On Calcaire Comblanchien, the same hard marble-like stone that is quarried south of Nuits Saint Georges, so very much on the rock. Very dark colour. Very suave. Supple fruit, fine tannins, roundness of texture, but its still lively in the mouth, with a bit of spice in the tannins. There's just a sense today that this will have greater clarity and focus once it's a bit further down the line - the malolactic was late and it has not really had time to develop - previous vintages give us full confidence about where this is going - once it clarifies and gains focus it will be a joy. Drinking range: 2021 - 2029 L&S (Nov 2016)

Cask sample. Tight structure, fresh cherry fruit, a very light smoky touch to finish. Fine-grained tannin that leaves quite a grip on the finish. Needs several years to unfurl. Drinking range: 2019 - 2029 Rating: 16.5+ Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)
South side, steep slope. Woods. Not a combe. Mid part is the best bit. The top part can be a bit lacking richness, but this is in the middle and good part. Very sweet aroma. Touch of very ripe redcurrant and blackcurrant. Juicy and ripe. Expressive, very juicy on the finish and a touch of iron. It has good structure and a straight finish.

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.
