Seconding the Fourrier Gevrey VV. I also love the Aux Echezeaux. Both toeing the line of $100 depending on your sources but they are delicious, complete wines that don’t shut down in the same way that a lot of burgundy does.

I've found it tends to run in the ~$60 range. At the price it's a no brainer for me. The vineyard is close to Vosne and it shows.
