Patrick is a perfectionist in the vineyard and in the cellar. He has 10ha of vineyard holdings spread over 14 appellations, ranging from Puligny Montachet to Pernand-Vergelleses. Since 1976, when he took over his father’s estate, the domaine has grown to become one of the best domaines in Meursault.
Patrick vinifies each parcel of land separately, depending on the intrinsic characteristics of the terroir as well as on the vintage conditions. The amount of new oak used in barrel-fermentation again depends on the provenance of the grapes. The wines of this domaine are typified by their rich flavours of tropical and citrus fruit with creamy and nutty oak. The Bourgogne Cuvées of Oligocene and des Forgets are some of the most serious Bourgognes you can find and are great value for money. Patrick’s wines can be easily drunk early but will also age fantastically for 5 – 10 years.
Patrick has created a new Meursault cuvée selected from two complementary terroirs to create wines that, as he puts it, are greater than the sum of their parts: “Les Clousots” is a blend of Les Clous and Les Crotots.

Bancroft Wines has strong, direct relationships with the most long-established négociants in Bordeaux as well as with many of the most respected estates and growers in Burgundy and the Rhone placing us in an ideal position to secure allocations of many of the world's most desirable wines before they are on the open market.
Buying en primeur involves buying wines before they have been released - before they are even bottled in most cases - and taking delivery up to two years later when the wines are collected from the Chateaux.
Reasons that people invest in en primeur with Bancroft Wines are:
1. It is an opportunity to buy up wines at their first release price to maximise investment potential.
2. It is often the only time some of the rarest wines will appear on the market.
3. Bancroft Wines only include wines that we consider will be almost impossible to track down in future years without paying a premium price.
4. It is the best way to ensure that your purchases have perfect provenance and will be stored correctly from its release until the day you drink it.
Our Fine Wine team has extensive experience of these wines and travels to each region annually to taste the wines before offering them. We are always happy to advise you on the wines that will best suit your buying plans and can create cellars for you on a discretionary or non-discretionary basis.
Please contact the team should you wish to hear more about purchasing en primeur.
