2021 Domaine Gérard Raphet Bourgogne Passetoutgrains, Burgundy, France


Aromas of red cherry and plum skin, orange rind, cranberry, brown spice all blossom under a peppery, woodsy ceiling. Flavors of pomegranate, blood oranges, cherries, and earth follow on the palate, and the result is a flavor that’s so nostalgic of what Burgundian wines used to taste like a decade ago.

There are 9 units left in stock.



The wines of Gérard Raphet are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity. This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the attraction and seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines.


Indeed of all our Burgundy partners, Raphet inspires the most emotion when trying to describe what exactly makes these wines so captivating. Raphet Burgundy surprises and delights; it opens the possibilities of what great, old-vine Burgundy can do, and just how intimate and special that experience can be.

No Raphet ever went to enology school; winemaking has been a family tradition that has been passed from father to son, and now daughter, through four generations. There’s no pontificating, no philosophy—just the rhythm of a day that starts before sunrise, the years of history absorbed in each gnarled, 100-year-old vine, and the handful of barrels stashed in a dark cellar underneath the family home.

Gérard took over the domaine in 2005; today his daughter Marion also helps out in the cellar and fields. Gérard is modest, almost shy, preferring the majesty of his old-vine Pinot Noir to “do the talking.” And talk it does, from the exuberant aromas of young wine to the suave silk of cellared bottles, some 10 to 20 to even 30 years on. Our cellars have a special corner for Raphet Burgundy, and so should yours.
