I’m here to present a wine I’m truly passionate about (at a price you will be passionate about too!)
Yes, Burgundy is complicated, but I love it, especially when I come across hidden gem like this! Believe me when I say offering this wine at this price point is like catching lightening in a bottle. Allow me to explain…
This wine is from the Burgundy premier cru - Borniques which is sandwiched between Musigny and Les Amoureuses in the village of Chambolle Musingy. Just three feet south or east from Borniques, you will be talking about a wine with a completely different price point $$$$$! Here is the scope, the soils of Borniques is almost identical to Musigny, but the distinction comes from the aspect of the vineyard – northeast tilt instead of Musigny and Amoureuses’ southeast tilt and. That’s it, just a few feet and a slight difference in their aspect, Borniques is an overlooked and underpriced premier cru from Chambolle, but totally worth drinking and collecting for us insiders!
It’s so rare to be able to find Burgundy from great vintage, ready to drink, undervalued 1er cru at this type of price! With that said, I geekily and proudly present to you one of my favorite Burgundy not to miss out on! Drink it with some Peking Duck this holiday and thank me later!
