Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2018

2022/7/4 with kuro-shitabirame nitsuke, etc. This was a tricky one. The nose starts out very quietly - which I often find to be the case with AOC Bourgogne - even many of the best bottles. (Yes, there have been exceptions.) with time and coaxing glints of butter, nuts, lemon peel and stone emerge - this might benefit from a bit more bottle age, or at least a vigorous airing. On the palate there’s more to it from the start - some lemony bread pudding and stream stone. When looking for “bargains” (a very relative term) in Burgundy, going outside the Côte d’Or vs looking for hidden gems on the slope tends to yield different results. I’ve found more overtly pleasurable, blatantly lovable wines via the former - with the latter, you really have to dig into the wines to see what’s there. But I have had some great older bottles of the latter type, so I would love to see how this goes. — 8 hours ago

Pierre Moncuit

Cuvée Nicole Moncuit Vieille Vigne Grand Cru Extra Brut Champagne 2006

Pale yellow on pour…vivid notes of lemon, quince, yuzu with a hint of baked bread. Medium weight, nice acid/fruit balance. No “wow” here, but nicely serviceable as early summer dinner companion to Veal Piccatta …lemon, butter, capers, champagne… near perfection! — a month ago
