The wines of Henri Jayer (1922 - 2006) produced from his tiny parcels in and around Vosne-Romanee are acclaimed as the best Burgundy that one could find. The mystique is further enhanced by the miniscule number of bottles of his wines that is available on either the auction or retail market.
Wines of Chateau Pavie
Just in case the dinner conversation becomes stale, this controversial wine should liven up proceedings. Pavie is located to the east of the town of Saint Emilion. This picturesque town is some 45 kilometers east of the city of Bordeaux and across the Dordogne River (part of the Gironde estuary).
