Domaine Fabrice Vigot, Vosne-Romanée “Les Chalandins”

Domaine Vigot is run by Fabrice and Christine Vigot, who founded the estate in 1990 by combining the landholdings of their respective families. Most notably, Fabrice’s father worked with the famed Dr. Georges Mugneret in the 1960s, looking after some of their most prized vineyards in a sharecropping agreement that lasted through 2016. Meaning, the Vigot family played a significant role in the creation of Burgundy’s most legendary, expensive, and sought-after wines—those of Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg. 

Bring a golf ball and driver to Vigot’s parcel in “Les Chalandins,” aim due north, and a solid swing will land you in Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot. Aim southwest and a prime Tiger might be able to reach the fringe of Grand Cru Romanée-St-Vivant. The Vigots farm their 65-80-year-old vines with organic principles in the vineyard with a recent focus on biodynamics. In 2019, all of their grapes were hand-harvested and partially de-stemmed, leaving around half of the clusters intact during the native-yeast fermentation. The resulting wine spent 18 months in Burgundian barrels, 50% new. Bottling occurred without fining or filtering. 

Vigot’s 2019 “Chalandins” is loaded with intoxicating perfumes: purple and red flowers, smoked cherry, pomegranate, ripe raspberry, goji berry, white tea, black peppercorn, and a savory herb-spice blend. It reveals polished structure, delicate soil character, and luxurious heft on a medium-bodied palate that promises 10-15 years of flattering evolution. It’s hard to imagine any other $100 bottle of Vosne topping this level of quality and complexity.

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France


Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France


Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
