2019 Burgundy - A Stunning Vintage
We've curated a list of some of our favourites from the highly lauded 2019 Burgundy vintage. Showing fantastically now but would also welcome a short sleep in the cellar, these are perfect for an introduction to the region as well as for the collector of the vaunted land of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Chablis! Chablis! Chablis!
We will keep yelling Chablis until you try these producers, then you'll be joining in. With all the price rises seen in Burgundy, we have found two fantastic Chablis producers that buck the pricing trend. Both Chantemerle and Pierrick Laroche have produced wines that exhibit the best qualities of the region; freshness, purity and the distinct saline edge. From Petit Chablis, through AC and to Premier Cru, there's a wine here for everyone.
A New Discovery - Domaine Chantal Lescure
This is the first time these have officially hit Australian shores. I was fortunate enough to have been exposed to Chantal Lescure by a French run cellar in Berlin of all places. Cheekily I snuck a few back to Australia via my trusty suitcase and have since dug into a stunning 2015 Beaune 1er Cru ‘Les Chouacheux’ and a surprisingly elegant 2011 Nuits St Georges. Very glad we can now find these locally and even better that they come in at cracking prices for Burgundy. Jeremy Muller, FWC.
