Laurent set about to catapult these wines into the stratosphere and after sweeping up at the IWC 2020 awards for their incredible 2019s, one could argue, they may have reached space itself! They were in fact the biggest winner at the awards, picking up 8 trophies, Red Winemaker of the Year (for the wonderful Christophe Briotet), as well as 15 gold, 30 silver and 7 bronze medals. Safe to say, club members lapped up last year’s allocations and the staff too have been enjoying Laurent’s wines throughout the year. It is with great pleasure therefore that I can offer these brilliant wines. Best vintage yet? We certainly wouldn’t bet against it…


Every cuvée is treated individually, without a set formula for quantity of new oak, or amount of whole bunches used, which allows each wine to offer a true and deeply satisfying expression of the individual terroirs and vintage. What we have is absolutely everything we love about Burgundy. A real sense of place.

"A blend of two barrels - one from Mazoyeres with vines between 15 and 50 years giving a darker, wild richness to the wines, the other from 80 year old vines in Charmes itself giving sweeter succulence, and precision. One of the barrels used is new.

Sweet ripe raspberry and chocolate truffle nose, with parma violets, peonies and rosewater floral notes.

Fresh and focussed attack, nicely-poised, with well-integrated acidity, bright, crunchy, lightly peppery mid-palate with concentrated cranberry and red cherries. Very sleek and classy, carrying no extra weight, its shows off energy rather than mass."

Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"From both Charmes- and Mazoyères-Chambertin, with more the former. Heady deep purple with a bouquet to match. Sweet voluptuous fruit, on the darker side, with a weight of fruit and a little bit of heat at the finish. Not quite so well balanced as the Clos Vougeot." Tasted: December 2021 92-95, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
