Burgundy Under the Radar

Aware that some Burgundy lovers might point out that they have known some of the growers included in this report since they produced their first vintage back in 1903, nevertheless, Burgundy remains a vast ocean of growers beyond the most famous names. Nothing gives me more pleasure than foraging for winemakers unknown to myself, or those that I have never visited. There are innumerable “under-the-radar” growers in Burgundy, and I use that term knowing that some oenophile’s radars are better than others. There is always one more grower that you have to visit around the corner. When it comes to Burgundy there is no full stop.

Vinous Favorites

2017 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon	($16.00) 89

2017 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon, 89 points

A rush of super-ripe dark cherry, tobacco, licorice and plum give the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Foxglove its racy personality. Voluptuous in the glass, with silky tannins and soft contours, it will be impossible to resist upon release. One of the best values in California Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)
