2017 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny

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.

A Magical Combination - Value and Refinement:
2018 Fornerol Côte de Nuits - Villages Rouge

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.  

"Punchy and powerful flavors that brim with minerality"
2018 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons

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. 

"This is already excellent and potentially outstanding."
2018 Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

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.

The Stars Align:
2014 Génot-Boulanger Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières

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. 

Profound Grace:
2014 Bertheau Bonnes Mares

Bertheau's 2014 Bonnes Mares is special.

In any vintage, Bertheau's Bonnes Mares is something that I aggressively chase down. With only 0.34ha, it takes a lot of work and yields far too few bottles. 

Saving The Best For Last:
2018 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet

Côte de Léchet has a sleeker and more pointed minerality. It delivers a deeply etched saline minerality and bright cut. 

Burgundy Royalty:
Ramonet 2013-2017

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.

White Burgundy - 1993-2018:
Boisson-Vadot, Coche-Dury, Dauvissat, Lafon, Pillot, Raveneau, Roulot & Much More

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.

"This is a very fine Meursault villages and worth checking out."
2018 Roulot Meursault Villages

"There is a really lovely sense of verve"
2018 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

Dauvissat nailed the 2018 vintage.

Vincent Dauvissat compares the vintage to the legendary vintages of 1947 and 1959. 

A Perennial Overachiever:
2018 Tribut Chablis

When it comes to classic Chablis AC, Tribut is one of the most important names to know.

Tribut's Chablis is, without a doubt, one of the best village level wines in the region.

2017 Drouhin Griotte-Chambertin

Griotte-Chambertin is one of the most beguiling and elegant of Gevrey's Grand Crus.

It is also one of the smallest and most elusive Grand Crus in Burgundy. Just over a handful of producers even make wine in Griotte.

Bulletproof Bourgogne:
2017 Barthod Bourgogne Rouge

Barthod's Rouge is one of the great and time tested examples of the category.

It's a wine that Burgundy buyers stock up on each vintage. 

"Elegant, airy and exceptionally fresh"
2017 Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin VV

Fourrier's Gevrey is a long-standing favorite. The combination of straight-up deliciousness with breeding is hard to resist.

It's a wine that radically transcends its villages category. When you try to think of comparisons, a few wines come to mind - Roumier's Chambolle, Mugneret-Gibourg's Vosne, and then, you start reaching. 

Pillot 2010-2018:
Bourgogone to Chassagne 1er Cru La Romanée

Pillot stands as one of the most exciting and thoughtful winemakers of Burgundy’s new generation.

Pillot’s wines stand out for their unmatched purity and crystalline character.

In The Shadows Of Bonnes Mares:
2017 Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes

Value In Red Burgundy:
2017 Jouan Coteaux Bourguignons

In any vintage, Jouan's Coteaux Bourguignons is a wine that the staff drinks by the caseful. It's hard to argue with its liveliness and irresistible texture...

And of course, it's value.

"This is excellent"
- 2017 Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Porusots

Lafon's 2017 Porusots is epic.

The wine is a finely etched and tension-filled powerhouse.  

Chambolle Brilliance - Lowest Price:
2017 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2016 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

0.36ha, The Pinnacle:
2018 Jouan Clos St-Denis

The Grand Cru Clos Saint-Denis is celebrated for its class, purity, feminine grace, and simultaneously, for its intensity.

It’s a perfect match for Jouan.

Coche-Dury 2007-2017:
From Aligoté to Meursault Perrières

It is extremely rare to see so much Coche on one list.

Coche represents one of the pinnacles of Burgundy. When I use the word epic, it is applied just as much to the Bourgogne and his reds as it is to the dazzling Meursault 1er Cru Perrières.

Burgundy's Greatest Value:
2017 Hudelot-Noellat Bourgogne Rouge

 For Burgundy lovers seeking value, Hudelot-Noëllat’s Bourgogne Rouge is a godsend.

You simply won’t find another bottle in this price range that offers more complexity, finesse, and sheer deliciousness.
