How About a
Red Burgundy at nearly 35% off the National Price??
This week's selection : Domaine Michael Gay et Fils Beaune Aux Coucherias Premier Cru Vieilles Vignes 2009 is a bright, balanced French Pinot Noir, smooth with some dark, earthy and spicy notes.
A great choice for cellaring, or accompanying this year's Thanksgiving feast.
The wines of Michel Gay are considered among the best. Crisp with ripe summer cherries, just enough forest herbs for a healthy dose of earth, and beautiful balance of warm spicy notes with cool fruity tones.
92 Points Wine Spectator: "Cherry, black currant, underbrush and spice flavors are beautifully displayed on a smooth texture, supported by dense tannins. This seems set for a long life ahead, showing fine length, with a spicy, leafy finish."
Michel Gay and his son Sébastien run one of the highest regarded domaines in Chorey-les-Beaune. This estate is known for making very up-to-date wines that are well-concentrated and sturdy in structure. In some cases they really need a few years to open up, and they age very gracefully. The vineyards are farmed organically and hand harvested. Only 30% new oak is used. After 18 months the wines are bottled without filtration.
Aux Coucherias is a Premier Cru climat of the Beaune appellation in Burgundy. The Aux Coucherias sites are located at the heart of Beaune's belt of Premier Cru vineyards, between the town itself and the Mondes Rondes hillside. They are on steep slopes and benefit from slightly increased altitude (280m/920ft) and limestone-rich soil.
