DOMAINE LOUIS MICHEL

Dom Louis Michel, Vaudésir 2015 Chablis Grand Cru

Tank sample. Ripe, sweet apricot fruit and a glossy, viscous palate. Good length, but it isn't quite dense or complex enough for a very long life, methinks. (RH)

DOMAINE ALAIN MICHELOT 
Very chunky, traditional style.

Dom Alain Michelot, Premier Cru 2015 Nuits-St-Georges

Dark crimson. Pretty reduced nose. Edgy, marked acidity. Rather sludgy texture – could do with fresher fruit. Slight lack of precision. Raw finish.

DOMAINE FRANÇOIS MIKULSKI

Dom François Mikulski 2015 Meursault

Extrovert and luscious nose with equal amounts of oak spice and rich stone fruit flavours. Shots of lime juice on the finish. Grippy phenolic feel – has the weight and breadth of good Meursault. (RH)

Dom François Mikulski, Porusot Premier Cru 2015 Meursault

Impressive mineral character – flinty and saline and smoky, with a pithy green apple fruit with loads of freshness and density. Very good – justifies its premium. (RH)

Dom François Mikulski, Charmes Premier Cru 2015 Meursault

Very bright apple fruit, smashing acidic frame and a great deal of punch on the mid palate. Lots of green citrus – if anything, this is less fleshy and mouth-filling than the typical Meursault – but delicious all the same, and very lengthy. (RH)

Dom François Mikulski 2015 Pommard

Quite sweet fruit on the nose, finely grained texture on the palate and a polished, smooth mouthfeel to finish. Powerful fruit which balances well with the body, acid and tannin. Very tasty, and lots of concentration for ageing. (RH)

DOMAINE JEAN-MARC MILLOT 

Dom Jean-Marc Millot 2015 Côte de Nuits-Villages

Updated 22 Feb 2017: the sample tasted during the primeurs in Jan 2017 tasted to me as if it had problems with brett. Dom Millot contacted me after our notes were published to tell me they had had the wine analysed and it was not affected by brett, and they kindly sent me a fresh sample. I can only assume that the sample had deteriorated on its way to London because this fresh sample could not have been more different from the sample I tasted in January. The following is my new note. I have also changed my score and suggested drink dates.
Mid to deep cherry red. This is totally clean, with plenty of dark-red fruit though the overall effect is made more savoury by a light note of spice and no noticeable oak sweetness. On the palate, dry, slightly chewy tannins but in balance with the fruit. (JH)

Dom Jean-Marc Millot 2015 Savigny-lès-Beaune

There’s a certain farmyard air to the nose, and the palate has an overripe fruit character. Easy-drinking, but not the most sophisticated of 2015s. (RH)

Dom Jean-Marc Millot, Aux Faulques 2015 Côte de Nuits-Villages

Cask sample. Mid to deep crimson. Rich-fruited and spicy on the nose. Plenty of dark, ripe fruit, generous and rounded already. Dark and savoury on the finish. Compact but softening tannins. (JH)

Dom Jean-Marc Millot, Grand Cru 2015 Échezeaux

Cask sample. Mid to deep crimson. Pretty oaky on the nose at the moment and a little meaty. Really very meaty on the palate (brett?). Savoury and persistent but not sure about that meaty character – I hope it is the condition of the sample and not the nature of the wine. (JH)

Dom Jean-Marc Millot, Grand Cru 2015 Échezeaux

Delicious perfume on the nose, but the palate has a pretty wild volatility about it, giving a strong glue scent on the finish. Not for me. (RH)

Dom Jean-Marc Millot, Grand Cru 2015 Clos de Vougeot

Much more savoury and controlled than their Échezeaux, with a lovely clove and anise spice on the palate. Very long, very aromatic aftertaste with some vegetal stemmy hints as well as the spice and just-ripe black cherry. (RH)

DOMAINE ANDRÉ MOINGEON

Dom André Moingeon 2015 Puligny-Montrachet

Light palate, attractive minty flavour and a little lime citrus fruit. Fairly generous body with a nice leesy weight. Finely balanced, but a little conservative in flavour range. (RH)

DOMAINES DES MOIROTS 

Dom des Moirots 2015 Givry

Quite sharp and pointy. Edgy tannins but the fruit is certainly ripe enough. Edgy and grainy but not that welcoming.

DOMAINE MONGEARD-MUGNERET

Dom Mongeard-Mugneret, Les Plateaux 2015 Nuits-St-Georges

DOMAINE DE MONTILLE, MAISON DEUX MONTILLE and CHÂTEAU DE PULIGNY-MONTRACHET
