Brocard, Jean-Marc 2021 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

"Sitting to the right of the Grands Crus valley, the Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre is without a doubt the most complete of the Premiers Crus: it concentrates minerality, a floral touch and richness into a great vin de garde… it’s for keeping" says JM Brocard. "An abundance of Chablis character suffuses the pretty, even elegant and quite floral nose that includes notes of mineral reduction, iodine, seaweed and apple. The sleek, intense and utterly delicious middleweight flavors possess fine cut and minerality on the finish. Outstanding" says Burghound...

Brocard, Jean-Marc 2022 Chablis Vieilles Vignes Sainte-Claire

This large estate began conversion to organic and biodynamic farming in 1997. While some parcels are now under Julien's name, the Sainte-Claire vineyard remains in the JM Brocard estate - the 2022 is quite racy and fine for a 2022. Harvest was done early in the morning, fermentation was with native yeasts. "The palate has a fine lick of salinity on the entry. With fine depth, this linear and taut Chablis will appeal to those seeking a more classic style in this warmer vintage. Excellent." Neal Martin Vinous

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Cote Chalonnaise Blanc "Les Amourettes"

The Champs de l'Abbaye "Les Amourettes" is a lovely Chardonnay from limestone terroir in Aluze, next to Mercurey. Notes of ripe yellow apple and pear waft from the glass with juicy tropical fruit and lemon confit on the round palate. Medium to full bodied despite it's lithe 12.5% abv, it would lend itself to fuller white meat, fish dishes and cream sauces such as blanquette de veau, monkfish a l'oseille and roasted pork belly.

Champs de l'Abbaye 2021 Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Nature

The scintillating Champs de l'Abbaye Cremant de Bourgogne is 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, but nature - zero dosage, from organic grapes grown in the Côte Chalonnaise near Mercurey. This is an excellent Champagne-alternative and a great value. Aromas of freshly baked brioche, zesty citrus, and white flowers lift from the glass. The palate is very dry and densely mineral  with flavors of ripe pear, hints of baking spice, and stony acidity. A delicious, food-friendly bottle for any occasion. A Crémant for an aperitif, or with oysters from Brittany...

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Rully Les Cailloux

The Hasard's have a small parcel of 40 year-old vines in Rully on clay and limestone soils. The 2022 is showing stunning elegance in its youth, with seductive aromas of dried apricots, flint, wild honeysuckle and integrated hints of new oak. The palate is charged with flavors of pear, citrus, and quince with an intense mineral-laden acidirty, balancing the lovely ripeness of the 2022 vintage. The finish is long and remarkably stony. Drink now with shell fish, comté cheese, or roast chicken, or hold for 5-10 years for a mature experience.

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2011 Meursault Les Narvaux

The Narvaux vineyard is located above Genevrieres and Porusots; it is a very rocky hillside vineyard, and some sections of it seem to have been blasted from the bare rock. This is another great and accessible village level wine from PYCM, with very intense fruit aromas, good mouthweight and an intense finish — a fantastic bottle. There are many great producers of Narvaux, notably Domaine D'Avenay and Jean Marc Roulot.  Their Meursault Narvaux cost considerably more than that of Pierre Yves Colin Morey. JBT

Dangin, Bruno NV Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut

What a difference 2 kilometers makes! Bruno Dangin's Crémant de Bourgogne is made from 100% Pinot Noir from organically farmed vines in Molesme, located just beneath the southern border of Champagne's Aube.The limestone rich soils are the same as those of their pricier neighbor to the north.  Boasting a fine bead and soft mousse and aromas of red fruits and autolyse, one would be hard pressed to spot the difference. The palate offers great depth, pure pinot fruit, and a suave, layered, persistent finish. This is a great value in bubbles and will grace the holiday table nicely. John McIlwain

Domaine de l'Enclos 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

From a parcel of 40 year-old vines, this is lovely, satisfying Chablis, with ripe yellow fruit in the attack and mid-palate and forceful minerality in the finish. This has more cut and brightness than the very good 2020, with lovely citrus and orchard fruits. This is delicious now but is also a good candidate for mid-term aging (the 2016, backward upon release, grew into a beautiful swan with five years in the bottle).

