The prices are always high for this combination of producer and merchant – but this remains a favourite producer of mine…
*As always with this merchant – there’s an additional Swiss purchase tax of 7.7% to add, but then the prices are delivered…

offer of the day – domaine ferret pouilly-fuissé 2020

By billn on June 14, 2022 #the market

Whilst these wines were once quite expensive not much cheaper more than 10 years ago, their prices have remained impressively stable – though possibly not next year after the decimation of their 2021 yields. Below are the prices of their 2020s – which are unchanged since their 2017s. Still, only two cuvées are offered but my Swiss merchant expanded the offer to include larger formats in this vintage. I bought some 2020 (neither of these cuvées) direct from the domaine and the prices are comparable.

POUILLY-FUISSE Tête de Cru Les Perrières 2020 75cl 42.00 (*Swiss francs)
POUILLY-FUISSE Hors Classe Les Ménétrières 2020 75cl 52.00

*Delivered price, but Swiss purchase tax is still to be added – 7.7%.

Offer of the day – Domaine d’Eugénie 2018

By billn on May 20, 2022 #the market

From my usual Swiss source:

In brackets, you will see the prices of the 2017s and, as usual, — means not offered

Domaine d’Eugénie 2018:
Vosne-Romanée 2018 75cl 79.00 (75.00)* (Swiss Francs)
Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées 2018 75cl — (188.00)

Clos Vougeot 2018 75cl 359.00 (349.00)
Echézeaux 2018 75cl 359.00 (349.00)

Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots 2018 75cl 148.00 (—)

The price you see is ‘delivered’ but ex 7.7% Swiss purchase tax. It seems that 80-. is becoming common-place for even a villages wine these days – yet all the domaines are sold-out and their 2021s are fully reserved – which doubtless leaves them asking themselves ‘Why did we price so low?!‘ …

offer of the day – domaine leflaive 2019 & 2020 mâconnais & chalonnaise

By billn on May 08, 2022 #the market

DOMAINE LEFLAIVE 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020
Mâcon-Verzé 2017, 2018, 2019 75cl 33.00 (Swiss francs*)
Mâcon-Verzé Les Chênes 2017, 2018, 2019 75cl 38.00
Mâcon-Verzé Le Monté 2019 75cl 39.00
Pouilly-Fuissé 2020 (2019, 2018) 75cl 52.00 (49.00, 49.00)
Rully 1er Cru Leflaive & Associés 2017, 2018, 2020 75cl 49.00
Image, right, ex-Domaine Leflaive

As usual from this merchant, the prices are ‘delivered’ but without the mandatory 7.7% purchase tax. Save for a little jump for the Pouilly, stable as she goes…

offer of the day – Angerville 2020

By billn on May 01, 2022 #the market

The prices from my usual merchant in Switzerland:

Domaine Marquis d’Angerville 2020 (in brackets the prices of the 2019s, 2018s and then the 2016s – I never saw 2017s…)
Volnay 1er Cru 2020 75cl 85.00 (79.00, 75.00, —)* (Swiss Francs)
Volnay Fremiet 1er Cru 2020 75cl 115.00 (105.00, 105.00, 105.00)
Volnay Champans 1er Cru 2020 75cl 149.00 (129.00, 129.00, 129.00)
Volnay Clos des Ducs 1er Cru 2020 75cl 248.00 (215.00, 198.00, —)

These 2020s are available for delivery only at the end of this year. The price you see is ‘delivered’ but ex 7.7% Swiss purchase tax. That’s a jump!

offer of the day – clos de tart 2020

By billn on April 25, 2022 #the market

WP_20141101_011

Here are the Clos de Tart 2020s from my local merchant.

You can compare these prices to those of the 2019, 2018, 2017 & 2016s which are in the brackets – from the same merchant source. — indicates ‘not offered.’

Onwards and upwards for the pricing here – but as a benchmark, almost the same price as DRC’s 2019 Grands-Echézeaux – assuming that you are on the ‘first-tier’ list of the distributors, and half the price (okay nearly 60%) of DRC’s Richebourg and Romanée Saint-Vivant…

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2020 75cl 648.00 (595.00, 498.00, 498.00, 448.00)* Swiss francs
Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2020 150cl 1,356.00 (—, 1,050.00, 1,026.00, 926.00)
Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2020 300cl 2,842.00 (2,630, 2,300.00, 2,042, 2,042.00)
La Forge de Tart 1er Cru 2020 75cl 195.00 (—, 189.00, 169.00, 188.00)

* Including delivery, but not including Swiss purchase tax of 7.7%

offer of the day – william fevre 2020

By billn on April 15, 2022 #the market

From my usual Swiss importer source. The prices of the 2019s, 2018s, 2017s, 2016s and 2015s from previous years are in brackets for you to compare (— means not offered).

