Our liaison on a scouting mission through Burgundy had agreed to a brief tasting at his neighbor’s winery. We assumed this was a situation where the proprietor had heard there were buyers coming and the nature of our visit was a matter of courtesy. We had no reason to believe otherwise when we descended into the tasting cellar, a mostly haphazard collection of winemaking equipment and a floor comprised of wood chips and stand-up spit buckets. This was clearly not a space designed to impress guests. And then we tasted the wine…
We have visited countless cellars in Burgundy over the years, each with their own quirks and charms. Few have delivered the goods out of the gate like Domaine Cornu. What we thought was going to be a quick hello turned into a nearly two-hour session of tasting, spitting (and then not spitting) and negotiating allocations. You will be thrilled at this discovery, as these wines have never before been exported to the U.S. Get on them before the wine geeks and press do.
