2019 Domaine Borgeot, Remigny

Borgeot have their fair share of lieu dits and premier cru plots, but for value, their humble village Santenay 'Vieilles Vignes' is outstanding at just £19.18 per bottle on your table, as is the Bourgogne Pinot Noir, from vines in Chassagne, just £14.18 including VAT.  New to our list this year, the Bourgogne Chardonnay 'Clos Carbonnade' is a rare in being both great value and from a single, walled vineyard in Bouzeron.

The style at this domaine is more restrained and earthy than at Bachey-Legros, qualities we enjoy, but the generous fruit of 2019 vintage has made the wines more approachable than ever.   The Chassagne-Montrachets are outstanding value and have surprising finesse and delicate aromas of white flowers.

Offered en primeur, landing late autumn 2021.

Producer Profile

Domaine Borgeot, Remigny

Pascal and Laurent Borgeot are among the hardest working winemakers we know in Burgundy.  Each year, their reds stand out for their value and for their sturdy, structured style.

This is a no-frills domaine, located in the little-known village of Remigny, in between Santenay and Chassagne.  With no appellation of its own, Remigny has an off the beaten track air, which adds to its authenticity.  Pascal and Laurent have the robust character of farmers, with Laurent, in particular, focused on the land and the vines.  

Santenay Rouge is a speciality at the Borgeot's 23-hectare domaine.  The wines from this village are our first port of call for good value but serious Côte-d'Or burgundy, with both Bachey-Legros and Borgeot impressing us enormously.  At the southern end of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay is benefiting from climate change and Borgeot's reds have a ripeness and a concentration in recent vintages which remind us of Côte de Nuits reds, whilst remaining true to their terroir.

Tasting NotesMorello cherries and blackcurrant on the nose with some licquorice aromas, this is a muscular and structured bourgogne from Pascal and Laurent, but there is so much depth of fruit that is almost masks the tannins. Once again this is a benchmark for affordable Cote d'Or Pinot Noir. RKL

Tasting NotesVery intense raspberry and red fruit character on the nose, despite the intensity and concentration on the palate (one might have expected more black fruits). The fruit character here in 2019 is perfumed rather than giving any suggestion of heat or over-ripeness. This is 'on the fruit' a the moment but there is a very good structure behind this, with less rustic tannins and a silkier texture than in cooler vintages. RKL
