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.

Françoise & Denis Clair, Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge, Burgundy EP 2022 (Case of 6 MAGNUMS)

Case of 6 Magnums  An appellation which, with climate change, has become a source of great value Pinot in warmer vintages. Deep red, aromatic nose, rich palate of cherries, juicy and fresh with supple tannins, a more traditional style. Right now a little rustic but if it’s anything like the 2019 vintage it will be a bargain. 2025-2029

"Cask sample. Mid crimson. Pure dark fruit, deep and generous but still fresh and finely, structured by the firm tannins. A serious Hautes-Côtes. Juicy and long. GV. 16/20, 2027-2032, Julia Harding MW, www.jancisrobinson.com  22nd January 2024

Please note this wine is not available for immediate delivery and excludes duty & VAT, (payabale on delivery) We will contact you when the wine arrives in the UK, most likely in the autumn.
 

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
