2017 Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche
Lignier's Clos de la Roche is often mentioned in the same breath as the appellation's other benchmarks - Ponsot, Dujac, and Leroy.
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.
Catching d'Angerville's Champans in the right vintage is an extraordinary experience.
Last weekend, we offered the amazing 2010 Champans. Today, I'm happy to offer the 2008, another personal favorite vintage of Champans. These are the only bottles available in the country.
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.
This is a blatantly idiosyncratic coupling of Burgundies. The only reasoning is that these are two Burgundies that I love to drink.
They offer purity, incredible finesse, and structures that will allow them to age wonderfully and develop the haunting nuance that makes Burgundy so special.
I'll keep this quick. Coche-Dury's wines possess a singular magic that's obvious.
They are intense, incredibly refined, and are insanely well balanced. The wines offer up an improbable combination of depth, verve, and power.
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.
It's clear that Olivier Lamy is at the top of his game.
Every time that I taste one of Lamy's wines, what's in my glass is thoroughly exciting. They are grandly sculpted wines with eye-opening rigor.
I don't get to offer Mugnier very often, and this is the first time that I've been able to offer Mugnier's Chambolle.
Mugnier is one of Burgundy's elite. Few producers hit the level of transparency, fineness, and regal elegance that Mugnier does.
We buy every bottle of Fornerol's Côte de Nuits that we can get our hands on.
Very few Burgundies hit a combination of seriousness, drinkability, and affordability the way that Fornerol's Côte de Nuits Rouge does. It simply nails it.
As we said a couple of weeks ago, Dauvissat nailed the 2018 vintage.
Dauvissat's Vaillons always impresses with its pointed minerality and intensity. The 2018 is an extreme expression of the wine.
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.
I jumped all over this parcel. Génot-Boulanger's 2014s are absolutely stunning.
The wines are a pitch-perfect expression of the vintage, with amazing concentration, clarity, and harmony. The lineup perfectly captures all of the precision and lifted elegance that made 2014 a home run for White Burgs.
Ramonet is one of the time-tested greats of white Burgundy.
Catch a Ramonet in top form, which is usually the case, and you'll find a case study in tension and intensity.
I'm happy to present this wide-ranging list of white Burgundy.
I tried to highlight Burgundy's many top white producers ranging from Dauvissat and Raveneau to Coche, Lafon, and Roulot.
Dauvissat nailed the 2018 vintage.
Vincent Dauvissat compares the vintage to the legendary vintages of 1947 and 1959.
