Another ‘last parcel’ email – we’ve found in our warehouse just 6 and a half cases of this excellent value burgundy from another of our under the radar producers – Domaine de la Douaix – which are very worthy of a good home:

Lea & Sandeman review
‘From a steep vineyard which faces due south over the village of Arcenant. At the top there is only 25 centimetres of soil above the rock. Dark colour and deep dark juicy fruit flavours, very pure with the mineral straightness of a wine from stone. Brilliant value.’ L&S
Other reviews and comments
‘Lush but fresh cherry aromas. Quite plump, with body and concentration. Robust and spicy, with quite good acidity and length, extract and charm.‘ 90/100 Decanter Magazine
Domaine de la Douaix
Mark and Gilles Moustie are Belgians, wine and Burgundy fans. The family rented a gite for many years in the Hautes Côtes village of Arcenant, straight up the hill to the west of Nuits Saint Georges, and gently graduated from buying wines at domaines up and down the Côte to wanting to make the wine themselves. Eventually they bought some vines and a house with cellars, and set to.
Mark et Gilles Moustie – Domaine de la Douaix
Their three wines are all from vines they own, but they do make a little wine from bought-in fruit to supplement what is still a tiny domaine. Mark is Belgium-based, a management consultant, so it is his son Gilles who is hands-on on a daily basis.
