Blason De Bourgogne

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Nose has fresh lemon slice, cut green & yellow apples, Italian bread, vanilla cremé and wet slate.

Palate has fresh pineapple, cold yellow apple, white flowers, sandstone and mild vanilla notes. Great acidity (as expected in the most youthful of stages, current vintage) with some drying, chalky aspects.

Decanted 90m. Another great Boillot Bourgogne Blanc to stock the cellar with for enjoyment 2023-29.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

Love this producer! Green and yellow apples. Very mineral forward though. Almost like Chablis but it is not. — 14 days ago

Domaine François Carillon

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Elegant and delightful regional Bourgogne Blanc with expressive white/yellow flower bouquet. Aromas of apricot, yellow peach and unripe pineapple with hint of honey, toasted nuts, and baking sweet spices rise from the glass. Bright acidity with white stone minerality. It’s a beautiful, well made Bourgogne Blanc! — a day ago

Domaine Leroy

Bourgogne Gamay 2019

Oh, what a treat. Anyone know where this fruit is from? High-toned, stemmy, crunchy, spicy fruit and a finish that gives pause. Wow. — 2 days ago

Domaine Michel David

Clos du Ferré Vieilles Vignes Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Sur Lie 2019

Superb nose of citrus (lemon, yuzu, even grapefruit) and a bit chalk. This is very inviting! The palate is very well made, with a wonderful fruity note all along, an almost sweet mouthfeel, and a long finish with that citrusy note which lasts a long while. It paired very well with a plate of pasta alla vongole and with some well aged French cheeses. — 7 days ago

When we are on the bassin d'arcachon, this is a go to meal. I should have added that we picked the vongole ourselves, knee-deep in the mud 😂 those little pleasures...

Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: fruitier than my last btl, with sweet lime, sweet tomato leaf, and soft vanilla. On the palate: same fantastic acidity. underripe.gooseberry, herbs/tomato leaf, good density, and some nice tang on the finish. Not quite as good as my last btl, but still very good. — 4 days ago

Domaine de Montille

Le Clos du Château Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Nose has pear slice, orange zest, various under-ripe stone fruits, pineapple core and yellow flowers; not overly expressive at this time.

Palate has tart pineapple, orange peel, slightly chalky, yellow apple and mild barrel flavors (more new than neutral?). Decent finish, but seems a little closed here as well.

90m decant; Note to future self, check again 2022-23-ish.

Winery Notes:
"Le Clos du Château" is essentially a vineyard of approximately five hectares that sits in front of the Château de Puligny and is entirely enclosed by walls. This facilitates our bio-dynamic farming methods.

Classified as Bourgogne AOC, this vineyard is remarkably well situated in the village on the border of the Puligny-Montrachet vineyards. The deep soil, consisting of silt and clay gives the wine a lovely generosity.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Conductor Keith Lockhart is leading an all John WILLIAMS program, with Mr. Williams (hopefully) sharing some of his wonderful stories to accompany the scores.

The program includes selections from..Superman, Heidi, Jaws, The Towering Inferno, Memoirs of a Geisha Oliver, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Olympic Fanfare & Theme, JFK, Schindler's List, The Witches of Eastwick, Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Empire Strikes Back, The Force Awakens and...Star Wars. So to say we're going to be well versed into the JW catalog will be the understatement of the evening for sure!!!
