I love Burgundy, and I love it even more when it’s from the best vintage, best vineyard, best producer, and when I can offer it at 30% off for all my friends!
Philippe Gavignet’s wines are elegant, polish and pure style, very profound as Nuits Saint Georges are often known for more tannic wines. The reason being his selection of vineyards are some of the most expressive, VERY OLD VINE (up to 100 years old, planted back from 1920s!) terroir that only a conscientious winemaker such as Philippe can handle.
He’s a very honest, humble producer, down to earth and his wines still remains an insider’s secret, while “bigger” names in the village garner the attention and demand ever-higher prices) Yet no other producer even comes close to capturing the true character of this impeccable terroir as does Philippe Gavignet!!!
2016 Philippe Gavignet “Chaboeufs” Premier Cru, Nuits Saint Georges is a premier cru vineyard nestled into a cool, narrow valley. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented on indigenous yeasts, unfined and unfiltered. On the palate it is satisfying with tea leaves, black fruits, backing spices. Loads of raspberry, mineral and crushed black pepper aromas. Combine with the superb 2016 vintage, the wine is plush and elegant on the finish. DELICIOUS!!!
Let it open and decant for 30-45 minutes before drinking. While you wait, you can prepare a roast duck with sour cherries that would go amazingly with this bottle!
Now the best part, this is what excites me the most, when I can offer amazing wines at ridiculous price… Normally it goes for $110+ I’m offering it for $74.99 because I say F*ck it, let’s get as many great Burgundy into people’s tummy before the 25% French wine tariff really kicks in!
