The best of Red Burgundy around 25 years of age is a sweet spot that seems to deliver consistently from top Premier and Grand Crus. Today we take a close look at two stellar vintages from the early 1990's from some of our favorite domaines.

1990 is a vintage that only grows more fabled as each year passes and the wines reveal more layers. Hot and dry conditions in June and July were met with August rains providing much needed relief. Harvest conditions in September were under blue skies with cool nights giving ideal conditions. The quality of fruit brought in from Gevrey Chambertin to Volnay was exceptional. The results are dark-fruited, powerful wines with soft tannins. Many from 1990 have just begun to enter prime drinking in the last several years. 

1993 is a vintage celebrated by Burgundy enthusiasts who've been won over by the classic style where aromatics and brightness of fruit are emphasized. Although the wines are highlighted by their energy they show full depth and very rich color thanks to the thick skins of the vintage. The combination has allowed these to age at a glacial pace, and are now in a beautiful spot.
