Red Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2015 Clos de Beze 3 Case 12 75cl £1,925
  • Tasting note: More subtle though still prominent oak can be found on the much more reserved red currant and dark berry-suffused nose that displays an astonishing array of spice, exotic tea and soft earth aromas. There is better energy as well as more evident minerality on the sleek and sophisticated flavors that deliver superb length and depth on the balanced finale. This is a powerful but classy effort that, very much like the Le Corton, is going to need a long stay in a cool cellar to fully resolve the supporting structure.

Red Burgundy Comte Liger-Belair 2015 Vosne Romanee 6 Bottle 75cl £465
  • Tasting note: There is enough reduction present to push the underlying fruit to the background today. Otherwise there is both good freshness and a lovely inner mouth perfume to the firm and punchy medium weight flavors that possess excellent depth and persistence. This should be a very good Vosne villages.

Red Burgundy Coquard Loison Fleurot 2015 Clos Vougeot 2 Case 6 75cl £820
Red Burgundy Coquard Loison Fleurot 2015 Echezeaux 1 Case 6 75cl £975
  • The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru offers attractive, pure black cherry and raspberry notes that have been given a good lick of oak, but the wood feels simpatico to the fruit tucked in behind. The plush, flamboyant palate is medium-bodied with silky-smooth tannins. There is satisfying delineation and focus on the velvety-smooth finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

    Score: 94 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, November 2018

    Like the Clos de la Roche, the 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru is ripe and dramatic, bursting with aromas of dark fruits, orange rind and minty new oak. Lavishly rich and full-bodied, it's layered, concentrated and multidimensional, clamping down on the firm, compact and vanillin-inflected finish. 2020 - 2035

    Score: 93 William Kelley, Wine Advocate (239), October 2018

    Deep crimson. Kerpow! Great intensity on the nose. Sweet hit on the palate and then polished tannins and just the right amount of acidity. This should make attractive old bones. Not ridiculously expensive either.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2015 Musigny Vieilles Vignes 1 Bottle 150cl £1,500
  • Score: 97 Deep ruby color. A kaleidoscopically spicy and broad-ranging nose grudgingly reveals notes of red cherry, cassis, plum, violet, Asian-style tea, sandalwood and hoisin. The velvety and mouth coating imposingly-scaled and intense mineral-driven flavors are blessed with seemingly endless reserves of dry extract that coat the palate on the highly seductive finish that delivers fantastically good length on the youthfully austere, backward and immaculately well-balanced finale. This opulent yet very serious effort is also going to require a very long snooze in a very cool cellar but it should be a remarkable Musigny when it finally emerges. I would add that I don't know if this will be potentially one of the all-time great vintages for the de Vogüé Musigny but my guess is that it will at least be in the conversation, which given the historical track record of this wine, is no small compliment.

    Tasted: Jan 15, 2018

    Tasting note: An extract of black cherry nose is interwoven with notes of earth, violet, spice and plum liqueur scents. The very dense and serious yet vibrant and relatively refined big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that serves to mostly buffer the powerful and very firm tannic spine on the once again naturally sweet, sappy and massively long finish. As is often the case with the de Vogüé Bonnes Mares, this is a 'buy and forget you own it' wine.

Red Burgundy Drouhin Joseph 2015 Nuits 1er Cru Proces 3 Case 6 75cl £245
Red Burgundy Dujac 2015 Echezeaux 1 Bottle 75cl £460
  • Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of maraschino cherry, dried flowers and red licorice. Silky, juicy and fine-grained, conveying terrific intensity and a light touch to its red fruit, milk chocolate and mint flavors. The tactile, palate-staining finish features noble tannins. I find this more typical and more aromatic than the 2016 version. The yield here was under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jeremy Seysses, but the wine showed a distinctly relaxed quality.

Red Burgundy Dujac 2015 Clos de la Roche 1 Bottle 75cl £505
  • Bright, dark red. Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Echézeaux, offering scents of black raspberry, clove, mocha and dark chocolate. Similarly more soil-driven in the mouth than the 2016 version, but with its thick flavors of earth, spices and saline minerality conveying a light touch for 2015. Finishes sappy, vibrant and long, with thoroughly ripe tannins and echoing minerality.

