Gorgeous Premier Cru Savigny from a magnificent vintage and this outstanding, biodynamic, family estate. Old vines on the superb Les Marconnets terroir – iron-rich, sandy and pebbly – produce power, finesse and intensity. A joy in youth, or cellar.
"Slightly rustic, damp earthy bouquet, silky smooth in texture with a mixture of red and blue fruit"
Neal Martin Wine Advocate
Vougeraie is the superb Boisset family estate. In 1961 Jean-Claude Boisset purchased Gevrey’s Les Evocelles, and since then they’ve added vineyards across 36 appellations, covering 42 hectares of premium land. They brought the vineyards together in one estate in 1999 to make Domaine de la Vougeraie. Large for Burgundy, but there’s no compromise in quality. Every plot is managed organically and biodynamically for a purer expression of the vines’ terroir. Les Marconnets is a splendidly situated vineyard on the Beaune side of the steep hill, with iron-rich, pebble and sandy soils. These suit Vougeraie’s old vines that produce tiny yields (25hl/ha). Ageing in French oak lends a spice edge to this fine red. Enjoy with duck or mushroom dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
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
