    DOMAINE ARLAUD
Excellent domaine, that has been going from strength to strength since 2001; with the 2005 vintage being a real high-point!
A fully ORGANIC Domaine; even horse and plough are now being used!
     
6 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Domaine Arlaud

 AM -
The supple, round and strikingly refined, indeed even silky flavours possess focused power and punch while offering outstanding length on the dusty, palate coating and mildly austere finale. This is an exercise in harmony and refinement.
2015 £144.00 AM94
2020-35
           
    DOMAINE ARNOUX-LACHAUX
A Top Quality domaine, producing wines of finesse and structure, but with good ageing potential.
     
2 75cl Nuits St Georges
 "Les Proces"

1er Cru
Arnoux-Lachaux
AM -
An exceptionally fresh, pure and airy nose offers up notes of relatively elegant red currant aromas that enjoy added breadth in the form of floral, spice, earth and just enough wood influence to notice. There is good density and fine complexity to the medium weight flavours that possess lovely balance and length. This is sufficiently supple that it will be approachable young but the fine but dense tannins are such that this will require at least a decade of cellar time to realize its full potential.

    NICOLAS POTEL DOMAINE de BELLENE
One of the best addresses for quality Burgundy at a reasonable price.
Run by Nicholas Potel;
this is both a negociant (Maison Roche de Bellene) and  domaine (Domaine de Bellene) - the latter now consists of some 22 hectares which are being converted to organic farming.
   
 
6 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
'Les Cazetiers'
1er Cru
Maison Roche de Bellene

 AM -
A fresh, cool and pure nose of stone and ripe red pinot fruit reflects none of the bizarre character of the prior two Gevrey 1ers nor do the detailed, intense and energetic flavours that are not especially concentrated but they do possess fine balance and reasonably good length.
2009 £41.00 AM91
2018-27

4 75cl Nuits St Georges
'Aux Chaignots'
1er Cru
Domaine de Bellene

 AM -
A lightly spiced wild red and black berry nose is enrobed in plenty of Nuits style earth that also suffuses the attractively textured and mouth coating flavours that possess very firm but not hard tannins. However, they are sufficiently robust to convey a sense of rusticity to the impressively persistent finish.

    DOMAINE CLOS FRANTIN
Excellent Domaine,
always maintains a high standard, so this assures excellent quality to price!
(Since 1969 owned by top Beaune negociant Albert Bichot).
Highly Recommended

75cl
Vosne Romanee
'Malconsorts'
1er Cru
Domaine Clos Frantin

AM -
Almost invisible wood frames subtly spiced ripe black cherry and plum aromas that lead to powerful and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavours that possess the usual Malconsorts taut muscularity and robust punch on the mouth coating finish. This should be excellent but note that 10 to 12 years will be required first.
2010 £110.00

    BOUCHARD Pére & Fils
Excellent negociant, with large holdings of own domaine vineyards.
Always maintains a very high standard, so this assures excellent quality to price!
Highly Recommended

75cl
Beaune Gréves
'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
There is a trace of reduction present but not enough to materially detract from the violet, plum and liqueur-like dark currant aromas that are trimmed in a discreet application of wood. There is a beguiling sense of underlying tension to the broad-shouldered, rich, intense and like the Clos de la Mousse, relatively powerful flavours that exude a fine minerality on the serious, balanced and saline-inflected finish. This should be excellent in time though note that patience will be required.
