From an unbelievable Burgundian estate comes the 2016 Camille Giroud Gevry-Chambertin. It is a brilliant wine– dark ruby color to its core, with an expressive, complex nose that just blasts from the glass. High-toned and intensely fruity with an undercurrent of earthy goodness, its finish is long and stony, a classic Gevrey-Chambertin.
Lydia Cornu’s 2018 Pernand Blanc Les Vignes Blanches is intense, loaded with flavors of green apple, lemon cream and hazelnuts. It’s crazy long on the palate, mineral and stony all the way through which keeps it light on its feet and incredibly drinkable. The only downside to Lydia’s white wines is that she makes tiny amounts of wine– just a few barrels total.
During all my years at Jean-Georges, for white Burgundy, and specifically, Puligny Montrachet, nothing sold quite like Etienne Sauzet. The 2017 is rich but racy white Burg 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.
This domaine was my favorite of the white burgundy domaines at Jean Georges. Referts might as well be a Grand Cru in my book. Its old vines, rooted in a sheer slab of limestone, produce epic wines of finesse, length and power that will wow at any table next Saturday night and every other for at least the next decade.
The Bourgogne Rouge 2017 is the bulk of the red wine production at Raquillet. It is the product of 60-year-old vines, rooted in mineral limestone hillside vineyards. Vinified entirely in oak, this is juicy, berried-up Pinot Noir with a lip-smacking mineral finish that makes it absolutely perfect at any table.
The 2018 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a terrific white Burgundy with a killer nose of citrus rind, quince and thyme that opens up to a dense, packed mid-palate of crunchy fruit. The finish is classic Chablis, chalky, mineral and fine. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.
Louis Boillot made some of the best wines I’ve tasted in Burgundy from 2017, with a rare combination of aromatic lift, concentration, and structured. The Gevrey Chambertin is a classic; intensely fruity with a mineral streak a mile long. This is premier cru level wine at the “villages” price.
