Melbourne-born Jane Eyre-Renard, one of the pioneers of the growing micro-negotiant movement, has been based in Burgundy since 2003, paying her dues at some top domaines including de Montille and Comtes Lafon. She currently makes her own wines in a facility in Bligny-le-Beaune, shared with, among others, Dominique Lafon. Her wines, whether from Beaune, Nuits, or Beaujolais, display her distinctive style - charming and inviting, with supple tannins and soft but bright fruits. Gentle extraction and judicious use of new oak means these have been among the more immediately appealing Burgundies in our portfolio. The 2018 vintage however has clearly stamped its imprint over Jane’s wines as there is greater power, deeper fruit and gravitas allied to the usual charm and definition. Her decision to include 30% whole bunches (as opposed to none last year) has given the wines extra depth and complexity to balance the ripe fruit. Meanwhile her preference for early bottling, important in a vintage like 2018 to preserve freshness and prevent the fruit drying out, still means the range is pretty accessible, but it is definitely serious. Jane says “ultimately vintage and vineyard should trump your winemaking” but in 2018 all three elements have combined to create something rather special.

Jane’s “Monopole”, just across the road from Montrachet, with 90-year old Pinot vines in middle of vineyard (she only made 900 bots). Deep, red and blue fruits on the nose which is concentrated, polished, with earthy, ferrous notes. The old vine character comes through on the palate which is heavy with stones and salinity, alongside bright red fruits finishing long, with generous but refined, chalky tannins. Tom, Wine Guru

A new contract making 4 barrels from 90 year old vines farmed biodynamically, tiny bunches. Dense glowing purple, with high class fruit on the nose, excellent natural acidity, with a whole mix of deep red fruit and some blueberry notes. Lovely follow through. Welcome to another really fine red Chassagne! 90-93/100, Jasper Morris

91/100, Tim Atkin MW
