Vines for Sale

château de gevrey-chambertin – sold!

I was travelling the last days so couldn’t post the news, hence, Keith beat me to it. But the news is that the small domaine which includes Gevrey-Chambertin’s most iconic building is now sold. Whilst that (surely) must auger for some eventual improvement in the quality of the wines, there is local angst that the […]

a new owner of the nsg clos des grandes vignes…

Part of the de Montille disposals to fund the purchase of the Château de Puligny; unofficially, we’ve known about the new owner for the last couple of weeks, but as the words finally trip from his own mouth, I think I’m safe enough to broadcast it 😉 Based on the numbers in the SAFER website, […]

wanna buy some vines? (again!)

€280,000 sounds a snip for a 0.76 ha slice of villages Pommard – doesn’t it? Such a shame the current owner retains full use AFTER you pay him the 280k (plus fees…!) HERE

do you want to own vines in the côte d’or?

do you want to own vines in the côte d’or?

Well do you? That’s a hard question to answer in the current market. I provide for you here a window to a relatively ‘cheap’ entry into the world of premier cru pinot noir (Chambolle-Musigny would cost you 5x the amount), but the financial transaction and subsequent model will make sense to relatively few of you […]

adieu clos frantin…

adieu clos frantin…

Well to be specific the Clos Frantin, not Domaine du Clos Frantin. I was chatting with a sommelier/importer from New York who was to visit Domaine d’Eugenie, and he mentioned that they were changing the name of the Clos Frantin to Clos Eugenie. I was a bit sceptical because you don’t easily change vineyard names […]

alex gambal buys 5 hectares – or does he…

Edit/Note: I discussed this with Alex and apparently this does not reflect his actual position, but he also doesn’t want to comment further until everything is ironed out. Will let you know when it is. Thumbs up for Clive – still first with the news: Philippe Brenot of Santenay has sold his 5 hectare estate […]

I like champeaux, but…

€175,000 sounds quite a lot for only 0.272 hectares – even if they are close to 50 year-old Gevrey 1er cru vines… Of-course you may be more interested in the Marsannay – then you’d be able to make rosé!

vines for sale in pommard

There you go a ‘snäpchen’ – nicely sited ‘name’ vines overlooking the village of Pommard. Okay, not entirely cheap at €186,000, but you get almost 0.3 hectares – who would complain? I do, however, note that said vines are available only after the 2015 harvest, I didn’t know that you could also buy vines en-primeur…!

beaune 1er les cents vignes for sale

beaune 1er les cents vignes for sale

For sure it’s cheaper than the previous Puligny, but is it me – or does €75,000 sound rather a lot for 0.4 of an acre? Anyway: 3,94 ouvrées plantées en cépage Pinot Noir Age de la vigne : environ 40 ans Situation : Belle exposition sud-est Vigne présentant un bel état général Good luck with […]