Red Burgundy Dujac 2015 Charmes Chambertin 1 Case 3 75cl £900
  • This is more aromatically restrained still as the earthy and sauvage-tinged nose only grudgingly provides glimpses of the pretty lavender, spice, tea and red cherry aromas. This possesses an interesting palate impression as the mid-palate is round, supple and caressing yet the finish is dusty, firm, serious and borderline rustic. I suspect that this will loosen up quickly such that it will be approachable after only 7 to 8 years yet require 15 to 18 to arrive at its full peak.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2015 Vosne 1er Cru Suchots 1 Case 3 150cl £450
  • Tasting note: In contrast to the prior two wines this is aromatically much more reserved though aggressive swirling eventually liberates Asian spice box, tea, plum and violet scents. There is fine richness to the very suave and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundant amounts of dry extract that impart a sappy texture to the lingering and solidly complex finale. This is both classy and stylish and built to reward medium plus-term aging.

Red Burgundy Remoissenet Pere & Fils 2015 Clos Vougeot 1 Case 3 150cl £750
  • Tasting note: The brooding nose is compositionally similar to that of the Charmes-Chambertin but the earth component is more pronounced. The big-bodied and imposingly-scaled flavors exhibit plenty of punch and muscle on the mouth coating, mocha-infused, youthfully austere and strikingly persistent finish thanks to the copious amounts of dry extract. Despite the impressive size and weight this is not a rustic wine though it's certainly going to require patience.

    Note: from Mazis-Bas
    Producer note: Eric Rousseau was away at the time of my visit so it was his daughter Cyrielle (at the domaine since 2012) who enthusiastically explained that 2015 "gave us a super growing season that was relatively easy though not without a few concerns. There was some early season oidium pressure and then due to the fact that the conditions were so hot and dry that there were several short periods of hydric stress. Otherwise though there really wasn't much to cause anxiety and the fruit progressively ripened to a very high level. We chose to begin picking on the 3rd of September and brought in immaculately clean fruit that possessed potential alcohols that ranged between 12.2 to 13%. The skins were thick that there was a relatively high incidence of shot berries. As such yields, while still reasonable, were roughly 20% lower than what we realized in 2014. As to the wines they're at once structured but inviting and refreshing and thus they should probably drink well for all their lives as the tannins are quite ripe yet there is good freshness and a fine sense of harmony." While it's hardly news, for the last 20 years the domaine has hardly put a foot wrong and it certainly didn't in 2015 as the wines, especially at the grand cru level, are brilliant. However I strongly advise that you not ignore their 2014s as they too are absolutely worthy of your consideration. The 2014s, revisited below, were bottled in April 2016. Speaking of bottling, Rousseau noted that they are now using bottles where the bottom of it is embossed with the name of the domaine.

    Tasting note: A much more sauvage-suffused nose features plenty of warm earth character on the spicy, floral and dark currant aromas. This too possesses a supple mid-palate as the slightly bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors display excellent power and punch on the relatively robust and mineral-driven and well-balanced finish. While this should be approachable young, if you wish to experience it at its peak plenty of patience will be required.

Red Burgundy Rousseau 2015 Chambertin 1 Bottle 75cl £2,150
  • Tasting note: Here too there is just enough oak to mention but once again it's not really enough to impair the purity of the distinctly cool and ultra-spicy red currant, underbrush, sandalwood, lilac and plenty of earth aromas. The rich, intense and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors possess a similar level of minerality that is borderline pungent and it informs the explosively long, firm and very serious finish. This notably powerful, but not really austere effort, displays magnificent potential and if it develops its usual degree of complexity over time it should merit the upper end of my projected range. But as structured and firm as it is, I suspect that this will drink well after only 6 to 8 years of age thanks to the incredible abundance of dry extract.

    Outstanding

    Tasting note: A spicy and fresh if distinctly ripe and earthy nose reflects notes of mostly dark berry fruit and floral aromas. There is both fine richness and volume to the fleshy medium-bodied flavors that are moderately firm, balanced and delicious while offering solid depth and length. This is so rich and succulent that it could easily be enjoyed now or just as easily held for up to a decade.
