My Personal Recommendation For You

Domaine Odoul-Coquard Morey-St-Denis "Les Crais Gillon" 2011      Burgundy; France      Reg $59.99      Bttl $54.99      By the case bttl. $49.99


The most expensive red wines in the world are Red Burgundy. The prices wine lovers are willing to pay for quality seems to have no top. Prices just keep getting higher. The wines of Domaine Odoul Coquard rival the best but at a fraction of the price. Burgundy specialist Bill Nanson just came out with his 10 Best Unsung Burgundy Producers and his number three pick is Coquard. These are the houses on the up and prices are about to explode. I have been able to secure just fifteen cases of the 2011 Domaine Odoul Coquard Morey St Denis “Les Crais Gillon” and that is the whole allocation for the US. These wines are made in tiny amounts and at $49.99 a bottle by the case, the wine is a steal. Burgundy has had three short vintages in a row and prices are only going up.

Only Fifteen Cases For The Country

Sébastian Odoul is the latest generation of the family to join the team and he's made a tremendous series of wines. Keep your eyes out for them.” – Bill Nanson (01/07/2014).

I have been espousing the greatness of the spectacular red Burgundy from Domaine Odoul-Coquard. The wines of Domaine Odoul-Coquard are on fire! This tiny estate focuses on some the finest and best-value red wine coming out of the Côte de Nuits and this has all been word of mouth. This house was my biggest discovery on my trip to Burgundy in 2012. The wines are made by Sébastian Odoul, the third generation to make wines at this tiny family Domaine. These were part of the great portfolio of Chateau and Estates, the finest portfolio ever assembled. So if you love red Burgundy, these wines will floor you – I am talking liquid gold. Every time a wine lover tastes these wines they want more. The word is now spreading, just this week on Wine-searcher's News and Features Section, the highly respected Burgundy specialist, Bill Nanson, wrote a blog article on the 10 Best Unsung Burgundy Producers and his number three pick is Domaine Odoul-Coquard. These are Domaines that he recommends you buy. These are the houses on the upand up, ahead of the curve that won't be "undiscovered" for much longer. Imagine buying wines like Henri Jayer or Coche-Dury before fame and fortune and the huge investments they became. I quote Nanson , " The following are my "Top 10 Alternative Domaines: places that are making excellent bottles, and where you can still buy wine."

I can personally tell you that Coquard is oversold and very hard to get. With three short vintages in a row, availability is tight and they’ve lost what amounts to a whole vintage in three years.

The family-owned winery (pictured) is located in Morey-St-Denis village, 15 km (9 miles) south of Dijon, in the prestigious Côte de Nuits of Burgundy.

Reviews:

“The mix of strawberry and mulberry gives richness on the nose and fleshiness to the palate. Under the ripe fruit there is a mix of raspberry and loganberry that refreshes both mid and back palate.” – Derek Smedley, Master of Wine (Oct. 2013).

“Violet on the nose. Lovely rich typical Morey style. For those not too familiar with this key Village perhaps a blend of their neighbors Chambolle-Musigny & Gevrey-Chambertin with a touch more richness and spice. A steal.” The Burgundy Portfolio (Feb. 2013)
