MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • vISIT uS AT MORRELLWINE.cOM • cOMPLIMENTARy DELIvERy ON ALL ORDERS OvER $100 IN Ny AND cT 5 Red BuRgundy The gRandesT Of PReMieR cRus G rand Cru Burgundy never comes cheap, nor do the best of the Premier Crus; but with a little research and a guiding hand, an aspiring Burgundy aficionado can find Grand Cru quality at Premier Cru prices and sometimes—even better. It is widely accepted throughout Gevrey-Chambertin, that the Premier Cru, Clos Saint-Jaques, rivals and in some cases surpasses the quality of the surrounding Grands Crus. With the same elevation as Chambertin and similar soil composition of white marl, Clos Saint-Jaques is capable of producing rich and distinctive Burgundy with lush, yet beautifully delineated Pinot fruit. It is unequivocally the Grandest of Premier Crus. Armand Rousseau produces an extraordinary Clos Saint- Jaques, as does Fourrier, with price tags to match. However, a little insider fact is that the house of Louis Jadot is one of only five producers with holdings in Clos Saint-Jaques, and the resulting wine is magnificent. Oh, and at a fraction of the price. ✦ Louis Jadot Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Clos St Jacques 2012 $194 per bottle "The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques is utterly magnificent..." AG 93-95 (1306105) a TiMeless cORTOn A great Corton requires patience, often leaving us with an angular and herbaceous impression in its youth. Yet the rewards for our patience is Burgundy of generosity, and that silky, ethereal ripe Pinot fruit we all crave. The Faiveley monopole within Corton, Clos Des Cortons Faiveley, provides us with a remarkable expression of this timeless Grand Cru. Domaine Faiveley is one of the most consistent producers of quality Burgundy in the region, with control over all aspects of their production, from hand selection in the vineyard to bottling at the domaine. These are rich, focused wines of impeccable balance. ✦ Domaine Faiveley Corton Clos des Cortons Grand Cru 2011 $195 per bottle "...Impressed for its pure energ y and tension...vibrant and impeccably delineated..." AG 95 (130939) Morrell Gift CArds Morrell Gift Cards are a great way to let your friends choose their favorites among thousands of the world's fnest wines and spirits.
