Softly smoky, toasted hazelnut, pangrattato and beautiful icing-sugar dusted pear tart and white flowers. Lovely weight and mouthfeel- full but not opulent, confit lemon, blackthorn blossom, with a wet stone-tingling finish and lemon sherbet. Not big on fruit, but lots of wine and structure. Combines the wet stone vigour of Chablis with more generosity. Amazing long finish which makes you salivate almost uncontrollably! Drinking beautifully now but will age gracefully too. We always kick ourselves that we didn't hang on to more bottles to enjoy with a bit of age.
We’ve been importing from this brilliant producer for 10 years. Based in the village of Fuissé, the domaine is run by Christophe, former young Burgundy winemaker of the year and his sister Sandrine. They’re one of the beacons of burgundy that is still good value, and helpfully, they only release the wines as they’re beginning to drink, so you can be sure of something delicious from the off. They have that aérien quality (a term that Burgundians usually reserve for reverential whispers about Puligny-Montrachet) in the way they seem to glide across the palate with lift not weight, the result of fine fruit concentration, deep-rooted old vines, very low residual sugar and a translatable sense of cool limestone from the soils on which the vines grow. These are some of the most loyally followed wines of all those we import.
