Red Burgundy Verticals

Drinking multiple vintages of the same wine is an excellent way to get to know a wine. In Burgundy, vintages play an important role in the character of a wine, and tasting the same wine in vertical be an educational (and delicious) experience.

Of course there are two vintage variables with every bottle: the time elapsed from the harvest year, and the patterns of that particular vintage itself. In other words, it’s impossible simultaneously to drink two wines at the same age from different vintages. But in our eyes that only adds another variable of intrigue.

So we’ve collected some red Burgundy vertical trios — the same wine in 3 vintages. Quantities are limited.

Michel Gros’s tiny plot in Morey-St-Denis comes from the “En la Rue de Vergy” vineyard. Perched high on the hill just above the famous Grand Cru Clos de Tart, it’s a village level plot that for years has been considered a would-be premier cru. Look for delicate fruit, lovely lace-like minerality, and a gorgeous subtle depth across all three vintages.

This monopole village Gevrey vineyard always overperforms its classification, and the Varoilles style is one of bold, meaty extraction. Together they make this a bold wine that ages beautifully in the mid-term. Pair with grilled meats.

(+)
This premier cru monopole is located just around the corner from the Clos-St-Jacques, in particularly mineral-laden soils. There’s an elegance that’s unusual for Gevrey-Chambertin in this cuvée, and one we find year in and year out. Look for briary, bramly fruits, a pleasant toastiness, and the concentration that comes from over 70 year old vines.
