  • Bernard & Thierry Glantenay Bourgogne Rouge 2019

    £39.95

    “The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge delivers inviting aromas of cassis, sweet berries, spices and orange rind, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that’s lively and sapid. After the rich, gourmand 2018, the 2019 is a touch more nuanced and dynamic, but this is always a dependable cuvée. Drink: 2020-2028. 88 points

    Thierry Glantenay is one of the humblest, most discreet winemakers I visited in Burgundy, but that shouldn’t lead anyone to underestimate the quality of his wines, or the incremental but meaningful progress he makes every year. 2020’s initiative was to end roganage (trimming the vines) by tractor: instead, Thierry now trims by hand, with shears, letting the canopies grow higher in emulation of his upstairs neighbor in Les Rugiens, Thomas Bouley. As I wrote last year, Glantenay prefers to let temperature and alcohol do the work of extraction for him, keeping pigéage and rémontage to a minimum. He presses gently, and élevage, without racking until the mise en bouteille, takes place in at most 30% new barrels. I’d nominate these 2019s as Glantenay’s finest vintage since 2015, and they are very promising wines that still carry a much more modest tariff than a number of producers who don’t work as well in the vineyards or the cellar.”

  • Boigey Freres Bourgogne Rouge 2020

    £99.95

    “The 2020 Bourgogne Rouge offers plump red cherries on the nose, maybe just a little smudged, yet pure and enticing. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, what you might call a “sunny” Bourgogne Rouge with just a touch of VA on the finish. Boigey brothers feel that the warmth did affect this cuvée, and I suspect other vintages will be better. Drinking window: 2022-2025. 87 points”

  • Goisot Bourgogne Cotes d’Auxerre Corps de Garde Blanc 2022

    £29.95

    “The 2022 Bourgogne Cotes d’Auxerre Corps de Garde is taken from vat and due for racking into barrels after my July visit for bottling in the winter. It has an attractive bouquet with fennel and hazelnut aromas, discrete at first but gaining intensity with time. The palate is well-balanced with a smooth texture, lemon verbena mixed with white tea notes, dovetailing into a delicately spiced, quite pepper finish. Superb. Drinking window: 2024-2032. 89-91 points

    Just as Richoux is the standout producer in the neighboring village of Irancy, so Goisot is in Saint-Bris. I have waxed lyrical about these wines for several years now. It is always a pleasure to see winemaker Jean-Hugues Goisot, who had recently racked his 2022 reds at the time of my visit. He told me that he commenced the picking on August 29 and will conduct a slightly longer barrel maturation. These are quite brilliant expressions of Saint-Bris, cut from a totally different cloth to Chablis since the grape variety is Sauvignon Blanc rather than Chardonnay. Goisot’s cuvées from Irancy always prove that he is a dab hand at reds as well as whites.”

  • Julien Guillot Bourgogne Cuvee Auguste 2020

    £58.95

    “A lovely follow-up to the brilliant 2019, Guillot’s 2020 Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Auguste bursts with aromas of dark berries and cherries mingled with rose petals, sweet soil tones and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, with melting tannins and a lively, enveloping core of fruit, it will drink well on release. Drink: 2021-2025. 91 points”

  • Les Champs de L’Abbaye Bourgogne Rouge Le Clos des Roches 2021

    £34.95

    “Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise AOC. “Would we have an appellation of our own if, like Bouzeron, we had benefited from a resident as respected as Aubert de Villaine?” Hasard ponders, and the question isn’t misplaced. A sommelier who changed careers, Hasard purchased 6.5 hectares and kept only the best, exploiting five hectares of vines today, from which he produces 13 different cuvées. Certified organic since 1999, Hasard has planted at higher densities with massal selections and superior clones. Yields, at 25 hectoliters per hectare for red, would be considered low in the Côte de Nuits. In the winery, whites are pressed for two and a half hours to extract from the skins, and reds ferment with one- to two-thirds whole cluster—though there are no rules. In the cellar, élevage takes place in barrels from the Tonnellerie Mercurey and Stéphane Chassin. I was taken aback by just how good these wines are: Hasard’s concentrated, chiseled whites and his perfumed, enveloping reds deserve to be far better known outside of France. In short, this is a superb domaine that I can’t recommend highly enough, and Hasard’s wines will be covered every year in these pages from now on.”
