    Note: from 50+ year old vines and vinified with 100% whole clusters
    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses described the 2009 vintage as an "excellent vintage that was relatively straightforward. We did have some vineyards that were hit hard by hail, most notably Clos St. Denis, Clos de la Roche, Combottes and Charmes-Chambertin, but thankfully, it was more a question of quantity rather than quality. We picked between the 10th and 17th of September, which is not only a shorter harvest time than usual but also quite quick considering the crop load. Potential alcohols ranged from 12.5 to about 13.2% so there was very little, and in some cases no, chaptalization. We used about 90% of the stems in the vinification and we even moved up the percentage of whole clusters in the newly acquired vineyards where we have typically used less up to this point. We did do some very minor acidifying as the pHs were in the 3.6 range and we wanted to retain all of the freshness possible. As to the percentage of new wood, we used 40 to 45% for the villages wines and increased it proportionately to between 90 and 100% for the grands crus. Overall, I think the 2009 will be extremely popular as the wines are ripe but not too ripe and will be accessible early yet they should age well too." Seysses also observed that viticulturally speaking, the vineyards acquired in 2005 were almost at the same level as the existing vineyards. Note that the '09 Charmes-Chambertin and Beaux-Monts were not presented for review as both were still in malo. The excellent in-bottle '08s came in about where my ranges suggested that they would and as long as you intend to age them for an appropriate period, they should absolutely be candidates for your cellars.

    Tasting note: An expressive nose offers up very spicy and largely floral-dominated aromas of black raspberry liqueur. The rich, generous and forward middle weight flavors possess good verve as well as ample minerality that give lift to the mouth coating and gorgeously long finish brimming with dry extract. This is one of the more structured vintages of this wine that I have seen as it will require 10 to 15 years to be at its best.

    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses described the 2008 vintage as one that had a "great deal of shot berries and this was important for two reasons as it added concentration as well as naturally gave better aeration to the normal-sized bunches. There was a lot of sorting required, both for rot and for under ripe berries. We did a normal vinification of between 10 to 12 days of cuvaison with a relatively high percentage of whole clusters, which ranged from 2/3 to a full 100%. We reduced the amount of new wood slightly though probably not enough to really be detectable in the finished wines. Overall, I am very bullish on the vintage and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people who were influenced by the pre-malo comments." The in-bottle '07s came in about where my ranges suggested that they would and while they are very pretty, and in some cases genuinely excellent, they cannot match the quality of their '08 counterparts when taken as a group.

    Tasting note: A very stylish and ultra fresh nose offers up classy if restrained red pinot fruit liberally laced with notes of stone and rose petal, both of which can be found on the detailed, pure and lacy middle weight flavors that are complex, focused, mouth coating, crisp and solidly persistent. I like the balance and punch.

Red Burgundy Dujac 2017 Bonnes Mares

1 Bottle 75cl £525
  • Burghound 

    Tasting note: An exceptionally pretty and, similar to the Malconsorts, somewhat sweet nose combines notes of lavender, rose petal, violet, red currant and a whiff of orange pekoe tea. There is good if not special mid-palate density to the overtly intense flavors that terminate in a dusty, austere and reasonably powerful finish where the tannins are a bit spiky. My sense is though that with a few years of age they will round off and render the finish more harmonious.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2012 Clos de la Roche -

2 Case 6 75cl £650
  • Tasting note: A pungently earthy nose also offers supporting aromas of gentle wood, spice and both red and dark fruit components. There is excellent richness and body to the large-scaled, mineral-inflected and openly powerful flavors that possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract before terminating in a striking long finish. This is a robust and very serious effort that possesses excellent cellaring potential and note well that it will need it as this is presently a bruiser. 93/100

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2011 Clos Saint Denis

3 Case 6 75cl £690
  • Tasting note: A tight and while not completely closed, it would be fair to describe as the nose of subtly layered and spicy dark currant aromas as highly restrained. By contrast, there is fine vibrancy and freshness to the silky and focused middle weight flavors that are shaped by fine grained if distinctly firm tannins, all wrapped in a wonderfully intense, mouth coating, impressively persistent and austere finish. This may be a Clos St. Denis of finesse but it doesn't lack for power or seriousness.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2011 Mazis Chambertin

1 Case 12 75cl £1,025
  • Tasting note: There is a bit more wood on the fresh and open sauvage-infused nose of both red and dark currant, earth and game hints. There is excellent volume to the very smooth and polished mid-palate of the broad-shouldered flavors that possess plenty of dry extract before culminating in a mineral-inflected, powerful and long finish. This moderately firm effort is supported by tannins that are ripe if borderline rustic. A classic Mazis.

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 Dujac 2007 Chambertin

1 Case 3 75cl £4,850£4,600
  • Chambertin

    Bright medium red. Aromas of black cherry, red berries, iron and flowers hint at a liqueur-like ripeness. Dense, sweet and deep, but in a rather polite style for Chambertin, with its fruits and flowers to the fore. But this classy, beautifully balanced wine shows a weightless quality that is compelling.

