Domaine Decelle-Villa, Nuits-Saint-Georges

2016 Burgundy En Primeur

We are delighted to present our third vintage selection from Domaine Decelle-Villa, which is making remarkable wines from their own six hectares of Burgundy vineyards, with sometimes grapes sourced from other growers. They were established in 2010, in a restored 1880 winery – now immaculate – with underground cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges. This is the brain-child of two wine-lovers from outside Burgundy: Olivier Decelle (Domaine Mas Amiel) and Pierre-Jean Villa (Condrieu). They engaged talented wine-maker Jean Lupatelli, who brought 15 years of Burgundian wine-making experience to the adventure. What is Jean’s philosophy? we asked. He replied: “Pick with our own team. Be very careful on the picking dates, and delicate on the extractions. Let the wines run by gravity into barrels – where there will be a maximum of 40-50% new oak for the famous appellations, and 30% for village level wines.” We are offering a wider, deeper range than last year, because productions of several 2016 wines were reduced by frost damage, so allocations are very slim. Do not hesitate to try the unfamiliar: these wines are of outstanding quality!
