We tasted this from tank after the Marsannay 'Montagne' and this is distinctly different! Limestone Character here - interestingly the calcaire wines are more sorted, more ready to go - those from clay, are dense and powerful - will need more time. Very pretty - good red fruit berries, nicely poised. Elegant for the vintage - sweet fruit thread through the middle but delivered with delicacy. At this early stage, all round this is looking more together than the 'Montagne'. L&S (Nov 2019)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Edge of veg on the nose. Lots of chew on the palate. Rather muscular. Not a silly price. Drinking range: 2024 - 2032 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2020)

Domaine Huguenot

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 - but this should be in place for 2020. Philippe was initially unsure if he would try for the certification again - but for all that is 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, and the domaine will continue along organic lines. Jean-Louis died suddenly just before the 2019 harvest - he will be much-missed.
