Côte de Nuits Alternatives

 Six Top-Value Wines


Andy Howard MW has recently published a feature on Côte de Nuits alternatives in the latest issue of Decanter Magazine and rounded up a list of top value wines from adjacent villages delivering excellent wines with less sticker-shock. Half a dozen of his list come from our producers here at Stannary St Wine Co., with excellent suggestions from Morey-St-Denis, Fixin, and Marsannay.


Morey St Denis Taupenot Merme


2014 Morey-St-Denis
Domaine Taupenot Merme

"The charming Romain Taupenot represents the family's seventh generation here, and he is a strong advocate of allowing terroir to shine through. Owning premier cru and villages level wines from Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle, and Gevrey, this is a serious estate - and this Morey is sleek, spicy, and fresh, supported by a mineral streak on the finish. The 20% new oak is beautifully integrated."

 Fixin les Crais Berthaut  

2014 Fixin 'Les Crais'
Domaine Berthaut

"Young star winemaker Amélie Berthaut's first vintage was only in 2013, but she has now taken over from her parents and is making some of the most elegant and precise wines in the nothern Côtes. This is pristine Fixin, in which 30% whole-bunch fermentation brings spice notes to the blueberry fruits."

Marsannay Boivins Domaine Coillot


2014 Marsannay 'Les Boivins'
Domaine Coillot

"Beautifully elegant, lots of structure and the ability to age very well. Bottles unfined and unfiltered following modest use of oak, the emphasis here is on finesse and crunchy bright red fruit. A seductive, classic style."

Morey St Denis Domaine Stephane Magnien    

2013 Morey-St-Denise
Domaine Stéphane Magnien

"A young producer with a small 4.5ha estate in Morey, Magnien's wines are focused, ethereal and show very restrained use of oak. Subtlety is the key here, along with hints of spice and leafy red fruits. While this is a Morey that needs a bit more time to open up, it is also a great introduction to both vintage and estate. One to follow."

Le Clos du Prieuré Liger-Belair    

2014 Le Clos de Prieuré, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits
Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair

"From 20- to 30-year-old vines lying on a steep, south-facing 1.1ha site, this is a delicious example of Hautes Côtes de Nuits. Using 100% destemmed grapes, it's an early-drinking Pinot with loads of bright framboise fruit, complemented by sweetness combine with round tannins and good energy."

Domaine Arlaud Bourgogne Roncevie    

2014 Bourgogne 'Roncevie'
Domaine Arlaud

"From a vineyard that was classified as Gevrey-Chambertin until 1964, this is an elegant, sweet Pinot from a top Morey producer: Domaine Arlaud is a 15ha estate with four grand cru sites to its name. Ready to drink now, this shows plenty of finesse and purity of fruit from 50-year-old vines."
