Burgundy - Côte de Beaune

I buy a fair amount of Burgundy these days, playing catch up to a certain extent with the Nebbiolos that make up the bulk of my cellar. One of the greatest things about the wine world is that there is always a new region to discover and explore and more to learn than any one person can ever hope to master.

For a beginner it can seem daunting, mostly because it is, but as we’ve begun to explore Savigny with some earlier purchases, it’s only reasonable to continue our exploration of red Burgundy by starting in the south, Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune.

These wines tend to be the object of a little less lust among Burgophiles which means that there is more wine available and often better pricing than more illustrious labels. I find plenty of value in the Côte de Beaune and enjoy the styles of wine making as well, so you’ll get no complaints from me!
