Cask sample. Greater concentration of fruit than their Terres Nobles, but less expression of perfume. The palate has reassuringly full concentration and tannic grip to suggest good development of complexity in future. Drinking range: 2020 - 2040 Rating: 17+ Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Feb 2018)
*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.
Dark, rich and spicy with a touch of chocolate on the nose. Rich, compact and dense for a village wine. Plenty of sweet acidity..this has a more muscle with a bite to the tannins and grip. Burly and energetic. Needs some time. Drinking range: 2022 - Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2017)
Domaine de la Douaix
Mark and Gilles Moustie are Belgians, huge fans of wine and in particular Burgundy. The family rented a gite for many years in the Hautes Côtes village of Arcenant, straight up the hill to the west of Nuits Saint Georges, and gently graduated from buying wines at domaines up and down the Côte to wanting to make the wine themselves. Eventually they bought some vines and a house with cellars, and set to.
Most of their wines are all from vines they own, but they do make a little wine from bought-in fruit to supplement what is still a tiny domaine. Mark is Belgium-based, a management consultant, so it is his son Gilles who is hands-on on a daily basis.
