Exceptional. I can’t get over how hedonistic this is. Extraordinary nose. Cherry. No filtration in this vintage so good body and chewiness. Good length. Pinot Noir from Burgundy of this quality at this price is so rare. It's joyful and full, and classy, with a lovely hint of oak. It comes from vineyards that were famous in the 19th century that were forgotting and have now been re-planted.


Tasting Notes

The Grande Reserve vineyard is located on the western side of Chablis, toward Auxerre. The chalky slopes are very similar to the famous Montee de Tonnerre. This is an smartly made Pinot Noir from an excellent terroir, with a good fruit expression, concentrated, ripe and smoky, pyrazine smell with oak-derived spice and black berry fruit.


Press Note:

"Energy, nice texture, lots of concentration, a really good wine" - Burgundy-Report


Robin's Note:

In contrast to some pretty antique winemaking families, Mauperthuis is one of the younger producers in the Chablis region. Founded by Laurent Ternynck as a modest garagiste-type enterprise in 1992, the domaine’s wines have become firm favourites with Burgundy lovers around the world. The domaine itself is based in the village of Massangis, a short drive south of Chablis while cellar is on the Grande Rue de Chablis. In charge of winemaking is Stéphane Saillet. After gaining valuable experience with Domaine Zind-Humbrecht in Alsace and Domaine Viret in the Rhône Valley, as well as enjoying a spell making wine in Niagara, Canada, Stéphane settled in Chablis, starting at Domaine Mauperthuis in 2014. Stéphane’s takes a ‘less is more’ approach to winemaking: fermentation is with indigenous yeasts and no oenological products are used except a little sulphur after racking and at bottling. Oak use is judicious, with barrels sourced from 10 different coopers and new oak generally kept to not more than 10% of the final blend for Grand Reserve wines.
