Burgundy wine bundle - $298
1. Domaine Jayer-Gilles Cote de Nuits-Villages 2014
There is enough wood to notice on the pretty mix of red and blue pinot fruit that is cut with a whisper of earth. Once again there is more volume to the punchy, delicious and well-detailed flavors that deliver fine depth and length in the context of the appellation.
2. Domaine Jayer-Gilles Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2013 Red
We very much like the airy coolness of the pretty red berry fruit aromas that precede the intense and energetic middleweight flavors. There is bright acidity underpinning the finale where a mild trace of dryness shortens the persistence.
3. Domaine Jayer-Gilles Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2013 White
The robe is yellow pale colour. This Chardonnay displays beautiful notes of citrus, white flowers, honey and gingerbread. The balance between the oak and the fruit is just spot on giving the wine enough body and butteriness while retaining great freshness.
