BURGUNDY-CÔTE DE NUITS

DOMAINE SYLVAIN PATAILLE, CÔTE DE NUITS, MARSANNAY

Sylvain Pataille begun his adventure with wine early on in life, while helping his grandfather tending to a small plot of vines, near their family home in Marsannay, in the northern end of the Côte de Nuits. In 1999 he started his own project, with only one hectare of vines. He now farms 15 hectares, mainly within AOC Marsannay and some AOC Bourgogne, near Chenove. Highly regarded as a winemaker, Sylvain could easily make wines in one of the more prominent Burgundian appellations. Instead, he proudly says: “Marsannay is enough for me. I know a lot about Gevrey-Chambertin, but this is my village”.

Sylvain’s great passion remains Aligoté Doré, and he prefers to work with old vines of low yielding Aligoté Doreée. Although (unusually for this part of Côte d’Or) Sylvain makes quite a few outstanding white wines, his Marsannay Rouge and Bourgogne Rouge are among the best value reds in Burgundy.

DOM ANTOINE LIENHARDT

DOMAINE ANTOINE LIENHARDT, COMBLANCHIEN

In 2011 Antoine Lienhardt took over 4.2 hectares of family vineyards that had been on long-term lease since his grandfather’s retirement in 1992. Antoine had previously cut his teeth working for four years at Domaine Amiot-Servelle in Chambolle-Musigny, with shorter stints in Chablis and in South Africa. Gifted with family vines and not encumbered by the pressures of tradition and heritage, Antoine set out to be the first in his family to make wine.

“At the heart of domaine’s holdings are three lieux-dits in Comblanchien planted in the 1960s by his grandfather. The main differences between the parcels are the rockier top soils in Les Essards and greater clay content of those in Les Plantes. As in the rest of Burgundy, small variations make for distinctive flavour profiles: Les Plantes Aux Bois is more generous, a touch broader and more lush; Les Essards - more classic in style, is nervier, taut and more pungently mineral and cool-toned. Both have lively acidity, energetic minerality and a compelling tension between the pure Pinot fruit and savoury earthiness. The “Emphase”, by contrast, is more refined, but is also endowed with a structure and minerality that is somewhat reminiscent of it’s more noble northerly neighbour (Nuit Saint Georges)! There is a drive and energy in these wines that command your attention immediately. These are delicious and terroir-specific Burgundies to grace the table. Bravo to Antoine Liendhardt” ... John McIlwain MW

In addition, Lienhardt makes some very impressive Gamay, Bourgogne Rouge, NSTG and Volnay 1er Cru ‘Santenots’. He is now experimenting with amphora (terracotta) and egg-shaped tanks both in concrete and ceramic. The resulting wines are, as you might guess, different, interesting and individual. Invariably Lienhardt will blend the results and the results are unfailingly impressive. Though 2021 is a comparatively light vintage (in terms of extract – due to growing conditions), the fruit in these wines is simply delicious.

DOM ROBERT CHEVILLON
ORGANIC.png
VIGNERON.png
DOMAINE ROBERT CHEVILLON, NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES

For most wine writers, critics, consumers, Domaine Chevillon is THE textbook reference for the appellation. The explanation is twofold. Chevillon frères make premier cru parcels of NSTG that are uniquely different. Vintage character never blurs typicity at this address. They are notably individual and Chevillon’s epitomise all that is “Chaignots” or “Pruliers”, or “Cailles” or “Vaucrains” etc.

The second explanation is the unequalled quality. While standards in general have vastly improved in Burgundy in the past 15 years, Bertrand and Denis unfailingly achieve the highest possible standards for their appellation. This is easy to say of course. The proof though is surely in the wines. Taste any wine in any of the past twenty odd vintages to get the gist. Not only do they age superbly, when mature they are exactly as tasted from barrel, though now with tertiary aromas and perhaps more wood floor flavours of game and earth, that in their youth is not yet revealed.

The domain covers an area of 13 hectares of vines, including eight 1er Crus of Nuits. Ninety per-cent of the domaine’s produce is exported – which averages 70,000 bottles per year – Bertrand Chevillon says that “there is no real secret, as the market is very simple – if your wines have a good quality then people come back!”.

