WINE SPECTATOR
Jan. 24, 2007

The husband-and-wife team of Mounir Saouma and Rotem Brakin are the driving force behind this boutique négociant based in Beaune.

However, the two have not lost any time in creating red and white Burgundies with rich flavors that showcase a range of premier cru and grand cru sites from both the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits.

The 2003 and 2004 vintages present a stark choice for lovers of white Burgundy
By Bruce Sanderson

Fans of white Burgundy face an intereseting dilemma, if my recent tastings accurately reflect what's now offer in retail shops and restaurants. Roughly half the wines in current release are from the hot 2003 vintage; the rest come from the cooler growing season of 2004. There couldn't be more contrast between these two years and the wines they produced.
