Chandon de Briailles 2017 | Burgundy 2017 En Primeur
Domaine Chandon de Briailles has long been a Goedhuis favourite. They epitomise the best of the fine, poised and excellent value red Burgundies coming from the region’s lesser-known appellations. In 2017 they have really hit a sweet spot and the press are being positively exuberant in their enthusiasm!
Neal Martin comments, “Keep it under your hat, but this Savigny-lès-Beaune property is one of the most overlooked and underrated in the Côte d'Or... The bottom line is that they are making damn good wine… after visiting here for many years, I can say that the 2017s rank amongst their finest. The freshness and terroir expression is the best I have ever seen…”
“There is so much to recommend here. Those looking for quality without busting wallets should make a beeline for the superb Pernand-Vergelesses Île de Vergelesses. An appellation and indeed, a Premier Cru that is often overlooked, it produced wonderful whites and reds in 2017 – perfect drinking over the next seven to 10 years.”
Matthew Jukes also waxes lyrical, “The Chandon de Briailles wines have improved enormously of late and 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune, 1er Cru Les Lavières, Domaine Chandon de Briailles (17.5+/20, £360 per 12 IB) looked lovely and lush with velvety fruit and also attractive perfume. 2017 Pernand-Vergelesses, 1er Cru Île des Vergelesses, Domaine Chandon de Briailles (17.5+/20, £450 per 12 IB) was more powerful and the tannins were superbly fit and responsive. I am very impressed with these two wines.”
In addition to these highly recommended Premiers Crus we also have small parcels of two superb, and well- priced, Grands Crus – Corton Les Marechaudes and Corton Bressandes – offered subject to availability.
