Bertrand Ambroise Bourgogne Côte d’Or Pinot Noir 2017
This charming wine features predominant fruity aromas of blackcurrant and wild red berries. Velvety and silky, this wine boasts soft, balanced structure on the palate, which ends with a delicately perfumed finish.
Cave de Lugny Macon Villages 2019
This wine has depth, intensity and so much flavour. It’s fresh with glorious notes of zesty citrus, delicate white flowers and a hint of honey. This is an archetypal Chardonnay from the Mâcon Villages in the south of Burgundy that uses different terroirs to combine minerality, delicacy and fruit expression.
Jules Desjourneys Pouilly Fuisse 2016
The 2016 Pouilly-Fuisse wafts from the glass with a honeyed bouquet of yellow orchard fruit, lemon oil, confit citrus and beeswax. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, mineral and tense, with considerable concentration and structural reserve, concluding with a long, saline finish.

Meursault Cuvee Charles Maxime 2017
The Latour-Giraud Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime is a very attractive Meursault in terms of price, made by a fantastic authentic house. In the glass, the Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime is light yellow to yellowish. In the nose butter, nuts, apple and spiciness of wood. In the mouth a round attack, creamy but elegant and with finesse because of the minerals and the beautiful acids. Good integration of the wood.
Ponsot Rully en Bas de Vauvry Blanc 2019
Jean-Baptiste farms 8.5 hectares all located in the AOP Rully and sustainably farmed with organic practices: no insecticide, no weed-killer, no anti-rot and no chemicals at all. Jean-Baptiste doesn’t care to be certified but is as respectful of his land as many certified organic producers.
This wine was able to adopt its lieu-dit when fruit from a second plot was discarded and everything came from this excellent site that sits just below the 1er Crus. Aged in a both stainless steel and oak, though very little new, this is full of lively, floral fruit with some spice and good drive.
Terres Dorées Charme de Jean-Paul Brun Cremant de Bourgogne
Great alternative to famous Champagne! Méthode Traditionelle which is joyful and lively with zesty acidity, vibrant fruit flavours with a faint echo of toasted nut and brioche aromas.
