Champs de l'Abbaye 2019 Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay

The Hasard’s Bourgogne Blanc is made from hand-harvested and certified organic Chardonnay grown on a limestone/clay parcel in Aluze, next to Mercurey. The native-yeast fermentation lasts 10 months in barrel and only minimal SO2 is added at bottling. The 2019 is more fruit-forward on the nose, with aromas of dried mango, pear followed by ripe yellow fruits and river rocks. The palate is mineral, saline, and layered with notes of dried apricot, fennel, white flowers, and stone on a very generous finish. An excellent value white Burgundy that would pair well with oysters, cheeses, or roast chicken with herbs.

Chandon de Briailles 2019 Corton Grand Cru Blanc (Sans Soufre Ajoute)

This has often been overlooked in the Chandon range, but only to the detriment of white Burgundy lovers everywhere. This is white wine made from parcels traditionally devoted to red, planted by Claude's mother at the beginning of the 1980s when there was a shortage of quality Pinot Noir vine material. The wine spreads across Corton-Bressandes, Chaumes, and Renardes. This has always been a favorite of mine. The wine ages beautifully but also drinks well young, as it sees no new oak, no stirring and ultimately feels fresh even in warmer vintages. This 2019, bottled with no sulfur, is incredible. It's brilliantly citrus-y, with great power and focus and quite giving now but will doubtless improve. Sam Ehrlich

Chapuis & Chapuis 2020 Bourgogne Blanc

The Chapuis brothers come from a viticultural family in Aloxe but created their own domaine in 2009 after years of working both abroad and in the cellar of Philippe Pacalet. The fruit is a combination of negoce and domaine and they are in their third year of organic conversion. The wines are made with an absolute minimum of fuss, with little to no new oak and added sulfur only when deemed absolutely necessary. This Bourgogne Blanc is the kind of white Burgundy that I've been craving and drinking often recently, with lovely open aromatics of crisp green apple, preserved lemon and sea shells. On the palate, the wine feels racy and fresh, with more citrus and floral notes and a salty savory character that will make a great companion to crab or oysters this holiday season. Sam Ehrlich

Chazelles (Domaine des) 2019 Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes

Viré Classé is a privileged location in the Macon that enjoys a fantastic exposure to the sun on a slight slope. This yields wines that have an added weight and complexity compared to your run-of-the-mill Macon-Villages. At Chazelles, organic vines with over 50 years of age broadcast dense flavors of golden apple and stone fruit with an invigorating touch of acid. This is a great Chardonnay with concentration and freshness that could age beautifully for years.

Domaine de l'Enclos 2019 Petit Chablis

Historically, Petit Chablis was often sneered at as something that rarely resembled Chablis. However, the leaps and bounds that have been made in the vineyards and the cellar mean that the overall quality of this humble appellation has grown exponentially in recent years. This is certainly the case at Domaine de L'Enclos. The estate is young but the Bouchard brothers have years of experience producing serious Chablis from organically farmed vineyards. While the 2018 was weightier, the 2019 is a more elegant wine. There is plenty of lemon and ripe green apple fruit and a great overall feeling of balance, with lovely acidity. The minerality is very exposed and becomes more intense as the wine sits in the glass. Excellent for the price and a terrific everyday white Burgundy. Sam Ehrlich

Dominique Gruhier 2018 Crémant de Bourgogne Extra Brut

The 2018 Cremant from Dominique Gruhier is 65% Pinot Noir/35% Chard, farmed organically and planted on classic Kimmeridgien soils. The fruit leans towards delicate red berries, with an anchor of limestone in the mid-palate that immediately reminds one just how close Dominique is to Chablis. The bubbles are quite fine and there is no shortage of acid or freshness. An excellent value and a great sub for Champagne without paying Champagne prices. Sam Ehrlich

