2018 Roumier Chambolle-Musigny
Every year, I put just as much effort into tracking down Roumier's Chambolle AC as I do his top Grand Crus.
At this point, it's clear that the 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé will go down as one of the absolute greats of all time.
The unfortunate fact is that d’Angerville’s Taillepieds parcel is half the size of their Ducs holdings and a quarter of Champans, making it one of the hardest of d'Angerville's wines to find in quantity.
Fourrier's Gevrey is a long-standing favorite.
The combination of straight-up deliciousness with breeding is hard to resist.
Bachelet’s wines are well known for their elegance and precision and these qualities can be found across the full range of his offerings.
Coche-Dury is world-renowned for his epic white Burgundies. Today, we explore a different side of Coche - his stunning work with Pinot Noir. We need to mention right from the start that the 2015 Coche-Dury Monthelie Rouge is very limited.
A stunning, ancient amphitheater may be producing some of Germany’s most elegant reds. And no one knows anything about this place.
Fourrier's Gevrey is a wine that people jump at the chance to buy.
It exists on a special plane amongst villages bottling. It shares this space with few other bottles - Roumier Chambolle, Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée, etc.
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.
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.
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.
For me, any vintage of Cristal Rosé is one of Champagne's greatest wines. The 2012 is simply brilliant.
It is an utterly beautiful wine delivering finesse, length, and delicacy.
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.
