2016 Burgundy Star - Limited Allocation - 01/18/2018 - Red Burgundy

Neal Martin went crazy for Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot’s 2016, calling it one of the best visits of the vintage among 100+ producers. We went on to further note that it was one of the biggest surprises with this under-the-radar producer crafting some of the great wines of the vintage. 2016s will be hard to find, but those that succeeded on this level are not to be missed and are well worth the effort to track them down. Check out the praise on the writeups and you won’t want to hesitate on securing what’s available at this early stage.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Morey St. Denis (Pre-Arrival) ($49.99)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis Village comes from three parcels that total around 0.70-hectare. It has a very seductive bouquet with raspberry preserve and subtle blueberry notes, detailed and feminine, practically premier cru in complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine crunchy tannins that frame the bright and vivid red fruit. It is the very precise finish that confirms this as premier cru in all but name. What an outstanding village cru. This comes highly recommended. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know. Its a bit of a mouthful. Writing this I keep having to check the correct spelling. It was the surprise package of over 100 visits tasting 2016s. It was the visit that sent tingles down my spine. It was the visit where I had to maintain my Lady Gaga-approved poker face in order to disguise the thrill.(NM)" (12/2017)

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Chambolle Musigny (Pre-Arrival) ($59.99)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Village comes from two parcels that Thomas told me were only slightly touched by the frost, and it matured in one-third new oak. It has a crisp, well-defined and very natural bouquet that unfolds gracefully in the glass with vibrant red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy tannin and tightly knit red fruit. Maybe it misses a little weight toward the back end due to the difficulties in the appellation and the frost, but I admire the transparency here. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Gevrey Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) ($59.99)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Villages also comes from three vineyards and is matured in one-third new oak. This has an impressive bouquet like the Morey-Saint-Denis, with delineated red berry fruit and fine mineralité considering this is only a village cru. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and well-judged acidity, dipping a little toward the finish but still equipped with fine detail and precision. Excellent, albeit maybe earlier drinking than the Morey-Saint-Denis. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know. Its a bit of a mouthful.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Vosne Romanee (Pre-Arrival) ($59.99)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Village comes from three vineyards covering 1.5 hectares and sees one-third new oak. It has a fragrant bouquet with ebullient strawberry and raspberry fruit entwined with cold stone aromas and discrete sous-bois aromas. The palate has a little more substance than its fellow village crus even if it does not quite deliver the same finesse as the Morey-Saint-Denis or the Gevrey-Chambertin. Still, I appreciate the deft spicy note that sustains the finish. (NM)" (12/2017)

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Vosne Romanee 1er Cru (Pre-Arrival) - -6 available ($99.99)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru is a blend of two-thirds Les Beaumonts and one-third declassified vines in the lower part of Echézeaux, which is actually a single block traversing the two lieux-dits. The vines here are between 75 and 80 years old. It has a very clean and precise bouquet with shimmering red cherry and strawberry fruits that are exquisitely detailed. You can really feel the Beaumonts contribution here. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, perfectly judged acidity and just the right amount of tension to keep this premier cru on its tiptoes. Outstanding.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) - 5 available ($139.99)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru comes from 1.16 hectares of vines spread over two lieux-dits and matured in 60% new oak. The oldest vines here were planted in the 1920s and 1930s. This had a touch of reduction on the nose, but even so, it did not quite have the same intensity as the Echézeaux, at least at the moment. The palate is actually where its at: very fine tannin, the new oak a little more vocal here compared to the other grand crus, but there is substantial depth and intoxicating purity toward the slightly candied finish. Give this 5 or 6 years at least. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know. Its a bit of a mouthful. Writing this I keep having to check the correct spelling.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) - 8 available ($139.99)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from a 0.65-hectare parcel next to those of Anne Gros. Matured in 50% new oak, it has quite a healthy, deep ruby color. The bouquet had just a little reduction, but underneath there is plenty of tightly knit blackberry, cranberry and redcurrant fruit, chalk and light incense aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, vibrant red and black fruit with just a faint licorice edge, not enormously long in the mouth but it fans out with style. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle, and you will have a great Clos de Vougeot on your hands. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know. Its a bit of a mouthful.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) - 0 available ($149.99)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Mazoyères, a 0.35-hectare parcel of vines just under 50 years old, and matured in 50% new oak. It has a seductive bouquet with ample dark cherry, bergamot and crushed strawberry scents that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red berry fruit and a fine bead of acidity, quite elegant and maybe less opulent than your typical Charmes-Chambertin, but what fantastic length. The manner in which it fans out on the finish is just glorious. This is one of the outstanding Charmes-Chambertins of the vintage. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know.

2016 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Echezeaux Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) - -17 available ($149.99)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from 1.33 hectares of vines including Les Treux, which Thomas normally bottles as a separate cuvée. Matured in 50% new oak, it offers vibrant brambly red and black fruit on the nose, beautifully delineated with the oak seamlessly embroidered into the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a little spicier than its peers but extremely well focused and conveying outstanding texture on the finish. This is simply one of the best Echézeauxs that I have tasted in this vintage. Coquard Loison Fleurot is your new favorite domaine. I know, I know. Its a bit of a mouthful.
