No relation to the Côte de Nuits Magniens, young Sébastien comes instead from Meloisey in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune – a village whose wines were as well thought of as those of Volnay in the 14th century, and were served at the coronation of King Philip II Augustus in 1180. However to be in the thick of things Sébastien has transferred headquarters to revamped cellars in the middle of Meursault. White wines come from the Hautes Côtes, St Romain and Meursault, the red wines from Volnay, Pommard and the Hautes Côtes including an excellent Clos des Perrières from Meloisey.

Sébastien picked his white wines at the end of September then waited a week for the reds to finish ripening. In both cases the grapes remained in healthy condition. Clearly his 2013s are his best yet in white and very good indeed in red. Take this opportunity to discover a really promising young grower who is still ‘under the radar’.

Young Sébastien made an interesting comment while we tasted: “My training as an oenologist has persuaded me to work even harder in the vines”. This is becoming a very impressive address, even if the appellations are not the grandest. The whites are now in tank, awaiting bottling in the early spring. The reds receive longish macerations with not much punching down and a maximum of 25% new wood. Don’t let your eyes slide straight on to more established names before taking a good look at these, from the cracking Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Clos de la Perrière upwards. Across the cellar the yield in 2012 was a meagre 26 hl/ha.
