Albert Bichot (Clos Frantin and Long Depaquit)

2019 Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaucopins, Domaine Long-Depaquit

Dry | White | Still

The Long-Depaquit parcel is situated right at the crest of the hill. This premier cru is reserved, tight and fresh with lemon zest and salty notes defining the palate. Some gunflint smoky notes should develop mineral complexity with time in bottle. A little shy right now, it should blossom a year or two. Excellent value for a premier cru.

Ready: 2021 - 2028
Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils

2019 Bourgogne Chardonnay, Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils

Dry | White | Still

The fruit comes from a number of parcels, all within the Chassagne commune. Alex says he looks for energy rather than too much ripeness in his Bourgogne. This has a wonderfully sweet core of nectarine, and some tart freshness balancing the natural roundness of the wine. A fragrant and charming Bourgogne Blanc, you will never regret having a few bottles of this in the cellar.

Ready: 2021 - 2026
Domaine Blain Sœur & Frère

2019 Pierre Bleue, Côte de Brouilly, Domaine Blain Sœur & Frère

Dry | Red | Still

This comes from a parcel of 60-year-old vines grown on the granite slopes of Mont Brouilly. These volcanic soils produce a wonderfully persistent style of Beaujolais, with the charming strawberry and cherry fruits on the nose. The palate abounds with dark juicy fruit and ripe, grippy tannins and a vibrat length. This has the structure to age extremely well.

Ready: 2021 - 2030
Domaine Bruno Colin

2019 Bourgogne Blanc, Bruno Colin

Dry | White | Still

Ready: 2021 - 2025
Domaine Chandon de Briailles

2019 Savigny-Lès-Beaune Blanc, Chandon de Briailles

Dry | White | Still

This comes from the sandy west-facing soils on the lower part of the village’s slope, which enjoy a cool and fresh microclimate. Always zippy and fragrant.

Ready: 2021 - 2026
Domaine Comte Armand

2019 Bourgogne Blanc, Comte Armand

Dry | White | Still

The domaine's tiny holdings of Chardonnay are situated on the flat plain opposite Pommard and Volnay. Only made in tiny quantities, there was just one large barrel in 2019. It is zesty and bright, with some tropical notes thanks to the Muscat clone of Chardonnay they have.

Ready: 2021 - 2025

2019 Bourgogne Aligoté, Comte Armand

Dry | White | Still

This is a secret gem of a wine to know about: outstanding value, and over-delivers in a big way in vintages like 2019. It's a blend of young vine fruit (now 10 years old) with some 90-year old Aligoté Dorée, whose tiny, golden berries are packed with vibrant flavours.

Ready: 2021 - 2025
Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard
Critic Score
90/100

2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

Dry | White | Still

La Maltroie is located just up the road from the winery, near the heart of the village. The domaine owns two parcels, one of 0.56 hectares and the other 0.17 hectares. Céline says it is always approachable, and in 2019 it is bursting with zesty fresh lemon. The palate is salty, noticeably weighted with a satisfying depth, and a persistent finish.

Ready: 2021 - 2028
Domaine Gilbert et Christine Felettig

2019 Bourgogne Aligoté, Gilbert et Christine Felettig

Dry | White | Still

This uncelebrated ‘other’ white grape from Burgundy is enjoying a moment: the wines are fresh, vibrant, wonderful for early drinking and offer unparalleled value. The Felettig example is everything we’re looking for: salty, fresh, and moreish.

Ready: 2021 - 2025
Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

2019 Chassagne-Montrachet, Jean-Marc Pillot

Dry | White | Still

This is from three of the village’s best communal sites: Les Pierres (93-year-old vines), Mazures (40+), and Houilleres (30). The younger vines give lift, elegance and a vibrant drive, while the older vines give depth and power. This has citrus zest and grilled nuts on the nose, with an impressive density and volume on the palate. Such a stylish village wine.

Ready: 2021 - 2027
Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin
Critic Score
89/100

2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Jean-Paul Droin

Dry | White | Still

This is a blend of five terroirs across the steep Vaillons premier cru. Blending gives Benoît the chance to introduce freshness, with higher acid fruit running through the riper parcels. 30% was fermented and aged in oak, giving a good depth of structure behind the bright and peachy fruit. It is usually one of the most forward and approachable in his cellar, and 2019 is no different, with its lovely scent of spring flowers. No need to wait here; it has the energy and tension to make it open from youth.

Ready: 2021 - 2028
Domaine Michel Bouzereau
Critic Score
86/100

2019 Bourgogne Chardonnay, Michel Bouzereau

Dry | White | Still

The fruit for this blend comes from three sites in Meursault (making up 60%), with the remainder from a single plot in Puligny. It is lemony, full of energy, and completely delicious; you’d be hard pressed to find a more crowd-pleasing Bourgogne Blanc, and even harder pressed to find one with these credentials coming in at the same price. It’s well structured enough to offer interest and complexity over the next four to five years, too.

2019 Meursault Les Grands Charrons, Michel Bouzereau

Dry | White | Still

This is one of the gems on our list: it may be village on paper, but this exceptionally well-placed parcel - an east-facing limestone vineyard that extends just beyond the band of premiers crus - delivers well beyond its status in the glass. It has a more amplified weight than the Bourgogne with a plump citrus fruit and nectarine drive.

