Well, they are going from “F me” prices to “no way” prices.


I am being too flippant, it might trickle down.

And petits monts


And Clos des Mouches…along with Chassagne 1er Morgeot.

Griotte isn’t bad either


I think the meursault blanc is lovely

And the Baudes, and the Mouches, and the village Chambolle, and the Petit Monts, and…

there’s a reason Drouhin is my biggest holding in Burgundy.


Another wise observation from the article in my opinion:

Personnalité respectée et appréciée de la Bourgogne, Frédéric Drouhin a présidé l’Union des Maisons de Vins de Bourgogne et le Bureau Interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne (BIVB). Lorsqu’il parle, généralement, on l’écoute. Et que dit-il encore ? “Les prix se sont envolés au moment où des producteurs bourguignons fermaient leurs portes aux visiteurs, faute de vin à vendre. Cette situation altère l’image de la Bourgogne, qui a toujours été construite sur la qualité de l’accueil.” Pour faire face à cette situation, la maison a décidé de baisser les prix de 15% sur son millésime 2022.

Google Translate (emphasis added):

A respected and appreciated personality from Burgundy, Frédéric Drouhin chaired the Union of Burgundy Wine Houses and the Interprofessional Burgundy Wine Bureau (BIVB). When he speaks, people generally listen to him. And what else does he say? “Prices soared at a time when Burgundian producers closed their doors to visitors, due to a lack of wine to sell. This situation alters the image of Burgundy, which has always been built on the quality of the welcome.” To deal with this situation, the house has decided to lower prices by 15% for its 2022 vintage.

It’s not just the soaring prices… which arguably is not under their control… but also a possible change in the public’s perception of the low-key, small family Burgundy winemaking vibe, that could really wreck some long term damage if not corrected. Again: in my opinion.


And the Griottes-Chambertin
