Press review
    • Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune 2020 - James Suckling - 90/100 pts

      Plenty of bright red fruit on the nose, but also some spice and licorice. We really like the way the fruit animates the sleek palate and the fresh acidity makes the finish crisp and clean. Drink now.

    • Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2019 - Tom Lewis - UK - November 2022

      Ruby-coloured with complex gaminess, spice and cherry fruit; fresh black cherries savoury mocha and nutmeg with liquorice; firm, savoury and concentrated with persistent yet gentle tannins. Very Good.

      Pair with red meats, simply prepared game, sausage cassoulet and mild cheeses.

    • Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune 2018, 88/100, James Suckling

      A simple red with plum and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium body. Drink now.

    • Bourgogne-Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2018 -, Allen Meadows - Spring 2020 - "Nicely detailed"

      The nose features the essence of various red berries, earth and a whiff of spice. There is better verve to the nicely detailed and lightly stony middle weight flavors that offer depth and persistence on the firm saline-inflected finale.
