22nd November, 2013

Shipment Due: Early December, 2013


Foreword by Ross Duke Well, here we go again with our Burgundy offer for the 2011 vintage. Unfortunately this year was badly affected by severe weather conditions which resulted in very low yields throughout the entire Cote d’Or. Unfortunately, 2012 was even worse and the recent thunderstorms and floods in the region will result in 2013 being a small harvest as well. The northern villages from Aloxe-Corton to Marsannay were not as badly affected as were the vineyards of Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-les-Beaune, Beaune, Pommard, Volany and Mersault. The losses there were between 60% to 100%. Sadly it has been predicted that there will be several vineyards that will be forced to sell which is just so sad. When one adds the 2010 and 2009 vintages Burgundy has had five years of below normal production. This, no doubt, has placed a severe financial burden upon all Domaine’s. When one adds the excessive taxes imposed by the president Francois Hollande then it was a very sorry and sad Burgundy that I visited this year. Many growers would be happy to sell their properties and even leave France. I cannot remember a more sombre and depressed state in France since I arrived on my first visit in 1976. There were so many houses for sale in many villages and towns that was quite depressing. Also the traffic on the roads was so light as people were just not moving around France. Restaurants were advertising big discounts for both lunch and dinner and Hotels were empty as well. A lot of vignerons were predicting riots in Paris before the end of the year such is the dis-satisfaction with Hollande and his government. Add the floods throughout Burgundy and the people have even more reason to be depressed. On a positive note the 2011 vintage was excellent as is the 2012 and on recent advice the 2013 looks very good as well. But all vintages are very low in quantity. Be quick with this offer as stocks are very low and prices have increased a bit with small price rises from the growers combined with a significant drop in the value of the Australian dollar against the Euro. I am sorry for this sad note but this is the real situation in France at the moment which we hope will turn around in the coming months and 2014. If Burgundy ever needs support now is the time!! We will be releasing some exciting offers via email and on the web leading up to Christmas. The offers will feature Champagne plus some other little morsels to captivate you all. If you are not on our email list, subscribe on our website now – we will not disappoint. As this is last catalogue of the year, Merry Christmas to you all and a safe New Year!! From me and Bev, Sarah, Eve, Vic and David.

THE WEATHER Thanks to some unusual weather conditions – which is becoming the norm, given what happened in 2012 – the 2011 vintage is characterized by some delicious aromas and flavours. These are wines to be enjoyed relatively young although some wines will require longer maturation. The weather for the 2011 vintage began spectacularly with a particularly warm and early spring, before giving way to a cool and rainy summer with periodic heavy storms. As is often the case, a sunny end to August ‘a fait le mout’ or ‘made the juice’, as they say. For the third time in a decade, the harvest began in the last 10 days of August, with some very tricky logistics. Each plot had to be harvested as it reached perfect maturity, and the sunshine in early September and low rainfall meant patience was required. The grapes had to be painstakingly sorted but the high discard resulted in fruity, silky reds and whites that were bursting with energy.

THE MARKET The demand for Fine Burgundy continues to grow and grow despite the downturn in the European economy. Furthermore, with the last few vintages being significantly down on volume and extremely small crop in 2012 allocations have been the norm to satisfy demand and spread what wine there is to sell.

PRICES Prices have increased owing to the low volumes of stock by around 15%-20%. With the drop in the Australian dollar this has resulted in higher prices for the 2011 vintage.

OUR SELECTIONS We have an excellent and broad range of Burgundies for you to choose from BOURGOGNE (White & Red) – 4 VILLAGE – 13 PREMIER CRU – 25 GRAND CRU - 8

CONCLUSION Cote de Beaune: Small yields resulting from the capricious spring weather meant the harvesting could wait until the grapes were perfectly ripe. With a more clement month in September and some strict sorting, the winemakers were graced with top quality grapes. Overall, the wines are very aromatic, dominated by notes of both ripe and dried fruits. In the mouth, they are lively with perfect structure and offer breadth with consistency. After a few months in the bottle, they will quickly soften up to reach a perfect balance. They also offer very good keeping potential. Cote de Nuits: The Cote de Nuits grapes were harvested in tip-top condition. Despite the dismal weather earlier in the summer, the grapes were ripe by the beginning of September. Although there was a lot of discard from the harvest, the resulting wines were elegant and silky with wonderful concentration. Complex and full bodied, the 2011 wines of the Cote de Nuits offer good keeping potential, but as with the 2007 vintage, they are also accessible in their youth, and are generous and appealing.

