Pair red wine with seafood? Of course! Especially if it is a mature red Burgundy like this ‘02 Vosne-Romanée from a venerable producer like Hudelot-Noellat. The subtle “dirt,” vibrant acidity, and ethereal red fruit paired perfectly with this John Dory in a sublime white sauce topped with a #nasturium leaf. @whiskysansei - thank you for sharing!
Below this immaculate white Castle and infrastructure is another complete separated world, the cellar. Entering the cellar is like entering another atmosphere. It’s gigantic, labyrinthine and filled with bottles. The oldest part is from the 12th century and held a mill wheel. The Vaults and the walls are covered with thick mold and it’s near dark. Capricious lightning with humidity and a coat of decay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the main storage rooms at Chateau de Meursault is completely dedicated to magnums. Separated by vintages, the oldest bottles are from 1977. Of course, those are limited in quantity, but there was still some dozens of them, it’s quite a lot for Magnums this old. Each harvest, the wines are aged in up to 12 000 barrels from different ages and different barrel makers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

RICHEBOURG 1955, Maison LEROY
Os Richebourgs da Leroy são especialmente ricos e intensos, masculinos, com imponente finesse. Este tinha cor granada-alaranjado clara. Aroma intenso e muito complexo, bastante etéreo, com notas de melaço, musgo, couro, remédio, muitas especiarias, uma ponta de acidez volátil. Paladar largo e macio, especialmente rico, fantastica integração e equilibrio, delicioso Impressiona ver um vinho de mais de 60 anos ainda cheio de vitalidade. Em uma prova de 17 Richebourgs Leroy este foi o mais impressionante (embora não a minha melhor nota)

JEAN-CHRISTOPHE IN FRANCE – JANUARY 2018
Check out what Jean-Christophe is up to as he visits our suppliers in France.
Back to serious work today! The day commenced with our first meeting/tasting at 9.30am with another newish Domaine for us, Domaine Lavanteureux. The two young brothers David and Arnaud have now firmly taking over the family business, in a little village next to Chablis called Lignorelles. Most of their Chablis are aged in barrels, which give the wines some roundness and complexity, yet they are still managing to keep the minerality of a typical Chablis wine. Their wines are outstanding but unfortunately, like a lot of Chablis producers, the volumes are extremely small due to the last complicated years of frost and hail. For example in 2017, Lavanteureux family lost more than 85% of their crop, very sad!
From there we tasted at one of the biggest names in Chablis, Domaine Raveneau. Isabelle, the daughter, showed us the 2016 range of wines straight from the barrels and a few of the 2017 out of the vats. As usual the superb wines of this Domaine have an extra “je ne sais quoi”, with its extra texture and mouthful. At Raveneau, unlike Laventeureux, the crop was lower in 2016 than 2017, meaning volumes are right down.
After lunch we visited the other big name of the village, Domaine Vincent Dauvissat. Again this is the new generation, the daughter Etiennette, who took us to the wonderful old cellar, where I have been trying wines for over 25 years. It is always an amazing experience, going down to the very old cellars and tasting Chablis with a unique character and feel. Like Raveneau, these wines are sought after and after you have tried them you will understand why.
With that we were finished with our little stay in Chablis and had to drive down (1.5 hours) to the town of Beaune. We still had some time in our day so we were able to visit another Domaine, Domaine Camille Giroux. Winemaker Carel took us down to the enormous underground cellars, where we tasted, out of the barrel, a lot of the 2016 red wines (red wine being their main style)...
