Burgundy is not just Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it's an
exciting opportunity to really explore what is meant by
'terroir' with its proliferation of 'Villages', 'Cru', 'Climats',
and 'Lieux - Dits'.
This study could last a lifetime so our range will
show you in a snapshot the best of what is out
In Chablis, Domaine Corinne & Jean Pierre
Grossot is anchored on the slopes of the famous village of
Fleys. Today, along with their youngest daughter Eve, renewed
passion is being invested in the vines and wine. The focus is on
the expression of 'terroir' to develop fine, elegant wines which
respect the traditional characteristics of Chablis. The 1er Cru
Mont de Milieu is sumptuous!
Further south, in the Côtes de Nuits, artisan winemaker Alain Burguet
is making his mark with a Gevrey Chambertin which respects all of
the history of the region yet shows the benefits of modern
techniques and a passionate craftsman. This outstanding wine now
benefits from some of the lowest sulphur levels on the market and
even if that means nothing to you, you will certainly notice the
results, a wine with bright fruit and remarkable purity.
In the Côte de Beaune, the wines from Domaine Laurent
Pillot really stand out, his St. Aubin 1er Cru is always a hit
at our tastings as well as his classic Pommard.
In the Châlonnais and Mâconnais we offer really classy wines at
an affordable price. Jean Paul Paquet at Domaine de
Fussiacus is making fantastic St Véran, achieving
ever more finesse and concentration. In the Châlonnais at Domaine
Jaegar-Defaix demand outstrips supply on occasions and
you taste their Rully 1er Cru wines you will see why.
An area of France that is certainly seeing something of
a revival, its fruity, lighter red wines being back are very
much in vogue and for the more health conscious, Beaujolais's
more delicate wines are a natural choice.
Our concise range can show off the essence of the region. At Domaine de
Colette the vineyards are farmed organically, albeit
uncertified, and yields are restricted to ensure concentration
and quality. At Domaine Berrod in Fleurie, their 22
hectares of vines are all grown on granite soil, producing velvety
smooth, elegant wines which whisper, not shout,
