• BURGUNDY

  • THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSION OF TERROIR

    Burgundy's complex and long history of winemaking and its extremely fragmented vineyard mosaic make it one of the most compelling wine regions in the world. This why Burgundy is and will always be at the heart of what we do.

  • Domaine Denis Mortet

    GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN

    Denis Mortet founded the estate in the early 1990’s after he inherited half of his father’s estate Charles Mortet. He rapidly became known among Burgundy wine lovers as he produced a series of very good vintages in the 90’s, he is still perceived as one of the most emblematic figures in Gevrey-Chambertin. When Denis Mortet passed away in 2006, his son, Arnaud took over the estate. Arnaud is following his father’s steps with the same obsession for excellence. The wines are now very true to their origins, but have become a lot more elegant and refined than those of Denis have been in the past.

     

    The domaine benefits from a great range of appellations mostly located on the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, with a tiny parcel of 0.15ha of the king of wines: Chambertin. The estate possesses also some very interesting 1er Crus, well situated on the Combe de Lavaux part of Gevrey. The Gevrey Chambertin Village “Mes Cinq Terroirs” is a blend of different “super” Lieux Dits (Au Vellé, En Derée, En Motrot, Combe dessus, En Champs) planted with old vines. In good vintages, this wine could easily pass for a 1er Cru.

  • Domaine Dugat-Py

    GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN

    The Dugat family have been winegrowers in Gevrey-Chambertin since the beginning of the 17th century. Bernard Dugat and his son, Loîc are the 12th and 13th generations to continue the family’s wine-growing and making traditions that have been passed on through centuries.

     

    The domaine is based in the buildings of the Aumônerie, in the old part of Gevrey-Chambertin, at the foot of the Combe de Lavaux, Very little remains of these buildings today, apart from the cellars, which were built in the 11th and 12th centuries, under directions from Aumônier (Abbot) Halinard. Continuing a nine hundred year tradition, Dugat-Py wines are aged from 18 to 24 months in these magnificent vaulted cellars.

     

    The 10 hectares of Domaine Dugat-Py count some of the greatest terroirs of Gevrey and are planted with vines that are for the most part very old. Across the domaine the vines have an average age of 65 years. The key to success at Dugat-Py is without doubt in the vineyard, with exceptionally meticulous control of the work being the order of the day.

     

    As winemakers the Dugat family follows Burgundian traditions and produces wines that are deeply coloured, rich, full-bodied and elegant. Their wines allow wine lovers to rediscover the style that contributed to the prestige and reputation of Burgundy wines that came before the 1970’s and 1980’s.

  • Domaine Jérome Galeyrand

    GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN

    Jérôme Galeyrand is in his second career having found his true calling in the late 1990s after having done a vintage with Gevrey-Chambertin legend, Alain Burguet. Jérôme’s experience was so profound that he decided to leave his job as a cheesemaker in his native Loire and move to Burgundy to start winemaking studies. He eventually started his domaine in 2002 with a tiny plot of vine of only 0.05Ha. Since then, he has expanded the holdings to five hectares of mostly very old vines in the Côte de Nuits. He now produces wine from the appellations of Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin, Marsannay, Côte de Nuits village, Bourgogne rouge and blanc aiming to deliver wines that speak of their place.

     

    Jérôme puts most of his focus in the vineyards. He only uses copper, sulphur and herbal teas to treat the vines and plows regularly to maintain oxygen levels in the topsoil. The estate has been certified Biodynamic since 2015. The harvest is done by hand and followed by thorough sorting. Intuitive, Jérôme doesn't follow any given rules in the cellar and will adapt his approach in accordance with the vintage and the fruits harvested. The vinification is carried out with indigenous yeast only and wines are aged in barrels, 12 months for whites and 18 to 24 months for reds. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal addition of sulfur.

     

    Jérôme’s wines are perfumed, precise, refined and elegant.

    CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY

    This small but fine Chambolle-Musigny domaine has holdings in the top vineyards in Chambolle such as the Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares, 1er Cru les Amoureuses and Les Charmes, with vines that are around 50 years old.

