2020 Laurent Cognard, Montagny Premier Cru, Le Vieux Chateau 6x75cl

This monopole Clos vineyard, right at the top of the hill, yields fruit of rare intensity and power, with excellent balancing acidity; deservedly given a little more new oak than the rest of the... range it delivers a sublime mix of creamy citrus curd and chalky notes on the long and clean, fresh finish. Breathtaking power and elegance in this cuvee from a producer redefining expectations for a whole appellation… What a wine!

2020 Domaine Morey Coffinet, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru, La Romanee 6x75cl

We discovered the wines of this Chassagne-Montrachet rising star (established in its current form "only" 30 years ago, although the family cellars date from the 16th century) for the first time in... 2020, and although we were immediately impressed by the portfolio of great vineyards the Morey family cultivate, it was upon tasting the wines with Thibault Morey that we fell in love with them. The estate is run according to biodynamic principles throughout. Thibault is one of the new generation of winemakers who, through precise, rigorous work and an open mind not only to traditional and modern techniques but also to different expressions of the Burgundy terroirs, produce truly exciting wines. These are wines that combine richness and power with complexity and elegance effortlessly, and they come highly recommended. Ripe and intense, this immediately shows the fabulous opulence La Romanée is famous for. On the palate emerges impressive structure; add length and a level of complexity to rival many a Grand Cru, and you have a 1er Cru that bridges the gap with Chassagne’s most revered vineyards.

2020 Samuel Billaud, Chablis Grand Cru, Bougros 6x75cl

The Billaud family have been producing great Chablis since 1815. 6th generation Samuel set out on his own in 2010 and it is fair to say that after a decade, his dynamic approach and great winemaking... touch have taken his domaine from a status of Rising Star to one of the very best, established growers in the region. Samuel makes precise, elegant and terroir-true expressions of every vineyard in his care. His wines are electric and simply crackle with the tension and vibrancy which can be found in the region's best wines. Offering scintillating wines from the refreshing, steely fresh Petit-Chablis through to bold and dynamic Grand Crus, Samuel Billaud is a master of his craft, and as Neal Martin points out, "We should see him right at the top of Chablis producers alongside the likes of Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat". These are singular Chablis and the sheer embodiment of purity and poise. One of the most opulent Grands Crus in Chablis owing to its deep layer of top soil, Bougros in the hands of such a winemaker as Samuel, whose tireless search for precision, elegance and textural quality yields a wine of rare balance and depth. The very top vineyards in Chablis continue to deliver a stunning value alternative to those of the Côte d'Or. Long may that continue.