Domaine de l'Enclos 2022 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu

From .75 hectares of organically farmed vines dating from 1995 high on the hillside on the western end of the climat (per Jasper Morris). Fermented in wood with native yeasts without batonnage and bottled with minimal sulfur. The ripe and vibrant 2022 Mont de Milieu is perfumed , yellow-fruited, generous, and pretty on the nose. There's a dynamic interplay between the ripe citrus and stone fruit flavors and the snappy oyster shell saltiness on the brisk, energetic palate with a long, lingering succulent finish. Terrific now,  but certainly a good candidate for mid-term aging

Guillemot-Michel 2019 Viré-Clessé Une Bulle (Magnum)

The Guillemot-Michel "Une Bulle" comes from a tiny parcel of old vine Chardonnay on limestone with red clay, high in iron. The wine is a Pet-Nat (Methode Ancestrale) that is bottled after a short period of fermentation, leaving enough sugar in the wine for the fermentation to continue and create the desired bubbles. The wine is aged in bottle on the lees for around 18 months, then riddled and disgorged and re-bottled with a bit more "Une Bulle."  The result is a very delicious aged Pet-Nat showing honeyed aromas of pear and white peach with hints of almond, marzipan and brioche. On the palate the mousse is soft and creamy with flavors of peach and quince  with lime-flower and minerals and a long finish of white fruits, citrus peel and firm acidity. This is a delightful wine to sip by itself or pair with mild cheeses, patés and terrines, fruit desserts..  David Lillie

Guillemot-Michel NV Vin de France Le Feu et La Glace

Our friends at Guillemot-Michel lost most of their 2021 harvest to frost, but they were able to buy organic Chardonnay and Gamay from friends to make this rather vivacious sparkling wine Le Feu et La Glace (Fire and Ice). The wine shows a lovely bright pink color and fresh aromas of cherry and raspberry fruit, blood orange and spice. The palate is fresh and bright with a firm bead an sappy red currant and cherry fruit with a hint of sweetness over the refreshing acidity. Quite delicious and perfect for a party, especially with charcuterie and cheeses.

Perrin, Céline 2022 Bourgogne Aligoté

The Perrin Bourgogne Aligoté comes from vines that are over 80 years-old, thus a bit more dense and full-bodied than most Aligotés. This is an Aligoté that will reward patience and a decant. Tight and compact upon opening, this blossomed with air, yielding fresh lemon, daffodil and crisp yellow apple all swirling around a profoundly mineral core. I was shocked how stony this wine felt at the four hour mark. Quite serious and fine, especially for the price. "An aperitif wine par excellence, it becomes the famous Kir when combined with crème de cassis. It goes perfectly with grilled fish and goat cheeses. More simply, it goes well with salads, tabbouleh, steamed vegetables. It is also a faithful companion to Burgundy gougères, snails and of course jambon persillé."

Perrin, Céline 2022 Bourgogne Blanc

The Céline Perrin Bourgogne Blanc hails from the thin stony soils of Ladoix. The wine show s a very pale gold color and subtle aromas of apple, pear, dried herbs (mint) and a bit of oak. The palate is lean and dense showing the limestone terroir, with a rather strong saline minerality with white fruit and citrus flavors, finishing bone-dry with stone and citrus in the long finish. Not a fruit-bomb, serve this glass of earth with grilled or broiled fish - decant or open in advance if possible.

Perrin, Céline 2022 Ladoix "Sur les Vris"

The Perrin Ladoix "Sur les Vris" is an east-facing slope in the north part of Ladoix abutting ancient quarries and just below the 1er Cru "Les Grechons." The wine shows a gold or light straw color, with aromas of ripe white and yellow fruits, with earth, citrus and floral notes and a touch of oak. The palate has nice weight and density with pear and peach fruit balanced by firm acids and mineral flavors with a touch spice and bitter lemon in the long finish. "It is a wine whose breadth and weight are balanced by its lovely freshness," say the Perrins. Please decant or open in advance if drinking now, best 2025 - 2030. It is very suitable as an aperitif, but also with salads, soups, fish, white meats. For cheeses, white Ladoix goes very well with blue, goat’s cheese, Gruyères…

