Mischief and Mayhem was established in 2004 by Englishman Michael Ragg and his partner (now wife) Fiona. For ten years they have been producing very fine, fairly-priced Burgundy on a negociant basis, and the company achieved full domaine status in 2012 with the purchase of a small plot – conveniently in front of their property – of Aloxe-Corton, Les Caillettes. In 2013 a plot of Savigny-les-Beaune 1er cru Les Gravieres was added to the portfolio.
The Raggs’ philosophy is refreshingly simple: clean, precise, elegant wines. After more than ten years on the ground in Burgundy, an enviable book of contacts has been built up, and fruit is sourced from the cream of the growers and from the best vineyards. Vinification is now done in-house, and more wine than ever is bought as fruit as opposed to juice. There is no financial advantage to this: it’s all about quality and control.
The style of the whites is clean and pure with a distinctly mineral edge. Ask Ragg for his inspiration and the names of Lafon and Roulot will almost certainly come up. If the wines have a hallmark on top of their precision and minerality it is their sheer drinkability on top of their technical excellence.
The style of the reds again focusses on purity, and the same dedication goes into the sourcing of the fruit. The wines are about terroir, an aspect that is particularly clear in the single vineyard bottlings.
M&M also make one of our house favourites: a Bourgogne Blanc that is arguably one of the best buys in Burgundy.

What Are ‘En Primeur’ Wines?
‘En primeur’ wines, or wine ‘futures’ are those that are bought before the wine has been bottled and are still in the barrel. They are bought in bond – i.e. excluding duty and VAT. For many wines, buying ‘en primeur’ allows you to buy at a better price than buying after the wine has been bottled and shipped. The wine typically arrives in the UK one to three years after the harvest, therefore up to two years after you have made your purchase.
This wine has been flagged as less than 'perfect condition' (taking into consideration its age). The relevant indicators can include: lower content level, bin-soiled label, damaged cap etc. As a result, this is available at a discounted market price.
