Premier Cru Red Releases: Burgundy En Primeur 2019

#Lavignecontinue…

It is with great pleasure that we offer our first tranche of 1er Crus from Burgundy, beginning with the superlative reds.

As our Master Sommelier Nicolas Clerc wrote in his vintage report here, the singularity and precision of the 2019 reds is genuinely striking. You can buy the red wines across appellations and price points with absolute confidence, such is the outstanding quality.

In 2019, the singularity of vineyard and terroir shines through – and what better way to experience this typicity than through the fascinating and utterly delicious complexities of Burgundy’s 1er Cru vineyards?

We heard on a number of occasions reference to the 1989 vintage, a year of exceptional reds defined by balance and approachability in youth, but with all the concentration of fruit to reward time in the cellar.

Of course, if you wish to discuss any wine in particular, or would like further guidance, then please do not hesitate to contact the Private Client Team. We look forward to hearing from you!

Stay tuned for the second tranche of white burgundy releases on Friday 8th January!

This sublime wine comes from a tiny parcel next to La Tâche. Neal Martin: "[It] has a touch more intensity on the nose, while the fruit is a little darker: bilberry and blackberry, plus touches of violet petals... Plenty of freshness here, and then the structure synonymous with Malconsorts kicks in on the finish. Superb."

A beautiful wine. Clos des Issarts is a tiny 0.5-hectare Faiveley monopole, just next to Rousseau's Clos de Ruchottes. The 2019 offers up sensual notes of stawberries, raspberries, cherries and intense floral notes. Great depth and length, this will reward patience.

From Chambolle's limestone terroir, this is a very perfumed Charmes. Jancis Robinson MW writes: "Light, sweet, well-composed nose and very sweet fruit. Finely etched on the palate… confidently done!"

Number of cases

From 0.65 ha, Les Aigros is open, fragrant, and very harmonious. Neal Martin writes: "a perfumed, floral bouquet, the judicous 15% new oak allows the fruit to flourish. The palate is very well balanced with blackberry and raspberry laced with white pepper, the mineralité surfacing towards the almost Pommard-like finish."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £350

Number of cases

This comes from Lafarge's oldest vines - 98 years. Ethereal, tense, stunning. Neal Martin writes: "a beautiful, very pure kirsch and crushed strawberry nose laced with orange pith... More saline than Lafarge’s other cuvées it is very grippy on the finish. Excellent."