Perrin, Céline 2022 Ladoix 1er Cru "Les Gréchons"

The Perrin Ladoix 1er Cru "Les Grechons" is just to the northeast of the Grand Cru Corton-Mourottes. The slope is covered with limestone scree and pebbles - tailings from ancient limestone quarries. There is so little white Ladoix kicking around, I had no reference point. But this was lovely, showing white peach and lime curd, with some spiciness and toasted almond notes. Good mineral density in the finish here, this is good now but will benefit from a few years in the cellar. This wine will be perfect with the most delicate dishes such as pan-fried foie gras, scallops...

Perrin, Céline 2022 Meursault "Sous la Velle"

The Céline Perrin 2022 Meursault "Sous la Velle" is from a large parcel just south of the village, giving wines that tend to be quite round and full-bodied, ideal for drinking young. This is by no means flabby or fat though, with balanced acidity and a mineral streak that brings some of the toasty, subtly creamy characteristics into focus. A pale gold in the glass, there are aromas of fresh orchard and citrus fruit with some delicate white flowers and toasted almonds, with a texture that seems to melt on the tongue. The palate is surprisingly tensile with  a mineral core, wood tannins and flavors of apples and citrus. It strikes a great balance between freshness and richness, delicious now but with potential to evolve nicely over the next few years. A phenomenal value for Meursault!

Rateau 2022 Beaune Clos des Mariages Blanc

Located toward the bottom of the slope beneath Beaune Grèves and adjacent to Les Cents Vignes, Clos des Mariages is a mix of young and very old vines planted in clay and limestone soils. The lovely 2022 Blanc shows high-toned aromas of lime-flower, melon, pear, wet stone and honeysuckle. The palate is light and silky with pear, apple and citrus flavors with chalky minerals and herbal notes in the refreshing finish. Superb in 2022, the wine combines lush, lovely fruit with bright acidity and a real mineral presence. Delicious now, but in 5 - 10 years it will be quite special.  David Lillie

About a kilometer or two northwest of the Beaune 1er Crus, La Grande Chatelaine is a cooler site with soils comprised of clay over limestone. The 2022 Clos de la Grande Chatelain is 90% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Blanc and Pinot Beurot. This is a great vintage for the Grande Chatelaine - it's classy and elegant wine with fresh cool-toned aromatics of white flowers,  nectarine, rainwater,  and pear skin. The medium-bodied palate is a little warmer toned offering flavors of nectarine, white peach, and crushed herb with a fairly savory finish. Beautiful wine, and a very elegant pairing with any elegant seafood or white meat preparation.

The palate is rounder and more ripe than usual, but perfectly balanced with pear, citrus and stone flavors and terrific length. The antithesis of fat, oaky Chardonnays, this food friendly wine will accompany everything from oysters and grilled seafood to roast chicken and mild cheeses. Delicious now or cellar for 5 to 8 years. This is a real Chardonnay of terroir and a great value!  David Lillie

Texier (Vignenvie) 2022 Vin de France Calico

(Arrives Wed 2/21) Texier "Vignenvie" Calico comes from a one hectare parcel in Charnay co-planted with Muscat d’Alexandrie, Muscat Petit Grain, Muscat Ottonnel, Chasselas Blanc, Chasselas Gris and Pinot Gris. The Vignenvie project is quite unique: many inhabitants of the small village of Charnay work this land together as a community. Eric Texier then vinifies the wines and redistributes it to the workers. The work is heavily inspired by the agricultural philosophy of Masanobu Fukuoka. The 2022 offers a lovely combination of floral and stone fruit notes, suggesting the aromatic varieties with lychee and white flowers, but also subtle tangerine and citrus fruits. On the palate, the acidity is lively but balanced and not too sharp, with white apricot and fresh stones. The finish brings everything together and adds fresh-cut herbs and orchard fruit notes. A jovial and thirst-quenching wine with life-affirming energy! Seems like Eric hasn't given up on making no sulfur wines, at least he's really good at it! 30 minutes open and it's just getting better....

