I share some of my best bottles with Philip Tuck who has a great appreciation of wine, especially Burgundy. He works for Hatch Mansfield who represent Louis Jadot in the UK and supplied the first of the wines below.
Corton Charlemagne 1996 (Louis Jadot)*****
Fine, lemon-gold colour; taut, minerally, quite powerful, very fine balance and fresh acidity, lemon butter flavours, restrained, beautifully integrated with perfect poise and finesee. Still remarkably fresh and taut after nearly 13 years. 19.5
Chambertin Clos de Beze 1995 (Armand Rousseau) ****/*****
