MEURSAULT – DOMAINE DE PAVILLION

$135.00

Located in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is one of the flagship villages and among the most reputed in Burgundy. In fact, Meursault is often referred to as the capital of Burgundy’s great whites. Aerial photos of the village town hall’s multi-coloured varnished roof tiles are world famous.

TASTING

Our white Meursault is bright, luminous straw yellow in colour. The nose boasts a discrete touch of toast followed by elegant floral notes underpinned by fruity, light plum and pear aromas. The palate is powerful, well balanced and dense, with delicious flavours of brioche. The finish is long and very aromatic.

MOULIN-À-VENT

$40.00

Covering 5.2 ha (12.85 acres) within the 660 ha (1631 acres) of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, our vines are ideally located at the heart of one of the 18 recognized single vineyards, Rochegrès, where, as its name, “grey rock”, suggests, the granitic parent rock is visible at the surface in the vineyards. These vines benefit from mainly south-eastern exposure and thrive in very pure, lean pink granitic soil. This forces them to plunge their roots deep down in search of the nutrients they need. Our Moulin-à-Vent Domaine de Rochegrès is crafted with grapes from different terroirs: La Rochelle, au Mont and from the youngest vines in Rochegrès.

TASTING

Floral and full-flavoured, this beautiful wine exudes aromas of rose and dark wild berries with an expressive mineral base. The palate is generous, with structure that is both complex and harmonious. The finish is intense and subtly flavoured.

POMMARD “CLOS DES URSULINES” – MONOPOLE

$125.00

The “Clos des Ursulines”, a peaceful haven dotted with centuries-old pine trees, is located at the heart of Pommard. It is undoubtedly this tranquillity that once enchanted the nuns from the Ursuline convent who were the first owners of the estate. This almost 4-hectare (9.8 acre) “monopole” is located at the southern end of the Pommard appellation toward Volnay. Thanks to its unique terroir, this wine challenges the widely spread myth that Pommard wines are more “masculine”.

TASTING

This Pommard “Clos des Ursulines” reveals a fruity nose redolent of cherry, blackcurrant and fig. Over the years these aromas will evolve toward notes of coffee and leather. Full and round on the palate with ripe tannins and rich, but not heavy, substance. This wine is powerful and well-structured yet remains subtle, elegant and almost “feminine” due to the vineyard’s proximity to Volnay. The finish is silky and velvety.

VOSNE-ROMANÉE – DOMAINE DU CLOS FRANTIN

$140.00

It is in this small village with 210 ha (518 acres) of vines located in the northern Côte de Nuits that the most renowned Burgundy reds such as Romanée-Conti and Richebourg are produced. Both the villages of Vosne-Romanée and Flagey-Echézeaux are authorized to use the Vosne-Romanée appellation. Our vines are located in the Damaudes and Maizières vineyards – an alliance between 2 opposed yet very complementary terroirs

Tasting

The nose of this Vosne-Romanée features tobacco, tea and mild notes of spice. The palate is velvety with silky tannins, lovely fullness and remarkable balance. The finish is long and aromatic.