     

    François Bertheau, who has been working there since 1984, is the fifth generation running the estate and fully took over over in 2004.

     

    A purist in style, François is focused on the peculiarities of each terroir; he wants his Chambolles to be identifiable as such. Bertheau is a partisan of “non intervention” in the cellar; fermentation occurs without the addition of cultured yeasts; little pigeage and remontage are done to avoid an overbearing, extracted style. The objective is to preserve the freshness and minerality that distinguishes the wines from Burgundy’s most elegant appellation. The wines are matured in 2 to 3 year old barrels to avoid any notes of new oak.

  • Domaine Henri Felettig

    CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY

    Gilbert and Christine form the second generation of wine grower on this relatively young estate. They succeeded their father and founder of the domaine, Henri Felettig who created the estate in the 1970s.

    The Domaine of 12.5 heactares now comprises prestigious appellations such as Grand Cru les Echézeaux and many of the premier crus of Chambolle-Musigny.

     

    Until recently, much of Felettig’s wine was sold to négociants, including the Dominique Laurent, Olivier Bernstein or even Domaine Dujac’s negociant operation, all of whom valued the careful, organic farming of Gilbert.

    Now, however, Gilbert Felettig has found a style of his own in the winery, and the entire crop is domaine-bottled. The production is quite limited with only about 50,000 bottles produced per year.

     

    The vines are farmed completely organically, the harvest is done manually and the fruit is sorted twice: once in the vineyards and then again at the cuverie. The fruit is then mostly de-stemmed and Gilbert uses around 10 to 50% new oak depending on the wine, with ageing lasting between 13 to 15 months. The new wine is then transferred by gravity to a bottling line where it is bottled without fining or filtrating.

     

    Felettig wines are traditionally crafted, and very representative of a style of Chambolle that is not too unlike that of Domaine Roumier. It therefore comes as no surprise that Gilbert is universally seen as one of the rising stars in Burgundy.

  • Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    Established in 1858, this Vosne Romanée estate has undergone significant changes over the past decade.

    To start with, the name changed from Robert Arnoux to Arnoux-Lachaux, reflecting the fact that the wines have been made by Pascal Lachaux for some 20 years now and that he and his wife Florence Arnoux (daughter of Robert Arnoux) have run the domaine since 1995. Furthermore, Charles Lachaux, Pascal’s son, joined the domaine in late 2011 after graduating from his wine studies and having worked abroad (Oregon and New Zeland) and in Burgundy (Tollot-Beaut).

     

    Although always good, the quality of the Domaine's wines has soared in recent vintages! In charge of the vinification since 2012 Charles has notably implemented whole bunch fermentation with a minimum of 40% whole clusters for most of the wines to a 100% whole cluster for the top wines. He also progressively reduced the amount of new oak used especially for the premier and grand crus. Furthermore, his vineyard work is inspired by that of his friend Olivier Lamy and that of Lalou Bize-Leroy. With great terroirs and a burning desire to improve and fine-tune every aspect of winemaking, this is an estate set on the road to stardom.

  • Domaine Sylvain Cathiard

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    The history of Domaine Sylvain Cathiard began in 1930 when Sylvain’s grandfather Alfred Cathiard who worked at Domaine de la Romanée Conti and at Lamarche was given a small plot in Vosne Romaneée. He soon enlarged his holdings by contracting numerous métayage agreements with the Thomas-Moillard family. During that time, Cathiard was only selling its production to négociants, but in the 50’s he and his son Andre started selling their wine under their name.

     

    In the 1970’s Sylvain joined his father, they managed to acquire a parcel in the now very much sought after premier cru Aux Malconsorts, and in the 1980’s they further expanded their holdings with a plot in the premier cru les Suchots. Finally, in 1996 Sylvain acquired some of the Grand Cru Romanée Saint Vivant, which is the estate’s flagship wine. In 2005, Sylvain’s son Sébastien joined the family estate being the 4th generation of Cathiards working in here. Since 2011, Sébastien has been fully managing the estate.

