DOMAINE STÉPHANE ALADAME
DOMAINE GUY AMIOT
DOMAINE DE L'ARLOT
DOMAINE CHARLES AUDOIN
Mid to deep cherry. Fragrant and red fruited, closer to the Marie Ragonneau on the nose. Rich, juicy and still refined. Fine, firm but velvety feel to the tannins. GV (JH)
DOMAINE DENIS BACHELET
Very easy, round, fresh fruit with direct appeal. Not very intense nor persistent but lots of charm.
Real complexity on the nose. Mossy and autumnal. But relatively light and fresh and fruity on the palate. Because the wine is quite light, the acidity seems quite marked. Racy and easy on the palate, although I expect it will take on weight.
Scented and intriguing. Definitely more substance than the village wine with a bit of tannin noticeable for the first time. Very fresh and damson-like fruit.
Muscular chestnut nose. Really quite rich for a 2011 and yet supple. Approaching richness, anyway, though low key. Very good for a 2011; a little muted overall. Trademark richness. Very clean and pure. He wanted to make wines for gourmandise and regrets that no English word exists.
DOMAINE JEAN-CLAUDE BACHELET
Very tight and ambitious. Tightly wound, great stuff! Quite long. VGV
DOMAINE DANIEL ET JULIEN BARRAUD
Smoky and satisfying. Greengage fruits. Tingly finish. GV
Rich and also smoky. Lots of energy here. Doesn't really taste like Mâcon (much more concentrated) though it has a honey character. Chewy mineral finish suggests a relatively long life.
Lively, lean with green notes. Dry finish. Just a little low key.
Lively and tense with strong green notes. Hazelnut notes. Some tension. Crunchy.
Fine and tight and restrained. This should be really rather glorious eventually. Exciting but definitely Pouilly-Fuissé rather than Côte d'Or. (Nothing wrong with that!)
Broad and rich! So much delivery for the money. Precisely sculpted even if from broader fruit than on the Côte d'Or. Very well done. Neat.
Lots of acidity and structure. Very ambitious. Undertow of throat lozenge…
DOMAINE GHISLAINE BARTHOD
DOMAINE ROGER BELLAND
