If it were Gevrey ....

Imagine buying a Bourgogne Rouge from one of Burgundy’s greatest domaines and finding out that—not only was the wine made from half-century-old vines—but until twenty years ago the vines were classified as Gevrey-Chambertin.

That is exactly what you’ll get in Domaine Joseph Roty’s Cuvée de Pressonnier, one of the great hidden secrets of the Côte d’Or.

Eleven Generations of Wisdom

Despite its incredibly modest price, the 2014 Pressonnier is the culmination of the Rotys’ eleven generations of winemaking history. And, like virtually everything else from the Roty stable, it is made from seriously ancient vines.

In fact, Pressonnier was planted a half a century ago. And as recently as the 1990s, the Pressioner vines were classified as Gevrey-Chambertin. These are just two of the reasons Pressonnier towers above its peers and is one of the great bargains of Côtes de Nuits red Burgundy.

These facts are not lost on Burgundy insiders, who know this to be one of the region’s greatest values—offering the higher-level purity and depth you’d expect from a blue chip domaine like Roty. Given this, Roty’s Pressonnier has a passionate following among American Burgundy lovers, who snap up every bottle and case they can find on release.
