Philippe Jouan took over from his dad in 2004 and continues the family tradition of exquisite, handcrafted Burgundy with no expense spared. Difficult to understand how they can be, for Morey, so modestly priced. Ripe cherry, cinnamon, violet spice.
"Cherry, cinnamon, rose petal, violets, orange rind and dark chocolate, hints of savory bass notes"
William Kelley Wine Advocate for 2015
This fine, fourth generation estate was founded by Philippe Jouan’s great grandfather. He was a barrel maker with a few vines alongside. Even today, they own only 3 hectares of vines and manage another 1.5 hectares, but all in beautifully positioned plots. As a consequence, their wines are hugely difficult to get hold of and reservations have to be made long in advance. They’ve been suppliers to Drouhin for 50 years too, a fact they are proud of. This glorious Premier Cru takes grapes from two 80-year-old parcels of vines within Clos Sorbé. Careful tending, natural treatments and gentle handling in the cellar result in a fine silky texture, wafts of complex aromas and a divine palate of cherry, berry, cinnamon, mocha and more earthy notes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
