Recent Offer: A New Micro-Domaine Just Made Burgundy More Interesting

Domaine Le Puy de L'Ours' 2021 inaugural release is a head turner. Jean Orsini and Juliette Puyperoux released their first four cuvées in 2021 totaling a mere 5000 bottles. Located in the heart of Savigny-lès-Beaune, their vineyards are in their third year of organic certification, and the winemaking is approached with a light hand.

Clos des Godeaux is truly remarkable, displaying unmistakable purity. Its fruity aroma is vivid and fragrant, while its taste is clear and precise, exhibiting a natural yet reflective approach to the winemaking. Clos des Godeaux shows definitive cherry, a dash of spice rack, bright acidity, perfectly textured grainy tannin that float across the palate, a weightlessness not often experienced, and a long floral finish. Although delicate, a mid-palate intensity accentuates the wine's overall seriousness. I am thoroughly enamored with this wine and I look forward to watching the progression of this young couples domaine.
