History

"You can never totally possess a wine estate. You can only be a steward and caretaker of something to pass on to future generations".
This quote is particularly true of Jacques Prieur, and the Domaine's history, its wines, and the families that have owned it are the perfect illustration of Burgundy's timeless character.

 

The Domaine's strong point is to bring together under one name a selection of wines from the most prestigious terroirs in Burgundy. From Le Montrachet to Le Chambertin, by way of Le Corton, Les Echézeaux, and Le Musigny, the Domaine owns vineyards in some 22 appellations, including the most mythical in the Côte d'Or.

 

Consisting entirely of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus (except for Clos de Mazeray in Meursault, an exclusivity), the Domaine produces famous white and red wines. However, even the most superb terroir is nothing without experienced, passionate men and women to make the most of it. Since 1870, the families in charge of the Domaine have given priority to providing the utmost care and attention to their vines in order to preserve the soil and provide a fine environment to the vines, all viticultural practices are either sustainable or organic...

For 2010 Burgundy vintage prices rose, but not by much. Growers were already aware of the deficit in quantity when they announced their 2009 prices, so a gentle shading upwards (I speak in Euros), was the order of the day, except that the elastic between the village wines and the less fashionable premiers crus on the one hand, and the grands crus and top village premiers crus on the other, continues to widen. You will pay increasingly higher prices for Richebourg, Puligny-Montrachet, Les Folatières and Vosne-Romanée, Les Beaumonts, while Savigny-Lès-Beaune, premier cru and Paul Jacqueson's Rully, La Pucelles remain a bargain.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti 2010 / 20.0 points.


Fine colour. Aromatic, minerally nose. Not as fat as La Tache or Richebourg. A bit more of the stems. Best on the follow through. Very, very lovely complex fruit. Marvelous long, lingering finish. Truly excellent.

Chateau de Beaucastel 'Hommage a Jacques Perrin' 2001 (magnum)


Beaucastel has had some problems with the dreaded brett in the past but any suggestion of such issues now seem to be well behind it. Certainly, no evidence of it here. No evidence of anything but a stupendous wine. One sometimes wonders if some of the Rhone wines that have come out in recent years as 'flagships', with monumental price tags, are intended for nothing other than to jump on the Parker bandwagon and cash in while they can, with massive, overheated wine bombs. This is certainly a wine that has attracted very favourable reviews from Parker and high points. Well, he got it spot on. This is a brilliant, wonderful wine.


First made in 1989, it is a curious blend of 60% mourvedre, 20% grenache, 10% syrah and 10% counoise, though that can change in certain years such as 1998 which favoured grenache. It is only made in top years and only in small quantities, never more than 5,000 bottles, and usually considerably less.


It is ripe, big and full-flavoured. Finishes with ultra thin tannins and is incredibly long. So long. A mix of flavours with dry herbs and lots of cherry notes. This is a brilliant wine by any standard. The colour was so bright that it is simply impossible to imagine it is pushing a decade of age. It is sooo young.

“It was Saturday night, a seemingly improbable Day Two of this Bacchanalian extravaganza. The Rev was one day older, and we were all very much wiser thanks to the incredible array of once in a lifetime wines experienced the night before. There was not much more to do except do it again.”

“Musigny, consequently, is the only grand cru with the exception of Corton which can be white as well as red.

At its best the red wine can be quite simply one of the most delicious wines to be found in Burgundy. Frédéric Mugnier speaks of an elegance coupled with a richness without heaviness and an exceptional intensity. Maybe the most refined of all Burgundy, says Véronique Drouhin. Musigny excites Jasper Morris more than Chambertin or Richebourg. It is perhaps the quintessence of grace. Anthony Hanson finds a silky, lingering, dreamy aftertaste. Russell Hone simply wants his ashes to be scattered there. Speaking personally, and I know I'm not the only one to take this view, it is the summit of achievement. With its vibrant colour, exquisitely harmonious, complex, profound bouquet, the blissful balance between tannin, acidity and the most intensely-flavoured fruit - all the petits fruits rouges you could reasonably imagine - and its incomparable breed, depth, originality and purity on the palate, a great Musigny is heaven in a glass.”

“d'Arenberg Cenosilicaphobic Cat 2009 / Seriously? What would possibly possess someone to name a wine that?
Better I let them tell the story – “Growing up, fourth generation winemaker, Chester Osborn, had a large ginger cat with blood shot eyes named Non Alcoholic Booze.
In typical Australian fashion this was shortened to Booze after he was caught cleaning up a small red wine spill with his tongue. He developed quite a taste for red after that, but was denied access to his new found love by the concerned Osborn family. Consequently Non Alcoholic Booze lived a frustrated life, because despite his nickname, he suffered a monumental case of Cenosilicaphobia (the fear of an empty glass).”
I am not making that up!
The wine itself is a blend of 91% sagrantino and 9% cinsaut, but this vintage won't be released till mid 2012.
Tight, still very youthful Firm tannins and a wine that clearly needs some time to settle. Really quite concentrated. It does need a few years, by when it should be a very different wine. At the moment, too tannic for me. ”

“The 1978 was a very good year in Piemond, but also in Tuscany where the first three months of the year were cold and wet. Poor start, but then spring came early and summer was warm but not terribly hot. Fine growing season. Small, a good quality crop.

Bottle was in A1 condition. Decanted one hour. Deep dark, youtful colour. Very Bordeaux-like nose. Spicy, minty, ripe black fruit and hint of oak. Exceptionally full, refined and has very good acidity. Loads of fruit. A big, overwhelming and serious “old style” Sassicaia with long, velvety ending. No wonder, that Sassicaia 1978 got 20/20 scores from the judges at an international Cabernet tasting organised in London by Decanter.