DOMAINE ROBERT-DENOGENT Pouilly-Fuisse 6 hectares | Founded 1990

What an impressive 6 hectare Domaine this is. They previously sold off their grapes to the local co-operative for several generations. All of their wines come off very old vines exceeding 100 years of age. Consequently, the depth of fruit coupled with fine balance puts their Chardonnay in a special class of their own. Fuisse quality is very high and one would not come across average wine when visiting this lovely Macon village. However, in my opinion Denogent is the best address in town. Now you be the judge. Hurry stock is small!

Pouilly-Fuisse 2011 ‘Les Carrons’ Striking green/gold colour. Lovely lean, limey and minerally palate of great length. Super balance and long after-taste. Needs time in the bottle to show its class.’ $63.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2382 (Landed $72.45)

Pouilly-Fuisse 2011 ‘Cuvée Claude Denogent’ ‘Deeper green colour. This is even more minerally with lime, lemon and a little asparagus edge. Good acidity and great, great length. A class act indeed! Ninety year old vines added extra fruit weight and length and a little new oak at 15% (low toast) gave the wine just a little more complexity.’ $53.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2383 (Landed $60.95)

Wine improves with age, the older I get the better I like it! 3

DOMAINE JEAN-CLAUDE BACHELET Saint-Aubin 10 Hectares | Founded 1648 I always visit Domaine Bachelet with excitement as their wines get even better each time I taste at the Domaine. This trip was no different; in fact it was just outstanding. When Domaines have such a broad selection of white and red Burgundies from so many different vineyards and Crus it is rare that both styles are of equal quality. Generally it is either the reds or the whites which are superior BUT here at Bachelet both are equals. This is the most exciting Domaine in the whole of Burgundy and if you have not experienced their stunning wines then grab this opportunity with their marvellous 2011 vintage wines. A word of warning as all wines are limited in stock so be real quick to avoid disappointment. Bravo Jean Claude, Jean-Baptiste and Benoit an outstanding outcome!!

DOMAINE MARQUIS D’ANGERVILLE Volnay 13.47 Hectares | Founded 1804 A beautiful vintage is 2011 at this famous address. Guillaume and Francoise Duvier are delighted with the overall quality of this vintage and regard it as one of their very best over the last three or more decades. My tasting experience could only concur. They exude such elegance, style and beautiful, long length of flavour and acute balance. Unfortunately both Volnay and Pommard experienced poorer weather conditions than the entire Cote d’Or. There is an individual micro climate that exists in these two villages which inflicted an even poorer result in 2012 and worse was to come in 2013. The quantity produced in 2012 was miniscule and as I wandered around their cellars they were very bare with very few full barrels to talk of. I understand that 2013 is worse. It is thought that there may be several Domaines that will not survive owing to the failure of 2010, 2011, 2012 and finally 2013. I personally feel very sad about this unprecedented outcome. As a result we will have to allocate all of our 2011 D’Angerville wines – sadly!! Bourgogne Rouge 2011 ‘Very good deep colour suggesting very ripe and luscious. On the palate that’s exactly what transpires. Excellent style for such a basic wine.’ $43.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2399 (Landed $49.45) Volnay 2011 Village ‘The colour is a cross between Caillerets and Champagne – medium? Immediate fruit impact and full and fatter than the Premiers Cru. Excellent structure, ripe and round. Lots of red berry fruit flavour. My goodness this is impressive!’ $72.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2400 (Landed $82.80) Volnay 2011 Clos Des Angles 1er Cru ‘Deep garnet colour with an immediate sweet fruit approach with soft tannin and sufficient acidity. Stylish!’ $96.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2401 (Landed $110.40)

Volnay 2011 ‘Caillerets’ 1er Cru ‘Very deep, ruby colour and quite aromatic on the nose. This is ripe, powerful with excellent length. A beauty!’ $124.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2403 (Landed $142.60) Volnay 2011 ‘Taillepieds’ 1er Cru ‘Similar depth of colour with ‘Caillerets’ 20% new oak combines well with the rich and ripe fruit followed by mild tannin and crisp acidity. Complex Burgundy of top quality.’ $124.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2404 (Landed $142.60)

