Welcome to one of the most historic wine regions in the world, a province of eastern France that is famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of other grapes are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) This is complicated and exciting territory - the hallowed ground where more than a few bonafide wine geeks end up. View our selection...

Wine & Spirits: "Gentle strawberry fruit fills this soft rosé, its zesty finish keeping it clean. A fine aperitif." (4/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "Full, ripe wine, layered with fruits and a dry, more mineral core. The wine has good depth of flavor, strawberries, red currants and a citrus cut that keeps the wine fresh at the end." (11/2013) K&L Notes: This delightful sparkling rosé wine comes from Burgundy. It is made of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay Noir. The charming eye of the swan color comes from the addition of Pinot Noir to the wine when the lees are disgorged, following the traditional fermentation in... Read More »
92 points James Suckling: "A rich and delicious white with bright acidity plus sliced apple pie and lemon. Bright and satisfying. From the Burgundy appellation just below Puligny. This is all barrel fermented and aged. Long finish." (6/2015) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A subtle touch of matchstick character sits atop the still fresh aromas of pear and various floral elements. There is good volume to the punchy and nicely detailed flavors that possess an appealing richness on the acceptably complex but pleasantly persistent finale." (6/2015) K&L Notes: This delightfully rich white Burgundy is made as an homage to Olivier Le... Read More »
Located in Gevrey-Chambertin, Frédéric Esmonin has winemaking in his blood. His father, Andre, produced the grand cru Mazis-Chambertin for the Hospice de Beaune, and his cousin Sylvie is also well regarded. From the Prince of Pinot: "Judicious use of oak, excellent concentration at every level and early bottling maintaining freshness make Esmonin's wines very attractive and finely structured red Burgundies. They are among the first Burgundies from each vintage to arrive on our shores and they are very reasonably priced considering the pedigree of the vin... Read More »
This is made from 100% Pinot Noir, hand harvested and all whole cluster fermentation. This is careful, small scale wine-making, and the result is a rosé of distinction, without the usual high levels of sugar many use to mask their lower quality base wine. It has a pretty, pale color, which the French call "Oeil de Perdrix" (Eye of the Partridge) with notes of strawberries on the nose and an elegant finish. Bravo! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy buyer)
From a tiny negociant producer in Puligny-Montrachet that we found by chance during a buying trip in Burgundy, and have been carrying since the 2008 vintage. Wonderfully affordable Burgundy, and a staff favorite that is sure to sell out at a brisk pace.
92-94 points Vinous: "Building off the considerable success of their 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary 1er Cru, Jadot has decided to make the wine again in top years. One of the highlights in this range, the 2012 boasts stunning power, depth and harmony. The lifted aromatics recall the Ursules, but here the fruit possesses more volume and creaminess. An explosive, layered finish rounds things out in style. Some of the parcels in the blend are Avaux, Cent Vignes, Pertuisots, Vignes Franches, Perrières, Toussaints and Chouacheux." (1/2014) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "blend of 17 different owned 1ers plus anothe ...Read More »
Though the 2014 has yet to be reviewed, the 2013 earned "Outstanding Top Value" from Burghound: "This too is extremely fresh though with a bit more aromatic breadth to the floral, citrus, pear and apple-scented nose. The middle weight flavors possess an attractive texture and solid concentration before terminating in a balanced and lingering finish. I would suggest holding this excellent effort for 2 to 3 years though it could be approached young. Recommended." (06/2015) From the importer, Louis Dressner: "The wines from the Pernot family in Puligny-Mont... Read More »
This Domaine, run by two sisters, Mireille Desmonet and Claudie Jobard, makes lovely wines in Pommard. The Cuvée Milliane is named after their grandmother, and comes from a 1/2-hectare parcel in the town of Pommard, with vines of more than 55 years of age. A gentle fermentation using native yeasts results in a charming wine, with a bright cherry note and a silky finish. This drinks much more like a village Pommard than like a simple Bourgogne Rouge. It is bright and fresh, with a bit of grip on the finish and lovely character. And thanks to our direct im... Read More »
This elegant wine comes from the border with Meursault and tastes like it. From a tiny negociant producer in Puligny-Montrachet that we found by chance during a buying trip in Burgundy, and have been carrying since the 2008 vintage. A staff favorite.
From the winery: "Red fruit aromas (blackcurrant, raspberry, cherry) with spicy scents of underbrush. Its long finish and round tannins will continue to amplify with age."
