Pierre Bitouzet, 'Corton Maréchaudes' Grand Cru 1992

Vintages are a bit like fads. Many come on strong but fade away fast, like face tattoos. A few defy the odds and outlive their moment beyond all expectations, like Polaroids and bucket hats. 1992 Red Burgundy is just like that.

It was a vintage that the critics panned upon release and marketed very much as a “drink now or hold your peace.” Well, they were wrong.  The wines weren’t forwardly expressive and fruity, but in the decades since have evolved into a fresh, floral and almost tea-like in flavor: in short, everything that is unique to Red Burgundy.

The good thing about “drink now” vintages like 1992 is that most passed them up back in the day, allowing us to offer a delicious and aged Grand Cru Red Burgundy for prices like this.

Things we actually said...

“Aged Red Burgundy is something most of us don’t get to try that often, and that’s a shame. The ‘off-vintages’ are often a good place to start– they were taken for granted upon release but sometimes have more to say in the end than flashier vintages that got all the awards up-front. The moral: not all great wines are great from the get-go.”

— Danny Roosevelt, Parcelle Wine
