"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 2017's !

The Wine Advocate

Aromas of sweet red berries, orange rind and currant leaf introduce the 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Les Saussilles, a medium to full-bodied wine with a supple, velvety attacker's, a deep, concentrated mid-palate and a long, tangy finish. The cool mesoclimate and old vines show in this cuvée's intensity and bright line of acidity.
