2021 has rung in the changes, so as well as being awarded a second star by La Revue du Vin de France (a sort of Michelin equivalent for winemakers), then winning their coveted ‘negociant of the year’ (first woman and first foreigner to do so), Jane has now moved operations to new premises across and along from Volnay in Cissey. This should give her enough space to expand production and also host the growing number of admirers of her wines.

50% whole bunch, aged in 500l old oak, bottled July 2021
This is Jane's regular Fleurie now labelled with the parcel where she sources the grapes. Nose is initially herbal, peppery, with red plums, some arboreal - ivy and moss notes, currants, black tea and embers, sweeter red berry fruits develop in the glass.

Fine-boned with succulent plum skin acidity and lightly cedary, tea leaf tannins, redcurrants, and a savoury, tangy mid-palate leading to a sapid, celery salt finish. Enjoyable straight away but you can see this ageing with some elan. Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"Jane’s traditional cuvée made from 90 year old vines, 60% whole bunch then two to three weeks on skins, raised in 500 litre barrels and bottled in July. Pale pretty purple, this is sensual and startling, really fine, very Fleurie, with just the right touch of acidity. Intense but not dramatically weighty. Comes in at 13%."
Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, October 2021, 91 points
