Wine Wisdom - New Outstanding Burgundy

In this week's Wine Wisdom watch Tom highlight two outstanding Burgundies, one which was the star 2014 regional AC red and a white burgundy that was pitted against other regional AC whites at our recent panel tasting, but beat all the new comers to retain its rightful place as our baby Puligny Montrachet of choice.

Domaine Pernot - Belicard Bourgogne Blanc, 2011 & 12
Philippe Pernot is Paul's son, and launched his own domaine with his wife in 2009. Fine fruit frames a soft ripe mid palate sympathetically oaked and with a fine backbone of acidity that carries a long elegant finish. A wonderful example of Bourgogne Chardonnay at its finest
We have vintages 11 & 12 available.

Domaine Duroché Bourgogne Rouge, 2014
Devilishly plush, dense, forward & quaffable. That lovely sour cherry and wild strawberry nose is quite intense, and followed by lashings of red fruit with plenty of intensity and length. With a few months maturity it really comes into its own.
 
 
Recipe:
Perfect food pairing with the white Burgundy, with Halloween just round the corner Pumpkin risotto with fried sage leaves.

Chardonnay
One of the common mistakes people make is that they don't understand that all white burgundies are Chardonnay e.g. Chablis & pouilly fuisse
Pinot Noir
In the Cote du Beaune & Cote du Pied especially where Burgundy achieves its greatness. It's proposed that this is from compressed layers of geological strata going back a very, very long time with the roots pulling up some of the character. Absolutely delicious.
