Burgundy has had a series of difficult vintages which has removed the equivalent of the production of an entire vintage over the last five years. Devastating frosts destroyed large swathes of the 2016 crop but the damage was uneven. Some vineyards had normal harvests while other parcels, including several Grands Crus, were almost wiped out. Conditions were definitely challenging in 2016 but the mood amongst growers was upbeat when we visited in the autumn of 2017.
The wines are characterised by their classical style, with ripe and energetic fruit to the fore. We expect the wines to be extremely popular and many will sell out quickly. Please be swift if you wish to place an order.

Produced from a south facing parcel at the extreme south of Les Vaillons, this unique wine is vinified in a concrete egg to give an additional layer of complexity. The shape of the egg creates a circulating effect for the lees while the porosity of the surface allows for micro-oxidation like a barrique but without any woody characters. The beautifully...more
