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 offer ONLY WINES THAT ARE READY TO DRINK – meaning typically wines from the 2000 vintage or earlier. We TASTE EVERY WINE that we offer to ensure that it is of good quality and good value for money. Then we RATE EVERY WINE on the three dimensions of fruit, flavour and body to give you an idea what it will taste like. This is backed up by our own detailed tasting note, together with those of “burgundy experts” such as Allen Meadows and Clive Coates.

We hope that this enables 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.
