2017 BOURGOGNE Hautes-Côtes- de-Beaune 'Au Crétot' (CAMI06217A)
Crétot is a north-facing vineyard with limestone soils that is slow to ripen, so one of the last to be harvested. It has excelled in this vintage, producing a pure, poised wine with just the right amount of tannic structure to support the perfumed rich fresh fruit, along with a long salty finish
2017 SANTENAY (CAMI12217A)
From two plots - Les Bras, with pebbly soil, and Les Sauni'res, made up of heavier red soils - one below and one above the Clos Rousseau. Here is all that is good about Santenay: a lively wine with gentle, crunchy, soft red fruit, fine structured tannins and a persistent mineral finish.
2017 MARSANNAY 'Les Longeroies' (CAMI16217A)
A blend of grapes, some grown on limestone-rich soils on the upper slopes, and others from old vines in clay soils lower down. It is well defined and fresh, with rich ripe black fruit, lashings of spice, dark chocolaty tannins and a vibrant finish.
2017 MARANGES 1er cru Le Croix Moines (CAMI22217A)
The last 1er cru of the Côte de Beaune, the vineyard has white marl soils. The grapes are sourced from the top of the hill, and are always ripe, but never too much so, as the terroir lends firmness. There is lovely fruit density here, full of strawberry, raspberry and blueberry, with balancing rich tannins and a hint of spice on the long fresh finish.
2017 VOSNE-ROMANEE 'Les Chalandins' (CAMI30217A)
Les Chalandins is neatly situated below Echézeaux, close to the wall of Clos Vougeot. The vines range in age from 25 to 70, and are prone to millerandage, adding an extra dimension of sweet richness to the fruit. As usual, half of the wine is fermented in whole bunches, giving lifted, spicy, violet-scented red fruit, with vibrancy, power and length.
2017 MOREY-SAINT-DENIS Clos Solon (CAMI31217A)
Spicy sour cherry fruit and bright crunchy acidity are backed by melting rich tannins with a hint of chocolate; the finish is long and fine.
2017 CHAMBOLLE MUSIGNY 1er cru Aux Echanges (CAMI32217A)
A dense wine, with sweet, seductive red cherry fruit supported by silky tannins and a finely structured minerality; the finish is intense and bright.
2017 GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er cru, Lavaut-Saint-Jacques (CAMI36217A)
100% whole clusters give perfumed bright black cherry fruit. The wine has an airy, ethereal feel, enhanced by the very fine tannic structure and a refreshing saline finish.
2017 VOSNE-ROMANEE 1er cru, Les Suchots (CAMI38217A)
Delicate ripe strawberry fruit builds in richness as the wine opens across the palate, joined by spicy peppery notes and velvety tannins. A very seductive and powerful wine indeed.
2017 CORTON LES RENARDES (CAMI41217A)
A welcome return after some years of absence from the portfolio. Made from organically farmed fruit, and 100% whole bunches, it is a nuanced linear wine with a firm mineral backbone and pure tannins, offset by generous enticing red fruit and a very long juicy finish.
2017 CLOS VOUGEOT (CAMI48217A)
From two parcels: Petit Maupertuis, with thin, limestone-rich soils, and Hautes Baudes, lower down the slope, which has more clay and gravel. It is fine, fruity and ripe with violet-tinted red fruit, density, smooth tannins and a fresh peppery finish.
2017 CHARMES-CHAMBERTIN (CAMI52217A)
Rounded and rich, with seductive relaxed black fruit tinged with liquorice and spice, fine ripe tannins and lots of energy and freshness. Does what it says on the tin.
2017 SAINT ROMAIN Sous le Château (CAMI72217A)
Elegant and bright, with some weight and bright lemony acidity to accompany the mineral hit on the finish.
2017 MEURSAULT, Les Vireuils (CAMI74217A)
A very pure mineral-laden wine, full of energy, power and citrus fruit, finishing on a creamy saline note.
2017 CORTON-CHARLEMAGNE (CAMI90217A)
From Le Rognet. An elegant, linear wine that builds and builds on the palate, displaying juicy citrus fruit, fine creamy stony flavours and a hint of oak. Very fresh and lovely.
