David Moreau Cote de Beaune Villages 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Romanee Conti, or DRC as it's so often abbreviated to, is easily the world's most collectible estate right now. Beyond the wines being mindbogglingly good, they can also cause the same reaction when you see how much most of the wines sell for. After a stop in the southern Rhone at the famed Chateau Beaucastel, David returned home to work for both Oliver Lamy at Domaine Hubert Lamy, then on to the fabled DRC. He then returned to his family's estate to apply his new found knowledge to work the family's 5 hectare holdings in far more humble surrounding than the great vineyards that DRC owns. His new found knowledge has immediately transformed in to new found success, as he's captured a lot of attention in just a few short vintages. His 2011s are simply stunning, and this humble bottling is one of the big reasons he's taken off so quickly. At this kind of pricing, it's easy for Burgundy lovers to grab a case (or 2!) for tremendous early drinking. Not only is this a must buy for Burgundy lovers, but a name to keep a watchful on eye for future purchases too. If he keeps trending upward the way we think he is, you better believe we are going to keep buying these incredible values!
