There is one other negative thing here for me, which is the enthusiasm for new oak which specially in the reds interferes for me at least with the excellent purity of the fruit. That said, if you don't mind the wood (and most people seem not to these days), these are very well-crafted wines made by a man who is clearly a perfectionist.
As well as the Santenay and Auxey made under the J-M Vincent name there is now a negociant operation, Vincent-Escalier, and the wines are being made in the same cellar using bought-in fruit of the highest standard. Prices for both the domain and negociant wines are very reasonable considering the quality.
