Burgundy

romanee-conti.jpg

Burgundy is home to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, and, for purists, the greatest wines those varieties can produce. This status is largely due to the work of monks from the Benedictine and Cistercian orders, who during the Middle Ages acquired large amounts of vineyard land and began to compare the wines produced from different areas and plots. Thus was born the dizzyingly complex Burgundian system of wine classification, with its hundreds of named vineyards (or climats) and hierarchy of vineyard quality. The Grand Cru vineyards stand at the apex, then come the Premiere Cru, the Villages, and finally the regional Bourgogne. We here at Marquis Wine Cellars love our Burgundy, and we are please to offer you wines from several top producers available nowhere else in B.C.

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2017 Chorey-les-Beaune 750ml

$65.13

A more elegant if similar nose offers up just a bit more complexity that is also the case for the equally succulent and rich medium weight flavors that also flash a hint of bitter cherry on the slightly firmer finish. This too would make a nice choice...

Domaine Brocard 2019 Ste. Claire Chablis 750ml

$45.13

The slightest touch of flinty reduction still plays around lemony brightness on the nose of this wine. The palate stays on a straight and narrow but concentrated path, focused on lemon freshness but rounded out with charming, riper notes of pear. This...

Domaine Bachelet 2018 Cotes de Nuits Villages 750ml

$99.91

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2017 Aloxe-Corton 750ml

$86.86

Once again there is plenty of spice influence to the pretty red and blue pinot fruit and forest floor-suffused nose. The medium weight flavors are not nearly as concentrated but I like the depth and balance of the balanced finale. Good stuff for its...

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2017 Bourgogne Rouge 750ml

$54.69

An appealingly fresh nose speaks of a panoply of red berry and earth scents where the latter is picked up by the succulent, even opulent, middle weight flavors that flash a hint of bitter cherry on the moderately firm finish. This is really quite good...
