Domaine Antonin Guyon, Gevrey-Chambertin (Burgundy, France) “La Justice” 2017

($85, Taub Family Selections):  Domaine Antonin Guyon is a name you can trust.  They make incredibly consistent wines from Grand Cru to their village wines, such as this one, that lies on the wrong side of the road.  La Justice is one of the rare vineyards that lies on the eastern side of the RN974, the main north-south road in Burgundy, to be awarded a village designation instead of just a regional appellation.  Its breeding is immediately apparent with its finesse and persistence.  Not a boisterous wine, it conveys a delicate savory character and a long, explosive finish.  It’s one of the 2017s that’s approachable — really charming — now.
