2020 Domaine Fernand Lecheneaut, Bourgogne, Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge 6x75cl

Offered by Mr.Wheeler for only the third vintage and one of the most exciting recent additions to our portfolio, Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut’s ten-hectare estate in Nuits-St-Georges was... created by their father, Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s. An extensive range of the finest villages of the Côte de Nuits is produced here; we have picked what we think are the best in 2020 - perfect expressions of pinot noir – rich, sumptuous and elegant, these are modern wines made with minimum intervention that combine purity of fruit with stunning terroir expression. Hautes-Côtes de Nuits have been particularly delicious in the past few, warm, vintages. This example from Léchéneaut is gorgeously moreish and juicy, with excellent ripeness and that spine of acidity that can be expected from vineyards higher up in altitude. Dark cherry fruit and fine-grained tannins combine beautifully here.

2019 Jean-Jacques Girard, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Fourneaux 6x75cl

"Cask sample. Mid crimson. Aroma of sweet oak spice, invitingly fruity – red fruits. Creamy, velvet-like texture, juicy and fresh, lively too. Just a very slight bitterness on the finish, as with the straight Savigny, but that does increase the freshness." 16pts., Julia Harding MW,

2017 Chateau Cissac, Haut-Medoc 12x75cl

"66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot on gravel. A cru bourgeois. Unnecessarily heavy bottle. Colour of black cherries with purple rim. Rich black fruit on the nose, a touch of cassis... leaf adding lift, surprisingly open. Sweet-fruited and with some oak sweetness on the palate too but with the savoury quality of the Médoc to balance the fruit. Finely textured and supple tannins and a lovely freshness from start to finish." 16 pts., Julia Harding MW,

2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Bourgogne, Pinot Noir 12x75cl

Produced from a single parcel of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin, this lovely, uncomplicated pinot fully expresses the warmth of the 2020 vintage. Delightfully forward cherry and damson fruit combine to... give a rich and ripe mouthfeel with soft yet ever-present tannins. However keen you'll be to open a bottle upon arrival, it will continue to provide great drinking pleasure well into the coming decade.

2021 Domaine Lecheneaut, Morey-Saint-Denis 6x75cl

"Once again Philip and Vincent have excelled themselves with their village Morey-St Denis. The grapes are gathered from a number of plots looking down on the village, and they have been built into a... really impressive wine. The nose is very ripe with intense concentrated cherry fruit, leading to a heady combination of assertive Morello fruit and bold ripe tannins. This was really lovely even at this stage and will undoubtedly shine brighter on its arrival. A real star from the Domaine this year." (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

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

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.

Long and linear on the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon marking the blend (first time this much in Petit Cheval). Crunchy fruit with a firm grain of tannin. Structure for a bit of age." 16 pts.
