2017 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE (FOGA60217A)
Very seductive spicy raspberry fruit is backed by soft rounded tannins and a bright energetic finish. This is forward and quite delicious.
2016 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE (FOGA60216A)
Powerful, dense and very juicy spicy red fruit explodes on the palate, balanced by a firm tannic structure that gives unusual length.
2015 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE (FOGA60215A)
Pretty raspberry fruit in a warm, rich wine that is pure, vibrant and long. Very lovely, and can be approached young.
2014 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE (FOGA60214A)
Delicate red fruit of good density in the mid-palate and an elegant finish with a hint of mineral. Drink 2017 ' 2023
2013 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE (FOGA60213A)
Pretty ripe red fruits underpinned by well balanced tannins. Nicely rounded, and can be drunk young.
2017 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE 1er cru, Clos St. Jean (FOGA64217A)
A knot of perfumed and delicate fruit is enveloped by rich, silky tannins and bright acidity; the finish is spicy, fresh and persistent.
2016 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE 1er cru (FOGA64216A)
This year a blend of Morgeot and Clos St. Jean. Normally these two cuvées would total ten barrels, but in 2016 there were just three. It is full of vibrant energy, power, dense red fruit, spice and fine minerality, and finishes on an attractive note of black chocolate and coffee.
2014 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET ROUGE 1er cru, Clos St. Jean (FOGA64214A)
Gorgeously seductive red fruit, very sweet and ripe, with fine supple tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2017 ' 2025
2017 VOLNAY 1er Cru, Clos-des-Chênes (FOGA66217A)
Under the powerful violet-scented red fruit are notes of clove and a hint of orange peel; the tannins are typically firm, but they are fine and supple, and no barrier to drinking this delicious fresh wine young.
2016 VOLNAY 1er Cru, Clos-des-Chênes (FOGA66216A)
A yield of just 9 hl/ha has given a voluptuous, finely structured wine with fresh crunchy red fruit, enormous intensity and excellent length.
2015 VOLNAY 1er Cru, Clos-des-Chênes (FOGA66215A)
Structured and elegant, with ripe floral and raspberry fruit, fine tannins and a violet-tinged finish.
2014 VOLNAY 1er Cru, Clos-des-Chênes (FOGA66214A)
Concentrated and dense but never aggressive, this has a more serious tannic structure that will reward ageing. The fruit is bright, red and clearly-defined, and there is a delicate mineral flourish on the long finish. Drink 2021 ' 2030
2013 VOLNAY 1er Cru, Clos-des-Chênes (FOGA66213A)
50-year-old vines give even more depth to a vineyard noted for its power. Dark, spicy fruit, dense and fine, brightened by vibrant acidity, leads to a long intense finish.
2017 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET (FOGA12217A)
The pithy grapefruit and citrus fruit in this fresh, forward wine has a melting elegance, and there is density and persistence, too.
2017 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1er cru, Les Vergers (FOGA26217A)
Richness without weight: there is dense, pithy grapefruit, fresh ripe citrus acidity and a very gentle, long broad salty finish. A particularly successful Vergers.
2016 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1er cru, Les Vergers (FOGA26216A)
There is typical bright citrus fruit and fine minerality on show here, as well as great concentration which makes it a little ungiving. In time it will relax.
2015 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1er cru, Les Vergers (FOGA26215A)
Expressive soft yellow fruit is balanced by a fine minerality that keeps the wine fresh, and there is a nicely defined ripe finish.
2014 CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET 1er cru, Les Vergers (FOGA26214A)
From vines planted in 1972, which always ripen well, and are usually the first to be harvested. Very accessible, showing lovely bright citrus fruit, a fine effortless ease across the palate, and a long fresh finish. Drink 2020 ' 2027
