Jean-Claude Boisset was radically transformed with the arrival in 2002 of viniculteur Grégory Patriat, one of the best viticulturalists/winemakers of his generation in Burgundy. Grégory had spent the previous three years working in the vineyards at Domaine Leroy and still spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, paying his growers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. Unlike other Burgundian négociants, Grégory specialises in making wines from 'lieu-dits' or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines. Tasting Notes: Garnet in colour with hints of purple, the nose exhibits complex aromas of blackberries, violets, spice and toasty notes. On the palate, it has a lovely mouthfeel, while still fresh and delicately scented, with more pronounced tannins evident on the long, structured finish. GOLD MEDAL - IWC Awards 2018.
