Because we are always pleasure seekers as well as being ‘sporty’. We have decided to dedicate this page to tell you our little secrets. Below, you will find references to different wineries and wines that have really left an impact on us personally. This could be due to their quality price ratio, their specific characteristics, or their story. Throughout this article, we will try to give you a quick overview of our thoughts on this subject.
However, we are by no means going to say either what is good and what is not as this depends also on your personal taste. But, simply we will let you know, the different types of wine that have left an impression with us, given us pleasurable experiences and above all wines with which we have shared some good times with our friends, our customers and our family.
I like to compare wine to people. A wine is born, matures, ages, changing its mood but deep down each has its’ own unique character. We could say that it changes slightly every day. At each tasting of the same wine, we are reintroduced to the same person but in a different context.
This area between Beaune and Santenay, has limestone hills which produce the biggest white wine names in the world. This area with a width of 3-4 km and 30 km in length is so to speak contradictory… It produces majestic red wines around Pommar and Volnay and yet also succeeds in being one of the only biggest Chardonnay producers also.
Saint Aubin 1er cru Les Cortons Domaine Duchemin
Maranges 1er cru Clos du roi Domaine Bernard Regnaudot
La cote chalonnaise is a narrow zone that is found in the area of Saône-et-Loire, in the North and the South of the town Chalon-sur-Saône. It is one of the subdivisions of the vineyards in Burgundy. The vineyard is done in a different way to normal with the vines rather more in clusters or placed less separated from the other vines. We could say that this area is a bit of a gold mine because…..Planted majoritively in Chardonnay, you will also find the fantastic Pinot Noir wine.
Rully 1er cru Vauvry 2017 Domaine Sylvain et Lucie Ponsot
Givry 1er cru Les Grands Pretants Domaine Sarrazin
The Mâconnais vineyeard or the vineyard of Mâcon is a wine production area situated in the domaine Saône-et-Loire, which extends around 50 km from Tournus à Mâcon. It is the last vineyard that uses limestone before heading further down South towards Beaujolais and the granite soils. La Roche de Soultré is one the natural remarkable sites in Bourgogne.
Pouilly-Fuissé Clos de Mr Nolly 2006 Domaine Maison Valette
The Chablis Vineyards is situated in the area of l’Yonne. It produces different appellations and denominations of Chablis, which are all sophisticated dry white wines with Chardonnay: petit chablis, chablis, chablis premier cru and chablis grand cru. Le Chablis is a beautiful area. We don’t produce Chablis in Australia…. 🙂
