Jane’s “Monopole” - just across the road from Montrachet. 0.25 hectares of v low yielding (20hl/ha) 90-year old biodynamic Pinot Noir vines in middle of a vineyard otherwise devoted to Chardonnay. Jane used 40% whole bunches but cuts the stalk out as much as possible to avoid overly vegetal, woody characters. Intensely inky, small berries, blue fruit and white stone dust aromas. Real intensity and concentration, a vestigial vitality, like a sprightly geriatric dancing at a wedding, savoury, herbal and with impressive grip and substance. She made 900 bottles – and we have 60 of them. Sadly this is the last vintage for the foreseeable future as the grower has decided to keep all the fruit from 2020 onwards so don’t miss the chance to own the last and best vintage of this “future unicorn”.

It’s always a pleasure to see Jane – her wines are never less than extremely personable and engaging and 2019 is no exception. On arrival we learned she had just received a second star from the RVF (equivalent of the Michelin Guide for wine) – which is justly deserved. Jane suggests her 19s are styled nearer to the bigger 18s than the lighter 17s but with higher acid levels and thus are potentially longer lived.
Tom, Wine Guru

"Second vintage of her Les Bondues, a small island of Pinot Noir in the middle of an ocean of Chardonnay. A 90-year-old biodynamically farmed, chalky vineyard that Eyre is the only one to vinify in red. 40% whole bunch, one-third new oak. 700 bottles and 30 magnums made. Relatively deep crimson for a Jane Eyre wine. Very intense nose and really racy. Chiselled texture and you can really see the relationship with white wines! A really very fine, exciting and distinctive wine indeed. Firm with a fascinating, savoury undertow. Very fine indeed. Not remotely like the thin red Chassagnes that have been a little more common. Long. Possibly GV?" 17 pts, Jancis Robinson

"Three barrels, one new, produced from 90 year old vines. Really deep purple black. A deeply satisfying dark fruit mouthful, hearty blackberry with some blueberry, yet staying fresh enough, filling out the back palate very well. Tasted: October 2020"
90-93 pts, Jasper Morris MW
