Burgundy (Cote Chalonnaise)

White Wines

Domaine Dureuil-Janthial, RULLY

Raymond Dureuil, and his son, Vincent, have carved something of a name for themselves over the past few years. If Raymond is the red wine specialist, then Vincent has earned himself the reputation as being one of Burgundy's leading white wine-makers. He is now running his own estate but is very much in charge of white wine production with his father. The 2002 Rully Blanc is most impressive with its minerally, buttered-toast nose leading into a well-focused full-bodied, substantially fruity and clean palate with a fresh acidity and a peach and honeysuckle blossom -fragrance at the end of the palate. The 2002 1er Cru Meix Cadot is vigorous and complex being sourced from 80 year-old vines and has an impressive purity of fruit and a fleshy, exotic palate and perfect balancing acidity.

Chteau du Cray - BUXY

This pretty property is located at Buxy and has belonged to the Perret du Cray family for centuries. The chateau cultivates 20 hectares of vines in both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Today the vineyard is cultivated by Roland Perret du Cray, together with the vineyard manager Serge Pigneret, himself descending from a very old vineyard family.

Domaine Franois Lumpp - GIVRY

Domaine François Lumpp is generally recognised as being one of the finest domaines in the village of Givry. François and Isabelle Lumpp have about 16 acres under vine all of which have been replanted over the last fifteen years using the finest vines possible and very close spacing. They are fanatical about their viticulture and only allow very low yields thus achieving stunning concentration in their wines. All the grapes are hand picked and hand sorted before vinification takes place. Their wines are amoungst the finest you will find in the Côte Chalonnaise.

Red Wines

Domaine Jean Marchal, MERCUREY

Jean Maréchal and Marc Bonvigne (Jean's son-in-law) have continued the successes that this 10 hectare estate enjoyed in the early 1990's. Both are totally dedicated and passionate about what they produce and are making some profound, brilliantly coloured and complex Pinot Noir which always have overtones of cherries and raspberries. The Maurice Chevalier look-a-like, Jean, maintains one of the most immaculate wineries and barrel-cellars in Burgundy and this attention to detail is clearly reflected in the quality of the wines. The 'village' 2000 Mercurey is deep-coloured with a sweet, seductive nose of black cherries and complex layers of soft fruitiness. The pure-flavoured and fine 1998 Mercurey, 1er Cru Clos l'Eveque is from 75 year-old vines and it has an amazing grip and intensity of fruit with very ripe, integrated tannins and a substantial finish.

Domaine Franois Lumpp, GIVRY

François and Isabelle Lumpp make Givry's finest red wines and we are delighted to be listing them for the first time. From 6.5 hectares of vines (5 of which are Pinot Noir) the Lumpps produce reds which are sublime, pure, poised and beautifully balanced. All of the vineyards have been re-planted with new rootstocks (low yielding clones) over the past fifteen years, after François broke away from the original family domaine. Viticulture is fanatical and yields are kept very low. All grapes are hand-picked and there is a further, severe selection prior to vinification.
