GIFT SERVICES

If you wish, we can ship your choice of gift in a wooden gift box. Prices range from £ 7.20 for a single bottle box up to £ 14.40 for a six bottle box. If you wish we will include tasting notes and a personal message card at no extra charge. See the full selection of boxes here.

To assure a safe delivery, the bottles inside the box are in bubble wrap bags and the wooden box is packed in a cardboard transit box.

To order a gift-boxed delivery, please first buy the box of your choice. You will have the option to request gift-wrapping and tasting notes, aswell as to enter your message at the point of adding the box to your shopping cart. Then choose the wines to go in the box, add them to your shopping cart, and check out as normal.


CHOOSING A GIFT

Of course the actual choice of gift for a Burgundy lover is far from easy in itself.  If you don't know the recipient's preferences in detail, we would recommend the following as a guide.

In general, most Burgundy lovers would rather have an interesting wine from a good producer than a more prestigious wine from an unknown producer. So don't just pick out the cheapest Grand Cru and hope to impress, but seek out a wine at your budget level from a really good producer. I have added a listing of good and broadly liked producers below if you want some ideas. Or do call us for advice !

As to budget, I would suggest :

- at under £ 40 per bottle, look for a Bourgogne Rouge, or "Villages" level wine from a good producer.

- at £ 40 to £ 80 per bottle, most Burgundy lovers would enjoy a good 1er Cru from Volnay or Vosne-Romanee.

- between £ 80 and £ 150 per bottle then a Grand Cru from a good  producer should be in range - particularly from Gevrey-Chambertin and Clos Vougeot.

- above £ 150 then it really is a matter of personal preference, and we would recommend calling us for advice.

Finally do remember to choose a wine without damaged or stained labels. We carry very few of these, and they are always noted in the product descriptions. If you do order such a product with a gift pack then we will try to contact you to check that you are aware of this, and whether you wish to go ahead


RECOMMENDED PRODUCERS

For white Burgundy in a classic style I would suggest the following producers:
Jacques Carillon
Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey
Saumaize-Michelin
and if price is no object, Coche-Dury, Roulot and Raveneau.

For white Burgundy in a more modern style - so  a little richer and more oaky, then I would turn to
Bernard Moreau, Fontaine-Gagnard or Comtes Lafon.

Good producers of classic red Burgundy would include:
Fourrier
Mugneret-Gibourg
Taupenot-Merme
and, at a price, Dujac or Rousseau.
 
In a more modern style I woud recommend
Heresztyn-Mazzini
Lignier-Michelot
Perrot-Minot
