Finding a great new producer in Burgundy now is probably the hardest task of all for a wine importer, the amount of interest and zeal, particularly for the red wines of the Côte de Nuits is unparalleled, then you add the jewel in the crown - Vosne-Romanée - and it is just impossible...but thankfully not completely
This is a seriously great discovery, Benoit Chevallier has since 2019 been making wines from family vines in Nuits St Georges and Vosne-Romanée; I visited him in his cellar this year and we tasted through his wines, what a fantastic experience!
Every attention is made here and the quality is exquisite, particularly the concentration, these are wines that have all the silk, all the finesse but they are deep and resonant. That is rare anywhere
Another star in born! though this is already a great estate and I am very excited to be able to bring some of Benoit's wines to Australia in the future.
