrum for Burgundy, but still with good acidity and a lovely lively character. The basic Bourgogne is fantastic and great value. The Nuits-St-Georges I liked a lot, not cheap but the 1er Cru’s were seriously impressive especially the 1er Cru Rue de Chaux and Les Damodes

Domaine Belleville
These wines are already firm favourites at NYW and the Rully Chapitre was our best selling white Burgundy this Christmas (a Mercurey Rouge not offered EP was bestselling red Burgundy!)
Superb wines across the board, have a complexity and richness you would not expect, across the board great values. All the 1er Cru Rully Blanc are highly recommended, of the reds I loved the Rully 1er Cru Chapitre, the Mercurey Perrieres and 1er Cru Clos l’Eveque in particular.

Les Parcellaires de Saulx
They are made from single parcels of grapes (not blended) bought from very high profile domains and vinified by the team at Domaine Belleville. All I 1 year old barriques. Tiny production, sensational wines.
The Pernand Vergelesses is simply superb and lovely now ! – this is the largest production wine – 4 barrels, so 100 cases of 12! The reds are all stunning some are 50 cases only, the delicious Volnay a whopping 75 case blend.
Get your requests in quickly on these!

Domaine Meunier
These are already gaining a following. The white and red Mercurey are for me the stand out wines. Clean, fresh, pure, vibrant styles.

Domaine Billard Pere et Fils
Making their debut to us and some great wines and great values.
Love he St. Romain both white and red. The Beaune both village Les Bons Feuvres and 1er Cru Les Chouacheux great value. Quite pretty for Beaune, perfumed, bright, good acidity. Lovely wines.

Domaine R&P Bouley
Again making their debut. Lovely Volnay in particular both the village and 1er Cru.

Domaine Michel et Joanna Ecard
Fresh crunchy Savigny-Les-Beaune. Sappy and savoury with a bright energetic feel. Good depth too.

It’s worth checking back.

Please note all Burgundy orders are a REQUEST FOR AN ALLOCATION
We have to buy across the board from the growers, so just ordering sought after Premier and Grand Cru wines only is hard to fulfil.

Domaine de Courcel

According to Gilles de Courcel, “Temperatures were generally above normal all year. After a mild winter and hot spring, the thermometer reached 35 C. in June, the summer remained hot and there was a magnificent Indian summer. There was about 25% less rain than a normal year, but the regularity of the showers prevented any hydric stress. There was no frost, hail, storms nor diseases and the grapes were extremely healthy when the harvest began on 17th September. The resulting wines have great aromatic freshness and are rich and suave with great finesse.”

Domaine du Clos Frantin

The Clos Frantin quality drive continues apace. Owned by the Bichot family, this small but perfectly formed domaine is chock-full of great vineyards and all the critics are now agreed that under the careful attention of Albéric Bichot their potential is being realised to great effect. The domaine is based in Nuits-St-Georges, although much of the élevage is carried out in the spacious cellars in Beaune. The wines have a great mix of voluptuousness and elegance with elegance winning the argument more often than not. Yields have been dropped in recent years and new oak management has been well handled. This is another successful vintage for the operation.

Domaine Felettig

This fabulously run domaine has experienced a meteoric rise in its reputation over the last few vintages and is now one of the most highly reputed in the village. According to Gilbert, “In 2017, there was no frost and the vintage is about the same size as, but much better than, 2014. It was an easy, ideal, classic vintage – with maturity, freshness, sufficient acidity, no solaire aromas and very healthy fruit, which hardly needed to be sorted. The wines have taken on even more precision during elevage”. Chambolle was heavily frosted in 2016 and the vines compensated in 2017 – which he controlled by both de-budding and green harvest. Gilbert began harvesting on 8th September and concluded a week later. He destemmed entirely in 2017.

Domaine FEUILLAT-JUILLOT, Montagny les Buxy

Françoise Feuillat-Juillot continues to make exemplary wines from her 16 hectares of prime vineyards in Montagny. Francoise told us "Summer 2017 was very dry, particularly in August and the expected rains only arrived in mid-September. The grapes matured very quickly and we had to harvest in haste at the beginning of September. There was little juice in the grapes and we were therefore down about 30% in volume. Despite the conditions, the wines have remained fresh, yet ample and rich."

