This domaine is now very much one of the big names of the Côte de Beaune following a string of wonderful vintages, albeit some of them frustratingly small. Alex has run the domaine for a good twenty years already (he looks too young!) and he has a wonderfully confident ease about him and the way he approaches his winemaking. There is little doubt that he is really at the top of his game at the moment and these 2020s come highly recommended.
Over the years, he has expanded the domaine through one or two judicious fruit contracts, which helps give a very complete look to the range, as well as providing some much-needed extra wine. Following on from the tiny volumes produced last year with the 2019 vintage, there is thankfully a bit more wine this year and the quality is exceptionally high. The wines are bright and lively with excellent focus and delineation, suggesting a terrific evolution over the next decade.
Please place your orders by 5pm Thursday, January 13th.
We hope to finish allocations by the end of the week.
