  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Cherry aromas, suggestions of earth, brambly fruit, light truffle scents, licorice, and a hint of mocha on the nose. Medium-bodied, with moderately intense dark cherry flavors. Good structure. Has a nice fleshiness. Balanced, with supple tannins. Builds in intensity on the finish. Still young. Check back again around 2016.

      Food pairing: ham and lighter meats

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2010 Bourgogne Les Amerots

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Bourgogne
    Les Amerots

    $17

    Great value in everyday Pinot Noir! The grapes from this vineyard are grown directly across the road from Pommard, and create a nice basic red Burgundy that shows its fruit.

    • Youthful with a bright, playful nose featuring medium-intensity cherry and kirsch aromas along with black pepper, sweet spice, and a woodsy note. Hints of something floral hover in the background. The palate features tart maraschino cherry and kirsch flavors. Good fruit intensity. Bright on a moderately long finish.

      Food pairing: Lighter meats, ham

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2012 Marsannay Les Echezeaux

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2012 Marsannay
    Les Echezeaux

    $25

    A Pinot Noir in the same style as Les Amerots, but richer and more intense. Grown way up by Dijon, near the Côte de Nuits, this is a great basic Pinot Noir with excellent value. Some of our customers can’t get enough of it! Available in 2 vintages.

    • Gorgeous, complex nose. A bouquet of floral notes (especially violets). Also truffles, raspberry, and dried fruit aromas. Prominent red fruit flavors, red licorice, light earthy notes, black pepper and suggestions of spice on the palate. Medium-bodied with moderate acidity. Slightly tart, zesty plum and raspberry flavors. Concentrated and persistent. Has an extended, fruity finish with hints of something savory. Attractive now, but drink by around 2017.

      Food pairing: Pork dishes in light fruit (prune) sauce

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Marsannay Les Echezeaux

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Marsannay
    Les Echezeaux

    $25SOLD OUT

    A wine in the same style as Les Amerots, but richer and more intense! Grown way up by Dijon, near the Côte de Nuits, this is a great basic Pinot Noir with excellent value. Some of our customers can’t get enough of it! Available in 2 vintages.

    • Earthy scents combine with up-front fruit and hints of clove and other spices on the nose. There is a musky element to the nose as well, but the wine comes across as clean nevertheless and on the palate similarly combines a certain rustic quality with rather more finesse than Marsannay is generally noted for. Still somewhat closed, with tannins veiling the underlying fruit, but solidly structured, promising good things ahead. Drinkable now but likely to soften considerably and to improve through around 2017–2018.

      Food pairing: Ribs, duck, venison, rabbit, other game

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Auxey-Duresses Les Ruchottes

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Auxey-Duresses
    Les Ruchottes

    $28

    One of our standard, everyday-drinking white Burgundies, this is a somewhat rustic but classic Chardonnay from this region. On the mellower side of Auxey-Duresses wines, nicely balanced with good minerality. Great for casual parties!

    • A very delicate pale gold and with a nose suggestive of white asparagus, herbs, and other botanicals that doesn’t quite prepare you for the richness of the palate—a palate marked by particularly rich, grapey flavors on the mid-palate followed by an extraordinarily long, nicely balanced finish.

      Food pairing: Oysters, grilled and herbed fish, pork

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Auxey-Duresses
    Les Ruchottes

    $28

    One of our standard, everyday-drinking white Burgundies, this is a somewhat rustic but classic Chardonnay from this region. On the mellower side of Auxey-Duresses wines, nicely balanced with good minerality. Great for casual parties!

    • Lively and vibrant, like a sunny spring day after rain. Citrus, green apple, and wet limestone on the nose. Light and crisp on the finish. Good acidity suggests a great pairing with ceviche.

      Food pairing: Ceviche

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2012 Pernand-Vergelesses En Caradeux

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2012 Pernand-Vergelesses
    En Caradeux

    $32

    Somewhat rustic yet round and balanced, and with a mineral lemon taste, this Chardonnay Village is quick and firm in its youth and develops a smoother and more supple feel over time. Another fine white Burgundy for casual occasions.

    • Scents of hay and pear blossom and distant toasty hints mix with more perfumed, floral scents (acacia) for a complex nose that sends the mind searching for adjectives. Shows lovely poise on the palate, balanced between a fruity, rich mouthfeel and crisp, persistent acidity apparent behind the fruit and through to a lingering, acid-dominated finish with the most delicate of slightly grippy tannins. Still young, but this wine has the structure to suggest it will reward cellaring.

      Food pairing: oysters, other shellfish, fish, pasta with light cream sauce, asparagus risotto

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Pernand-Vergelesses En Caradeux

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Pernand-Vergelesses
    En Caradeux

    $32

    Somewhat rustic yet round and balanced, and with a mineral lemon taste, this Chardonnay is quick and firm in its youth and develops a smoother and more supple feel over time. Another fine white Burgundy for casual occasions.

    • The nose conjures up ripe green apple peel, chalk, and sweet spice. The attack is marked by intense fruit and energizing acidity—like biting into a green apple. Later, notable for its creamy, slightly viscous texture. Attractive for layered caramel notes on a lengthy, fruity finish. Nicely balanced. Young and appealing now, but seems likely to improve through 2016.

      Food pairing: Shellfish in cream sauce

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2010 Meursault

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2010 Meursault
     

    $35

    Made from several different parcels in the Meursault appellation, the harmony between wood and wine makes this Chardonnay a very generous wine with a strong bouquet.

    • Not your typical fruit-forward, buttery Chardonnay. Floral and mineral elements dominate the nose and mid-palate, and there’s a bit of bone-dry pear on the finish. Rather than sip this wine on the porch, sit down with it over a rich dinner—perhaps prawns in a beurre blanc sauce.

      Food pairing: Creamy sauces

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2011 Meursault

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2011 Meursault
     

    $35

    Made from several different parcels in the Meursault appellation, the harmony between wood and wine makes this Chardonnay a very generous wine with a strong bouquet.

    • People use “bouquet” to describe the suite of scents in a wine. It’s an especially appropriate word here: the wine smells like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers. Lots of minerality on the palate, lasting through to the finish. Great structure and good ageing potential. One to lay down for future enjoyment.

      Food pairing: Baked brie

  • French White Burgundy Wine, Domaine Boyer-Gontard 2012 Meursault Premier Cru Perrieres

    Domaine Boyer-Gontard
    2012 Meursault Premier Cru
    Perrieres

    $53

    A wine that needs a few years in bottle — it develops an intense fragrance and sweetness with age. The wine is grown in a vineyard just beside Leflaive’s Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru Les Chalemaux. Gerard Boyer describes his Perrieres as a sensual wine and one of his best.

    • Reticent on the nose, but with dusky floral scents and suggestions of hay, tatami mats, citrus rind, and spice. Complex, evolving nose, the spicy elements being particularly in flux, pointing first to cloves, then to ginger, then to something not quite definable. Bright on the attack, then marked by an intensely fruity, brandy-like mid-palate and finally a protracted finish with the fruit and acid components seeming to dance on the tongue. Despite that, still seems to be holding something back. Approachable now, but will need time to show at its best.

      Food pairing: Lobster; crab; fish grilled or meunière; richly sauced scallops

    • Floral, perfumey notes on the nose with pear and stone fruit peeking through. Tart fruit on the palate. Lime peel lingers on the finish. A wine foodies will enjoy. It’s easy to imagine it pairing deliciously with goat cheese and endive.

      Food pairing: Goat cheese
