Beaune Premier Cru Teurons 2017, Domaine Rossignol Trapet
£ 60.00

Biodynamic since 1997,Rossignol Trapet is a Domaine which has earned a great deal of respect ingrowing years. A perfumed nose, with an added peppery sappiness when tasted a month later. Bright red berries on the palate, which is crunchy and precise. 10to 15% new oak.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015, Chateau de Mersault
£ 28.95
Delicious pure forest berry and plum fruit with notes of red cherry. Succulent and juicy
Charmes Chambertin  Grande Cru 2016, Domaine de Varoilles
£ 135.00
Intense colours, profound aromatics, finesse and elegance are the watchwords here rather than power. There are no rough edges, even in youth, the wines complemented by freshness and lightness of touch, belying underlying, restrained muscle.
Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2016, Domaine Heresztyn Mazzini
£ 195.00
A more elegant though markedly restrained nose features cool and pure aromas of dried flowers, high-toned red and blue pinot fruit and lovely spice nuances. The rich, refined and equally pure middle weight flavors are supple yet precise before culminating in a mineral-driven, firm, dusty and long finish where the supporting tannins are notably fine-grained. A CSD of harmony and refinement that should also age effortlessly.
Fixin 2015, Louis Boillot
£ 34.95
It has a slightly earthy nose, sultry when tasted from barrel, with raspberry preserve and subtle iodine scents, almost like a Marsannay. The palate is medium bodied with crunchy blackberry and blackcurrant notes, sprinkled with black pepper and a touch of graphite towards the edgy finish. I appreciate the energy conveyed here, although the edges need to be smoothed down.
Gevrey Chambertin 2020, Chateau de Marsannay
£ 68.45
Exquisitely pretty Marsannay. Not particularly complex, but that is not the point of this wine, it’s all about pure, unadulterated pleasure. An open, generous array of fruit flavours of damsons and cherries with a floral violet perfume. Soft, generous, and velvety. 30% whole bunch fermentation.
Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Champonnets 2016, Domaine Heresztyn Mazzini
£ 90.00
There is more whole bunch (70%) in the 2016 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru les Champonnets, the highest used by the domaine in this growing season. Now this has a very mineral-driven bouquet, terse and linear at first, though the fruit soon comes to the surface—blackberries, briary and a hint of cassis. This is very seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, weight and persistence.
Givry Vielles Vignes 2019, Domaine Ragot
£ 34.50
Lovely mixture of red and black fruits, rich and generous on the palate with silky tanins

Saint Aubin Red Premier Cru 2009, Derriere La Tour, Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet et Fils

Delicate aromas of red fruits, tilled earth, savoury, cranberry and undergrowth. This opens further to a ripe raspberry coulis and a little tertiary development.
The entry is richer than expected with cough syrup, ripe red plum, dried cranberry, Pride of India cherry and spices. There is freshness in the mid-palate helped by an agile acidity is supported by a grainy yet creamy tannin. 

Savigny les Beaune Premier Cru Lavieres 2016, Domaine JJ Girard
£ 45.50
Aromas of red and dark fruits , blend on the palate with a little spicy oak . A long lingering smooth after taste .
Volnay Premier Cru Les Angles 2015, Domaine Louis Boillot
£ 99.00
Located on the Pommard side of the village, Les Angles is a warm site which is always picked first to ensure the grapes do not become over ripe.
The cool essence of red cherry, currant, floral and discreet wood nuances leads to detailed, punchy and precise medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky texture, all wrapped in a sappy and impressively long finale where a hint of cherry pit emerges. Good stuff.