ROBERT SIRUGE
VIGNERON.png
DOMAINE ROBERT SIRUGUE,  VOSNE-ROMANÉE

Based in Vosne-Romanée, Domaine Robert Sirugue is a family-run estate, medium in size and today boasts a reputation for very high quality. Today it is grandson Arnaud, a fifth generation Sirugue, that makes the wine. 

Alas, not just are our current stocks depleted, we are not likely to replenish our stocks from Sirugue for several months yet. Freezing temperatures during the early morning hours of April 6- 8 in 2021 brought severe frosts to Burgundy vineyards, damaging Chardonnay and Pinot Noir buds. Resulting losses at Domaine Sirugue were in the region of 70% and the outcome is that Vinostito’s next available vintage will be the 2022 vintage. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the 2022 vintage is of very high quality.

DOM ANNE GROS
BIO.png
VIGNERON.png
DOMAINE ANNE GROS, VOSNE-ROMANEE

Small holding of generic to grand cru wines that commands an international following. Gros is a perfectionist, producing wines which are aromatic, refined & seductive. There is a minerality here that reflects the soils & the tannins are invariably suede-like. The wines are hand-crafted & even the humble generic offerings of Hautes Cotes and Bourgogne Pinot Noir are quite special.

Anne Gros simply is one of the top winemakers in Burgundy today, which explains why her wines have inspired such a cult-like following. Importantly for us, Gros personifies the sort of winemaker with whom we have always sought to work: an artisan with a clear vision of her terroir and talents and the grace to be humble despite the weight of Burgundian tradition and family history.

“Anne Gros is a leading source for fine Burgundy and as such is regarded as one of Burgundy’s finest ambassadors. She achieves a quality and consistency that singles her out as one of the top five domaines in all of Burgundy. It is no wonder that Domaine Anne Gros is one of the most sought-after addresses in all of Burgundy. Small production; impeccable standards”. Clive Coates MW

DOM CHRISTIAN SERAFIN
ORGANIC.png
VIGNERON.png
DOMAINE CHRISTIAN SERAFIN, GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN

The reserved and considered son of a Polish immigrant Christian Sérafin holds a stunning suite of fabulous vineyards which produce intense and structured Côte de Nuits reds. The fruit concentration from low yields and a propensity to harvest late is such that the wines easily handle the oak regime, which integrate seamlessly after 3-5 years. The Sérafin wines have excellent structure, firmly supported by powerful tannin and acid levels, thus having the capacity to age superbly if cellared correctly. The vineyards are managed biologically with no regular application of systemic herbicides or pesticides (preferring to keep options open depending on climatic challenges etc). The vinification is both simple and natural with no artificial yeasts or enzymes, done in barrique. They are not racked until they are homogenized prior to bottling, nor are they fined or filtered.

Today the wines are made by Sérafin’s niece Frédérique and the domaine is run by his daughter Karine. The ladies have already stamped their imprimatur with a very tangible shift to producing refined wines. There is a definite reduction in extraction and delightful lighter touch in these very classy 2020’s. In fact, they are so well balanced that it is possible that they will drink young as well as old. Frédérique said she felt the 2020 vintage had the freshness and elegance of 2001, but with a bit more density. She has produced a lovely set of richly concentrated wines which perfectly combine the purity of the vintage, its bright vibrant fruit and sweet, compelling toasted flavours.

DOMAIN COMTE GEORGES DE VOGU
ORGANIC.png
DOMAINE COMTE GEORGES DE VOGUÉ, COTE DE NUITS (CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY)

Second only in prestige to Domaine de la Romanée Conti as the finest domaine in Burgundy. Standards here are incredibly exacting, making beautiful wines that can age a lifetime. These are highly prized wines and as such, generally sell out on release in March of each year. Next available vintage will be 2022, which will be available in the autumn of 2024.

The 2021 vintage is new wine maker Jean-Lupatelli’s first and it couldn’t have been more challenging one. Critics have marvelled at the outcome. Lupatelli was head-hunted by the domaine (after Francois Millet’s departure in April 2022) and the pursuit was clearly a ‘targeted’ one. The results are compelling.

The wines are invariably exceptional and they will age a lifetime. Though they are priced in the stratosphere, they somehow always find a home. Such is their esteem and reputation that customers will ‘push the boat out’ in order to have one, two or three bottles in their cellar. More than any other source, we cannot count the number of times a customer has contacted us to say that their vinous experience on opening a bottle of de Vogué was simply ‘like no other’.
