As we’ve all been seeing for the last few years, all that hard work pays off as the wines are lights out-great.
Their latest release, the 2020 Savigny-les-Beaunes Rouge, is the product of ancient vines, upwards of 75 years old in the lieux-dits of Planchots and Connardises. It’s a blockbuster red Burg, blasting out of the glass with an aromatic profile of spiced red berries with just a touch of savory anise.
The wine is deeply concentrated, with layers of red berry fruit and the finish is long, with silky tannins and a mineral streak that simultaneously makes it brilliant at any dinner table and a perfect candidate for short term aging.

The secret to Philippe’s tightly wound, complex Pinot Noir is a combo of ancient vines, natural farming techniques, and low yields. The wines are built to age, with incredible tension and length. And the secret to me securing his other-wordly 2017 old-vine Gevry-Chambertin can be chalked up to a great relationship and over a decade supporting superior Burgundian winemaking. The wine is scary good. The nose is wild, filled with spiced dark raspberries, red flowers, and baking spices. The palate is elegant and racy, with a dynamic tension that runs right through its minute-long finish. This is a high-toned, wound-up Pinot, that is starting to hit its prime and is really turning out to be a ‘must-have’ for true Burgundy lovers.
Winemaker Patrick Brunet’s tiny Domaine Robert estate consists of 50-60 year old vines, deeply rooted in the granitic soils of Fleurie. His new release of his Cote du Py Morgon is going to win over some fans in a big way. Patrick produced a concentrated, structured Beaujolais that’s got a lot of lift and fresh acidity to pair with blue and blackberry notes. It’s a total steal for the price.
