    2019 Mischief and Mayhem

    Mischief and Mayhem was started as a micro négociant in 2003, based in the village of Aloxe-Corton.

    Established by Brits Michael Ragg and Fiona Traill-Stevenson after working for Berry Bros & Rudd wine merchants in London, they decided to establish their own négociant business based on the substantial number of connections they have to individual growers, enabling them to gain access to some of the finest grapes in the region.

    The company achieved full domaine status in 2012 with the purchase of a small plot in Aloxe-Corton Les Caillettes. An additional vineyard in Savigny-lès-Beaune Premier Cru Aux Gravains was added to the portfolio in 2013 and more recently, a small but exceptional site in Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Referts. The domaine are also engaged in a renovation programme, creating a new winery and barrel cellars in Aloxe-Corton.

    Their process is very much focussed on quality with regular vineyard inspections to determine vine health and vineyard development through the growing season and advocate sustainable viticulture with low yields and hand harvesting. The winery policy is also minimally interventionist with only a small use of oak, with the emphasis being placed on truly capturing the terroir of the region.

    This is very much a domaine and négociant business on the rise and whilst there is little in the way available for scores this is a domaine that is not short of praise. We are pleased to offer a selection of their fantastic releases from their cellars.

    We are pleased to offer a fantastic selection of their 2018 vintage - Please note Grand Cru wines are tied 1:2 with village wines and 1:1 with Premier Cru wines.


    2019 Mischief and Mayhem Corton Charlemagne - GBP 565 per 6x75cl IB
    (10+ Cases)

    Pale gold in colour, shot through with green. Intense, powerful nose of baked apple and pear fruit, along with notes of shortbread biscuit, lemon curd, macadamia nut and cream.
    On the palate the wine is full and powerful. Extremely youthful but evidently complex, dense, firm and with a great core of saline, rocky minerality. Surprisingly supple and round, yet plenty of grip and structure. Terrific acidity and texture, reflected by the beautiful citric fruit and creamy elements to the wine. The epitome of richness, without heaviness. A classic Corton-Charlemagne.

    2019 Mischief and Mayhem Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Referts - GBP 375 per 6x75cl IB (10 + Cases)

    Pale straw in colour, shot through with light gold. Powerful and complex nose of lemon and pear, with notes of green apple, brioche, spice and cream.
    On the palate the wine is supple, and round yet extremely well defined, with a beautiful acidic structure and crisp, tightly wound core. Lifted and mineral, there is also a layered and textural element to the wine that is reflective of the outstanding vintage characteristics of freshness and vivacity. A stunning Puligny that, whilst approachable in its youth, will repay cellaring. A rich, yet beautifully lean finish.

    2019 Mischief and Mayhem Puligny Montrachet - GBP  250 per 6x75cl IB
    (10 + Cases)

    Pale straw in colour tinged with green. Stunning purity on the nose. So clean and focused with a citric edge of lime and greengage and lots of mineral, quartz and smoke notes. Beautiful intensity – Puligny in its purest form. On the palate the wine is a perfect reflection of the nose. Intense, almost saline elements. Flint, lemon and lime fruit and an acidic profile and structure around which everything melds seamlessly. Outstanding.
