    B255 2014 Bourgogne-Aligoté, Jean-Luc Joillot +

    100% aligoté. Jean-Luc Joillot’s aligoté has a pale-golden straw colour and subtle floral aromas; the grape’s acidity makes for a lemony character, balanced by a Burgundian richness.

    100% chardonnay. Nathalie Oudin has recently taken over from her parents Jean-Claude and Christiane, who own eight hectares of vines near the tiny village of Chichée (just south of Chablis). Nathalie allows her wines good exposure to air during malolactic fermentation — les Serres has very precise citrus fruit, good texture and a saline quality suggestive of the limestone bedrock.

    B114B 2013 Hautes Côtes de Beaune blanc, Jean-Luc Joillot +

    100% chardonnay. From a 14-hectare family estate in and around Pommard, farmed with the minimal intervention philosophy of lutte raisonnée.

    On the 2011 vintage: “…an ultra fresh and crisp chardonnay, just a trace of faint honey and nuttiness betraying some oak, but with a direct and piercing freshness of fruit. On the palate it is firm and juicy, the oak adding a touch of warming toast, but the firm fruit quality, tight texture and acidity all pushing through smartly. The finish is long and balanced between hints of sweet and ripe apple and the structured, grippy acids in a serious and gastronomic wine.”

    B97B 2013 Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Clos Reissier’, René Perraton +

    100% chardonnay. Charles Perraton, creator of the domaine, was a pioneer of the Appellation Contrôlée system and a co-founder of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation; his great-grandsons Christophe and Franck now produce no less than seven different appellations from a twelve-hectare holding. Clos Reissier is attractively round and ripe, which may result from sixty year-old vines or twelve months ageing on lees, but retains an appealing citrus freshness.

    B263 2014 Chorey-lès-Beaune, Maillard +

    100% chardonnay. Named after a nearby spring, le Trézin is situated at the top of the slope between Saint-Aubin and Meursault — neatly sandwiched between premiers crus Sous le Puits and la Garenne.

    100% pinot noir. On the third Sunday of every November an auction is held in Beaune to sell wines from holdings donated over the centuries to the former almshouse les Hospices de Beaune, with many only available in single barrel quantities; in his 1936 will Arthur Girard bequeathed several parcels in Savigny, but this wine originates from premier cru vineyards les Peuillots and le bas Marconnets. Softly floral, with silky tannin and a sweet mid-palate.

    100% pinot noir. With a hundred parcels amounting to ‘just’ twelve hectares of vineyard, the Felettig family must spend almost as much time driving back and forth as working in the rows… Their organically-farmed old vines seem to flourish, however — with an attractive degree of maturity, the Chambolle-Musigny combines dusty fruit and a mineral finesse. 13% ABV

    100% pinot noir. Philippe Gavignet produces thirteen different wines from just twelve hectares in and around Nuits Saint-Georges. His vieilles vignes bottling originates from just over an acre split between les Belles Croix and les Allots, both immediately below the belt of premier cru vineyards spanning the village. The old vines, planted in 1926 and 1954, make for a ripe and full-bodied wine that is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

An intense ruby colour is typical of Chassagne, while aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant marry perfectly with undergrowth notes; the palate is ample but refined, with spicy blackcurrant fruit.
