Amazing Premier Cru Burgundy Values

Amazing Premier Cru Burgundy Values
Smart Buys to Cellar Buys

The Cote de Beaune is loaded with amazing expressions of Pinot Noir!

From Beaune 1er Cru to Pommard, the red wines from south of the city of Beaune that hail from the villages of Chorey-les-Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune and Pommard for instance have long been exceptional high quality wines at overall affordable prices. The power, structure and longevity of many of these wines is legendary. However, in the past decade we have seen a shift among producers to embrace the ethereal elegance of Pinot Noir and softer tannins in these vineyards. The results are breathtaking Burgundies that have refinement, power, structure, longevity, poise, lift and finely tuned balance. These are wines crafted for true lovers of Burgundy and for those that wish to enjoy them youthful and aged. It is a golden time to explore and enjoy the wines from these vineyards in Burgundy.

Cheers,
Jeremy