     

    The viticulture practices follow the Lutte Raisonnée principles: the vineyards are ploughed and the use of chemicals is minimised. Sébastien Cathiard prefers his wines to be little extracted and produces wines of riveting complexity and concentration. With the 2014 and 2015 vintages, he has firmly established the Cathiard name as one of the very best in all of Burgundy, and critics and winelovers alike can only look forward to the wines improving further during the next years.

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    Domaine Forey was established in 1840 in Vosne-Romanée. A century later Regis Forey expanded the estate by acquiring parcels in the Grand Cru Echézeaux Grand Cru and the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Gaudichots, which is a mythic 1er Cru most of which is now part of la Tâche.

    Under Regis, there is minimal use of herbicides and pesticides that contributes to increase both the richness and complexity of the soil. After the manual harvest, the grapes go through a 3 to 4 days of cold maceration. The cuvaison continues for 3 to 4 weeks, and pigeage is practiced depending on the overall conditions of the vintage, then the wine is put into barrels for 16 to 20 months, there is only one racking during the period of élevage. He uses 80% of new oak on his Grands Crus but uses large barrels for his village wine to give better-integrated oak flavors to the wine. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered

    The wines produced by Jean Forey (Regis’s father) were charming and full of elegance and finesse. Regis followed his father steps, he has, however, incorporated more masculinity and roundness into the wines leading to exceptional concentration and depth. On the palate his wines are an explosion of succulent fruit structured by the singular complexity of each terroir and a length that says a lot about the ageing potential.

  • Domaine Leroy

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    The success story of Leroy started in 1868 with Maison Leroy, a négociant business founded by François Leroy. Through the years it became more and more difficult to find growers with wines that met the strict standards worthy of the Maison Leroy label. Therefore, Lalou Bize-Leroy, François’ great-granddaughter, made the decision to expand Maison Leroy’s own vineyards. In 1988 she founded Domaine Leroy by purchasing, the estates of Charles Noellat in Vosne-Romanée and of Philippe-Rémy in Gevrey-Chambertin. In total Domaine Leroy now has close to 22 hectares and produces some of the greatest Burgundy wines.

     

    The estate has been working biodynamically since the beginning, as Lalou Bize-Leroy has always been a firm believer in this philosophy. Their viticultural methods are meticulous and very demanding involving rigorous pruning, replacing each individual dead vine stock with a selection massale from the Domaine’s plants. At harvest, all bunches are thoroughly sorted and are put into tailor-made wooden fermentation vats that fit a specific parcel of vines. Every stage of the vinification is driven by the desire to preserve each terroir’s identity. The temperature of fermentation can reach 33C to allow more extraction of flavours, and only indigenous yeasts are in operation. The wine is then transferred to casks with its lees, reds and whites are all matured in new oak barrels. Wines are racked in the middle of their élevage, and are bottled without fining or filtering.

     

    The wines produced here are undoubtedly the greatest in all of Burgundy. No other estate works so precisely in the vineyard and cellar, and produces wines of such admirable concentration and complexity. No matter whether it is a ‘mere’ village wine or a Grand Cru, these are some of the very best wines made in the world today.

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    Until the summer of August 2009 there were two domaines, Mugneret-Gibourg and Dr Georges Mugneret. The former was created in 1933 following the marriage of André Mugneret, from an old Vosne-Romanée family, and Jeanne Gibourg in 1928. Their son, Dr Georges Mugneret, who was a pharmacist by trade, purchased further vineyards, thus enlarging the family’s holdings. The Mugneret-Gibourg vines were looked after by sharecroppers, which remained the case until recently, with some of the domaine’s vines having been looked after by Fabrice Vigot and Pascal Mugneret. The Dr Georges Mugneret vines are worked by the domaine itself and Fabrice Vigot’s lease has come to a close as well.. After Dr Georges early death in 1988 the domaine was run by his widow, Jacqueline and their daughters, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée.

     

    The wines made by Marie-Andrée and Marie-Christine are some of the most refined and elegant in the Côte, and have long been incredibly hard to find.

