While it is easy to fall under Burgundy’s charm and be dazzled by its enchanting wines, digging a little bit deeper reveals a complex geological puzzle of limestone, clay, sand, marl, gravel, and stone. For a relatively small stretch of land, its terroir is shockingly diverse! The number of appellations is impressive, and the differences you’ll encounter in wines from neighboring plots of land are fascinating. This is a region not easy to master, yet all the more intriguing to discover! On these mythical slopes, the noble Pinot Noir finds its ideal home. Cultivated by skilled hands, the finicky grape yields to the terroir, allowing each appellation and parcel of land to express itself. The intricacies and nuance of these wines are born from a variety of factors, including the dedicated vignerons who tirelessly work their vines to achieve the purest representation of their treasured land. Whether your tastes tend toward the elegant and supple, the dense and powerful, or the bright and lively, you will find a worthy companion. Our red Burgundy sampler lets you taste your way through these esteemed appellations to discover first-hand the wondrous possibilities the region is capable of providing to sensitive palates.

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
