Burgundy Tasting Trip: Day 6

November 7th 2017

Aire des Clos

We kicked off proceedings with an excellent dinner on Sunday night, starting with a sublime bottle of 2005 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre by François Raveneau – the wine, while being on the fuller, richer side for Chablis, was magnificent! Its flavour lasted long into the night and it goes down as one of my all time favourite white wines. If this doesn’t deserve to be Grand Cru, then I don’t know what does.

June 1st 2017


Bought by the Wertheimer brothers of the fashion house, Chanel, in 1994, Rauzan Segla has undergone a transformation, emerging as one of the great names of Bordeaux. At Goedhuis & Co we love Rauzan Segla and their 2016 is one of the stars of the Margaux appellation. Nicolas Audebert has produced an excellent follow-up to the brilliant 2015.

Ch Grand Puy Lacoste 2016 | £735 per 12 IB | “What a brilliant wine” 95-97 points, Neal Martin

June 1st 2017


The 5th growth Pauillac, Ch. Grand Puy Lacoste, has produced one of the most unforgettable wines of 2016. This is a wine of incredible finesse and poise. The ultra fine, silky nature of the tannins combined with the vintage’s hallmark freshness have combined to produce one of the most seductive GPLs that we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting at this early stage.

Reserve de la Comtesse 2016 | £355 per 12 IB | “Don’t miss it.” 90-93, AG

May 30th 2017


There’s been a lot of talk about the 2016 Pichon Lalande being a contender for wine of the vintage, but its second wine was also a real treat this year. The Reserve de la Comtesse (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot & 4% Cabernet Franc) really has a lot of the grace and flair of the Grand Vin – a wonderful balance between elegance and finesse with the powerful Pauillac drive underneath.
