Burgundy

Burgundy

Welcome to one of the most historic wine regions in the world, a province of eastern France that is famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of other grapes are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) This is complicated and exciting territory - the hallowed ground where more than a few bonafide wine geeks end up. View our selection...

This is a charming Chardonnay from a small grower in the Mâcon. Lionel Rhedon-Marin is a recent graduate of the College of Viticulture in the nearby village of Davaye, where Guffens trained. All of their young-vine fruit is sold in bulk to one of the better negociants, who is pleased to have it, since Lionel is such a careful grower. But their old-vine fruit, all over 45 years of age, is kept for the Domaine's wine, which is tantalizing and elegant. Our staff raved: "Every vintage the Domaine des Niales wine is one of my favorites from the Maconnais." Be...

2017 Alain Corcia Bourgogne Rouge
Top Pick!
Alain Corcia founded his négociant company back in 1983. Originally focused on bottling Burgundy, they expanded their grower relationships to include wines from the Rhône, Bordeaux and even Champagne. Our relationship with Alain goes back over three decades, and he and his wife Patricia have supplied us with some of our greatest values from their respective regions. As a négociant, Mr. Corcia is very hands-on with the wines, making each one in its home region and choosing not to blend across appellations, all the better to reflect each wine's true terroi...

2017 Domaine Bart Marsannay Rouge "Les Echezots"
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Firm reduction masks the underlying fruit today. Otherwise there is good punch and lovely detail to the more mineral-inflected flavors that aren't especially complex but they are quite refreshing and the finish is well-balanced. We'll see if it can add more depth but again, this is very pretty and well crafted." (01/2019)
Price: $29.99

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A classic Meursault nose of hazelnut, white peach and soft pear aromas gives way to fresh, vibrant and energetic middle weight flavors that culminate in a lingering if mildly bitter finish. My note assumes that the bitterness will quickly dissipate as I suspect that it's sulfur-related." (01/2011) Wine Spectator: "Loosely knit, featuring baked apple and grapefruit flavors with a touch of spice. This is rich, just lacks focus, ending with echoes of apple and spice. Drink now through 2014. (BS)" (02/2012)

2015 Jean Claude Poisson Bourgogne Blanc
Top Pick!
Writing in Vinous, Stephen Tanzer reported: "The very warm, dry growing season of 2015 yielded Burgundy’s fleshiest, most opulent white wines since at least 2009. The 2015 whites are clean, pure and rich, favoring ripe orchard and soft citrus fruits over minerality, as is typical of very warm, sunny years." (09/2016) This blanc by Jean Claude is a solid, everyday white Burgundy that captures the essence of the vintage.

2017 Domaine Bart "Les Finottes" Marsannay Rouge
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Soft wood sets off earthy and humus-suffused aromas of forest floor and dark berry fruit. There is good freshness and vitality to the delicious flavors that possess reasonable depth and persistence. This is light but pretty and should drink well young." (01/2019)

2017 Chateau de la Maltroye Bourgogne Blanc
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A smoky nose reveals notes of straw, ripe pear and plenty of petrol influence. There is both good vibrancy and solid volume to the delicious and focused flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and crisp finish that is quite refreshing. This nicely complex offer should drink well early and with a few years of bottle age on it. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (06/2019)

Jancis Robinson: "Easy-drinking, medium body. Apple fruit, a touch of salinity adds some interest on the finish. Smooth texture with a snappy finish.

2017 Jacques Bavard Bourgogne Blanc
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows writes: "Jacques Bavard is a former Paris restaurateur and a fifth generation Puligny winemaker. He lives in the old stone house of his grandfather on the Grand Rue. However, he is not farming his family vines but has become a micro-négoce working closely with several growers. Bavard prefers early picking since he believes Burgundy needs nervous energy to better display its terroir. He works with a mix of conventionally-sized barrels (and with 350 liter barrels) with the goal of obtaining more volume on the mid-palate but with less wood inf...

Château de la Charrière is one of our most popular direct import producers and a label that easily represents the best bang for your buck we carry in Burgundy. Formerly run by Yves Girardin, the business is now run by his young son Benoit, who definitely has modernized the winemaking a bit since his first vintage in 2011. Whereas the wines were a bit funky and rustic previously, the past few vintages are much cleaner; showcasing the pureness of the Pinot Noir by de-stemming completely so as to remove tannic structure.

2014 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Mouchère"
Back In Stock!
95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is sufficiently reduced that it presently masks the fruit and if you're tempted to try a bottle in its youth I would strongly advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is outstanding density to the focused and powerful middle weight plus flavors that stain the palate with dry extract that also helps to buffer the intensely mineral-driven finale that just goes on for minutes. This is flat out brilliant though note that it will not be an early drinker. In sum, this is a genuine 'wow' wine. *Outstanding*" (06/2016...

2017 Château Vitallis St. Veran "A La Cote"
Top Pick!
Vitallis is a new "hidden gem" our buyers found in the Mâcon, where small producers fly under the radar. In classic Burgundian fashion, the Dutron family has been growing vines since 1835, and now owns some of the oldest and best parcels in the village of Fuissé in the Pouilly-Fuissé district. In the glass, the wines live up to the hype.

