ADD

Jean-Marc and his wife, Anne-Marie, are a rare breed in Burgundy these days— the one that truly lives by the credo that if you want something done right you’ve just got to do it yourself. No employees, no consultants, and of course, all that comes with that, including no time and no vacation. They don’t seem to want it any other way. This Gravières has loads of fruit, and it’s also got that unique Burgundy—and, more precisely, Santenay—earthiness to it that can turn the accidental sipper into a full-blown connoisseur. This is the style of Burgundy that makes you think, “How’d they do that?” It has put countless people down the one-way path of all-out Burgundy geekery. Sip with caution unless you are ready to go down that path... –Chris Santini
