This wine was lovingly made by Michel Esmonin in 1996. Astonishingly fresh and still full of dark fruit aromas including cassis, plum and raspberry. The wine has matured beautifully, with soft silky discreet tannins and an earthy mineral character.
A great example of how great Burgundy can age and a credit to Michel, Sylvie and the Domaine!
A bit of history…..
Sylvie’s grandfather worked for the Comte de Moucheron, former sole owners of the great Clos St Jacques vineyard. When the Comte had to sell up, he bought a portion of the vineyard along with his house. Michel Esmonin, Sylvie’s father, helped to develop the domaine, but sold the wines mostly in bulk. Sylvie came back to help her father on the condition that everything was bottled at the domaine, and she is now in sole charge.
