The Burgundy Christmas Collection

The Burgundy Christmas Collection

Ref: A1219

An elegant pair of Burgundies, perfect for spreading joy and happiness over Christmas.

Includes three bottles of Chablis Bois d'Yver which exhibits a steely fruitiness combined with a clean, crisp freshness and a generous weight.

Georges Pico and his partner, Eliana Puentes, started out in a major supporting role, about six years’ ago, when we were looking for another source of village-Chablis, due to the shortage of supply from the Pinson brothers. The wines of Domaine de Bois d’Yver had come second in our investigative tastings in the early 1990’s and we had always remembered them as serious contenders for a place on our list.

This is an extensive 13 hectare domaine hidden-away on the back roads out of Chablis towards Courgis. They only started bottling their own wines in the mid-1980’s and took a while to establish themselves. However, today this is an estate that has gained a worldwide reputation for itself as a producer of Chablis and some 1er Cru wines (although very different to those of the Pinsons). Above all, they are wines that reflect their ‘terroir’.

Plus three bottles of Bourgogne A.C. Pinot Noir 2016, Chateau de la Charrière
Domaine Vincent Girardin, Santenay

100 % Pinot Noir grown on clay soil from vines with an average age of 35 years old, this is an approachable soft easy drinking wine which belies its humble appellation as a simple Bourgogne rouge. It has a good amount of mouthfilling fruit with red berries to the fore and well balanced soft tannins on the palate. Aged in oak barrels, of which 10% are new, it spends between 10 to 12 months before being bottled in the waning phase of the moon. 2016 12.5% ABV

The grapes are hand picked and sorting takes place in both the vineyard and on a sorting table in the winery.
After their passage on the sorting table, the grapes are totally destemmed and then macerate for 15 days in vats. This period commences with 5 days’ cold maceration with the object of extracting the fruit characters from the grapes. This is followed by an increase in temperature during which pumping over and punching down liberates the tannins present in the grape skins. And finally, the temperature is raised to around 32°C for 5 to 7 days to stabilise colour and tannins.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.

Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
