Get to Know This Product
I can understand that Sylvian Langoureau may not be a household name for you – yet. He has now, for us at Waterford, become our go-to producer for artfully crafted white burgundy, that drink well young and also mellow into their own as they age in the mid-term (here, we would not say long-term YET, because we keep drinking our entire allocation before its made its 10th birthday!).
Sylvain is a quiet, articulate man of the earth who has been running his Domaine since 1989. Everything is produced by hand, by him, and the results are outstanding – lovely, yummy, luscious white burgundies that have something for everyone: fruit, spice, minerality, weight through the mid-palate and vibrancy. His 2020’s are classic and he was thrilled with them. When I was tasting with him at his winery, we both agreed that there is a very fine filigree that runs through this vintage, and that even though production is very small this year, I could tell the twinkle in his eye was that of a proud father, having coached his children to excellence.
He has also, graciously and amazingly enough, towed the line on prices. He has kept them low throughout all the years Waterford has sold his wine out of loyalty to each other. Just take a look at the price – $64.99 is where most producers’ BASIC Puligny-Montrachets start. This is a heck of a deal on a premier cru. Don’t miss our small allocation, it will go fast.
He is also one of the few producers who bottles in magnums for us. We get tons of requests for magnums every year and we always sell out. So here is your shot at scoring some now, at a great price.
