DOMAINE JESSIAUME 2017 VINTAGE OFFERING
The 2017 vintage will be a return to normal yields after several short and topsy-turvy growing seasons. Harvest was ripe and early: white wines are as good if not better than in 2014, reds are luscious and consistent. In short, 2017 is a vintage of charm, pleasure, and age-worthiness.
Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay, 2017, From two plots just outside Santenay AOC, this is the bargain beauty in the line-up – crisp, bright and great value all round.
Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Les Ecusseaux, A sliver of south-facing slope next to Meursault leading into Auxey – a racy, luscious winner.
Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières, 2017, This rare Chardonnay is grown on an exposed limestone vein within Gravieres, surrounded by Pinot Noir.
Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir, 2017, Ripe and ready, this Santenay-grown Pinot Noir is bursting with fresh red berry fruit flavors and a smooth, fine finish.
Santenay Clos du Clos Genet, 2017, One small walled enclosure within another, this parcel is in the town of Santenay itself – great story, great wine.
Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravieres, 2017, Jessiaume’s most important holding, and the signature vineyard of Santenay – available in three sizes for drinking pleasure!
Beaune 1er Cru Les Cent Vignes, 2017, Mid-slope majesty from this historic plot where « no vines » (les sans vignes) were grown until its potential was too much to hold back.
One of the most sought-after reds of the Cote de Beaune, this Volnay has succulent soft tannins, and a meaty mouthfeel.
Volnay 1er Cru Les Brouillards, From a thin strip of vines on the Pommard border, not far from Regions, so it has similar iron-rich density and power, for half the price!
Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravieres, Extremely limited. Inquire with your sales person for availability.
1990 – A great vintage for red Burgundy – hot and dry summer (just enough rain) so thick skins with lots of color and flavor: impressive and well-balanced.
1988 – Well-structured red from a textbook growing season: this wine is destined for greatness, with full structure and concentrated aromas!
