Domaine Saumaize-Michelin, Pouilly-Fuisse 1er Cru, Clos sur la Roche, Burgundy EP 2022 (Case of 6 bottles)

From south facing vines at 380m. on the lower slopes of the Roche de Vergisson, this is one of his top cuvées from a site recently elevated to 1er Cru status. Power is present in abundance. Despite the high acid and minerality, the fruit... Read More

The Burgundy Pyramid

Making sense of the complexity of the complexity of Burgundy isn’t easy.

Though Burgundy only comprises 5% of France’s vineyard area, it holds 100 different Appellations, 25% of the entire French total.  There are no less than 5,000 growers, 85% of whom own less than 10 hectares, and four fifths of them make wine.

To make matters...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

Domaine Saumaize-Michelin, Pouilly-Fuisse 1er Cru, Clos sur la Roche, Burgundy EP 2022 (Case of 6 bottles)

From south facing vines at 380m. on the lower slopes of the Roche de Vergisson, this is one of his top cuvées from a site recently elevated to 1er Cru status. Power is present in abundance. Despite the high acid and minerality, the fruit is almost tropical – pineapple and tangerine. This is all supported by a pleasing dairy note. A little closed now – will need time. Late 2024-2030

"Darker fruit profile and more spicy than Les Courtelongs. Deeper and more golden in its fruit, broader but still with a crisp acid backbone. Embryonic and promising. 17/20, 2027-2034", Julia Harding MW,  www.jancisrobinson.com, 18th January 2024

Please note this wine is not available for immediate delivery and excludes duty & VAT, (payabale on delivery) We will contact you when the wine arrives in the UK, most likely in the autumn.

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
