2020 Domaine Albert Bichot (Long-Depaquit), Chablis Grand Cru, Moutonne 6x75cl

JM93-96JR17.5+
*ON ALLOCATION - £570 per case of 6 bottles IB* Domaine Long-Depaquit can be traced back to 1791 when Jean Depaquit and his brother Simon moved to Chablis. They purchased vineyards and developed... their domaine into one of the most renowned producers of Chablis today. Now owned by Albert Bichot in Beaune, Domaine Long-Depaquit offers an impressive range of Premier and Grand Crus. A sustainable approach, limited yields and skilful winemaking creates incredibly invigorating and mineral-edged wines. ‘La Moutonne’, a monopole in the heart of the Grand Cru vineyards, between Vaudésir and Les Preuses is one of their most celebrated cuvées, known for its incredible precision, elegance and staying power. Whichever cuvée you choose, these are delicious, mineral rich Chardonnays of the highest order. Opening the proceedings at a Bichot tasting in London, the 2020 La Moutonne quite simply blew us away. Crushed oyster shell and citrus on the nose, followed on the palate by a superb energy with an exquisite texture. Laser-like, yet with excellent weight and power on the long finish, this is very, very special.

2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Les Millandes 6x75cl

JM91-94JR16
This wine comes from a great vineyard scattered with small stones and abutting the grand cru of Mazis-Chambertin. It creates a very elegant and dynamic wine with delicious layers of morello cherry and fresh herbs that are tempered by a delightful freshness and complexity. A wonderful example to be savoured over the next 10 to 15 years.

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru 6x75cl

*ON ALLOCATION - £1150 per case of 6 bottles IB* A new find for Mr.Wheeler in the 2019 vintage and one we are pleased to follow since then; Domaine Livera is widely considered the “next Burgundian... star” tellingly both by consumers of their exceptional wines together with their winemaking contemporaries. The Livera family have been settled on the Domaine for almost 100 years, but Damien, who has been in charge for 13 years now, has taken the wines to a different level altogether. His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. Such a complete wine the Domaine Livera Chapelle-Chambertin. Mind-blowingly powerful yet ever so precise, seamless harmony even at this early stage, and a finish that unfurls layer upon layer of flavour: notes of violets and raspberry, followed by cherry then more savoury hints of winter spice and an almost umami finish. Impossibly delicious.

2020 Domaine Joseph Voillot, Pommard Premier Cru, Les Epenots 6x75cl

VM91-93
Domaine Joseph Voillot holds 10 hectares of vineyards spanning the communes of Volnay and Pommard. Jean Pierre Charlot’s wines offer understatement and elegance, and in 2020 they have also... delivered fruit richness and an intensity rarely captured in Volnay and Pommard. These wines are impossible to ignore, showing modern classicism whilst perfectly expressing the wine’s unique terroirs. These are wines which speak so eloquently of their individual sites and are the essence of pinot noir. For buyers keen to experience the purity and poise of Volnay and Pommard in a great vintage, look no further than Domaine Joseph Voillot.

2020 Benjamin Leroux, Volnay Premier Cru, Les Mitans 6x75cl

JM88-91VM90-92
"The 2020 Volnay Les Mitans 1er Cru has a generous bouquet with red cherries, blackcurrant and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite spicy with white pepper and clove notes towards the finish. Very fine, but it needs time." 90-92 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com

2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, Champonnet 6x75cl

JM91-94JR16.5
"100% whole bunch vinification. Deep purple black. This is immensely more powerful on the nose. Spicy dark fruit, but please note not cooked at all and retaining a fresh vigour on the palate. Dark... raspberry, with correct tannins and good acidity, plus the hoped for persistence. Completely different in style to Goulots – probably just as good but my personal preference is for the additional finesse of Goulots. Concentrated wine for the longer term, very well made." 91-94 pts., Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Les Evocelles 6x75cl

Opened, approachable and again with a core of red fruit, suggesting a relatively early picking for preserving freshness and poise. Contiguous with the 1er Crus, it is widely thought that Evocelles... was not included in that classification only because most of the vineyard is in Brochon rather than Gevrey. Certainly the complexity and mineral finish point to a terroir of some class, and the relatively high altitude serves it well in this warm vintage. Well worth considering as a great-value option to the premiers crus. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2020 Claudie Jobard, Pommard Premier Cru, Les Charmots 12x75cl

The wines of Pommard are renowned for their structured and powerful cuvées and this example is no disappointment. A nose of fragrant cherry precedes an intense framed mouthful of deep berry fruit... and blackcurrants, with great balancing acidity and length. It is of course very young, yet is already showing signs that with time this will be absolutely delicious.

2020 Dominique Lafon, Beaune Premier Cru, Les Avaux 6x75cl

JM90-92
Les Avaux is rarely found on labels, with the vineyard being best known for providing the main volume for the Hospices de Beaune's Cuvée Maurice Drouhin. This example is firmly structured, ambitious and built for long-term ageing.

