CHABLIS GRAND CRU “MOUTONNE” – MONOPOLE

$230.00

“La Moutonne” is a vineyard nestled in a natural amphitheatre at the heart of the Grand Cru sector of the historic age-old Chablis wine country. Its shape and ideal location make it a natural solar receptor. Sitting 95% in “Vaudésir” and 5% in “Les Preuses” (formerly owned by the Pontigny monks), “La Moutonne” is a monopole meaning Domaine Long-Depaquit is the sole owner. With its south/south-eastern exposure and a steep slope of almost 40%, this vineyard is protected from north winds.

TASTING

The nose is evocative of fleshy fruit (peach, nectarine) with discreet citrus and floral notes (jasmine, violet). Full-bodied and generous on the palate with very distinct marly minerality due to the micro-terroir. Immensely fresh, light, and supple with hints of oak and exceptional length.

CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY

$135.00

The small village of Chambolle-Musigny is located at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis. Its name is derived from that of an ancient Celtic village, “Cambola”. Pinot Noir is planted exclusively in this small appellation, which is one of the jewels of the Côte and part of Burgundy’s viticultural heritage. The vineyard is based at the mouth of a valley. The clay content of the soil is inferior to the other villages, which could partly explain the “femininity” frequently pointed out in Chambolle’s wines.

TASTING

The nose is ethereal and delicate, redolent of black cherry with discrete, elegant floral notes of rose and violet. Very soft on the palate, it offers well-balanced structure and bold, yet fine, smooth tannins. Lovely intense, fruity finish.

CHÉNE LA BUTTE PREMIER CRU

$135.00

100% Chardonnay

Premier Cru- Single Vineyard- Cumières (Limited Production less than 500 bottles)

36 months on lees. Another stunning example of single vineyard biodynamic Champagne. If you are expecting a bold, creamy blanc de blanc forget it as this Champagne is all about a very present acidity and backbone. A much more direct and cleaner style than those traditionally made in Champagne, underpinned by stone fruits, lime , slight hints of brioche and vanilla. Another stunning food wine especially for seafood and shellfish inspired dishes, a true Champagne drinkers Champagne and perfect for someone who loves single variatel Champagnes.

CÔTES DE NUITS – GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN

$140.00

A famous appellation from the Côte de Nuits, known as much for its size as for its great wines, Gevrey-Chambertin boasts a wide diversity of terroirs. There is no white wine here, only Pinot Noir is cultivated. The vines grow in marl-based soil covered with scree and red silt from the plateau. The gravel contributes to this wine’s elegance and delicateness while the clayey marls, which are rich in shellfish fossils lend body and firmness to the wine.

Tasting

Aromas of ripe red and black fruit on the nose with notes of oak and spice. Over the years it will develop more animal notes, like musk and fur. Silky, structured, tannic and well-balanced on the palate. The same fruit found on the first nose reappears on the finish.

CREAMANT DE BOURGOGNE – BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS ‘PURE’

$45.00

Our Crémant de Bourgogne Pure is the perfect reflection of its origin: carefully selected Côte-d’Or vines. These terroirs produce wines, whose exceptional qualities allow an ambitious ageing. A big part of this cuvee is vinified and aged in oak barrels; this is exceptional for the sparkling wines.

TASTING

Very fine, even bubbles. Discreet hints of white blossoms and a nice minerality. It is lively and the mouth is fresh and delicate. This Crémant Blanc de Blancs is the purest expression of its terroir.

CREAMANT DE BOURGOGNE – BRUT RESERVE

$50.00

The variety of the grapes and the choice of their origins are the result of our constant search for balance. The Chardonnay brings tension, white flowers and minerality; the Pinot Noir brings fruit, density and vinosity. This cuvee owes its originality to our savoir-faire, bringing together the vinosity of the base wines and the tension due to the light dosage of this Crémant Brut.

TASTING

Fine, even bubbles. The nose boasts notes of citrus (lime, pink grapefruit) and white blossoms which pave the way for vivacity and freshness on the palate.
Clean and precise with beautiful length.

CREAMANT DE BOURGOGNE – BRUT ROSÉ

$40.00

Thanks to its subtle colour and its aromatic profile, our Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé is a “wine of pleasure”! The Pinot Noir offers delight and intense fruit aromas whereas the Chardonnay brings the floral notes and its freshness. The Gamay is the perfect additional touch, thanks to its crispness and liveliness.

TASTING

Fine, even bubbles. Berries (blackcurrant, raspberry) on the nose with a touch of citrus, followed by a delectable palate bursting with vivacity and freshness.

FIXIN

$100.00

The wines from Fixin (pronounced “Fissin”) also have the right to bear the Côte de Nuits Villages appellation. The gentle slopes are a common occurrence around the village, with as much as 80 metres difference between the highest and lowest vines.

Tasting

Delicate and discrete, the nose features subtle notes of forest undergrowth. Fleshy and robust, this crisp, oaky wine offers harmonious balance. The finish is long with slightly spicy notes.
