2021 Jérôme Galeyrand Fixin Le Champs des Charmes

Jérôme Galeyrand is crafting utterly breathtaking red Burgundy.

"This is lovely"
-2021 Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru 5 Climats

Due to the small quantities, Lafarge made the decision to blend his five 1er Cru vineyards into a single wine. This is the first time ever that Lafarge has blended these sites, and this is a long established domaine. 

"This is potentially brilliant and very much worth your interest"
2020 Lafarge Volnay Premier Cru Clos des Chenes

There's something magical and captivating about Lafarge's wines and their understated grace.

Under-the-Radar Lafarge:
2010 Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Sélectionnées

Lafarge is a very special producer for me. I love the entire line-up. With all that said, I have a soft spot for the VS. The wine offers such nuance, depth, and finesse for the price.

The Origin and Apogee of Mosel Pinot Noir:
2022 Stein Pinot Noir “Red Light” & Pinot Noir “Waechter”

Stein’s Pinot Noir “Red Light” has become an iconic bottling; it is a bright, red-fruited arrow, as sharp as the slate on which it is grown. Stein’s top Pinot Noir, the “Waechter,” has all of this energy yet has more breadth and depth.

Dujac Magic:
2010 Dujac Morey-St-Denis

Generally speaking, Dujac's line-up is amazing in how it respects no boundaries. Dujac makes epic Grand Cru red Burgundies, shockingly good whites, and, as today’s offer drives home, village-level wines that box well above their weight class. 

Hitting The Bullseye:
2017 Simon Bize Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses

These are some of the most authentic, thoughtful, and often overlooked wines we know. Bize’s wines are such soulful and long-aging expressions of Burgundy that they are “must-buys.”

Supremely Graceful:
2022 Jouan Chambolle-Musigny

Few producers capture the imagination like Jouan. The wines are some of the most mysterious, beautiful, and subtle Burgundies I know.

Punching Above Its Weight Class:
2015 & 2016 Bachelet Côte de Nuits-Villages

Bachelet’s top-to-bottom quality is staggering. You can taste at any level, from the Aligoté to his epic Charmes-Chambertin, and be thoroughly impressed.

The Swiss Army Knife of Wine:
2022 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir-Rosé

The magic is the brightness and freshness of the nose, which make the wine feel like a rosé, while the depth of fruit and soil transparency leave the impression of a red wine.

One of Burgundy's best village wines: Back-Vintage Edition:
2014 Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée

It's easy to fall for Mugneret-Gibourg's Vosne. Few wines combine a seductive texture with an ultra-fine and elegant precision.

The Master of Nuits-St-Georges:
2010 Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrières

"This is a quality Bonnes-Mares of grace" -2019 Bertheau Bonnes-Mares

Bertheau's 2019 Bonnes-Mares is simply profound.

"In a word, brilliant."
- 2019 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs

Clos des Ducs produces some of the most intense, mineral-driven, and deeply complex examples of red Burgundy.

Sub-$30 Red Burgundy:
2022 Trousselle Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune En Cre

It's rare to find this quality in red Burgundy at this price point, and even rarer for it to happen vintage after vintage.

"This is a quality Chambolle villages and worth a look."
2019 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny

The way that the 2019 vintage dovetails with Bertheau's style is really amazing. The Chambolle is sleek and refined, but it possesses more punch and velvety texture than you typically encounter in the wine. 

A Legend In Top Form:
2017 Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru 'Les Saint Georges'

Les Saint Georges- a combination of stony limestone and clay soils, is renowned for its impressive structure, muscle, and longevity. In Gouges' hands, this site is totally captivating, simultaneously noble and wild.

The Magic of Dujac:
2021 Domaine Dujac Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru

There's an unmistakeable magic to Dujac's wines.

"Very fine." -2022 Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Drouhin's Chambolle 1er Cru offers a pedigree and elegance that may be unrivaled for the price.

"In sum, this is terrific."
Lowest Price: 2019 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

It struts a spellbinding level of refinement and ethereal complexity.

Grace and Understatement - Revisited:
2020 Jouan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

Jouan's Clos Sorbé possesses a haunting mixture of perfume and delicacy.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2020 Fourrier Bourgogne Rouge

The perennial theme with Fourrier is a pristine expression, precise finesse, and an ultra-seductive mineral-laden texture.

"Well worth seeking out"
2019 Chandon de Briailles 1er Cru Île des Vergelesses

Purity, subtlety and elegance are the calling cards of Chandon de Briailles. It's a style that has won this domaine loyal fans for decades. You'll find Chandon de Briailles in the cellars of everyone from wine geeks to blue-chip collectors.

Sweet Spot - Lowest Price
2020 Drouhin Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

Drouhin's Vosne 1er Cru is one of the great values in their vast and formidable lineup.