Vignes du Maynes 2020 Vin de France Maxceration of Chardonnay

Max has been an integral part of the Vignes du Maynes team for many years now. His rustic red beard can be spotted from many meters away, and his jovial air matches or at least comes very close to the level of the indefatigable Julian Guillot. First gracing the label of Megamix, a co-ferment of red and white grapes that was on the shelf last year (and will likely return later this year), Max's newest cameo is on the label for this skin contact wine, one of the first (if not THE first) to be released from the estate. Our assumption is that this was all Max's idea, and it does not seem like photoshop was used for this label, which shows Max fully reclined in a vat of grapes. Julien tells us that "the presence of beard hair does not alter its a quality in any way." All Chardonnay, with 13 days of maceration, and 22 months aging in foudre, this is a flavorful and aromatically intriguing skin contact ("orange") wine. Notes of lemon meringue, apple sauce and quince on the nose, and subtle orchard fruit on the palate. The wine has just arrived, which may explain why it is currently not a two-day wine (i.e. we recommend drinking it within 2-3 hours of opening). Whether or not it gains some stability after the voyage, at 10.5% it would be hard not to down the bottle in one sitting with a few friends.

Vignes du Maynes 2021 Mâcon-Cruzille Les Chassagnes 1.5L

The Vignes du Mayne "Les Chassagnes" is from massale-slection Chardonnay.  The walled vineyard (clos) was abandoned around 1880 after the phylloxera epidemic,  replanted  in 2005. The virgin soil is rich with humus from the forest that had grown on it. The very thin layer of soil (15 to 30 cm) is clay-limestone. The colluvial deposits of clay loam covering a layer of very calcareous and siliceous weathered limestone give the wines their minerality. Yield 20 hl/ha / Organic and biodynamic farming. Harvested by hand with no sorting because it is unnecessary / 12 hours of crushing and skin maceration before pressing / Fermentation in 600L demi-muids using natural yeasts, no SO2 / Matured on lees for 11 months without racking / Bottled in September with or without SO2 depending on the batches.

Vignes du Maynes 2022 Macon-Cruzille Au Quin Chateau

100% Chardonnay from young vines, certified Biodynamic, planted in on a parcel with 40% incline in Martailly-lès-Brancion (just north of Cruzille) on white marl and blue marl terroirs, similar to the soils of the Jura, while Cruzille is usually known for its limestone soils. Manual harvest, direct pressing, 8 months of aging in barrels, racking, bottled without fining or filtration. Like all of the whites from Vignes du Mayne, lees aging helps to give subtle roundness to the wine, while the mineral rich soils provide freshness and balance. Though suitable for aging over the next 3 years, this is in some ways the younger sibling to Les Chassagnes and Aragonite, and is in a lovely place for immediate drinking.

The palate is dense and supple with vibrant white fruit, stone and almond flavors, finishing with citrus and minerals. This is a young wine that will benefit from aeration if drinking now, and will cellar for ten years. (Approx 30 mg/l  SO2.)

From a 1.5 hectare parcel of 50+ year-old massale selection vines on clay/limestone soils rich in iron, in this excellent 1er Cru vineyard at the foot of the slope in Beaune. The vines "have their feet in the limestone" bringing a lovely chalky texture to the ripe fruit. The wine shows a bright red/garnet color with very pretty high-toned aromas of cherry, raspberry and violets with hints of licorice, earth and spice. Ripe red raspberry/strawberry on the palate, dense and sapid, but not heavy, earth and minerals emerge in beautiful balance, finishing with terrific length of lush fruit, earth and bright acidity. 13% alcohol. Best 2028 - 2038 but delicious now served a bit cool. This is a very elegant Chouacheux and a baargain at Burgundy prices these days...

The old vines did their job in 2021, bringing lovely earthy and floral cherry/raspberry aromas. The palate is surprisingly round and ripe in this cool vintage - this is showing beautifully as a young wine but of course 3 to 5 years of cellaring will open it further, enjoy until 2035+.

