Last year we visited Jane in her former shared premises in Bligny, but 2021 has rung in the changes. As well as being awarded a second star by La Revue du Vin de France (a sort of Michelin equivalent for winemakers) and then winning their coveted ‘winemaker of the year’ (first woman and first foreigner to do so), Jane has now moved operations to new premises across and along from Volnay in Cissey. This should give her enough space to expand production and also host the growing number of admirers of her wines. We have a slightly more limited range to offer you from 2020 as several of her contracts were not renewed this year (including the Chassagne Montrachet and Santenay 1er Cru) and overall yields were down. However what is lacking in quantity is more than made up for in quality. Jane began the harvest on 27th August, later than some, but there is no lack of freshness or tension in the wines. They are certainly rich and definitely age-worthy, but still show her trademark supple tannins, perfumed fruit and approachability.

Jane made five barrels (one of which is new) and used 30% whole bunches in 2020.
More than the previous two vintages, despite the concentration in 2020, this has really lifted, pretty aromatics with an attractive floral perfume – fresh blooms and dried petals, and loads of bright red cherries.

Spicy and succulent attack, poised and fine, this dances along the palate balancing volume and length, with tobacco leaf and mocha notes around the raspberry core.

Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"One new 350 litre cask and 4 older 228 litre barrels. 30% whole bunch vinification. Very pretty mid purple. This is beautifully elegant on the nose, very lively and then with a firmer base to it, with some youthful astringency which soon fades into the background. Excellent potential here." Tasted: October 2021 89-90, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
