En Primeur | Grands Crus

As so many of Burgundy's Grands Crus are produced in miniscule quantities, it can seem impossible to get on to the allocation list. We are delighted to be able to offer this selection of Grands Crus, still available in limited quantities but not allocated. A rare chance to buy wines from some of the most sought after vineyards in the world.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    Vincent categorises the vines for this fine cuvée into three groups: his younger vines under 30 years which give 30% of the cuvée, the next 30% from 30 year old vines, and the final 40% from aged vines between 40- 60 years. A very impressive wine with aromas of quince and melon. Full, powerful and concentrated, but not to excess. A touch of toffee and fudge on the finish, wonderfully appealing and very long.

    The 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing very well, mingling notes of crisp orchard fruit and orange oil with hints of nutmeg, toasted almonds, white flowers and clear honey. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's muscular and multidimensional, with tangy acids and a taut, chiseled profile that's built for the cellar.

    If you want the technobabble, the vines here are now ‘tressed’ rather than hedged and vinification takes place in a couple of cement eggs as well as barrel. The vines are mostly in En Charlemagne with a small part in Le Charlemagne. Attractive lemon and lime colour, lovely stylish and very classic bouquet. Terrific tension behind, no feeling of heat, a crystalline minerality and exceptional persistence. Very fine indeed. 4 stars

    Lots of red cherry and pomegranate. This is a lovely polished Corton, with sophisticated rounded tannins. It has a feeling of weight, but also exuberant richness, great length and masses of class.

    The 2019 Corton Grand Cru has also turned out very well, exhibiting aromas of red berries, spices, forest floor and orange oil. Full-bodied, layered and perfumed, with fine concentration, powdery tannins and lively acids, it's elegantly muscular in profile, concluding with a long, sapid finish. As I've written before, this comes from Les Meix and Les Chaumes, lieux-dits below Pougets and just above the village of Aloxe-Corton.

    Nice and expressive with deep, purple fruit notes and a lovely glossy sheen, this is a very successful wine for Rapet and it’s nice to see that this ripe fruit retains complete control and balance with the oak and tannin elements here.

    From Chaumes et Voierosse and Combes, a well protected site. Flinty soil with nothing , but stones. Rich dense bouquet, much more depth here and a slightly fresher fruit. Deep red fruit, with good tannins too and attractive acidity, this is the keeper of the two Cortons. And rather impressive. 4 stars

    The 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru comes from Faiveley’s 1.27-hectare parcel. It has a floral nose with potpourri and light lavender aromas that partially occlude the fruit expression. The palate is lithe on the entry with modest depth and quite tertiary in style, and a keen thread of acidity lends freshness on the finish. A little austere in style, it opens with aeration to offer a very minerally finish. Here, it put the Echézeaux 2019 in its place. Drink 2025 - 2045
