01 Nov New Arrival Burgundies
I challenge anyone out there to find a $20 Bourgogne rouge that’s 100% Domaine vineyards, almost entirely whole cluster and 90% Pommard juice. This is the real deal and we bought the ENTIRE U.S. allocation before the tariffs kicked in. Stock up while you can kids, the ride’s going to get a bit bumpy after this. Our white selection is from the illustrious Confuron-Gindre. This Domaine is literally wedged in between Romanee-Saint-Vivant and La Tache vineyards. This father and son winemaking team is still flying under most folks’ radar and their wines are nothing short of exceptional. This particular white is made from Chardonnay’s lesser know sibling Aligote, fodder for a nice kir in the hands of most, a show stopping value in the hands of a master. Both are amazing bargains and will disappear fast.
