In addition to getting the award for the longest wine name in our entire portfolio, Duline’s Refosco gets the award for our favorite Refosco we’ve ever tasted. Refosco’s natural typicity is perfectly executed here: full to medium-body, complex aromatics, relatively silky texture, with white pepper and white flowers bringing a cooling and a spicy sensation to its bright red and black fruits.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:
1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
