Making Sense of Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits: End to End, Spanning Six Communes in Two-Dozen Parcels by Brothers Vincent and Philippe at Domaine Lécheneaut

‘Côte de Nuits’ is a name that excites the senses; it is mysterious (the name means ‘hills of the night’), it is sensuous (95% of its output is built around silk-smooth, hedonistic Pinot Noir) and it is evocative, with wine…

Second Thoughts: Fabled Château Ausone Re-releases Older Second Wine ‘Chapelle d’Ausone’ Three Vintages: 2011, 2012 and 2016 + 2019 Pre-arrival Special Price

A Veritable Viticultural Revolution at Domaine Vacheron: Sancerre Cuvées Reflective of The Region’s Wide Soil Diversity in White, Rosé and Red. (6-Bottle Pack $318)

Burgundy Paradox: Red Gems from The Land of Chardonnay’s Gold Standard, The Triumvirate of Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet (5 Bottle Pack $358)

Few people would argue that the triumvirate of Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet produces some of the greatest white wines on the planet, but like that heavy metal band who releases a strangely poignant acoustic song, the reds of these three…

Southeast is Southeast, and Southwest is Southwest – Rosés From The Two Southern Opposite Ends of France: The Mediterranean Coast and The Atlantic Coast (A Baker’s Dozen $297)

“A rose is a rose is a rose” is a poetic riff about universal truth by Gertrude Stein, but add an accent aigu to the final ‘e’ and all bets are off. As a style of wine, rosé is as…
