A magnificent trio of fine wines designed to delight even the most demanding of connoisseurs:
2012 Hautes Cotes de Beaune, Domaines Lechauve
Bright, cherry red. Whole red berry fruits on the nose, raspberry, cherry. Clean, crisp, ripe fruit on the palate, lovely fine tannins, no harsh edges at all. Good acidity and balance and medium long finish. Proper Burgundy, beautifully crafted and a bit of a steal.
2013 Petit Chablis, Jean Durup
Jean Durup originally built up his domaine largely by acquiring and re-planting land that was abandoned after WWII, a man of foresight. The new generation in charge, led by Jean-Paul Durup together with his cousin, Frederic Guegin. The domaine makes traditional, 'terroir wines'; very pure showing steely minerality without any use of oak. All his wines undergo malolactic fermentations, and are impeccably made in modern cellars at Maligny.
This is a very good Petit Chablis which is hardly surprising as his 'Petit' vineyards are right next to his Premieur Cru Vineyards. Often written off as an appellation, Petit Chablis is ideal for early drinking and offers superb value for money
Pale-straw colored with greenish glints, lean and racy, with delicate flavours of lemon, apple, pineapple and flint.
Domaine Alaine Chavy Chardonnay Blanc
Classy white burgundy; very in style and elegance. Alain Chavy in Puligny-Montrachet crafts wines to do this great village proud.