Chantal Lescure 2021 Pommard Les Vaumuriens

The Chantal Lescure Pommard "Les Vaumuriens" is from a steep northeast facing slope abutting Volnay, just above "Les Rugiens." The vines are 45 - 50 years old, grown on very rocky soils of brown limestone over limestone marl and hard limestone giving very earthy wines very marked by the terroir. I've aways found wines from "Les Vaumuriens" to be a bit difficult and unyielding, but in this era of riper fruit and higher alcohol, the beautiful terroir expression from this site seems more intriguing and food friendly. The 2021 shows a bright red/black color with very pretty high-toned black cherry/blackberry/cranberry aromas with stone and licorice. There is a beautiful intensity of black fruits, earth and minerals on the palate which is dense and sapid but very fresh. Fantastic length of fruit and terroir flavors. Delicious now in its youthful intensity, best to wait a few years then appreciate the interesting food pairngs, energy and maturity "racinaires" of this wine. David Lillie

Chantal Lescure 2021 Pommard Les Vignots

The Pommard "Les Vignots" is from south-facing vines situated on the Montagne de Pommard, in a terroir of clay-marl. These 35 year-old vines grow in high elevation, about 330 meters above sea-level. (The name stems from a parcel of vines remaining on this site that survived a desvastating insect attack that destroyed much of the Burgundy vineyard in the 1700s) The grapes are hand harvested and undergo a long fermentation in stainless steel tanks, punched-down and vatted for 18-25 days. The 2021 shows a bright red/garnet color and complex, very pretty aromas of ripe strawberry, and black raspberry with earth and spice notes. The palate is round, earthy and nicely textured with elegant black raspberry, plum and black cherry, ripe and round and balanced with earthy minerality. The finish is long and sappy, with firm acidity. This is soft enough to drink well young but will come together nicely with a few years in the cellar. Lovely wine!  David Lillie

The wine shows a relatively light red/garnet color with bright aromas of black cherry, raspberry, violet and earth, subtle and very pretty. Darker fruit, spice and earth notes emege on the palate which is dense but not at all heavy, wrapped in firm mineral flavors and well-structured but supple tannins, with terrific length. 13% alcohol.

Perrin, Céline 2021 Aloxe-Corton "Les Boutières"

The Perrin Aloxe-Corton "Les Boutieres" is from a parcel at the southern tip of Aloxe-Corton, bordering Chorey and Savigny-les-Beaune. The name refers to an ancient road that continued up though Savigny and Pernand-Vergelesses used by mule-drivers carrying "boutes' - goat-skins filled with wine, (sometimes from Etruria and Campania (!) as early as the 2nd century BC). One of the best known village level Aloxe sites, these vines are planted in quite deep clay soils full of iron oxide (red mud that sticks to your shoes). This is a classic Boutieres, with vivid red fruit and a meaty salty character somewhat obscured at present by vigorous tannic structure. The color is quite dark, deep ruby, garnet, it has aromas of small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, cherry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). Its accents intensify with air: jams and fruits in brandy, pistachio, prunes, truffle, cinnamon. It's by no means unapproachable but 4-6 years in the cellar will bring everything into high definition. Serve with red meats, grilled or in sauce, roasted poultry, game, without forgetting soft and washed-rind cheeses: Epoisses, Ami du Chambertin, Livarot...

Perrin, Céline 2022 Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Celine Perrin's 2022 Bourgogne Rouge is a delightful wine showing a bright red/garnet color with floral high-toned cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas. From 70 year-old Pinot Noir vines in and around Ladoix. There is sappy cherry fruit on the palate with plum skin, citrus, earth and mineral flavors that continue in the refreshing finish. This is a remarkable value - a beautiful, refreshing light-bodied Pinot Noir with gorgeous fruit, purity and length! "Serve with rather moderately aromatic dishes, such as roast veal, meat pies, poultry, stew and even certain fish. For cheeses, we will choose these according to their not very intense aromas..."

Perrin, Céline 2022 Ladoix "Les Briquottes"

The Perrin Ladoix "Briquottes" is from another part of the quarries that used to cover this slope, just below the 1er Cru "Les Grechons" - the stone was cut into "briques" that were wrapped in paper and put between the bed covers in the winter. Beautiful garnet color with purplish reflections. On the nose, the bouquet opens with floral, bright red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant) and jam. On the palate, we find all the finesse of the fruits with silky tannins and a round chalky texture with a bit of citrus, finishing with firm acidity and sappy berry fruits. The 2022 shows an extra layer of ripeness but is "fresh, super food-friendly and ready for action" says Eben. This red Ladoix will go well with beef, poultry and game birds, served a bit cool. Delicious now, drink until 2030.

