Jean-Philippe Fichet is very excited with his 2013s, which he picked before the weekend of bad weather. He has also refined his techniques in the cellar, pressing the grapes for longer and settling out the juice less than before; both methods aimed at enhancing the vineyard character of each plot and making less ‘technical’ wines. A lovely range.

Jean-Philippe’s best vineyards were the most affected by the hail this year, whereas the Bourgogne Blanc vineyards suffered the least. The crop in the single vineyard wines is down by 50-75%, however Jean-Philippe reports very healthy grapes though and an impeccable balance between sugar levels and acidity. Jean-Philippe’s style is to retain a healthy thread of crisp minerality in his wines.

Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau started picking early on 17th September in 2010, continuing over the following nine days as the vineyards ripened. His wines maintain their traditional status as excellent value for money, while the move to his new cellars two years ago has improved the consistency of the range and purity too. The aromatics of this 2010 vintage remind Jean-Baptiste of 2002, but perhaps with greater flesh.
