All Burgundy, white and red wines, including wines from Beaujolais, that are not already discounted, which is indicated by saying 'NET' on the sign.
Today until the end of the day Thursday June 25th, take an additional 5% off the purchase of any Burgundy wines, up to 11 bottles. This discount DOES NOT count in addition to other quantity discounts.
Burgundy is one of the most historic and important wine growing areas in the world, emulated by growers and winemakers throughout the world. Very few places in the world are considered equally superior in their production of both white wines (Chardonnay) and red wines (Pinot Noir), yet Studies of their techniques, vines and terroir have been going on for centuries, examining every square foot of the most fabled sites to try and determine the source of the magic they possess. As a result they are among the most prized and sought after in the world, and because of their fairly limited nature also run among the most expensive. Values can be very hard to come by, especially when the quality and character of vintages can swing so much year to year, so it can be very intimidating for even fairly experienced customers to explore with much confidence. Hopefully this anniversary special will encourage you to strike out and explore by either dipping into some character-filled but fairly priced Bourgogne level wines, or perhaps getting a special Village designate for a special occasion or cellaring.
While most people are familiar with the main parts of Burgundy-Cote d'Or, Cote Challonaise, and the Maconnaise- many don't realize that Beaujolais is connected to Burgundy by geography, sitting adjacent to the edge of the Macon. The Gamay grape was for many generations planted intermittently throughout Burgundy, but over time lost favor in the more prestigious areas. The unique change of soils in Beaujolais give the grape more distinct flavor than anywhere else, but fortunately the worldwide demand for the better quality Crus has not driven the pricing nearly as high as the neighbors to the North. A different wine to be sure, but culturally and geographically close enough to Burgundy for the sake of inclusion in this special deal.
