We are lucky enough to have been working with this fantastic domaine since we set up Flint Wines back in 2006 and, like the rest of the wine world, we simply love these wines. The domaine is 50 this year, having been set up from scratch by Jacques Seysses, who then continued to buy some fabulous plots throughout the 70s and 80s as he gradually expanded the holdings. Things peaked in the mid-noughties with the audacious joint purchase (along with the de Montille family) of Domaine Moillard which included great plots such as Malconsorts, Beaux Monts and RSV. With the recent addition of 2 great sites in Puligny, the range is now enviably complete. Today Jacques’ sons, Jeremy and Alec, and his daughter in law, oenologist Diana Snowden Seysses, run things with equal passion and guile, ensuring that the domaine’s loyal followers are kept wondrously happy with the quality of the wines being produced. There is perhaps a little less new oak and a little less whole bunch than previously, but the wines remain beautifully fragrant and seductive.
