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: Mix any 12 bottles 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

The adventurous and sportif Paul Jacqueson has been at the head of this domaine for many years - but now his daughter Marie is heavily involved as the next generation moves in, this is no bad thing at all as she was named 'Young Winemaker of the Year' at the Hospices de Beaune in 2010 and she now represents the third generation of Jacquesons to be making wine here since her grandfather Henri started off in the 1950's with a small parcel of Aligoté.

They are making wines of impeccable quality, close indeed to their much more expensive cousins on the Côte d'Or. We have a particular fondness for the whites, and especially the Pucelle, which is a model of what a great Rully can be year after year. However, the reds too are on a charge and improve almost every year.
