I AM PROUD TO OFFER:
2012 Bourgogne Rouge
From a blend of 4 parcels in Northern Nuits, Vosne and Chambolle. This is amazingly good but shouldn’t come as a surprise as the parcels are all well situated. This is my new housepour red Burgundy.
2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Mombies
From a single vineyard – Les Mombies. Not overly ripe as some wines can be in 2012. Clean and pure and very pretty. A quintessential Chambolle. Excellent value!
2012 Vosne-Romanee VV
Old vines from parcels in Flagey-Echezeaux. This is one quality level above the basic Vosne cuvee which we will have for 2013. More structure and focus to be found here. Bottled separately from the basic Vosne villages since 2001.
2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Petits Monts
“The Vosne-Romanee Les Petits-Monts 2012 from Sirugue represent another step up in quality for Domaine Sirugue. The bouquet is offering pure juicy red fruit … intense with lovely Vosne minerality and spices – notes of violets, peony rose and a hint of oak. On the palate layers of rich fruit – medium weight – focused by a lovely minerality. A very charming effort with a lovely expression of Vosne terroir – a delightful 1er cru.” Rated 91-92 by Steen Öhman.
2012 Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru
(1-2 barrels made from >100 year old vines)
“The Grands Echezeaux 2012 from Sirugue represent another step up in quality for Domaine Sirugue. The bouquet is offering layers of juicy red fruit … intense with lovely Vosne minerality and spices. On the palate layers of rich and velvet fruit – a sumptuous and quite openly knit wine – very typical for the terroir. It has charm, poise and the concentration is there .. a quite gorgeous Grands Echezeaux in the making. Keep an eye on Domaine Robert Sirugue … they are improving each year … the 2012 are delightful.” Rated 93 by Steen Öhman.
