Loïc opened up the tasting with this fabulous wine, as ever the tasting in this cellar takes you to another realm. The Vieilles Vignes comes from 30 to 50 year old vines. Wow. Immediately the palate is rocked by great power. A purity to the fruit is lovely. with lots of carefully ripened, cherry-edged red fruit. Nicely concentrated but there is an openness here that is specific to the vintage. A joyous bounce of red-fruited energy drives through the middle. It is more supple than some, but so joyful. A wondrous opener here. Drinking range: 2022 - 2029L&S(Nov 2018)

(vinified with 20% whole cluster). A top note of herbal tea sits atop the pretty aromas of dark berry, floral and a whiff of humus that is very Gevrey in character. The sleek, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors are not as dense as they usually are but they possess lovely depth and persistence on the somewhat austere bitter cherry pit-inflected finish.

Very spicy and dark. Lots of peppery spice on the nose and a sort of wild fruit character. Chewy on the palate, with wild cherry flavours. Dense and packed with fruit but has complementary freshness. Deep and chewy on the finish. Honest and deeply flavoured. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2018)

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ
OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.
PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.
DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.
DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.
PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
