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

Les Parcellaires de Saulx

Gevrey-Chambertin Les Parcellaires de Saulx 2017

France

Overripe fruit that is almost more like rhône Grenache than burgundy! Very much a product of a hot vintage. The palate is similarly candied, although it has a savoury finish with finely milled tannic texture, and a good dose of acidic refreshment too. (RH)

Tighter and more savoury than their Volnay, but with the same impressive persistence and focus to the fruit. Long, spicy length. Warm on the finish. (RH)

Biscuit, banana, baked apple and sweet spice and a touch of minty herb character too. Beautifully layered and luxurious, and while the finish has a slight hoppy note that seems vaguely oxidative, the amount of flavour on display is really good for this price. GV (RH)

Marc Roy

Alexandrine Roy explained that 2017 was “so much easier to manage than 2016 that it almost seemed like a vacation relatively speaking. With that said, we had the same frost scare that we did in the prior year and thus we were out in the wee hours of the morning on the 26th and 27th of April ready to burn straw bales to create the necessary smoke screen. Ultimately, we had no damage because the conditions were drier than those of 2016 and we essentially had no damage to speak of. Moreover, because we had a real winter it killed many of the pests and spores so the growing season had almost no disease pressure. Bud burst came early and there was a generous fruit set along with a very fast and successful flowering with virtually no shatter. The summer was quite warm without being excessively hot which had the effect of thickening the skins and this helped against what little disease pressure there was. We picked from the 5th to the 9th of September and there was almost no sorting required. I destemmed the fruit completely and did a very soft vinification that favored pumping over relative to punching down during the 15 to 18 day cuvaison. Regarding the wines, I love the ‘17s for their unabashed freshness and energy. They are already a pleasure to drink and I think that they will be enjoyable young, old or in between.” As commented on in the past, Roy just doesn’t seem to miss as she’s a perfectionist and 2017 will not disappoint her legion of fans.

Michel Bouzereau

The harvest started on 30th August in Caillerets and Charmes, and was finished by 9th September. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay flowered in warm weather at the same time but, whilst the Pinot loved the heat, Chardonnay did not, with the resulting coulure and millerandage restricting yields to around 50hl/ha. There was also some frost damage on the lower-lying Bourgogne parcels (which now carry the Côte d’Or appellation) and volumes are consequently down on 2016. Jean-Baptiste looked to get texture into his wines from skin contact (he crushes before pressing) and an extended fermentation rather than through batonnage, seeking to capture as much of the vital balancing freshness as possible. For Jean-Baptiste, 2017 is a very complete vintage, offering a wide and complex range of aromas and flavours.

Michel Gros

Michel picked between 8th and 20th September. "There was a little rain, but no problem. The fruit was very ripe. There were two months of minimum daytime temperatures of more than 30 °C – but maturity was not blocked. There are good volumes – the biggest vintage since 2009. The vines which were frosted in 2016 have given a bigger yield than those which weren’t. There was no rot at all and the grapes hardly needed sorting. There is low acidity, low malic acid and pHs are quite high – similar to 2007, but with more density and concentration. The wines are round and rich, with supple tannins."

Michel Niellon

Michel Coutoux told us “It was an early vintage. An early, hot spring, everything developed rapidly. Good weather, warm temperatures and some rain. The end of August was hot, and rain came at the right time to ensure physiological maturity. There were no maladies and the fruit was very healthy”. Michel began picking on 3rd September and concluded 6 days later. “It was an easy vinification. Good pH, good sugar and acidity. Alcoholic fermentations were rapid and problem free and the wines were perfectly dry with no residual sugar. Malolactic was equally trouble free in February and March”. Michel likens his whites to the 2014 vintage.

Michele et Patrice Rion

Patrice explains that the hard work they did at the start of the year in pruning short and carrying out a severe de-budding, as well as a little green harvest on younger vines, paid dividends in terms of avoiding excessive yields and consequent dilution. The dry and warm conditions towards the end of the season allowed them the luxury of choosing when to harvest, in fact beginning on the 9th September. Patrice compares the vintage to 1979 and 1989, highlighting the wines’ impeccable balance and freshness (the latter he prefers over power) as particular strengths.

Patrick Javillier

Since our visit last year, Patrick’s dream of an appellation exclusively for generic wines from the Côte d’Or has been realised and the label of the estate’s estimable Cuvée Oligocène proudly announces its new status. For 2017 Patrick’s daughter Marion explained that they didn’t need to keep too much the lees, as the musts were already rich and they preferred to use batonnage for complexity. Harvesting began on 28th August, and Marion feels there is a purer expression of terroir this year than last.

Paul et Marie Jacqueson

According to Marie Jacqueson, "2017 was a year of sunshine; a fresh spring, with a little frost on the 28th and 29th April, then the months of May, June, July and August were sunny. We started harvesting on 5th September and finished on 18th September in perfect conditions. We are very happy with this year. It gave some great whites and gourmands reds. In spite of the heat, the whites have beautiful acidities and will keep very well. The reds are already crunchy and they will begin to give pleasure rapidly".

Philippe Colin

Philippe began picking the whites at the end of August, then the reds on the 5th and 6th September, the perfect conditions at harvest allowing them to take their time to pick each parcel as it ripened. He feels it is a good vintage for both colours, with correct - but not excessive - volumes and wines which are precise, with good acid structure, perfect balance and a good level of ripeness, “un millésime classique bourguignon” in his own words. In volume terms there is more wine across the board, the exception being Puligny Demoiselles, where there is slightly less than in 2016, and Chevalier-Montrachet, which is identical to 2016, Philippe’s parcel having been spared in ’16.
