Burgundy collectors are finally getting wise to some of the best wines for the money in the whole region. Those wines are being made at Ann Colgin’s Camille Giroud estate. I know that collector’s have started to notice, because routinely people taste their wines at the restaurant & immediately ask me if they can buy a case. The best part is when I tell them the price! Most of the time these are fine burgundy drinkers that are used to paying at least double this!
In the 2020 vintage in Gevrey-Chambertin, yields were super low and temperatures were hotter than most Burgundian winemakers are accustomed. Many picked too late when the sugars were high and the fruit really ripe, but that was not the play. Still, Ann remained as cool in those hot temps as she did so many years ago in Napa, concentrating more on acid levels than sugars and picking at just the right time. As Master of Wine and Burgundy specialist Jasper Morris reported, if you did happen to pick at the right time “[the 2020s] are wines of a profound intensity beyond anything I saw in 2018 and 2019.”
