  • Petit Chablis 2017, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    Petit Chablis 2017, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    WB17

    Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre met at university where they both qualified as oenologists. Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago.

     

    Today, they own 40 hectares of vines – all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone – throughout the region. The vines are mainly aged between 25 and 35 years although some date back to when Gilles’s greatgrandfather ran the domaine.

     

    Gilles is in charge of viticulture. The finest possible grapes are grown with a fastidious, environmentally conscious approach to quality, lower yields and scrupulous selection. Nathalie oversees winemaking, where small, temperature controlled stainless steel tanks are used to vinify each parcel separately.

     

    The resulting wines are beautiful expressions of classic, fine, concentrated, pure, steely, minerally Chablis.

  • Macon-Fuissé “Le Haut de Fuissé” 2016/17, Domaine Pierre Vessigaud, 13% vol, 75cl

    Macon-Fuissé “Le Haut de Fuissé” 2016/17, Domaine Pierre Vessigaud, 13% vol, 75cl

    WB04

    Vignerons for 5 generations, Domaine Vessigaud is a small, family-owned property situated in the hamlet of Pouilly, in the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé appéllation.

     

    The grapes for “Le Haute de Fuissé” are from 15-25 year old Chardonnay vines grown in a 2 hectare vineyard on the higher hillsides of Fuissé – they are characterised by producing wines with good minerality, fine structure and elegance. The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone and the general aspect of the vineyard is south/south west.

     

    The harvest is manual followed by fermentation in a mixture of casks and vats using only natural yeasts. The young wine is allowed to rest on its lees to add depth and complexity before being aged in old oak casks for 10 months.

     

    Pale straw in appearance, the nose has ripe fruit with zesty citrus notes in the background. The palate is round and generous with layered tropical fruit flavours supported by fresh acidity and elegant minerality. The wood flavours are restrained.

  • Rully Blanc 2017, Paul & Marie Jacqueson, Rully, 13% vol, 75cl

    Rully Blanc 2017, Paul & Marie Jacqueson, Rully, 13% vol, 75cl

    WB06

    Founded by Henri Jacqueson in 1947, succeeded by his son Paul in 1972 and joined by Paul’s daughter Marie in 2006, and more recently by his son Pierre, this domaine has long been recognised as one of the very best in the Côte Chalonnaise and its wines adorn the lists of many of the finest restaurants in France.

     

    They have 13 hectares of wonderfully sited vines, many of which are very old, and prune hard to reduce yields to around 35 hl/ha. They only work the vineyards manually, with very minimal vine treatments. They are one of very few producers in the village (together with Dureuil-Janthial) to hand-pick everything. Extremely proficient winemaking and judicious use of new oak (20% for whites and 25% for reds) make for beautifully crafted, ripe, intense, sensual wines which have the class to belie their origins.

     

    The delicious Rully Blanc is from three sites in Fromanges, La Barre and Chaponnières totalling 3 hectares.

     

    There is toasty oak on the nose as well as fresh mineral aromas. The palate is full and generous with layered flavours and a creamy texture. The finish is long and persistent with firm grip from the balancing acidity.

  • Chablis 1er Cru “Beauroy” 2017, Domaine Hamelin, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Chablis 1er Cru “Beauroy” 2017, Domaine Hamelin, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    WB21

    Thierry Hamelin’s family domaine is 36ha in the villages of Poinchy, Lignorelles and Beines. He now works with his son, Charles, who has studied oenology and worked in New Zealand and other regions.

     

    The Premier Cru Cru Beauroy is from a 3.9ha site on steep, south facing slopes at an inclination of 30-40° on Kimmeridgian soil. The vines were planted between 1980 and 1982. This type of soil, regarded as the best in the Chablis region, contains mineral-rich clay and has a high content of marine fossils which gives the soil its high lime content. This in turn gives the wines great intensity and character.

     

    No wood is used with the wine being fermented and aged for 12-18 months in stainless steel.

     

    Vivid pale yellow in appearance with a hint of green, the nose is very expressive with the aromas of white flowers and fresh minerality. The palate is dry, powerful and rich with the ripe fruit supported by fine acidity and excellent minerality. A Premier Cru of great elegance and finesse.

     

    The Hamelin’s lost over 40% of the crop in 2016 because of hail and 55% in 2017 following 5 consecutive days of frost!. So a whole vintage has been lost in 2 years.

  • Mercurey Blanc 2017, “La Brigadière”, François Raquillet, Mercurey, 13% vol, 75cl

    Mercurey Blanc 2017, “La Brigadière”, François Raquillet, Mercurey, 13% vol, 75cl

    WB07

    François Raquillet, the 11th generation of grape growers in Mercurey, has 10 hectares of superbly sited, mostly old, vines. He believes in low yields, mature (rather than super-ripe) fruit and a severe selection at the sorting table. The depth, richness and concentration which characterise his wines are a result of this, rather than any over extraction.

     

    The Mercurey Blanc “La Brigadière” is a delicious revelation, from 25 year old vines and vinified in 400ltr. demi-muids (20% new).

     

    The wine is pale straw in appearance with a taut, mineral driven nose reflecting the limestone soils of the vineyards. The palate is full and dry with notes of dried fruits and honey. A wine of great finesse rather than power.

  • Pouilly-Fuissé “L’Ame Forest” 2016, Domaine Eric Forest, 13% vol, 75cl

    Pouilly-Fuissé “L’Ame Forest” 2016, Domaine Eric Forest, 13% vol, 75cl

    WB16

    Eric is a young vigneron, based in the village of Vergisson, and currently has 4.8 hectares of vines planted between 1930 and 1979. He has inherited a great knowledge of nature and biodynamics from his grandfather and this has been a major influence in his approach to viticulture and winemaking.

     

    All grapes are hand picked and fermented and matured for ten to fifteen months in barriques and demi-muids. The wines are hand bottled and are, usually, unfiltered.

     

    The Pouilly Fuissé L’Ame Forest is a blend of two complementary, individual vineyards – “Les Tilliers” and ” La Côte” located on the northern slope of the Vergisson hill.  The resultant wine is full, rich and minerally with great length.

     

    Pale straw in appearance, the fresh nose displays citrus and stone fruit aromas. Elegant on the palate, with a lively attack.  A saline and mineral wine with subtle and harmonious oak flavours. A very long finish.
