This is an excellent family-run producer/negociant, making quality wines. The Vosne Romanee listed below is especially good!
20 75cl Vosne Romanee
'Les Malconsorts'
1er Cru
Clos Frantin
Albert Bichot Martin - The 2015 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts 1er Cru seems to have been born to embarrass my rather tepid reaction to this wine from barrel. Wow! This has me smitten. It offers a very floral, seductive bouquet with pressed violet petals liberally scattered over the black cherry and wild strawberry fruit, and just a hint of vanilla in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. This is very cohesive, harmonious and silky-smooth in texture, with a light touch of blood orange and brown spices that impart complexity on the finish. Excellent.

2015 £118.00

9 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson Hemming MW - Excellent floral fragrance – open, spicy, expressive. Pure red fruits too – redcurrant, cranberry. Smooth and rounded in texture, yet with enough tannin to support long ageing. Superb length.

2016 £54.00



11 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson Harding MW
- Darker, riper and spicier than the Nuits-St-Georges. Tannins are extremely fine, dry and light but there's harmony overall in a lighter mode.
2012 £28.00 JH16/20
This is a really Top Domaine, the wines of Arnaud Mortet are in great demand, so pricy but well worth it.
2 75cl Clos de Vougeot
Grand Cru
Denis Mortet

AM - While not invisible, the wood influence is moderate and should integrate with a few years of bottle age as it frames the floral-inflected red currant aromas that display undertones of earth and a slight sauvage character. There is a caressing yet powerful mouthfeel to the naturally sweet, full-bodied and nicely precise flavours that offer excellent intensity on the driving and youthfully austere though slightly warm finish. Patience is definitely recommended.

2015 £345.00




This domaine was a serendipitous discovery in 2016 by Neal Martin of
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.
    Bearing in mind the cost explosion of quality Burgundy in the last 3-4 years, these wines offer 'relative value' compared to the better known domaine's.
10 75cl Bourgogne Rouge
Coquard Loison-Fleurot - Cask sample. Light purplish crimson. Pure, intense nose. Very fine, polished fruit with good tannin management. Juicy stuff! Firm structure is well hidden underneath spicy fruit. Grainy finish.

2015 £25.00




27 75cl Chambolle Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Currently not reviewed - TOP vintage, so well worth a try!

2015 £54.00



18 75cl Chambolle Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village, matured in 30% new oak, has a generous bouquet of red berry fruit, plus touches of brown spice and light loamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and lightly spiced red berry fruit mixed with white pepper and sage, dovetailing into a slightly compact but fresh finish. Fine.

2018 £52.00



24 75cl Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, January 2020 - From three lieux-dits including Clos Solon in the middle and north of the village. Another very ebullient 2018 from Coquard-Loison-Fleurot.
Red fruit, especially raspberry, with saline notes, a little tighter in structure than the Chambolle, this shows excellent promise.

2018 £55.00
12 75cl Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin - The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Village comes from four climats scattered across the appellation and sees one-third new oak. Compared to the Chambolle Village, there is more fullness of fruit on the nose, which offers red cherries, crushed strawberry and rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity, a little piquancy toward the finish and a bit of orange zest on the aftertaste. Excellent.

2017 £52.00
18 75cl Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Currently not reviewed - TOP vintage, so well worth a try!

2015 £57.00 2020-30
24 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin - The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet of dark cherries, raspberry and light tobacco aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is very smooth and harmonious, with lightly spiced red fruit. Gains weight and grip toward the very finely detailed finish, which nudges Premier Cru in quality. Yeah... that good.

2018 £52.00
18 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Coquard Loison-Fleurot - Intense aroma of chestnuts and some well-managed tannins. Both this and the village Vosne are textbook examples of these appellations. Lots of juice but admirable structure underneath.

2015 £54.00
12 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was showing a touch of reduction on the nose, but underneath are fine blackberry and raspberry aromas and touches of potpourri and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained, supple tannins, superb acidity and a harmonious, silky finish. Excellent.

2018 £158.00
6 75cl Clos Vougeot
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, which took the longest to finish its alcoholic fermentation, has a ripe, opulent bouquet of black cherries, blueberry and cassis aromas, perhaps not displaying the delineation of the previous two vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, fine acidity and good energy. The grippy, slightly oaky finish will need time to knit together. Give it three or four years in bottle.

2018 £150.00


11 75cl Clos St Denis
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin - The 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru comes from vines planted in 1936, and was raised in three barrels this year (two of them new.) It has a clean, precise tightly wound bouquet of blackberry, raspberry preserve, pressed iris and subtle undergrowth, almost peaty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, quite masculine compared to the Clos de la Roche, and shows firmer grip and persistence on the chalky finish. Very fine and quite cerebral.

2017 £240.00
12 75cl Clos de La Roche
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet of dark berry fruit, crushed stone and touches of truffle and iodine. It just bursts from the glass. The palate is very ripe and sweet on the entry, displaying a lot of sucrosity and a very vibrant finish laden with cola-tinged black fruit. It might just be a little too much for my palate, although I suspect it will be very seductive.

2018 £144.00
12 75cl Echezeaux
Grand Cru
Coquard Loison-Fleurot Martin  - The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a fragrant, perfumed bouquet with violet and iris petals infusing shimmering black cherry and wild strawberry fruit; touches of orange pith emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very harmonious, showing a velvety texture that is very sleek and tempting. A lovely Echezeaux.

2018 £155.00
29 75cl Vosne Romanee
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy - 5 star RATING!
From Quartiers de Nuits and Maizières, top locations, and 70 year old vines, then blended with a cuvée from 50 year old vines in Les Violettes.
The blend offers a super-saturated purple colour, the nose shows a real nobility, the quintessence of Vosne, with beautiful flesh on the palate, beautifully balanced, just the right acidity.

2018 £58.00
21 75cl Vosne Romanee
Coquard Loison-Fleurot - Particularly deep crimson. Savoury, relatively layered nose. Some oak just perceptible but the bitter-cherry fruit dominates it. Really quite fine and very energetic. Admirably long and well constructed. A success – and a steal relative to the Cathiard version!

2015 £69.00
A very good Domaine and Negociant business; offering quality wines at fair prices (especially considering current Burgundy price rises!)
12 37.5cl Gevrey Clos St Jacques
1er Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/Neal Martin -
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a composed bouquet with dark cherry, red plum, a light estuarine influence seeping through with aeration, all with good intensity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, tensile with a brisk and quite punchy finish. I thought it might be Bruno Clair's Clos Saint Jacques before its identity was revealed - a classy number from the Jadot team. Tasted September 2016.

HALF-BOTTLES - a great way to try a top wine, without having to pay the full price for standard bottle.

2013 £42.00 RP/NM93
4 75cl Clos de la Roche
Grand Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/Neal Martin -
The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savoury on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervosité or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine.
2014 £138.00 RP/NM93


A very good Micro-Negociant business, making excellent long lasting wines from only the best bought-in grapes.
These wines are best decanted before serving.
6 75cl Nuits Saint Georges
Les Vaucrains

1er Cru
Lucien Le Moine

AM -
As one would expect, this is bigger, richer and more powerful with broad-scaled and overtly muscular flavours that are extremely serious and sombre, all wrapped in a palate staining and imposingly structured finish that exhibits huge length. There isn't the refinement of the Les Cailles or Les St. Georges but for fans of power Burgundy, this delivers.
2009 £98.00 AM93
