2019 Côte-Rôtie, Bernard Burgaud

The domaine only makes one wine, and they throw everything they’ve got at it. It is a blend of two parcels from the Côte Blonde and two from the Côte Brune. It is powerful but balanced, with plenty of gusto on the mid-palate. The nose is laden with aromas of violets and tapenade, smoke and spice. Its silky tannins and sappy acidity let the sweet fruit core slowly unfurl. This is a paradigm for Côte-Rôtie’s capacity for purity.

2019 Côte-Rôtie, Bernard Burgaud
Bernard Burgaud

Bernard Burgaud took over his family’s domaine at the time of his father’s early death in 1985. He assembled a few more choice lieu-dits, though it remains a mere four hectares in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie. Bernard studied viticulture in Beaune, and has maintained a more traditional approach to winemaking, with an emphasis on longevity. He was also ahead of his time in the region when he gradually introduced small amounts of new oak, foresight which led to more complex, ageworthy wines.
