The reputation of the Burgundy region's wines, whose pedigree was first established by the Grand Dukes of Burgundy, has never faltered. This hallmark of excellence unites the multitude of different wines in this vast and multi-faceted province, which is a rich source of wine discoveries for our connoisseurs, many of whom specialise in Burgundy above all else. This section of the Club Cellar includes our favourite wines from Gevrey-Chambertin, Chablis, Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Beaune and Meursault, with a touch of Beaujolais, creating an excellent collection of wines at eyewateringly good Club prices.


 
Premium choice to serve with game: Pierre Guillemot Savigny-Lès-Beaune 'Les Grands Picotins’ 2009
Our premium choice for game is also a hidden gem in the UK, but it has been held in high esteem in France for generations. It is the Savigny-Lès-Beaune 'Les Grands Picotins’ 2009, made by a great character in Burgundian winemaking, Pierre Guillemot, whose eponymously named domaine produces some of the best wines in one of the last remaining undervalued areas of Burgundy.

Excellent Frederic Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 2009: Members save £101 per case
The specialist wine industry magazine Decanter is impressed by this Frederic Esmonin 2009, and we agree. Their critic notes: ‘Muted cherry nose. Juicy, rounded, and accessible but plenty of spice and tannic grip. Concentrated and robust ‘ and awards an impressive 17.5 points. Members save £101 a case.

Decanter Silver Medallist: Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc ‘'Les Femelottes’ 2011: a snip at £139 for 12
This gorgeous Bourgogne Blanc is literally a stride away from being named Puligny-Montrachet and costing a great deal more than its current price tag; the vineyards of ‘Les Femelottes’ lie just across the road from the famous Puligny-Montrachet vines. A real find: enjoy the quality at less than half the price!

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Rouge ‘La Taupe’ 2011: a Pommard by any other name: £142 per case of 12
This delicious red Burgundy is of a greater calibre than its label can infer. The vineyards of ‘La Taupe’ were classified as AOC Pommard until the 1970s and the vines themselves were planted as early as 1935—this is Pommard by any other name, but at a much more advantageous price for our Members.

Decanter Silver Medal winner: Chavy-Chouet Meursault 'Les Narvaux' 2011: save £200 a case
We are extremely pleased to be able to offer this tremendous Meursault—praised by Jancis Robinson and a Silver Medal winner from Decanter—at a price which only favoured elements of the wine trade can achieve. We urge Members to snap it up while we can still ensure this impressive deal.

Classic Chablis: the difficult-to-get Gerard Tremblay 2012: a snip at £147 per case of 12
Domaine Gerard Tremblay produces award-winning Chablis of the steely, mineral variety—and this is the most balanced, most exciting Chablis we can find at this price. Beautifully clean and crisp, with the refreshing flintiness we expect in a Chablis, yet with fine balance and a finish that lasts and lasts.

Premier Cru Chablis: 'Vaillons' 2002 by Daniel-Etienne Defaix: Members save over £100 a case

Daniel-Etienne Defaix owns one of the most ancient estates in Chablis, tended by his family since the 16th century. The 'Vaillons' site is similar to a Grand Cru and produces wines of great quality, which they keep in their cellars for six to 12 months before release, ensuring it is delicious and ready to drink.


Delicious natural Morgon Tradition Thévenet 2011: a must-buy for those who enjoy good Beaujolais

This is what wines of the region should taste like and demonstrates just how complex and versatile the Gamay grape can be. It is pure, clear and focused, with complex, savoury mineral and fruit flavours. Try this natural Beaujolais and you will find it difficult to return to the commercial stuff.
