2019 Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir

Bass Phillip was founded by Mr Phillip Jones in 1979 at the age of 32. He told us, years ago, that he had planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the early days because his favourite wine was a classified growth Bordeaux and he wanted to replicate it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, not a single grape was grown. He then decided to replace the Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir and what a fantastic decision he made!

Bass Phillip has been organically farmed since 1993, and biodynamic since 2002. Today, the estate is run by Jean-Marie Fourrier, a very talented Burgundian winemaker that has done an internship with the legendary Henri Jayer. Henri was a French vintner who, it is said, revolutionised Viticulture and winemaking in Burgundy.

 

Why do we like it?

A long story short - the first time I tried a Bass Phillip wine I was extremely impressed with its quality. I clearly remember it was in January of 2015 when working at Vue de monde, a guest ordered a bottle and I had no idea what it was going to taste like, but it was like magic! I truly could have been tasting a premier cru from Burgundy, but three times less expensive.

Another story, it has been my obsession to get the hands on these wines ever since that day in 2015. I approached Mr Phillip Jones with a proposition but with no luck and was turned down. I insisted so much that, finally, we ended up producing a white wine in a partnership with him, and gloriously from there, access to a very, very rare collection of vintages from every label, back to 2002!! Would you believe it??
