IN AUTUMN, WE WANT TO DRINK A MORE STRUCTURED WINE, LIKE THOSE PRODUCED IN BURGUNDY. BURGUNDIES OFFER A BIT OF EVERYTHING: SOME ELEGANT, HIGHLY COMPLEX WINES AND OTHERS THAT WE SIMPLY LIKE TO SAVOUR.
Saint-Bris, Domaine Les Temps Perdus 2008, Clotilde Davenne A winemaker who loves a challenge, Clotilde Davenne has produced an elixir that is a pleasure to drink. As expected with Burgundies, there are hints of mineral, white fruits, and lemon, with a lively and well-structured taste that will tantalize your taste buds.
Privately imported: $21.15 per bottle (in cases of 12). roucet.com
Marsannay 2007, Bruno Clair This chardonnay is representative of the appellation. It has a characteristic aroma of fresh butter, hazelnut, and peach and the subtle taste of mandarin with a caramel finish. A wine to share with friends, served with your favourite fish, seafood, and even white meats. An instantaneous pleasure!

Morey Saint-Denis premier cru , Clos des Ormes, 2006 Pascal Marchand A great wine from an appellation that gives me goose bumps. A reminder of the expression ‘an iron hand in a velvet glove,’ this complex pinot noir has a concentrated aroma of cherries and hints of wild game. This vin de repas should be decanted before serving or stored for a few years.

Saint-Romain Domaine Taupenot – Merme 2008 From a little-known appellation, this wine will complement your meal with brio! Virginie Taupenot makes very structured vins de garde for the most part, that tickle the tongue. With an aroma of cherries and violets, this Merme is a wonderful accompaniment to small game.
