Large format bottles are great for big dinner gatherings to create some excitement and a pragmatic choice for easy sharing. With Christmas and New Year's celebrations just around the corner, we reckon this would be a fabulous choice - a Nuits St Georges from a perfect year of 2009, at only HK$750 per magnum before end of this week.
An old family who has started making wines in Vosne-Romanee since 1840, Domaine Forey Pere et Fils had been well-established in earlier years and with a slight downturn before Régis Forey took charge in 1987 and started to acquire some nice parcels in Echezeaux as well as Vosne-Romanee Les Gaudichots 1er Cru. Nowadays, Domaine Forey Pere et Fils owns about 4.5 hectares of vineyard, extending over Nuits St Georges, Vosne-Romanee as well as Vougeot and Morey St Denis. This is a serious and old domaine that you could bet on, having considered 2009 as an excellent vintage in Burgundy, this is absolutely a steal -

The 2009 Nuits St. Georges is a powerful, focused wine. Clean saline notes frame the dark fruit nicely on the focused finish. This is a touch firmer than the Vosne, and almost as impressive. The vineyards are in Premeaux-Prissey. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020.
