André & Michel Quenard
France | Savoie and Bugey | Savoie Chignin If any Pinot Noir on these pages is built for the Parisian bistro or Lyonnais bouchon, it is this one from the hills of Chignin, in Savoie.
Domaine Pierre Guillemot
France | Burgundy | Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Succulent and concentrated with a magnificent grain, this cuvée is always among the more earthy and savory of Guillemot’s lineup.
Jean-Claude Regnaudot et Fils
France | Burgundy | Maranges With its soaring aromas of red and black fruit, Les Loyères bears a chiseled frame, outstanding minerality, and pitch-perfect acidity that gives it notes of citrus, brightness, and lift.
Domaine de Villaine
France | Burgundy Stylistically, Les Clous is in between La Fortune—lighter and brighter—and La Digoine—the densest and most sappy, characterized by medium weight with more red fruits, smooth but present tannins, and distinctive polish.
France | Burgundy | Fixin Solid yet affordable cru burgundy with the structure, concentration, and complexity similar to Gevrey-Chambertin’s wine, as well as the bright fruit and accessibility of its other neighbor, Marsannay.
France | Burgundy | Aloxe-Corton The Follin family’s 2019 reds are some of the most delicious of the vintage I have tasted, none more so than their incredibly vibrant and pure Aloxe-Corton.
France | Loire | Sancerre Previously blended into the domaine’s Sancerre rouge, the 2018 vintage is the first separate bottling of this unique vineyard, a successful experiment if there ever was one.
Domaine Régis Bouvier
France | Burgundy | Morey Saint Denis Surrounded by several grands crus, Regis’ plot of Morey Saint Denis is, not surprisingly, his most prestigious and most striking. The wine is firmly structured and robust, with dark, plump fruit that tastes fresh and utterly drinkable.
France | Burgundy | Corton Grand Cru This Corton is a reverie of sensual, pure-fruited Pinot Noir, its opulent fragrance of ripe cherry, violets, and sandalwood soaring atop a dense web of lace-like tannins.
France | Burgundy | Corton Grand Cru Grand cru red Burgundy often requires years in the bottle to reach its potential, and this 2017 Corton will age gracefully, but it is also charming and elegant right now.
