These wines are here and selling well. They are, in the way of top Cote de Beaune Reds and Whites, very enjoyable now, though they definitely have considerable potential to improve in bottle. Decanter Magazine has called us “one of the top Domaines to watch for in 2014.” John Gilman, the opinated author of View From The Cellar wrote “This has very quickly become one of my favorite domaines in Volnay.” Our Corton Bressandes was his most highly-rated Cote de Beaune red, and both he and Burghound’s Allen Meadows awarded our 2014 Corton-Charlemagne 93 points!
We held a wine dinner in New York at Rebele sold out more quickly than any winemaker dinner in their history. Forty seats disappeared in less than four hours. In Taiwan, a similar 40-seat dinner has also sold out, with over 400 people on the wait list.
Simply put: The red wines will be spectacular. They are slumbering in barrel now, but they are complete, rich wines that resemble the modern-day equivalents of the 1985s. These, like those, will be wines that will be approachable young but will reward a long sojourn in cool cellar for those with patience.
