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!

Number of cases

Elegant and distinguished. Neal Martin writes: "Lovely lilting red cherry and touches of blue fruit here, maybe just a slither of blood orange… 'Tis a little more compact than other cuvées at the moment but it will surely blossom in bottle." Very graceful.
Case 1 x 150cl
Price £180
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Only released in magnums. The 2019 Pitures is delicate and restrained, with a floral nose. The palate is dense with a notably tannic structure, at once concentrated and freshness. Very good but needs time.
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £520
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Spicy, floral and with notes of wild herbs. Subtle tannins, with good tension and precision. Neal Martin says: "medium-bodied with a slightly honeyed texture, good depth with a little chewiness towards the finish. A burly Pommard."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £550
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Stunning, with a notably flinty, minerally nose. Neal Martin writes: "Transparent and wonderfully focused, you can just inhale the pungent scents of its limestone soil. The palate is well balanced with impressive acidity and energy... Very classic in style, you would never believe that this Caillerets was born in such a warm growing season."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £710
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Energetic and complex - there's so much going on here. Destemmed by hand. Neal Martin says: "It has a deep, transparent, delineated bouquet with mineral-rich red fruit, rose petals and potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry, a light marine influence here with a hint of seaweed towards the persistent finish. Excellent."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £570
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

From 1 ha of clay and limestone. This is generous and virile. Neal Martin writes: "a pretty and exceptionally pure bouquet with red cherries, kirsch, cranberry and crushed limestone aromas that soar from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, a little chewiness towards the finish, dense with a grippy, broody finish."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £200
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Pure and precise. Neal Martin writes: "tightly wound on the nose, offering intense blackberry, briary and light sea spray scents, plus perhaps just a touch of shucked oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £735
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

From just 0.3 ha of 60 year old vines on clay-limestone soils, Les Suchots is mineral, precise and restrained. The nose is very pretty - sweet and scented. The palate is fresh and grippy. Excellent.
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £220
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

A beautifully defined Volany. With a potential 94 Points, Neal Martin writes: "it has a broody bouquet that demands more coaxing than its peers. It gradually becomes more floral. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit laced with graphite, nicely focused with a surfeit of freshness towards the marine-tinged finish. Very good potential - excellent."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £242
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Firm and grippy. Neal Martin says: "predominantly red berry fruit laced with rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, juicier than the aromatics augur." A most impressive Caillerets and especially for this price.
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £230
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Another very impressive offering from Rebourgeon. With a potential 94 Points, Neal Martin writes: "vibrant raspberry, wild strawberry and crushed rock aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. This has a fine bead of acidity, one of the domaine’s fleshier contributions to the vintage... Very fine."
Case 6 x 75cl
Price £300
ADD TO LIST

Number of cases

Rich and generous, this needs time to find its balance. Neal Martin: "a well defined bouquet with a mixture of red/black fruit, a touch of pressed iris and violet infusing the black fruit…. A powerful Pommard, this has great volume and persistence but it will require cellaring."
