A Budget Burgundy of Harmony & Grace


In his latest post, David Bloch describes a rarity, a great bottle of budget Burgundy.

2005 Clos Salomon, Givry 1er Cru Clos Salomon
Unquestionably a wine that transcends its modest placement in the hierarchy of Burgundy.  I paid $30 for this wine when it entered the local DC market.  This was a WOW wine.  Tannins have melted away.  A sweet-fruited and floral nose. The wine has gorgeous ripe wild strawberry and cranberry notes.  Nice and spicy.  Some incense on the nose. A little rhubarb too.  A vein of minerality that keeps the wine really fresh from start to an unexpectedly long finish. Well stored bottles will last for another decade and will provide some great bargain priced drinking.
