|2007: "The last shipment of the delicious 2007 de Suremain Rully Burgundy has docked, but be aware it never lasts very long. Many of you already know that Eric de Suremain has got a talent for making wine that far out-strips its appellation.
Every time I have a shimmering glass of Suremain's Rully, I wonder why everybody is not incurably attached to French Pinot Noir. "Why, there's nothing quite like it," I say to myself as the swirl of berries fills my mouth. I've tasted it from every country in world, but Burgundy's is still the most exquisite expression of the grape type.
You already know my Burgundy philosophy: find the passionate, talented growers in lesser-known appellations that will deliver all the Pinot Noir character without the big price tag. Sure, invest in a few bottles of the hallowed ones, but keep the Rully on hand by the case to drink as often as you like. Rully is a Chalonnaise wine which is part of Burgundy, just south of the more famous Cote de Beaune.
