    A fine example of this superbly positioned Grand Cru. Intense dark bramble fruits are enhanced by a delicate freshness, while the tannins provide a drive which all contributes towards a wine with real poise and class.

  • Neal Martin, November 2016, Score: 93

    Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with brambly red and black fruit, fresh with fine pixelation. The palate is medium-bodied with a vivid, peppery entry. The acidity is well judged and there is proper "Morey" backbone here, saline in the mouth with just a hint of brine/black olive towards the sophisticated finish. Even if there is a faint suggestion of TCA, this remains an excellent wine. Tasted September 2016.

  • Sarah Marsh, November 2014, Score: 19.4

    This was very primary. High toned, pure and fresh. A delicate, airy; tight architectural style. This has finesses to the texture; minerality and tension and a very long finish. Really precise. Ethereal!. Lovely. Score 19.4

Region

Côte de Nuits Villages

This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
