Beaune 1er Cru les Sceaux, Domaine Rois Mages 2016

Red | France | Burgundy | 13% | Full-bodied red

Probably the best Sceaux we have tasted... Anne-Sophie has handed over all responsibility for the Domaine to son Félix, calling him the boss, although she is clearly still very involved. She reckons that Félix is a better red wine maker than her and he’s lengthening the macerations to increase the intensity of both colour and fruit; we were certainly even more enchanted by the reds than in previous vintages.

Having been puzzled by the choice of the Rois Mages name for the Domaine, all became clear this year when Anne-Sophie revealed that her maiden name was Melchior, one of the three kings – the Rois Mages.

From 60 ares, which normally produce 10 barrels but just five were made in 2016. Deep red black, with a sweet, tarry and spiced nose, brambly and alluring, with some tar and vanillin, spiced and deliciously attractive with some feral, animal notes behind, leading to a palate of sweet black fruit, deliciously rich and intense, rounded, with some rose notes, ripe tannins, supple with a nice bite of acidity and a lovely succulent finish. Probably the best Sceaux we’ve tasted. Drink 2020 - 2025