Famille Paquet 2020 Bourgogne Chardonnay

The Paquet family is based in the Maconnais. They have nearly thirty hectares across a dozen appellations, all farmed organically and on the way to certification. This is their entry-level Chardonnay and it is delightful, full of lime and green herbs, with clear mineral tones and good freshness. There is no oak influence at all and no funny business. This is just tasty Chardonnay grown in limestone soils, perfect as we emerge from the ice and snow into  Spring.  Sam Ehrlich

Frantz Chagnoleau 2020 Macon-Villages Clos Saint Pancras

Frantz Chagnoleau's wines are store favorites these days. The "Clos Saint Pancras" is a single parcel of vines averaging 30 years, in lightly chalky soils with a lot of small stones. This is juicy and bright, with lime, crisp white peach fruit and white flowers. The back end is distinctly stony and fresh. Aged in a combination of older barrels and tank, this shows no trace of oak. Really, this is so appealing and tasty - a classic bistro wine in the best sense. Sam Ehrlich

Guillemot-Michel 2018 Viré-Clessé Une Bulle

The Guillemot-Michel "Une Bulle" comes from a tiny parcel of old vines on limestone with red clay, high in iron. The wine is a Pet-Nat (Methode Ancestrale) that is bottled after a short period of fermentation, leaving enough sugar in the wine for the fermentation to continue and create the desired bubbles. The wine is aged in bottle on the lees for around 18 months, then riddled and disgorged and re-bottled with a bit more "Une Bulle."  The result is a very delicious aged Pet-Nat showing honeyed aromas of pear and white peach with hints of almond, marzipan and brioche. On the palate the mousse is soft and creamy with flavors of peach and quince  with lime-flower and minerals and a long finish of white fruits, citrus peel and firm acidity. This is a delightful wine to sip by itself or pair with mild cheeses, patés and terrines, fruit desserts..  David Lillie

Guillemot-Michel 2018 Viré-Clessé Quintaine

Here's a white Burgundy with the perfect weight and texture to complement your Thanksgiving dinner - and at a reasonable price!  We're extremely happy to have the wines of Guillemot-Michel back at Chambers Street! Along with Jean and Gautier Thevenet, and Julien Guillot at Vignes du Maynes, they are making white Burgundies with more depth and minerality than anything comparably priced in the Cote D'Or. The 2018 Quintaine is a gorgeous white Burgundy, showing a brilliant pale gold color and complex aromas of poached pear, almond, candied lemon, kiwi, stone and lime-flower, elegant and quite beautiful. The palate is round and dense, a bit riper than the 2017, with firm acidity, showing cool stone fruits and citrus with caramel, stone and mineral flavors. The finish is long and very mineral, with chalky white fruits lingering on the palate. This is a young wine, give it some time in a carafe if possible. (At a recent tasting, the 1989 and 1990 were showing beautifully, so put a few in the cellar!) Beautiful wine - congratulations to Pierrette, Marc, Sophie and son-in-law Gautier!

Guillemot-Michel 2019 Viré-Clessé Retour a la Terre

Created in 2017, this cuvee is issued from grapes in the "Champ-Rond" vineyard, vinified in amphora of 800 liters. The 65 year-old vines are grafted on "Riparia Gloire de Montpellier" an old root-stock obtained in 1880, giving very low yields with magnificent small grapes, of a deep gold color. The Retour a la Terre presents the exotic notes typical of the domaine with an extra dimension of expression due to the respiration of the amphora. The small grapes of "Champ-Rond" ripen beautifully without a high degree of alcohol -  they are picked on the last day of the harvest, and the elevage in amphora gives the wine a great purity.  The wine shows elegant floral, white fruit, apricot, lemon and stone aromas. The palate is round, dense and silky with fabulous length. This is a superb white Burgundy that is delicious now and will cellar beatifully for fifteen to twenty years. Highly recommended!

Lafouge 2016 Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés Blanc

From a north-facing parcel fairly high on the slope next to Meursault Les Vireuils. The Lafouge "Les Hautés" is a beautifully dense and well-structured Burgundy in this low-yielding vintage.Subtle, rather delicate aromas of lime-flower and citrus, with white fruits, stone and honeysuckle. The palate is fresh and bright with mineral flavors predominating, with pear, lemon peel and herbal notes, quite pure and refreshing, and beginning to show some notes of maturity. The opposite of an oaky fruit-bomb, this is beautifully showing the terroir and benefits from the years in bottle - it will accompany shellfish, sole, flounder, cod, white meats and young goat cheeses.

