We were first introduced to Bruno Desaunay over 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.
“A true star on the rise.” Greg Sherwood, MW
"....when you discover a ‘new’ producer making such unbelievably fine wines, you are almost inclined to keep the secret to yourself, such was the excitement. Desaunay-Bissey is undoubtedly heading towards greatness and within a very short period of time, his wines will be among the most allocated and sought -after in the Cotes de Nuits.” Greg Sherwood, MW
William Kelley 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."
While the wines remain great value for money, they are now coming to widespread notice, and since 2018 have needed to be allocated. As a result, Desaunay-Bissey’s Vosne-Romanée Beaux Mont Premier Cru and his Echezeaux and Grands Echezeaux are offered as a parcel only. Other wines may be freely ordered.
All these wines are in bond prices.
If you wish to buy wine in bond with us, we are happy to transfer into a bond of your choice if you do not store with us.
