What experts say  
  
16.5++ "A cloud of glorious perfume, peachy, golden, lemon peel. So fragrant. Then clenched up on the palate, gunpowder and just-ground metal, stony-faced and inward-looking. Bold structure defined by angular electric acidity. Long and steely."
 
  
  

92 "Lean and taut, with a vein of mineral punctuating the lemon, green apple and sweet spice aromas and flavors. Almost bracing in structure, this white is focused, converging on the lemony aftertaste." (2012 vintage)

It is to our mind one of the most perfect white burgundy we've ever had. Everything is in there - fruit, minerality, complexity, long buttery finish...

A very special Bourgogne Chardonnay, as it is made with grapes coming from Meursault! It is no surprise if the quality of this wine easily overcomes most Bourgogne Chardonnays - Jancis Robinson even gives it a 16. It has an expressive nose of lime, white peach with a hint of flowers and light wooden notes. It shows a superb balance on the palate. A clear,...

Moving up in the range, this Rully is made of old Chardonnay vines. They provide wine with more fruity flavours and tend to make it more concentrated, for a better complexity. Flavours of ripe apple and hints of peach end up on a beautiful and fresh finish. An excellent bottle which will be perfect on prawns or a white meat.

It exhibits pure notes of citrus and honeysuckle, supported by a beautiful minerality and a buttery finish, giving the wine a real class. A superb bottle for this price range.

Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the most prestigious appellations in Burgundy and it definitely gives amazing wines in the hands of a gifted winemaker like Thibaut Marion. Made from old vines in one single plot, this Gevrey is everything you can hope for with this type of wine. Beautiful aromas of black and red fruits nicely enhanced with a spicy touch,...

More powerful than the Gevrey, this Volnay 1er Cru is a stunning wine for amateurs of great red Burgundy. It shows aromas of cherry and blackcurrant, along with toasted notes coming from the long ageing in oak. The palate is very well balanced between aromas and tannins, which are present but well integrated. It ends with a long a savoury finish.
