Burgundy & Bordeaux – 67 Pall Mall Christmas Battle

Event Date: December 17, 2020 6:00pm (UK Time)

To celebrate a year of Bordeaux and Burgundy #67athome tastings with Jasper Morris MW and Jane Anson, we thought we would end 2020 with a lineup of some of the best wines from both regions, from iconic and well known and smaller cult choices, with Jasper and Jane introducing their choices.

Jane is kicking things off with two exceptional Bordeaux dry whites, one classic in the shape of Mission Haut-Brion Blanc 2013 alongside a newer creation Cos d’Estournel Blanc 2016. The reds start with two cult wines that show the kind of terroir-driven intuitive winemaking that is often associated with Burgundy rather than Bordeaux – the biodynamic Château le Puy cuvée Barthélemy 2010, followed by the iconic l’Eglise-Clinet from Pomerol in the 2000 vintage. To finish off, two great classics in Léoville las Cases 2001, reputed as being one of their greatest ever vintages, and an unquestionable 20th century wine star the 1996 Mouton Rothschild.

  1. 2013 Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Leognan
  2. 2016 Château Cos d’Estournel Blanc
  3. 2010 Château Le Puy Barthélemy
  4. 2000 Château L’Eglise-Clinet, Pomerol
  5. 2001 Château Leoville Las Cases 2eme Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Julien
  6. 1996 Château Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classé

I have chosen a classical Chablis from the outstanding, but undersung producer, Samuel Billaud, followed by a mature Meursault from Jean-Marc Roulot: only a ‘village’ wine, but what a vineyard! The red selection starts in the Côte de Beaune – a youthful Savigny from Domaine Bize and a wine that has already found favour during 67 Pall Mall zooms – altogether too good a wine to leave out – the Comte Armand’s Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 2010. Those who like stems in their wines will be excited by Domaine Dujac’s Clos de la Roche from the same vintage, before we finish with one of Burgundy’s great classic wines: Clos St Jacques from Domaine Armand Rousseau. The 1999 vintage should be just about ready!

  1. 2017 Samuel Billaud Mont de Milieu, Chablis Premier Cru
  2. 2010 Domaine Roulot Meursault Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir Cote de Beaune
  3. 2018 Savigny-les-Beaune, 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses, Domaine Simon Bize
  4. 2010 Pommard, Clos des Epeneaux, 1er Cru Domaine du Comte Armand
  5. 2010 Clos de la Roche, Grand Cru, Domaine Dujac
  6. 1999 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques, Domaine Armand Rousseau
