EVERYDAY DRINKING RED BURGUNDY 3 BOTTLES OF EACH
Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne Rouge 2014
Jean-Jacques Girard’s family has been making wine in the Savigny-les Beaune valley for 500 years, so it’s not surprising to find that his regional appellation Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a little Savigny. Blackcurrant freshness, a touch of earth subsoil, a supple, easy structure and bull’s-eye line on through the whole from the attack to the finish.
Domaine Borgeot Santenay Vieilles Vignes 2015
Year in, year out, this Borgeot Santenay 'Vieilles Vignes' is one of our favorites. We've been drinking this wine consistently since we first met Pascal Borgeot back in 1989. The first Borgeot wine we tasted was his Santenay VV in the 1985 vintage. It was beautiful even in its youth, and we drank it lustily. Have done ever since. Pascal surprised us a few years back with a secret stash of the 1985, and we re-lived our youth in a glass. This is our image of Pinot Noir from the Cotes de Beaune. It ranks as one of the best deals in Red Burgundy on this site...which explains why it is always among the first to sell out
Domaine Pierre Thibert Bourgogne ‘Les Bouffales’ Rouge 2015
A single vineyard Bourgogne is often a thing of wonder, a reflection of the precise terroir of the village it comes from. And this ‘Bouffales’ shouts Nuit St. Georges. A superbly positioned parcel. Blackcurrant and pepper, supple in its attack, complete through the mid-palate with a finish on fruit. Great structure, a wine that drinks above its appellation.
Michel Arcelain Bourgogne 2013
This Bourgogne will stop you in your tracks. Like so many regional appellation wines from small, proud production domains, the grapes for this wine come from a vineyard in the village where the producer lives and work. In this case…it’s Pommard. This is no big-volume blend Bourgogne like you get from the negociant houses. No, you’ll swear that this is a little Pommard. And that’s how it should be!