    VOSNE-ROMANÉE

    Cécile Tremblay, grandniece of the emblematic Henri Jayer, descends from a long line of vignerons but has rapidly succeeded to make a name for herself in the world of wine. She is now considered by numerous critics to be Burgundy’s next super star following in the footsteps of the region’s grande dame: Lalou-Bize Leroy.

     

    Three hectares in the Côte de Nuits were passed down to Cécile through the two branches of her family, Jayer and Mugneret, both from Vosne-Romanée. Tremblay first bottled wines in 2003 and in a very short period of time her small production cuvees became sought after by the best restaurants of Paris.

     

    The Domaine‘s range of appellations is very small, but its holdings are in the best locations. Two wines are bottled from Vosne-Romanée, including an outstanding village cuvée. The primary source for this wine are 45-50 year old vines in the lieu-dit Les Jacquines, but also included fruit from a tiny parcel (0.23 ha.) of 40 year old vines in the premier cru Les Rouges du Dessus. A more perfumed and powerfully structured wine is made from 75 years old vines in the large premier cru Les Beaux Monts.

    In Chambolle-Musigny, Cécile owns half hectare of 50 years old vines in the premier cru Les Feusselottes and some village level plots. Another parcel of 50 year old vines in the Grand Cru Chapelle-Chambertin (0.40 ha.) produces one of her greatest wines, rivalled only by her Echézeaux, which is routinely one of the very best wines from that vineyard..

     

    Cécile’s winemaking is incredibly meticulous, and indeed it is difficult to think of another winemaker who is so thoughtful and careful in what they are doing in the cellar as she is. Unsurprisingly, given the quality of her wines, these have become incredibly rare and hard to find.

    BEAUNE

    Some of the wine-world’s leading critics have called Benjamin Leroux the successor of the great Henri Jayer. Whilst Benjamin himself does not believe such praise to be justified, his knowledge about wine and most of all about the finer points of terroir characteristics runs deep. After establishing his name by leading Domaine Comte Armand Clos des Epeneaux for eight years, Leroux started his négociant business in 2007 to make wines under his own label. The range is confined to the Cote d’Or, ranging Chassagne-Montrachet in the south to Gevrey-Chambertin in the north.

     

    He carefully selects his growers and exerts maximum control over them, converting as many of them as possible to organic and biodynamic practices.

     

    His wines are youthful and expressive, with transparent expressions of each underlying terroir.

    MEURSAULT

    The Boillot family has been making wine in Burgundy since 1885. Henri is the third generation to produce wines from the domaine. The domaine itself under the name “Domaine Henri Boillot” has only been in existence since 2005 – when Henri bought out his brother and sister and renamed the domaine from “Domaine Jean Boillot” to “Domaine Henri Boillot” to avoid confusion with his brother’s estate “Jean Marc Boillot”.

    Henri’s son, Guillaume joined the domaine in 2008. In 2012, he became the head of viniculture and took over the vinification of the red wines. Father and son are now working hand in hand.

     

    Today, Domaine Henri Boillot consists of 19 hectares of vineyard, roughly equally planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The holdings count a notable number of 1er crus in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, and Volnay, and include the Clos de la Mouchère, a walled-enclave monopole within the Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Perrières. The 2017 vintage saw the arrival of two new parcels of Grand Cru red, in Échezeaux and Latricières Chambertin.

     

    In the vineyard Henri and Guillaume farm sustainably, avoiding artificial pesticides and herbicides. Vineyard work is meticulous throughout the year to maintain low yields and to achieve perfect ripeness and natural balance of the fruits when harvest comes.

     

    A thorough sorting is done in the vineyard during harvest. Pinot Noir grapes are mostly destemmed, crushed and go through a cold soaked before a fairly long fermentation in oak. The Chardonnays are very gently crushed in a vertical press to avoid bitter flavours and fermented in 350-liter barrels to preserve the purity and freshness of the fruit. Most wines are aged for 18 months in barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

     

    Whilst Boillot is famous for his world-class whites, the hard work of Guillaume to improve their red wines is paying off. In recent years, the domaine has been bottling some of the finest white and red wines of the Cote.

