Parisian caviste / wine writer / wine educator and distinguished Master of Wine student Jérémy Cukierman unveils the mysteries behind one of the most sought-after iconic cuvées of Burgundy.
Quite frankly, not that many people have the authority and the tasting experience to pertinently comment on such a rare wine as Henri Jayer Cros-Parantoux. Jérémy Cukierman is clearly one of afew, as his well documented paper, recently posted on his blog "into the Wine with Jeremy Cukierman".
As Jeremy explains, the greatness of le "Cros-Parantoux is the fruit of Henri Jayer's vision, his skillful rendition in the bottle of a somewhat apparently unremarkable 1 ha plot in the blessed vineyards of Vosne-Romanée.
The wine itself is not unlike its place of birth: rocky, austere, pure… a concept of a wine more than just a wine.
The notoriety and the very limited offer have consistently placed le Cros-Parantoux at the very top of the most expansive bottles traded among professionals or sold at auctions.
Take vintage 1982 offered by Vintage & Cie: the following survey by Winesearcher clearly illustrates the incredible market value of Cros-Parantoux.
