Discover Elegant Burgundy Wines
Boasting over 400 different soil types, the Burgundy region has an intricate classification system based on terroir. Land is King in this small but mighty region. Climate and soil can vary between neighboring vineyard sites, allowing for a range of styles despite close proximity. The entire region has maintained a reputation for its prestigious winemaking, and many producers around the world look to this area for style inspiration.
The Millesima team has curated bottles for the Burgundy Classic Gift Set, which features three Burgundy wines that accurately represent their distinct appellations and terroirs. This set includes wines from each level of distinction - Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru – in order to show the range of terroirs the region has to offer. Powerful and complex, they are the truest and most elegant expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The Burgundy Classic Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles from well-known producers: the Joseph Drouhin Estate is a family-run winery and one of the largest top Burgundy producers in the region; Patrick Piuze produces 18 different Burgundy white wines from Petit Chablis to Chablis Grand Cru appellation levels ; and Domaine A.F. Gros is a family business specializing in the production of hand-crafted Burgundy red wines from Pinot Noir.
Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin Village 2019
Pinot Noir – Gevrey-Chambertin
Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin presents a nice ruby color, clean and colored, bright and shiny. The aromas are intensely fruity and typical of this appellation: black cherry, wild blackberry, a fine touch of licorice. The woodiness is fine and subtly integrated. We find at the end of the palate the fruity notes of the first nose.
Patrick Piuze Chablis 1er cru « Vaillons les Minots » 2020
Chardonnay – Chablis
Les Minots' is a specific parcel within 1er Cru Vaillons with 70-year-old vines that benefit from southern exposure. This wine is showing very well, combining on the nose aromas of crisp white fruit with a chalky minerality. On the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, generous and satiny, with a chewy structure, remarkable precision and a mineral finish.
Domaine A.F. Gros Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Nuits Domaine 2019
Pinot Noir – Burgundy
The wines of AF Gros have become known for their beautiful aromas of juicy, ripe black fruits (redcurrants and cherries), earthy aromas and touches of oak. This cuvée is a very accessible style of Pinot Noir, with fresh cherry and red fruit flavors. A very charming Pinot Noir, ideal to drink in its youth.
