A Burgundy A-List Grab Bag

Share

The holidays are fast approachins and it's time to start thinking about those special bottles to give as gifts to the wine-obsessed lunatic in your life (as a wine-obsessed lunatic, this is something I understand). And there are few things most of them will appreciate more than a bottle of top-class Burgundy in either color. To facilitate this, we are offering a little mixed assortment of new releases from a couple of truly Great producers!

 

Dominique Lafon (Courtesy of Grand Cru Selections)

Dominique Lafon: The Lafon name is synonymous with the village of Meursault. The family has been growing wine there since the 1870s and were one of the pioneers of estate-bottled wines in the first half of the twentieth century. Dominique has been at the helm of the family estate since 1987. He converted to biodynamic farming in 1998 and today is making arguably the best wines the domaine has ever made.

Jean-Philippe Fichet: Fichet is a real favorite among the Chambers Street staff. He is well-known in Burgundy for keeping the cleanest cellar in the region and is near-obsessive about quality management, He even goes as far as to keep a journal where he documents every bottle he opens, noting in detail the condition of both the wine and the cork. Over time this allows him to make educated decisions about the corks he uses to protect his wines, which are brimming with tension and intensity.

Both of these titans have been on a roll in recent years and the wines available today should satisfy any Burgundy fiend, no matter the price point. In addition, we also have a case of the consistently excellent Bourgogne Blanc from Bernard Moreau. Act fast. What you see is what we have!
