2016 1er Cru Champs Martin Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Tasted at an unfortunate time - just being prepped for bottling and it is a little unhappy - with sulphur showing quite strongly at this moment on the nose. The palate is also a tad awkward for now. But good small, sweet red berries, some Hawthorne and green leafy crunch too. Good more serious and firm - but more to come - just quite tight for now. L&S (Dec 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Lively and quite inky. Pretty wine Drinking range: 2023 - 2028 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2018)
Cherry and plum with rose petal and simple spices. After an expressive nose, the palate is light and short, but technically well balanced. Adheres to the expectation at this level – attractive fruit but fairly low concentration. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 16 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2018)
Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Marie, named 'Young Winemaker of the Year' at the Hospices de Beaune as long ago as 2010, represents the third generation of Jacquesons to be making wine here. She was joined at the domaine by her brother Pierre in 2015. Her grandfather Henri started off in 1946 with a small parcel of Aligoté. Henri was quite a pioneer at a time when Rully was not well-known, the vineyards having been substantially abandoned after the first world war. Paul, Henri's son and father of the current generation, was responsible for the drive to quality which gained the domaine its reputation. He still active in support of his children.
The domaine consists now of 13 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also parcels in Mercurey and Bouzeron. The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood). Under Paul, and now by his children, the domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve, and this rubs off on the ,em>negociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.
We have always loved the whites, and especially the Pucelle, which is a model of what a great Rully can be year after year, but the reds are increasingly not to be missed - red Burgundies at sensible prices which have crunchy fresh Pinot fruit, and an excellent velvet feel.
