The Desvignes family makes Pinot Noir in a heartier, brisker form. These red Burgundies trade elegance for rusticity — they’re more comfortable in a bistro than a fancy restaurant. The tannins are juicy, and the prices are friendly.

| Domaine Desvignes |
Givry, Burgundy 

We are as excited about the wines from the Domaine Desvignes in the Côte Chalonnaise as we have been about an upcoming producer in a long time. You may recall the story — we first bought bottles there from Gautier Desvignes’ grandfather in 1998, while we were living in Cluny just down the road. It was well-made, straightforward wine, and that was the domaine’s style until young Gautier began to make changes less than a decade ago. In a remarkably short time, he has upgraded the winemaking facilities, installing a gravity-fed winemaking process and new barrel rooms, and has updated bottling practices, the viticulture, and begun selectively replanting some vineyards.

Both Vinous’s Neal Martin and the Wine Advocate’s William Kelley MW identified Gautier as a rising star of the Côte Chalonnaise a few years ago, and the results of his work are more impressive every year.  Reviewing the excellent 2019s, Kelley reported: “The young Gautier Desvignes continues his rapid ascent at the 11-hectare estate, and I was delighted by these new releases. Elegant, sumptuous reds and bright, chiseled whites are the order of the day, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended.”
