Might be tempted to pop the first of my Le Grappin Savignys this weekend in that case.

Berthaut-Gerbert’s Fixin Le Crais also fits into the 2015 red burgundy that’s ready category. I have unashamedly drunk my whole case already…
 
Love the Gachot-Monot Cote de Nuits Villages as a good, honest, does what it says on the tin, kind of burgundy. That said the 2020 we tried this week was 14.5% and had more than a passing resemblance to a southern Rhone. Keeping my fingers crossed that it settles down a bit (actually a lot !).

I opted for the Chaillots* & Sans Soufre CdNV (& Chambolle villages + NSG Poulets).

* Best value red from the Côte d'Or??
 
I have a bottle of the 2019 Sans Soufre to try - labelled by hand with a marker pen !

Did you try the 20s at the domaine ? Wednesday's nights - from bottle - was really worrying.
 
I’ve tasted the ‘20s from barrel last year & bottle this. (Damien was busy in vineyards, so no 2021 barrel sample). One or two were ‘big’ but I’m unsure which. I always reckon it’s worth me paying the extra for the Chaillots.