  • Henri Germain et Fils

    MEURSAULT

    Based in Meursault the domaine was set up by Henri Germain in 1973. It’s now his son, Jean-François Germain, who manages the 7 hectares of vineyard spread around Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Beaune.

    The admiration that Germain receives on the Côte itself speaks volumes about the quality of his wines. Producers in our portfolio like Olivier Lamy, Thierry Pillot, Charles Lachaux and Benjamin Leroux have regularly made the claim that the wines of Jean-François Germain are the best in Meursault!

     

    The Germain methods are very traditional with organic farming, low yields and cellar work that keeps interference to a minimum. The vinification is minimalist in the extreme with no added yeasts, no enzymes and not even any bâtonnage. If the lees are sufficiently clean, the wines are never racked and the élevage lasts 18 months for the village wines and a full 22 months for the remaining wines. Importantly, the wines see little new oak, usually between 20-30%.

  • Fiona Leroy

    DEZIZE-LES-MARANGES

    The young and dynamic Fiona Leroy started her tiny domaine of 2.7 hectares in Dezize-Les-Maranges in December 2017. Maranges is the southernmost wine appellation of the Côte de Beaune and from an agricultural and ecological point of view is one of its most diversified appellations.

     

    Committed to preserving diversity in her vineyards, Fiona Leroy systematically follows organic and biodynamic practices. A combination of copper, sulfur, infusions and decoctions are used to fight diseases. To respect the lifeblood cycle of the vines and improve their immune defense, Fiona Leroy has opted for Guyot Poussard pruning. Only manual work is used in the vineyards and she use a small caterpillar tractor to carry out treatments and ploughing.

     

    During harvest, the team that handpicks each bunch performs a rigorous sorting to only bring the best grapes back to the cellar.

    Winemaking here is simple, traditional and as natural as possible. White wines are pressed as soon as the grapes reach the winery. After settling the juice is transferred to oak barrels where fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. For red wines, the grapes are fully destemmed and put in tanks for fermentation. The wine will then be taken down to the cellar where the aging will continue in oak barrels. To preserve the nuances of her individual terroirs Fiona Leroy uses no new oak, for both white and red wines. The reds are neither fined nor filtered, whilst her whites only receive a light filtration.

     

    Fiona Leroy first vintage, 2018, was a franc success and we are looking forward to see the evolution of this passionate winemaker in the coming years.

    DEZIZE-LES-MARANGES

    In 2005, Marc and Alexandre Bachelet created Domaine Bachelet-Monnot from the union of the vineyards held by their father and their uncle.

    The two brothers farm just over twenty hectares of vines. The white holdings include 1.3 hectares of Bourgogne in Puligny (30 feet from the edge of the AOC), some very well situated, old vine villages, small holdings in both Les Folatières and Les Referts and a tiny plot of Bâtard Montrachet from that vineyard’s coolest upper reaches. The red wines, all within Santenay and Maranges, comprise a Bourgogne Rouge from declassified village sites, two Maranges 1er Cru; Clos de la Boutiere and La Fussière and an old vine parcel in Santenay Les Charmes. In so often forgotten appellations such as Maranges and Santenay it is fascinating to see what a new pair of well-travelled eyes, an innate understanding of each vineyard’s terroir and instinctive winegrowing talent can produce.

     

    The Bachelet brothers adopt an unforced, labour-intensive approach to achieve their goals of naturally balanced and precise wines. In the vineyards, no herbicide is used and the rows are ploughed regularly to manage weeds, aerate the soil, and cut the horizontal roots to encourage deep growth. In the cellar, the percentage of new barrels used is roughly 25%; the wine is aged for twelve months before being racked into tank (or, in the case of the reds, concrete vats) for another six to eight months of ageing on the lees before bottling.

     

    Bachelet-Monnot has been captivating the wine world right from the start and with each subsequent release outdoing the last it’s a domaine to keep an eye on!

    Domaine Lamy-Caillat was born from the union of two bourguignons: Sébastien Caillat and Florence Lamy. Deeply rooted in Chassagne-Montrachet this “micro-domaine” of 1.2 hectare only grows Chardonnay.