2020 Domaine Anne et Herve Sigaut, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Les Millandes 6x75cl

Siblings Anne and Hervé Sigaut manage a domaine established at the dawn of the 19th Century, yet they have embraced modern winemaking practices where it makes sense, balancing heritage and 21st... century know-how beautifully. The leitmotif here is one shared with many of the top addresses up and down the Côte d'Or - "great wine is made in the vineyard". The attention to detail and perfectionism are impressive, and yield perfect fruit, which is dealt with with the utmost delicacy and respect in the winery, by a team very mindful of what Chambolle-Musigny is all about - delicacy, elegance and silky texture. This is a new domaine to us this year, and we are very excited to bring these wines to you. Our favourite cuvée last year with the 2020 following suit: spicy, black fruit with a lovely mineral edge we found in most of the Sigaut cuvées. Much more tannic and structured than its Chambolle stable mates (as it should be) yet there is a poise and delicacy to the fruit and a silkiness to the texture that show the Chambolle influence. Long, savoury finish, with hints of tapenade. Truly excellent.

2020 Domaine Michel Magnien, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru, Les Sentiers 6x75cl

From vineyards located on a "sentier" (path) that leads to Clos de Vougeot, only the Route des Grands Crus separates it from that end of the exquisite Grand Cru “Bonnes-Mares”, on the edge of Chambolle and Morey. Outstanding quality of fruit.

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Vosne-Romanee, Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

Once again Aurélien demonstrates his superb understanding of terroirs, and handles the fruit in such a way as to produce a textbook Vosne, all velvet, raspberry coulis and white chocolate. There is excellent structure here, and it is built to age gracefully for the next decade easily.

2020 Dominique Lafon, Volnay 6x75cl

Already responsible for some of the very finest white wines in the world at his family Domaine in Meursault, and for some of the best value the world of wine has to offer in their Maconnais outfit;... Dominique Lafon has also been making his own wines for 11 years now, from vineyards he either owns or manages. The Dominique Lafon wines, produced at the Château de Bligny winery, are superb, showing the value of Dominique’s talent, experience and meticulous attention to detail. Simply, these are wines produced by one of the worlds greatest vinous talents. Bordering Meursault, the cool and late-ripening " Les Lurets" vineyard provides the excellent, perfumed and delicately structured fruit for this cuvée. Elegant and perfect with 5 years' ageing.

2020 Domaine Anne-Francoise Gros, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Guettes 6x75cl

The wedding of Vosne-Romanée's Anne-Françoise Gros to Pommard's François Parent led to the establishment in 1988 of this superb domaine, with excellent holdings across both the Côte de Beaune and... the Côte de Nuits. With the help of their children Caroline and Mathieu, they produce generous wines of power and depth, with gentle extraction and cool maceration giving the wines a beautifully seductive velvety texture. The bottlings' labels are all adorned with a different female head, inspired by Anne-Françoise and the artist's interpretation of the vineyard's style. Well-made reds from Savigny have performed outstandingly in this vintage, and as one would expect from a producer of this quality, the fact is fully demonstrated in this lovely wine. From the premier cru vineyard adjacent to the Bois de Chenôve there is a warm, sun-kissed bouquet of ripe red fruit here, followed by a juicy, supple, medium-full mouthful of loveliness. With plenty of structure here to take it the distance, there is no hurry, but this will be delightful in just a few years - and indeed long after.

2020 Aurelien Verdet, Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru, Monts Luisants 6x75cl

From his modest winery hidden off the beaten track in the little village of Arcenant in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Aurélien Verdet crafts wines of astonishing purity and precision. A highly... talented young winemaker whose following is growing steadily every year, Aurélien is no exception to the adage that “Great wine is created in the vineyard”. Indeed, he lavishes great care and attention on his 5.5 ha of vines, which he farms organically to produce fruit of superb quality. The winemaking is then all about respecting that fruit to bring the terroir through, which he does with great aplomb. A rising star to watch! Just above Clos de la Roche (with a significant chunk included in the Grand Cru vineyard), les Monts Luisants benefits from a very impressive terroir. And there is no doubt that "impressive" doesn't begin to faithfully describe this cuvée. It is, quite simply, pure dynamite - bursting with flavour, super rich, and it keeps on delivering layer upon layer of flavour - fruit, spice, savoury notes, umami on this finish. Mind-blowing.

His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. At the very centre of the Gevrey commune is Le Clos Village, a vineyard that enjoyed a particularly successful cuvée in 2020. In Philippe's hands, it is full of explosive energy with a depth of flavour to rival that of the better premiers crus, and a Gevrey easily meeting the expectations of a great village cuvée. And then some. Length is particularly impressive here, with real ambition and structure to see it safely through most of its second decade.

Lovely body and juicy, succulent black and red fruit with just a hint of spice; great salinity throughout a long finish, here's a cuvée having it all: approachable, thirst-quenching, yet serious and endowed with deep flavours for graceful ageing.

Produced from a single parcel of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin, this lovely, uncomplicated pinot fully expresses the warmth of the 2020 vintage.

A very fine villages cuvée.
