The Grand Testing 2020 by Bettane + Desseauve,

Expert's comment: "Very ripe fruity (blackcurrant), round mouth, pleasant, just right."
1 * star for our Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre Chardonnay 2017.
"This 2017 with a discreet nose of white flowers, apple, almond and hazelnut reveals a rich but not heavy mouth, highlighted by a nice minerality. Nice stretch in the final."
Following the initial technical evaluation, our domain obtains High Environmental Value certification.
"High environmental value (HEV) corresponds to the highest level of a more general scheme of environmental certification for farms. The farm environmental certification is a voluntary approach which aims to identify and promote particularly environmentally-friendly practices applied by farmers. HEV covers four key areas: biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, management of fertiliser use and management of water." (source :agriculture.gouv.fr)
1 * star for our Bourgogne Aligoté 2015.
"White fruits and green apple compose a pretty expressive bouquet. The mouth is a real delight as it appears full of fruit, well tense by a fine acidity, while offering a nice magnitude and flexibility".

Our Saint-Bris 2014 receive 1 * star.
"A complex Saint-Bris that holds surprises, "concluded a taster, evoking the aromas of citrus, boxwood, white flowers and undergrowth that lead to olfaction.This Saint-Bris also shows a very nice balance between dense and round matter and a beautiful mineral and lemony tension that brings dynamism and length.

Our Saint-Bris 2014 gets the score of 14.5 / 20 and enters the selection "Plaisir-Prix" du Guide d'Achat Belge 2016 Vins & Terroirs Authentiques. "Ripe fruit and pastry invade the first nose of this fragrant bouquet, which is completed with aeration of subtle floral scents (acacia, lily) and a discrete mineral touch. A mouth melted and gourmand, very friendly by its delicate freshness. A fine acidity brings him the necessary tension and the final, on citrus, reveals a pleasant persistence. A delicious and happy wine."
