"This is the finest Clos du Cellier Aux Moines the domaine has produced to date" - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

"The stunning nose of ripe black cherry announces what this concentrated, fresh red Burgundy is all about" - James Suckling

We are thrilled to have our best-selling Burgundy back in stock. We have fielded numerous phone calls, emails and in-store requests asking when the next vintage of the Premier Cru from Cellier Aux Moines would arrive. That time is now and the 2019 is fantastic!

We at Hi-Time sell a LOT of red Burgundy and really enjoy the compelling balance, complexity and delicious drinkability of wine from the most famous Pinot Noir region in the world.

When we first tasted the Premier Cru from Cellier Aux Moines last year, we absolutely loved it. The purity of fruit, silky smooth tannins and persistence made us sit up and take notice. We immediately purchased as much as we could get and enthusiastically recommended it to our Burgundy afficionados.

This wine sold like mad and we ran out of stock several times while we waited for more to arrive.

Earlier this year we met with the winery owner, Philippe Pascal who spoke of his passion for the great wines of Burgundy and the steps he has taken to produce world class Pinot Noir. We tasted through the 2019 line-up including the Clos Cellier Aux Moines bottling and again we were blown away by the quality.

The Pascal family acquired this historic plot and set about farming organically and converting to Biodynamic practices. Their investment also included the construction of a gravity fed cellar to allow for gentler handling of the fruit.

Winemaker Guillaume Marko has worked at Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Arnoux-Lachaux. While we absolutely believe terroir is critically important, it is evident that a skilled winemaker's contribution should not be discounted.

The domaine has a great story to tell and the property has been producing wine since 1130. The 5-hectare vineyard was farmed by Cistercian monks who recognized the quality of the terroir and its favorable southern exposure. The Premier cru "Clos Cellier Aux Moines" is considered the best vineyard in Givry. Specifically, the "Clos" or walled vineyard section where this wine is sourced is the crème de la crème of that vineyard. The clay-limestone geology that is shared by all the great Burgundy vineyards is obviously present here.

The 2019 vintage in Givry was ideal with a sunny and warm Spring and Summer. The grapes achieved perfect ripeness and balance and were harvested by hand. After careful sorting, they were fed by gravity into oak vats with some of the grapes left in whole bunches. Fermentation occurred using only natural yeasts and the wine was aged 16 to 18 months in oak casks (1/3 new oak).

The resulting wine is flat out gorgeous with impressive depth and concentration showcasing red and black cherry as well as blackberry with earth, forest floor, light florals and a touch of spice.

This is a delicious Premier Cru Burgundy available at an incredible price.

JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS - "The stunning nose of ripe black cherry announces what this concentrated, fresh red Burgundy is all about. So much energy, plus a firm yet fine tannin structure and long, mineral finish make a serious statement for this underrated appellation. From biodynamically grown grapes."

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2019 Givry 1er Cru Clos du Cellier Aux Moines unwinds in the glass with aromas of wild berries, petals, orange rind and loamy soil, complemented by deep spice tones. Medium to full-bodied, layered and lively, it's nicely concentrated, with powdery tannins and bright acids. Combining some of the substance of the 2018 with the charm and elegance of the 2017, this is the finest Clos du Cellier Aux Moines the domaine has produced to date."
