Who Produce Burgundy?

The red Burgundy wine region has always had a special place in my heart. Their terroir (that specific feeling of location) is prominent in their greatest expression; they have a balanced mouth feel and are structured while remaining graceful.

The large collection of Burgundy that we offer at Paul Marcus Wines has always been a source of pride for us, and that continues to be the case.

Over the last few months, I’ve been particularly taken with a couple of noteworthy producers who happen to be located at opposite ends of the Côte d’Or–and at opposite ends of the price spectrum:

Domaine Duroché, which is located in the far northern reaches of the Côte de Nuits, and Domaine Maurice Charleux & Fils, which is located in the southern reaches of the Côte de Beaune.

When it comes to Domaine Duroché, the terms “rising star” are almost often used in conjunction with the winery. After joining the domain in 2003, Pierre Duroché was appointed as the company’s president two years later.

The domain has been transformed since then, with fresh life and vitality infused into this venerable Gevrey-Chambertin estate that has been in operation since 1933, according to his own admission.

Duroché has vineyard holdings in the Gevrey appellation totaling more than eight hectares. In accordance with expectations, the soil’s health is given the highest care.

Both in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes are subjected to a thorough sorting process. Everything is de-stemmed, and the wines are never aged in new wood for more than 15 percent of their total time in barrel.

Duroché’s top-tier cuvees may cost upwards of $500 per bottle; nevertheless, its village-level wine is still considered to be a good deal.

Despite its subtle force and attractive grace, the 2017 Domaine Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin ($78) reveals the earthy, mineral characteristics of the Gevrey terroir, which are so characteristic of the region. Despite the fact that it will undoubtedly age gracefully, it may also be savored at a youthful age.

The three little villages of Maranges are located about an hour south of Gevrey, approximately to the southwest of Santenay, but still inside the Côte de Beaune. Vineyards and the winery of Domaine Charleux are located on the hillsides of Dezize-lès-Maranges in the region of Burgundy.

Many of you are already aware of these value-driven Burgundies; they have been a mainstay in our store for many vintages and are possibly the most consistent Burgundies available in that price range, according to our tasting notes.

Most of the wines from Maranges have a medium-bodied body and a moderate amount of acidity, making them suitable for immediate consumption. Most of the vineyard’s exposure is south-southwest, with clay and limestone soils abounding.

The 2018 Maranges Vieilles Vignes ($29) is made from grapes that are more than 80 years old and have excellent concentration and length.. Although it is somewhat darker in color, this wine shows the vibrancy of this year’s crop.

The 1er Cru Maranges ‘Les Clos Roussots’ ($33) is made from the warmer 2017 vintage. Most of the vines in this area are located on blue-clay soils with some limestone and get south and southeast exposures. It is upfront and simple to drink, with considerable complexity in the finish, which is reminiscent of a raspberry jam.

A few bottles of the 2016 1er Cru ‘Le Clos des Rois’ ($30) are still available. This bottle’s structure and complexity are enhanced by the higher quantity of limestone found in these south- and southwest-facing vines. With red-fruit aromas and flowery and spicy overtones, this wine is really excellent.

There are hundreds of more noteworthy Burgundy producers from which Paul Marcus Wines may choose, of course. Allow us to assist you in discovering everything that Burgundy has to offer. Come on down to the store.
