From his parcel of Grand Maupertui, high up and in the middle of the vineyard and next to the vines of Anne Gros, this again shows a certain reserve; red apple, redcurrant and cranberry fruits need time in bottle to evolve. Their concentration is massive without being explosive. A touch of dusty sandalwood and coconut from the wood adds to the sturdy acids and tannins that give great ageing potential. Sleek and powerful. 2022 to 2034.
Producer Information: Domaine Jean-Marc Millot
Small growers have moved from selling in bulk to bottling at home since Michel Lafarge's grandfather first bottled Passetoutgrains in the 1920s. Jean-Marc took over the family farm and moved to bottling and selling under his name throughout the 1990s. With important holdings in Echezeaux, and the bets bit of Clos Vougeot, his wines have become highly sought after. One of our favourites is the red Savigny, carefully made from vines inherited from his Uncle. He has recently passed the baton on to his daughter Alix.
