offer of the day – groffier & arlot 2015

I thought I’d add a little Chablis Les Clos in today’s late afternoon sunshine to help ease these prices through 🙂

Captioned: “And wasn’t last weeks 2014 Clos de Tart cheap!

Domaine Robert Groffier

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015 75cl 38.00 (Swiss Francs*)
Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées 2015 75cl 79.00
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Hauts Doix 2015 75cl 146.00
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 2015 75cl 158.00
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses 2015 75cl 349.00
Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2015 75cl 349.00
Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2015 75cl 378.00

Domaine de l’Arlot

Nuits-Saint-Georges Mont des Oiseaux 1er Cru 2015 75cl 59.00
Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de l’Arlot 1er Cru 2015 75cl 79.00
Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos Forêts St-Georges 1er Cru 2015 75cl 79.00
Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru 2015 75cl 109.00
Romanée Saint Vivant Grand Cru 2015 75cl 445.00

This really IS 2015 for you, and will it all sell? Well probably the most expensive will sell, but I have my doubts about the full ranges. Clearly the end for the traditional enthusiasts’ RSVs and even Amoureuses seems to be at hand, but if I may offer just one piece of advice – 38 swiss franc bourgognes? Just say no!

*Note that 8% sales tax is also due, but delivery cost is included…

    Nosebleed heights of a crazy market.

    Burgundy prices are getting out of hand as is USA in which vineyard designate Pinot noir has a price
    of $50+/bottle and they are nothing more than fruit bombs and even more if they are reviewed by
    prominent reviewers!

    Any thoughts about Leroy Bourgogne at $45.

  4. Gilberto

    My guess is that at the lower end of the range is where the local retailers are having their higher (relative) margins. So that the 38 francs for a Bourgogne is mostly the retailer’s responsibility.
    Good advice, Bill!

    I have said it many times and I’ll say it one more time: with these crazy prices, why don’t you guys go and have a look in the Côte Chalonnaise. You’ll find plenty of nice red Bourgogne level wine at € 8 – € 10 a bottle – I rest my case. And then, when you have almost filled your car boot, buy some village wine at around € 12 – € 18. Need I say more?

    I have to support Roelof on his statement above. There is no way that Groffier’s 2015 Bourgogne at CHF38 is going to give you as much drinking pleasure as a 2015 1er cru Givry or Mercurey available for a lot less.

  7. Gilberto

    Where should one start? With which producers?

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