  • Goedhuis, December 2022

    The oldest vineyards on the estate were planted back in 1928 by Jean-Philippe’s grandfather, who would be hugely proud of his grandson’s brilliant cuvée this year! Freshly baked bread aromas, this is a fully textured wine, with superb intensity. Fresh and linear it just slips back into its shell on the finish, a sign of a wine with excellent ageing potential. Top class.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2022, Score: 90-92

    Grown on 3309C rootstock and very old vines, so not too badly affected. A solid and quite powerful bouquet. Plenty of white fruit on the palate, not flamboyant, with a good backbone which enables a fine persistence, over and above Meix sous le Château. This will keep well. Drink from 2026-2031.

This has got to be the most well organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Philippe’s 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.

This has got to be the most well organised cellar in the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Philippe’s 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. These wines are made with great care and patience, and all enjoy 12 months in barrel (he tends to use larger 600 litre demi-muids rather than the traditional 228 litre pièces) followed by a further 6 months on fine lees in tank. His painstaking attention to detail is demonstrated in his wines, which are pure and seamless. Though most of his wines are only village lieux dits, they could easily be mistaken for premiers crus.Read less

Region

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
