This 6th generation estate started by Louis Forget, planted their first vineyards in the beginning of the 19th Century while the brand was established in 1920. It then became known as Forget-Brimont in 1978. Pinot Noir reigns supreme in this area. This wine is made from primarily Estate fruit from those Premier Cru vineyards but they also purchase some fruit from other Premier Cru growers and Grand Cru growers in order to make small quantities of Grand Cru Champagne. A true artisanal grower/producer with enough vineyards to supply year round continuity of Brut NV Premier Cru.

Canon la Chapelle


Canon la Chapelle 2018: 70% Merlot + 30% Cabernet Franc. The vineyards for this small family owned estate are located in the commune of Fronsac. The location is called “La Côte Canon” which is the name of a site of an old stronghold from the time of Charlemagne. The site was a privileged place to defend Aquitaine from foreign invasions. Cannons prevented the passage of enemy boats on the Dorgogne. The estate covers 10 hectares of high plateau and clay-limestone slopes with excellent southern sun exposure.

Deep garnet in color, the nose is filled with blackberry, candied raspberry, sweet spice and a hint of truffle. The palate is round and velvety. The finish is earthy & fruity with pleasant notes of cocoa, cherry and spices.

VoerzioMartini Barolo 2012 - 93 points WS Feb 2018.jpg


La Serra Barolo 2017


94 points - Wine Spectator

“Vanilla and baking spice notes mesh nicely with cherry and raspberry fruit in this suave, detailed Barolo, which is vibrant and solidly built, with plenty of fruit to match the broad, dense structure. Earthy and minerally on the finish, with fine length.”

Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Mehringer Alte Reben 2020


93 points - James Suckling

“The attractive, delicate mandarin-orange and freshly chopped-herb nose gently draws you into this finely etched, medium-bodied dry Riesling that shows very satisfying interplay of fruit and minerality, the moderate acidity more than enough to drive the long, herbal finish.”
