I usually don't blog on my own wines, but I couldn't help myself with this one. 

Camille Giroud, Gevery-Chambertin, Les Crais, 2006. 

Everything you want in a Burgundy. For reals. It has meat, it has depth and concentration of sweet cherry fruit, it has high acidity, and moderate alcohol, all deliciously balanced. I love showing this wine, because then I can come home and drink the rest of it. 

Crais means chalk, and as is typical for those Burgundians, the soil where the vines grow have a high percentage of chalk. Good permeability, good porosity. Perfect soil for high quality wine.

Cafe Stella in Silverlake for around $100.
