Vintage Chart


Overshadowed by the 1982’s but a very good classic Vintage

1982 Large Vintage of superb wines beginning to drink now. Cool August and hot September left
The grapes in great condition and made it a vintage of the century.
1983 Little more austere than 1982. Margaux wines better than 1982
1984 poor weather early on damaged the Merlot, late rain ruined the Cabernet – need we say more ?
1985 Classic Vintage producing wines of great balance and finesse. St. Emilion and Pomerol
1986 Large Vintage of good wines at their best in the Medoc
1987 Poor summer – late rains- a dilute vintage much berated but it produced pleasant short term
1988 Dry weather thickened the skins producing firm tannins that have taken some time to soften.
1989 Excellent, through not as fleshly as the 1990’s. Merlot faired a little better than the Cabernet
1990 A big crop of fat ripe grapes producing wonderfully rich wines with ripe integrated tannins.
1991 Frost in April reduced the yield and late rains diluted what was left ! Drink up !
1992 a large Vintage of generally fairly dilute wines for the short term.
1993 Heavy late rains diluted many wines. Light pleasant early drinking vintage.
1994 Promising before rainfall. Wine of St. Emilion and Pomerol picked before rain can be excellent
1995 More concentrated than 1993 or 1994 due to less rain and excellent conditions early on.
1996 Firm ripe tannins, good level of acids. Cabernet dominated wines show good concentration
Similar to 1986 and 1988
1997 a good year but one often missed and overshadowed by those that followed. They exhibit
good fruit and are drinking very well now. Prices are reasonable.
1998 a superb year for the Merlot based wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol and generally good
for the Merlot
1999 A year that produced some big, fleshy, tannic wines, particularly in the Medoc.
2000 An almost consistently excellent Vintage through both left and right banks and through the
Price ranges. The lesser names and appellations where the prices did not shoot up in the
Top names, can offer good value.
2001 A good vintage but one which is overshadowed by its predecessor. Good balance, fruit and structure, wines typical of their appellations and good prices makes this a good choice.
2002 A Cabernet year and so impressive in the left bank. The right bank was more patchy.
2003 Hot, hot, hot ! Must be one of the most controversial vintages on record resulting in
Spats between some of the most influential wine critics – time ( and taste ) will tell !!

J.P.Marchand - Gevrey Chambertin

Our House wine comes from the cellars

J.P.Marchand - Gevrey Chambertin

The Wine Areas of Burgundy

Chablis District, Cote de Nuits and Haute - Cotes de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Hautes - Cotes de Beaune, The Cote Chalonaise and The Maconais.

Some of the famous Villages are: Gevrey Chambertin, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St. George, Puligny Montrachet, Rully, Givry ... just to name a few.

Domaine Jean – Pillippe Marchand – Gevrey Chambertin.

The Marchand Estate was founded in 1813 by Pierre Marchand a small winegrower. He married Marie Jacotier who had inherited a small estate from her father. In 1983 Phillippe took over and bought the  winery in Chambertin. The present building goes back to the 18th century and is used today for wine making, cellering and storing all on the same site.

The Marchand holdings are in Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny, Saint Denis featuring some first growth wines like Les Sentieres at Chambolle, Clos des Ormes at Morey, Les Combotytes at Gevry, Griottes Chambertin and Charmes Chambertin at Gevry only to name a few.

Most of the vines are more than 40 years old and the grapes are harvested by hand with great care. New and old barrels are used depending on the wines and Phillippe is personally taking great care so that top quality wines are produced.

We are proud to work with Marchand and have developed our house wines supplied by him. These wines are highly recommended together with his fine wine selection from the area of Chambertin.

The Beaujolais

This very large district is famou to produce the only Gamay wine to gain classic status. It is a light, purple coloured, fresh and quaffing wine that accounts for no less tha 6 out of 10 bottles of Burgundy produced every year.

The Maison – Chapoutier

M. ChapoutierSince its inception in 1808, seven generation shave followed to built up one of the most magnifcant Domaine Ine the Rhone Valley. The Maison M. Chapoutier has progressively spread and diversified within the Heart-Land of the Hermitage, Crozes – Hermitage, Saint – Joseph, Ardeche, Cote – Rotie, Condrieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Bayuls, Coteaux d’Aix, Tricastin and Roussillon appellations.