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An attractively fresh nose of distinctly earthy red and dark currant aromas leads to precise, intense and utterly delicious middle weight flavors that possess better than average depth, length and balance for a wine at this level. Worth considering plus it should reward a few years of cellaring too if desired." (4/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "This fresh wine is all about fruit. Soft tannins and attractive strawberry flavors are lightly cut with acidity. Coming from vines between 50 and 60 years of age, it has some extra concentration. Drink this fragrant wine now." (7/2015) K&L Notes: Nicola... Read More »
Located in Marsannay at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, Domaine Bart is a small property that owns 19 hectares of vineyards in both Marsannay and Fixin. The wines have a reputations as being classically flavored and dependable in just about any vintage, year after year. A beautiful rosé, the 2014 Domaine Bart Marsanny Rose is a joy to drink. It is hard to beat a great rosé when it is made from Pinot Noir grapes, loaded with delicate floral aromas and gorgeous notes of young strawberries, white raspberries and subtle wild herb notes. This rosé will... Read More »
90 points Wine Spectator: "Everything is in the right place in this butter-tinged, peach-, apple- and lemon-infused white. Intense and persistent, with spice and mineral notes on the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2024. 1,200 cases imported." (3/2015)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Rully Les 4 Vignes has a brisk, cranberry and tomato leaf-scented bouquet that feels a little bucolic. The palate is sharp and a little rustic on the entry, but clean with charming, dry, dark cherry fruit on the finish." (10/2014)
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is a hint of matchstick character to the mostly citrus-infused nose that leads to attractively vibrant, cool and delicious flavors that deliver solid persistence on the clean, dry and inviting finish." (6/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Lusher on the nose than most. Correct with real chalky chew and life and interest. Juicy. Quite long." (11/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Bourgogne Chardonnay, which had been bottled already when I visited Pierre-Yves, has a light and pretty, floral bouquet rather than fruit-driven. The palate is crisp on the entry with sharp acidity and a sour lemon finish. Ve ...Read More »

From a tiny negociant producer in Puligny-Montrachet that we found by chance during a buying trip in Burgundy, and have been carrying since the 2008 vintage. Wonderfully affordable Burgundy, and a staff favorite that is sure to sell out at a brisk pace. The St-Romaine Blanc comes from Sous la Velle and Sous la Chateau, two of the best sites in Saint Romaine, a village with a cool climate and rocky soils.
Sustainably produced by the son of Isabelle and Vincent Greuzard of Château de la Greffiere. From the importer: "One of the best terroirs of the Maconnais with its clay-limestone soil and close proximity to the famous Roche de Solutre. Xavier is as hard-working as his parents and is a very promising young vigneron."
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very mild hint of reduction still allows the notes of roasted nut, acacia blossom, citrus rind and various white orchard fruit scents to be appreciated. The agreeably textured, delicious and relatively generous medium weight flavors culminate in citrusy and persistent finish that is not especially dry." (6/2015) Wine Spectator: "Lean and citrusy, revealing lemon, green apple and clove notes. Tight, with a mouthwatering finish. Shows intensity and a glimmer of richness at the core. Best from 2017 through 2024." (12/2015)
87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A fresh and cool yet ripe nose offers up aromas of both red and dark pinot fruit that display whiffs of lavender and violet. There is good punch and a plenty of minerality to the middle weight flavors that possess a mildly rustic but unusually spicy backend. In sum this is pretty if not deep." (1/2014) K&L Notes: Located in Marsannay at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, Domaine Bart is a small property that owns 19 hectares of vineyards in both Marsannay and Fixin. The wines have a reputations as being classically-flavored and dependable in just about any vintag... Read More »
90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* Here too there is a bit of residual sulfur so once again I would suggest aerating this for several minutes first. Otherwise there is fine intensity to the notably ripe, dense and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are markedly saline in character on the notably dry and refreshing finale that presently displays a touch of austerity." (6/2015)
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Notes of reduction again mask the nose though the mildly funky aromas are followed by rich, full and delicious flavors that manage to retain a good sense of underlying detail and tension on the lingering finish. This is a bit coarser than the Champlots and should drink well slightly earlier." (6/2015) K&L Notes: From the importer: "This husband and wife team is located in the hamlet of Gamay nestled between Puligny Montrachet and St. Aubin. In close proximity to the Grand Crus, Domaine Sylvain Langoureau is made up of numerous small parcels totaling 8.5 hectares. Own... Read More »
