“I like the balance and transparency”
2016 Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge

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.

Jouan, The Smart Buy:
2018 Jouan Morey St. Denis

Jouan produces an outstanding lineup of wines, but we find ourselves reaching most often for his village-level wines.

Red Burgundy Masterpieces:
2010 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Champans & 2005 Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée

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.

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.

The Beating Heart Of Burgundy:
2018 Jouan Chambolle-Musigny & Gevrey-Chambertin "Aux Echezeaux"

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. 

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

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

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.

Burgundy 1996-2017:
Coche, DRC, Dujac, Mugneret-Gibourg, Lafon, Roulot, Roumier, & More

You'll find everything from La Tâche to Boisson-Vadot's wonderful 2014 Bourgogne Blanc. 

"Fine precision... and admirably well-concentrated " - 2014 Bize Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Vergelesses

Simon-Bize has been a fixture of our offers for over a decade. When it comes to honest and soulful Burgundy, Simon-Bize is one of the first producers that we reach for.

"This is very Gevrey in style with its taut muscularity and it offers very fine quality"
2014 Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin

"This is very Gevrey in style with its taut muscularity and it offers very fine quality" - Burghound

Bulletproof Burgundy Value - Revisited: 2017 Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges Vieilles Vignes

Chevillon’s NSG consistently outperforms its category, and the 2017 vintage transcends an already high bar.

Red Burgundy 1996-2018: Barthod, Dujac, Lafarge, Mugneret-Gibourg, Roumier, Rousseau, & More

There are almost forty red Burgundies on offer ranging from Bourgogne Rouge to Grand Crus. 

Greatness In Clear Focus - Magnum Edition:
2017 Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge Magnums

Chambolle Benchmark: 2017 Barthod Chambolle-Musigny

I've been on a Chambolle kick lately, and frankly, I feel no need to stop. The village makes some of the most beautiful expressions of red Burgundy. Today, I'm happy to offer Barthod's 2017 Chambolle. It's been quite some time since we've been able to offer Barthod, and it feels like a real luxury to be able to offer them today.

2017 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny

Bertheau's are some of the Burgundies that I'm most fond of. They thrive on nuance and understatement. The wines are archetypes of just how graceful and pure Burgundy can be.

Thriving on Grace - Revisited: 2017 Jouan Clos St-Denis

Jouan’s wines are famous for possessing a captivating mixture of perfume and delicacy. 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.

"Lovely stuff." - 2017 Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée

Whenever I see Mugneret-Gibourg's 2017 Vosne-Romanée, I click buy immediately. I'm a huge fan of their Vosne-Romanée, but the 2017 is a very compelling example and utterly delicious.

0.34HA, Uncommon Grace - Lowest Price:
2015 Bertheau Bonnes-Mares

Bertheau's 2015s are absolutely stunning. As always, the Bonnes-Mares represents one of the high points of Bertheau's 2015 lineup. Bertheau's parcel in Bonnes-Mares is 0.34 ha. It's a rare bottle, and that fact is all the more painful because it's a wine that I love.

"In a word, terrific" - Lowest Price:
2016 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs Magnums

"While d'Angerville rarely misses, I was particularly taken with the quality I found here; indeed the word classic would aptly describe their 2016s." We have to agree with Burghound. This is simply a stunning collection of wines.

Burgundy As It Should Be - Revisited:
2017 Jouan Chambolle-Musigny

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

Back-Vintage Grand Cru - 0.23ha:
1996 Drouhin Bonnes-Mares

Drouhin's lineup is dizzying in its breadth. The Bonnes-Mares is one of the greatest, and with a 0.23ha parcel, one of the most elusive.

Eye-Opening Burgundy - Refinement and Value:
2017 Fornerol Côte de Nuits Rouge

It's rare for Burgundies to nail the combination of deliciousness, rigor, and affordability like Fornerol's Côte de Nuits Villages does. The wines are simply shocking in this regard. This is one of the more eye-opening and irresistible everyday Burgundies that I've tasted.
