    RED WINE      
    DOMAINE COQUARD
LOISON- FLEUROT
This domaine was a serendipitous discovery in 2016 by Neal Martin of Vinous.com.
Here are some of his comments:
Winemaker Thomas Colladot allows the vineyards to articulate their own personalities so that each one offers its own take on the vintage. Clever winemaking matched with excellent terroirs.
     
24 75cl Bourgogne Rouge
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Vinous.com/Neal Martin  - The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge has a perfumed bouquet of black currant and raspberry aromas, all very pure and well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of black fruit and a precise finish. This is very fine for a generic red Burgundy.

2018 £24.00

24 75cl Chablis

AM -
Notes of petrol, quinine, pear and apple precede the succulent, round and delicious middle weight flavours that exude a subtle minerality onto the clean, dry, refreshing and saline-inflected finish. This nicely complex and balanced effort should be enjoyable young.
2017 £17.00 AM88
2020-27
14 75cl Rully Blanc

AM -
There is a touch of matchstick character to the citrusy apple and floral-scented nose. The nicely voluminous, seductive and succulent middle weight flavours possess slightly better depth and persistence on the bitter lemon-inflected finish. This too should be approachable shortly after release.

    MAISON VERGET
Top Maconais negociant.
RP/William Kelley -
Jean-Marie Guffens's Verget label, today superintended by the able Julien Desplans, continues to be a reference point for the Mâconnais. The best cuvées very much belong among the Mâconnais's élite, but this portfolio is also rich with terrific values to purchase by the case that would make ideal daily drinkers or by-the-glass pours.
Classy but keenly priced white Burgundy isn't easy to come by these days, so we should all be thankful for the Maison Verget. These wines come warmly recommended
    NOTE: This section lists all of the Verget wines, irrespective of their price.
29 75cl Macon -Bussières
'Vignes de Montbrison'

Verget

RP/William Kelley -
Offering up aromas of peach, pear, golden orchard fruit and freshly baked bread, the 2019 Mâcon-Bussières Vignes de Montbrison is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with an elegantly textural attack, lively acids and a nicely defined finish. This has turned out very well.
2019 £17.00 RP/WK90
2020-30
22 75cl Macon -Pierreclos
'Lieu Secret'

Verget

RP/William Kelley -
As usual, the 2019 Mâcon-Pierreclos Lieu Sécret originates in the only part of lieu-dit Le Chavigne that Guffens doesn't own himself, but his neighbour refuses to sell the vineyard, consenting only to sell the grapes. Offering up aromas of pear and crisp orchard fruit, framed by a touch of toasty oak, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and muscular, with a concentrated core of ripe fruit, succulent acids and a nicely defined finish.
2019 £20.00 RP/WK92
2020-30
33 75cl Saint-Veran
'Vigne de Saint-Claude'

Verget

RP/William Kelley -
Aromas of pear, peach, wheat toast and pastry cream introduce the 2019 Saint-Véran Vigne de Saint-Claude, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy wine with a nicely concentrated core of sun-kissed fruit, lively acids and a nicely defined finish.

75cl Pouilly-Fuissé
'La Roche'

Verget

RP/William Kelley -
The 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé La Roche is the most youthfully reserved wine in the range, unwinding in the glass with scents of pear, peach, buttered toast and mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's concentrated and precise, with lively acids and a penetrating finish. If Verget's Les Combes is more muscular, La Roche is more elegant and refined this year: it isn't easy to chose between them.
2019 £28.00 RP/WK94
