Tasting Notes

This vintage is excellent and reflects a warmth and fuller body on the palate. Half of the juice ferments in old casks giving this lithe red wine a delicious accessibility. The Bourgogne Côte d'Or appellation is a new, regional Burgundy appellation that can be looked at as the premier version of the regional appellations (ie. Bourgogne Rouge). The appellation itself can encompass Pinot Noir fruit from any of the 40 villages (a 65 km stretch) over the Côte d'Or. The yields are lower and the quality of this bottle is nothing short of delicious.

Staff Pick Notes

When I brought this bottle home I wanted to savor it to the last, ruby-hued drop. I used my wine preservation tool and poured a taste of this family-operated, Vaudoisey-Creusefond. Before I knew it, I had wine key in hand, ripping out the cork. I had a new wine crush. I was smitten. with grapes coming from the villages of Pommard, Volnay, Meursault and Auxey-Duresses, this wine is gorgeous and has an elegant purity of fruit. Ripe, red cherries, strawberries and tart raspberry mingle with rose petals and violets. With a little time, the aromas shift gears into an earthy expression of dried tea leaves,wet stones and forest floor leaves. The bright freshness and ripe tannins associated with the 2018 vintage, make this wine an outstanding option for either apértif drinking or your favorite food pairings, such as roasted poultry.

Burgundy

The range of wine styles offered in Burgundy rivals that of any other region. In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape. Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness...
