offer of the day…



GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN Les Croix des Champs 75cl 45.00 Swiss Francs
NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES La Charmotte 75cl 47.50
VOSNE-ROMANEE Aux Réas 75cl 66.00
NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Les Saint-Georges 75cl 85.00
CLOS DE VOUGEOT 75cl 109.00
RICHEBOURG 75cl 259.00

Observations? Well the villages wines are averagely priced except the Vosne, which, like the 1er cru Les St.Georges, is too expensive – though Thibault (and others) have applied to make this vineyard a grand cru; that said, versus may other producers, the grand crus are ‘better’ priced. It’s the first time in a while I’ve a seen a Richebourg below 300 SFr, and (for example) Mugneret-Gibourg’s Clos de Vougeot is about 25% more expensive – or at least the 2006 is! I have not rushed for my credit card though.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Hi Bill, it is always good to know what is going on in burgundy land by reading burgundy report. Given that the prices for grand crus are still “skyhigh” I found that there are still a few bottles of grand cru from older vintages from the producer Thomas Moillard available. What would you buy if you had the choice between RSV, Bonnes-Mares, Chambertin, Chambertin Beze and Clos Vougeot? What about the Malconsorts? Thanks, Alois

    Hi Alois. Historically I’ve bought the RSV (89, 91, 98, 99, 00), Bonnes-Mares and the Malconsorts. The others are also domaine wines so should show well – given time – I’d say 20 years whether 1er or grand cru, the style only started to change marginally in 2005 and then more approachable in 06 and 07.
    If you’d care to (private) mail me with the seller, I might buy some of the stuff you leave 😉
