2015 Domaine Bart Bourgogne Rouge

SKU #1306381

One of our most popular and value-oriented imports from Burgundy is Domaine Bart, a family operation in Marsannay that has been a staff secret for more than a decade. The wines are good in practically any vintage, but the 2015 releases are truly remarkable. Loaded with raspberries and brambly fruit, but again with a zesty acidity and firmness from the tannins on the finish, we expect our customers to be as excited about these new arrivals as our colleagues!

*Barrel Notes* All the Domaine Bart wines were tasted on our annual buy trip from barrel in March 2017. Lots of easy-drinking red cherry fruit. Bright, zippy and fresh with great energy and lift. A great blend of multiple Marsannay fruit sources.
Top Value!

I am totally enthralled with what is coming from the 2015 vintage from the Burgundian producers {much as I was with the 1999s} in terms of the incredible high quality. And this enthusiasm extends all the way down to their declassified productions of 'Bourgogne Rouge,' as with this beauty from Domaine Bart. I had this Gem alongside their villages production of Marsannay Rouge, and, if I had them blindly, I do not believe that I would be able to tell the difference, which hints at the fact that it is probably declassified Marsannay and more than likely the lower part of the hillside vineyard{s}. Deeply colored, the nose is loaded with distinctive aromas of dried rose petals, ripe raspberries and cherries, and cassis with background notes of forest floor and underbrush. Rich, broad, viscous, yet well-balanced and nicely integrated completely across the fleshy, complex, elegant palate impression, this gorgeous, deeply flavored Gem drinks well right now, but, as with most exceptionally well made wines, it will age and improve for another five to ten years. The finish is long, lingering, and creamy. Rusty has asked me to bring home several cases of this Gem for our enjoyment over the next five-plus years.

A delicious and approachable bargain from a fantastic vintage. This has bright hard candy aromas of raspy cherry and raspberry fruit, smoke and tar in an upfront and bright style.

What a super great entry point into the ripe fruited 2015 vintage! On the nose, you get a huge whiff of raspberry and black cherry notes. The palate is bright and firm with black fruit and a touch of spice and earth with a silky tannin finish. Give this a few big swirls in the glass to get it started, and you are good to go. Recommended!

The 2015 Domaine Bart wines are truly exciting wines. The Bourgogne Rouge has aromas of sweet herbs, earth, spice and red fruits, which are followed by a round, silky texture and long finish. The ripe fruit from the vintage really shine in this Pinot Noir value!

Ever since I've worked at K&L, Domaine Bart has been the most anticipated arrival each year from our Burgundian direct imports. The wines are classic in style, dependable in quality, well priced, and easy to love. These 2015s are the best Barts I've tasted since 2005, and they're going to be a huge success. The standard Bougogne Rouge is much more powerful than previous vintages with loads of ripe cherry fruit. Plan on buying a case of this if you can.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
