THE REVIEW

Finding a good red Burgundy for under $30 a bottle is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Finding one for under $20 is just as impossible - until now!
    What makes Domaine Devillard such a value, besides its quality, is where the Devillard family sources their fruit. The Pinot Noir in this particular bottling comes from the Domaine's three estates in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Mercury and Givry. Each of those bottlings individually sell for $75, $50 and $50, respectively, and it shows through in the depth of this wonderful Bourgogne. This is the proverbial "needle in a haystack."
    Le Ranard has incredible finesse that shows notes of black pepper, spices and red cherry fruit. Elegant and pure, the wine exhibits notes of balsamic and smooth sweet tannins. A great value indeed, this wonderful Bourgogne rouge can be enjoyed now and over the next five years. From roasted chicken to fish, this Pinot Noir should be your go-to for all year round. Enjoy!Read More »
