A brilliant array of Meursaults from
Jean-Philippe Fichet

Burgundy 2016 En Primeur | Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet

Excitement is building for the main release of Burgundy 2016 en primeur in January. After our Chablis offer met with high demand last week we have chosen one domaine from the Côte de Beaune to offer the early birds.

2016 whites fall somewhere between 2014's nervous freshness and 2015's opulent fruit. They have delicious balance and energy with a bright acidity running through their ripe fruit tones.

Jean-Philippe Fichet's has got to be the most well-organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. His attention to detail in his winery is a good indication of his handling of fruit, and goes some way to explaining the precise and distinct characteristics found in his wines, each possessing their own unique timbre.

Losses here, sadly, are significant, with Jean-Philippe reporting a 50% loss in his Bourgogne and village cuvées, including the Meix. But some of the Meursault lieux dits, like Tesson and Chevalières, fared a little better. These wines are made with great care and patience, and all enjoy 12 months in barrel followed by a further 6 months on fine lees in tank. Despite crushing losses from the frost, Jean-Philippe remains optimistic, upbeat, and convivial, and his wines taste full of joy.

Volumes, as with many other appellations, are severely down. This early release gives you an opportunity to secure some of this scarce stock, as well as put your names against some rare magnums.

Please note: Our main campaign will be in early January as usual. As 2016 Burgundies will be in short supply, please let us know of any particular wines or producers you are interested in ahead of the launch of the main campaign.

      Tasting Notes

      Goedhuis, December 2017

      As always, made from a blend of two parcels that lie just beyond the Meursault village boundary. A tight intensity to the fruit from 55-70 year old vines mark this out as a cut above most other Bourgognes Blancs on the block. Lemon pulp and fresh, bright minerality.

        Goedhuis, December 2017

        Strong limestone soils in the parcel result in a razor-like intensity to the white stone fruit flavours, which dance an intricate waltz with the sophisticated new oak spice. Excellent length.

          Tasting Notes

          Goedhuis, December 2017

          This cuvée lost half its volume to frost, but the remainder that matured through the summer has produced a quintessential Meursault. This has nutty tones, a salted butter savoury nuance, and soft, fresh acidity, with a good punch of energy at the end.

                Goedhuis, December 2017

                This tiny village parcel is tucked just beneath 1er Cru Charmes towards the Puligny end of the village. This has good weight and a nice, direct expression of white peaches and floral finesse, with some understated power on the finish.

                  Tasting Notes

                  Goedhuis, December 2017

                  Usually a cuvée of 12 barrels, this year Jean-Philippe scarcely has four. The Meix is often a rich, round style with ripe fruit. In 2016 however it leans more towards an energetic freshness with slightly lighter weight than usual. This change is the result of a difficult growing season for the vineyard was heavily damaged by frost, but in fact detracts not one bit from the enjoyment it offers. Relish its light-footed charm.

                    Goedhuis, December 2017

                    This wine shines year-in, year-out. Its richer gold-flecked colour hints at its greater exuberance. It has a touch of perfectly judged reduction that cuts through the richness of fleshy, ripe, tropical fruits, and rounded intensity on the mid-palate. With nuts, grilled bread, and white peach notes, this is a complex wine that should age well and drink beautifully across the years.

                        Goedhuis, December 2017

                        A step apart from Jean-Philippe’s Meursaults in style, this is evocative of classical Puligny with its saline texture and linear precision. Intense but refined, and with noticeable restraint in its white floral character and vibrant freshness.
