Our Winning Vineyards
Last 2018 Burgundy stock; delicious price & really delicious content
We selected our last four vintage 2018 white Burgs for today’s offer. It’s a great combination of really sharp quality priced well. The last super-saver deal for this year (take a peek at the discount) , the last vintage 2018 offer as well as the last White Burg offer for 2023.
We included really fine domains (Leflaive, Sauzet, PYCM, Barraud,) as well as showcasing excellent vineyards. We know the vintage is great, just see below.
Dominique Lafon 2018 - The whites have great tension and freshness.
PYCM - This kind of vintage suits the way we work. The fruit was juicy, it brought a lot of finesse, a lot of energy, like 2009 or 2011. I’m very happy with the freshness of my 2018s
Andrew Jefford, WSG - quality is outstanding. The wines show both depth and vivacity as well as focus and precision, and are expected to age well.
Today’s 6-pack offer comprises two bottles of each of the ebullient Leflaive and Barraud. Then there are single bottles of the smashing, tight, Sauzet Puligny and the razor sharp PYCM. Enjoy all of them right now, or over the next few years. Please see attached notes for full info
- Leflaive Macon Verge Macconais 2018
Neal Martin - Made in the same way as their great Pulignys' from the Domaine, but comes at a fraction of the price. It has Leflaive's trademark balance between weight and minerality and is stunningly complex and satisfying. It comes from nine different vineyards over 13 hectares and is matured in stainless steel, concrete and a small amount of used oak. It has pretty Granny Smith apple and wet limestone aromas that are well defined. The palate is crisp and fresh, with a strong citric element and a touch of sour lemon toward the powerful finish. 91/100
- Barraud En Buland Vieilles Vignes Puilly Fuisse 2018
William Kelley, The Wine Advocate - Showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of fresh peach, pear and citrus oil mingled with hints of freshly baked bread and warm pastry. Full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's racy and incisive, with excellent depth at the core, tangy acids and a long, mineral finish. This is the most concentrated and the most tensile of Barraud's wines this year, and it is also likely to prove the longest lived. Drink 2020–2035. 93/100
- Sauzet Puligny Montrachet Village 2018
Cellartracker - Absolutely delicious. Creamy and buttery, subtle pear and apricots. Very sophisticated and elegant. This was a great en Primeur purchase and glad I've still got 5 bottles of this nectar. 93/100
- Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Hautes Cotes de Beaune Au Bout du Monde 2018
Cellartracker 2021 - A beautiful, remarkably fresh and precise effort - most likely the cool micro-climate of the lieu-dit must've helped a lot here. The acidity is so much higher than anything I would've expected from the vintage, lending so much verve and almost electric energy to the wine. The overall feel is still extremely youthful - although not particularly primary, fortunately - and based on the slightly reductive edge of the wine, this will keep wonderfully for many, many more years. A very impressive effort for the lowly appellation - enormously rewarding already now, but will get so much better if given enough age. Outstanding value. 93/100
