The eagle-eyed may have spotted a reference to a special series of Burgundy offers in yesterday’s Thibault Liger-Belair mailer.That was actually the opening offer of our Fete du Bourgogne: a two week celebration of the wines of the Cote d’Or, with offers spanning the breadth and depth of Burgundy.
Since the frustrations of this year’s en primeur season, when it was nigh-on impossible to eke decent allocations out of domaines whose vineyards had been savaged by the 2021 weather, we have been doing our best to accumulate some stock from the region.In addition to some exciting 2021s – there are some beautifully classical reds but also truly thrilling whites from this vintage – we cast our nets to capture some 2020s, 2019s and even the occasional 2018.After all, quantities aside, Burgundy has been enjoying an epic run in terms of quality so why limit ourselves to only the most recent vintage?
Over the next two weeks Vinum’s regular mailers – on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – will be devoted to some of the finest wines of Burgundy.Next Saturday will be ‘on theme’ with a report on the recent Burgfest tasting, of 2019 whites, that I attended back in May.Fete du Bourgogne will be drawn to a close with a very special offer featuring some of the gems of our portfolio…I’m going to keep the specifics under wraps but these are some of the rarest and most sought-after wines in the world.
Not all of our offers will be taken from the very top drawer as I want Fete du Bourgogne to feature wines at all price points and something for everyone (as long as you love Burgundy, of course!).Some of the highlights we have planned include:
2020s from Sylvain Pataille – a cult grower who’s made collectors wake up to the potential of Marsannay.
A fabulous parcel of benchmark village Gevrey from Pierre Duroche, one of the region’s new stars.
Great depth of stock from Cocquard-Loison-Fleurot that is heavily weighted towards the Grand Crus.
Philippe Colin 2021s from Bourgogne Blanc to Chevalier Montrachet.
If you’re a Burgundy lover please keep an eye on your inbox during the course of our festival.Putting this together has been a lot of fun and I look forward to bringing you some brilliant wines over the next couple of weeks.In the meantime, have a great weekend and maybe uncork a nice bottle or two from those vineyards to the south of Dijon…
