For a sandy vineyard, there’s no sign of stress in this wine. There’s a remarkable level of minerality and tension. It turns out that this has had the full nuages treatment. The result is exceptional, with a completely different tannin profile. The wine has focus, energy and, though full of Savigny red fruit, it’s at a different level. Drink 2024-2035.

Critics reviews

Jasper Morris MW87-90/100
100% decorticated (see intro for explanation). Black purple. Hyper-ethereal bouquet says Jean-Pierre, I find it just rather heavy – at first! I love however the sensuality which develops, not too whole bunch and there are waves and waves of flavour, before this goes into a treacly black fruit. He thinks finesse and the fine touch of the tannins and is probably right, but I don’t want this amount of ripeness in the fruit profile. It is either a two star or a four star wine really.

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy (January 2022) Read more
A subtle but perceptible dollop of wood sets off the floral, spice and very pretty array of red and dark cherry, anise and soft earth. There is fine richness and more volume to the seductively textured and caressing flavors that possess good balance and persistence. This could use more depth but it’s already quite pretty plus it’s a wine that should be approachable young if desired.

Aromas of plums, wild berries, warm spices and cherries preface the 2020 Chorey-lès-Beaune Les Bons Ores, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy wine that's textural and giving, with a deep core of fruit and ripe, powdery tannins.

About this WINE

Domaine Guyon

Domaine Guyon

The excellent Domaine Guyon in Vosne Romanée has been below most people’s radar – perhaps because Jean-Pierre Guyon spends as much of his time as possible out in the vineyards, which have been farmed organically since 2006, certified from 2012.  This is a hugely exciting addition to the Berry Bros. & Rudd range, the wines wowed Jasper Morris MW when he first discovered them.  The wines are extraordinarily good, yet are priced very sensibly indeed, a winning combination.

With his high pedigree viticulture as a great starting point, Jean-Pierre can employ whole bunch fermentation as the stalks are ripe, eschewing the use of sulphur at this stage (though some is added later during elevage and at bottling to assure stability). Another point of Guyon’s meticulous care is the use of a vertical press before the juice goes to barrel for 12 months, before racking into older wood for a final six months maturation.

This range of wines is hugely impressive, from the simple Bourgogne Rouge up to the Grand Crus. Finding high quality Vosne Romanée at this pricing level is a rare thing indeed.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
