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 […]

Wines of Purity and Intensity – Burgundy En Primeur 2022

Featuring wines from 2020 and late release 2019s Download the offer here One of the things I most enjoy about tasting a new vintage is the way it gives one perspective on previous vintages. The last of three good but different years, arguably the best of them, 2020 seems to me to be somewhere between […]

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

Pre-Shipment Offer 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 clearly haven’t been […]

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% […]

SUPER BOURGOGNE!

Given an area as obsessed with the primacy of terroir as Burgundy it seems counter intuitive to highlight the regional wines. On paper these are the lowest ranked vineyards, off the beaten track and not allowed to mention their location. But with careful viticulture and vinification these wines can offer real interest and Burgundian character […]
