A negociant house that was making some stunning Red and White Burgundy in the 90s & 00s. With great access to quality vineyards and a lot of care and thought in the winery this producer made a standout range of Burgundy under his own name. Unfortunately the negociant business feel out of his hands but Nicholas’ wines continue to impress and amazing.
Just a wonderful vineyard. I’ve never had a wine that from here that isn’t aromatically stunning and with a good core of mineral and structural elements. If the budget doesn’t quite stretch to Grand Cru than this high quality Premier Cru certainly will wow the room. Supple, savoury, minerally, perfumed, vibrant, spices, depth, layered, intense and thrilling. Great balance, depth of fruit and plush but with fine tannins and great length.
Pinot Noir – This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
