2022 Vézelay “La Piècette”

Domaine de la Cadette
Discount Eligible $38.00

Much remains for us to discover in the coming years from the youngest cru of Burgundy, Vézelay. In that spirit comes the Piècette cuvée, from a single parcel that is swirled with every single soil type you can find in the appellation. The domaine keeps it separate—a sort of Vézelay microcosm in a bottle, if you will—a showpiece of what could be considered a reference point of typicity for the region. It has all the best of Vézelay: a fresh, floral, citrusy attack, followed by warm and textured charm.

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.
