This isn’t just coming from me– it’s coming from everybody who follows the Burgundy market closely: you are going to want 2019 Burgundy in your cellar. Period.
Whether you are a collector stocking for the long haul or a fan of knocked-out, downright delicious Pinot Noir, stock up on 2019s. The market knows, in what was already a short vintage in terms of yield, the best restaurants in the world and savviest of consumers have been gobbling up Burgundy at a rate that I have not seen since other now-legendary vintages, 2010, 2002, 1999 and 1990. I bought every bottle of Philippe Rossignol brilliant Gevrey-Chambertins that I could get on my hands on this year. Here’s your last call on just a remarkable red Burgundy
Philippe Rossignol’s wines are decidedly old-school. Firm upon opening, they blossom with air, revealing layer after layer of complexity, best discovered spending a few days with a bottle. In 2019, that might just be near impossible as the conditions of the vintage have provided just amazing primary aromatics and fruit, just impossible to savor slowly…
The secret to Philippe’s tightly wound, complex Pinot Noir is a combo of ancient vines, natural farming techniques, and low yields. Philippe is a strong believer in whole cluster fermentation; a traditional practice only possible with the ripest of bunches. Stem inclusion helps create more expressive wines, with jump-out-of-the-glass aromatics, and more depth, complexity, and longevity. The wines are built to age, with incredible tension and length.
