A Note from Sergio

On its surface, it can feel counterintuitive that a stressful environment creates great wines. It would seem to follow that an easy-going, perfect growing year would give producers the best raw materials for great wines. And this is certainly true. Take the 2013 Super Tuscans, for example; that classic, textbook growing year was free of stress, and it led to a benchmark vintage. However, grape vines are, in some ways, a lot like people. Presented with the right challenges, they rise to great heights, fulfilling their promise in creating lasting testaments to their environments and their essential natures. In other words, sometimes a stress is a good thing for wine, and this is exactly the case for 2015 Burgundy, a vintage that's shaping up to be epic.
My heart belongs to Italy, but that doesn't mean I don't have room to love French wines--especially the 2015 vintage from Burgundy. Today, I'm very happy to present more than 60 of these recent '15 Burgundy releases, all at special pricing. Some wines are in stock, others are pre-arrival, but all of them were handpicked by me and my staff. You'll find both white and red Burgundies, coming from both large, famous vignerons and smaller, under-the-radar "insider" estates. Burgundy lovers are a unique breed. They tend to know their wines, and their ready to debate the finer points of terroir, elevage, and vintage variation. One thing that every Burghead will agree on is this: the 2015 Burgundies are not to be missed. They're the product of just enough stress, and they are stupendous.
