Since 1989, Jean-Marc Burgaud and his wife Cristine have farmed 19 hectares of gamay vines in Beaujolais, primarily in Morgon and Beaujolais Villages, as well as one hectare in Régnié. Although not certified, all the farming at Burgaud is done organically and by hand, and he has not used chemicals in the vineyards in over 10 years. Lantignié seems to be in line to become the 11th village to achieve Cru status, and this wine should provide all the evidence necessary to make it happen. Substantial, delineated, forceful, and truly distinctive, we'd love to see how this develops over the course of the next 5-10 years, but who has the patience? Enjoy this non-Nouveau this holiday season with creamy cheeses and roasty, toasty things.
