12 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson Hemming MW - Excellent floral fragrance – open, spicy, expressive. Pure red fruits too – redcurrant, cranberry. Smooth and rounded in texture, yet with enough tannin to support long ageing. Superb length.

2016 £60.00



13 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson Harding MW
- Darker, riper and spicier than the Nuits-St-Georges. Tannins are extremely fine, dry and light but there's harmony overall in a lighter mode.
2012 £32.00 JH16/20
4 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson Harding MW -
Utterly intoxicating and inviting aroma of dark fruit and a light sprinkling of spice. Beautifully fresh and dry, tannins are refined, a little chalky, but perfectly ripe. Not particularly concentrated but long and elegant.
2012 £120.00 JH17.5/20
3 75cl Chambertin Clos de Beze
Grand Cru
Chanson Harding MW -
Cask sample. Mid dark crimson. Sweet oak spice entwined with really ripe cherry fruit. Dark, dry finesse on the palate. Extremely elegant but all hidden at the moment. Plenty of freshness like a seam through the dark, dry youthful reticence.
2015 £240.00 JH18/20

2 75cl Vosne Romanee
'Les Suchots'
1er Cru

Not Reviewed, but here are the winemaker's notes:
: The climat "Les Suchots" is located on a mid slope in the Northern part of the village of Vosne Romanée in the Côte de Nuits. Its nearest neighbour is the famous "Romanée Saint Vivant". 

Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense aromas of raspberry liquor mixed with spices. Well-structured and well-balanced. Complex with a good volume. Elegant oak note and well-crafted tannins. Long aftertaste.

2015 £85.00

This domaine was a serendipitous discovery in 2016 by Neal Martin of
Here are some of his comments:
Winemaker Thomas Colladot allows the vineyards to articulate their own personalities so that each one offers its own take on the vintage. Clever winemaking matched with excellent terroirs.
    Bearing in mind the cost explosion of quality Burgundy in the last 3-4 years, these wines offer relative 'value' compared to the better known domaine's.
10 75cl Bourgogne Rouge
Coquard Loison-Fleurot - Cask sample. Light purplish crimson. Pure, intense nose. Very fine, polished fruit with good tannin management. Juicy stuff! Firm structure is well hidden underneath spicy fruit. Grainy finish.

2015 £29.00



24 75cl Bourgogne Rouge
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge has a perfumed bouquet of black currant and raspberry aromas, all very pure and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of black fruit and a precise finish. This is very fine for a generic red Burgundy.

2018 £26.00



4 75cl Chambolle Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Currently not reviewed - TOP vintage, so well worth a try!

2015 £68.00



18 75cl Chambolle Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village, matured in 30% new oak, has a generous bouquet of red berry fruit, plus touches of brown spice and light loamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and lightly spiced red berry fruit mixed with white pepper and sage, dovetailing into a slightly compact but fresh finish. Fine.

2018 £65.00



12 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was showing a touch of reduction on the nose, but underneath are fine blackberry and raspberry aromas and touches of potpourri and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained, supple tannins, superb acidity and a harmonious, silky finish. Excellent.

2018 £188.00
12 75cl Clos Vougeot
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, which took the longest to finish its alcoholic fermentation, has a ripe, opulent bouquet of black cherries, blueberry and cassis aromas, perhaps not displaying the delineation of the previous two vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, fine acidity and good energy. The grippy, slightly oaky finish will need time to knit together. Give it three or four years in bottle.

2018 £158.00
6 75cl Clos St Denis
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru was the most closed and backward on the nose when I tasted the wines from barrel, but there is tightly coiled energy here, along with orange-sorbet-infused red fruit. The palate is beautifully defined with a slightly grainy texture, fine tannins and disarming purity of fruit toward the crystalline finish. An outstanding 2018 from CLF.

2018 £320.00
12 75cl Echezeaux
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a fragrant, perfumed bouquet with violet and iris petals infusing shimmering black cherry and wild strawberry fruit; touches of orange pith emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very harmonious, showing a velvety texture that is very sleek and tempting. A lovely Echezeaux.

2018 £175.00
10 75cl Vosne Romanee
Coquard Loison-Fleurot - Particularly deep crimson. Savoury, relatively layered nose. Some oak just perceptible but the bitter-cherry fruit dominates it. Really quite fine and very energetic. Admirably long and well constructed. A success – and a steal relative to the Cathiard version!

2015 £72.00
6 75cl Vosne Romanee
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village, which comes in at 14.4% alcohol this year, does feel a little smudged on the nose compared to other crus. The palate is ripe and heady with opulent black and blueberry fruit, displaying fine acidity and white pepper and thyme toward the finish. It’s a wine that I think will drink best in the flush of youth.

2018 £65.00
A very good Domaine and Negociant business; offering quality wines at fair prices (especially considering current Burgundy price rises!)
5 75cl Clos de la Roche
Grand Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/Neal Martin -
The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savoury on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervosité or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine.
2014 £150.00 RP/AG92
A very good Micro-Negociant business, making excellent long lasting wines from only the best bought-in grapes.
These wines are best decanted before serving.
6 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Lavaut St Jacques

1er Cru
Lucien Le Moine

AM -
This is cut from a similar cloth to that of the Estournelles as this is also aromatically fresh and cool, indeed almost cold with pure essence of red pinot fruit, liquid stone and a hint of the sauvage. The mouth feel of the strikingly well-delineated flavours is nothing but satin before exploding into a sleekly muscular and precise finish. This is also gorgeously transparent with a Zen-like sense of poise.
2010 £110.00 AM94

Excellent Vintage!


6 75cl Nuits Saint Georges
Les Vaucrains

1er Cru
Lucien Le Moine

AM -
As one would expect, this is bigger, richer and more powerful with broad-scaled and overtly muscular flavours that are extremely serious and sombre, all wrapped in a palate staining and imposingly structured finish that exhibits huge length. There isn't the refinement of the Les Cailles or Les St. Georges but for fans of power Burgundy, this delivers.
2009 £105.00 AM93
