Powerful and massive wine from clayey soil next to grand cru Ruchottes. There is dark colour, and rich tannin as well as fruit - a bit of a brute but no shortage of character, and the fruit is very much equal to the structure, it just needs time to harmonise. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 L&S (Nov 2014)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Bright light crimson. A real hit of bumptious fruit on the front palate. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)

Domaine Huguenot

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).
