  • A great Mercurey! Lots of red fruits on the nose, big volume of berry fruit on the palate too, concentrated and intense, with nice purity of fruit. The finish is very classy and long. Drink from 2019.

  • Fresh and floral nose, with bright red fruits on the palate, good energy and grip and lovely finish. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    The Chalonnais doesn’t produce many wines more sophisticated and seductive than this one. The fruits are a little darker than on the village wine and there is more glycerol and glossiness. The tannins are finely grained and perfectly integrated and the overall sense of harmony is impressive. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    This is really quite grown up with wonderful polish and poise. Strawberries and cream aromas, silky tannins and stylish, fine featured fruit flavours. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This needs a couple of years in the cellars but you will be glad you showed patience. It has so much potential for a humble Rully. Glossy, sophisticated tannins bound up a palate of cool forest fruits and spice. This is elegant yet very intense and beautifully harmonious.

  • Wine

    This is a little more serious and backward with more power and structure. There is earth but also blackcurrants and cream on the nose and a touch of spice, too. Needs a couple of years but will be very good. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    This is more masculine and powerful, with more sappiness and more patience required. Structured, firm with strong underlying fruit character and perhaps darker fruits than we saw on the village wine. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This is quite backward, the clay elements of the soil providing a powerful structure and depth of fruit. There is some spice and and some dark, earthy fruits all lifted by a fresh mid-palate that drives the entire thing. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This is quite a different animal, more substantial, more brooding. The clay elements in the soil provide weight and structure and this is a wine that will age well. Plenty of fruit underneath the framework. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    As it so often does this has a touch of spice running through its core, perhaps coming from both the oak and the soil. It is aged 100% in barrels with about 25% new oak, which frames the fruit very nicely indeed. Considering the level of concentration there is great drive and balance and this will need a couple of years to hit its peak. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    This is aged entirely in barrel with about 25% new oak. It shows some oak spice in youth but underneath there is a real weight of fruit and the finish is long and inviting. Sophisticated and stylish. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This wine was able to adopt its lieu-dit when fruit from a second plot was discarded and everything came from this excellent site that sits just below the 1ers Crus. Aged in a both stainless steel and oak, though very little new, this is full of lively, loral fruit with some spice and good drive. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    From a well-sited plot of vines just below the 1ers Crus this is aged in a mix of stainless, steel, old barrels and a few new ones (about 20%). Too much steel and the wine might be too lean, too much oak then too heavy. This seems to be just right. There is plenty of richness but there is drive and good acid on the finish lifting the fruit and adding length and interest. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    If you thought Red Rully was rustic and cumbersome then think again. This is just delightful. Fruit driven, bright with energy and lift A lovely expression of Pinot. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    This is such a lovely expression of cool, crunchy Pinot Noir. Fleshy, red fruited and already quite delicious. Perfect lunchtime Bugrundy.
