Two Greatly Discounted White Burgundies

2015 Deux Roches Pouilly Fuisse Les Crays & 2015 Cristophe Cordier Macon Vieilles Vignes
May 26, 2018

 

           We just brought in two succulent wines from Southern Burgundy at great discounted prices. Limited quantities.

 

2015 Cristophe Cordier Macon Vieilles Vignes

 

Cristophe Cordier makes some very fine wines at his family's Domaine Cordier estate. Sometimes he comes across grapes from other growers too good to turn down. Hence this Macon Vieilles Vignes; the grapes come from 50 year old vineyards in the Macon and Charnay appellations, and are the product of natural fermentation, lees aging, and time spent in wooden foudres, which give a supple mouthfeel without any woody flavors.

Decanter described this wine as "An elegant Macon dominated by flowers and ripe apple. The palate is ripe and concentrated but retains good focus and precision."

I agreed, and would add “round” and “mouthfilling,” with classic Macon apple and pear. It comes from 50 year old vines. Eight cases only.

2015 Cristophe Cordier Macon Vieilles Vignes Very Good Plus was 28.99 , now

17.99; Mixed Case, 16.19; Case, 15.29

 

2015 Deux Roches Pouilly Fuisse Les Crays

 

Les Crays

Les Crays is a specially favored Pouilly Fuisse vineyard, in Vergisson at the foot of a cliff that shields it from the cold north windsIt is one of the favored Pouilly vineyards slated to be promoted to premier cru later this year. Christian Collovray and Jean-Luc Terrier jointly own a piece of this vineyard in their Domaine des Deux Roches.

I loved their 2015 Deux Roches Pouilly Fuisse Les Cray when I tasted it last year at 40. At 29.99, (25.49 by the case) it is a value not to be missed. Six cases only at this price.

2015 Deux Roches Pouilly Fuisse Les Crays; Aroma: heady dense, fullish, clean & pretty, Nice density, firm, juicy, very nice balance; Mouth: clean, nicely juicy, finely delineated, and prettily lifted acidity, layered pear and citrus, long; Very Good - Excellent Was $40 now 29.99; Mixed Case, 26.99; Case, 25.49

Special six bottles each 238.69 (19.89)