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes

Jean-Claude Rateau has a large parcel in the 1er Cru Les Bressandes on a steep slope facing east with pebbly clay/limestone soils, conducted in biodynamic farming since 1979. The soil is warm and well-drained giving ripe, structured wines. There is a 21-day cuvaison with manual cap-punching followed by 18 months in old barrels. Tasted in January of 2020 in the cellar, the 2018 Bressandes showed a deep black/red color and intense aromas of blackberry  and ripe black cherry, dense and pure. The palate was elegant and deep with black fruits, bitter chocolate, earth and mineral notes, very, very long and with great finishing acidity. Really a vibrant and beautiful Bressandes which should be fun to drink in it's youthful exuberance, or hold and enjoy until 2040. David Lillie

Rateau 2020 Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes

Jean-Claude Rateau has a large parcel in the 1er Cru Les Bressandes on a steep slope facing east with pebbly clay/limestone soils, conducted in biodynamic farming since 1979. The soil is warm and well-drained giving ripe, structured wines. There is a 21-day cuvaison with manual cap-punching followed by 18 months in old barrels. The 2020 is a superb wine that will age beautifully. The aromas are deep and complex with black fruits, earth, violets and spice. The palate is ripe and intense, elegant and beautifully balanced with red and black fruits, earth and saline mineral flavors. "Precise" is the word that came to mind, a great expression of this terroir, showing a bit more like a Grèves or Teurons in this vintage. Certainly interesting to taste now but best after five years of cellaring, and for many years after that. A great Burgundy for the cellar at a reasonable price!  David Lillie

Rateau 2022 Beaune Clos des Mariages

Located toward the bottom of the slope beneath Beaune Grèves and adjacent to Les Cents Vignes, Clos des Mariages is a mix of young and very old vines planted in clay and brown limestone soils. "This fertile soil gives wines that are open and joyous, with delicate spice notes, giving great pleasure in their youth and capable of long-term aging." (J-C Rateau) Indeed the 2022 Clos des Mariages seems a bit fuller than the 2020 and 2021 but showing lovely brightness and balance, really a superb wine with gorgeous aromas, showing a bright mélange of black cherry, strawberry, red currant and raspberry with hints of spice, citrus, licorice and violet. The palate is very elegant showing dense, chalky fruit, sappy and ripe but with firm acidity and mineral flavors that continue in the very long, juicy finish. This is absolutely delicious now and should drink well continuously over the next ten to fifteen years. Beautiful wine! David Lillie

Rateau 2022 Beaune "Les Beaux et Bons"

Jean-Claude says this wine, sourced from lieux-dits Beaux Fougets (clay soils) and Bons Feuvres (iron-rich soils) on the Pommard side of Beaune, always shows aromas of "cerises noires" (black cherries).  The 2022 has a bright red/garnet robe. The nose is super-pretty with pure, very floral aromas with notes of violet, black cherry and ripe black raspberry. The palate is beautifully textured, chalky and sapid, with red and black fruits (there's that black cherry!) but with lovely lightness and balance with savory herbal notes, and a brooding earthiness beneath the ripe, exuberant fruit. This showed a bit lighter than the "Mariages" and "Prevoles" but in a delightful and elegant way  - give this a bit of aeration and it will be a very beautiful bottle, served a bit cool, with coq au vin or perhaps braised duck legs. Lovely wine!

Rateau 2022 Beaune 1er Cru Les Reversées

From vines grown in the calcareous clay soils of "Les Reversées" premier cru, toward the bottom of the hill in the center of the slope next to "Les Teurons," and  below "Clos de la Mousse," exposed east and slightly north (hence "reversées" - wrong side of the hill.) Mostly young vines, massale selection from the Clos des Epenaux. The 2022 shows generous black cherry, boysenberry, notes of cherry pit and anise on the nose. Ripe mid-weight palate, lighter than "Bressandes," with ripe black fruits, hints of iodine and iron and other soil beneath supple structure. Succulent acidity and savory mineral notes offset the ripeness and lend energy and drive on a balanced and mineral palate-coating finish.. The purity of fruit and earth notes are finely balanced and this is an excellent Burgundy for the mid-term.

