2014 Bourgogne “Pinot Noir”

Christophe Buisson

2014 Bourgogne “Pinot Noir” Christophe Buisson - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

This is my kind of Burgundy. Exuberant and fun, with plenty of bounce to the ounce and bang for your buck. You don’t need to cellar it for years; no need to swirl and stare at it to try and conjure up something enjoyable; no need to worry if it’s a fruit day or a root day; nor is there a need to pour it into a fancy glass. Just pop the cork wherever you are—breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, or dessert—with company or by yourself. Pour it into whatever receptacle you wish. Then, just enjoy yourself. Repeat as desired. –Chris Santini

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
