2016 Bourgogne Rouge (CAMI04216A)
Fruit from Volnay and a little from Givry give a rounded, ripe wine with density and generous fruit.
2018 Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune 'Au Crêtot' (CAMI06218A)
Crêtot is a north-facing vineyard with limestone soils that is slow to ripen, so one of the last to be harvested. It is a racy wine with pretty red fruit, well-defined tannins and a fine mineral backbone.
2018 Santenay (CAMI12218A)
From two plots ? Les Bras, with pebbly soil, and Les Saunières, made up of heavier red soils ? one below and one above the Clos Rousseau. The vintage suits it: the tannins are that bit riper and more elegant, the fruit is rich, floral and red, and there is a hint of licorice on the long complex finish.
2017 Santenay (CAMI12217A)
From two plots - Les Bras, with pebbly soil, and Les Saunières, 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.
2016 Santenay (CAMI12216A)
From two plots - Les Bras, with pebbly soil, and Les Saunières, made up of heavier red soils - one below and one above the Clos Rousseau. Fresh, spicy black cherry fruit and elements of raspberry are offset by finely structured tannins and a hint of mineral on the long finish.
2018 Ladoix Les Chaillots (CAMI14218A)
Les Chaillots touches the grand cru Corton Le Rognet, and is on a south-east facing slope with rich clay soils on a limestone base. It is pure, lively and red-fruited, with an exuberant juicy middle, a mineral edge and some extra texture from the fine-grained finish.
2016 Ladoix (CAMI14216A)
There is lovely fresh red cherry and black fruit here, depth, elegance and a sweet rich finish.
2018 Marsannay 'Les Longeroies' (CAMI16218A)
A blend of grapes, some grown on limestone-rich soils on the upper slopes, and others from old vines in clay soils lower down. This is unexpectedly fine, with a wealth of blackcurrant fruit and a gentle, smooth stony heat on the 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.
2016 Marsannay 'Les Longeroies' (CAMI16216A)
A blend of grapes, some grown on limestone-rich soils on the upper slopes, and others from old vines in clay soils lower down. There is lovely fresh red fruit with a shade of iron, density and a rich finish.
2015 Marsannay 'Les Longeroies' (CAMI16215A)
A blend of grapes, some grown on limestone-rich soils on the upper slopes, and others from old vines in clay soils lower down. 40% whole-bunch fermentation this year. It shows black, iron-tinged fruit, has lovely density and remains fresh throughout.
2018 Santenay 1er cru Clos Rousseau (CAMI20218A)
From the heart of the vineyard, the Clos des Roches Noires - a Clos within the Clos. Everything that is best about Santenay: very pure, lifted fresh red fruit and a stony mineral edge that gives structure and balance. It is finely woven and complex, and the finish is long and satisfying.
2016 Santenay 1er Cru Clos Rousseau (CAMI20216A)
There is lovely finely textured dense fruit here, exuberant and brambly, balanced by rounded fine tannins and a long spicy finish.
2018 Maranges 1er cru Le Croix Moines (CAMI22218A)
The last 1er cru of the Côte de Beaune, from a vineyard with 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, or, as one well known wine writer put it, ?bonesetting tannins?. There is crunchy, sweet red fruit, mild fresh tannins and hints of salty mineral, all pure and clearly delineated.
2013 Maranges 1er Cru Le Croix Moines (CAMI22213A)
Super-smooth and fine, this is a positive market garden of red berries, balanced by well integrated supple tannins and a sweet ripe finish. Very good indeed.
2012 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Valozières (CAMI26212A)
From a vineyard just below Corton-Bressandes. Everything an Aloxe should be: concentrated delicious vibrant fruit, a hint of spices, some gaminess, and importantly, smooth fine tannins. Gourmand.
2011 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Valozières (CAMI26211A)
A new wine, from a vineyard just below Corton-Bressandes. Dark, bramble fruit with distinct pepper, chocolate and gamy elements. Rounded and deep, driven to a long finish by a vibrant minerality.
2013 Beaune 1er Cru (CAMI29213A)
Beaune was hard hit by hail in 2013, particularly Cras, which managed a yield of only 3.5 hl/ha. It was thus blended with Avaux to make a very rich, concentrated wine with dark fruit, good tannin levels and superb length. It will last very well, and needs ten years in the cellar before approaching.
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.
2016 Vosne-Romanée 'Les Chalandins' (CAMI30216A)
Les Chalandins is neatly situated below Echézeaux , close to the wall of Clos Vougeot. 50% whole-bunch fermentation gives an intense, violet-scented, charming wine that is complex, transparent and round, with fine tannins and a long, powerful finish. One of the most seductive village wines tasted this year.
