Explore Claude Nouveau, Beaune Blanc and more!

Hautes Cotes de Beaune blanc // Domaine Claude Nouveau is an entry level white Burgundy of surprising quality, will debunk many negative opinions about Chardonnay.

Santenay Le Chainey // Domaine Claude Nouveau is a wonderful example of a typically Burgundian expression of Chardonnay: it is full of bright fresh fruit, balanced with a mineral of complexity stemming from the limestone-rich soil, finishing with a sense of richness that is massively satisfying without ever cloying.

This French art deco poster shows three Roman centurions rendered in classic art deco style raising bottles of the advertised product, Camp Romain wine. The colors of the centurions match the wines: red, rosé and white. The poster was done by C. Gadoud and was published by Lucien Serre in Paris in the 1930's.

The apple, grass and lemon flavours, typical of Sauvignon Blanc, are all there. The producer has kept his nerve, and waited until the fruit was properly ripe before picking, thus avoiding the pungent Granny Smith or “cat's pee" flavours found in inferior Sauvignon Blanc. Then, typical of this region, there is a lovely long dry finish, with definite mineral flavours. This is terrific wine-making.
