Mark Haisma Cornas Les Combes 2017

The Winery

Mark Haisma was, for a decade, winemaker at Yarra Yerring with the late Dr Bailey Carrodus. Now he’s making his own wine, acting as one of a new breed of micronegociants in Burgundy. Mark buys grapes and makes wine from them in rented space in a cellar in Gevrey Chambertin (Pierre Naigeon’s).

It’s a model that a number of passionate young winemakers are following. In Burgundy, vineyard prices are totally crazy—and that’s when you can get your hands on decent patches of vineyard, which hardly ever come on the market. This makes it pretty much impossible to start out in the region. But if you are reasonably well connected, you might be lucky enough to purchase decent grapes, and Mark has lived in the region since 2009.

He sells direct to customers through his website.

This has a ripe, succulent feel, with friendly plum cake and blackberry paste flavors forming the core, backed by judicious singed vanilla and cocoa notes. A subtle licorice root hint gives the finish a twinge, though...
Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse
For the vintage, this is a particularly rich wine. It is structured and firm with opulent black-plum fruit that gives the wine a ripe character. Dense with supporting tannins, the wine is going to develop well over...
