Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 90-92
"A strikingly fresh nose combines notes of various red berries with discreet spice and floral whiffs that precede the super-sleek, intense and lilting flavors that exhibit a beguiling sense of underlying tension on the linear and refreshing finish. This will need at least a few years to better flesh out, but it should be lovely in time." -Allen Meadow

Antonio Galloni

AG 91-93
"The 2018 Beaune Clos des Aigrots 1er Cru is matured in 15% new oak. It has a very delineated, focused bouquet of mineral-rich red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, gentle grip, superb mineralité and real weight and depth on the very long, persistent finish. This is beautifully balanced. Superb." -Neal Martin

Robert Parker

RP 92-94
"The 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots is one of the highlights of the portfolio this year, wafting from the glass with a deep bouquet of cassis, plums, dark chocolate and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, largely concealed tannins, succulent acids and a long finish." -William Kelley

Decanter

D 94
"Frédéric Lafarge makes a white and a red from the Clos des Aigrots, both of which are well worth buying in 2018. This Pinot comes from the lower part of the Premier Cru and is around 50 years' old. Typically fine, velvety and understated, this shows that the man's magic touch isn't restricted to what he does in Volnay. Elegant, polished winemaking. Drinking Window 2022 - 2030." -Tim Atkin

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
