Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Ramonet!

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

We have just received our 2009 Domaine Ramonet wines, and as always with this fabled grower, supplies are limited, so they will not be around for long, so I wanted to let you all know.

2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Rouge $23.99


2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Aligoté $24.99


2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Blanc $29.99

Lovely and balanced Chardonnay from a master of the grape. This entry-level white Burgundy is an amazing value and it shows minerality, citrus fruit and rich length in equal measure. A distinct pleasure to purchase and to drink!
