Burgundy is arguably the world’s most beguiling wine region. And yet, once you’ve discovered it for yourself Burgundy often becomes equally irresistible. From Chablis in the north to Beaujolais in the south, humble Burgundian vignerons have farmed the world’s most parcelized vineyards since the 13th century. Climates vary from inclemently continental to mild and agreeable; soils, from Jurassic limestone through alkaline clay and manganese-rich schists. Through this mélange of elements, the passing centuries have given rise to unique voices, each proclaiming their autonomy: spicy, cherry-laden Beaujolais; generous, minerally Mâconnais, and austere, chalky Chablis. But invoking the most adoration and lining the walls of applauded cellars are the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of the Côte d’Or. Complex, silken and evocative at their best, they incite wonderment in those enlisted in their doctrine.
This Gamay Noir rosé from Beujolais is delicate and lively yet fleshy and generous. Tangerine, watermelon, lime blossom and wild strawberry characters with an underlying creaminess are supported by a steely mineral backbone. More >
Raspberry and blackberry fruits abound, speckled with hints of violet and mushroom on the nose. Ripe fruit opens the show on the generous, round palate, with clove spice bringing up the rear. This is a far cry from Beaujolais Nouveau. Rather, it’s a complex, versatile, moreish wine. More >
The Fleurie is juicy and expressive, with an undeniable elegance. Layers of strawberry unfold with notes of black olive, cinnamon and coriander, leading flawlessly into a long, juicy finish. Simply delicious. More >
This is no insipid Beaujolais. Deep cherry in color, a nose of ripe raspberries leads into wild strawberries and garrigue on the palate with distinct mineralogy, fine old oak tannins framing the fruit and balanced acid bringing up the rear. More >
Aromas of citrus fruits and lemon zest on the nose. The weighty, textured mid-palate boasts grilled nuts and stone fruit, while a long line of vibrant acidity enlivens the classic White Burgundy finish. More >