(Was $24.99) A lovely rosé of Pinot Noir from Pierre Bart in Marsannay, the 2022 shows a bit more weight than usual in this very pretty vintage of ripe, forward fruit. Bright pink color. Subtle hints of red currant and strawberry, floral and mineral. The palate shows nice density and a silky texture with sappy berry fruits, blood orange and stone supported by refreshing acidity, finishing with elegant mineral, citrus and strawberry flavors long and quite delicious. Please open this young wine in advance if drinking now, or even put some aside for next year....

Chantal Lescure 2021 Nuits-Saint-Georges

The Chantal Lescure Nuits-Saint-Georges village wine is assembled from three parcels on the Vosne-Romanée side ("Les Creux Friaiches Eaux," in the combe above "Aux Thoreys;"  "les Tuyaux" and "les Herbues" at the foot of the slope next to Vosne-Romanée "Aux Raviolles"). Due to the small yields in 2021 the "les Damodes" parcel above the 1er Cru was also included in the village wine. This showed beautifully in January 2023, with fresh, complex, very bright, floral red fruit aromas with earth and spice, really pretty. The palate is perfectly balanced with classic earthy cherry/raspberry fruit with firm acidity and minerals in the long finish. Gorgeous wine.

Chantal Lescure 2021 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vallerots

"Les Vallerots" 1er Cru is a near monopoly of Chantal Lescure on a steep slope in the combe above "Vaucrains" on very shallow stony soils over the limestone at 260m altitude. Less exposure to sun but protection from wind gives good ripeness to the grapes. Aged in approx 30% new oak by Francis Miquel. The nose is initially closed and tight with bright red fruit aromas emerging with notes of black raspberry, plum, cherry pit and a hint of anise. The palate shows very fine dense red fruits with great elegance and energy, with intense mineral flavors from the shallow soils in this ancient quarry -  a superb combination of fruit and terroir. This will need a long decant if drinking now, best to hold 3 - 5 years then enjoy until 2035+ David Lillie

Magnien, Stephane 2022 Coteaux Bourguignons Pur Pinot Noir

"Top Value" review from Burghound (1/24) The 2022 "Pur Pinot Noir" is a beautiful Bourgogne Rouge produced by the talented Stephane Magnien at his small estate in Morey-Saint-Denis, from two small parcels in the lieu-dit "Gué" below the village, one planted in 1960 the other in 2009, aging for 10 months in large barrels and cuve inox, bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2022 shows a bright deep red color and exuberant aromas of ripe strawberry, red currant and cherry - lush, earthy, meaty and floral. The palate is dense with vibrant black cherry and black raspberry fruit lifted by bright acidity, sappy and long. Give this some time open if drinking now, or a year or two in the cellar. This is a classic Bourgogne rouge to enjoy over the next five years, at a quite reasonable price - grab a case or two for real Pinot Noir pleasure  - don't delay!  David Lillie

The Perrin Hautes-Cotes de Nuits is from vines in and around Ladoix, including the "Clos des Fourches," a tiny parcel above Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Clos de la Marechale."  The 2022 shows a bright red/garnet color and a pretty melange of earth, cherry, violet, raspberry, licorice and citrus in the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with nice density of sapid cherry and berry fruits that is backed with bright firm acidity and mineral flavors, remaining light on its feet at 12.5% alcohol. Opening the day before, or a few years in the cellar ae advised, serve cool and enjoy this delightful wine!

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Cote Chalonnaise "Gardes RéMi"

The 2022 "Les Gardes Rémi" is a new wine for Les Champs de l'Abbaye, coming from a parcel of 70 year-old Pinot Noir vines in the Côte Chalonnaise.  "Beautiful freshness and aromatic expression" says winemaker Alain Hasard. It's definitely bursting with punchy red fruit and some oak spice on the nose, with a broad palate and enough weight to hold up to a variety of dishes while retaining ample acidity and refined tannins. It comes even more into focus after an hour or so open, and should continue to evolve nicely over the next five years.

