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.

"from plots at the top and bottom of this famous vineyard, where the deep marl soils in the latter are of a similar composition to neighbouring ‘Referts’ in Puligny Montrachet Nose immediately offers hazelnut praline alongside sweet pear and white stone fruit, some nutmeg salted caramel complete the exotic melange. The attacks balances sweetness and focus, the mid-palate succulent and opulent, but rounded out by smoky mandarin citrus alongside the riper yellow plums, and there is ample acidity underneath and salted caramel on the finish."


Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"Clear mid lemon yellow. A little barrel coconut but the fruit pushes through this, quite impressively. This is burly, perhaps a mite powerful but I think it will come together, remembering that it has just been bottled. A fine chiselled finish. Power and length. 13.8%" Tasted: December 2021 94, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
