Established in 1999, this two-person micro-négoce is owned by Mounir and Rotem Saouma. They describe the 2009 vintage as 'the best vintage we have ever seen and that includes 2005. The tenderness, finesse and terroir transparency are simply magnificent. It was a unique vintage in that, typically, when you taste a Pinot Noir grape, you enjoy the juice and the pulp and then spit out the skin as it's mildly astringent. In 2009 the skins were sweet too. Which we believe is in a way representative of the entire vintage.'

BurghoundA more elegant if slightly less complex nose of very ripe red currant, plum, warm earth and subtle spice hints slides seamlessly into rich, generous and very fleshy flavors that are supported by notably finer tannins and excellent length. This doesn't have the sheer depth and length of the amazing Mazis but I admire this for its understated class. 92-94

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Griottes-Chambertin offers up sweet red cherries, crushed flowers and spices, all of which come together on an inviting, polished frame. Sensual and inviting, the Griottes impresses for its poise and harmony. The finish is given an extra dimension by clean, saline notes. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.