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Cote Chalonnaise Les Claveaux

The 2022 Côtes Chalonnaise "les Claveaux" is a lovely new cuvée from Alain and Isabelle Hasard at Les Champs de l'Abbaye. Made from young vines of Pinot Fin, from three diffeent massale selections, with 10% Chardonnay. The wine is delicate and delicious and should be served a bit cool. The aromas are vivid and very pretty - tart black cherry, black raspberry, citrus, coffee and violet. The palate is light and refreshing, but quite ripe, velvety and sapid in 2022 with cherry and berry fruits and hints of citrus, spice and earth. Serve with chicken and white meats and save some for grilled foods next summer. Just delicious... "Concentrated, with delicate floral nuances, a bit more structure than in previous years. Lots of immediate charm and great potential" says Alain Hasard.

Champs de l'Abbaye 2022 Mercurey Les Marcoeurs

From .75 hectares in the lieu-dit "Les Marceours" adjacent to Clos Myglands on the eastern edge of the village. The vines range from 20-45 years old and are grown in mixed limestone debris and ferruginous soils. Stylish Mercurey, showing the ripenes of the 2022 vintage, with an array of wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry liqueur, earth and mineral aromas upon the nose, quite dense but elegant and bright. Medium-bodied, with ripe concentrated, sappy red fruits and dark earth tones and hints of spice in the mouth; there is oak present, but it integrates nicely into the  very long, succulent, sappy and stony finish, with great freshness and length. Lovely now, should improve over the next five to eight years. This is an excellent value in Red Burgundy and a loely wine!

Vignes du Maynes 2022 Bourgogne Cuvée Auguste

The Vignes du Maynes "Cuvée Auguste" is a superb Burgundy made from massale selection Pinot Fin planted in 1964. The parcel, high on the slope in Cruzille, is on Bathonian limestone with a great deal of calcium carbonate crystal (aragonite) with thin topsoils of clay and silica. Yields of 20 hl/ha, semi-carbonic fermentation, with zero additives, bottled under nitrogen. 2022 is a superb vintage for the Cuvée Auguste with a bit of extra density due to the warm, dry conditions of the vintage. The wine shows elegant aromas of black raspberry and wild strawberry with hints of blood orange, violet and brown spice - really lovely. The palate shows a beautiful melange of blackberry, strawberry and tart cherry with citrus, earth and minerals, very sappy and dense. Elegant finish of earth, stone and red fruits. This is a gorgeous wine, and quite delicious now, but cellaring of ten years or more will create somethng quite special. Tasted,in March 2021, the 2009 Auguste was showing a firm garnet/red color with aromas of rose, tea, wild strawberry and cherry with earth, stone, citrus zest and spice. The palate was chalky and sapid with beautiful plum, cherry, rose and violet, earth, chalk and citrus flavors, elegant. silky and very long. Drink now or hold another 10 - 15 years. Congratulations to Julien Guillot for this beautiful Pinot!

Vignes du Maynes 2022 Mâcon-Cruzille Manganite

Made from Gamay Petit Grains planted in 1953, grown on a limestone parcel high in magnesium, in the Clos des Vignes du Maynes in Cruzille, organic since 900 AD (!), now certified biodynamic. The energetic Julien Guillot vinifies his reds without sulfur or additives of any kind, producing complex, mineral, elegant wines that transcend their appellation.  The 2022s here are lovely, showing the elegance, purity and balance typical of the estate with the wonderful ripeness of the vintage, with generally a bit less alcohol than in the similarly ripe 2020s. The wine shows gorgeous red and black fruit aromas with cranberry, earth, stone and musk and hints of mint, chocolate and spice. The palate is bright and silky with raspberry/strawberry fruit, citrus, stone and earthy flavors, that continue on the very long mineral finish. Always one of the greatest Gamays produced anywhere, the 2022 Manganite is a young wine that will benefit from decanting or five to fifteen years in the cellar. Highly recommended! DL
