Meursault blanc 2013
Lemon yellow, clear and bright, with light green reflections. An already very flattering nose on notes of toast, orange and jasmine. A rich and generous palate with great aromatic precision and a beautiful acidity on the finish… All the chracteristics of a great Meursault are gathered here!
Corton Charlemagne blanc 2012
Pale gold colour with bright reflections. At the opening the woody notes dominate. Aeration allows the aromas of candied fruit, mandarin and orange blossom to express themselves. Time will give elegance to this complex and intense bouquet. From the attack the power of Corton Charlemagne appears, with its characteristic grain and structure combined with minerality and elegance. Clearly one of the greatest wines in Burgundy… and what potential !
Corton “Les Maréchaudes” rouge 2012 / 1 étoile
Purple in colour. This wine has a great aromatic complexity with notes of ripe fruits like plum, raspberry and cherry flavors and finer notes of peony, violet and rosemary. The palate is rich, full, generous with woody and roasted notes that will develop over time.
Pommard rouge 2013 / 1 étoile
A ruby color. Aromas of red fruits with spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is generous with beautiful tannins. This wine will be more complex after few years of ageing and its cellaring potential is really good.
