Domaine Bernard & Thierry Glantenay, Bourgogne Rouge, France 2018
There're only a few producers whose Bourgogne level wines are just as exquisite as their village level cuvées and this domaine is one of them. After Thierry Glantenay took over his family domaine in Volnay he became a rising star to keep watchful eye, a producer we're excited to see evolve in the years to come. He is a meticulous and talented winemaker, making wines with precision, focus and reflective of their underlying terroir. If you love the etherial pungency of Volnay but are looking for something to enjoy on a casual Sunday afternoon, this is the bottle for you.
