2021 Claudie Jobard, Beaune Premier Cru, Les Epenotes 12x75cl

The continuation into Beaune of Les Epenots, one of two vineyards in Pommard considered for promotion to Grand Cru status. With the added mid-palate fat and ripeness in Beaune here is a cuvée that delivers superb structure and power, and will age gracefully for a couple of decades. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2021 Domaine Rossignol-Trapet, Beaune Premier Cru, Les Teurons 6x75cl

"Nicholas and David’s plot in “Les Teurons” is around 1.2-hectares and was planted in 1978 in a well-sited stony-rich site close to sheltering woods, The wine has a perfumed toasted cherry... nose, with an added peppery sappiness and delightful tension. There are bright red berries on the palate, which are underpinned with a crunchy and precise balance of oak and fresh acidity. It is so well put together and will unfold in a few years to give enormous pleasure." (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2022 Claudie Jobard, Beaune Premier Cru, Les Epenotes 6x75cl

(Almost) next to Pommard’s own Les Epenotes. Slightly more timid on the nose then followed by superb explosive energy in the mid-palate; red-fruit dominate the flavour profile with a velvety finish... and long, finish driven by deliciously ripe juicy acidity. The structure comes through almost as an afterthought, but is very much there, again very gently extracted by Claudie, yet enough to see this safely into a second decade of ageing.

2021 Jean-Jacques Girard, Beaune Premier Cru, Clos du Roi Rouge 6x75cl

"Girard’s Clos de Roi has been consistently impressive since it was first made in 2007, and this vintage is no exception. Situated at the northern end of a strip of premier cru vineyards to the... west of Beaune it has produced a wine of ripe and forward dark cherry fruit that is entwined with a gentle and judicious use of oak and fresh acidity. The tannins are silky and refined boding well for a graceful future. " (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

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

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.
