DWWA 2015 Bronze.jpg

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "Delicious crunchy fresh fruits; flavours of strawberry, raspberry and mulberry, with a refreshing green pepper and floral aroma. Wonderful, food-friendly Pinot noir." (2013 vintage)

15.5/20"Pale ruby. Very spicy nose and a light-bodied, sweet-fruited palate. Grainy tannins on the end. The flavours aren't especially pure but the balance between sweetness and acidity is reasonably good. This tastes as though some particularly toasty oak was used and rather dominates the fruit." (2014 vintage)

Wine-Enthusiast.jpg

87/100 "Vines planted between 900 and 1,200 feet above sea level give this cool interpretation of Pinot Noir. The wine is crisp, lightly structured with some tannins and with a delicate cherry and red-berry fruitiness. It will be ready to drink from 2017." (2014 vintage)

89/100 "Light garnet. Suggestions of sour cherry, blackberry, liquorice and peony on the nose. Very supple palate which stays on an intense fruit course over substantial length. Harmony stays slender without too much thickness. A racy, soft Burgundy.." (2014 vintage)

Chorey-les-Beaune is a small (only 300 acres) and classic appellation from the Côte de Beaune area (close to Aloxe Corton and Savigny-les-Beaune), producing almost exclusively red wines. This cuvée is an authentic medium-bodied red showing aroma of raspberry, cherry and liquorice.. A great pick to start going up in the range of red Burgundies!

One of the very top appellations for white Burgundy wines. Round, fresh and subtle wine, it is perfectly structured. Multiple and complex aromas (citrus, exotic fruit, hint of orange) which are progressively replaced by a long, buttery and toasted finish with notes of nuts and vanilla. A very big and complex white wine, typical from the prestigious Côte...

Next to Meursault, Chassagne Montrachet is also one of the star appellations of the Côte de Beaune, and this Premier Cru shows an unbelievable complexity.

Montagny is located in the Côte Chalonnaise, producing 100% Chardonnay whites only and offering better value than many other appellations in Burgundy. We have chose this premier cru - made from vines coming from the best parcels - for its overall balance, its flavours of peach, pear and hawthorn, its notes of hazelnut and honey on the finish...
