Value red Burgundy to drink now

25 March 2024

Four producers across five ACs, all under £40 and drinking beautifully

“Value Burgundy” can sometimes seem something of an oxymoron. In reality, if you know where to look, a raft of up-and-coming producers are driving up the quality of the region’s gateway wines, with more established names increasingly matching their efforts via their less vaunted bottlings. And wouldn’t you just know it – our buying team has dug deep to uncover five great-value reds which have just begun to blossom and represent brilliant drinking right now.

Complementing the domaine’s Bourgogne rouge, this collection also features Bachelet Monnot’s Maranges 1er Cru, made with a proportion of whole bunches and aged in 25% new oak. A truly fantastic iteration of this often-overlooked appellation, this is a complex wine, its earthy undergrowth notes adding dimension before a clear and vivid finish. It’s joined by Robert Groffier’s fully ready Passetoutgrains, whose richness and depth belies its modest classification, with Gamay’s saltiness adding bite to the ripe, juicy Pinot to deliver a Passetoutgrains of tremendous class.

We’ve also included a Marsannay from the deservedly heralded Bruno Clair, along with a Pierre Boisson red Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Pierre Boisson is based in Meursault and is better known for its whites from the eponymous appellation, yet its red cuvées harness the same vibrancy, intensity and electricity, not least this inclusion.