90 points Decanter: "The Louis Bouillot ‘Perle’ series is exceptionally well-crafted for its price and all of the wines are recommendable. I’ve picked out the Rosé Perle d’Aurore, though, as rosé is something of a Bouillot speciality (over a million bottles are produced every year) and it’s a wine which isn’t shy about its burgundian identity. 'We want,' says Marcel Combes, 'vinosity above all, almost a touch of tannin, with what you could almost call a compote style of fruit.' Autumn red fruits are there on the nose, but in a soft and understated sty...

2016 Jacques Bavard Auxey-Duresses Rouge
Top Pick!
Maison Jacques Bavard is a tiny negociant producer in Puligny-Montrachet. He comes from a long line of winegrowers, and is dedicated to working with organic and biodynamic growers. We found him a few years ago on a tip, and found the purity of his wines to be most impressive. Thanks to importing his wines directly, we have them available at a very modest price.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from 56-year-old vines and fermented and aged in barrel, the 2017 Meursault Perrières 1er Cru is a gem in the lineup and certainly delivers the goods. Offering a vivid bouquet of white flowers and stone and citrus fruits, beautiful wet stone and flinty minerality, and some salty seaside notes, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, racy yet integrated acidity, and a crisp, lengthy finish. It’s a brilliant, perfectly balanced Meursault that almost has a Chassagne-Montrachet-like purity and elegance. " (04/2019) 95...

Domaine Bart is a wine estate in Marsannay in the northern Côte de Nuits in Burgundy, chiefly producing red wines from the Pinot Noir grape variety. Pierre Bart represents the sixth generation of the family to run the estate. There are 22 hectares (54 acres) of estate vineyards, mostly in Marsannay, making nine different single-vineyard Pinot Noir wines.

Jean-Michel Giboulot took over the family business in 1982 and has put together one of the best bang-for-your-buck portfolios in all of Burgundy over the last three-plus decades. His wines are known as great values out of Burgundy's Savigny-lès-Beaune appellation, and both the reds and whites are equally strong. Giboulet's wines straddle the line between traditional and modern, with reds that have crunchier fruit and fine tannins, but plenty of ripeness and pureness of fruit.

Juicy, dry and classic, conveying noteworthy inner-mouth lift and harmonious acidity. As in so many past vintages, this should turn out to be an excellent village wine.

2017 Domaine Dupre Bourgogne Rouge
Top Pick!
The family farm was created in the 1950's. At the time, it was more focused on mixed farming, raising livestock, and working a few parcels of vines (approximately 3 hectares). By the late 1980's, it had gradually switched to viticulture. Jean-Christophe Dupre joined the business in 1990, followed by Vincent Dupre in 1994. By then the estate had grown to around a dozen hectares. Winery note: "The Domaine's red wines show a beautiful complexity and a distinct character. The low-yielding vines create wines 'that must be left to come', according to Hervé Gu...

Neal Martin writes: "Located in the heart of the village of Puligny is Domaine Pernot-Belicard, a less well-known producer perhaps, though their premises are certainly impressive. The internet seems undecided on whether it is “Belicart” or “Belicard”, though it should be the latter and without hyphen.

William Kelley writes: "One of my favorite insider domaines in Burgundy, Domaine Jean et Gilles Lafouge produces a range of impressively consistent and compelling wines from some 10 hectares spread across the appellations of Auxey-Duresses, Meursault and Pommard.

The first traces of Dubois Vignerons appear around 1600 with the birth of Emiland Dubois. It is the first ancestor, and winemaker, found in official records. More recently, Louis Dubois (1874 - 1947) became the owner of his first parcel of vines in 1898, then developed the estate with 2 hectares of vines in the villages of Premeaux-Prissey and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Robert (1910 - 2004), his son, dedicates his life to the vineyards of the estate and continues to expand the area by acquiring his first parcel of Nuits 1er Cru in 1961. Régis Dubois (1943),...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Faiveley's 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Noir reveals a lovely bouquet of ripe cherries, grilled meats and woodsmoke, framed by a light touch of reduction that rapidly dissipates in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with juicy acids and youthfully chewy structuring tannins. It's a hearty, successful effort in a vintage that didn't always lend itself to generic Bourgogne, which tended to be hit hard by frost.

According to the winery, the grapes are harvested and sorted by hand and the proportion of de-stemmed grapes and whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are pumped over twice daily and after fermenting for 15 to 19 days the free-run wine is run off using a gravity system. The wines are aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, (10% of which are new oak) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast.

John Gilman: "The Lafouge family’s 2017 Bourgogne rouge is a very good example, offering up a bright bouquet of cherries, quince, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke and a gentle topnote of roses.

While magnificently long, this stunning Ducster is completely shut down at present and it would be a vinous crime to open one at this very early point in its development as the '05 is built for the very long haul, indeed 20 years may be too soon.
