Domaine Faiveley

The Faiveley family are the largest vineyard owners in Burgundy, owning around 120ha, spread across the Côtes de Nuits, Beaune and Chalonnaise and encompassing everything from generic Bourgogne up to the grandest of Grand Crus. Their holdings supply the grapes for 5 out of every 6 bottles made by Faiveley, the balance being bought in from carefully selected contract growers. At the top end these wines are right up there with the best and in 2017 these are luxurious, showy and give unadulterated pleasure. As with so many producers this year each wine really has a sense of place and knows its spot on the pecking order. Some real delights here for drinkers.

After tasting the Mazis the immediate feel here is softer, but there is some leather and more restraint to the fruit. This is bright and has good powdered energy. a chalky drive keeps it so fresh -After tasting the Mazis the immediate feel here is softer, but there is some leather and more restraint to the fruit. This is bright and has good powdered energy. a chalky drive keeps it so fresh - but there is a racy sleekness to the red and purple fruit. Good and intense. Smart stuff indeed.

Richly ripe and a supple breadth - but with a fine-grained texture and gentle grip that just holds this ample and rich weight of deep, red fruit. Impressive tension keeps it alive and with great ping. Yes. The power and velvety push is very enchanting. Drinking range: 2019 - 2030L&S(Nov 2018)

Domaine Christophe Perrot-Minot

Christophe is now the fourth generation of his family producing wine on the estate after his great grandfather Amédée Merme devoted himself to the management and production of wine over 130 years ago. The estate has gone from strength to strength – always keeping the highest standards. Integrated viticulture has been practiced for many years now which has been adapted especially for the terroir. No herbicide or chemical fertilizer is used, instead, Christophe prefers to “stand back and listen to this terroir, only intervening when necessary or when the weather requires it, never systematically.” We still await the offer on allocations from Christophe, so please form an orderly queue - i.e. send requests and we will deal with them once we know what we have. This is one of the star domaines of the whole of Burgundy.

This is gorgeously succulent on the nose. It is elegant and juicy and floral on the attack. Intense and fresh in the middle - lovely depth with no over richness. Rippling bolt of satin. The finishThis is gorgeously succulent on the nose. It is elegant and juicy and floral on the attack. Intense and fresh in the middle - lovely depth with no over richness. Rippling bolt of satin. The finish is very persistent, delightfully floral and fresh. It has structure and grace. Rating: 19.85 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 2018)

Nose has a darker edge than the other Grand Crus here. There is a jolt of energy on the palate. Yes the fruit is ripe, but with such vigour and energy that it races along. Really lovely brightness toNose has a darker edge than the other Grand Crus here. There is a jolt of energy on the palate. Yes the fruit is ripe, but with such vigour and energy that it races along. Really lovely brightness to the plum and strawberry highlights, clean lines and such drive. This is poised and so well measured. Weight builds but is always without excess. Not glossy, not heavy - just spot on. Walking the tight-rope of impact and excess this nails it. Not wavering at any moment, this delivers with huge fanfare. The balance with minerality is tip top - nothing is out of kilter. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030L&S(Nov 2018)
