Picked up an A. Morot Beaune "les Aigrots" 2002 on sale for $30 (down from $42) last weekend. I'm not that familiar with Cote d'Or Burgs, and know even less about this producer and premier cru. Any advice on what to expect and when best to drink? Thanks in advance. And if any mid-Atlantickers are headed to Ocean City MD for the wine festival this weekend, check out the sale at Late Nite Liquors on Coastal Highway and 68th St., where I picked up this Morot Beaune, a Donnhoff Riesling '04 for $19, a David Bruce Sonoma PN '03 for $21, and a Lecciaia Brunello Riserva '99 for $32--all darn good buys, in my book. Despite the unassuming name, this store has a super selection, from under-$10 finds to all five First Growths. They could use more Italians--but then, who couldn't?
