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

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 £36.00 AM90
12 75cl Savigny-Les-Beaune
'Haut Marconnets' Blanc
 1er Cru

AM - Firm reduction suggests that this would best be decanted first. There is a refreshing apple character to the lighter weight middle weight flavours that possess good vibrancy before terminating in a lingering, linear and slightly edgy finish that is borderline rustic.

2016 £28.00 AM88
12 75cl Beaune
 1er Cru

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

2016 £35.00 2020-29
36 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches' Blanc
 1er Cru

AM - A perfumed and attractively layered nose reveals notes of citrus peel, pear and soft white flower nuances. There is fine concentration to the delicious and palate coating middle weight flavours that brim with dry extract, all wrapped in a solidly complex, well-balanced and persistent finish. This will have the advantage of being enjoyable young but also rewarding 4 to 6 years of cellar time.

2012 £44.00 AM90
64 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches' Blanc
 1er Cru

AM - Background wood notes mix with mostly floral and citrus hints to serve as a graceful introduction to the rich, round and naturally sweet flavours that exude a fine minerality on the forward finish that possesses just enough grip to suggest that this will require 2 to 3 years of cellar time to arrive at its peak.

2009 £46.00 AM91


15 75cl Chassagne Montrachet
1er Cru

AM - There is noticeable but not dominant reduction present on the otherwise attractively layered aromas of resin, walnut oil and yellow orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in a subtle application of wood.
The solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavours are powerful if not elegant with excellent depth and very fine length.
This isn't going to win any awards for refinement but it's a quality effort just the same.

2012 £39.00 AM91
8 75cl Meursault
1er Cru

AM - This is aromatically more elegant but not necessarily more complex with its ever-so-mildly exotic fruit aromas where breadth is added by the presence of citrus blossom and dried yellow orchard fruit scents. I very much like the intense minerality on the middle weight flavours that possess both good volume and mid-palate flesh before concluding in a saline and persistent finish.

2012 £46.00 AM90
10 75cl Puligny Montrachet
'Les Folatieres'
 1er Cru

AM - There is a very mild trace of reduction to the otherwise cool and restrained floral and white orchard fruit aromas that display background nuances of wood and spice. There is impressive volume to the quite seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating extract that buffers well the moderately firm acid spine on the mineral-driven, dry and balanced finish. This is not presently super complex but the underlying material is certainly present to allow it to develop and my score awards the benefit of the doubt in this regard.

2011 £46.00 AM91
23 75cl Puligny Montrachet
'Les Folatieres'
 1er Cru

Wine Spectator - Ripe and lush, this resounds with peach and apricot flavours, backed by butter and toasty oak. Well-integrated, with a lively structure and a long, satisfying finish.

2010 £44.00 WS90
26 75cl Chassagne Montrachet
'Clos St Jean - Clos des Murees'
 1er Cru

AM - Reduction knocks down the nose but there is good vibrancy and freshness to the attractively detailed middle weight flavours that display a touch of minerality on the ever-so-slightly more complex finish that is clean, dry and refreshing. This is also a bit more structured and should reward another 2 to 3 years of cellar time.

2012 £39.00 AM90
One of the best Macon/Pouilly Fuissé growers, very good wine which is both rare and delicious!
6 75cl Macon Pierreclos
'1er Jus de Chavigne'

RP/William Kelley -
The 2015 Mâcon-Pierreclos 1er Jus de Chavigne is a superb achievement in this vintage, wafting from the glass with notes of toasted nuts, buttered orchard fruit and preserved citrus framed by subtle reduction. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and generous, with great purity, incisive acidity and excellent concentration. I'm happy to have a case in my own cellar.
2015 £35.00 RP/WK93
23 75cl Macon Pierreclos
'Tri de Chavigne'

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 £37.00 RP/WK93
