    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Justin Girardin is an enterprising young grower who is elevating Santenay to the heights it deserves. This is one of three Santenay premiers crus that Justin makes, from a terraced vineyard high up on the slopes. The 2018 has gorgeous aromas of almonds and Jersey cream. The initial velvety texture is refreshed by a gentle line of acidity. Very appealing, in a lovely unforced way.

    Goedhuis, January 2019

    Always an appealing and very classic style of Meursault with hints of honey, quince, mango and fresh double cream. Despite its ripe exotic fruit character, it has a balancing freshness providing drive and energy. A very rewarding wine.

    This too is aromatically difficult at present with strong matchstick nuances that mask the fruit. Otherwise the utterly delicious and caressing middle weight flavors coat the palate with dry extract while delivering very fine complexity and persistence on the citrus-inflected finale. This is at once lovely but quite serious. Outstanding. Top value. Drink 2023+.

    Straw-yellow. Fresh aromas of ripe apricot, peach and gingery spices. Concentrated and dry-verging-on-austere, with its fruit currently dominated by a stony mineral underpinning. This dry, saline wine boasts good material but it will need some time in bottle to harmonize its tartaric edge and chewy tannins. Finishes with very good length and grip. This was the highest 2017 in acidity at harvest after the Tête de Murger, noted Marion Javillier.

    Yet another corker from Sacha Lichine, a man that Jancis Robinson MW calls the ‘golden boy’ of rosé. Former Bordelais blue blood, Sacha Lichine, bought Château d’Esclans in 2006. By purchasing grapes from his neighbours in Provence and installing ex-Mouton Rothschild winemaker Patrick Léon in the cellar, he has created one of the most successful wine brands, which consistently delivers on style and taste. The 2019 has a subtle pink hue, delicate finesse and fragrant aromas of red fruits and rose water.

    The 2016 Ch des Antonins is a well-balanced Bordeaux Supèrieur that delivers gorgeous plummy flavours. With almost equal proportions of Merlot and Cabernet and sweet juicy fruits, it is a fine illustration of the 2016 vintage. The tannins are soft and sit comfortably with the freshness that flow throughout. The definition of easy drinking claret.

    Vincent’s 2018 Mercurey 1er Cru La Chassiere is affordable and delicious, the nose bursting with hedgerow fruits and violets. Juicy red and black fruits mingle with a refreshing leafiness on the palate, all framed by supple tannins and a lithe spine of acidity. A gorgeous wine that finishes on delicate spiced notes.

    Burghound, October 2019,
    Score: 89-92

    A very ripe array is comprised by notes of poached plum, cassis and plenty of earth and floral elements. There is more refinement still to the delicious medium weight flavors that exhibit focused power and delineation on the serious, notably firm and youthfully austere finale. This will require at least some patience and should repay up to a decade of keeping. Drink: 2026+

    Goedhuis, March 2021

    Nicolas Boiron is the 5th generation at this excellent Chateauneuf address, his family have been making wine here since 1860. The 2016 is an immersion of silky rich red fruits suffused with flavours of chocolate, espresso and black liquorice. Juicy, herby and gamey, this is a decadent Chateauneuf with sweeping structure and a bright line of acidity. Notes of wild thyme and rosemary linger on the finish.
