2009 Red Burgundy Just Landed at Princeton Corkscrew -- Believe the Hype!


Domaine Cornu-Camus



Burgundy, France

  The Secrets of a Legendary Hill

A True Value
Corton Hill

The imposing hill of Corton and the grand cru vineyard Corton-Charlemagne produces some of the most extraordinary white wine in Burgundy. These wines are certainly world-class but do not offer any terrific values. However, the savvy Burgundy consumer CAN find extraordinary value on the hill of Corton but those values are rarely found in white wine. Here the values are in Pinot Noir, most often in the rocky, iron-rich soils of Pernand-Vergelesses, a village that clings to the western side of this legendary hill.


Dynamic Pinot
Pinot Noir Grapes

Pierre Cornu and his family have been tending vines in Pernand, Hautes-Côtes de Beaune and Hautes-Côtes de Nuits since the 13th century. For countless generations, the perfectly positioned Cornu vineyard holdings have provided terrific Pinot Noir for the region's négociants and now, for this dynamic estate, Domaine Cornu-Camus.


Believe the Hype
CC PV front

The hype surrounding 2009 Burgundy is completely valid. The fruit in these wines is extraordinary. So juicy, so fresh -- I've been drinking this 2009 Pernand-Vergelesses almost every night since it arrived a week ago. This racy Pinot Noir is off the charts aromatically, featuring high-toned aromas of black cherry and violets. Make sure you serve it in a big glass; a little oxygen really gets this wine going. This is concentrated, vibrant Burgundy, tailor-made for roasted poultry, salmon or mushroom dishes. I've been waiting for months for my allocation of D'Artagnan duck breasts. They've finally arrived, and every one of those delectable magrets will be served with a bottle of Cornu-Camus Pernand-Vergelesses 2009.


For this week only, enjoy a 10% discount starting on the first bottle and a 15% discount on full cases. (No further discounts apply).
