2015 White Burgundy - Maison Verget

There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the 2015 vintage in Burgundy and we, in turn, are very excited to bring you these 2015s from Maison Verget. Every vintage we meticulously go through a very large range of wines, cherry picking only the best to offer to you. So for these 2015s, not only have we tasted all the wines being offered today but also, for the first time since Farr Vintners began importing Verget in 1992, we can bring you some of these wines in magnums as well, especially for this excellent vintage (albeit in limited volumes).

In a market where Burgundy prices continue to creep ever upwards, it is extremely refreshing to be able to offer wines of such exceptional quality at such reasonable prices. In fact, there isn’t a single wine in this line up above £200 a case in bond. It is easy to spend four or five times these amounts on other white Burgundies on wines that are nowhere near as good as these.

In buying Verget, not only are you avoiding the high price of other Burgundian producers but you are also avoiding another all-too-common white Burgundy issue – that of oxidation. All of the wines offered today (with the exception of the magnums) are under screwcap, which is a far more practical option for wines that should be enjoyed in their youth.

We also have a few smaller parcels of Verget’s other 2015s, including magnums and jeroboams – click here for a full list.

“Located next to the village of Vergisson with an east-facing exposure. The soil is a clay and limestone mix with stones on the top soil. The vines have an average age of 40 years. The yield is 35 hl/ha this year and was hand harvested. The wine was vinified in oak, of which 20% was new, and the fermentation lasted until late December. It was then raised in barrel for 5 months without batonnage. This wine has a ripe, creamy, peach and pear fruit nose and a touch of sweet vanilla from oak. The palate is oily and concentrated with smoky undertones giving structure to a juicy fruit core. The finish is long, intense and primary.”

“Mineral and flint, white flowers the nose is fresh and fragrant the start of the palate is precise. There is mid sweetness hints of tropical fruits but at the back the mineral flint streak gives freshness the finish has length and persistence. 2017-22.”

“Located near the 1er Cru vineyard "Les Butteaux", these vineyards are South-east facing with very chalky, firm soils. The yield is 40hl/ha. The free run juice was vinified in horizontal stainless steel tanks without battonage. This wine has an expressive flinty, struck-match nose with hints of lemon zest. The palate is fresh, clean and mineral with lemon fruit and green apple. Zesty acidity lifts the finish and leaves a cleansing citrus length.”

“A small section of vines located on the lower hillsides of the 1er Cru "Les Vaillons". The vines are over 50 years old. Yields in 2015 at 25 hl/ha. The free run juice was vinified in old barrels and lasted until late December. They were then raised in concrete tanks on the lees for 7 months. The nose to this wine is incredibly pure with lemon rind, a hint of curd and a real mineral edge. The palate shows fresh lemon character, yet a chalky texture that adds to the body of the wine. There are layers of light cream and flint on the mid palate with a crisp, structural acidity that lifts the long finish. Quintessential Chablis, with a little added power of fruit and texture.”

“In Vergisson with a South-east facing slope, the soils here are shallow and rich in limestone, giving a mineral and rich wine. Vinified in oak, of which 25% was new, followed by an additional 7 months in barrel and a further 3 months in concrete tank on the lees to retain freshness and add body. The Nose on this wine is flinty, smoky and juicy with ripe peach. The palate has superb balance between richness of fruit and lifted acidity. There is an added creamy vanilla character and subtle toasty notes on the finish. This is long, poised and intense.”
