Next to the famous Clos des Mouches, in the middle of the hillside, our Aigrots are oriented to the East. This climate, with stony soil and rich in silt and clay, produces full-bodied and generous red wines (75 acres) to be enjoyed with grilled red meats or in sauce.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points. Burghound 91 points. "A concentrated, ripe wine with the potential for great fruit as well as structure, this already offers bold fruits. With its tannins and juicy ref berry-flavors, it will be a fine wine from 2023." - R.V. Published 12/1/2019 for Wine Enthusiast. With an area of 1, 27 ha, this plot located in the middle of the hillside looks to the Southeast. Its soil has a good balance between limestone, silt and clay. A name derives from a former owner a canon of the 13th century, Johannis Bressand. The wines are of great finesse and are revealed in the mouth by a frank flesh, dense and velvety presence.
Wine Enthusiast 90 points. Burgnound 89 points. "Smoky aromas and firm tannins show that this wine is still young. With the backing of red fruits, it has a good future. Acidity and a solid structure still show strongly, so wait to drink until 2023. "- R.V. Published 12/1/2019, Wine Enthusiast.
Small in size (12 acres), our Grèves are located at the bottom of the hill. Its name comes from the composition of the soils: light, stony. The red wines are fine, as much by their fruit aromas as by their flavors.
BH:"There is a whiff of prune to the markedly ripe aromas of plum liqueur and warm earth. The palate impression is also almost liqueur-like with lavish richness to the full-bodied and palate saturating flavors that brim with dry extract on the firm and dusty finish. This is not especially complex and the nose frankly isn't for me but for those who enjoy super-rich burgundies this would qualify." April 2017 Drink: 2023+ This plot of 67 acres is located at the top of the hill and looks to the southeast. It enjoys a limestone soil mixed with silt, sand and clay.

Wine Enthusiast 94 points. In the heart of the massive run of premier crus on the slopes above the city of Beaune, this vineyard has produced a wine with powerful tannins and great swathes of black fruits. It needs to age and will not be ready until 2023. - R.V. Published 12/1/2019. Wine Enthusiast.
This plot of 77 acres is oriented southeast, its soil is composed of silt, clay and limestone. This vine "placed under the protection of all the saints" produces rich wines, nose of red fruits and a good complexity in the mouth.

Les Bressandes is a climat of the Corton Grand Cru appellation in the Cote de Beaune district of Burgundy. The site is located on the eastern mid-slopes of the Montagne de Corton hill, immediately below the Clos du Roi and Renardes climats. #burg15
Burghound 90-93. "A cool, ripe and unusually elegant nose blends notes of pure essence of red cherry with those of dark raspberry and a hint of forest floor. The more typical character of a fine Fournières emerges on the palate however as the robust and powerful big-bodied flavors possess plenty of muscle on the very firmly constituted finish where a hint of warmth can be found. This is a very impressive showing and one that is highly recommended if you have the patience to cellar it." April 2017 ALOXE-CORTON 1ER CRU LES FOURNIERES SITUATION ALOXE-CORTON is one of the villages of the North of the Côte de Beaune. It benefits from an...
Burghound 88-91. "A pungent nose of wood and reduction renders the nose difficult to assess. Otherwise the mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is also relatively fine with a lovely sense of energy that carries over to the dusty and mildly austere finish that offers notably better depth and length. This is unusually ripe for a vineyard that is found at considerable altitude and is worth checking out. BEAUNE CLOS DE LA "CHAUME GAUFRIOT AREA The plots of BEAUNE CLOS OF THE CHAUME GAUFRIOT of the Domain extend on a surface of 77 ares. The CLOS DE LA CHAUME GAUFRIOT is a monopoly of the Domaine.

Burghoud (91-94): "A more elegant, pure and beautifully layered nose presents a range of red berries that are nuanced by plum, floral and soft earth hints. There is outstanding volume to the dense and serious yet relatively refined flavors that possess excellent size and weight while remaining impeccably well-balanced on the lingering finish. This is a classic Bressandes that is at once built-to-age yet should drink reasonably well after only 5-ish years or so." April 2017 Possibly the best value Grand Cru we have ever seen.

Burghound 90-93. "Here the wood treatment is no longer subtle with menthol nuances fighting somewhat with the liqueur-like aromas of both red and dark currant, spice and violet scents. There is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the beguilingly textured flavors that possess that wonderful inner-mouth perfume, all wrapped in a stony, serious, moderately austere and gorgeously long finale. Like a number of wines in the range there is a touch of finishing warmth but overall this is lovely. Moreover, the concentration is such that I don't believe that there will be an issue with successfully integrating the generous oak application."...
WA 96 There are 10,000 bottles of the stunning 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père, which is good news for lovers of 100% Grenache. Drawn from a single parcel in the lieu-dit of Gardiole (mostly sandy soils), half of the fruit was destemmed. It's full-bodied and concentrated but silky and refined, with scintillating purity of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by crisp acids and enlivening hints of orange zest on the long, reverberating finish. It's a terrific value that should drink well for more than a decade.JC Sep 2018.
SOLD OUT AT WINERY. Wine Advocate 97-99 points. I was blown away by the prodigious fruit in the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes. Quantities are only maybe half of the 2016, so you can imagine how concentrated and rich this baby is. Waves of raspberry and cherry fruit are seductive on the nose, then crash over the palate with a tsunami of concentration and power. If time in the cellar can coax some additional elegance out of the wine, it could be a candidate for perfection. JC Sept 2018.
Wine Advocate 91-94. Full-bodied, rich and chocolaty, the super ripe 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition isn't as fine and silky as the 2016, but it shows plenty of power and blueberry and cherry fruit. It will be interesting to see how it emerges at the end of its élevage, as top-notch raw materials are present. JC Sept 2018.
WA 97 The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape la Folie is a special cuvée that has only been made three times: in 2007, 2015 and 2016. As Nicolas Boiron points out, it's a "modern style" of Châteauneuf, completely destemmed and aged in demi-muids and barriques, with a fair proportion of those barrels being new. Mocha cedar notes mark the nose at this early age, while the flavors resemble caramelized cherries and baking spices. Full-bodied, rich, creamy and undeniably plush, it's still recognizable as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, showing velvety hints of chocolate on the long finish. The assemblage is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. JC Sep 2018. The best...
Wine Advocate 91 points. Completely destemmed and raised entirely in concrete, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Domaine Nicolas Boiron is a serious Côtes du Rhône. The blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied and rich, with hints of tar and black olive layered over ripe black cherries. A bit of licorice emerges on the long, silky finish. Drink this beauty over the next 5-7 years. JC Sept 2018.

The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages.

You know, this is the best Lanessan for a long time, perchance because Mon. De Bouard is consulting? NM Apr 2016. Floral nose and good firmness and depth.

Le Clos du Roi is a climat of the Corton Grand Cru appellation in the Cote de Beaune district of Burgundy. This walled site is located high on the eastern slopes of the Montagne de Corton hill, and is characterized by pebbly, marlstone soils rich in iron oolite. Wines from the Clos du Roi are known for having an excellent balance of power and finesse. #burg15
Pommard is for many the most familiar Burgundy appellation. The village itself lies approximately 2 miles south of Beaune, and the total appellation is fairly extensive, covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic. #burg15
Les Chaumes is a large Premier Cru climat located at the southern end of the Vosne-Romanee appellation in the Cote de Nuits. This vineyard, which is lower on the Cote d'Or than many of the appellation's most famous vineyards, is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. Les Chaumes Premier Cru wines are full bodied and supple, but not as refined as their Grand Cru neighbors. #burg15
