If anyone is interested …1st come 1st served on this limited production wine from Domaine Bertagna in Vougeot. The estate has been owned by the Reh family of Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt in Mosel since 1982. The estate has hit its stride starting with the 1988 vintage according to Clive Coates. This is a serious Burgundy Estate with significant changes and investments over the past decade.
Location is key in Burgundy and you could throw a rock into the Grand Cru Clos du Vougeot from the back of the Bertagna facility. Their vines in Nuits St. Georges are in some prime real estate as well.
The wines are all hand harvested in small boxes and brought into the
winery for sorting. After about a one week cold soak, wines are fermented in stainless steel for about three weeks at up to 28 degrees. The wine then goes in small barrels for about 18 months before assemblage for bottling. The Murgers sees about 30% new wood. The price is $400 for 6/750ml. See attached Decanter Review.
Also attached a picture of the cellars…yup even the Bourgogne Hautes
Cotes de Nuits sees the same care – half barrel aged and half stainless. Sourced
from vines sitting on limestone slopes just above the Nuits St.
Georges, the HCDN Called” Les Dames de Huguettes” is darn good Pinot
Noir priced at $200 /12 750ml.
