Echezeaux
Grand Cru
Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

AM -
A more expressive and notably spicier nose offers up notes of anise and clove together with the quite ripe red and black pinot fruit aromas that precede the rich yet finely detailed flavours that display a touch of minerality on the delicious, textured, balanced and strikingly long finish. Impressive.

Beaune Gréves
'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
There is a trace of reduction present but not enough to materially detract from the violet, plum and liqueur-like dark currant aromas that are trimmed in a discreet application of wood. There is a beguiling sense of underlying tension to the broad-shouldered, rich, intense and like the Clos de la Mousse, relatively powerful flavours that exude a fine minerality on the serious, balanced and saline-inflected finish. This should be excellent in time though note that patience will be required.

'Vigne de L'Enfant Jesus'
1er Cru
Domaine Bouchard

AM -
Noticeable though not overt wood influence sets off a very ripe nose composed of liqueur of plum, cassis and wild raspberry aromas. There is excellent richness to the round and relatively powerful medium weight flavours blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm, long and serious finish. This is also notably austere and extremely compact at present and as such it seems reasonably clear that it will not be a good candidate for early drinking.

4 75cl Savigny-Les-Beaune
'Les Dominode'
1er Cru
Chanson

AM - A very ripe but not jammy nose consists of plum, cassis and dark cherry liqueur along with soft spice and earth nuances. The very round, rich and sappy flavours still manage to exhibit good detail on the lightly mineral-inflected flavours that terminate in a mildly warm, very firm, serious and youthfully austere finale.

2015 £32.00

12 75cl Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru
Chanson

AM - Moderately generous wood frames the ripe aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, earth and plenty of floral elements. Like the Marconnets, there is a lovely sense of energy and freshness to the refined medium weight flavours that possess a lovely, even seductive texture that carries over to the firm, serious and mildly austere finish. Once again at least some patience required.

2016 £60.00

4 75cl Nuits St Georges
'Les Chaines Careteaux'
1er Cru
Chanson

NO Review for this wine at present, but this is what RP had to say for the NSG Village wine; so this wine will be a lot better!!

RP - The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges comes from 3.5 hectares of vine in the southern sector of under Les Pruliers and Les Vaucrains. There is a sense of purity, playfulness and joie-de-vivre on the nose that is very engaging, while the palate is rounded and generous with structured red and black, quite masculine fruit. This is a very decent village cru from Chanson.

2012 £35.00

2017-28

 

16 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson

AM -
I like the complexity of the menthol and floral suffused nose that also displays fresh and ripe red and dark currant aromas. There is good vibrancy and intensity to the mineral-inflected medium weight flavours that contrast a supple mid-palate against a firm and mildly austere finish and overall, this is very Gevrey in basic character.
2012 £32.00 AM89
2018-28
6 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Chanson

AM -
Here the agreeably fresh nose offers a notable step up in aromatic complexity with pretty aromas of red, blue and black pinot fruit along with the expected notes of earth and underbrush. There is plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract that imparts a succulent character to the lightly mineral-inflected flavours that display excellent persistence.
A quality villages.
2010 £35.00 AM90
2015-24
4 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson

AM -
An elegant array blends both upper and lower register aromas of airy red and dark berry fruit with distinct earth, humus and underbrush scents. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the suave and seductively textured middle weight plus flavours that are opulent and concentrated before terminating in a well-balanced and serious finish that displays outstanding depth and length. This firmly structured effort will need plenty of cellar time to arrive at its majority.
2012 £120.00 AM94
2020-35
1 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Chanson

AM -
A very floral nose also displays notes of earth, animale, red berries and a vegetal character that adds depth. The rich, fresh and solidly well-concentrated big-bodied flavours exude subtle spice notes on the complex and seriously long finish where the stems are in clear evidence.
This is really very good but the presence of the stems is obvious and thus this will not be for everyone.

12 75cl Gevrey Chambertin
Clos St Jacques
1er Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/Antonio Galloni -
The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques bursts from the glass with dark red fruit in an exciting, viscerally thrilling style that captures the personality of the vintage. The wine is beginning to shut down and will require patience, but it should be pretty spectacular when it emerges from its slumber. Layers of fruit build to the sensual inviting finish.

This is a Top

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.

11 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.

    DOMAINE MICHEL MAGNIEN
A vg domaine; where one can still find GC wines at fair prices.
   
 
6 75cl Charmes Chambertin
Grand Cru
Domaine Michel Magnien

AM -
Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Cazetiers but with a bit more elegance as this is a good deal less sombre. There is excellent volume to the equally muscular and powerful medium weight plus flavours that possess plenty of supporting dry extract that helps to buffer the moderately firm tannins on the balanced finish that delivers very fine depth and even better length.
2011 £124.00 AM94
2021-35
6 75cl Clos de la Roche
Grand Cru
Domaine Michel Magnien

AM -
An arresting nose of highly complex and intensely earthy nose features notes of smoke, game, spice and ripe red and dark pinot fruit aromas. There is excellent richness, size, weight and power to the large-scaled and well-muscled flavours that possess an interesting saline component on the refreshing yet altogether serious finish that delivers commanding length. A fine example of the appellation.
