Ripe and grand, at once betraying it's origin 'on the Côte' (it is from Corgoloin, just south of Nuits). A underpinning of hard stone giving a brightening support and vivacity. Rich and supple, but could do with another year in bottle. Drinking range: 2016 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2015)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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. These 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.
