13 December 2015 1er Cru White Burgundy That's Ripe and Juicy December 13, 2017By Savour Wine & Cheese General, Reviews Savour Wine & Cheese, Wine 0 Savour Wine and Cheese Special Offers from Cynthia Hurley French Wines Domaine Ninot White Burgundy Astonishing Value for Premier Cru We're not talking about plain old Chardonnay- this 1er Cru Gresigny is soaked with wonderful, intense notes of lemons, grapefruits and melons. That's what we like in our French Chardonnay: pure fruit with assertive flavors not driven by oak, but rather by the fruit itself. The vibrant acidity keeps it pert and lively. Erell Ninot's reputation for great winemaking in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise is on the rise. Her latest release from 2015 is outstanding and perfectly ripe for immediate enjoyment. That's what they say about the 2015 White Burgundies - ripe, opulent, and fleshy. Domaine Ninot, Rully, 1er Cru Gresigny 2015 $33.99 per bottle Erell Ninot is one of those perfectionist, over-achieving growers and winemakers that we are proud to support. In 2005, Erell took over Domaine Ninot from her father, to continue the family's legacy that dates back to 1313 (Yes, that's right!). By 2008 she was awarded the "Trophée de Jeune Talent" - the annual award for the best young winemaker in Burgundy. And the accolades have not stopped there. France's most respected wine publication, La Revue du Vin de France , decorated her with their prestigious "Coup de Coeur" award. So when we visit her modest tasting room, we are struck by her humility. Yes, her placards and trophies are there. They're just placed as an afterthought on a side-table. We came away from our tasting with two words on our lips: fruit and flavor (and get more wine if we can). Allen Meadows of Burghound is also an Erell Ninot fan. Meadows immediately recognized the irresistible rapport between value and quality at this Domaine. In his 2008 review of Ninot's wines, he notes her use of natural yeasts, cool maceration, and 100% de-stemming. "She (Erell) professes to search for elegance above all else but enjoys overt fruit and the pleasure of drinking wines that are pleasurable to drink. Thus the style is more forward..."- Allen Meadows, Burghound We like Gresigny for its depth, wonderful taunt acidity and rich, expressive fruit. Thoroughly ripe, juicy, and fresh - Gresigny is primed for enjoyment right now, and over the next three years. But let's be realistic - this case won't last six months! This is super high value white Burgundy - and they make only about 575 cases.
