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.
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.
Once you adjust to their un-showy wavelength and whispering complexity, it's really easy to become obsessed.
This has become very clear to us. Our Jouan offers have become some of the most popular.
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.
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.
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.
In any vintage, Bachelet's Bourgogne Rouge punches well above its weight class.
In 2017, the Bourgogne Rouge functions at an even higher level. When Burghound writes, it’s “easily of villages level quality" that's spot on.
