Here’s our annual allocation for the new vintage from Chambolle master Francois Bertheau. One of the most elegant producers in the village and one who epitomizes the grace and femininity of the wines of Chambolle. As the old adage goes, the deepness of color doesn’t equate to quality in Burgundy, and these ruby red masterpieces have that old school knack of putting on weight in the bottle while retaining their terroir transparency and lightness of touch. The 2018's are shaping up to be a more serious vintage than the elegant 2017's. It’s also lovely to hear that Francois again had an average harvest this vintage. Here’s a first look at the range all at what should be USA low pricing since we work directly with the Domaine!
