A Note from Sergio
Today's Featured Sections Include:
Last Thursday, I devoted the eLetter to the 2015 Burgundies from Château de la Maltroye. Today, I'm turning it over to the superb Gevrey-Chambertin wines of Domaine Gallois and Domaine René Leclerc. Never before have I chosen to run two back-to-back eLetters that featured only French wines--and not even a single Italian wine--but the 2015 vintage of red Burgundies is just that compelling. I don't want to take the chance that my clients could miss out.
Domaine Gallois is exactly the kind of estate I love: it's small, family owned, incredibly earnest, and it makes extraordinarily good wines that are under the radar of many wine-lovers and below the price point of most other producers. Domaine René Leclerc is a bit bigger and a bit better known, but like Gallois, it's family owned, and its winemakers, Philippe Leclerc and his dad, René, are devoted to making wines that are traditional and delicious. I've picked four Gevrey-Chambertin wines from each of these estates, and you who love that Burgundy appellation will want them all.
