    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.

  • Wine

    Outstanding wine that supporters of upgrading Rugiens to a Grand Cru would be keen to use in evidence. Great power but very controlled, close knit and harmonious. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    Quite extraordinary to get such perfumed aromatics out of a Pommard. Good tannins here and appealing fragrance throughout. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    This is really quite high toned and mineral, thanks mainly to the austerity of the soil, although there is more clay than the style would suggest. Lively and full of vigour, this punctuates the fruitiness of the vintage really well. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    This vineyard sits largely on the plane and lower slopes and has much more clay than limestone. Consequently, the wine is broad, structured and powerful. There is some sappiness from the oak (About 20% new and well judged) and a masculinity that bodes well for longevity. There is an awful lot of wine here for the money. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This is a big vineyard and perhaps Maranges` most famous. As you approach the village from Santenay it occupies the steep slope to the right of he main road. It`s a great site, full of interesting soils. Bertrand is lucky enough to have some very old vines here and the depth of flavour they create is impressive but the most exciting element of this wine is the the precision and complexity of the fruit which is detailed and vibrant. One of the best value wines in this entire offer. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    Obviously it wasn’t an easy vintage to the appellation but again Bertrand has managed to avoid the often austere, overly robust nature of many Pommards. This is surprisingly pretty, though the fruits are darker and more brooding than those in the Chassagne. However, there is no harshness here and much pleasure to be had. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    We step up a gear here for what is a very complete and complex wine. Texturally imposing and remarkable intensity and presence. Serious stuff. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    The biggest holding of the domaine by some way which is the main reason there is actually some stock to sell. There is plenty of ripeness and good depth and intensity. Will take some time to re-emerge from its slumber. Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    The vines here are also sixty years old but the wine is quite different. Perfectly located mid-slope, Rugiens is the best vineyard in Pommard and, although tighter in youth than the Epenots, this has more culture and stuffing combined which makes for potentially a very serious wine. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    Unsurprisingly this is less well known than some 1ers Crus in this appellation as it is only about a hectare in size, more than half of which is owned by de Courcel. This has dark fruit flavours, black cherry and spice. Good tannins here and very nicely out together. Drink from 2017.

    Aux Thorey is situated on the slopes just north of Nuits on the Vosne side of the village and tends to produce a more feminine style of Nuits with a delightful aromatics and fragrance. This has plenty of spice and earth and is more Nuits than Vosne, with some structure and flesh. Drink from 2017-2025

  • Wine

    Les Aigrots lies next to the famous Clos des Mouches and this has a touch of class about it. If you’re looking for something to drink whilst the two wines below are maturing then this could be your wine. Very good sophistication for a Beaune and well balanced backbone. Drink from 2012.

  • Wine

    Quite simply, this is about as good as red Beaune gets. Powerful, scented and beautifully structured. Not the cheap- est Beaune you`ll ever buy but one of the very best. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    This is just the 2nd vintage of this recent acquisition. The culture and poise of this wine is most appealing and there is good depth and length, too. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    A new addition to the portfolio (7 barrels - 175 cases) and more akin in style to Serpentiers than Peuillets. Jean-Baptiste has handled the tannins well and there is lovely concentration. Drink from 2015.

  • Wine

    This is normally much more expressive but even this needs some time. Strong aromatics and good volume and length as always. Drink from 2015.

  • Wine

    Like Les Peuillets, JB has been looking to soften the hard edges of the Aloxe-Corton, an appellation noted more for its stubbornness than its charm. And there is little doubt that once again he has succeeded. It has a nice underlying minerality which is supported by tannins that are finer than previously. It does tighten but it’s well balanced and of high quality. Drink from 2014

  • Wine

    Very nice minerality for a Meursault, but then it is Perrières! Deceptively backward, with good stoniness and dry extract on the finish. Plenty to come. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    Yields here were down at 23 hectolitres per hectare (only 65 cases of 12 were made) and the natural concentration is easy to see. There is plenty of power and strong extract but also very good freshness and bite. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    Citrus and white orchard fruit suffused aromas. Lovely texture before culminating in a lingering and well-balanced finish.

    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.

    Just what you want from a Volnay; elegant, textured with fresh, red fruit flavours and excellent length. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    Classic style Volnay but with more depth and punch than the 2011, which was very much on the fruit. This has added depth and intensity. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    A new addition to the range this year and an appellation very much suited to Guillaume and Tomoko`s winemaking style, which highlights the fruits and freshness of it rather than the austerity. Lots of cultured, juicy red fruits here. Really attractive. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    Not a vineyard we have much experience of but it lies close to Clos des Mouches, which is much better known and commands much higher prices! This will drink nicely from a fairly early stage and it is rounded and attractive with no harsh or crude edges, which one can find in Beaune. Not super complex but really attractive and good value. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    This makes a lovely contrast with the Puligny version. There is all the taut stonyness one looks for from the vineyard but then also the intense, compact, richness of serious Meursault, too. Impressive. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    From 6 different vineyard parcels (Les Combes, Les Closeaux, Les Parties, Les Prés de la Dame, Les Champerriers and Les Gagères) all dotted around Puligny, totalling 2.4 hectares. This is fresh and bright with nice rounded fruit flavours and a delicatesse in keeping with the commune. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    Champgains is further up the slope , sitting above Folatieres and below La Garenne. Philippe only bought this plot of vines three years ago but another slice cam available last year but at between two and three times the price he paid just a couple of years earlier. It wasn`t a tough decision to turn it down! There is not much soil above the rock and the wine has a nice mineral edge to it. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    This vineyard lies on the same plane Montrachet et Le Caillerets but further along on the edge of Meursault so you get a lovvely mix of racy stonyness and richer fruit flavours. Good balance and again subtle use of oak. Good length and drive on the finish. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    Terrific mix of racy stoniness and spicy, honeyed white fruits. Lovely intensity, poise and balance. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    Romain makes one of the most sophisticated Cortons around with a hint of the Côte de Nuits about them. The tannins are refined and display the polished, earthy red fruits of the palate with panache. Drink from 2016

  • Wine

    This is a well structured wine, showing the classic bite and energy of the vintage which brings alive the earthy, red fruits that fill the glass. There is a touch of spice and an impressive sense of harmony. Drink from 2016

  • Wine

    Another classic Corton where Romain appears to have crafted a level of polish and refinement rarely seen in this appellation. Drink from 2016

  • Wine

    As always with this wine, this is rather sophisticated for a Corton, showing a classy mix of red and black fruits. The tannins are bang on and the poise is impressive. Drink from 2018

  • Wine

    Corton doesn`t get much better than this. Classy, refined tannins support elegant, precise fruit flavours with a fresh, pure structure and great length. Drink from 2017
