Angelini Wine, Ltd. is thrilled to welcome Domaine Dublère as our first line of French Wines.  It was about three years ago that Julius Angelini toured the famed region of Burgundy France and became well acquainted with the illustrious burgundy wines.  Burgandy wines are known to be the best wines in the world (and often the most expensive).  We offer you a rare opportunity to add the Domaine Dublère burgundies to your wine portfolio, see below for more information.

photo_blairDomaine Dublère is a small estate located in Savigny France where winemaker Blair Pethel transformed a modest shed into a state of the art winery.  Blair, an American, found his passion to become a winemaker in the late 1980s upon visiting the Bugundy region.  Since then, in 2003 he and his family permanently moved to France and began making wine in 2004.  He has studied viticulture and oenology at the famous Lycée Viticole of Beaune.  Blair has apprenticed with several top winemakers including, Patrice Rion in Premeaux-Prissey and Jean-Marc Pillot in Chassagne-Montrachet- where he carefully learned to work both the vines and wines.


We are thrilled to present the following wines…

Domaine Dublère 2010 Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Les Vergelesses  – Chardonnay, suggested retail $47.99

This wine is sometimes gold with emerald highlights, sometimes pale straw color. Its nose is flowery and light-hearted. Its bouquet frequently evokes butter and brioche with notes of lemon, grapefruit, and occasionally a touch of minerality. A lively attack helps to make this a clean, straightforward wine — quite fleshy, persistent, and occasionally with a touch of spice.

Domaine Dublère 2010 Savigny Les Beaune Les Planchots du Nord- Pinot Noir, suggested retail $36.99

The red is a deep cherry color with garnet highlights. It boasts a bouquet of small red and black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and flowers (violet). The body is ample and discreetly tannic and the fruit remains present. Frequently one will find an elegant hint of Morello cherry. Roundness, volume, power and balance are all here, and in just the right proportions.

Domaine Dublère 2010 Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds – Pinot Noir, suggested retail $63.99

Volnay, admired for its delicacy, its sap, and its bouquet, has always been thought of as the most feminine of burgundies. Though certain of its terroirs modify this judgment with more vigorous and muscular versions, it truly does stand out among the red wines of the Côte de Beaune like the lipstick imprint of a kiss… The color varies from bright ruby to a light garnet. Its aromas are of violet, gooseberry, cherry, and – with age – spices, game and cooked prune. It has an immediate appeal which, added to a slight natural precocity, means it can be fully open while still relatively young. The attack is fresh, the finish is warm.

The critics are quite pleased…

A quote from

“American Blair Pethel is a man of multiple talents. He was an actor, a concert pianist and a journalist before finding his vocation: vigneron. When living in London in the 1980’s he discovered Burgundy (both the wines and the region) which ultimately resulted in Blair attending the Lycée Viticole in Beaune in 2004. Here he was a classmate of David Clark with whom he now shares some equipment.

Blair owns a few vineyards himself, but most of the wines he produces are from bought-in grapes. But he does all the vineyard work himself, even in the vineyards he doesn’t own. Blair is very serious about attention to detail. Not just in the vineyard but also in the winery: he has his own little laboratory to do all the technical analysis, and he filters all the water he uses in the cuverie!

It will come as no surprise that the wines “du Blair” are very well made.”

Allen Meadows, American wine critic and publisher of the quarterly newsletter and website says:

“For those readers who may not be familiar with the Dublère wines, stylistically the wines are ultra-pure with very little makeup; indeed in many cases none is noticeable. Do yourself a favor and try an example or two and you’ll see what I mean.”