The wine shows a bright gold color with aromas of spiced pear and apple, melon, honeysuckle, stone, flint and lemon zest. The palate is dense and well structured with ripe white fruits, toasted almond, citrus and flinty mineral flavors - quite ripe but with firm citrusy acids and fabulous length.  Serve now with sole meunier, turbot and cod - this will be a beautiful wine with 5 to 8 years of cellaring.

The palate is rich and ripe with white fruits and exotic citrus covering the chalky core, with firm acidity and mineral flavors in the finish. Serve with full-flavored fish dishes, poultry and white meats, mild cheeses. This is a beautiful young Meursault that is delicious now and over the next ten years. (12 btls only)

Maison Petit-Roy 2019 Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc

From a terrifically steep and cold parcel tucked back in the combe behind 1er Cru Sous Fretille, this is more linear than the Beaune blanc. There is still the citrus peel character and some stone fruit, but it feels crisper and more savory. The mineral character at the back end is complemented by a lemon-y/orange-y sherbet note that I am a sucker for. Sam Ehrlich

Morey, Pierre 2018 Bourgogne Blanc

The 2018 Pierre Morey Bourgogne Blanc, sourced from three parcels in Meursault, is a show-stopper of a wine. Upon opening, it shows lemon, a touch of creme brulee crust in the nose and an overall sense of richness that one would expect in a solar vintage such as this one. However, this is all held firmly in check by plenty of acidity and a sense of salty minerality that comes to dominate the wine. It is spilling over with chalk and cool stoniness, adding tension and focus as it sits in the glass. Everything else kind of fades away, leaving only you and the earth. This is magnificent for the level and will satisfy Burgundy cravings tonight or in five years if you are inclined to put a few bottles in the cellar.  Sam Ehrlich

Rateau 2020 Côte de Beaune Grande Chatelaine

About a kilometer or two northwest of the Beaune 1er Crus, La Grande Chatelain is a cooler site with soils comprised of clay over limestone. The 2020 Clos de la Grande Chatelain has fresh cool-toned aromatics of white flowers,  nectarine, rainwater,  and pear skin. The medium-bodied palate is a little warmer toned  offering flavors of nectarine, white peach, and crushed herb with a fairly savory finish.  The 2020 vintage was hot and dry and the harvest was very early, but Rateau's whites retain good acidity and crispness, especially from this  cooler high-altitude climat.  This is generous and makes for a lovely quaffer, as well as a beautiful partner with shellfish or milder cheeses.

Jean-Claude Rateau makes lovely Biodynamic wines in the Hautes-Côtes-de-Beaune in his east-facing vineyard of clay/limestone and marne soils.  In the 2020 vintage,  the wine is quite round and lucious showing floral aromas with almond, ripe pear, apple and spice with hints of citrus. The palate is silky and supple and more ripe than usual, but perfectly balanced with pear, citrus and stone flavors, with terrific length and firm acidity. This food friendly wine will accompany everything from oysters and grilled seafood to roast chicken and mild cheeses. Delicious now or cellar for 5 to 8 years. This is a delightful Burgundy and a great value!

