Next to the famous Clos des Mouches, in the middle of the hillside, our Aigrots are oriented to the East. This climat, with stony ground and rich in silt and clay, produces rich white wines with mineral tones (25 acres). "There is still a bit of residual post-bottling sulfur present that pushes the citrusy white-fleshed fruit aromas to the background. Otherwise there is excellent intensity to the slightly more voluminous flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the clean, dry and sneaky long finish. Note that this could easily be enjoyed young or cellared for a few years in the hopes that more depth will gradually develop." BH 90
Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru la Bataillère aux Vergelesses – White – Monopole Extending over 0.67 hectares (0.15 acres), this Chardonnay’s plot facing south/south-east is new in the domaine (The vines were planted in 2013). Its soil is composed mainly of limestone and sand. Named after a previous owner, Mr. Bataille, the vineyard lies next to the road from Beaune to Vergy (thus “Vergelesses” or, in 830, “Vergelosses”). 2018 is the second vintage of this white wine, with an expressive smell of exotic fruits, followed by a nice and fresh taste, with just enough body to be perfect. It will deliciously fit with your fish papillotes...
WS 94-97 WA 94-96 Drink 2019 - 2040 The 2015 Coutet... has a fragrant bouquet with acacia honey, citrus scents and a touch of melted butter, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive purity, those limestone soils imparting the acidity that defined this Barsac, and lending great precision and tension on the live-wire finish. This is a wonderful Coutet that feels energetic - a compressed spring coil that will drink earlier than the likes of Climens or de Fargues, but has the DNA to age gracefully over 25-30 years.NM Apr 2016. #3 Wine Spectator Top 100 for the 2014 vintage in 2017
In the vineyard... Of a rather high altitude (275 to 285 m) and steeply sloped, this plot of 37 ares, on calcareous and very stony ground, has a very hard limestone base which gives to the Pinot Blanc its rich and sharp character. Planted in 1992, the typicity of this very particular wine assert itself year after year. In the glass... Pinot Blanc is an vine indigenous to Burgundy, although mainly grown now in Alsace. After wine making and 12 months breeding in 40% new oak barrels, it gives a mineral and fruity wine, with pear notes, exotic fruits and much mouth feel. Balanced particularly well, it promises to age beneficially. At the...

Alan Meadows: "A distinctly cool and restrained nose somewhat grudgingly offers up notes of dried orchard fruit, oyster shell, citrus and a suggestion of iodine. The more tightly wound and mineral-driven flavors possess a bit more size and weight along with much better power on the sappy, concentrated and impressively intense and persistent finish. This too is really very good and worth considering." 93/100 The Grenouille or "Frog" is the flagship wine of the estate. This grand cru is hand harvested from vines older than 50 years, their roots deep in soils that are a mixture of clay and limestone. The wine is matured for 18 months in oak...
Burghound 93 points: ""A much more restrained if not entirely mute nose grudgingly offers up notes of cool citrus, green fruit, iodine and oyster shell nuances. There is excellent richness and density to the bigger-bodied flavors that possess excellent power and a slightly firm acid spine that shapes the bone dry and beautifully lingering finish where the only reproach is a touch of warmth. Excellent development potential here."" The Grenouille or "Frog" is the flagship wine of the estate. This grand cru is hand harvested from vines older than 50 years, their roots deep in soils that are a mixture of clay and limestone. The wine is matured...

Sancerre is a small wine district in central France, famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. The classic Sancerre wine is white, bracingly acidic, and has pungent aromas of gooseberries, grass, nettles, and a hint of stony minerality. Richer, riper examples – particularly those from warmer, west-facing sites with chalky soils – often show fruitier notes of passionfruit and lemon peel. Sancerre is typically less 'obvious' than the most famous New World styles of Sauvignon Blanc. La Poussie Sancerre Blanc sees its origins dating back to the Capetian era. The vineyards dominate the Loire and produce a dry and...
