Small quantity - big quality Beaujolais and Burgundy

Great Beaujolais Value
2017 Comte de Langeron Beaujolais Villages...$14.99
A Family winery established in the village of Mercurey (Burgundy). Small production from old vines. An intense Beaujolais with great structure like a Burgundy. Since the 19th century, we have produced a broad range of Burgundy and Beaujolais appellations, part from family owned vineyards and the rest as vinificators.

"This red is a step up in quality from a basic Beaujolais. " - Gail Appleson, St. Louis Post Dispatch

2017 Comte de Langeron Cote de Brouilly...$19.99
The appellation of Côte de Brouilly sits on the high slopes of the extinct volcano Mont Brouilly and is surrounded by the larger appellation of Brouilly. Cote de Brouilly is bigger and riper than regular Brouilly.
Gorgeous nose of rose petals, violets and a hint of dark roast coffee.   On the palate, it has great body with a deep and generous core blueberries and ripe cherries. Drinks very well now but will age 4-8 more years.  Very small production.

2016 Comte de Langeron Coteaux Bourguignons Blanc...$19.99
  • 90% Chardonnay
  • 10% Aligote
Great white Burgundy at a great price!
This appellation, Coteaux Bourguignons, was created in 2011 covers red, white, and rosé wines, grown over four départements. The Coteaux Bourguignons appellation covers wines that can be blended or come from a single varietal, and which can use some more old-fashioned varietals.  Production of white is very small from this area and most of them do not leave France.  We are excited to bring this one in to Missouri!
A blend of Chardonnay and Aligoté of which most is matured in stainless steel.   It has a great Burgundy nose with a touch of minerality that comes from the Aligote.    Great flavors of tart apples and a steely acidity finishes off this great wine.  Highly recommended and very limited production
