Domaine du Colombier – www.domaineducolombier.fr
A family estate that has been producing Chablis wines for several generations. The ability of wines to express a real identity with fruity and minerality delight importers and restaurateurs alike and this … at reasonable rates!
Taste the range of wines of the Mother brothers and be impressed by the irreproachable quality price ratio of their whole offering !
Domaine Ghislain Kohut
Ghislain is part of the new generation of winemakers who have helped grow the appellation by the quality of wines produced. The particularity of Ghislain wines lies in the fact that it wants to be able to offer wines that can start to be appreciated as soon as they are released on the market. This is refreshing when we start to see way too young Burgundy wines on restaurant tables. The wines are kept until 24 months for better integration between fruits and élevage. Whether white or red the wines are precise. Les Genelières wines display delicate notes whilst Les Champs Perdrix are more serious but all the wines reveal the complexity of their sites.
Domaine Henri Magnien – www.henrimagnien.com
Charles Magnien took over in 1999, bringing to the Domaine an incredible momentum which means that today, we can not talk about Gevrey serious producers without counting on the wines of Charles. Viticulture has been part of the Magnien family since the beginning of the 18th century and the Magniens have over the decades acquired plots on most renowned climats. Whether on the Lavaux St Jacques, Estournelles St Jacques, Cazetiers, Champeaux, and Ruchottes (the only producer with vines on both Haut and Bas Ruchottes), the wines of the domain are nowadays increasingly sought after. From the limited produced Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Moutiers to the Villages all the way to the Cru Charles wines are making their marks are indisputably part of the top league.
Domaine Alain Michelot – www.alainmichelot.com
Located right in the heart of the appellation, this family domain has been aptly run by Elodie Michelot for over two decades. Elodie represents the fourth generation. The vineyards spread over 7ha in Nuits-Saint-Georges and the family also owns just half a hectare in Morey Saint Denis. Since 2010, Elodie and his team have also been entrusted to look after a parcel and make wines from a most suitably located plot in Clos Vougeot. The style of the wines is a nice contrast to what the appelation has tended to offer over the last decades. With half the holdings in 1er Cru, the wines display all the attributes from such respected Climats and reflect their origins yet with grace and an quintessential harmony between fruits and structure. The tanins are beautifully integrated and the wines beautifully textured.
Domaine Rémi Jeanniard
A family estate of 6ha held by Rémi and his wife Maryse. After a stint working at Domaine Ponsot Rémi decided to concentrate on the family domain, making wines that reflect his personality ; discreet but certainly not lacking in self-confidence. Staying away from easy consensus the wines here are naturally elegant yet far from being fragile. The Ruchots are south of the appellation going towards Chambolled with vines nicely situated between the Clos de Tart and Les Bonnes Mares. The Ormes are further north when heading towards Gevrey.
Maison JanotBos – www.janotsbos.eu
Thierry Janots is French and Richard Bos Dutch. They knew each other during their oenology study in Beaune in the 1990s, and decided to create their JanotsBos négoce in 2005. Thierry has been able to use his years as an winemaker in some of the top notch domains of the Côte de Beaune, while Richard (also a traiend winemaker) supervises their contract growers ensuring the work in the vineyards is done as per their strict quality standard. The wines have in the last few years displayed a greater fruit precision and personality
Domaine Jacques Carillon – www.jacques-carillon.com
The Carillons are winemakers in Puligny Montrachet since the 16th century. The domain is widely respected and sought after for the pristine minerality and sincerity of the wines produced by Jacques Carillon. The wines, far from being demonstrative, nevertheless demonstrate their mineral intensity, the richness of the great terroirs and the accuracy of a minimalist winemaking intervention. All the wines produced come from the family vineyards of Jacques and his wife Sylvia.
Domaine Roche Guillon – www.rocheguillon.coperet.pagesperso-orange.fr
A family estate in the heart of Cru Fleurie, which produces Beaujolais wines very attractive and exquisitely Gamay. The Gamay is here taken very seriously by Bruno and Valérie Coperet who represents the fourth generation to exploit their 9 hectares of vines. The wines produced Beaujolais Villages, Fleurie and Morgon present an uncompromising style where the Gamay can express itself with accuracy.
Domaine des Nugues – www.domainedesnugues.com
A different style of Beaujolais wines with a longer aging that allows to offer a more savoury style to this Cru. The domain also produces a white Beaujolais Villages that is a huge hit with sommeliers and consumers alike. White Beaujolais is rather a rarity in the appellation but in the hands of Giles Gelin, a Chardonnay that has nothing to be shy about and one that can easily compete with the Chardonnays of their neighbors further north.
