2018 1er Cru Grésigny Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Bottled a week earlier than the Pucelle, this was showing more 'in place'. Sometimes the Gresigny can seem to need a little longer to come round, but in this vintage it seems it will drink alongside the Pucelle. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 L&S (Nov 2019)
*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.
A little more restrained on the nose than Margotés, the palate is tight and has loads of fresh acidity to support the good intensity and fruit concentration. A long finish. Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 16.5 Alistair Cooper MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2020)
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.