Ready: 2021 - 2027

92/100

2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs-Gains, Michel Bouzereau

Dry | White | Still

You can really feel the character of the poor stony soil found in Puligny here: the wine stands in contrast to Jean-Baptiste’s Meursault premiers crus in its floral delicacy and racy edge. This superb 2019 should also open up a little earlier than the Meursaults, offering its enticing blossom character on the nose and lacy fine acidity with steely acidity on the palate. No need to wait too long here, this will sing from early on: its tight coil and fine grain are part of its charm. So fine and so promising.

Ready: 2021 - 2029
Domaine Patrick Javillier

2019 Meursault Les Clousots, Patrick Javillier

Dry | White | Still | 13.5%

This cuvée is a blend of two parcels: predominantly the hillside vineyard Les Clous, with a touch of Les Crotots lower down, which sits just next to Poruzots. Marion explained how the styles of the two parcels always complement each other. In 2019 it is smooth and complete, and it is a great shame volumes are down due to frost. No new oak is used here; this wine is all about pure fruit expression, with wonderful texture.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2019 Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Oligocène, Patrick Javillier

Dry | White | Still | 13.7%

This brilliant value Bourgogne Blanc comes from limestone parcels scattered around the Puligny side of Meursault. It has a pretty floral reduction and a flattering, full, luscious palate, with the vintage’s ripe but fresh acidity shining through. 25% new oak is relatively high for a Bourgogne, adding savoury definition - you get a lot of bang for your buck here. It is a great introduction to the Côte d’Or.

Ready: 2021 - 2026
Domaine Samuel Billaud
Critic Score
88/100

2019 Petit Chablis, Samuel Billaud

Dry | White | Still

This fruit comes from a parcel that Samuel owns just above Grand Cru Les Clos, where the soil shifts to a mixture of Portlandian and Kimmeridgian limestone. When the parcel was owned by Billaud Simon, it had a reputation as one of the best sites for Petit Chablis, and this has followed Samuel in his own venture. Limey, salty, and tight, with a neat line of acidity.

Ready: 2021 - 2024
Domaine de Montille
Critic Score
86/100

2019 Rully Blanc, Maison de Montille

Dry | White | Still

This cuvée is a Lay & Wheeler exclusive in the UK. It’s a clever purchase of négociant grapes that the domaine makes from the Côte Chalonnaise. All the vinification is done by the domaine’s team at their cellars in Meursault. White peach, vivid acidity, and a fine, creamy length.

Ready: 2021 - 2025

2019 Bourgogne Blanc, Domaine de Montille

Dry | White | Still

A delicate, floral, lemon-fresh and easy-drinking style of Bourgogne Blanc, from vineyards around Puligny-Montrachet.

Ready: 2021 - 2025
Domaine des Comtes Lafon

2019 Mâcon Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Magnum Dry | White | Still

Chardonnay here refers to the village, rather than the variety. Clos de la Crochette is a charming walled vineyard that Dominique bought in 2003. After a little investigation he discovered it is one of the most historic sites in all of Burgundy, first planted by the monks of Cluny (c.900 AD). This has beautiful tension and energy, it comes as little surprise this spot has been a favourite for winegrowers through the centuries.

2019 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Dry | White | Still

Many parcels are blended into this brilliant wine, all from the Viré side of the appellation. The old vines thrive in the village’s clay-rich top soil over limestone subsoil. It is impressively round and powerful and shows the domaine’s attention to detail paying dividends in its fine and complex structure. It is subtle and very finely done. A highlight in 2019.

Ready: 2021 - 2026

2019 Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Magnum Dry | White | Still

Fruit, fleshy and seemingly light in the nose, but with the weight and drive derived from the high altitude parcels on the palate, making for a charming example of what the Mâcon can do in talented hands.

Ready: 2021 - 2026
Jean-Claude Bessin
Critic Score
91.5/100

2019 Chablis 1er Cru La Forêt, Jean-Claude Bessin

Dry | White | Still

Initially this is a little shy, but a quick swirl releases an intense nose of classical saline lime and apple. There is a harmony here between the ripeness of the vintage, with ripe stone fruit, and the nervous freshness of this style of Chablis. Fennel and fresh flowers weave through the texture of the wine. This is excellent.

Ready: 2021 - 2029
Jean-Claude Lapalu

2019 Vin de France Eau Forte, Jean-Claude Lapalu

Dry | Red | Still | 13%

This is made from a high quality Beaujolais village parcel, but after the wine was rejected in 2012 for being ‘too pale’, Jean-Claude decided to change its classification to the much freer Vin de France, valuing the innate character of the wine over the AOC’s regulations. It remains one of the most interesting in his range. The palate is so light on its feet, with a lifted red berry energy. 100% whole bunch fruit gives it a cool, bright structure with lacy tannins. No sulphur dioxide is added at all here. Equally well suited as a chilled aperitif red or a superb lighter style to finish an evening off: this is natural winemaking at its finest, least-faddy best.

Ready: 2020 - 2026