    Note: from the climat Champs Traversin
    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses describes the 2013 vintage as "a very wet vintage that threw its fair share of challenges at us during the growing season. The flowering was troubled and resulted in a high percentage of shot berries which is great for wine quality but not for quantity. Things didn't go well for most of the season though we did have a 30 day window of beautiful weather between the middle of August to the middle of September. Then conditions turned wet again and generally speaking there was rot pressure beginning to build. We waited a bit longer than many of our neighbors and didn't begin picking until the 7th of October and continued through to the 13th. As a whole the fruit was pretty clean though some sectors required more sorting than others. Quantities came in slightly lower than what we obtained in 2012 but this isn't true across the board as some parcels gave us more and others less. Potential alcohols were variable as well with a range of 11.4 to 12.4% though I underscore that I'm using a conversion rate of 18 grams of sugar per liter which is a good deal more conservative than the regulatory rate. Acidities are firm without being aggressive and remind me of what we had in 2008. We used a bit less whole clusters than we usually do which is to say on average about 70% though the actual range is from 33 to 100%. As to the wines, my view is that 2013 is a classic Burgundian vintage and at the very least it's a good year. To bracket that comment somewhat I prefer 2013 to 2011 but not to 2010 or 2012." The 2012s, revisited below, were bottled between December 2013 and March 2014.

    Tasting note: An exuberantly spicy and floral nose features a variety of red berry fruit scents laced with hints of sandalwood and Asian spices. There is a silky and restrained mouth feel to the intense, concentrated and detailed flavors that brim with dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the moderately firm tannins on the lingering finale. This is unusually accessible in the context of the Dujac 2012s and should drink well earlier than any of these grand crus.

    Issue: 13
    Producer note: Jacques Seysses commented that he believes 2001 is "a very good vintage" but cautioned that it can be variable because "it was very easy to extract color and the various dry extract components so undoubtedly some growers will have extracted too much tannin". Seysses also noted that sugars were good, essentially coming in between 12 and 12.5% with solid pHs and yields in the 45 hl/ha range for villages wines and about 40 hl/ha for the grands crus. The malos were deliberately delayed because slower malos allow for the use of less SO2. Overall, Seysses said that he much prefers 2001 to 2000. (Wilson-Daniels Ltd., St. Helena, California).
    In Issue 5, I provided a bit of background regarding the small négociant operation that Jeremy Seysses directs. He noted that they had changed several of their grape sources but overall they are pleased with the progress they have made persuading growers to alter their viticultural approach in search of higher quality. Moreover, word of the small operation has spread and several other growers have called expressing interest in working with the Seysses so the range of appellations may grow in the future. The Fils et Père wines are made slightly differently than their Domaine counterparts as there is some destemming (between 0 and 50%) with slightly less new oak (50 to 60%). The quality of these wines is terrific but especially so given that they are from purchased grapes and all from villages level appellations.
    Tasting note: Austere, backward and brooding nose of red and black fruit, crushed herbs and a touch of earth and leather with full, complex, driving, muscular and very powerful flavors that are more linear and direct in character than either the Clos de la Roche or the Echézeaux and possess outstanding persistence. This is solidly structured yet not hard but it will require every bit of a decade to begin drinking well and it should age gracefully for years. In a word, gorgeous.

Red Burgundy Dujac 2015 Charmes Chambertin

1 Case 6 75cl £1,750
  • 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.

    Tasting note: This is more restrained though here too there is a plethora of spice elements on the nose dark currant, violet, rose petal and exotic tea scents. The 2013 version of this wine is sleeker than it usually is because while there is clearly good muscle the mouth feel of the medium weight plus flavors is more refined than usual, all wrapped in a powerful, intense and mineral-driven finale.

    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses described the 2010 vintage as a "vintage of very small production. We had a poor fruit set that was complicated by the winter frost. We had some parcels that were especially hard hit, in particular in our Morey villages parcels where we lost 50% in red and fully 90% in white. There was a very high incidence of shot berries which of course further reduced yields. On the plus side, the small crop definitely saved the harvest in my view because without it we would almost certainly have had other problems and not just an absence of phenolic maturity but also a higher frequency of rot due to the more tightly packed bunches. As it was we had moderate sorting for botrytis and for under ripe berries. What remained though was of excellent quality and as such we vinified with a very high proportion of stems, which I would estimate at about 90% overall but that of course means that a number of wines had fully 100%. As to the wines, I very much like them as they have real freshness and a highly appealing sense of energy. They're ripe, transparent, balanced and there really isn't anything to complain about! For me, 2008 resembles 1993 and 2010 is similar to 2002." As to the now in-bottle 2009s, they have fully justified the considerable confidence I placed in them at this time last year and as the scores and commentaries suggest, they are in fact brilliant wines.

Loeb, www.owloeb.com, UK, Berry Bros & Rudd, www.bbr.com, UK, Flint Wines, www.flintwines.com, UK and Lay & Wheeler, www.laywheeler.com , UK).
    Tasting note: A perfumed and ultra-elegant nose that is discreet, pure and very cool gives rise to restrained notes of essence of red pinot fruit, rose petals, lavender, violet, stone and earth. There is outstanding richness and drive to the powerful and seriously intense broad-shouldered flavors that possess superb mid-palate density as there is an impressive abundance of dry extract, all wrapped in a linear and massively persistent and wonderfully refined finish. Despite all the size, weight and taut muscularity, the supporting tannins are actually on the refined side and the 2010 Bonnes Mares will very likely go down as one of the more distinguished vintages for this highly storied wine. Note though that like all of the Dujac 2010s, this will require significant cellar time.

2 Bottle 75cl £625
  • The 2018 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is blessed with one of my favorite aromatics from Dujac this year, featuring black cherries, raspberry, crushed stone and pressed iris flower, all quite restrained for a Bonnes-Mares but showing outstanding focus. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, a fine line of acidity and a strict and quite linear finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding.
