Finding a sub-$25 red Burgundy that really delivers borders on the impossible.
Today, we're happy to offer what may be our greatest find for value in red Burgundy.
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.
Trousselle is a very small producer working in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune. The appellation is large, but Trouselle’s vineyards are located in a prime valley between St Aubin and St Romain with abundant limestone soils. It's a cooler location that absolutely thrived in the 2019 vintage.
It's been many years since we've seen this level of excitement over a Burgundy vintage than that of what we've encountered with the 2019s. The tidy summary of the 2019 vintage in Burgundy is that it was a ripe one that produced wines that miraculously remained fresh and with vivid terroir imprints. It's easy to imagine the total package being very impressive.
Trousselle is an extremely skilled viticulturist, and he works his vines with painstaking care. He’s also well respected in the region. In fact, he’s currently working with Pierre Boisson of Boisson-Vadot on a project in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune and he will be in charge of all of the farming.
Affordable Burgundy has all but disappeared, but this problem has sparked a renewed interest in Burgundy’s “lesser” regions. Quality producers are popping up in areas like the Hautes Cotes, and thanks in part to changes in the climate, the wines are better than ever. I strongly advise you to take advantage of this offer. I doubt we'll see a Burgundy value this impressive again all year.
