Buisson-Battault 2018s – Limestone Symphony

This feels a good time for Francois and his family. Their domaine, Buisson-Battault, is no longer the insider’s secret it was, known locally as a fine source of Meursault, but little known abroad. His reputation is now growing worldwide, and it is richly deserved. There are two broad categories of wines here – though of […]

Domaine de la Paturie

A magnificent terroir, rediscovered When Delphine, one half of Maison de la Chapelle, gives a hot tip, we listen. So when she said she knew of a ‘magnificent terroir, forgotten, but being rediscovered’ we jumped.  Domaine de la Paturie are found in the village of Champlitte, around 60km north-east of Dijon. In the past it […]

Domaine Philippe Auchère, Bue

“Le Sancerre authentique et traditionnel, tout simplement“ Sancerre is such an all powerful brand name it is tempting to think of it as a homogeneous area, producing oceans of a single wine, with little of the diversification that makes Burgundy, say, so fascinating. While this idea suits the large producers and co-operatives, who like to […]

Domaine Nathalie & Gilles Fèvre Chablis 2020 – pure and crystalline.

I always enjoy the drive out to Fontenay-Prѐs-Chablis, the hamlet where Domaine G&N Fèvre are based. It sits in a sea of vines, two steps from their tasting room and you are into the vineyard, white soil beneath your feet, the ground littered with limestone pebbles. Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre, now joined by their daughter […]

Please email jack@robertrolls.com to enquire about remaining wines One of the things I most enjoy about tasting a new vintage is the way it gives one perspective on previous vintages.

Chablis (and a St Veran!) 2019

Chablis is one of my favourite wines. The area’s distinctive soils, Kimmeridgian Clay, composed of millions of ancient crustaceans, gives Chablis it’s purity and crystalline minerality. There is nothing else like it and it is delicious. Chablis lies to the North of the Cote d’Or, with a cooler climate which can be extreme – in […]

Champagne Philippe Gonet

This offer is now closed. Last month we welcomed Chantal Gonet to London for two days of visits and tastings, culminating in our Blanc de Blanc dinner at Lorne, a terrific success.  It was great to really get to know them in her company; I must admit to being blown away by their quality- I […]

Maison de la Chapelle’s Succulent 2019s

2019 is an absolutely top flight Burgundy vintage, and the wines from Maison de la Chapelle in Irancy are the finest we have tasted so far. We have worked with Grégory and Delphine Viennois for two vintages, but this was our first chance to enjoy a proper visit to their Maison in the pretty village […]

Domaine Tupinier-Bautista 2019 – “Mercurey at its most gourmand and seductive”*

Domaine Tupinier-Bautista, Mercurey “The 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this address”* Manu Bautista began picking on the 5th Sept, a few days earlier than in 2018.  The fruit was of fine quality but the berries were smaller due to relative lack of water during the summer months resulting in yields which were 15% […]
