    Colleen and Nicholas Harbour did not inherit their great, great grandfather’s wine Domaine, but rather pushed everything they studied and worked for to the side to pursue their dream of producing pure, terroir-driven wines in Burgundy. Having secured some superb parcels in the Côte d’Or, the husband and wife team has been producing wines of highest quality and finesse in their tiny cellar in Savigny-lès-Beaune, bringing the spirit of love for the wines and the area alive.

Press Review

    Maison Harbour Pommard 1er Cru 'Les Chanlins' 2018

    Not an easy vintage for red wines in Burgundy, I feel, or at least not quite to my taste. Too fleshy and ripe, not enough acidity.
    Raspberry, vanilla wafer and cinnamon biscuits, a little earthiness and blood character too. It’s fleshy, ripe red fruits, pleasing grip to tannin and subtle earthiness, though feels a bit loose and smudged, lacking precision and energy. Finish is slightly tighter, some orange peel here, with the cavalry of tannin arriving late, almost saving the day, though not quite. On the upside, has a natural and unforced feel, and more than a little charm, which is nice to see.
