These vineyards are closer to Quintaine, compared to Domaine de Roally. There is a touch of white marl along with some active limestone. In other words, this is a blend of Viré and Quintaine soils. Full yellow and more evolved nose, totally different in style. Fatter a bit, softer certainly, toastier too. Then sweet peaches with a greener touch and long perfumed finish with spice. Rating: 90 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Jan 2020)

Domaine Émilian Gillet

Jean Thévenet is a legend in these parts and thankfully still pops up whenever we visit the cellar to taste. However it is Gautier, his son who has been running the domaine now for some time. The handover of knowledge and practices has been complete and the domaine continues to blaze a trail. The wines are fabulous, hand-crafted beauties, with extraordinary texture, complexity and impact. The Thevenet family continue to conjure up magic here in this corner of the Maconnais. From old vines the comes impeccable fruit - some picked quite late in the season - it then undergoes very long slow fermentations that gentlly bubble on for weeks and it is this controlled approach which brings so much to the wines. These are esoteric but not odd - just fantastically enjoyable drinking that punch well above their weight.
