Restaurant F and B, Beaune

Eating in Burgundy can be tough after a while. Beaune’s best restaurants are expensive and can also be a bit stuffy. Restaurant F and B is the perfect place to enjoy an informal lunch or dinner without skimping on quality.

2012 Jaffurs Syrah ($27) 91 points

2012 Jaffurs Syrah, 91 points

The 2012 Syrah bursts from the glass with dark red cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and sweet spices. Ample and juicy on the palate, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years.

1982 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino

I keep thinking that the 1982 Monfortino is perhaps on the slight end of its optimal drinking window, but then I run into bottles like this that are simply magnificent.
