Domaine Marchand Freres Gevrey-Chambertin 'Vieilles Vignes' 2018
‘Vieilles Vignes’, old vines, have the advantage of keeping crop yields naturally low. And low crop yields mean ‘concentration’. Here we get that concentration in a Gevrey-Chambertin ‘village’ made from two contiguous ‘lieux dits’ (Pressonniers and Fourneaux) which are situated below the line of the Grand Cru to the west of the Combe Lavaux. We are talking about a classic Gevrey village spot, similar to the vineyard ‘Aux Etelois’ that is just across the way. This is Gevrey-Chambertin as we like it best.
Domaine Michel Rebourgeon Pommard ‘Cuvee William’ 2018
Average age of the vines is 100 years old. One of the parcels from which this family-named cuvee is produced is ‘La Vache’, which was one of the earliest vineyard replantations in Pommard after the phylloxera epidemic. 18 months in 100% new oak on a village appellation is radical, but the wine supports it. Clear, sweet oaky notes, melted into the density of the wine. Great linear tension pulls the minerality through from attack to mid-palate to finish. A masterful wine.
Domaine Elodie Roy Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' 2019
This Santenay 1er cru Les Gravières offers aromas of cassis, plums, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy, elegant and muscular, it's a deep and concentrated wine
Domaine Joliet Fixin 1er Cru 'Clos de la Perriere' 2012
Pale ruby red, this Fixin at 13% alcohol is anything but your stereotypic Fixin rustic. Very elegant, sweet fresh raspberry fruit, then cherry. There’s richness and intensity, ripeness and purity, a tension that tells you it will age well. Complex and seductive, long and exciting.
