    For some reason we only started buying this in 2014 but it’s a great introduction to the wines of Thierry. Pure, lively with a strong gel of fruit and acidity. Perfect, classy aperitif-style Burgundy in waiting. Drink from 2018.

  • Worth holding for at least a year before drinking. The inherent fruit and richness combined with the racy, linear style of the domaine make for a very classy Bourgogne Blanc. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    From what were once the vines from the Château de Puligny property that Étienne bought a couple of years ago comes this delicious and intense generic that is like a mini Puligny. Precise, focused with a lithe undercurrent that carries the ripe fruit flavours to the finish. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This has a delightful delicatesse about it. There is freshness and bite and great consistency through the palate. Attractive subtle nuances, no sledge hammers here!Drink from 2016

    This is lemony and lively, as it so often is in youth, with good tension and a sense of understatement. Controlled, well proportioned and nice underlying minerals.

  • Wine

    This comes from a couple of plotsin Puligny is good locations. It is aged in 50% stainless steel and 50% oak. It is lively and fresh with some gentle minerality and really clean fruit. Works well and great value.

    This is in fact a Puligny Bourgogne rather than a Meursault one, though this example has a touch more richness than normal. There is some extract and plenty of mineral undertones. Lovely entry wine. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    This vineyard actually lies in Puligny-Montrachet, which perhaps explains its taut, mouthwatering quality. For a humble Bourgogne it has excellent weight and extract and is certainly over-delivering. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    From a vineyard close to Puligny this is a nice mix of bright freshness from the vineyard and easy roundedness from the vintage. Great value Bourgogne

  • Wine

    Yields very low for a Bourgogne at 22 hectolitres per hectare here and the wine is super concentrated as a result yet there is a lovely stony bite to it. Very much a superior Bourgogne in the style of a Puligny.

  • Wine

    Most of the fruit comes from vines further down the valley, but sited on a good slope of limestone soil with lots of stones. True to Lamy’s style the Bourgogne Blanc is energetic, mineral and fresh. The wine actually smells tight and tense and promises well for the future. Somehow Olivier just seems to achieve greater concentration than most at this level. An impressive and serious example. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    About as expensive as a generic wine could be but then it is about as good a one as you are likely to taste. It’s dense, dark and earthy yet the fruit aromatics are fresh and appealing. Needs time but will be excellent. Drink from now.

    Production was sadly down by about 2/3s, which is a great shame. The fruit is from the Côte de Beaune, around Pommard, which explains the lack of grapes! What there is is punchy and intense with nice bright, earthy aromas and a stylish finish. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    This comes from the Hautes Côtes de Nuits but Charles chose to declassify it down which is great for all of us as we get more wine for our money! Very much on the fruit and red fruit at that. Pretty and designed to drink in the early years.Drink from 2016

  • Very pretty, raspberry-fruited red with hints of earth and stone. Refined tannins and fresh bite. Drink from 2016

    One forgets Olivier’s reds at one’s peril. They really are so much more than an afterthought.This was mighty impressive on tasting. The vines are 65 years old and its natural intensity andconcentration really shines through. There is lovely energy and bite and a drive that make it quite mouthwatering. Very limited. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    The vines here are old and Olivier was able to keep 50% of the stems. excellent ripeness and also a lovely crunchy freshness that runs seamlessly though the mid-palate. Very stylish and sophisticated, especially for the appellation. Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    Bertrand would normally expect to make around 18 barrels of this but in `16 he only made 7. The vines are in the heart of the village just below Maltroie, which was very badly affected by frost. This has plenty of richness on the attack but finishes lively and clean. Nicely made.

  • Wine

    This is a big cuvée in terms of production for the domaine, although you wouldn`t think so judging by the fact that we never have enough! However, in 2016 it was down by more than 60 barrels (1500 cases) which is a staggering amount. It is possibly a little more backward than usual but will no doubt hit its stride shortly. Currently there is a lovely intense leanness to the palate which will fill out and deepen as it ages. Excellent example.

    When red Chassagne is good , it`s really good and this is really good. It`s mainly red fruits but with hints of black as well. Juicy, lush yet controlled and structured. And, of course, good value. Drink from 2015.

  • Wine

    We offered this for the first time last year and it sold out instantly! So here it is again. The vines are just next to the Chardonnay ones and there is good flesh but good definition, too. For the quality of fruit this is a steal. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    The lesser known Baudines sits on the southern side of Chassagne on rocky soil at some altitude and the wine is consequently generally lean and austere, although this year there is a little more overt richness and fat. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    Baudines is high up in the Côte and the last vineyard to the south of Chassagne. There is very little soil here and the mother rock is just below teh surface. In 2016 this has imparted a lovely flintiness in to the wine and left it mouthwateringly delicious. There is never much of this but thankfully it pretty much avoided the frost this year.

  • Wine

    Just what one would expect from Caillerets; stony, mineral, understated and quite mouthwatering. Oak well handled. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This is one of Chassagne`s most classic vineyards and this version combines a lovely salty stoniness and energy with a consumate concentration. Controlled, harmonious and well defined.

  • Wine

    The vineyard lies to the north of the village on the Puligny border and the vines are now 55 years old (a small proportion being over 80 years). The wine comes across as more backward and yet has noticeably greater depth and a higher mineral component. The most serious of the lineup of 1er crus and will reward with a little extra time in the cellar. Drink from 2021. The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenevottes 1er Cru has the most mineral-driven bouquet of three tasted blind from this vineyard; it is taut and linear, a little more Puligny-esque than its peers. The palate is well balanced, with a lip-smacking saline note that really gets the saliva flowing. There is a great deal of buoyancy and vivacity contained in this Chassagne-Montrachet, and it should repay cellaring if so desired. That said, I would not discourage anyone from cracking this open now. Drink from 2019-2030. 91 points. Neal Martin.

    The vines here are between 40 and 80 years old. Excellent intensity and effortless concentration with real length and volume on the finish. Very promising.

  • Wine

    This is the first vintage of this wine, which comes from a tiny, almost triangular-shaped vineyard that sits just above the top left hand corner of Chevalier Montrachet. Only 3 barrels were made (there should be more in 2017!) so very limited volumes available. This was the most backward of the 1ers Cru as one might have expected but some excellent potential.

    The Maltroye vineyard sits just outside the garden of the domaine. Floral and pear notes on the nose. The attack offers a delicious saline quality, leading to long and persistent rounded flavours. Very long. Drink from 2019. This vineyard lies just behind the domaine in the heart of the village and it’s wine really complements Armand’s restrained style. Naturally spicy with a certain amount of innate richness, this Maltroie is soothed by a finesse and understated approach that runs right through the wine. It builds and finishes very well. Compact and plenty to come.

  • Wine

    We haven’t bought this before, but the vines here are 75 years old and though the wine is rich the PH is low and there is an appealing restraint and balance. There is a touch of spice and some citrus fruits and nice length. Drink from 2019.

  • Wine

    This was very badly affected by frost, the vineyard lying just behind the house and cuverie in the heart of the village. What a shame. This is certainly very concentated with some wild spice and hints of flower and plenty of weight. A touch of attractive struck match reduction, too adds another layer. Lovely
