Wines Region / Country Source Cost Comments
1. Vignerons de Mancey 2011 Macôn-Villages
Macônnaise
The Wine Chambers
£12.99
12.5%. The wine has a mineral, flinty nose with a suggestion of richness. Clean, a little zesty and a touch of nettle, possibly a touch bitter throughout, but warming.
2. Domaine de la Feuillarde 2011 Les Charmones Saint Véran
Macônnaise
The Wine Chambers
£14.99
13%. It had a light and fresh nose, lovely weight on the palate, a heavier wine but not as “sluggish” as the first, the alcohol carries better. Citric nose with more acidity. A long, subtle, lingering finish.
3. Domaine Chataigneraie-Laborier (Gilles Morat) 2011 Sur la Roche Pouilly-Fuissé
Macônnaise
The Wine Chambers
£26.99
13%. Buttery, with an oak nose that appears strong but carries through the palate well. Toasted coconut on the palate and through to the long finish.
4. Vignerons de Mancey 2011 Macôn Rouge
Macônnaise
The Wine Chambers
£9.99
12%. Young fresh and fruity. Peppery with very grainy tannins with a sourness at the edges, a little acetic (Kelvyn used astringent). A curiosity, not unpleasant though.
5. Domaine Michel Briday 2009 Champs Cloux Rully 1er Cru
Côte Chalonnaise
The Wine Chambers
£22.99 (£45 in Magnum)
13%. A deeper, fruitier nose than the Gamay – quite fresh. On the palate it was tannic but not rough. with a chocolate aspect and a little sweet fruit. There was a vegetal aspect and it was quite long with a caramel finish. Ben suggested the vegetal notes he picked up would merge/disappear with age.
6. Domaine Paul Misset 1999 Nuits-Saint-Georges
Côte de Nuits
The Wine Chambers
£34.99
13%. Bottle variation came to the fore with the ’99, but not necessarily as a fault. One side much more fruity, the other mulchy with truffle & mushroom. Each was a characterful wine in its own right, different faces of the aging process.
7. Domaine Philippe Cheron 2011 Tribourg Nuits-Saint-Georges
Côte de Nuits
The Wine Chambers
£32.99
13%. Obviously young with forceful tannins. Dark fruit, smoky and slightly spicy – a touch of syrupy richness. A complete, textured wine – precise, young but not unbalanced. In the glass it developed even more smoke and caramel.
8. Domaine Philippe Cheron 2011 Les Barreaux Vosne-Romanée
Côte de Nuits
The Wine Chambers
£44.99
13%. The wine was metallic with a peppery nose and a good tannic structure - it didn’t come across as 33% new oak. A too-young, fruity wine, but very refreshing even now as a drink and a suggestion of a very, very long finish. The Nuits Saint George paled in comparison.
