Created in 2017, this cuvee is issued from grapes in the "Champ-Rond" vineyard, vinified in amphora of 800 liters. The 65 year-old vines are grafted on "Riparia Gloire de Montpellier" an old root-stock obtained in 1880, giving very low yields with magnificent small grapes, of a deep gold color. The Retour a la Terre presents the exotic notes typical of the domaine with an extra dimension of expression due to the respiration of the amphora. The small grapes of "Champ-Rond" ripen beautifully without a high degree of alcohol - they are picked on the last day of the harvest, and the elevage in amphora gives the wine a great purity. The wine shows elegant floral, white fruit, apricot, lemon and stone aromas. The palate is round, dense and silky with fabulous length. This is a superb white Burgundy that is delicious now and will cellar beatifully for fifteen to twenty years. Highly recommended!
Aligoté from rocky soils of clay and limestone, aged in old barrels and concrete eggs. The vines are on average 40 years old. This is very serious Aligoté, saline and delicately aromatic, with fine texture. An example of the next generation of Burgundy growers taking vineyards with potential and realizing it by treating it with respect.
From a small piece of Morgeot, close to the upper limit of the hillside where it turns to forest. What a wine. Please dispel whatever preconceptions you may have of 2018 white Burgundy. This clocks in at under 13% but sacrifices no intensity. Crisp stone fruit and daffodils in the nose and an incredible mineral presence that doesn't go away. This will make for great wine down the road. Wow.
This comes from Pierre-Henri's family's considerable holdings in this parcel just at the foot of the village. No shortage of ripeness here but still good length and energy here, all white peach and toasted sesame in the nose, with a lovely salty note in the mid-palate. Yummy.
3.13 hectares of vines dating from 1938, with an average age of 40 years, in limestone clay soils, well exposed to the east. Île des Vergelesses is considered the finest climat in Pernand-Vergelesses and the Chandon bottling is a truly fabulous wine, year after year. The fruit is distinctly red here but reviewing my notes, I was apparently more concerned with the mouthfeel and texture than any kind of flavor descriptor.I also used a bad word in my hyperbole. This starts out quite point and linear, with incredible drive, but broadens in the mid-palate and becomes quite lacy. Overall this is quite delicate, with just the right amount of grip. Tremendous.

The 2019 Rateau "Reversées" shows generous black cherry, boysenberry, notes of cherry pit and anise on the nose. Ripe mid-weight palate, ripe black fruits, hints of iodine and iron and other soil beneath supple structure. A bit lighter and brighter than the 2018. 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. A fine pairing with braised chicken thighs with mustard, tarragon, and shallots. A great value from the pioneer of biodynamic Burgundy!
Located on the lower slopes of the Mont de Sène, abutting Santenay with a sunny south-southwest exposure. The 40+ year-old vines produce small bunches of grape. Rouges-Queues makes beautiful, expressive Burgundies that deserve a place in one's cellar.
From 3 parcels of old vines in clay and limestone soils of the Les Saunières lieu-dit beneath Clos Rousseau.
Bright sweet fruit on the nose with earth and smoke; rich and quite full-bodied, plenty of ripe tannin and sweet fruit — classic Pommard. JW
Based in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune and farming a series of relatively humble appellations, Lydia Cornu makes delicious affordable red Burgundies. There are no tricks or bells and whistles, just good farming and a light touch in the cellar. This Hautes Cote De Nuits comes from vines between 25 and 40 years old and is full of quite bright red fruit, brambly spice and a lovely spine of snappy acidity. On day one, it showed a really silky, classic young Burgundy chalky dusty mineral character that belies its limestone soils, while day two revealed a chalky dusty mineral character that belies its limestone soils, so feel free to give this a splash in a decanter, then throw some duck breast in a pan and enjoy!

The northernmost edge of Gevrey, 'Champeaux' is high on the hill, and a jigsaw puzzle of terraces and different exposures. The rocky soils make for very precise and long-lived wines.
From eight different parcels, with an average vine age of sixty years and some vines that go back to 1915. A terrific calling card for this domaine. There is lovely fullish strawberry and dark cherry fruit, with real grip and structure without losing the prettiness of the wine. The finish is long and quite spicy and savory. The oak is exceptionally well-judged and well-handled. Sam Ehrlich
Vines here range from twenty to seventy years old, planted in red clay and gravel.
From two parcels within the vineyard, with shallow rocky limestone at the top and deeper clay lower down.
