Although this has certainly 'put on weight' since we tasted in November this retains a positive, fresh feel - lots of nice pretty fruit. Soft, richer strawberry juice and some good earthy spice too. The delicate feel we noted in November has been replaced by a slightly more weighty and satisfying core. Not massive but a good depth of fruit and very nicely delivered. Gilles explains that even at this level they do really do try and intensify things here and get the most out of their vineyards. He evidently feels they need to make serious wines wherever they can as they lack premier or grand cru sites. This is fun but also quite a sophisticated starter here. Drinking range: 2019 - 2026 L&S (Jan 2019)

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.
