About The Pack

It's become something of a trope nowadays, however it's truer now than ever: if you want 'value' in Burgundy, you've got to drink Beaujolais.

These six wines demonstrate the excellence of modern-day Beaujolais. These six scintillating Gamays come from all corners of the region and showcase the great terroirs from the finest crus.

Some of Beaujolais' most iconic names are featured here. For the enthusiast or for the novice, this pack is epic.

2018 Jean Foillard Morgon Cote du Py

Jean Foillard is one of the most iconic names in modern day Beaujolais.

His unfettered expressions of the great vineyards of the region have amassed a massive cult-following, both at home and abroad. His wines are considered benchmarks of Beaujolais.

Using traditional practices, Foillard weaves a mesmerising tapestry of texture, clarity and energy through each of his creations. The Côte du Py is his most sought-after cuveé. Very little of it makes it to Australian shores.

This is arguably the most respected winemaker in Beaujolais today, wielding fruit from the most revered vineyard. A formidable combination which year-in, year-out produces majestic wines.

If you want to know what Cru Beaujolais is about, you won't find a better example.

2018 Jean-Paul Thevenet Morgon Tradition

Jean-Paul Thevenet is one of the original - and now legendary - 'Gang of Four', alongside other Beaujolais luminaries: Guy Breton, Jean Foillard and Marcel Lapierre.

A winemaker with a deep respect for tradition, Thevenet farms his old vines with an organic approach, expressing the nuance of his little patch of dirt with as little intervention as possible. Perhaps the most 'old school' of the four, Jean-Paul's wines are pure, expressive and have a rare life to them.

Now, his son Charly has joined him in the cellar since 2008 and the family tradition continues.

Speaking of tradition - this wine showcases the purity, levity, and gravitas of great Cru Beaujolais that will be the tradition of the best producers of the region for many years to come. This is Morgon in full flight - both vividly vibrant and earthily structured. It's a beautiful expression that will continue to evolve for many years to come.

2018 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Morgon Cote du Py

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in Beaujolais, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus. 

Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. Here is his elite Cote de Py from the famous site.

It's his finest cuvee, from an excellent vintage. One of the finest expressions of Morgon from a living legend of the region.

This is a very fine Cru Beaujolais that should be savoured with fine glassware and even finer friends.

2018 Chateau Thivin Cote de Brouilly l’Heronde

Chateau Thivin is one of the the premier producers of Beaujolais.

The Geoffray family have produced wines in the area for six generations. They are been one of the spearheads of the revitalisation of Beaujolais, where traditional winemaking and great vineyards have converged into some of the best value reds in all of Burgundy.

This is one of the family's elite single vineyard Cru examples of the famed Cote de Brouilly.

l’Heronde is made from the best portions of a single site halfway up Mount Brouilly with a southern aspect. The rest of the fruit is declassified into another cuveé allowing this to be the purest expression of this vineyard.

It's a luscious, vivid Beaujolais showing vibrant purple fruits and fantastic crushed-rock tannins. It's delicious now and will cellar a treat.

2018 Pierre Marie Chermette Les Griottes Beaujolais

Pierre-Marie Chermette took over his family vineyards in 1982.

From the very beginning he had a vision to produce a more serious, quasi-Burgundian example of Gamay from his homeland. When bubble-gummy, frivolous Beaujolais was all the rage, Pierre-Marie was making serious wines for the best restaurants in Paris.

He continues his passions and focus to this day.

The Les Griottes is his young vine expression of Gamay. The vines for this cuveé are between 20 - 40 years old. It's produced in a traditional way, with semi-carbonic maceration, however it spends less time on skins than the other cuveés from this producer to preserve freshness and early drinkability.

2018 Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Beaujolais

Daniel Bouland is one of Beaujolais' modern day luminaries.

One of only six producers in the region to have received two stars or better by the revered Le Classement de Revue du Vins de France, his wines have a feverish cult following in France, so much so that allocations bound for Australia get tighter each year.

His wines are staunchly traditional, fermented with 100% whole bunches and then aged in predominantly large, neutral oak. His Morgons are his most sought-after cuveés. They come from vines around 60 years on on the sandy soils, as opposed to the schist-dominant portions of the famous slope.

This is deeply set with fruit yet feels frisky to drink. It's a pure, delicious example of one of the region's great crus.

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
