BURGUNDY. PINOT NOIR'S HOLY GRAIL.

The wines produced from this stretch of vinous real estate are among the world’s greatest. Although they technically fall within Burgundian boundaries, areas such as Chablis and Beaujolais retain their own distinct identities, varietals and characteristics. The wines from Chablis are made from 100% Chardonnay, while in the south, the grape variety of Beaujolais is Gamay.

At the heart of Burgundy lies the Côte d’Or. It is divided into two distinct areas: the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. The Côte de Nuits is home to some of the wine world's most expensive vineyards. Inheritance laws have seen them divided into ever smaller family parcels, and within a sea of small producers, it is not uncommon for a single vineyard to have numerous owners. The vines are virtually all Pinot Noir, its soil heavier and clay-based. The Côte de Beaune, in the lower part of Burgundy central, is dominated by Chardonnay, with the priciest Chardonnay wines in the world coming from the village of Puligny-Montrachet.

BURGUNDY 2018 | AUCKLAND

The 2018 vintage in Burgundy has finally arrived after many shipping delays thanks to the eventful past year! It was a heatwave vintage that began with extremely wet winter months. While young vines struggled somewhat, the older vines ripened fully due to high water tables. This resulted in exceptionally healthy and clean fruit. Given that it was hot there was some initial doubt that the whites would shine, but the resulting fruit was bright and shows energetic freshness. The bonus for the reds was that there was no disease pressure, the fruit was pristine and healthy and the red wines are showing a wonderful freshness and vibrancy. We have gathered together a lovely line up across a variety of appellations, including 3 Grand Cru that will show off this remarkable character of this great vintage. We will be tasting: Michel Gros Fontaine St Martin Blanc Monopole 2018, Jean Chartron Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2018, Michel Gros Nuits St George 1er Cru 2018, Tortochot Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2018, Gros Frere Vosne Romanee 1er Cru 2018, Michel Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Gros Frere Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018, Tortochot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2018. Don't miss this stunning lineup!
