A gravel of broken limestone on the rubble washed down the combe. Little real soil makes this an early-ripening spot. Supple and silky, the limestone gives a surprising mineral brightness and energy. The freshness means it will keep the drive and juice. Nice finish. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2016)

Cask sample. Simple red fruit with a sheen of oak spice. There is ripe tannin here, but it isn't obviously Gevrey in structure. Complete, ripe, balanced. Has enough fruit concentration to age fairly well for a few years, although isn't hugely complex. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
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. Nevertheless Philippe, although initially unsure if he would try for the certification again was 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. So he fought his way back, and the wines have been certified organic again since 2019.
