2019 Edmond Cornu & Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune Rouge

This is one of the greatest Red Burgundy values you’ll see this year. It comes from the kind of family-run, farmstead domaine that defines—and distinguishes—Burgundy. We are big fans of Edmond Cornu: If you want to experience the most traditionally styled expressions of Burgundy Pinot Noir, these are the wines.

The Cornu family has been producing wine for over a century, and bottling under their own label since the 1950s, in the sleepy hamlet of Ladoix, where the Côte de Nuits gives way to the Côte de Beaune. Cornu is as steadfastly “old school” a Burgundy estate as we have encountered, and their wines are often mercilessly closed when young, but if you stash them away (for five to 20 years, depending on the vintage and cuvée), they are magically transformed.

The current release of the 2019’s are just waking up and entering that peak drinking age. It is worth noting that Cornu holds their wines back before release longer than other Burgundy houses. 

The wine reveals a medium garnet with slight brick orange reflections moving out to the rim. Once exposed to some air—I recommend starting with a 30-minute decant—aromas will leap from the glass. Red and black cherry, dried red currant, goji berry, hibiscus, damp mushroom, warm spices, crushed rock, wet leather, and spicy forest floor tones carry through to the medium-bodied palate. It’s got the kind of seductive perfume and layered depth that’ll keep you returning to swirl, sniff, and savor, so take it slow and watch it unfold over the course of a great meal. Smoky, heady, elegant, structured—this feels like a classic, soulful Corton without the price! Enjoy!
