*PRICES IN BOND* Awaiting reviews on 2019, however read 2018 review from Greg Sherwood, MW below:
Bourgogne Vieilles Vignes 2018, 14.5 Abv - Wine Safari Score: 91/100 Greg Sherwood MW
We were first introduced to Bruno Desaunay 15 years ago and were astounded by just how good his wines were. Precise, packed with fruit, he and his father in law look for non interventionist pure styles. They have exquisite parcels of old vine Pinot which people fight for year after year.
This is a Grower who has now caught the limelight. We are delighted for Bruno that several journalists have taken his wines to their heart - but this is now forcing us to allocate some of the wines.
Bruno's Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin have to be some of the best value wines of the vintage and the Echezeaux and Grands-Echezeaux never fail to impress.
Greg Sherwood, MW on the Grands-Echezeaux 2018: "Quality comes at a price and this is certainly worthy of top echelon Grand Cru Burgundy status." - 96/100 points

William Keeley at Robertparker.com: "This was my first encounter with the wines of Bruno Desaunay-Bissey which exploits an interesting portfolio of old-vine parcels and avoids excesses of new oak and extraction. The wines are very true to their appellations, with creamy old vine concentration, an excellent balance. A visit here will be high on my agenda during my next visit to Burgundy." From his visit in 2018.
Magnums are available at a minimal surcharge but please email for these – they are available in cases of 3.
Allocations are small for the 2019 vintage - even tinier for the Grand Cru's - so please do not delay to get on the allocation list and stay on it every year as this Domaine that we have championed for many years and has now fully fledged.
