2021 Marsannay, Marchand-Tawse Dry | Red | Still

This is drawn from a couple of parcels on the south side of the commune towards Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin. In 2021, it has a ripe fruit profile, with red plum and wild strawberry, and some spicy, supple tannins giving it an elegant and fine edge. It has body and impact and is deliciously long with a saline finish.

2021 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Marchand-Tawse Dry | Red | Still

Most of the fruit comes from the Côte de Nuits, with the majority from around Nuits itself, with the balance from the Côte de Beaune. The fruit is the star of the show here - strawberries, raspberries, red plum. It is a fresh and crunchy style of bourgogne, with enough bite to give it a vibrant length. It should drink well from a young age. And it’s an absolute bargain.

Young: 2024 - 2029
2021 Chablis, Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin Dry | White | Still

Benoît’s village Chablis is one of the best out there. It's a blend of about 14 parcels all made in tank. The 2021 is classicly mineral, flinty and more savoury in style than in previous years. It has a tension and persistence that reverberates across the palate. Nice chalky freshness, with a long, saline finish and poised citrus fruit. Brilliant value.

Young: 2023 - 2029
2021 Bourgogne Le Haut des Champs, Jean-Marc Pillot Dry | White | Still

The 2021 Bourgogne Chardonnay Le Haut des Champs has a well-defined bouquet with nectarine and peach aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite saline in the mouth with a bitter lemon finish. Fine.

Young: 2023 - 2029
2021 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge Mes Vieilles Vignes, Jean-Marc Pillot Dry | Red | Still

Jean-Marc makes some of the best Chassagne Rouge around. With old vines (as old as 70 years old) planted on the clay soil pockets from 5 different parcels around the village, he has produced a great example again in 2021. This old vine cuvée is perfumed with rich, red-fruit and spice, and has a pleasing sour cherry freshness on the palate.

Young: 2025 - 2033
2021 Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières, Marchand-Tawse (Vignes de la Famille Tawse) Dry | Red | Still

This is a balanced and refined Savigny, with a long, plummy, spicy finish. It has 20% whole bunch, helping draw out the tannins in a more gentle expression, which works well here. Perfumed with plum, red cherry and rose petal, with a delicious freshness. Fantastic.

Young: 2025 - 2033
2021 Santenay Les Champs Claude, Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot Dry | Red | Still

Champs Claude comes from 4 different parcels of vines in Santenay, with an average age of 60 years. This is classic Pinot Noir - full of subtle, red fruit on the nose and fresh, balanced with a great energy on the palate. Brilliant value.

Young: 2026 - 2035
2021 Beaune 1er Cru Tuvilains, Marchand-Tawse (Vignes de la Famille Tawse) Dry | Red | Still

Tuvilains is a lovely vineyard on the Pommard side of the town. Scented with rhubarb and raspberries, with a lot of structure on the palate. There is 20% whole bunch here, and some support from new oak. In 2021, it is spicy, red fruited and light bodied, with a refreshing crunchiness to the tannins.

Young: 2025 - 2032
1999 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Bolgheri, Tuscany Red | Still
