About Hand Picked Burgundy

Our aim is to be a reliable source of good quality red burgundy that is ready to drink.

We believe that the vast majority of burgundy offered for sale by traditional merchants is far too young – frequently disappointing and certainly not truly ready to “give of its best”. If they do offer older wines, many merchants provide only a list of wines, without commentary or tasting notes. By its nature, burgundy is complex – making it difficult to know what wines are going to taste like – let alone which are better (or less good), and when they will drink well.

So, we try to offer ONLY WINES THAT ARE READY TO DRINK – meaning typically wines in their first 2 or 3 years of life (to drink on the fruit) or wines that are at least eight years old.

This is backed up by our own score wherever tasted, together with those of “burgundy experts” such as Allen Meadows, John Gilman, Jasper Morris, Steven Tanzer and Clive Coates.

We hope that this helps you to choose with confidence and drink with pleasure – but we are always pleased to provide personal advice if you are exploring burgundy for the first time, buying wine as a gift, or looking for something special.
