The Burgundy Pyramid

Making sense of the complexity of the complexity of Burgundy isn’t easy.

Though Burgundy only comprises 5% of France’s vineyard area, it holds 100 different Appellations, 25% of the entire French total.  There are no less than 5,000 growers, 85% of whom own less than 10 hectares, and four fifths of them make wine.

To make matters...

Domaine Ferrari, Irancy, Les Mazelots 2019

"Bright, transparent crimson. Edgy, stony, pure Pinot with a real northern character of its own, but far from skinny. Already giving pleasure but clearly still quite youthful. Confident cocktail of raspberry juice infused with pebbles. I may be underestimating its ageability but suspect it is probably best enjoyed with (relative) youth on its side. VGV "16.5/20 Jancis Robinson, March 2022

The Ferraris make four other pure Pinots; not single vineyard wines, but from small plots within different subzones of the appellation. Mazelots is one of the best regarded of these: marked by stony soils with a high clay content; mid-slope; and facing south in the middle of the vineyard bowl. This shows more power, purity and sophistication than the village Irancy: there’s lots of flesh and vivid fruit - strawberries, blackberries and black plums - plus ripe tannins, good texture and expansive aromatics; but also an appealing freshness and cut to it. This is already drinking well but should develop nicely. Now-2026.

Domaine Ferrari - with son Nicolas taking over father Christophe, who began buying vineyards around the village in 1987 - is among the leaders in the appellation. Christophe considers 2019 a really special vintage there, offering spectacularly ripe and clean fruit. The style of the wines is traditional Burgundy: full-flavoured and ageworthy. They may not show the finesse of the finest of the Côte d’Or – but they are only a fraction of the price. If you used to buy Gevrey-Chambertin, switched to the Côte de Beaune but can’t afford that any more, get stuck in. Or if you are wealthier treat these as your midweek drinking!

Wine merchant with interesting wines. We are currently enjoying the mixed case of wines from Gascony. All are really delicious and fit a variety of foods. Delivery was swift. I would like to think…
