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 Servin 2020 Chablis "Les Pargues" 750ml

More evident Chablis character is present on the nose of green fruit, mineral reduction, sea breeze and shellfish scents. There is markedly better density to the solidly powerful and very attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that conclude in a dry...

Bernard Defaix 2020 Chablis 750ml

$51.21

This is actually aromatically quite similar to the Petit Chablis with perhaps just a bit more freshness. The sleek and delicious medium-bodied flavors possess good if not special density while displaying fine length on the slightly drier finale. This too...

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2019 Aloxe-Corton 750ml

$86.86

A ripe but attractively fresh nose reveals appealingly layered aromas of red currant, cherry and newly turned earth. I very much like the caressing but punchy middle weight flavors that exhibit fine length on the moderately structured finale. This is a...

The 2019 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches wafts from the glass with aromas of musky peach, citrus fruit, white flowers and pear. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's bright but gourmand, concluding with a long, saline finish. Score: 90...

Maison Joseph Drouhin 2020 St. Veran 750ml

$47.74

The 2020 Saint-Véran has a charming, quite floral bouquet with peony and buttercup complementing the yellow plum and lemon zest. Utterly charming. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, maybe not as complex as the aromatic augur, though it...
