12 75cl Pernand-Vergelesses
'Les Caradeux'
Blanc
 1er Cru
Chanson

AM - Here too there is just enough reduction to partially mask the underlying fruit and in this case I would suggest giving this a quick but thorough aeration.
The bigger and richer medium-bodied flavours possess slightly better mid-palate density along with evident minerality on the delicious, citrusy and solidly complex finale.

2017 £32.00 AM90

12 75cl Beaune
'Bastion'
Blanc
 1er Cru
Chanson

Not Reviewed; but a good value Beaune Blanc - well worth a try!

2016 £32.00 2020-29
           
    DOMAINE FONTAINE GAGNARD
Excellent domaine, making really good Chassagne/Batard wines - Highly Recommended!
     
6 75cl Criots Batard Montrachet
Grand Cru
Fontaine-Gagnard

AM - Criots, because of its amphitheatre-like shape that heats up, often is quite exotic. This version is not an exception though in this case it's less than usual as the yellow orchard fruit and dried floral aromas are wonderfully fresh. There is excellent volume to the focused, detailed and powerful medium weight plus flavours that brim with plenty of mouth coating dry extract that imparts a seductive palate impression to the impressively deep and long finish. This is sufficiently firm that it will need the better part of a decade to arrive at its full maturity but it should still be approachable after 5 to 6 years if desired.

2011 £225.00 AM93

    DOMAINE
 GUFFENS-HEYNEN
One of the best Macon/Pouilly Fuissé growers, very good wine which is both rare and delicious!
     
7 75cl Macon Pierreclos
'Tri de Chavigne'
Guffens-Heynen

RP/William Kelley -
The 2018 Mâcon-Pierreclos Tri de Chavigne is the fruit of three successive passages through the vines over the course of a single week, and it's showing very well, displaying aromas of buttered orchard fruits and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with terrific cut and a long, lip-smacking finish. Guffens explained that yields for this cuvée were in the region of 40-45 hectolitres per hectare.
2018 £31.00 RP/WK93
2020-32
           
    DOMAINE
 HUBERT de MONTILLE
A Top domaine making expressive and long lasting wines.
     
3 75cl Corton Charlemagne
 Grand Cru
Hubert de Montille

AM -
The nose is quite reduced and impossible to assess. In the same fashion as the Perrières. There is a lovely sense of tension and complexity to the slightly denser and more powerful flavours that exude a note of green apple on the dry but not really austere finale. This too should benefit from a few years of cellar time to better harmonize but it should be worth the wait.
2013 £102.00 AM93
