Carelles sous la Chapelle Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2020

Lyle Fass
9.6

Always one of the most elegant 1er Crus in Volnay. Nose is a bit reticent as we start off with light cherry and some herbals plus some sweet black cherry fruit. Also some reduction which will blow off. Lovely bramble desiccated leaves and super wet earth and soil tones. What a palate. Teeming with energy and freshness. Wow great acidity here and tremendous fruit. Terrific inner mouth aromas and stunning sapidity. So elegant and structured with incredibly deep fruit. What length and seriousness! This is the first 2020 i’ve tasted that needs 3-5 years in the cellar. Amazing sweet tannins and they are so finely knit like a cashmere sweater. This is brilliant! I’ll be back as it opens. — 7 hours ago

Volnay Pinot Noir 2020

9.4

Gorgeous nose. Luscious dark black cherries and darker red cherries. Ethereal and heavenly. So deep and so enveloping. Gorgeous dusty tree bark, some soy as well. Stunning. Best village nose of any Buffet Volnay I’ve had. The fruit clarity is off the charts. Superb complexity and freshness and the fruit is way redder on the palate. Amazing compact quality and so pure and balanced. Complex and so mineral. This is profoundly delicious. A lithe but substantial structure. Gorgeous saline aspect on the nose. Wow the mineral/fruit combo is only something Burgundy can do at this level. Now the florals are kicking in. What sweet, velvety tannins. A beautiful bottle of Volnay. — 7 hours ago

Les Contours de Mairlant Marsanne Roussane 2018

Charcterful niiiice white! Honeymelon and lichie with a long taste on the palate. Starts a little bit musty on day one. So maybe give some air to enjoy without any disturbing mustyness. — a day ago

Cave Des Rois St-Saphorin Syrah 2020

Pretty purple dress. First superb nose both fresh and peppery on small black blueberry, blackcurrant, violet flower; then more surprising notes on mountain climates and stink in Switzerland for me. It evokes more southern notes of syrah, such as Cornas, St-Joseph, bacon and smoke without the graphite charcoal side. Really a beautiful cuvée that connects two types of syrah usually tasted. The mouth is fluid. Cuvée full of charm with certainly cold extraction to infuse the fruit to the maximum without excess alcohol. Congratulations Switzerland once again! 🙏🇨🇭

Jolie robe pourpre. Premier nez ouvert à la fois frais et poivré, petits fruits noirs myrtille, cassis, violette; puis des notes plus surprenantes sur les climats de montagnes évoquant les syrah plus sudistes (Cornas, St-Joseph): lard, fumée sans le côté charbon graphite. Une belle cuvée faisant la jonction entre deux types de syrah habituellement goûtées. La bouche est fluide et salivante. Cuvée pleine de charme avec certainement une extraction à froid pour infuser le fruit au maximum sans excès d’alcool. Bravo la Suisse encore une fois ! 🙏🇨🇭