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An expressive nose mixes notes of citrus and white-fleshed fruit that precede fresh, cool and intense middle weight flavors that terminate in a clean and dry finish of moderate depth and persistence. This should reward 2 to 3 years of cellaring if desired." (6/2015) Wine & Spirits: "This is an impressive Bourgogne blanc, expressing its ginger and pineapple scents with subtlety and finesse. Touches of white mushroom bring an earthy contrast to the freshness. Pour it with roast chicken and wild mushrooms." (4/2015)
90 points Vinous: "Tollot-Beaut's 2012 Chorey-lès-Beaune is intensely perfumed and juicy, with dark red cherry, hard candy and spice notes that are pushed forward. Firm, slightly coarse tannins give the wine its slightly rustic personality, but I say that in the best sense. The 2012 is an ideal wine for the dinner table, where it will offer much pleasure. The style is frank, direct and super-expressive. (AG)" (4/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and laced with cherry and berry flavors on a balanced frame. Approachable now, but this should develop over the next five or so years. Drink now through ...Read More »
92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Saint Aubin 1er Cru Le Charmois has one of the finest bouquets from Marc Colin with compelling mineral-driven, flinty/citric fruit that are beautifully focused. The palate is crisp and taut with bracing acidity. There is very fine weight here with glimpses of almond and brioche toward the long and persistent finish that never gives up on that razor-sharp acidity. One of the best from the domaine this year." (12/2014)
The Mercurey Clos Rond comes from a single vineyard in Mercurey. The name means "the walled vineyard in that brambly area," derived from the local word "Ronde" instead of the more usual French "Ronce," meaning brambles. In a land where ownership is usually splintered, this vineyard is a rare case where the entire vineyard is under one owner, Domaine Faiveley. It lies on a gentle slope, with rich red-brown soil, a fairly high clay content and buried limestone beneath. The result is a Pinot Noir displaying rich, round fruit, both red and black, and just a ... Read More »
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières has a similar bouquet compared to the Bâtard-Montrachet, quite potent with spice, green apple, almost Riesling-like in style with great definition. The palate is quite gras-like in style, and perhaps here if I am to make comparisons, you might place it closer to Corton-Charlemagne. There is appreciable weight in the mouth here, good length and a generous dash of lemongrass on the finish. Very fine indeed." (1/2016) 90-93 points Vinous: "(Pernot owns more than three of the ten total hectares of Folatières): Pale, green-tinged ye ...Read More »
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding top value* An exceptionally fresh and very pretty array of liqueur-like red berry fruit aromas is cut with earth and soft spice hints. There is very fine volume to the delicious, round and succulent flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel before terminating in a clean, dry and highly complex finish. This is excellent for its level and recommended." (4/2014) Vinous: "The 2012 Bourgogne is a very pretty wine at its level. Delicate and floral on the palate, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet ...Read More »
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An expressive and nicely complex nose that is now beginning to turn to secondary with earth and subtle spice nuances that complement rich, round and sweet flavors that offer good punch and while this will be capable of additional aging, it is essentially ready now despite the still moderately firm finishing tannins." (4/2006) Wine Spectator: "This mature red is marked by a whiff of cherry jam, followed by sweet strawberry and cherry flavors. Lively and fresh, with some woodsy accents. Has good length." (5/2007) K&L Notes: According to Allen Meadows: "Mme Bize reports that her yields in... Read More »
Wine Advocate on Corcia: "Alain Corcia continues to be a fine source of fairly priced whites from the Maconnais and the Cote de Beaune. Few brokers or importers offer such outstanding values." (PR, 04/1998)
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets has a precise, mineral-driven, slightly fume bouquet that unfolds in the glass to great effect. The palate has a gras entry loaded with spicy citrus fruit that crescendo towards an impressive, vibrant finish that leaves touches of walnut and litchi on the long finish. This is very impressive. (NM)" (12/2013) Jancis Robinson: "More flinty and smoky than their Puligny-Montrachet, perhaps counter-intuitively. Lovely leesy texture and good density. Good length too. (RH)" (1/2014)
90 points Wine Spectator: "An elegant version, this exhibits ripe flavors of peach, apricot and grapefruit. Juicy, lingering with long finish that echoes fruit and spice. Shows integration and harmony." (12/2015) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding Top Value* There is fine volume and very solid mid-palate concentration to the medium-bodied flavors that possess good power and depth on the citrus-inflected, persistent and balanced finale. This possesses fine quality for a villages level Chassagne and is worth your interest." (6/2015)
