Jane Eyre

Melbourne-born Jane Eyre-Renard, one of the pioneers of the growing micro-negotiant movement, continues her inexorable rise to stardom.

Based in Burgundy since 2003, she has paid her dues at some top domaines including de Montille and Comtes Lafon and still assists the winemaking at Domaine Newman, whilst making her own wines in a facility shared with 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 oaking, and early bottling means these are among the more immediately accessible Burgundies in our portfolio.

It’s always a pleasure to see Jane – her wines are never less than extremely personable and engaging and 2019 is no exception. On arrival we learned she had just received a second star from the RVF (equivalent of the Michelin Guide for wine) – which is justly deserved. Jane suggests her 19s are styled nearer to the bigger 18s than the lighter 17s but with higher acid levels and thus are potentially longer lived. Right out of the gate the Cote de Nuits Villages really soars and I really loved her “monopole” - the old vine biodynamic red Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru “Les Bondues” which unfortunately she will no longer have the contract to work from 2020 so be sure to get this unicorn when you can. The Gevrey 1er Cru Corbeaux is another standout and Jane’s plot buts right up next to Mazi-Chambertin Grand Cru. It was also brilliant to taste her Charmes Chambertin – which Nathan and I tasted last year, fresh off the vines, and loved so much we offered to crowdfund the barrel – and thanks to the generosity of Honest Grapes’s club members – we did! Watch out for more crowd-funded barrel projects like this in 2021...
