I love magnums, but these seem rather too expensive.
As a guide, domaine Corton-Charlemagne starts at about €75** these days, and you can find some very fine versions under €100. Those sought-after wines such as chez Bouchard Père or Henri Boillot are closer €150, so there’s still a very significant premium here. I assume that DRC’s first vintage (2019, ex the Bonneau du Martray vineyards) will be priced higher though. I expect about €300-400 from the domaine’s representatives – let’s see.
*As always, these swiss franc prices are delivered but lack the 7.7% Swiss VAT…
**Add about 10% for the price in Swiss francs

my thanks to the vigneron(ne)s of puligny, week 28 2020

Of-course not all based in Puligny, but all with vines in Puligny 🙂

My July report will be looking at the important vineyards of that village – many more visits to do over the next 2-3 weeks – but this week with the help of Jadot, Drouhin, Bouzereau, Terres de Velle and Sauzet…

Puligny - week 1

The Finest Wines of Burgundy

A portable, hard-wearing guide to the Côte d’Or plus 90 producers of note and their best wines. Truth be told, there should have been 150 great producers – but not in the 320 pages that were prescribed.
It’s probably time to start working on a new one – eh?
