    Winemaker Notes

    Pommard yields robust, deeply colored wines. Their strong aromatic intensity is expressed with notes of musk, blackcurrant, blackberry and sustained by a fleshy texture. When aged, Pommard wines release savory earthy and animal notes.

    Uliz, France
    To say that Antoine Petitprez is committed to natural handmade wine is putting it mildly. During his education he was responsible for a research program on the moons effects on wines and vines. He created an association with the likes of Meo Camuzet, Domaine JJ Confuron, Alain Meunier, Liger Bel Air, Bruno Clavelier, and Domaine Dujac to repeat experimentations in the vineyards and in the cellar. He’s part of a new generation in Burgundy, taking the best of tradition, soil, and winemaking to tell a story of where the wines were made.

    Antoine consults for growers in organic farming, and in return they agree to sell him grapes. This has given him the opportunity to aquire great fruit contracts with his growers, working with them on their vineyard practices all the way through to harvest. His philosophy is to “express the terroir and respect the vintage”.

    The first vintage of Uliz was 2008, which produced 1,200 cases from small lots of old vine fruit, all of which were organically or biodynamically farmed. Before beginning Uliz, he worked first in Chablis, then Domaine Malivoire in Canada, Domaine de L’Arlot in Nuits St Georges in Burgundy, and a vintage at Turley Wine Cellars in California. He sells 85% of his wine in France, of which 50% is sold to 1 & 2 star Michelin restaurants.

    The Uliz labels reflect a more modern two-part statement. First, Antoine’s thumb print, which evokes the French saying, “la patte de l’homme….du vinificateur sur le vin,” which means the identity of the person translated in the wine. The second part concentrates on details like parcelle name, vintage, appellation, harvesting, vine age, and winemaking philosophy.

    Red Wine

    Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

    Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

    Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
