2011 Champs Perdrix Domaine Huguenot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
This is on the hard limestone named 'Comblanchien' after the village next to Nuits where it is quarried for marble. Named the 'partridge field', and there is a hint of subtle gaminess. Delicate fruit and this tonic dryness. Long and straight. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010).
Deep in colour, this modern style red Burgundy displays a fine fresh berry fruit fragrance, lots of juicy fresh strawberry-sweet fruit freshness and a hint of spicy oak with lively purity of Pinot Noir fruitiness in a well-crafted, balanced style. Very good for under £20. Rating: 90 www.thewinegang.com (Feb 2013)
Quite rich nose and some real texture and energy. Solid stuff. 2016-2022 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2013)
