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.

From two parcels - En Champ, a lieu dit next to 1er cru Champeaux, and Combe Dessus, both on the northern side of the village. Only seven barrels this year (one new) and 30% whole bunch.

Red cherries and strawberries, plus cherry tobacco, and charry, maritime notes with a whiff of sandalwood and tapenade. The complex and yielding nose segues to a salty, tight cherry palate, with really good energy and precision, clearly holding plenty in reserve. There is no fat here but loads of concentration. Fine, fresh and long, this is benchmark for the vintage. I can’t recall tasting better from Jane. Tom, Wine Guru

"From two good vineyards, one by the Château, along with En Champs. 30% whole bunch, one third new wood. Fine imperial purple colour and like the Savigny this has a rousing charm-laden bouquet, suggesting a fine boned wine before the palate delivers more weight. Just the right tannins, with a long elegant finish." Tasted: October 2021 89-91, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
