2013 Grand Cru Domaine Huguenot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Philippe's vines in Charmes are right up under Griotte Chambertin, where there is more stone ('calcaire d'entroques' or crinoidal limestone) and this gives wines with more elegance - the topsoil soil is very shallow here. An immediately appealing florally fruity nose, and the palate shows delicacy behind the ripe but fine fruit. Very elegant and linear. Drinking range: 2021 - 2028 L&S (Nov 2014)
*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).
