Yann Charlopin

For the rest of these alphabetically grouped tasting articles, and more general articles on Burgundy 2018, see our guide. Pictured here is Yann Charlopin, who with his wife Justine Tissier bought Domaine David Clark in Morey, expanded and renamed Domaine Charlopin-Tissier.

The wines are grouped alphabetically by producer (sur)name and within those groups are ordered whites before reds, ascending from generic through village, premiers and grands crus. You can change the order as you prefer using the menu below.

Domaine Jacques Cacheux et Fils (Vosne-Romanée)

Dom Jacques Cacheux et Fils, Aux Réas 2018 Vosne-Romanée

Cask sample. Slight menthol and medicinal notes, looking very big and heavy at the moment. I don’t think this sample has travelled well, seems a bit shocked from transit. (AC)

£473 per case of 12 ib Montrachet Fine Wine Merchants

Dom Jacques Cacheux et Fils, Grand Cru 2018 Échezeaux

Cask sample. Big, weighty style on the nose. Huge concentration and fruit on the palate, very very big style, and no subtlety here. Just huge fruit and too much alcohol at the moment. I think perhaps this is not a great sample. (AC)

£1,263 per case of 12 ib Montrachet Fine Wine Merchants

Domaine Jacques Carillon (Puligny-Montrachet)

Dom Jacques Carillon 2018 Puligny-Montrachet

Cask sample. Beguiling nose which has both a herbal note and powerful ripe apple fruit. Textured and packed full of acidity, vibrant and lively and a long finish. (AC)

£483 per case of 12 ib Montrachet Fine Wine Merchants

Domaine Denis Carré (Meloisey)

Dom Denis Carré, La Perrière 2018 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune

Bottled. Excellent example of the value to be found in the Hautes-Côtes. OK this bottling is not the densest but it’s very pure and every bit as good as, if not better than, many a village wine. Crisp and crunchy. ‘Pure’ does it. GV

£138 per case of 12 ib Berry Bros & Rudd

Domaine Castagnier (Morey-St-Denis)

No whole...
