Supple start with ripe fruit. Red cherry brightness and seems quite zippy although the acidities are generally low this year. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2015)

*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.

A discreet, even shy nose is composed of various dark berry, earth and a hint of game-inflected scents. The rounded and notably supple middle weight flavors possess a succulent mouth feel before terminating in a delicious and vibrant finish that offers medium depth but very nice length. While not especially concentrated I like the definition and delivery and this should offer 5 to 8 years of upside development potential.

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 took the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010), but immensely sadly he was forced to do a single non-organic treatment in 2016, because of the terrible conditions, so he was back to square one - three years to re-qualify for the organic label - but this should be in place for 2020. Philippe was initially unsure if he would try for the certification again - but for all that is not planning to change the way he works - it is, he assures us, better for him and the environment and and his workers as well as for quality, and the domaine will continue along organic lines.
