"The disarmingly modest Thierry Glantenay is emerging as one of the Côte de Beaune's most exciting producers of red wine." -William Kelley, The Wine Advocate Perhaps the Glantenays are not well known because not much was bottled and sold under the family name - for three main reasons; Bernard’s reputation as a fastidious farmer, the wealth of his ‘terroir’ – Caillerets, Clos des Chênes, Santenots, Rugiens, Folatières… and the fact that they had mostly old vines. The ‘courtiers’ that often came knocking had very good money to offer for the wine and Bernard found it hard to refuse the likes of Dominique Laurent, Lalou Bize Leroy and Louis Jadot. In fact, this year, Domique Laurent came knocking for a barrel of Pommard Rugiens this year but Thierry chose not to sell. Don't miss these 2019's !

The latest rendition of a cuvée that goes from strength to strength, Glantenay's old vine 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Saussilles offers up notions of Griotte cherries, cassis, potpourri and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, racy and concentrated, with superb depth at the core and a saline finish, it's well worth seeking out. As I've written before, this climate takes its name from the Combe Saussilles, a shallow ravine that divides the communes of Beaune and Pommard—and, importantly, an air drainage for cool breezes from the Hautes-Côtes.
