The ONLY Wine of the event that the Underground Wineletter rated EXTRAORDINARY PLUS!
The Grand Jours de Bourgogne is staged every two years and for a week allows all of the producers of Burgundy to showcase their wines. There are well over 1000 Burgundies available for tasting from humble appellations up to the finest Grand Crus. The roll call of producers is nothing short of mind boggling.
The Underground Wineletter has just published their tasting results and one wine shone through from the 359 wines they tasted.
The 2012 Echezeaux from Domaine du Clos Frantin was their very top wine. It was the only wine to receive an EXTRAORDINARY PLUS rating. You can read their article by clicking here. A number of you will probably remember long ago when the Underground Wineletter was largely responsible for discovering such icons as Henri Jayer and Coche-Dury.
We have managed to increase our allocation substantially and at the present time have a nice allowance of this super wine available. But it won't last! If you would like to secure some please act quickly. The normal price is $389.00 a bottle, Pre Arrival Price is $330.50 a bottle. Buy a Case of 12 Bottles and save an additional 5%.
