To the proverbial question, if you could take just one wine to a desert island, what would it be, many zealous wine lovers answer instantaneously—Burgundy!

Unfortunately, Burgundy wines have become so expensive that it is hard to find good value wines except outside the “Cote d’Or”, in the most southern part, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Maconnais. In those 2 sub-regions of Burgundy, young, talented and committed wine growers have pushed their wines to new heights while respecting the earth, its ecology and its sustainability.  Appellations such as Givry, Mercurey, Pouilly Fuissé and others offer Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with finesse, complexity and the capacity to age for many years.
