2017 1er Cru Champs Martin Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Faces due south and so the bright and peppy attack is surprising at first - but then more weight and ripeness builds quite quickly. This is nicely done. An energy and bounce here that is more pronounced than with the other Reds tasted here. It flows on with great momentum and silky edged juice, impressively voluptuous but the juice is just piquant enough. Good measure. Strawberries and some plum meld together well - attractive and satisfying. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 L&S (Nov 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.
Pale ruby. Not fully ripe fruit but pretty on the nose. Soft, mildly spicy and easy, light drinking. Cinnamon note! Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2019)
Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Domaine Jacqueson consists now of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in 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, Marie and Pierre, 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 négociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.
As usual the élevage in barrel here is extremely precise and delicately done with around 20% new wood, the Premiers Crus getting barrels with a little more toast.
Something for every element of your Easter. From a crisp and refreshing Verdicchio to tantalise your taste buds, to a variety of robust and elegant red wines that will suit any preparation of roast lamb, to a delicious and elegant rosé Champagne that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with your dinner, this has it all. We've even included a bottle of stunning Tawny Port for anyone looking to spice up their Easter eggs or hot cross buns.
