Henri Jouan makes fantastic wines across the board and doesn’t seem to get much recognition. Gevrey Echezeaux, Chambolle AOC, Clos Sorbe and Clos Clos St Denis are all cellar worthy imo.

This region rejected Robert Parker, and his points system. Hell, they even sued him.

If you want points, you’ll do far better elsewhere. It’s just not what makes Burgundy interesting.