In addition to its own vineyards, M. Chapoutier controls the Vinification and often the cultivation of other Appellations which it commercialises : Cornas, Gigondas, Tavel, Muscat des Beaume de Venise In 1990 Michel Chapoutier took over the reins of this resolutely family-based and independent wines house.

Under his guidance, it has continued to spread towards other French wine regions, and has even broken through it’s country’s frontiers to breach wine making in the new world, especially Australia. It has also undergone a radical change in cultivation methods, as Michel Chapoutier, a fervent defender of the Soil, has converted the entire Domaine over to bio – dynamic cultivation.

Moreover, Michel Chapoutier’s pioneering spirit can be excemplified by his humanistic and innovative use of Braille labelling and by the creation of the award for the Best Young Sommelier of France.

La Croix Chevaliere by M. Laroche

LarocheMichel Laroche had been watching the Languedoc with interest for over ten years when he found the right opportunity to invest and bought Mas La Chevalière in 1995. It is the region’s quality that specifically attracted him, thanks to the combination of over 2000 years of viticultural history and the range of grapes, soils and climates.

Yves Barry, the winemaker, is French, but has considerable international winemaking experience. He works with Michel to produce a range of superior quality wines, each a true expression of its particular “terroir”. From the first vintage, the wines have won international recognition and awards.

La Croix Chevalière is Michel Laroche’s ‘Great Red of the South’, made in very limited quantities and only in the very best years.  It reflects the real heights of quality found in the best vineyards of the South of France.

The Vineyard

Wine quality is firmly rooted in the vineyard and Richard Lavanoux, MLC's viticulturalist, has made it his mission to seek out the most exciting plots of vines across the vast vineyards of the South of France.  Altitude, stony soil, precarious slopes and old vines are all things he looks out for on his constant tours of the region.  He and his team work closely with growers to reduce yields, pick late and train the leaf canopy for maximum fruit ripeness.  Mas La Chevalière even breaks the local tradition of paying for grapes by weight (which encourages vineyard owners to produce higher yields, potentially leading to lower quality), and instead pays by area of vineyard, giving growers real incentive to keep yields down in favour of quality.

The fruit for La Croix Chevalière is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cabernet Sauvignon, the proportions of which will change with every release to reflect the best fruit available.  The Cabernet comes from the foothills of the Cévennes Mountains in the northern Gard, both the Syrah and Cabernet are taken from grapes in the Béziers region and the Orb Valley, the Grenache comes from the Maury vineyards in Roussillon, and Mourvèdre is from the Remoulins district of the Gard department.  A high proportion of the grapes come from Mas La Chevalière’s own vines.

The Cellar

The aim in the winery is to enhance the natural quality of the fruit.  The grapes are all destalked and fermented at around 26 - 28ºC, with a yeast from the Rhône Valley.  The young wine is left to macerate on the skins for around 3 weeks, and then run into barrels for the malolactic fermentation.  It matures in French oak, with a high proportion of new barrels, for 18 months, where it is naturally stabilised in the cool cellar and then bottled unfiltered to preserve its complexity.  It may throw a light deposit in time.


Deep ruby red in colour, with inviting ripe berry and black fruit aromas, notes of bitter chocolate and a whiff of smoky oak and spice.  It is rich, ripe and velvety in the mouth, with masses of lingering cassis and blackberry fruit, lovely texture and a superb balance of tannin backbone and acidity.

Serve at room temperature, and open 1-2 hours before drinking.  A wonderful accompaniment to spring lamb, roast game birds and rare beef.  Its ripe generous fruit makes La Croix Chevalière enjoyable now, but it will also keep and gain complexity for another 8 years.

Just a selection of some of the great Vineyards like:

Bouchard - Chavy - Louis Latour - Louis Jadot - William Fevre - Baron Philippe Rothschild - Joseph Drouhin - Faiveley - Antonin Rodet - Engel - Domaine Claude Marechal - J Moreau - Laroche - Domaine R Luquet - Domaine Voarick - Domaine Lalande - Chateau de Jacques - Emile Chandesais - P David - Donatien Bahaud - Langlois Chateau - Alexis Deschamps - Paul Thomas - Jaboulet Vercherre - M Chapoutier - Barton & Guestier - Montesqieu. name but a few!
