Wine of the Year
For my wine of the year, it was imperative for me to choose a top-flight Burgundy for under $100.
These two wines dramatize what makes Lafarge so great.
Clos des Mouches is a very important site for Drouhin.
This prime mid-slope vineyard was one of the first purchases of Maurice Drouhin when he essentially established domaine bottlings in the 1920s.
Genot-Boulanger's 2014s are seriously impressive. It marks the vintage when quality jumped to a profound level.
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been blown away by a bottle of Drouhin’s Clos des Mouches.
It's a confounding wine. It's a 1er Cru from Beaune, an area known for a certain rusticity. Yet Mouches dazzles with its elegance and overall breeding.
We have been beating the drum for Moreau-Naudet for the past five years. Still, the dazzling quality of the 2017s shocked us. This is a break out vintage that places them among the best of Chablis.
Pierre-Yves Colin is one of the masters of white Burgundy; he's right up there with Roulot and Coche. He also has a magic touch with Chassagne, and the Abbaye de Morgeot Clement et Emma is a prime place to witness it.
Drouhin's Chambolle 1er Cru offers a pedigree and class that may be unrivaled for the price.
Chambolle is one of the most beautiful expressions of red Burgundy. For many years, Drouhin's 1er Cru has served as an archetypal Chambolle for me. It's a wine that's simply beguiling.
Lafon's 2017 Porusots is epic.
The wine is a finely etched and tension-filled powerhouse.
Simon-Bize has been a fixture of our offers for over a decade. When it comes to honest and soulful Burgundy, Simon-Bize is one of the first producers that we reach for.
It's been almost five years since we've offered Dujac's 1er Cru. Dujac is one of Burgundy's elite domaines and with each passing year, the wines get harder and harder to come by.
