“As the scores & comments confirm, Rossignol has once again produced several truly stunning wines & his ‘11s are among some of the very best wines that I sampled in the Côte de Beaune” – Allen Meadows – Burghound
“Burgundy’s latest Vanguard” – Bruce Sanderson – Wine Spectator
‘…this will surely be a domaine follow’ Jasper Morris MW – Inside Burgundy
Nicolas’s wines are fine-boned, elegant, deeply-coloured and flavourful. His low-interventionist winemaking philosophy ensures the full potential of the fruit and the commune is consistently expressed in the final wine.
