La Créole is a gem of a site, between Gevrey Chambertin Les Crais and the family's Fixin holdings. A mix of clay and small gravel stones. This is, as slways, softish and yet elegant. The lovely plump fruit is showy. Giving a delicous impression of being very easy. Soft and rich fruit up front - nice lift and gentle tannins build on finish very nicely. Its all here. Lovely soft ripe red fruit flesh and just the right reins to gather it to - and give fine shape and flow. L&S (Nov 2019)

Pale crimson. Light, fresh and vegy on the nose. Good energy in a lightish vein. Some sweetness. Drinking range: 2023 - 2029 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2020)
The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe took the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010), but immensely sadly he was forced to do a single non-organic treatment in 2016, because of the terrible conditions, so he was back to square one - three years to re-qualify for the organic label. Nevertheless Philippe, although initially unsure if he would try for the certification again was not planning to change the way he works - it is, he assures us, better for him and the environment and and his workers as well as for quality. So he fought his way back, and the wines have been certified organic again since 2019.
