A walk in the vines: Domaine Roty’s Gevrey-Chambertin Champs Chenys

8th November 2019 Just back in the office today from a visit to Burgundy. Perhaps the most interesting tasting was a three-hour appointment with Pierre-Jean Roty which included an in-depth visit to see the Tres Vieilles Vignes in Charmes-Chambertin, a walk through some of his other sites and a plate of Madame Roty’s epic gougères.

Having started in the early 1990s with a few vines inherited from his grandparents Rodolphe has now built his domaine to 8ha. Early on he stopped using chemicals, no herbicides, pesticides […]

Cathiard 2017s – Pristine

Another excellent tasting. Superb wines across the board, Sébastien is cementing his reputation as one of the finest wine makers in the Cote de Nuits. Many thousands of words have been written eulogising these wines, what more can be said? Don’t forget the Nuit Saint Georges, from the village to the 1er Cru Aux Murgers […]

Lignier’s Everyday Wines

Great wine makers make great wines – a truism of course- but certainly worth remembering when it comes to Burgundy.

Wine making is traditional and hands off, new oak is kept low and the wines are bottled […]
