1 X BOUGOGNE BLANC, 2017

A classic regional Bourgogne Blanc, this wine is produced using fruit from Macon, St Aubin, Puligny and Meursault. The winemaking is simple – fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts, full malolactic fermentation before ageing in oak – to shine a light on the intrinsic characteristics of Burgundian Chardonnay. Bright and perfumed, with some oatmeal and creaminess on the nose. The palate is clean, refreshing with yellow apple, quince and a hint of stony minerality.

1 x BOUGOGNE PINOT NOIR, 2017

Winemaker Fiona Ragg uses fruit from throughout Burgundy and employs simple winemaking techniques to showcase the inherent characteristics of Burgundian Pinot Noir. The result is a moreish wine with juicy cherry fruit, fine chalky tannins, and a savoury finish that pairs wonderfully with food or simply with good conversation.

1 X BOURGOGNE ALIGOTE, 2017

Made using Burgundy’s other white grape, this wine shows off a lighter side to the region. This Aligoté offers both refinement and refreshment, with a focus on crisp acidity, floral and citrus notes, and a gentle mouthfeel. An excellent match with fish and seafood, this wine has the weight and concentration to also take on weightier meals – think succulent roast chicken!

1 X CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET, 2016

Chassagne-Montrachet is renowned for its rich, minerally-charged Chardonnays - and this is no exception. The region's cool climate and limestone-permeated soils ensure slow ripening allowing flavour and concentration to build. Succulent on the palate with a combination of bright fruit, electric acidity and light chalkiness giving great complexity. A delight to drink!

1 X SAVIGNY-LES-BEAUNE 'LES BAS LIARDS', 2018

The commune of Savigny-les-Beaune lies between the Hill of Corton and the city of Beaune and is well-known for producing beautifully balanced and expressive Pinot Noir. And this wine is no exception. The grapes come from the gentler, lower part of the sloping 'Les Bas Liards' vineyard where soils are pebbly and alluvial. The result is an elegant Pinot Noir perfumed with savoury notes and rich candied fruit. The palate gives pure berry fruit and a fine, savoury backbone, with dusty tannins and a long fruit-driven finish.  

1 X ALOXE-CORTON 'LES CAILLETES', 2014

The commune of Savigny-les-Beaune lies between the Hill of Corton and the city of Beaune and is well-known for producing beautifully balanced and expressive Pinot Noir. And this wine is no exception. The grapes come from the gentler, lower part of the sloping 'Les Bas Liards' vineyard where soils are pebbly and alluvial. The result is an elegant Pinot Noir perfumed with savoury notes and rich candied fruit. The palate gives pure berry fruit and a fine, savoury backbone, with dusty tannins and a long fruit-driven finish.  

About Mischief and Mayhem

In 2003, after working for Berry Bros & Rudd wine merchants for almost ten years, Michael and Fiona Ragg swapped bustling London for the small Burgundian village of Aloxe Corton where they established Mischief & Mayhem. Over time they established a large network of contacts throughout the Cote d’Or, including several grape growers they call upon each harvest to select only the best grapes for their wines.

They regularly visit all the vineyards they work with, to directly monitor vine health and vineyard development throughout the season; this ensures that their wines truly reflect the terroir-specific nature that is Burgundy. They are firm advocates of sustainable viticulture, low yields and hand harvesting. In the winery, they work traditionally to capture characters of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, and the sites they come from.
