New Release | Château de Sours Rosé 2016

February 8th 2017

Sours-chateau

Goedhuis & Co have offered the rosé of Ch de Sours in the early spring for many years. Last year owner and friend of Goedhuis, Martin Krajewski, sold the property; it seemed like the end of an era. But we soon learned that Martin had stayed on as a consultant at the château, and we are pleased to begin the year’s rosé offerings once again with this cheerful, easy-drinking pink from Bordeaux. The 2016 is available in a range of formats, and large orders benefit from a discounted rate. The wine will be shipped shortly, and delivered in time for…

Joseph-Voillot-2

Pommard is one of the largest communes in the Côte d’Or, whilst neighbouring Volnay is one of the smallest.

January 26th 2017

A consistent message echoing through the trade and press is that in this brilliant vintage it’s not just the classified crus and most prestigious villages which have produced excellent quality, the communal wines of peripheral appellations like Marsannay have exceeded themselves.

January 12th 2017

IMG_2100

Etienne Givot and his son Hubert have been in London for the clutch of en primeur tastings that took place in a flurry of tube strikes, torrential rain, and Ban Bourguignons this week. We were delighted they could join us for lunch today. The 2015 campaign has been high energy, to say the least. Having held back our wines until Tuesday morning (following our small tasting on Monday), the sales team have been in a constant state of trade, only occasionally coming up for air to remark that, oh my God, so-an-so has sold out already! It has been a…
