Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2020 - 92

The wine has a deep violet colour and charming black cherry fruit with an edge of mint. The texture is lively and fresh, but round enough to enjoy in its youth. This is made from grapes purchased from the region of the Côtes du Couchois, south of Santenay. The fruit is completely destemmed and fermented on native yeasts. Unlike the domaine wines it is not certified organic. No sulphur is added until after malolactic.

Santenay Clos du Clos Gênet 2020 - 92

Slows a ripe plummy fruit character, with a slightly earthy cast. The texture is round, fleshy and enjoyable in its youth. Clos Gênet is a lieu-dit of just over 8ha south of the village od Santenay. Within it lies a walled clos, thus Clos du Clos Gênet.

Pommard 2020 - 93

A velvety wine, wine blackberry fruit, a hint of smoke and spice. This is lovely and expressive, with nothing aggressive or hot. This is partly from purchased fruit blended with estate fruit. The vines are in the village-level lieu-dit La Combotte above Rugiens, blended with grapes from the plain on the other side of the village. The fruit is destemmed and gently extracted.

Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Les Ecussaux 2020 - 94

Cassis-scented, with a smoky, slightly rustic edge. The texture is rich and somewhat grippy, but there is good depth of flavour here and a pleasantly lingering finish. This 0.41ha parcel faces southeast, up the slope from the stream that runs through the village. The fruit is destemmed and fermented after a short and cold soak.

Volnay 1er Cru Les Brouillards 2020 - 94

Lovely raspberry and blackberry fruit, with a hint of mint, a suggestion of flowers and a note of reduction. The texture is surprinsingly plump and round, and the wine lingers attractively on the finish. This 0.26ha domaine-owned parcel is more than 50 years of age. The fruit was picked ripe, then fermented with 30% whole clusters after a five-day cold soak. Ageing is done in 25% new casks.

Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières 2020 - 95

The wine has impressive ripeness, with a rich plum fruit and an earthy edge. There is a lovely intensity on the palate, which shows a concentrated extract, fresh acidity and firmish tannins, giving the wine good complexity and lead to a lingering finish. Jessiaume has almost a quarter of the vines in this preeminent premier cru of Santenay, right under the iconic windmill. Just over 4ha are planted to Pinot on the oolitic limestone soils. Picking started on the 23rd of August, the grapes were destemmend and fermented on native yeats before ageing in cask (20% new).

Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières Numerus Clausus 2020 - 96

Ripe black plum fruit, with engagingly earthy notes on the nose and a pleasantly brambly edge. There is impressive richness and depth here, with frim tannins and plenty of extract - no one in search of value should overlook this serious wine. Jessiaume owns 5.5ha of Gravières, one of the best premier crus in Santenay. From the 2020 vintage, they are making an old-vine selection of 80-year-old vines done exclusively with vines planted using massale selection.

Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières BLANC 2020 - 93

Strinkingly similar to a Chassagne, with ripe pear fruit and a suggestion of acacia flowers, within a silky and fine texture. Jessiaume has 0.77ha of Chardonnay in Graivères. The grapes are pressed as whole clusters and settled overnight before being run into cask (15% new) for fermentation and ageing.

Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Les Ecussaux BLANC 2020 - 93

Elegant, nuanced and delicious. The vines are planted at the point of the lieu-dit on south-facing slopes that look at the vineyards of Meursault. The result is a wine that resembles its neighbour - a bit riper than the fruit from Santenay, with more notes of butter and hazelnut. The grapes for this engaging wine were destemment but not crushed, and fermented without sulphur until bottling.
