Five wines from around the web #12

Here are some wines that should keep you happy in the new year, one of which I am drinking as I write.

Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2000, J et F Mugnier. Lovely Grand Cru Burgundy that can be drunk now with a lot of pleasure. This is a bargain. £80.31 from Four Walls Wine. Four Walls are good for people like me who cannot afford a whole case of stuff as they have no minimum order limit.

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Fuées 1995, J et F Mugnier: Yummy, yummy, I am just finishing off my glass now. The note is [link2post id=”1281″]here[/link2post]. £46.88 from Four Walls Wine.

Nuits Saint-Georges Premier Cru Clos de la Maréchale 2004, J et F Mugnier: One of the best Nuits I have tasted. This was the first vintage that Freddy Mugnier got this vineyard back from its rental to Faiveley. It has good Nuits character, but is incredibly elegant and refined. £40.19 from Four Walls Wine.

Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2001, Frédéric Esmonin: Bargain Grand Cru Burgundy that will age very well. £31.26 from Howard Ripley.

Chablis les Clos Grand Cru 2004, Jean-Paul Droin: After all of those wonderful red Burgundies a bottle of white almost-Burgundy. This is a linear, taught wine that will age well over the next 5 years or so. £27.91 from Howard Ripley.

More posts coming later today as the new year drinking continues.