90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A more deeply pitched and slightly riper nose reflects intensely earthy and sauvage aromas of underbrush and dark currant. There is good richness to the round yet attractively detailed medium weight flavors that possess plenty of minerality that adds a touch of lift to the more powerful and ever-so-mildly rustic finale. This well-balanced effort should also drink well young if desired." (1/2015) Wine Spectator: "Graphite, sandalwood, strawberry and spice flavors highlight this delicate red. Harmonious, featuring a combination of fragrance and intensity, with a lingering fi ...Read More »
According to importer T. Edward: "This husband and wife team is located in the hamlet of Gamay nestled between Puligny Montrachet and St. Aubin. In close proximity to the Grand Crus, Domaine Sylvain Langoureau is made up of numerous small parcels totaling 8.5 hectares. Owners of plots in St. Aubin, Meursault, Puligny and Chassagne, Sylvain and Nathalie's vines are planted to 75% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Aligote. Everything here is done by hand and with great care. Vines are pruned to a maximum of five shoots for naturally low yields. No treatme... Read More »
91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Sweet Spot, Outstanding* This is almost Vosne-like given how spicy the essence of red berry fruit liqueur suffused nose is where there is just enough wood to notice. The silky mineral-driven flavors are ultra-pure and refined before culminating in a linear and hugely long finish. I like the mid-palate volume and concentration as there is plenty of tannin buffering sap present. In brief, this is a very impressive wine of harmony and grace." (1/2015) 92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark red. Knockout nose displays great floral lift to the aromas of raspberry, crushed rock and bloo ...Read More »

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Impressive out of barrel, the 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Thorey is beginning to fulfill its potential in bottle. It has a conservative but detailed, forest floor and granite-scented bouquet that opens nicely in the glass, but never fully reveals itself at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, tightly wound red berry fruit interlaced with orange rind and sea salt. I suspect this may clam up for a few years so either commit infanticide...or find a cellar. (NM)" (6/2015) 89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, spices ...Read More »
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the mild wood toast frames the otherwise ripe and fresh aromas of black cherry, earth and oak spice notes. There is a seductive mouth feel to the vibrant and nicely detailed middle weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the ever-so-mildly austere and persistent finish. This is really quite good and would make a fine choice for an all-around house red that could be enjoyed young but should repay a few years of cellar time too." (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Marsannay Village comes from several parcels from within the appellation raised in 40% new wood. Tha ...Read More »
The wife of Francois Mikulski of Meursault, Marie-Pierre has started a small, artisan negociant business. This wine comes from declassified Chambolle, Nuits St George, Pommard and Marsannay fruit.
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pick of Jean-Louis Chavy’s wines is the 2012 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres. It has a very tight and controlled nose but give it a few swirls et voila! There are wonderful granitic, fume scents that begin to emerge with a shard of orange rind. The palate is fresh and vibrant, well-balanced and tense with a peacock’s tail of citrus lemon and lime on the composed finish. Very fine. Drink 2016-2026." (6/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This offers good focus, with lemon, melon and buttercream notes meshing seamlessly with the lively structure. Stays vibrant and mouthwate ...Read More »
90-92 points Vinous: "(from Colin-Morey's highest-altitude site in Chassagne-Montrachet but picked early; the malolactic fermentation ended just two weeks prior to my visit): Healthy pale yellow-green color. Sweeter and denser than the above Saint-Aubin samples, conveying a distinctly sappy quality to its lime and stone flavors. Finishes with enticing citrus zest lift. This vineyard prefers a cooler vintage, noted Colin-Morey.-Stephen Tanzer writing for Vinous.com" (9/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Saint Aubin 1er Cru en Remilly, much to my surprise, had the least expressive bouquet compared t ...Read More »
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Saint Aubin le Banc has quite a generous bouquet with flakes of almond and coconut, a hint of lime flower in the background. The palate is rounded and sensual on the entry, perhaps slightly lower acidity than its peers, although this simply just makes it more irresistible in its youth. The kind of wine you just want to "neck". I visited Pierre-Yves Colin after Nicolas Rossignol. Whilst the latter is about to make lock, stock and François Frère into a new facility, Pierre-Yves has just done it. In August 2015 to be exact, moving his 2014s barre ...Read More »
2012 Domaine Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2012 Domaine Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet. Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A mild touch of reduction suppresses the expressive of the yellow fruited nose somewhat. Otherwise there is reasonably good freshness and verve to the delicious and easy-to-like middle weight flavors that possess acceptable depth and length. This fleshy and very round effort should drink well young." (06/2014)
This lot contains the following items:
