Dangin, Bruno NV Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Noirs

What a difference 2 kilometers makes! Bruno Dangin's Crémant de Bourgogne is made from 100% Pinot Noir from organically farmed vines in Molesme, located just beneath the southern border of Champagne's Aube.The limestone rich soils are the same as those of their pricier neighbor to the north.  Boasting a fine bead and soft mousse and aromas of red fruits and autolyse, one would be hard pressed to spot the difference. The palate offers great depth, pure pinot fruit, and a suave, layered, persistent finish. This is a great value in bubbles and will grace the holiday table nicely. John McIlwain

de Villaine, A et P 2018 Bourgogne La Digoine

In the past, I have often heard Domaine de Villaine referred to as "Baby DRC," a reference to its creation by Aubert de Villaine, director of the legendary Vosne estate. However, this misses the point slightly. There are certainly similarities in the way the two domaines are managed (biodynamic viticulture, a large percentage of stems included in the vinification of the red wines). However, perhaps the most important link is a respect for terroir and this means the results diverge, offering completely different expressions of Pinot and Chardonnay. These are distinctly Chalonnaise wines, balancing a natural rusticity with a purity of fruit that is a testament to the quality of the farming that is a hallmark of this estate. "Digoine" may be labelled Bourgogne Chalonnaise but the humble label belies the site's greatness. Digoine is a remarkably structured Bourgogne and ages effortlessly. I often go out of my way to buy older vintages whenever I can and the '99 is one of the best '99s I've had from anywhere in the region.    Sam Ehrlich

Jacqueson, Paul et Marie 2018 Mercurey 1er cru Les Champs Martin

Paul and Marie Jacqueson are third generation winemakers in the Côtes Chalonnaise carrying on their grandfather's tradition of crafting high-quality wines from Rully and Mercurey. Today the domaine consists of 13 hectares farmed using organic treatments, all hand-harvested. All of their reds are 100% destemmed and aged in 25% new oak for one year. The 'Champs Martin' shows an elegant balance between density of flavor and remaining light on its feet. The nose is a like a walk through a Burgundian forest; complete with tree bark, wild flowers, raspberry brambles and wild cherry, with a dash of fresh cinnamon for good measure. Lush and concentrated on the palate, but not the least bit weighted down.  Michelle DeWyngaert

Tripoz 2018 Bourgogne Rouge Chant de la Tour

The 2018 "Chant de la Tour" comes from a single parcel  that has never been treated with chemicals of any kind, which comes as little surprise based on what's in the bottle. This is my platonic ideal of Bourgogne Rouge. The pure red cherry and strawberry fruit is vivid and lush without being cloying. The expression of limestone is clear and speaks beautifully of the region, with a dustiness in the finish that reminds me of clapping blackboard erasers. Completely delicious.

Tripoz 2018 Mâcon Rouge Les Perrieres

Mâcon Rouge is rarely seen in the wild these days, which is unfortunate, as it can be a deeply satisfying wine. Case in point: Tripoz's "Perrieres." There is a generosity to Gamay grown on limestone, which is on full display here. The wine is full of cranberry and strawberry fruit, a bit of cedar and a distinct peppery note that often appears in Bourgogne Passetoutgrains. The finish is distinctly salty, with good length. This is very nice and a great counterpoint if one is accustomed to Beaujolais.The 2016 is a wine I have very fond memories of.  Sam Ehrlich
