Domaine Moissenet-Bonnard is small. Bettane and Desseauve say artisinal. The domaine has been in the same family for eight generations. They produce 13 different wines from their tiny estate including a range of exceptionally well priced reds.
Most are from Pommard where they have a fine selection of lieut-dits and Premier Crus. But one little gem is their Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Les Duresses.
This vineyard is the best sited in the commune with stony soil over limestone - perfect for making quality red wines. If you don't know where Auxey-Duresses is (which is perfectly fine) I can tell you that it abuts Meursault and is a kilometre from Volnay. Not a bad part of the world.
For those who love structure and power the domaine also has some exceptional Pommard including Les Epenots.

Like many small domaines they are not cover by the English-speaking critics. However, the wines are very much appreciated by the French and recently the domaine was well written up in Sommeliers International magazine. You can read a copy of the article here.
If you are looking for some delicious, well-priced Burgundy (and who isn't) you really should take a look at these wines. Many of you have purchased 2010 and 2011 from us and the new releases continue, if not improve further, on the quality of the past.
After all, where else can you buy a Premier Cru Red Burgundy for this price?
