Nose is the epitome of pineapple core with buttered popcorn and white flowers sneaking around.
Palate exudes tropical fruits, pineapple, papaya, lychee, light mango...All with low acidity making this so ridiculously enjoyable.
I can't believe I've found a Jadot we like better then the Ladoix Blanc, but here we are, home run, amazing, like wow!
2016 Burgundy...🎙drop. — 2 hours ago
Our first non-US Riesling for the 2017 vintage, looking quite positive! Decanted ~45m.
Nose has ripe peach, orange zest, fresh cut red apple and honey.
Palate is all about the citrus, a lemon juiced over top of a tangerine, then a bite of lime sprinkled with mineral dust. Crazy, but balanced acidity, just wow, what a lengthy finish! — 5 days ago
80% Pinot Noir + 20% Gamay = 100% Awesome. One barrel produced.
Nose has ripe black cherry, anise and touch of barrel toast.
Palate has mash of fresh black/red cherry, tart cherry and faintly, vanilla cola at the end of the finish.
Love how the Gamay plays here, for sure adding to the acidity experienced. Lightly tanninic, this should hold on for a few years, plus '16 Burgundy, I can't say enough positive things about this vintage.
24hr Update: Showing more integrated today, Pinot is pulling to the front, suggest very extended decant on next bottle. — a day ago
Decanted about ~2hrs.
Nose has ripe black cherry, wet autumn leaves and perhaps a skosh of oak.
Palate has bright tart red cherry, fresh black cherry and a little sous bois.
Very impressed with this Sangiovese from Emilia-Romagna (Ravenna) which is mystically drinking like a Burgundy. — 6 days ago
Nose has green apple peel, white peach, under-ripe tangerine juice and wet, decaying granite.
Palate is quite citrus-y, peach notes coming in strong mid-finish, light lingering sweetness and wet mineral dust on the tail end.
Decent wine, not the typical Müllen style, more like a Riesling trying to be a Burgundy, and doing a fairly positive effort in getting there. Future bottles 2022+ minimum.
Continuing to evolve with extended air, getting quite nice! — 3 days ago
Decanted, still letting the wine warm from cellar temperature.
Nose of lemon juice, toasted brioche and cold limestone.
Palate has yeasty citrus, creamy minerality and fun salinity on the finish.
A nice BdB with no dosage, evolving more with each sip. — 6 days ago
