Staff Pick Notes

Passetoutgrain, loosely translating to "throw it all in," is a category of wine within Burgundy that blends both Pinot Noir and Gamay together. As Burgundy continues to skyrocket in both popularity and price, Passetoutgrain has become one of the best kept secrets in French wine for me. When you have an esteemed producer such as Georges Lignier crafting these wines, they can be arguably the top value everyday drinking red Burgundies on the shelf. Georges is the cousin of Hubert Lignier, a legendary producer within the Côte de Nuits. The winery is now run by George's nephew, Benoit Stehly, whose style leans more towards elegance, smoothness, with striking aromatics. For those looking for a wine combining the best elements of Côte de Nuits Pinot Noir with the depth of a Cru Beaujolais, you will surely find a winner here!

Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness of a California wine, yet retain a very Burgundian, mineral-driven core and great acidity....
