Maison de Partage


    Maison de Partage is a unique portfolio of wines carefully selected and sourced straight from the cellars of top producers in Burgundy, with impeccable provenance.

    Clos de la Roche

    In the 19th century, Clos de la Roche included only 5 hectares, but when the time came to classify the grand crus in 1936 it was decided to incorporate some surrounding areas, which brought the size of the vineyard up to 15 hectares. A quintessential example of Morey St. Denis, Clos de la Roche is a rich and full wine with a touch of earthiness. Its refined and complex character can be muscular, while also showing a feminine and lacy side to its personality.

    Latricieres Chambertin

    First distinguished in its own right in 1508, Latricieres Chambertin is a medium-sized grand cru vineyard in tightly held ownership – the name derives from Latin (poor, in the sense of infertile). Located directly to the south of Chambertin, the vineyard shares much of the same soil and subsoil – a white oolitic marl on a solid rock base, with very little surface earth. A young Latricieres shows a rich and pure fruit – sturdy and robust. With time in the cellar, notes of earth and black truffles will emerge.


    The first historical reference to Chambertin dates back to the 13th century, when Guillaume de Grancey exchanged some vines in Champ Bertin with the Abbey of Cluny in 1276. Together with Clos de Beze, these two grand cru vineyards form the heart of the Gevrey appellation. Chambertin is a dense, muscular wine with firm tannins in its youth that requires several years to integrate and develop its aromatic and flavor complexity – an austere and fleshy wine that emphasizes the darker fruit elements.

    Clos Vougeot

    Being one single vineyard, and having great importance in the history of viticulture in Burgundy, Clos Vougeot is classified as a grand cru. At the top and best part, where the vineyard borders Grands Echezeaux to the south and Musigny to the north, the soil is a pebbly, oolitic limestone. At its best, Clos Vougeot can rank among the greatest Burgundies, alongside Chambertin and the best of Vosne Romanee – broad shouldered, but layered with elegance and dimension; the aromatic complexity tends to show the darker-fruited, spicier characteristics of Pinot Noir.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes

    Chambolle Musigny produces the most delicate wines of the Cotes de Nuits – lighter in structure than Vosne Romanee or Gevrey Chambertin, yet equally intense and complex; showing the elegant perfume of Pinot Noir. The terroir is marked by a high percentage of active limestone, producing sturdy wines in the north and more ethereal examples where the land abuts Vougeot to the south.

    Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes

    Gevrey Chambertin is the largest of the great communes of the Cote de Nuits, containing nine out of the twenty-four grand crus. The wine is full and sturdy, rich and masculine, but also a touch fleshy and exotic. Sensual and vigorous, it is more flamboyant than Vosne Romanee and more substantial than Chambolle Musigny. There are twenty-six premier crus in Gevrey Chambertin – the wines from the northern sector are full, rich muscular and sometimes a bit burly. Those from the south are lighter, more fragrant and feminine.

    Vosne Romanee Vieilles Vignes

    Vosne Romanee is often praised as the brightest star of the Cote de Nuits, producing wines that are rich, austere, sensual, masculine and aromatic; balancing depth and richness with elegance and breed; often described as silky, they are usually marked by finesse and perfume which, together with their natural power, age beautifully.

    Chambertin 2001

    Spicy floral aromas display some secondary development on the layered dark fruits, cassis, earth and wet stone. Round and seductively textured flavors show a touch of warmth on the wonderfully persistent finish. A lovely example of the vintage that should prove to be impressively long-lived.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 1999

    Beginning to blossom, and offering quintessentially Chambolle aromas of rose petals, strawberries and fresh herbs, with a bit of woodsmoke and chalky soil tones. Medium-bodied, bright and intensely-flavored, with a juicy core of fruit, zesty acids and a long finish. This wine is already lovely and perfumed, and will no doubt continue to improve over the next ten years.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2000

    The vibrant bouquet exhibits a mix of black cherry, chocolate, minerals, roses and mustard seed. On the palate the wine is pure at the core, with a density and old vines complexity that leads to impressive length on the long and tangy finish. There is good intensity and fine persistence.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2001

    A very pretty reflection of the vintage, with strawberry, sassafras, rose petals and spice on the nose. Pure and concentrated, with ripe fruit flavors and beautifully tangy acids. A lovely wine that is already drinking very well now, and should continue to improve with further bottle age.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2003

    Elegant, ripe and pure spicy red and black fruit notes – wonderfully complex and precise. Middle-weight flavors on the palate gives lift and verve to the long finish. Ripe, yet retains a sense of freshness and finesse. A lovely, forward and accessible wine.

    Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2004

    The bouquet today offers notes of strawberries, spices, minerals and floral tones. On the palate the wine is medium-full and very transparent, with solid mid-core depth and a fine length on the finish. More here than meets the eye, and bound to be a lovely wine with some years in the cellar.

    Clos de la Roche 1996

    Vibrant fruit aromas of cherry, plums and an alluring note of cloves and spicy wood. On the palate the wine is medium-full, with great delineation and a rich mid-palate. The finish is long, very complex and tangy. A fine example of the vintage – still a few years away from peak maturity.

    Clos de la Roche 1997

    Notes of black cherries, beetroot and a bit of sous bois. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with moderate acids, grand cru depth and fine balance – there is a real sweetness to the fruit that is matched by lively acids that brighten-up the palate and add structural integrity.

    Clos de la Roche 2001

    Clos de la Roche 2002

    Deep and complex aromas of cherries, red plums, coffee, and a fine base of soil tones. Full-bodied and sappy at the core, with well-integrated tannins, good acidity and admirable length and grip on the finish. Drinking splendidly at the moment, and will age gracefully for many more years.

    Clos de la Roche 2005

    Clos de la Roche 2006

    The nose is a mélange of plums, cherries, dark berries, coffee and a lovely base of soil. Medium-full and focused, with lovely balance, depth and grip on the long finish. This is a very classic example of Clos de la Roche, and will drink very well now too.

    Latricieres Chambertin 1990

    Beautiful mature bouquet offers a classic expression of the vineyard, with crushed strawberries, red cherries, coffee, forest floor and cinnamon notes. Medium-full, deep and intensely flavored, with a superb focus and delineation. Tannins are well-integrated and matched by great acidity that will carry the wine easily another ten to fifteen years. A wine of breed and finesse.

This will evolve nicely over the next decade with some bottle age.

    Currently showing just a bit more soil signature and mid-palate dimension than the lovely 2002 version.
