    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!
     
11 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
'Aux Combottes'
1er Cru
Domaine Arlaud

 AM -
This is notably cool with relatively deeply pitched red and dark berry fruit aromas that precede detailed and sappy medium-bodied flavours that possess excellent precision and ample amounts of underlying tension on the clean, firm and beautifully detailed finish. This is really very pretty and if it can add depth with time in bottle my rating may be slightly conservative.
Outstanding
2010 £65.00 AM91
2016-26
6 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Domaine Arlaud

 AM -
An expressive and airy earth and red fruited nose infused with subtle spice and game notes that precede textured and exceptionally rich mouth coating flavours that are not overly complex at present but they are powerful, intense and long, indeed the length is flat out stunning.
2005 £132.00 AM94
2014-30
6 75cl Morey St Denis
Domaine Arlaud

 AM -
This is relatively elegant and very, very fresh with pretty red and blue pinot fruit aromas that are cut with notes of earth and a whiff of the sauvage that can also be found on the delicious and solidly complex middle weight flavours that possess fine vibrancy on the lingering finish. This is not overly refined but it's very well-balanced and delivers fine quality for its level.
2009 £35.00 AM90
2012-22
3 75cl Morey St Denis
'Les Ruchots'
1er Cru
Domaine Arlaud

 AM -
Ruchots is in my estimation the finest of the Morey 1ers and this example will only serve to reinforce that point of view as it again delivers grand cru like quality. A riper and more deeply pitched nose features a complex blend of red and blue pinot fruit with lovely violet and earth nuances that continue onto the round, rich, suave and generous flavours that possess good volume and excellent balance plus fine aging potential.
2006 £55.00 AM92
2013-28
           
    DOMAINE ARNOUX-LACHAUX
A Top Quality domaine, producing wines of finesse and structure, but with good ageing potential.
     
12 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.
2012 £58.00 AM92
2017-28
22 75cl Vosne Romanee
Arnoux-Lachaux
AM -
This is more deeply pitched as it combines plenty of Vosne spice and floral notes with plum and dark currant scents.
The energetic middle weight flavours possess a beguiling texture as the supporting tannins are well-integrated
and notably ripe plus the dusty and mouth coating finish is well-balanced and solidly persistent.
2012 £48.00 AM91

    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.
   
 
12 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 £42.00 AM91

15 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
'Lavaux St Jacques'
1er Cru
Maison Roche de Bellene

 ST -
Good full red. Musky raspberry, coffee and mocha on the nose. Offers an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity, with vibrant flavours of cranberry and pomegranate dominating.
Displays its inherent complexity on the very long but subtle finish, which saturates the palate with sappy crushed red berry flavors lifted by flowers.

2010 £52.00 ST95
2016-25
40 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
'Lavaux St Jacques'
1er Cru
Maison Roche de Bellene

 ST -
Bright, dark red. Subdued but pure aromas of red berries, smoky minerals and sweet oak. Ripe, broad, supple and sweet, but without quite the precision of the Cazetiers. The sweet cherry flavour is joined by strong oaky torrefaction notes of espresso and chocolate. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins.
2009 £45.00 ST92
2015-22
23 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.

    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

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.

Volnay
'Les Caillerets-Ancienne Cuvee Carnot'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
Proust noted that hail damage ruined about 15% of the crop but that Bouchard took no chances and declassified about 50% of the total. Relatively strong reduction dominates the nose though there is ample body and richness to the suave yet precise flavours that exude a fine minerality on the very ripe finish that offers excellent volume if less complexity than usual.
