Domaine d'Arduy Burgundy Tasting - After a two year hiatus, we were excited to see the return of Domaine d’Ardhuy to the Fine Wine Reserve's tasting room.
Allen Meadows (Burghound) had this to say about Domaine d'Ardhuy: “Under the now capable direction of Estate Manager, Carel Voorhuis, this producer has decided to get serious about quality. Blessed with superb holdings spread over 42 ha in 35 different crus spread from Puligny to Gevrey, this domaine has the wherewithal to challenge some of Burgundy's best. A new address to watch out for.”
Whitehall Agencies (importer) arrived along with Carel Voorhuis (d’Ardhuy’s Estate Manager and winemaker) for this sit down tutored tasting. It was really a treat to have Carel there to personally present his selection of Premier and Grand Cru level Burgundies. Wines sampled included:
2005 Puligny Montrachet, ‘Sous le Puits’, Premier Cru (BH 91 points)
2006 Corton Charlemagne, Grand Cru (BH 93 points)
Savigny Les Beaune, 'Aux Clous' Premier Cru (WS 90 points & BH 90 points)
2005 'Clos des Langres' Monopole (BH 90 points)
2006 Corton Clos du Roi, Grand Cru (WS 93 points & BH 93 points)
2006 Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru (WS 93 points & BH 94 points)
My d'Ardhuy still needs time in the cellar before its ready to drink... can't wait!
