Some reasonable price movement here versus their 2007 offer – I’m sure I bought the Volnay and Meursault Perrières at those same prices in the 2002 vintage!

Whilst I still find the ‘baby Jesus’ a little expensive, I see real value in the premier crus if you are happy to drink the whites young, and of-course their Le Corton if you can afford to wait 20 years 😉

    The “Baby Jesus” ages just beautifully. And the Volnay Caillerets is a terrific wine, especially from such a big house. The prices seem fair.

    Lord!! 75 for enfant jesus. Always used to be my “go to” wine for 20 euros or so

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
