Wine Tasting - Saturday, February 15th 1-4pm

Your host is Winemaker/Owner Phillipe Leclerc. Vineyard owner Phillipe Leclerc is showing his wines today and the line of people that have come to meet him and taste his offerings has been nonstop. This is a great opprtunity to taste some truly world class wines, get a bottle signed and get an insiders view of what may be the worlds most reknowned wine producing region. He will be here until 4pm today. 

Bourgogne les Bon Batons 2010                          $24.99
Wood and reduction presently dominate the nose but there is fine vivacity and intensity to the solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess ripe tannins plus excellent complexity and persistence for a wine of this level. Well worth considering as this is a serious Bourgogne. Burghound, 88 pts

Gevrey Chambertin les Platieres 2010             $39.99
A gentle touch of wood sets off brooding and very somber aromas of cool yet ripe dark berry fruit and pungent Gevrey style earth. The medium-bodied flavors possess fine phenolic maturity along with excellent richness before culminating in a focused, balanced and serious finish that displays little rusticity. Burghound, 91 pts

Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux 2010           $69.99
A noticeable lashing of wood frames airy, cool and ripe aromas of plum, cassis and wet stone. There is excellent intensity to the stony, rich and well-delineated medium weight flavors that are shaped by dense but relatively fine tannins, all wrapped in a mouth coating finish that delivers impressive length on the well-balanced finale.  Burghound, 92 pts

Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetieres 2010        $79.99
Here the wood is noticeable but less conspicuous and does not dominate the cool and very stony dark berry fruit and pungent earth aromas. There is very fine volume to the stony and overtly muscular large-scaled flavors that are quite powerful but not rustic, all wrapped in an extract-rich finish that offers excellent length. Like the Combe Aux Moines, this is clearly built to age and will need 12 to 15 years of cellar time.  Burghound, 93 pts
