Olivier Leflaive 2012 Oncle Vincent Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30

Vincent Leflaive was the uncle of Olivier Leflaive. The wine, from old vines, is made in homage to him. Impressively rich and full-bodied, it has some toastiness as well as fresh acidity and apple and citrus flavors. It’s tight at the moment, showing a steely character that will soften. Drink from 2016.

Domaine des Croix 2011 Pinot Noir (Bourgogne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $34

For a Bourgogne Rouge, this is a serious wine with firm tannins as well as attractive strawberry fruits. It’s juicy, perfumed and rich.

Simon Bize 2010 Les Champlains Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $26

This has a delicate citrus character and a tangy, minerally texture. The ripe fruits are balanced by acidity.

Jean-Marc Brocard 2010 Kimmeridgien Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  1. $18

Just an edge of butter gives this wine roundness and extra richness. Along with this character comes ripe peach fruit, lifted with acidity. Ready to drink. Screwcap.

Domaine Leflaive 2007 Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  1. $56

Light, fresh citrus aromas filled by beautiful spicy wood, with lovely crisp final character. The spice and wood add to the crisp juiciness of the wine.

Domaine Leflaive 2006 Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  1. $56

Beautifully rich for such a lowly appellation in the Burgundy hierarchy. It is soft, open, dense, with ripeness and balancing acidity as well as flavors of pineapple and citrus pointing up the richness, just touched by wood.

Domaine Anne Gros 2006 Pinot Noir (Bourgogne)

  • Editors' Choice

Great black fruits with solid tannins create an impressively dense structure for a wine with a simple Burgundy appellation. The acidity is there, but more important are delicious black plum flavors.

Château de Meursault 2003 Clos du Château Chardonnay (Bourgogne)

  1. $21

This wine comes from the walled vineyard in front of Patriarche’s Château de Meursault. Although it is simply Bourgogne Blanc, it is treated as a showpiece vineyard. That explains the richness, the weight and the layers of well-judged new wood. This is as ripe as many Meursaults but will develop more quickly. Imported by Cannon Wines Limited.
