"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 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets was also showing well, offering up pretty aromas of dried flowers, orange rind, red berries and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, tensile and elegant, with a tight-knit core, chalky structuring tannins and a juicy line of acidity. As I noted earlier this year, this parcel was planted in 1962 with the domaine's finest genetic material and always sees the most whole cluster fermentation of any in the range—this year, 50%
