Do you love Pinot Noir, preferably from Burgundy, but despair at the prices? No need to panic, because there are alternatives to the big names. These arise mainly when there is a generational change in wineries with good sites, whose wines were previously supplied to the trade and where the youngsters are now bottling their own wines. In these cases, it is still possible to get hold of well-known Villages appellations or Premiers Crus at reasonable prices.
However, climate change is also increasingly favouring the formerly cooler sites: especially the Hautes Côtes above the Côte de Beaune or Nuits-St-Georges. Or the lesser-known places such as Santenay or St. Romain, but also those that are summarised under the name Côte de Nuits Villages. This also applies to Chablis and the Beaujolais Crus.
Willi Klinger shows you 10 of his most exciting finds.
