Vineyard Grandes Ruchottes

Tasted from one new and one older barrel, the Grandes Ruchottes showed its class. Saline and taut it vibrates with energy, willing one to swallow. Terrific. Drinking range: 2019 - 2026 L&S (Nov 2016)

A little less distinct on the nose than the Vide Bourse – and less obviously fruity. Hint of lychees! Lots there. No-one would be disappointed by this. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)

Salty mineral tang on the palate, with brisk apple fruit and lovely floral perfume like jasmine and honeysuckle on the finish. Wonderful. Drinking range: 2017 - 2030 Rating: 17.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)

Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot

Laurent's wife Marie-Anne inherited half of her family's property, the Pommard domaine of Pothier-Rieusset, and he and his father have now bought the other half. The wines from this domaine represent excellent value, and they age very well too, despite being attractive young.

Laurent's 1992 Grandes Ruchottes came top of a tasting of wines of that vintage in 2012, ahead of some supposedly much 'grander' domaines. Laurent manages to pack in a lot alongside his running of the vineyard. He has a sophisticated microlight which he flies to all corners of France, he keeps and hunts hawks, and conducts the Chassagne brass band as well as dabbling in Mayoral duties - on top of being a father.
