Chandon des Briailles

One of the greatest differences between the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune is the number of Grand Cru vineyards there are for red Burgundy, 24 to 1! That one is a doozy though. Corton is renowned for the white wines this hill of limestone produces, but the reds from Corton are the sleepers of Burgundy. They are the most affordable Grand Cru reds you can find and while they can be tough and taut with minerality in their youth, they age spectacularly well.