Volnay 2011 ‘Champans’ 1er Cru ‘Lighter colour compared to the last two Premiers Cru. This is a very elegant wine with rounder and softer tannins and beautifully balanced. Jacques would love this wine indeed!’ $124.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2405 (Landed $142.60) Volnay 2011 ‘Champans’ 1er Cru MAGNUMS $245.00/ Magnum pre-arrival Code: 2435 (Landed $281.75)

DOMAINE THIBAULT LIGER-BELAIR Nuits-St-Georges 6.75 Hectares | Founded 1720 Thibault continues to fine tune all of his wines to such a fanatical level. Each year there is another project in the cellar/vineyard and I expect it will never stop as he cannot resist raising his wines to another level. I think this was one of my finest tastings with Thibault with several wines raised to another level of quality. The purity of fruit and complexity on the palate puts him in the elite levels of Domaines in the whole of the Cote d’Or. I simply cannot recommend his wines more highly and for those that met him on his recent visit to Australia will agree with my opinion. Bourgogne Rouge 2011 ‘Les Grands Chaillots’ ‘Deep, vibrant ruby-red colour. Plenty of tannin on the palate but quite closed. This will be a forceful Pinot of great length but will need time in the bottle to fill out the massive fruit character. Impressive and such value for money!’ $38.25/bt pre-arrival Code: 2407 (Landed $44.00) Haut Cotes De Nuits ‘Clos Du Prieure’ ‘A delightful vineyard that lies high up in the hills of the Cote de Nuits. Dense red colour and quite aromatic on the nose. The palate is rich, ripe and quite long with more cherry/raspberry fruit and round tannin on the finish. An impressive wine from this under-rated vineyard source.’ $42.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2408 (Landed $48.30) Nuits-Saint-Georges 2011 ‘La Charmotte’ ‘Mid-ruby colour with a slight floral nose. Excellent impact of ripe fruit with good length and fine balance. This vineyard is located on the VosneRomanee side of Nuits-St-Georges and lies on 30 centimetres of clay and limestone soil. Thibault used 20% whole clusters in the fermentation which imparted deeper colour and tannin. Excellent style.’ $84.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2409 (Landed $96.60) Vosne-Romanee 2011 ‘Aux Reas’ ‘Mid ruby colour again. This is one of my favourites as it is always soft and silky, complex and great length on the palate. There are more plums and blackberry fruit to the flavour. Terrific, as usual!’ LIMITED $107.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2410 (Landed $123.00) Gevrey-Chambertin 2011 ‘La Croix Des Champs’ ‘50% whole clusters used here and very much a ‘terroir’ wine coming off high levels of clay and silt in the soil structure. Complex wine with strong red berry fruit flavour with rounder tannins on the finish. Top quality wine here!’ $84.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2411 (Landed $96.60) 9

Nuits-Saint-Georges 2011 ‘Les Saint Georges’ 1er Cru ‘Deep ruby red colour. Somewhat closed on the palate with firmer tannins but great length. This will need time in the bottle up to 10 years plus but will be an outstanding wine. This is Thibaults favourite wine and currently applied for Grand Cru status.’ $148.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2412 (Landed $170.20) Chambolle-Musigny 2011 ‘Les Gruenchers’ 1er Cru ‘The soft clay soil structure ensures this wine to be feminine in structure. Bright ruby colour leads into a ripe and elegant style of Pinot with strong , earthy, strawberry fruit. Beautiful wine and oh so typical of ChambolleMusigny.’ LIMITED $135.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2413 (Landed $155.25) Corton 2011 ‘Les Renardes’ Grand Cru ‘Intense ruby colour but the nose is closed. Wild strawberry fruit with soft tannins but not too dry more rounder. Needs time but top quality Burgundy and will be outstanding.’ LIMITED $145.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2414 (Landed $166.75) Clos Vougeot 2011 Grand Cru ‘Concentrate palate with a delightful mocca, coffee edge. A big style of Pinot that lingers on and on after swallowed. Impressive and captivating.’ LIMITED $210.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2415 (Landed $241.50)

