The upward spiral of Burgundy prices continues. In the four harvests of 2010-2013 many producers lost the equivalent of an entire vintage production, or more.
We were able to source these wines directly so you will not find Burgundy of this quality at lower prices than what we are able to offer here.
Quantities are limited (they always are with good Burgundy) so please place your order quickly. Offer expires Thursday August 20 at noon. Mix and match as you please, minimum 12 bottle order.
