Wines in the box:
Chataeu de Messey, Les Chouettes, 2021
It's a blend of 50% from the Clos and 50% from the vineyard by the Chateau, and in 10 year old barriques, and 3 yr old foudres. Named Chouettes (owls) out of respect, as at Messey they put so much into letting nature and the eco-system have its say in the area, which creates an environment in the vineyard where chemicals are not needed.
Thierry Mortet, Bourgogne Rouge, 2020
Aged for 14 months in old oak and a few months in cuve, this is a working man’s Gevrey-Chambertin – from vines of the same village, displaying much of the same quality and breed of its illustrious neighbouring vineyards. Silky soft and perfumed, this is what good Burgundy is all about. Notes on the producer.
Wild yeast ferment in old, large oak fermenters with maturation in older oak too. It is bottled unfiltered with minimal SO2 added for stability. This is almost as far north in burgundy that you find Pinot Noir. It is light juicy and dangerously drinkable. The wines of Goisot are remarkably good value still. One of the best value Burgundy estates in my opinion.
Domaine Bouard Bonnefoy, Bourgogne Blanc, 2021
Pure Chardonnay grown in southeast-facing estate vineyard (lieu-dit) ‘Plantelonge,’ just east of villages-level vineyard ‘Les Pierres’ in Chassagne-Montrachet. Hand-harvested are pressed in an upright wooden press, cranked by hand. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels. Aged for one year in barrel, with 20% new oak.
Domaine Garnier Et Fils, Petit Chablis, 2021
More complexity than you'd imagine from the AOC and honestly is much better than a lot of Chablis at the price. Always a solid bet.
Saint-Bris is the only appellation in Burgundy that grows Sauvignon Blanc, with similar soils to Chablis bringing mineral notes to the wine. Grapes are harvested relatively late to help express the terrior. Fully destemmed before a slow and gentle pneumatic pressing, the malolactic fermentation is allowed and the wine is matured in stainless steel on its fine lees. Fining and/or filtration only when required. Savvy B with a difference! Complex and delicious.
