Grand Cru Icon:
2017 Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche Bottles and Magnums

Drouhin's Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche is one of the legendary wines of Burgundy.

Red Burgundy 2002-2018:
Dujac, Fourrier, Lafarge, Mugneret-Gibourg, Rousseau & More

I'll keep this brief. By now, most of you know the deal with these Burgundy lists.

I went through our Burgundy selection and picked our favorites.

Picture-Perfect Fleurie:
2019 Foillard Fleurie

Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon. The fact that he can turn out a Fleurie of such glorious typicity really highlights just how sensitive of a winemaker Foillard is.

Chambolle Without Artifice:
2018 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes

Few producers do purity and transparency better than Bertheau, and I've always loved the Charmes for how it dramatizes these qualities.

Singular Cab Franc:
2016 & 2017 Roches Neuves Saumur-Champigny Clos de l'Echelier

L'Echelier's haunting perfume, lifted brightness, and energetic minerality makes the comparison an apt one. It’s a rendering of Cab Franc unlike any other.

"Off the charts gorgeous"
2017 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte

For Montevertine, 2017 is an extreme vintage. It was a warm year with seriously reduced yields. This is a jam-packed, grandly scaled vintage for Montevertine. Galloni calls the vintage at Montevertine "some of the most viscerally thrilling, breathtaking wines I have ever tasted here, or anywhere, for that matter."

Back Up The Truck 2019 Red Burgundy Edition:
Trousselle Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune En Cre

Since discovering the wines last year, Trousselle has been our go-to producer for everyday red Burgundy. The quality that he turns out for the price is beyond astonishing. 

"A beautiful wine"
Bérèche Campania Remensis Rosé (2016)

Raphaël Bérèche is one of the region's most talented young growers. The Campania Remensis is one of the best places to witness his skill.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2012 Dauvissat Chablis

I rarely get my hands back-vintage Dauvissat AC. Finding the current vintage can border on the impossible.

Winter Progressive Sale - Day One of Two

Sancerre Grand Cru:
2019 Gérard Boulay Sancerre La Côte

La Grande Côte produces Sauvignon Blancs of epic scale and intricate architecture. Boulay produces some of my favorite examples of Sancerre and when he released his first La Côte in 2010, it was clear that this would be an important wine.

"No estate in the entire Rhône Valley making finer wines”
2006 Allemand Cornas Chaillot

Allemand's 2006 Cornas Chaillot is pulsating with energy. There's finely etched, bright red fruits accentuated by flowers, spice, and smoky minerals.

Without Peer:
1990 Château d’Yquem

The multidimensional, layered presentation of d'Yquem is simply stunning. The 1990 highlights this in a strikingly bold way. 

Uncompromisingly Original:
Ulysse Collin Blanc de Blancs Les Pierrières Extra Brut (2015 Base)

Pierrières may be the ideal place to witness Collin's unique style. Its unusual terroir lends a pronounced chalkiness and a lovely, racy finesse to the wine.

Utterly Mesmerizing Mesnil:
2007 Salon Blanc de Blancs

It's long been an insider's Champagne loved for its sleek, kinetic minerality, its heartbreaking elegance, and its evolution in the cellar.

Morgon's Master:
2019 Foillard Morgon Corcelette VV

His sensitive winemaking renders Gamay with incredible clarity and textural appeal. This has earned him a reputation that needs little introduction. 

White Burgundy:
Coche-Dury, Colin-Morey, Dauvissat, Lafon, Roulot & More

It's been four months since I have put together a white Burgundy offering.

I tried to cover as many bases as possible.

Cult Chablis:
2018 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

As many of you know, the 2018 vintage is on the riper side of the spectrum. Just as in 2015, another warm year, Tribut turned out an impressive collection.

Outrageous Champagne Value:
Laherte Frères Brut Ultradition Blanc de Blancs NV

It's an accessible Champagne, but also one of incredible balance and interest. 

Rugged Majesty Revisited:
2017 Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche

Compared to these, Lignier's Clos de la Roche is the most unmediated rendering of the Grand Cru. It's this quality that really wows. It's a wine of class and elegance, without artifice. 

Saving The Best For Last:
2014 Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly Magnums

En Remilly is one of the best sites of Saint-Aubin. It is the go-to site for Burgundy lovers.

"Absolutely Beautiful"
1996 Roagna Barolo La Pira Riserva

The 1996 Riserva is thrilling. While it is showing beautifully right now, it's abundantly clear that the wine's architecture will allow it to age incredibly well. There's a subtlety, nuance, and savory muscle to the wine that harkens back to the Barolos of the 70s.

2018 Dauvissat Chablis

Dauvissat produced an amazing cast of 2018s. They combine power and richness with snap, tension, and Chablisien minerality.
