See this guide to our extensive coverage of Burgundy 2015. Our picture shows what you see between the slats of Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's smart new premises south-east of Chassagne.
Now that the wines have been sorted into groups by producer, you can sort the wines within those groups by score or appellation.
DOMAINE BRUNO CLAIR
Dom Bruno Clair 2015 Marsannay
Tangy with citrus and cedar on the nose. A bit lean and flat on the palate. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Source des Roches 2015 Marsannay
Like the straight Marsannay, zesty on the nose. And here much richer on the palate, with rounded citrus fruit and much better balance of fruit and freshness. Almost but not quite tart on the finish. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, En la Rue de Vergy 2015 Morey-St-Denis
Oaky/mealy nose. Sulphur showing a little for the moment. Tight, dry, a little short on fruit in the middle but that could be the sulphur getting in the way, hence the plus. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Les Longeroies 2015 Marsannay
Mid crimson. Vanilla-laced red fruit. Dry, grippy and a bit austere on the palate, finishing rather dry. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, La Dominode Premier Cru 2015 Savigny-lès-Beaune
Light to mid crimson. Sweet cherry aroma. Light and juicy. Lightly structured to match. A bit lean on the finish. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Les Champs Perdrix 2015 Vosne-Romanée
Light to mid cherry. Fragrant and red-fruited on the nose. Juicy, fresh, supple texture. Light and easy but all in balance. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Petite-Chapelle Premier Cru 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin
Lifted, peppery and inviting, very expressive already. Just a slight stemmy whole-bunch herbal note. Delicately dry and fresh on the palate. Juicy and lingering. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Les Cazetiers Premier Cru 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin
This seems leaner than the Petite-Chapelle. Still fragrant and juicy but less fruit in the middle so it finishes rather dry. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Clos St-Jacques Premier Cru 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin
Lightish cherry. Sweetly fragrant – on the nose and palate. But a little lean on the palate, needs a touch more flesh to balance it out, maybe it will come. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Grand Cru 2015 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze
Mid crimson. Gentle, dry and harmonious. Doesn’t really strike me as grand cru material, except in a lighter vein. Unexpectedly persistent. (JH)
Dom Bruno Clair, Grand Cru 2015 Bonnes Mares
More smoky and savoury on the nose than the Clos de Bèze. A little herbal and stemmy. Firm and chewy but with the fruit to carry the firm structure. Needs a lot of time. So expensive. (JH)
DOMAINE FRANÇOISE ET DENIS CLAIR
Good honest expressions of Santenay of both colours.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair 2015 Santenay
Savoury nose with lean citrus and masses of chew. Not the most sophisticated white burgundy. A bit big and unsubtle. Quite chewy and alcoholic on the end.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair 2015 St-Aubin
Calcareous site. Pale straw colour. Tense and exciting on the nose. Much more interesting than this producer’s village Santenay 2015. Sleek and racy with crunchy fruit. Much better value! Straightforward and already open.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Les Champlots Premier Cru 2015 St-Aubin
Calcareous site above the hamlet of Gamay.
Quite a rich nose. And then tension on the palate. Well done! Very lively and pure. Lots to chew on but not in an unpleasant way. QGV
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Les Frionnes Premier Cru 2015 St-Aubin
Just a little dull and sweet compared with the Agnès Paquet just tasted. Ticks boxes but lacks a bit of freshness.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, En Remilly Premier Cru 2015 St-Aubin
Solid if a bit earthbound. Lots of chew and potential.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Les Murgers des Dents de Chien Premier Cru 2015 St-Aubin
Solid and very fresh with lots of structure and potential. Really chewy on the end but it has life!
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair 2015 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune
Cask sample. Really quite substantial on the nose with some hint of hazelnuts. Crunchy texture. Masses of acidity. Confident wine. Lots going on underneath.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Clos Genet 2015 Santenay
Cask sample. Not much nose. A bit stolid. All in reserve. The ingredients are here but they are distinctly unknit.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Sur Le Sentier du Clou Premier Cru 2015 St-Aubin
From 45-year-old vines.
Bright cherry red. Intense, ripe nose is totally charming even if the finish is a tad mean. Exuberant!
