Mark Haisma

An Aussie making wine in Burgundy? Whatever next? In fact the jovial Mr Haisma is one of several Aussies based in the Côte d’Or who are making waves. In 2017 he completed the constuction of a new cuverie in Vougeot giving him more space and a more modern environment in which to ply his trade. Pleasingly he is not interested in re-creating wines from his home country; he truly loves Burgundy and all the subtleties that lie within. Having previously worked at the renowned Yarra Yerring estate, Mark knows how to make good wine. What he perhaps hadn’t banked on was how long it might take to be fully integrated into the world of Burgundian vignerons. Still he is there now and making very classical wines from vineyards he generally manages and harvests but doesn’t own.
Jancis Robinson, March 2012. `Mark Haisma’s wines have an excellent balance between fruit, expression and refreshment without being in any way wimpish. The wines are also, appetisingly, bone dry.`

    Awaiting Tasting Note

  • A super nose, rich and sweetly spiced, enhanced by the use of 50% whole bunch in 2015. The Gevrey is probably the ‘stand-out’ of his village wines and is a blend of ‘Croix de Champ’ and ‘La Justice’ vineyards. The richness of the ‘Croix de Champs’ fruit is nicely lifted by the freshness and minerality of the ‘La Justice’. Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    This is a blend of ‘Croix de Champ’ and ‘La Justice’ at a ratio of 2/3 to 1/3. The rich fruit attack from the ‘Croix de Champ’ vineyard is perfectly lifted by the energetic minerality of ‘La Justice’. A marriage made in heaven! Drink from 2018.

  • Wine

    Chaffots sits just above the Grand Crus of Clos St-Denis and Clos de Roche on very rocky soil. This wine really reflect its terroir, being an impressive mix of fresh minerality and wild spice. Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    Chaffots sits just above the Grands Crus of Clos St-Denis and Clos de la Roche on very rocky soil. In 2015 Mark was able to go with 70% whole bunch and although the wine appears a little lighter in colour, the weight, breadth and complexity are extremely impressive. The site has great exposure and is generally the first vineyard that Mark picks. Just 5 barrels made (1 new). Drink from 2020.

  • Wine

    This vineyard lies just to the north of the village, on the Vosne side, below the 1ers Crus.It has appealing sweet flesh on the nose and plenty of stuffing in the mouth. Drink from 2019.

  • This vineyard lies just to the north of the village, on the Vosne side, below the 1er Crus. Mark has consistently produced a very appealing NSG and the 2015 is no exception. Pure and fresh with typical ‘Nuits’ structure, but essentially this is an elegant wine. Very enjoyable. Drink from 2018.

  • Mark tends to make a Pommard with style and class, and, with 50% new oak used in 2015, there’s an added seductiveness to the wine. Good complexity with plenty of personality. Black fruited plus an earthy spiciness to the finish. Drink from 2019.

  • Very atractive on the nose. Ample! The palate is forward with good concentration - the vines here are 55 years old and situated on stony, well exposed soil. The fruit element is ripe and sweet with a firm backbone of freshness. Well balanced with good structure, in part due to 15% new oak (500l barrel). Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    The vines here are fifty years old and situated on stony, well exposed soil. Elsewhere in this offer we have highlighted just how good 2014 is for this appellation and Mark’s version continues the trend. The balance is perfect, with plenty of ripe but focussed fruit, lifted by the stony, mineral edge of the wine. Mouth-watering and full of pleasure. Drink from 2017.

  • Wine

    The focus here is on femininity and elegance, with just a smidge (10%) of whole bunches included. The colour is an attractive, youthful purple and the nose is perfumed and floral. The palate displays a welcome lightness of touch, but has enough concentration, grip and freshness to make this an engaging proposition. Drink from 2018.