    The desire of Sébastien and Florence to get back to basics influences their vinification methods, which are both natural and traditional. Each one of their cuvees requires a very long period of maturation in cold, damp cellars (the wines are aged in barrels for around 2 years). Once the maturation process is complete, wines are hand bottles directly from the barrel with no filtration.

    Chassagne-Montrachet is quickly establishing itself as Burgundy’s most exciting village for white winemaking. With a host of younger vignerons who keep improving their wines year in, year out it is a village that is completely redefining it’s reputation. One of the pioneers of this movement is Domaine Bernard Moreau’s Alexandre Moreau. Since he took over the family estate, he’s continuously improved the winemaking, whilst remaining very traditional in his approach.

     

    Today, alongside a handful of other domaines he’s without doubt one of the greatest makers of white Burgundy around.

  • Vincent Dancer

    CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET

    Vincent is one of a small group of young growers passionate about good wine who are gradually taking back their family vines. Having grown up in Alsace, Vincent Dancer only went to Burgundy after having studied engineering, upon the suggestion of his father. The family owned some vines there that were rented out to cousins at the time.

     

    From his organically managed 5 hectares of vines spread over the Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Pommard appellations Vincent crafts 12 to 13 different wines every year, making only 1 to 5 barrels of each.

    In the cellar Vincent follows the philosophy of minimal intervention. Wines are left on their owns to age in barrels for about 12 month and then they sit in stainless steel tanks for another 6 months before gravitation bottling without filtration.

     

    True perfectionist Vincent won’t put his name on anything unless he is 100% happy with it. In 1999, for example, yields for his Pommard Villages were slightly too high, resulting in a wine that did not quite come up to his own high standards, so he sold it off to a local négociant. Vincent creates wines displaying finesse, minerality and purity. Each cuvee is a true reflection of its terroir.

    CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET

    The Domaine dates back to the second half of the 19th century when Thierry’s great-grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Pillot, decided to concentrate on viticulture rather than barrel making, having done both for some time previously. The reputation of this Chassagne-Montrachet domaine has long been better than solid, but since Thierry Pillot joined his father Paul in the winery in 1999 there has been an incremental but notable shift upwards in quality. It was Paul who really extended the holdings of the domaine and bought many of the vineyards which the domaine is famous for now, such as Caillerets and Grandes Ruchottes. Thierry and his sister Chrystelle now fully run the 13-hectare domaine.

     

    Attention to detail is both evident and crucial. Thierry is known to use minimal amount of new oak on the wines to allow the full expression of the different terroirs. Wines have a beautifully balanced acidity with a clean, vibrant mineral character.

  • Domaine Hubert Lamy

    SAINT-AUBIN

    Domaine Hubert Lamy is located in Saint-Aubin, between Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. Hubert Lamy built the estate in the 1980s and his son, Olivier is one of the leading figures of quality-focused winemakers of the younger generation. It is largely his work that established the reputation of Saint-Aubin as a reference for fantastic, attractively priced white Burgundies that have little to envy their more famous neighbours.

     

    The estate is composed of 17 hectares, spread over the communes of St-Aubin, Chassagne Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet and Santenay. With wines such as the premier Cru En Remilly, which is located right next to the Chevalier Montrachet and Montrachet Grand Crus, or Murgers des Dents de Chien, Olivier shows that great viticulture can produce wines of outstanding quality, no matter where they come from.

     

    Vines are planted at a high density, to limit the yields and increase the level of maturity and concentration, which is a capital factor in a late ripening area such as Saint-Aubin. The vineyards are farmed more or less organically, but Olivier is not seeking certification since he may wish to use an occasional non-organic treatment for a mildew or oidium. For the whites, Olivier retains all the lees and after pressing and the wines are directly transferred into barrels for fermentation. Unlike most winemakers, Olivier resorts to 600L casks rather than traditional 228L barrels, and tries to minimise the effect of wood with only 20 % new oak used to fully express the minerality of Saint-Aubin’s terroir.

