Old vines indeed and it's obvious in the creaminess of the fruit. Very rich and velvety, dense fruit savour. Perhaps not the length of really class terroirs, but for the money… L&S (Dec 2013)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Brave, powerful nose with a lot of smoke, toast, matchstick reduction and just a hint of earthiness. Stylised and convincing, because the fruit is ripe, clean and concentrated. 2016-2030 Rating: 17+ Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2014)
Domaine de la Douaix
Mark and Gilles Moustie are Belgians, huge fans of wine and in particular Burgundy. 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.
Most of their 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.
A selection of great drinking from the evocative villages of the Côte de Nuits.
