B-21 Top Recommendation
The best of Burgundy – as most of you who love it and have visited the Cote will attest – often emanate from the humblest cellars. So it is with the striking wines of Domaine Philippe Collotte of Marsannay. Tall, quiet, terribly humble, it would be years before this perfectionist of vine and terroir would be discovered in the suburbs of Dijon. Marsannay's greatest producer had been bottling phenomenal, complex, concentrated wines for years, but until my buddy Peter Weygandt arrived, these succulent cuvees rarely left Europe. Thanks to that meeting – and my tasting of these beauties with Peter – you're now enjoying top vintages of Philippe's finest. Philippe's is the standard-bearer. Fans of Philippe, fans of Marsannay, will love this collection; newcomers will be thrilled at the discovery.
