The Mysteries of Burgundy

From Chablis to the Côte d'Or to Beaujolais, Finding the Best Wines of this Fabled Region is Always a Challenge
Matt Kramer
From the Print Edition:
Ron Perelman, Spring 95

(continued from page 9)

Domaine Leroy
(Corton-Charlemagne, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses; among the greatest, expensive)

Domaine du Duc de Magenta
(Chassagne-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses; long-term contract with Louis Jadot, great quality)

Domaine Pierre Matrot/Joseph Matrot
(Meursault; austere, no apparent oak, very fine, good buy)

Domaine Michel Niellon
(Chassagne-Montrachet; one of the greatest, hard to find)

Domaine Paul Pernot
(Puligny-Montrachet; rich, intense, newly arrived in the United States)

Domaine Ramonet
(Chassagne-Montrachet; famous, very great, expensive and rare)

Domaine Guy Roulot
(Meursault; many vineyards, fine quality)

Domaine Étienne Sauzet
(Puligny-Montrachet; superb, austere, expensive, rare)


The Côte Chalonnaise is without question the most unappreciated, unexplored source of good red (Pinot Noir) and white (Chardonnay) Burgundies. For everyday drinking--or even better--look for wines from Bouzeron, Rully, Mercurey, Givry and Montagny.
