Offers | Goedhuis Recommends: October 2020

Last month we were absolutely thrilled to be named Bordeaux specialist, En Primeur specialist and runner-up Burgundy specialist of the year by Decanter Magazine. To celebrate we’re highlighting the best of Burgundy and Bordeaux in our October recommendations.

We’ve picked three fabulous white Burgundies from our range that between them suit every occasion.

  • Mâcon Montbellet Mallory & Benjamin Talmard 2019 (£132 per 12 bottles, £154 per 12 halves, £284 per 6 magnums) Mallory and Benjamin Talmard make a crisp, juicy and pocket-friendly Mâcon Montbellet from well-sited old vines. At £11.00 a bottle, the 2019 is a delightful everyday drinker that’s bursting with fresh peach and citrus.

 

  • Montagny 1er Cru Vieux Château Jean-Marc Boillot 2018 (£295 per 12 bottles, ) To the north of the Mâcon is the Côte Chalonnaise, another source of excellent value white Burgundy. It’s home to our favourite Montagny made by Puligny-Montrachet’s famous family, Domaine J.M Boillot. Their Montagny 1er Cru Vieux Château is consistently impressive and the newly arrived 2018 is rich, fresh, and lively, we love it. At £24.58 per bottle it’s a terrific value wine made in an elegant Côte de Beaune style.

 

  • Meursault Les Gruyaches Jean-Philippe Fichet 2016 (£572 per 12 bottles) Finally, we’ve chosen a much-loved Meursault from the venerable Domaine Fichet: the 2016 Meursault Les Gruyaches. This tiny plot produces an outstandingly good and very classic village Meursault that’s beautifully perfumed with white flowers, apple and pear. Highly recommended. 

For the reds we’re sticking to Bordeaux classics in great vintages.

  • Ch La Fleur Coterie Bordeaux 2018 (£129 per 12 bottles, £139 per 6 magnums) Ch La Fleur Coterie is our house claret and a perennial Goedhuis favourite. Packed with fresh red fruits and silky soft, the 2018 is utterly delicious and a steal at £10.75 a bottle.

 

  • Ch Juguet Grand Cru St Emilion 2016 (£240 per 12 bottles) The 2016 Ch Juguet is another incredibly good value Bordeaux. 2016 was an excellent vintage for the Bordelais, and this Right Bank claret is full of energy and really hitting its stride today. Bramble fruits and Morello cherries are layered with pepper and dark chocolate. It gives a lot of complexity for just £20 a bottle.

 

  • Ch Gloria St Julien 2015 (£220 per 6 bottles) Finally, from the Left Bank, Ch Gloria is one of the best cru bourgeois you can find. The 2015 has aged perfectly and shows the remarkable quality of this non-classified St Julien. Crushed violets, liquorice and graphite melt into sleek blackberry and blueberry fruits. Delicious today or can be cellared for years to come. 

 

As autumn sets in and lockdown measures loom, this is definitely not the time to have an empty wine rack or cellar. Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic and these wines fit the bill perfectly.

    Goedhuis, April 2020

    This is a bona fide Goedhuis favourite and a wine that we have been buying for decades. Plenty of floral aromas with notes of nectarine and honeysuckle. On the palate this is a lovely expression of an unoaked Chardonnay from the Mâcon region, clean, pure and bright. A charming wine with a delicate, fresh finish.

    Goedhuis, September 2020

    A brilliant Montagny from a distinguished domaine with extensive holdings in Puligny Montrachet. The Boillots put their winemaking expertise to great effect in the Côte Chalonnaise vineyards of Montagny. The 2018 shows lovely citrus and stone fruit flavours on the nose with hints of camomile and brioche. On the palate the fruit is gently carried by a refreshing acidity and minerality which all flow through onto a long finish.

  • JAM

    Score: 90

    10,000 bottles are produced of this single vineyard 1er Cru and for me it represents a big step up. Clear pale colour with a touch more primary fruit to the nose compared to the regular 1er cru. The fruit marches nicely across the palate, not too ripe, a little greengage, with an excellent juicy finish.

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    This tiny village parcel is tucked just beneath 1er Cru Charmes towards the Puligny end of the village. This has good weight and a beautiful bouquet of white peaches and white flowers with some understated power on the finish.

  • BURG

    Score: 87-90

    Reduction. Rounder and clearly riper medium-bodied flavors possess a succulent mouth feel as well as plenty of punch on the clean and citrus-inflected finale that is definitely quite crisp but not edgy. It is however bone dry and probably will not be for everyone. Drink: 2022+

  • DC

    Decanter, January 2018,
    Score: 91

    In the Fichet cellar Les Gruyaches always produces a very classical Meursault, from 85 year old vines below Charmes. Notes of apple, pear, nutmeg and oatmeal introduce a nicely concentrated, glossily textural and complete wine, with a deep core and a sappy, penetrating finish. Excellent. Drink 2020-2030

    Goedhuis, June 2020

    Situated just outside Libourne in Fronsac, La Fleur Coterie is a beautiful 8 hectare estate. It is a perennial Goedhuis favourite and the perfect house claret. The 2018 has lots of rich bramble fruits on the nose and a touch of spice. The fresh and supple palate is bursting with juicy black fruits. All the hallmarks of a classic right bank Bordeaux at a very affordable price tag.

    From the famous Moueix stable of wines, Ch Juguet is all about classicism in its style and character. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, it is brimming with dark black fruits that are supported by a gentle tannic structure. A pleasing, subtle freshness on the finish.

    An excellent wine, with masses of succulent fruit. Juicy Merlot fruit flavours are complemented by a bite of Cabernet freshness. Dark black fruits and crushed violets linger on the finish. A great bottle for mid-term ageing.

  • NM1

    Neal Martin, July 2019,
    Score: 93

    The 2015 Gloria is another Saint-Julien that has improved over the last 12 months. It has a bolder and more exuberant bouquet than some of its peers, featuring lush blackberry and blueberry fruit and revealing a touch of iodine and crushed violet with aeration. The medium-bodied palate displays supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and very pure fruit intensity (black cherries, bilberry and boysenberry), although it clams shut toward the finish. Slightly more modern in style than its peers, this should still age with style. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

  • NM

    Neal Martin, April 2016,
    Score: 90-92

    The 2015 Gloria is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot cropped at 51 hl/ha, matured in 40% new wood. It was picked between 21 September and finishing on 7 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a fragrant bouquet with dark cherries, cedar and touches of cigar box - classic Saint Julien in many ways, though it does not have the complexity of great recent vintages such as the 2010. The palate is well balanced, clean and pure with fine tannin. The acidity is nicely judged, not a million miles away from the 2015 Lagrange in terms of its refinement, but this has perhaps a touch more detail on the finish. Perhaps one of the more approachable Saint Julien wines this vintage, give this 4-5 years in bottle and then drink over the next 20 years.

  • AG

    Antonio Galloni, April 2016,
    Score: 87-89

    The 2015 Gloria is intense and quite powerful, but also a bit rough around the edges. Iron, smoke, red stone fruit, pencil shavings and tobacco give the wine its rustic personality, an impression that is reinforced by the burly tannins. There is good intensity in the glass, even if some angular contours remain. Hints of inky crème de cassis and spice add the closing shades of Saint-Julien expression. Tasted three times.
