We are pleased to offer a limited amount of 2019 red Burgundy. These wines are pre arrival and will start arriving in the late Spring. As you can see from the prose below this is an outstanding vintage that is worthy of your attention!
“In Burgundy, the best wines,” wrote the 18th-century Cistercian monk, Dom Denise, “are produced in years when the harvest occurs in mid-September,” and as I tasted the 2019 vintage up and down the Côte d’Or this fall, I often found myself reflecting that, as maxims go, it is not a bad one. This is a thrilling year for Pinot Noir, delivering wines bursting with head-turning perfume and fresh, succulent fruit. Supple and enveloping, they are simultaneously serious and immensely charming, prompting Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier—who crafted some of 2019’s most compelling wines—to remark that he had never before encountered “a vintage that tasted so good, so young.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
“Another Great Vintage Ending in ‘9’ that was Hot and Very Dry yet Produced Fresh, Elegant and Concentrated Wines.“ Allen Meadows, Burghound
“First and foremost, the warmth of the growing season is brilliantly disguised or subsumed into the character of many wines. It is remarkable, almost irrational, how the finest 2019s maintain detail, clarity and tension and sapid finishes. Their acidic nerve underpins the success of 2019. These are vivid and bright wines, shiny as a new button. The fruit is often intense but rarely overblown or marred by overripe characteristics like prune or raisin.“ Neal Martin, Vinous Media