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Clos des Mouches Premier Cru 2015 Santenay
Cask sample. Opulent yet fresh. Masses of joyful fruit with some real sweetness. Good grainy texture and refreshment. Not a heavyweight but good balance.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Clos de la Comme Premier Cru 2015 Santenay
Cask sample. A dusty overlay on some really ripe fruit. Lots of structure and crunch. This should be worth waiting for. Really quite piercing with some (quite attractive) inky quality. Long.
Dom Françoise et Denis Clair, Clos de Tavannes Premier Cru 2015 Santenay
Cask sample. Big and broad on the nose. Lots going on here. But for the moment it’s distinctly reserved. This producer presents a good Santenay terroir lesson.
DOMAINE BRUNO CLAVELIER
Dom Bruno Clavelier, La Combe Brûlée 2015 Vosne-Romanée
Sweet and intense on the nose. But not that focused on the palate. A bit edgy vegy on the slightly messy finish. Aggressively chewy.
Dom Bruno Clavelier, Les Corbeaux Premier Cru 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin
A bit hesitant and tough. Underpowered. I’m afraid I really wouldn’t pay this price for this timid wine. Very hard work.
Dom Bruno Clavelier, Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes Premier Cru 2015 Vosne-Romanée
Scented and quite intense. Hard edged with a lot of veginess. Not charming.
DOMAINE CHRISTIAN CLERGET
Dom Christian Clerget, Les Crais 2015 Morey-St-Denis
Nuts and apples – plus a certain mushroom character that might be slightly rot-affected. Light palate, simple flavour profile. Not entirely convincing. (RH)
Dom Christian Clerget 2015 Chambolle-Musigny
Deep colour, very rich nose with a plum and herb character. This reminds me, weirdly enough, of freshly fermented Shiraz from McLaren Vale! It really is a warm style. There’s a lot of rich charm here – but I’m not sure you would pick it as Chambolle. (RH)
Dom Christian Clerget, Les Violettes 2015 Vosne-Romanée
Black cherry, violet, crunchy and expressive with a proper floral scent on the finish. Very tender tannins indeed – very much an early-drinker, though there is gorgeous fruit intensity through to the finish. (RH)
Dom Christian Clerget, Les Charmes Premier Cru 2015 Chambolle-Musigny
Sweet oak scent on the nose, rich cherry fruit, soft mouthfeel that nonetheless leaves a fine tannic grip on the finish. Much more refined than their non-premier cru Chambolle. It’s a masculine style that should develop reasonably well. (RH)
Dom Christian Clerget, Les Petits Vougeots Premier Cru 2015 Vougeot
Rich plummy fruit – ripe and rich, showing the ripeness of the vintage. Expertly balanced palate with the acid just refreshing the full body and grainy tannin structure. Delicious sour cherry element on the finish. (RH)
Dom Christian Clerget, Grand Cru 2015 Échezeaux
Candied cherry fruit. Strong medicinal character, and some volatile acidity makes this quite edgy on the nose – not unpleasant, but without the purity of fruit you might expect. It’s not too expensive relative to many grands crus, mind (based on the trade price). (RH)
DOMAINE Y CLERGET
A new signing for Haynes, Hanson & Clark that shows promise in reasonably chunky but pure style.
Dom Y Clerget 2015 Volnay
Cask sample. Notably dark crimson. Really very intense and dramatic on the nose. Then exciting tension on the palate. Certainly makes a statement! Almost more Pommard intensity than Volnay elegance but lots of delivery.
Dom Y Clerget, Santenots Premier Cru 2015 Volnay
Cask sample. Bright crimson. Very charming nose with ripe fruit and perfume in the ascendant. Lots of both acid and tannin – enthusiastic extraction! Strong statement once more. Dry finish.
Dom Y Clerget, Clos du Verseuil Premier Cru 2015 Volnay
Cask sample. Monopole.
Lots of definition on the nose with some veginess. Very firm tannins – almost bitter on the end. Hardly a gentle touch! Needs lots of time. For those who value structure over fruit.
Dom Y Clerget, Champans Premier Cru 2015 Volnay
Cask sample.Very seductive yeast-extract nose. Bright fruit with fine acidity and sufficient fruit for the tannin. Excitingly ambitious with nuance and potential. The fruit almost hides the tannin.
Dom Y Clerget, Les Caillerets Premier Cru 2015 Volnay
Cask sample. Real vigour and upright tannins but lots of subtle ripe fruit too. Real spread of red fruits on the front palate with extremely appetising freshness on the finish. Fine polish and zest. Clean, appetising, just the right side of severe on the finish.
