Lydia Cornu’s 2019 Haut-Côtes-du-Beaune is a product of super old vines and a low yield with no new oak in the ageing process. The wine is an absolute joy to drink– a bowl full of berries on the nose, high-toned, racy fruit in the mid palate with the structure and length that is the hallmark of Cornu-Camus wines. It’s delicious now. It’ll be delicious in a decade. And as the first non-tariffed Burgundy in a while, today’s price is truly absurd.
The old vines that make up the 10.5 hectare of Domaine Vavril in southern Burgundy grow in chalky granitic, sandy soil. It’s part of what make these wines so complex and expressive. Winemaker Jean-Luc Ducruix’s brilliant 2020 red Burgundy has a fine nose of ripe berries, savory spice and red flowers. On the palate, the wine is juicy yet refined, with spectacular concentration that finishes fresh with a crackling vibrancy. Roast a chicken, drink Vavril!
Jean-Claude Janin’s Domaine des Terres de Chatenay estate has 7 hectares of naturally farmed, old Chardonnay vines rooted in some of the most mineral soil of Burgundy. The resulting wines are electric renditions of white Burgundy, with high-toned, floral aromatics, a deep concentration of green apple and pear fruit and a laser-like finish that is stony, a touch saline and a mile long.
92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
The newly released 2019 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a knockout, even better than the fantastic 2018 we offered last year. This year it comes armed with a 92 points– fitting for 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 and minerally and incredibly smooth. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.
94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Burgundy is famously riguously reviewed with many of the best wines never seeing above 92 points. But today’s wine is incredible and has broken the seal and then some. Read what Parker’s Wine Advocate had to say: “Unwinding in the glass with a deep bouquet of plums, cherries, warm spices and sweet soil tones, the 2018 Moulin-à-Vent Les Brussellions is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with the broadest shoulders and most mid-palate volume of the range. This is a serious but beautifully balanced wine that’s built for the long haul.” -Wine Advocate
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!
