Chablis 1er Cru Montmain Pinson Frères 2018 | 
£210.00 per 12 IB

Reasons to Buy

  • The Pinsons have a knack for producing steely, elegant wines from some of Chablis’ most enviable vineyards.
  • The premier cru Montmain gives a precise, ethereal style of Chablis and the 2018 from Pinson Frères is a classic example.
  • Awarded 91-93 points by Jasper Morris MW, he comments that the 2018 is “really stylish with excellent length, just a spice or two at the back”.
  • Burghound is also impressed: “the attractively textured and rich middle weight flavours possess a caressing but solidly intense palate feel before concluding in a sneaky long and bracingly dry finish”. 89-92 points.
  • Excellent premier cru Chablis at just £17.50 a bottle IB.


Gevrey Chambertin Dix Climats Drouhin Laroze 2018 | 
£320.00 per 12 IB

Reasons to Buy

  • Under the brilliant management of Caroline and Nicolas Drouhin this estate is really hitting the high notes. A couple of years ago Neal Martin commented, “Drouhin-Laroze could rapidly be up there with the very best, alongside the likes of, say, Rousseau or Mortet.”
  • A truly representative Gevrey Chambertin from ten different vineyard plots (Dix Climats!) at just £26.67 per bottle IB.
  • A gorgeous fruit-driven Pinot Noir, packed with dark cherries and wild strawberries, a warming touch of spice and broad ripe tannins.
  • Awarded 89-91 points and described as “Crisp and focused, displaying great clarity on the finish” and “Superb” by Neal Martin.
  • Matthew Jukes called it “serious value for money and also relatively forward. 17 points”.

      Tasting Notes

      Goedhuis, December 2019

      From the clay soils at the top of the Montmain hill, this 2018 has hints of lemon, vanilla and cream. A pleasing generosity of fruit gives an approachable style balanced with a touch of saline freshness.

        Tasting Notes

        Goedhuis, December 2019

        The family own four hectares of Gevrey Chambertin village scattered in 10 different locations, and this is a truly representative village cuvée. With vibrant dark cherry aromas, this has great depth, ripe broad tannins and hints of mocha. The 30% whole bunch fruit provides some complex alpine strawberry flavours as the lasting sensation. Delicious.
