Vinous Easter Treats
When we planned our seasonal photoshoot earlier in the year, none of us predicted that we would all be in lockdown over Easter. Looking at the positives however; we can still eat tasty food and drink delicious wine in our own homes and with some luck, sit in the garden with a few sunny days ahead.
We have added some extremely tempting favourites to our Spring offer. In addition to this, we will hold the March offer prices until the end of April. We very much hope this brightens up what might be a quieter Easter for us all.
Thank you to everyone who have already liked, shared and reposted on our social media channels. We absolutely love seeing the pictures of the wines you have bought from us. Please keep liking and sharing.

Riedel Masterclass with Maximilian Riedel
de Burgh Wine Merchants are delighted to be supporting this event, organised by Wine Events Scotland. It will be an evening that should not be missed.
For the first time in 10 years, we have none other than Riedel’s CEO Maximilian Riedel himself, coming over from Austria to present a Riedel Masterclass at The Balmoral Hotel.
This is promised to be an incredible tasting experience and evening. It’s a unique chance to discover why these different glasses, designed for different styles of wines, have become so popular. A true entertainer and character, Maximilian is 11th generation of the Riedel family to be managing this 264 year old company. He will be speaking about how and why the different shape of glass makes a significant difference to the aroma and taste profile of a wine.
Tickets for the masterclass and the whole experience with Maximilian are £65 for a single ticket or £60 per person if booking as a pair. It is excellent value, given that everyone attending, will receive a set of four of Riedel’s Performance Range. These are worth £90.
…..It is a matter of opinion of course. However, there is no doubt that Pinot Noir can produce some of the most exciting wines in the world.
Many customers question why wine made from Pinot Noir, in particular, is pricier than other varieties. Pinot Noir is notoriously difficult to grow and vinify. In a nutshell it is temperamental, challenging and delicate. It only thrives in specific terroirs creating a narrow range of environments and places that it can be realistically grown. It ripens relatively early, does not respond well to high yields and does not like too much sun – due to its thin skin, which can blister. Too little sun and it will not ripen.
Despite all of these difficulties the characteristics of Pinot Noir are seriously rewarding. Flavours such as ripe red fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, heady sweet spice and gamey, earthy notes can dance from the glass. It can also be wonderfully classy and complex dependent on who makes it, and how it’s aged.To showcase this range of styles and flavours, we have put together a list of fantastic Pinot Noir wines from all over the world. Some are stunningly simple and some carry a huge amount of depth. We love them and know you will too!
Tupinier Bautista, Bourgogne Rouge 2017
was £17.49 NOW £15.75
The Tupinier family have been growing grapes in Mercurey since 1770. Since 1997 the domaine has been run by Manu Bautista who took over the reins from his stepfather Jacques Tupinier. This wine is aged in oak barrels of up to 3 years old. After 10 months of ageing in oak casks, the wine is blended in vats and bottled 2 months later.
The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge is drinking beautifully now with voluptous, fruity, light, round and delicate. On the palate there are hints of floral aroma’s like violets and lots of red and black fruits.
Don’t forget about Tupinier Bautista’s Mercurey wines. We have the Sazenay Blanc and three other Mercurey in stock. They are extremely good and great value to boot! Click here to find out more>>
Meyer Fonne, Vin d’Alsace Pinot Noir, 2018
was £17.75 NOW £15.99
The Domaine was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run by Felix’s great grandson, also Felix. The domaine now covers 12 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. Within this is a great diversity of soil types and exposure which suits different grape varieties and is one of France’s greatest examples of terrior. The domaine is organic in everything but name and the wines really speak for themselves. They all possess a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area. we hugely recommend trying them.
We think the Pinot Noir is absolutely delicious. It has a fine, elegant nose and packed full of red fruit. A fresh finish, full-bodied, and slightly spicy. It is very typically Pinot Noir and readily accompanies cooked meats, grills and white meats.

Beaujolais with a difference
The Beaujolais region of east-central France produces a unique, fruity and often lighter style of wine, which has seen a small renaissance since the mid 2000’s. As wine lovers move away from the intense, high alcohol, barrel-matured wines that have been all the rage of late, the soft, often immediately appealing style of Beaujolais has been in the perfect position to benefit. Beaujolais production is dominated by the Gamay grape and almost half is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation which comes from Bas Beaujolais and the flatter land to the west. A further quarter of production is Beaujolais-Village, which comes from the hillier, northern part of Beaujolais and which pushes up into the foothills of the Massif Central. In this area there are 10 Crus (villages) considered distinctive enough to have their own appellation. From north to south they are: St-Amour, Julienas, Chenas, Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgan, Regine, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly.

We are all very big fans of Jean Paul’s wines here at de Burgh. He challenges all the pre-conceived perceptions about Beaujolais wine. To show how these wines stand up against some of the best Pinot Noirs we have put some of Jean Paul’s wine on offer.
Jean-Paul is a very traditional winemaker who makes food-friendly wines of serious note. There is great complexity and concentration, along with the juicy fruit associated with Beaujolais, in his wines. He achieves this with minimum intervention and steers clear of manipulating the wine via carbon maceration, thermo-vinification and yeast inoculation which have become the norm in Beaujolais. He also believes his wines taste better at lower alcohol levels so does not add extra sugar (chapitalise) to raise alcohol levels.