Thibault Liger-Belair Charmes Chambertin 2011 Grand Cru ‘Now this is quite complex as Thibault has used a range of old and young barrels. In fact the old boys come from trees that are 200 years old. Also, the range of barrels come from different regions of France as well. There is only a light toast to the wine to allow the fruit to express itself. This is quite a complex wine and nothing like any ‘Charmes’ I have tasted in the past. A stunning result from start to finish. Incredible!’ LIMITED $210.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2416 (Landed $241.50) Richebourg 2011 Grand Cru ‘Simply outstanding. Richebourg is unsurpassed as the finest Grand Cru in Burgundy.’ $431.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2417 VERY LIMITED (Landed $495.65) 10

CLOS DES LAMBRAYS Morey St Denis 12.44 Hectares | Founded 1365 An incredible result here by Thierry Brouin at Clos des Lambrays. Sadly the quantity produced was miniscule so we will have to allocate both of these wines. I well remember tasting their 1918 and 1919 vintages which struck a chord with me when tasting out of barrel. The village wine was stunning to start with but when we tasted the Grand Cru it was a precious experience indeed. This is why Burgundy is hard to compare with any other wine in the entire world. Well done Thierry and when you retire I expect this wine will be one of the wines you will remember forever!’ Morey St Denis 2011 Villages Glittering scarlet red colour. Lots of red berry fruits on the nose with strawberry dominating. The palate is rich and luscious and imposing length and silky texture. Well above village status but sadly very little quantity.’ VERY LIMITED $83.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2418 (Landed $95.45)

Clos Des Lambrays 2011 Grand Cru – 750ml Bottles ‘Deeper and more intense colour with more purple than ruby. Such intensity on the palate which lingers on and on after swallowing this outstanding wine. I cannot remember tasting this Grand Cru out of barrel that showed such impact on the palate. This is a classic from this famous Domaine. A knockout of great proportions.’ LIMITED $233.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2419 (Landed $268.00) Clos Des Lambrays 2011 Grand Cru – 375 ml Bottles $120.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2420 (Landed $138.00) Clos Des Lambrays 2011 Grand Cru – MAGNUMS $467.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2421 (Landed $537.00)

DOMAINE PIERRE AMIOT ET FILS Morey St Denis 8.5 Hectares |Founded 1850 Jean-Louis and Didier Amiot are building a great reputation for outstanding Burgundy and deservedly so as I think their wines are sublime. The impeccable detail within their vines requires long hours of hard work but it is now paying off as their reputation is growing all over the world. We are only offering two wines with this offer and will propose the balance of the range next year. But all wines are limited to 2011 figures.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 2011 ‘Les Combottes’ ‘Nestled between so many Grand Crus so why is ‘Les Combottes’ a Premier Cru? Well try this winw and join in on the discussion. This is certainly Grand Cru quality with a sparkling deep red colour to begin with then the raspberry/cherry fruit takes over. Sublime length and fine balance that lingers and lingers. Outstanding!’ $91.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2422 (Landed $104.65)

Clos De La Roche 2011 Grand Cru ‘Very deep colour which confirms ripe and powerful fruit. The nose is closed as is the palate. Check out the structure of the wine which is persistent and very long. This just needs time and will emerge as an outstanding red Burgundy from one of the best Grand Cru sites on the Cote d’Or.’ $135.00/bt pre-arrival Code: 2423 (Landed $155.25)

Christopher Foskey It is with great sadness that we recently discovered that our old friend and great client Chris Foskey, Sydney passed away on 5th of December, 2012. Chris died peacefully in his sleep at the ripe age of 79. He was an avid golfer and such an enthusiastic wine lover and consumer. Chris was a valued customer of ours for over 30 years and loved to have a good chat before he placed his order. We will miss his calls but will always remember him. Our condolences go out to his wife Sue and extended family. Rest in peace our friend and we will raise a glass to your memory.

OUR HOUSE IN BURGUNDY Montceau-et-Écharnant Yes, we have a lovely, large house, in Burgundy perched high above Beaune in the beautiful village of Montceau-et-Écharnant. The house is located 10 minutes from Savigny-les-Beaune or Pommard. Nestled among the beautiful villages of Lusigny and Blingy-sur-Ouche. Our stone house dates back to 1824 and is very spacious. The home comes fully equipped - kitchen, lounge, dining room, terrace, cellar and laundry. The home will comfortably sleep up to 9 people with 3 separate rooms plus 2 bathrooms. Television, cable and stereo system to keep you entertained... There is even a webber B-B-Q! It's a lovely snoozy village with no more than 100 habitants.
