Corsin’s Vielles Vignes 2017 is a masterpiece. Carved from 40-50 year old vines in Saint-Véran, perched high up in the hills with incredibly rich clay limestone soil beneath. The wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak, giving it length and depth and a wonderful mineral expression. Drink it now while its still juicy with its white peach and ginger notes, or lay it down and let it continue to evolve over the next decade plus.
During all my years at Jean-Georges, for white Burgundy, nothing sold quite like Etienne Sauzet. The 2018 Bourgogne Blanc from this amazing producer gives readers and drinkers the opportunity to have an incredible white Burgundy from one of its best producers at a modest price. This wine is bristling with energy– rich and racy with a mineral length that not only shows it is one of the best white wines in the world for fine cuisine but also has the legs to gracefully age for a least a decade. Only a few bottles found their way to me, don’t miss em!

This is an exceptional premier cru offering from one of the most famous, most collected Burgundy producers. Clos des Porrets is a monopole, purchased by the Gouges family in 1933. Grégory claims it produces wine with the best potential of long aging within his range of wines. It has old vines rooted in pink limestone and rich clay, producing dynamite Nuits Saint Georges. Aromatically complex, with violets, black cherries and a touch of Burgundian earth. The fruit is pure, layers of dark cherries and plum that unfold in the glass with air. The tension is what you’d expect from one of the greats of Burgundy, wound-up and high-toned, the finish is mineral laded and goes on for minutes. This is truly extraordinary red Burgundy, an epic wine of power with finesse and just amazing potential.
I understand how daunting it can be each year to get Leflaive into your collection. But, even in its infancy, the 2018 vintage promises to bring something special. It already has Wine Spectator calling it, “an ideal vintage at Domaine Leflaive” and after tasting through the wines last week– I’m amazed.
The Mâcon-Verzé is a stunner and an incredible value. Drawn from nine special plots, and utilizing a combination of steel, cement and oak fermentation that leads to a wide array of flavor profiles. Fresh Granny Smith Apple set against a persistent minerality, refreshing with hints of Meyer Lemon.
Of course, it’s got incredible length and precision and at the price today, is as good a bargain as exists at Domaine Leflaive. If you’re starting or expanding your cellar, this is an impeccable place to begin.
Chaponnieres is a single parcel on the same hillside as the premier crus, with southern exposure and vines planted in 1950. They are rooted in a fine clay, the perfect soil for producing wine of incredible purity of fruit. The ’19 has intense aromatics of strawberry, black cherry, cinnamon and roses. The fruit is almost crunchy; incredibly fresh, juicy, really flat-out delicious. Great now, great in 10 years and qualitatively worth double the price!
