 A succulent raspberry fruit-laden Burgundy with excellent weight and depth. Drink now or by 2020.

Xavier Durand has an infectious sense of humour but is also an immensely talented wine-maker and a visit to his labyrinthine cellars cut into the Comblanchien rock (Comblanchien is renowned for its rose-coloured marble as well as its wines!) is always something we look forward to.

This is the heartland of the Côte de Nuits Villages appellation (there are only 30-odd growers in the AOC) and the Durands’ villages wines see 15% new oak and are always of Nuits St. Georges quality, combining an open, flamboyant fruitiness with ripe, integrated tannins.
