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.


Please also note w are waiting for final pricing from a couple of other suppliers non-Vindependents)
Look out for in particular
Le Domaine d’Henri Chablis
Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon – delicious Macon’s.
Olivier Merlin- Macon and Pouilly Fuissé
Domaine de la Soufrandiere great Macon, Saint Veran and Pouilly Fuissé from the Bret brothers.
Jean Philippe Fichet 0 Meursault
Patrick Javillier, great Bourgogne and Meursault
Olivier Leflaive -various whites
Domaine de Montille (including those previously known as Chateau du Puligny Montrachet)
Sebastien Magnien
Domaine Follin-Arbelet – great Corton Charlemagne and Aloxe Corton
Domaine de la Vougeraie – lovely across the board
Domaine des Croix – great Beaune
Domaine J-F Mugnier
Thibault Liger-Belair
Domaine Jean Grivot
Domaine Guyon
Meo Camuzet
Ghislaine Barthod – lovely Chambolle Musigny
Domaine Louis Boillot – good wines and some lovely Beaujolais too
Dujac Fils et Pere maybe the best yet?
Domaine Tawse
Domaine Jean Fournier

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.

Francois Lumpp

The new generation of Anne-Cécile and Pierre are now firmly implanted in this fine 9.5 hectare domaine, founded by their parents François and Isabelle in 1977, with no inherited vines. Francois’s measured and understated verdict on the 2017 vintage was “C’est bon. A vintage I like very much – and, especially, in Pinot. It was a hot summer, but no blockage. Yields were 20% down because of frost. Picking began at the beginning of September of beautiful, healthy fruit – with average maturities of 13.5 degrees, natural. Analytically, there is not much acidity and the pHs are quite high. However, there is no lack of freshness due to the good, natural levels of tartaric acid”. He believes it resembles 1999 – which is one of his favourite vintages. “The wines will age well - but won’t necessarily need to”. They use up to 70% new oak for their red wines and 30% for whites.

Francois Raquillet

According to Francois, “The vines profited greatly from a very summery spring and bud-break was at the beginning of April – predicting an early vintage. From the middle of June, the vines were in flower and fruit set was rapid. Summer saw a few heat waves (canicules), which alternated with some cooler weather and showers. Maturity continued with a good rhythm and by the end of August, the first grapes were harvested – concluding on 12th September. They are wines with lots of vivacity with lovely weight and balance. They exhibit crisp fruit and will reveal themselves quite young. They are similar to 2012 in style”.

Heritiers du Comtes Lafon

The hot and dry conditons in summer 2017 have yielded mixed blessings; the wines are deliciously ripe but the volumes have suffered a little due to drought stress. Picking began early at the end of August, with the resulting wines being described by Caroline as of really high quality, with good balance and maturity. Dominique and Caroline take great care to pick each parcel (and indeed sub-parcel) at precisely the right time to ensure optimum ripeness.

No wines for these new releases at the moment. Please come back soon.

Jean Chauvenet

‘Christophe Drag was a happy man when we visited, explaining that 2017 is the first full vintage since 2009. He was delighted with the wines as well, opining that they possess fruit, freshness and energy. The season was simple, with a little frost threatening at the end of April; the proximity to the town of Nuits meant that burning bales was not an option, but the dry conditions (in contrast to 2016) meant that there was limited damage. He began picking on the 9th September and finished on the 15th, bringing in the grapes between 12 and 13 degrees and using 15% new oak on the village wines and 20 to 30% on the Premiers Crus, essentially according to the number of barrels per cuvée. This is a genuinely impressive range of wines, one of the highlights of the vintage, and these wines continue to offer excellent value, particularly in comparison to some of their more fêted neighbours’.

Jean Fournier

The scars of the 2016 vintage appear to have healed, although with Laurent’s positive attitude that was never in doubt. Having had to compromise his organic status last year to fight the mildew which followed the frost, he has begun organic certification again. Since 2016 Laurent has made a conscious effort to “have faith in the grapes”, and extract less from them, allowing the terroir to speak clearly. The results are exciting, the wines showing more grace, elegance and purity than ever before, and it is clear that this is one of the success stories of the vintage.

Joseph Colin

Following the route taken by his elder brother, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Joseph left the family domaine in 2016 to forge his own path. With only 6 hectares presently under vine, based in the hamlet of Gamay near Saint-Aubin, he is able to work in a way that was previously not possible.
Everything is carried out manually in the vines, with ploughing between the rows and no herbicides or chemical fertilizers. On the steep slopes of Chatenieres and Sentier du Clou, he grows grasses to combat erosion. He uses organic products whenever possible to control pests and diseases. For his white wines, the grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed, the must run-off straight into barrel, and is neither settled, chilled nor are sulphites added. Only indigenous yeasts are used. The wines spend 12 months in barrel, without bâtonnage and the barrels are topped twice a week. Racking is after 12 months, without SO2, when the moon is descending, on either "fruit" or "flower" days. Everything is done by gravity. After racking, the wines are lightly fined and sulfited and then spend 2 months in tank, prior to being bottled without filtration. He uses between 15% and 20% new oak barrels.
These are stunning wines – Exquisite, generous and full of intense flavours, whilst retaining great tension, poise, energy, minerality, and salinity.

Joseph Voillot

This fine family-owned domaine, comprising 9 hectares of vines, has been run impeccably since 1995 by Jean-Pierre Charlot, son-in-law of Joseph Voillot who sadly passed away in July 2014. Over recent years Jean-Pierre has refined the quality and style of wines produced here. Sustainable viticulture holds sway. He has dispensed with the inclusion of stems, as he prefers the essence of fruit, and he has shortened the length of time the wines spend in barrel – typically 14-16 months followed by 1 month in stainless steel prior to bottling. Jean-Pierre has also reduced the percentage of new oak - now 10-20% depending on the cru. He prefers a light filtration, but no fining. Jean-Pierre is excited by the quality of his 2016s, understandably.

JP Fichet

They say you can tell a lot about a man by his shoes, but in Jean-Philippe Fichet’s case you should substitute the word ‘shoes’ for ‘workbench’, where every tool has its place, lined up neatly on hooks on the wall in order of size. For me this epitomises a man who is precise, correct and pays great attention to detail. Thus his wines always have a sense of precision and freshness, and he is constantly striving to better himself.
