The nose has a very flamboyant feel with plenty of brambly, darker cherries and spices. The palate has a very pure feel with velvety tannins, carrying red to dark cherries.

This has a wealth of peach and gently nutty notes with a smooth array of fresh bread and hazelnut biscuits on the palate. Good freshness here with yellow peach to close.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus Exclusivity 2017

February 2019

91-92 Points

James Suckling

A refined nose for Beaune with raspberry pastry and red cherries with a violet-flower edge. The palate has delicate and fine tannins with great structural integrity. The length and balance are very convincing. Approachable red fruit at the finish.

Blanc de Blancs

July 2015

James Suckling

A nicely captured reductive edge here, this holds white peach and apple aromas fresh with dried white flowers and a very gentle nutty, cashewy thread. The palate's bright, creamy and fruity; it throws big fruit flavors upwards with crunchy acidity. Drink now.

Brut Souverain

March 2015

91

James Suckling

A fresh, clean champagne with sliced apple, pear and lots of mineral character. Full to medium body, crisp acidity and a long finish. Lots of citrus undertones. Bright and steely. This is mostly 2009, with the remainder from reserve wines. Four years on the lees. This is very focused. 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2016

February 2018

93

James Suckling

Lemon butter and almond pastry from time spent in four- to six-year-old barrels. Sweetly fragrant white flowers and a fine minerally thread. This makes a very composed, fresh and sleek impression on the palate. Long and slightly fleshy white-peach finish.

This is a fabulous white wine with dried apple, mango and mineral plus hints of hazelnut. Full body, bright acidity and a long, dry finish. What a white.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine

February 2018

96

James Suckling

The complexity, concentration and drive make this an excellent Clos in 2016. The fruits vary from citrus to exotic stone fruits. Green tropical and white floral notes, too. The palate has a staggeringly concentrated core of acid-drenched lemons, lime, peaches and green mangoes. Incredible depth, high acidity and a very long finish. A great Clos!
