Offers | Burghound recommends | Outstanding Côte de Beaune 2018

Allen Meadows is the undisputed king of Burgundy critics; his knowledge encyclopaedic, his breadth of tasting each vintage unrivalled. So when he showers a wine or domaine with praise, and the wines cost from £29 per bottle on the table, it really is worth sitting up and taking notice.

Meadows recently released his compelling   Burghound report on the Côte de Beaune 2018 reds, He says, “I would strongly suggest that when the 2018s hit the market… you buy a few and see for yourself what you think. If you choose well, I believe that you will be impressed.”

We are therefore delighted to offer three of the exceptional domaines we work with – Rapet, Comte Armand and Bouley – all have received glowing write ups, impressive scores and several of his elusive “top value” or “outstanding” ratings.
