Our wine comments
The nose has got a big intensity, on typical fruits like quetsche, and yellow peach. Honeyed and milky notes come to add of the complexity. The mouth is rich and ripe up, with a good woody.
Fine and very floral wine, with notes of honey. The mouth is elegant, fresh on notes of white fruits, with a beautiful lemony length. It is already a big wine with a lot of freshness.
High quality nose, mainly on dried fruits (apricot, hazelnut), and of beautiful woody notes. In mouth, we win in scale, with a long ageing announced during the woody notes should melt away with this ageing.
A discreet nose for the moment but with a big complexity: the whole in wooded one well melted gets involved a floral dominant, with the peach, the buttered milky sweet notes. The mouth is rich, warm, with a beautiful maturity, rather on the bees-wax and the orange zest.
Very fresh nose, with floral one intense, very fine. Woody mouth, in accordance with the freshness of the nose. Racy, very elegant wine and well-structured.

Auxey-Duresses Les Clous 2007
It is apple and lime fresh on the nose yet there is a richness lurking in the background. On the palate the mix of fleshy pineapple and tropical fruit backed by sweet melon gives the feeling of power and richness. Some freshness is apparent but the ripe power of the fruit tends to dominate.
Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Le Sentier du Clou 2007
The richness on the nose is backed by some lighter mineral and flint. There is depth to the fruit on the palate, ripe melon and pineapple but behind there is the freshness of apple and greengage. The finish has an attractive mix of flavours and good length.
Meursault Les Charrons 2007
The nose is quite light attractively floral behind the fragrance is richer honeyed apricot. The start of the palate has weight, the sweetness nicely balanced by apple freshness and flinty minerals. Towards the finish the honeyed style of Meursault comes through with a powerful mix of apricot and pineapple, depth of fruit but not greatly complex.
Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières 2007
The mineral driven floral nose with lime and apple is misleading as the palate is rich and opulent. Greengage and melon lend weight to the palate, the sweetness of honey adding to the fleshiness. Towards the back there is structure, mineral and apple freshness, flint acidity all lifting the flavours and giving a stylish elegance.
Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières 2007
The racy steely nose, all very flint driven, is so typical of Perrières. The mix of acacia, honeysuckle and apple blossom is charmingly fragrant. There is a honeyed sweetness to the palate but as flint and mineral underpin it does not feel over rich and this combined with fresh greengage gives an it an attractive racy brightness.
