Lucien Muzard’s sons, Hervé and Claude now run the domaine. They are the ninth generation of a family that can trace its lineage in Santenay back to 1666. While they respect traditional wine-making practices, they also keep an open mind to modern changes in viniculture. In the vineyards they have greatly reduced grape yields to intensify flavour. In the cellar they have eliminated fining and only filter when strictly necessary. This is a source of spotlessly pure great value Burgundy.

Deeply coloured and more aromatic and silky than the 2011 this vintage shows just how immediately charming the very best wines from the excellent 2012 vintage can be.