    SANTENAY

    Located in Santenay, Domaine Jean-Marc Vincent was established by Jean-Marc and his wife Anne-Marie in 1997. The couple has been gradually retrieving the vineyards of Vincent’s grandfather that were rented out via metayage agreements. Today the estate counts 6 hectares over the appellations of Santenay, Auxey-Duresses, Saint-Aubin, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.

     

    Training his canopies higher and rolling them, planting at high densities—up to 17,000 vines per hectare—, Vincent is proudly inspired by Saint-Aubin visionary Olivier Lamy, and his work in the vines translates to exceptional energy and concentration in the glass.

    All grapes are harvested by hand, with several passes through the vineyard to pick grapes at optimal maturity. The reds see a classic cuvaison—of de-stemmed or whole cluster fruit depending on the vintage and vineyard—followed by élevage in 30% to 40% new wood for a minimum of 15 months. Whites are pressed long and comparatively firmly, followed by fermentation and élevage of increasingly prolonged duration in wood. All appellations are treated with the same meticulous care!

     

    Characterised by an intense expression of individual terroir and a solid structure all of Jean-Marc Vincent’s wines are a testament to the importance of vigneron talent in a given appellation.

    While a great vigneron can make over-achievers from any appellation, a great appellation will never live up to its reputation in the hands of mediocrity.

  • Maison Patrick Piuze

    CHABLIS

    Originally from Montreal, Patrick Piuze’s wine adventure started when he was 18 years old when he met Marc Chapoutier who introduced him to wine. He then started working in a wine bar in Canada, but in 2000 he decided to settle in Burgundy to discover winemaking. He started at Olivier Leflaive and had an experience as winemaker at Verget before deciding to launch his own micro négociant business in Chablis in 2008.

     

    Patrick Piuze is passionate about Chablis’ terroir and strives to buy the grapes from the best vineyards and the most meticulous growers. Very traditional in his winemaking, these are wines that have been compared to the appellation’s greats such as Raveneau and Dauvissat starting with the debut 2008 vintage.

  • Domaine de la Cras

    COTEAUX DE DIJON

    Domaine de la Cras is a 160-hectare farm with 8 hectares of vines located on the hills overlooking Dijon. In 2013, the city of Dijon purchased the farm as part of a state conservation initiative and chose young vigneron, Marc Soyard, to farm the land, grow the property, and plant more vines. Originally from a non-winemaking family in the Jura, Soyard worked for six years as vineyard manager at Domaine Bizot in Vosne-Romanée. While at Bizot, Marc also worked closely with Jean-Yves Bizot in the cellar.

     

    The official appellation at the domaine is Bourgogne AOC, but Domaine de la Cras is the sole Burgundy domaine allowed to use the designation Coteaux de Dijon. They also have the ability to label their blanc and rouge cuvées Cras “Monopole”. The cuvées “Coteaux” come from the lower elevation parcels, while the cuvées “Cras” come from the steeper, better-exposed parcels. In addition to the 8 hectares of vines of the farm, Marc owns small vineyards in Ladoix-Serrigny, Corgoloin and on the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits planted with beautiful old pinot fin vines.

     

    All of the vineyards are farmed organically with some biodynamic practices. Marc has a very hands-off approach to winemaking; the vinifications are done with natural yeasts and minimal addition of sulfur. Depending on the vintage, the reds include a more or less large percentage of whole clusters. The élevage is done in a mix of new and used barrels, with frequent experimentation using different types of wood in small amounts including oak from various forests, as well as chestnut and acacia barrels. Wines are bottled without finning and filtering.

     

    From the modest terroirs of Coteaux de Dijon Marc produces vibrant and elegant wines!

  • Domaine François Raveneau

    CHABLIS

    Domaine Raveneau is arguably the greatest estate in Chablis. Quantities produced have always been minuscule and comes from the village’s top vineyards. The domaine’s holdings include three grand cru vineyards (Blanchot, Les Clos, and Valmur) and a selection of premier crus (Montée de Tonnerre, Les Vaillons, Butteaux, Chapelot, Mont-Mains, and Forêt).