Domaine Hubert (Olivier) Lamy

Olivier was, again, badly hit by frost in 2017. What he did make was absolutely superb. “The end of winter was quite hot and then, on the 25th April, a large part of Saint-Aubin was frosted – especially the parcels of village and 1er cru vineyards on the lower slopes at the centre of the village. May and June were hot and dry – the flowering was completed rapidly and an early vintage was predicted. July saw a little rain and August was hot and dry – which allowed the grapes to reach perfect maturity. We began harvesting the whites on 25th August with a beautiful balance between sugar (13.2 – 13.5 natural) and acidity (pH 3.20). It is a warm, sunny vintage, which has retained freshness. The yields are very low – often less than 2016. The wines were vinified in hardly any new oak (0-5%). There was little settling of the juice and the malos finished rapidly. After a year of élevage, the wines are beautifully balanced, and each terroir is clearly distinct.”

Domaine Philippe Livera (Dom. des Tilleuls)

Damien began picking on 8th September and finished five days later. The following day, it rained. “Very healthy grapes, no rot – but we always sort every grape. No problems with blocked maturities.” Everything was 100% destemmed in 2017. An excellent range from a domaine very much in the ascendency.

Dugat-Py

As always, tasting at this sensational, super-star domaine was one of the great pleasures and highlights of our vinous year. According to Loïc “It was une belle année. A hot summer, 36-37 °C and a canicule at the end of August. Yields had to be controlled, by green harvest, to result in 25-30 hl/ha. We began picking on 2nd September and finished on the 12th. The fruit was very healthy and hardly any sorting was necessary. Natural alcohols ranged from 12.9-13.5 degrees. The wines are concentrated, aériens, floral and round with no surmaturité.” Words are inadequate to describe our admiration for the work being done here by Loïc Dugat and his parents Bernard and Jocelyne.

Eric Forest

A majority of Eric’s vines are on the limestone hill of Vergisson side, rather than the granitic, opposite hill. In 2017, yields were lower, due to frost, but his domaine now comprises 6 hectares. He picked between 31st August and 7th September. According to Eric “2017 is an extremely good vintage with beautiful, rich textures and good acidity, lots of fruit and freshness – very warm, but not as hot as 2003 or 2009 – which are drinking wonderfully now”. He believes that levels of acidity matter for the first three years after harvest but are not important thereafter, provided one practices long elevages. “There was 25mm of rain on 26th August, but the soil was so dry that the vines hardly took up any water. Most growers rushed to pick, fearing rot, but the grapes were not ripe. By mid-November, any grapes left on the vines still did not have any trace of rot!”- vindicating Eric’s decision to wait.

Fernand & Laurent Pillot

This superb 15 hectare domaine goes from strength to strength. Laurent has now been joined by his son, Adrien, who made the 2017s, with Laurent managing the vineyards. The whites have always been very special, but the reds have improved beyond all recognition over the last few vintages. They are now gorgeous, ripe, generous, supple and multifaceted. Laurent, in his understated way, described the 2017 growing season as “normal”, with a perfect, rapid flowering. He said that vines most heavily frosted in 2016 produced higher yields in 2017 – which he prefers to control by de-budding, rather than green harvest. “It was a beautiful harvest, without any climatic hazards and no spring frosts – even if temperatures got worryingly low. There was nice weather in May and regular sun and rain allowed for homogenous growth of the vines. Some heat in early June allowed for a quick, easy flowering. There was some rain in July and August was hot. Picking, of exceptionally healthy fruit, began on 2nd September and continued for a week in excellent conditions.”

Francois Buffet

Whilst this domaine continues to fly under the radar, it is telling that Marc-Olivier’s wines came out particularly well in a recent blind tasting of 2015 wines, several of his Premiers Crus coming top of their respective flights. After experimenting with varying levels of whole bunches and different vinification techniques and struggling to work with small volumes as a result of hail and frost, it feels as though Marc Olivier is now at ease and in the groove, and this was one of the most impressive red cellars of the vintage.
Harvest here began on the 5th September, finishing on the 15th with Marc Olivier taking his time to pick his 8 hectares as each parcel achieved perfect ripeness. After 5 catastrophic years in volumes terms, he is delighted with the yield in 2017, as well as the quality of the wines, which he feels have ripeness of both tannins and fruit, along with great acidity which, he argues, gives freshness and ageing potential. Whole bunches do not exceed a third on any wine, and the proportion of oak rarely passes a quarter. This is a confident and elegant range of wines which all have a touch of Volnay finesse, alongside their individual characters.