DOMAINE WILLIAM FEVRE CHABLIS 2020
CHABLIS Village 75cl 24.00 (—, 22.00, 22.00, 22.00, 19.00) Swiss Francs*
PREMIERS CRUS
CHABLIS Vaillons 75cl 42.00 (39.50, —)
CHABLIS Montmains 75cl 42.00 (—)
CHABLIS Montée de Tonnerre 75cl 54.00 (49.50, 48.00, 48.00, 45.00, 42.00)
GRANDS CRUS
CHABLIS Preuses 75cl 79.50 (79.50, 78.00, 78.00, 75.00, 65.00)
CHABLIS Preuses 150cl — (—, 161.00, —)
CHABLIS Bougros Côtes de Bouquerots 75cl 84.00 (84.00, 79.00, 79.50, 79.00, 65.00)
CHABLIS Les Clos 75cl 105.00 (98.00, 94.00, 89.00, 89.00, 75.00)
CHABLIS Les Clos 150cl 225.00 (211.00, 193.00, —)

The first two grand crus holding (price) station – but not the Clos! Considering that 2020 at all the Chablis domaines is sold out, and that most of the (short-vintage) 2021s are already reserved, these prices seem to exhibit quite some restraint!
*The prices are ‘delivered’ but will attract another 7.7% Swiss purchase tax.

offer of the day – Christophe Perrot-Minot 2019…

By billn on March 23, 2022 #the market

2019 Perrot-MinotOnce more, just to give you that fuzzy and warm feeling that you could buy these – if you really wanted!

As usual, the prices are delivered in Switzerland – but here, include purchase tax. Note that these are special introductory prices – the price goes up at the end of the offer 🙂 In the brackets – 2018, then 2017 & 2016 prices and — indicates not offered:

VINS ROUGES
Bourgogne Gravières des Chaponnières 2019 75cl 52.65* (—) (*Swiss Francs)

Gevrey-Chambertin Justice des Seuvrées 2019 75cl 171.00 (117.00, 120.60, 94.50)
Morey Saint-Denis En la Rue de Vergy 2019 75 cl 171.00 (—)
Nuits St-Georges 1er ‘Les Murgers des Cras’ 2019 75cl 171.00 (117.00, 120.60, 100.80)
Vosne-Romanée Ormes des Chalendins 2019 75cl 189.00 (135.00, 138.60, —)
Chambolle-Musigny Orveaux des Bussières 2019 75cl 220.50 (135.00, 138.60, —)

Vosne-Romanée Les Champs Perdrix Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 240.00 (170.00, 156.60, 128.70)
Morey Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 265.00 (171,00, 174.60, 163.80)
Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 395.00 (240.00, 249.00, 193.50)
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées 660.00 (—) 2019 75cl
Chambolle-Musigny Combe d’Orveau 1er Cru “Ultra” Vieilles-Vignes 2019 75cl 660.00 (375.00, 389.00, —)
Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru La Richemone “Ultra” Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 594.00 (337.50, 389.00, 385.00)

Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 679.50 (425.00, 444.00, 420.00)
Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 679.50 (382.50, 444.00, 420.00)
Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019 75cl 679.50 (382.50, 444.00, 420.00)

There are 3 more grand crus; Griotte, Bèze & Chambertin but all are ‘price on application.’ These increases are anyway as ‘punchy’ as I have seen from anyone and given that Christophe puts his wines on the market later than most others, then he’s benefitting from the price increases of the 2020s (and then some!) already with his 2019s!

*As noted, these are delivered prices, but this email offer is discounted – whatever is sold from their normal catalogue is at a higher price – typically about 10% more…

Well-done to the Saint Vincent…

By billn on March 21, 2022 #events#the market

After 4 years of preparation, multiple adaptations for health requirements, and despite the economic and geopolitical context, the collective effort of organisers from Blagny, Corpeau & Puligny-Montrachet delivered a great 78th Saint-Vincent Tournante. Given the later than intended start, it also seems that these guests enjoyed better weather than anyone can remember. The organisers have announced that they had welcomed around 50,000 visitors, including 17,000 tasters. Bravo!

As announced by the Grand Master of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin: ‘See you for the 79th Saint-Vincent Tournate in 2023 in Couchey!
