Jadot Domaine Gagey Bourgogne Le Chapitre 2017 750ml
Jadot Domaine Gagey Bourgogne Le Chapitre 2017 750ml
Price: $44.99

This lovely ’17 Bourgogne Le Chapitre puts its succulent red fruits front and center in a plush yet vibrant profile that dances with lilac petals, fresh loam, and touches of spice, orange zest, and crushed river rocks. Dusty tannins and a nicely acidic spine offset the lushness of the wine’s fruits, and savory minerals and tart berries linger on the food-friendly, delicious finish. While you can enjoy this exceptionally detailed wine right away, it’ll drink beautifully over the medium term. Deriving from a vineyard with very old vines (about two-thirds planted in 1963), destemmed grapes ferment in either stainless steel or open top wooden vats for about a month, and the wine ages for eighteen months in barriques, one-third new. more info

Crisp berries dance against a backdrop of crushed herbs, rose petals and earth in this alluring Volnay that takes its time to unfold its myriad layers with grace and precision--it’s a tantalizing wine that underpins its luxurious and seductive complexity with sturdy core of acidity and a lively strain of minerality. You’ll be tempted to enjoy this sexy Volnay right away, but cellaring for a few years will make it even more glorious.

Price: $54.99

Sundrenched red berries and blue plums mingle with warm spices, fresh loam, savory herbs, and touches of wildflowers and minerals in Jadot’s muscular ’17 Le Vaucrain Rouge. Tightly wound with penetrating acidity, this wine will need a couple of years in the cellar before true approachability, but in time it’ll show a seamless, balanced beauty. Deriving from the estate’s almost nine-acre Le Vaucrain vineyard that’s situated just above Clos de la Marêchale, destemmed grapes ferment in vats for about a month, and the wine ages for eighteen months in barriques. more info

An abundance of juicy red fruits layer with notes of espresso, warm baking spices, crushed river rocks, and wildflower petals in Gay’s expressive ’16 Ladoix. Ideal for fans of round Burgundies, this Ladoix layers its fleshiness on its subtle but persistent minerality, chewy tannins, and vibrant acidity.

Chavy Chouet Meursault Narvaux 2017 750ml
Chavy Chouet Meursault Les Narvaux 2017 750ml
Price: $69.99

2017 saw a textbook-classic growing year for Meursault, and Chavy-Chouet’s ’17 Meursault Les Narvaux bursts with crisp orchard and zippy citrus fruits, layered on a framework of toasted nuts, crushed river rocks, white flowers petals and hints of toast and pressed herbs. Electric acidity animates the nicely hefty palate, and a sustained, balanced finish argues for age-worthiness. Situated above the premier cru appellations of Genevrières and Poruzots, the soils of Les Narvaux are clayey, chalky and shallow, and Chavy-Chouet’s 1.2-acre plot boasts vines that average sixty years of age; this proximity gives the wine the power and decadence of Genevrières and the flintiness of Poruzots. One of the many Meursault vineyards that makes a strong claim for premier cru status, this old-vine Meursault ferments in tank before aging in barrel, mostly new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. more info
Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Enseigneres 2017 750ml
Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres 2017 750ml
Price: $69.99

The product of a classic, sunny growing season, this ’17 Les Enseignères bursts from the glass in a shower of white stone fruits, quince, and pear that are framed with lime zest, acacia blossoms, and a touch of smoky minerals. This expressive wine relishes its tensions between its kinetic acidity and its dry extract, its sweet fruits and its savory minerality, and its nice weightiness and its inner lift. Although a village-level wine, Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères has always been an insider’s wine because it lies directly beneath the grand cru Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and shares much of the same power, richness and style at a fraction of the price. Deriving from the estate’s 2.5-acre clay and limestone Les Enseignères plot with 65-year-old vines, this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, mostly new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. While this wine can be enjoyed early, this Les Enseignères will only become more beautiful given some time in the cellar. more info
