12 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson

Jancisrobinson.com/Richard 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

12 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson

 Jancisrobinson.com/Julia 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
2016-23
4 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson

Jancisrobinson.com/Julia 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.

3 75cl Chambertin Clos de Beze
Grand Cru
Chanson

Jancisrobinson.com/Julia 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.

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

Not Reviewed, but here are the winemaker's notes:
Site
: 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.

    DOMAINE COQUARD
LOISON- FLEUROT
This domaine was a serendipitous discovery in 2016 by Neal Martin of Vinous.com.
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

Jancisrobinson.com - 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

Vinous.com/Neal 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


2020-30

 

18 75cl Chambolle Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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 Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal Martin - The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Village comes from four climats scattered across the appellation and sees one-third new oak. Compared to the Chambolle Village, there is more fullness of fruit on the nose, which offers red cherries, crushed strawberry and rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity, a little piquancy toward the finish and a bit of orange zest on the aftertaste. Excellent.

2017 £60.00
NM91/100
2020-30
18 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jancisrobinson.com - Intense aroma of chestnuts and some well-managed tannins. Both this and the village Vosne are textbook examples of these appellations. Lots of juice but admirable structure underneath.

2015 £62.00
JR16.5/20
2020-30
12 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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
NM94/100
2023-40
12 75cl Clos Vougeot
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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
NM92/100
2024-38
12 75cl Clos St Denis
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal Martin - The 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru comes from vines planted in 1936, and was raised in three barrels this year (two of them new.) It has a clean, precise tightly wound bouquet of blackberry, raspberry preserve, pressed iris and subtle undergrowth, almost peaty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite masculine compared to the Clos de la Roche, and shows firmer grip and persistence on the chalky finish. Very fine and quite cerebral.

2017 £275.00
NM95/100
2023-45
6 75cl Clos St Denis
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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

2024-50
12 75cl Clos de La Roche
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal Martin  - The 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet of dark berry fruit, crushed stone and touches of truffle and iodine. It just bursts from the glass. The palate is very ripe and sweet on the entry, displaying a lot of sucrosity and a very vibrant finish laden with cola-tinged black fruit. It might just be a little too much for my palate, although I suspect it will be very seductive.

2018 £140.00

12 75cl Echezeaux
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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

Jancisrobinson.com - 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
JR16.5/20

6 75cl Vosne Romanee
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal 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.

    MAISON LOUIS JADOT
A very good Domaine and Negociant business; offering quality wines at fair prices (especially considering current Burgundy price rises!)
   
 
12 37.5cl Gevrey Clos St Jacques
1er Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/Neal Martin -
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a composed bouquet with dark cherry, red plum, a light estuarine influence seeping through with aeration, all with good intensity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, tensile with a brisk and quite punchy finish. I thought it might be Bruno Clair's Clos Saint Jacques before its identity was revealed - a classy number from the Jadot team. Tasted September 2016.

HALF-BOTTLES - a great way to try a top wine, without having to pay the full price for standard bottle.

2013 £61.00 RP/NM93
2019-34
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.

    MAISON LUCIEN LE MOINE
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.
Outstanding.
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
