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.

The 2018 Chablis Les Pargues is a very pretty, exotic wine. Sweet floral notes, passion fruit, mint and lemon confit give the 2018 a decidedly exotic flair to play off its airy, lifted personality. Apricot, mint and light tropical notes add character to...

Domaine Daniel Dampt 2019 Chablis 750ml

$40.78

In contrast to the nose of the Petit Chablis, this immediately makes clear that the aromas could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its notes of citrus, green apple and oyster shell. There is both excellent freshness and energy to the delicious and...

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2018 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 du Chalet Pouilly 2020 Saint Veran 750ml

$33.82

A softly textured, ripe wine, this is immediately attractive. Full of bright acidity as well as richness, the wine has a slight yeasty character as well as great, open fruitiness. Drink now. Score: 87 points -- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 2019

Domaine Tollot Beaut 2018 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...
