Cathiard, Sylvain 2002 Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts
Sylvain Cathiard's fanbase has always vastly outstripped the amount of wine produced. With just over four hectares in Chambolle, Vosne and Nuits Saint Georges, Cathiard has been making beautifully opulent wines since taking over the estate from his father in 1995. They are firmly in the mold of Henri Jayer, always destemmed and aged in upwards of 50% new oak. However, the quality of the vineyards and the careful vineyard work produce fruit that handles the wood effortlessly. Today his son Sebastien is firmly in charge and the wines remain some of the best in their various appellations. The opportunity to try one of these from a truly great vintage such as '02 is extremely rare and should not be missed.
Fourrier 2016 Vosnee Romanée Aux Réas Vieille Vigne
In the past ten or so years, the wines of Jean-Marie Fourrier have gone from one of the best-kept secrets in Burgundy to one of the best-known quantities. These are wines of almost heartbreaking delicacy, brimming with fragile pure red fruit and spice. The viticulture here is first rate and the use of new oak is fabulously restrained, notable in a village where it is often applied lavishly. "Aux Réas" sits just south of the village of Vosne Romanée itself, adjacent to the 1er Cru "Clos des Réas." In an appellation that produces perhaps the most coveted and expensive wines in the region, this is an astonishing value.
Fourrier 2017 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
In the past ten or so years, the wines of Jean-Marie Fourrier have gone from one of the best-kept secrets in Burgundy to one of the best-known quantities. These are wines of almost heartbreaking delicacy, brimming with fragile pure red fruit and spice. The viticulture here is first rate and the use of new oak is fabulously restrained, notable in a village where it is often applied lavishly. The Gevrey Chambertin "Vieilles Vignes" is sourced from three parcels, largely planted between 1955 and 1928. Year in and out, this is one of the best village-level wines made anywhere.
Lafarge 1997 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes
At this point, there is little less that can or needs to be said about Domaine Michel Lafarge. It is one of the truly classic estates of Burgundy, making what many consider the benchmark wines of Volnay. Though the wines can be firm, even hard, in their youth. However, with age they can be devastatingly beautiful. Here is your chance to try one that is ready to drink!
Lafon 1998 Volnay 1er Cru Santenots du Milieu
Soft and ripe and rich and unctuous and really ripe tannins — this is what I like about 1998's. There is "mouthweight" and super-ripeness creating a kind of "slurpability"!? There is a word in French — "Gouleyant"