     

    The domaine’s creation dates back to 1948, when François Raveneau consolidated his holdings with his wife’s parcels. François Raveneau built the reputation of this estate thanks to his inimitable style and an incredible consistency in quality. His son, Jean-Marie Raveneau began working at the domaine in 1978, officially taking the reins from François in 1988. Jean-Marie’s older brother, Bernard, only returned to work for the family domaine in 1995. Today, they have a loosely divided split between them, with Jean-Marie in the vineyards and Bernard in the cellar—a division that will seemingly be continued by Jean-Marie’s son Maxime and Bernard’s daughter Isabelle.

     

    The Raveneau family harvests their entire crop by hand, something of a rarity in Chablis. Fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeast in stainless-steel-vats. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are done, the wines are racked off their lees and put in used barrels for 18 months, keeping only fine lees. After this ageing process, the wines are transferred back to stainless-still-vats for about 6 month before being bottled. The domaine often waits a further 6 months after bottling before releasing the wines.

     

    Domaine Raveneau is undoubtedly the source of Chablis's greatest wines.

From his 12 hectares he produces Chablis vieilles vignes, Chablis Montmains premier cru, Chablis Fourchaume premier cru and Chablis Valmur grand cru. A special cuvée of Fourchaume is labeled as La Pièce au Comte.

    Evolution in recent years has been towards more natural winemaking, in the vineyard he aims to limit the yield of the old vines (45-50 hl/ha) and most of the crop is now harvested by hand. Natural yeasts are preferred for the fermentation. The wines have a long élevage on fine lees, the crus being bottles after 15 to 18 months, with a proportion of barrel fermentation and maturation for the top wines.

    MERCUREY

    Bruno Lorenzon took over the family-owned domaine from his parents in 1997. Assisted by his sister, Carline, Bruno runs this Mercurey domaine with precision and passion.

     

    The vines here are trained higher than his neighbors' and farmed organically. Not unlike Olivier Lamy or Jean-Marc Vincent he has also long been an advocate of higher density planting and rolled canopies to have naturally lower yields and less juice in each grape. With grapes grown in such a perfectionist manner, in the cellar, attention is paid to every detail to safeguard the wines' finesse and precision. Bruno is for instance the only producer in Burgundy apart from DRC or DUJAC that we know of who dries his own wood for his barrels. A detail that shows how far he pushes things towards his idea of perfection.

     

    Bruno’s wines are pure, elegant, and have that special textural dimension that wines made from grapes grown in this manner often possess. On top of this, they have great terroir-transparency, allowing tasters to entirely re-discover the differences between Mercurey’s underestimated crus. The wines are at a level rivaling those of great producers of the Côte d’Or!

    The domaine grows 20 appellations split between the Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The Pinot Noirs are 100% de-stemmed and go through a cold maceration. After fermentation the red wines are aged in barrel (1/3 new wood) for 12 months. No cold maceration is implemented on the whites and only 25% of new oak is used. Vincent’s commitment to excellence has made him become one of the great producers of white Burgundy, who have somewhat stayed under the radar.

    VIRÉ-CLESSÉ (MÂCONNAIS)

    The estate of Bongran consists now of 15 hectares grown on clay with white marl subsoils. Jean Thevenet's father originally owned a few acres in the area; after realising the terroir's potential, he started buying surrounding plots from his neighbors. Jean learnt from his father to spot and appreciate a good terroir but also all the vinification methods he still uses to this day.

    He is a firm believer of organic viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking; Along with Marcel Lapierre and Pierre Overnoy, he helped the development of organic viticulture and natural wine throughout France in the early 80’s.

     

    Jean Thévenet wines are undoubtedly some of the most unique expressions of Chardonnay being made today. The wines' natural fermentation and ageing usually takes close to two years, at which time it is bottled and held in the Thévenet's cellar, to be released at their discretion. Grapes here mature much later than the norm, and produce wines that are naturally high in alcohol, rich in body, bright in minerality, acidity and invariably has traces of residual sugar. This creates incredible food pairings possibilities with richer dishes and cheeses. The wines also age incredibly and have been called “poor man’s DRC Montrachet” by some of the world’s leading wine critics.
