Jane Eyre Côtes de Nuits Villages
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.Right out of the gate the Cote de Nuits Villages really soars and I really loved her “monopole” - the old vine biodynamic red Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru “Les Bondues” which unfortunately she will no longer have the contract to work from 2020 so be sure to get this unicorn when you can. The Gevrey 1er Cru Corbeaux is another standout and Jane’s plot buts right up next to Mazi-Chambertin Grand Cru. It was also brilliant to taste her Charmes Chambertin – which Nathan and I tasted last year, fresh off the vines, and loved so much we offered to crowdfund the barrel – and thanks to the generosity of Honest Grapes’s club members – we did! Watch out for more crowd-funded barrel projects like this in 2021... Tom, Wine Guru
"A blend of two parcels located halfway up the hillside in Comblanchien that Eyre has been producing since 2014. This year, the quality of the grapes allowed her to vinify with 40% whole bunch. 2,500 bottles and 250 magnums. Voluptuous wine that will surely win friends, especially if sensibly priced. Beautiful freshness but not aggressive whole-bunch character. Lots of seductive (but not too sweet) fruit here. Positively velvety. " 16.5 pts, Jancis Robinson
"Bottled in August, from Corgoloin and Comblanchien. Ask Jane the full name of the Corgoloin vineyard next time you see her. Mid purple with a lifted bright ripe cherry fruit, really successful integration of some whole bunches into some naturally classy fruit. 10% new oak, mostly 300 litre barrels. Filtered for bacterial stability. Long finish, very charming. Tasted: October 2020" 5 stars, 90 pts, Jasper Morris MW