Tripoz 2018 Pouilly-Loché 1er Reserve

From vines just outside Pouilly itself, this sees nearly two years in oak. Apparently in 2019, they had to fight to get AOC status for this. The authorities found "oxidative"notes that they felt rendered it unworthy of an appellation designation. After tasting this wine, I am baffled. This is superb, full fruited with tropical and citrus notes and an incredible mineral thread. There is great intensity and beautiful acidity. Honestly, when we at the store tasted this we were all flattened by it. Don't miss out. Sam Ehrlich

Tripoz 2019 Macon-Loché Cuvée du Clocher - Sans Soufre

In 2019 Laurent and Celine bottled a portion of their signature still wine without sulfur and we are so glad. The difference is most noticeable in the first hour, as the wine jumps out of the glass with more exotic fruit notes than the sulfured version, as well as intense floral notes. The bright juicy Meyer lemon-stained palate that made the 2018 so enjoyable is on full display here and the acidity is bright and racy. This is excellent. The evening I spent drinking this side by side with its sibling was not just fun but fascinating as the the two bottles drew closer together the longer they sat in the glass. Sam Ehrlich

Morey, Pierre 2019 Monthelie

Historically, the Pierre Morey reds have gotten short shrift. Pierre is one of the greats. He helped pioneer biodynamics in the Cote de Beaune and was always hailed for his whites but his reds often felt a bit stingy and lean. With age they often developed into scintillating wines but patience was always required. However, under his daughter Anne's guidance the wines have become increasingly more accessible and satisfying in their youth, without sacrificing core material. This '19 Monthelie is sourced from six parcels, averaging more than sixty years old, and the vintage character is on full display. The vibrant red berry fruit is mouthfilling and full, with hints of fresh thyme, pomegranate seed and a quiet touch of wood spice. But the intensity and concentration is balanced by really tangy zippy acid, almost like a cherry lime rickey. We tasted this as a team and were totally charmed, putting away the bottle in short order. Sam Ehrlich

Rateau 2020 Beaune Les Prevoles

Jean-Claude Rateau's domain has been Biodynamic since 1979 and produces lovely light-bodied, old fashioned Burgundies. The 2020 Beaune Les Prévoles (a lieu-dit below 1er Cru Chouacheux and les Tuvilains) shows beautiful ripe aromas of cherry and black raspberry with rose, earth, citrus and brown spice.  The palate is chalky, ripe and sapid, showing the density of the 2020s but with lovely brightness and balance, with lush berry fruits enveloping firm acidity and mineral flavors. Really a lovely wine and quite delicous now, full and ripe enough for grilled meats, as well as chicken and pork dishes and cheeses such as morbier, tomme de savoie. This should benefit from a bit of aging but is quite beautiful as a young wine, best perhaps 2023 - 2030.  David Lillie

The palate is light but sapid, and beautifully flavored with bright cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit supported by fresh acidity. There is excellent length of berry fruits, mineral flavors and citrusy acids in the finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir to serve cool with chicken and game birds, fish in sauce, grilled pork and mild cheeses - just delicious!  David Lillie

When it comes to Burgundy, Chevillon is in the hall of fame. The wines may have gotten more expensive, but there is no doubt that the family is still at the very top of the Nuits Saint Georges pyramid.  And like every great domaine, the wines are excellent from the most humble appellation to the grandest. Chevillon's Passetoutgrains is a CSW favorite. Always full of vibrant red fruit, white pepper and the kind of black tea and leafy notes  that set NSG just a little bit apart from its neighbors. Give this a quick decant when you take the turkey out of the oven to rest and it'll wow everyone at dinner. Sam Ehrlich

Vignes du Maynes 2019 Mâcon-Cruzille Manganite

Made from Gamay Petit Grains planted in 1953, grown on a limestone parcel high in magnesium, in the Clos des Vignes du Maynes in Cruzille, organic since 900 AD (!), now certified Biodynamic. The energetic Julien Guillot vinifies his reds without sulfur or additives of any kind, producing complex, mineral, elegant wines that transcend their appellation.  The 2019s here are extraordinary, showing the elegance, purity and balance typical of the estate with the wonderful density and ripeness of the vintage. The wine shows gorgeous red and black fruit aromas with cranberry, earth, stone and musk and hints of mint, chocolate and spice. The palate is bright and intense with blackberry, citrus, stone and earthy flavors, that continue on the very long mineral finish. Always one of the greatest Gamays produced anywhere, the 2019 Manganite is a young wine that will benefit from decanting or five to fifteen years in the cellar. Highly recommended!
