Griottes Chambertin Grand Cru Cote de NuitsThe aromas of Griotte-Chambertin are complex and unusually subtle for a good French Wine. Hints of cherry brandy and preserved cherry have been discerned, with suggestions of leather and a pinch of nutmeg. When more mature there are also the aromas of truffle and animal scents. 

The French describe this smell as 'gamey' because it is reminiscent of well-hung game. Tannin is clearly apparent yet muted, which combined with a high level of alcohol by volume, ensure a velvet soft, al most caressing wine. The sensations of the nose are echoed in the taste although Jess pronounced and accompanied by the elegant hint of wood. A good Griotte-Chambertin has remarkable style, richness, and complexity.



This rare French wine from Chambertin is both powerful and supple, well structured, complex, yet elegant and subtle.



This is an elegant and charming red French wine with average structure, not especially complex or powerful but certainly very fruity. It should not be kept too long.



Although somewhat overlooked among the great character wines of Chambertin and the delicate sed ucers of Chambolle-Musigny, the wine of Morey­ St-Denis is worthy of greater recognition. It possesses a very clear red colouring, fruity nose (morello cherry) with hints of-wood, herbs, spices, fungus, and leather, and has a fulsome, soft as velvet, and very balanced taste. Furthermore this French wine is suitable for keeping for a long time. Specially recommended: the Premier.Cru 'Les Ruchots'.



Griottes Chambertin Grand Cru Cote de NuitsThe French wine is a very dark ruby colour. The aroma recalls black cherry and sometimes a hint of animal scents such as musk. The suggestion of cedarwood cigar box is almost always present. It is a big but harmonious wine with plenty of tannin yet retains a velvety-soft texture. The French wine continues to 'breathe' in the mouth for some time.



This French wine is a fine ruby colow• with the suggestion of a tinge of granite. It has a surprising and complex nose in which blackcurrant, blackberry, prune, occasionally musk, herbs, spices, coffee, but also sometimes violets or other flowers can be discerned.



This French wine is somewhat modest and overlooked. It is a classic fruity Burgundy with suggestions of black cherry and hints of floral and animal aromas such as leather and musk. This is a full-bodied, rounded wine of some style.

Chambertin Grand CruThis is one of the best French wines from Burgundy but also one of the most difficult wines to make because of the vagaries of its microclimate. The colour is clear, pure, and intensely dark ruby red.  A young Chambertin smells of black cherry, and sometimes of bitter chocolate. Suggestions of the flavour of liquorice, truffle, and mould can be detected after several years maturation which after a further period of maturity has a tendency towards leather and animal scents, combined  with the aromas of preserved fruits. This French wine is strong in tannin but this harmonises well with the rounded, full, almost fat taste of the wine and its elegant, refined acidity. The taste is reminiscent of ripe fruit and tends towards black cherry jam with the suggestion of liquorice.



This French wine has been famous since the seventh century. It is a superb, and intensely dark red in colour with the scent of raspberry, suggestions of wood, and spices, and occasionally of roasted almonds. The taste is full and powerful, fatty, and well structured. This is certainly a wine to lay down.



Chambertin Grand CruThis French wine is slightly less well structured and full than a Chambertin Clos-de-Beze. There can be a hint of spiced loaf in the scent with the occasional suggestion of marmalade. This is still though a very elegant wine.



This French wine is full-bodied, complex, and very well structured. Here too there are suggestions of spiced bread and orange. This is a superb wine which remains supple and velvety smooth despite its intrinsic power.



This French wine has a wonderful colour, seducing perfume of strawberry, black cherry, and raspberry, with the occasional hint of apricot stone, lime blossom, or liquorice. Wood can sometimes dominate too much, especially in the nose of immature wine.

The fruitiness is released when the wine is swirled around the glass for a time. The aftertaste is a true experience: preserved fruits such as cherry, exotic wood, herbs, and spices. This is a classic and complex French wine that retains sufficient fruitiness to remain charming. This wine should certainly not be drunk too warm (max. 64.4°F/18°C).



This is a very fresh and fruity white French wine.


This is a fruity red wine that can be high in tannin. There is also a rose French Wine.

The French red wine is somewhat heavy and rough when young but after several years ageing it becomes gentler, more rounded, and plump, with the aroma of red fruit, in particular cherry, blackcurrant, and redcurrant, with the occasional hint of prune, liquorice, cocoa, or coffee.

The best known wine is the Rosé de Marsannay. This French wine is pale pink with some orange. The smell is fresh and pleasant while the taste is reminiscent of red fruit. The white French wine is very fresh, full-bodied, and impetuous but more supple and rounded when mature. The wine is intensely coloured, has a characteristic Chardonnay scent with exotic fruit, such as pineapple and grapefruit, and a big taste.



Fixin is best known for its red French wines. This is usually a fleshy, powerful wine with quite a lot of tannin when young which enables it to be kept. When young the wine is ruby red and has the nose of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry. When mature the scent is of plum or even leather.



Cotes de Nuits Wine LabelThis French wine is an attractive ruby red that is pure and clear. The characteristlc aromas are of black cherry, blackberry, and other small fruit, with an occasional hint of liquorice.

It acquires a bouquet of spices, including nutmeg, and leather through maturing in oak which takes on earthy tones, bushes, wet leaves, and toadstools when it has reached a respectable age.

This French wine is high in tannin but not so that it disturbs the taste, in part because of the fullness of the French wine. The taste is very full and fruity. The wine can be kept for 10-20 years after its harvest. The Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Cazetiers is highly recommended.


Chablis Premier CruThis light, fruity and fresh tasting French wine is drunk young. True Chablis can be laid down for maturing but is also very enjoyable in its first year. This French wine is fully matured after three years.

A Premier Cru Chablis is golden with a definite tinge of green. The nose is fruity but above all vegetal : lemon balm, fern, and the suggestion of coriander. The taste is dry and reminiscent of chalk with a touch of iodine. Known Premier Crus are: Mont de Milieu, Tonnere, Sechet, Montee de Fourchaume, Montmains,Vaillons.



Chablis Grand Cru French wineThese French wines need to be laid down for at least five years after bottling and can certainly be left for twenty years. These are rare French wines, very dry, with a good balance between strength and finesse. The colour is a very clean pale yellow with the minimum of green tinge.

The nose tends towards fern and coriander with the occasional suggestion of preserved citrus fruit. The chalk soil is readily discovered in the flavour, with a pronounced undertone of iodine.

The preserved citrus fruits put in a further appearance in the aftertaste. There are seven Grand Cru wines: Vaudesir, Les Preuses, Les Clos, Grenouilles, Bougros, Valmur, and Blanchots.
