An Offer of Mercurey from Domaine Michel Juillot 

As prices of Burgundy from the most well-known addresses continue to escalate (some might sat insanely), we mere mortals who love these ethereal Pinot Noirs  need to find the hidden gems. You should be happy to know that I've done some detective work on your behalves and found a real gem.

I had been hearing good things whispered about the wines of Domaine Michel Juillot for some time, but hadn't the opportunity to taste them. I finally did yesterday and couldn't wait to offer them to you at special 4-pack pricing.

Domaine Juillot is located in Mercurey, one of the Southern-most appellations in Burgundy. In his very informative book on Burgundy, Anthony Hanson calls Juillot "the most dynamic estate in the village," and justifiably so. Juillot has married traditional, sustainable viticulture with modern wine-making techniques to produce wines that have both soul, and a delicious polish to them. The flavors here are of silky cherry fruit with a subtle underpinning of mocha and spice, and the aromatics just jump out of the glass. For the pure pleasure of drinking delicious Pinot, these wines can't be topped for the price. 

Today I  am offering cuvees from two of Juillot's premier crus: Les Champs Matin, and Clos Tonnerre which Juillot holds as a monopole (only he farms it). Both vineyards have excellent South and South-Eastern facing expositions. Both are drinking beautifully now but can certainly develop and age for 5-8 years.

Buy any 4-pack of these wines, mixed or matched, and get 15% off the shelf price. Quantities are extremely limited.

The wines will arrive at the shop for pick-up or shipping 4/23/14. This offer is good until 4/22/14.
