A typical Santenay red wine is more deeply colored than the wines from further north, but still retains the dark cherry color so characteristic of red Burgundy. The aromas are of licorice, red berries and violets, and the most perfumed examples also show notes of rose petals.
We took into stock some of Debray’s 2008 offerings some years ago, have kept them perfectly and they are now in great shape for drinking. The village/commune of Aloxe-Corton sits towards the northern end of the famed Côte de Beaune and is the only commune on the Côte to boast Grand Cru domaines for red wine. The Valozières domaine, sits tucked against the Grand Cru parcelles and offers this excellent Premier Cru red. Whilst not the deepest Aloxe-Corton ever, red fruits and flavours of ageing merge beautifully here.

Gevrey-Chambertin requires little introduction to most as one of the Côte de Nuits' most revered appellations. As with most Côte de Nuits reds, it offers a darker and slightly more complex wine (even as red Burgundies go) featuring the earthy gamey-ness notes that typifies the reds of these stellar communes.
We took into stock a number of of Debray’s 2008 offerings some years ago, have kept them perfectly and they are now in great shape for drinking. Volnay, from the middle of the Cote de Beaune, has always offered the the lighter and fruitier side of red Burgundy (red fruits: redcurrants, cherry, raspberry, strawberry) and this one does that in spades, with the flavours of ageing now nicely laid down among these.
A brilliant dark ruby colour. The expressive and complex nose has aromas of red fruits with woody notes. We find these same aromas on the palate which are well enveloped by delicately blended tannins.
This Gevrey Chambertin is perfectly balanced and reflects all the elegance of Pinot Noir beautifully.
A deep dark ruby red with beautiful deep purple streaks. The expressive nose seduces us with its stoned fruits, spices and smoky notes. On the palate, this wine is silky, round and full, with well blended tannins. A sophisticated Nuits-Saint-Georges
Aromatic, floral notes. On the palate, it is fairly thin in body with fresh acidity. All the elements are in balance but weak. Drink young. One-third new barrels used in this wine. Tasted in: Burgundy, France. Maturity: Drink.
These grapes used to be sold to the local cooperative until 1996, when Jean-Claude Lapalu started his own winery. Lapalu’s 12 hectares of old vines in Brouilly are farmed biodynamically, with natural winemaking methods followed in the winery. Very fragrant and expressive, it displays aromas of violet and juicy red berry. Fresh and very much alive on the palate, it has depth and plenty of dark berry and spice character.
Resplendent ruby colouring. Nose and palate come together with aromas of black cherry. Flower and mineral notes underscored by delicate tannins plus a satisfyingly long finish make this wine the fruitiest of the Chambertin family.
