Gamay of « great » Burgundy which means that it is somewhere between the gamay style of Beaujolais and Burgundian winemaking. We have a floral and aerial character reminiscent of Chiroubles or Fleurie, with notes of medley evolution, undergrowth reminiscent of Burgundy pinots-noirs. The finish is salivating (almost saline) on greedy acidity. 2016 is to drink now.
Gamay de « grande Bourgogne » qui veut dire que c’est quelque part entre le style gamay du Beaujolais avec la vinification bourguignonne. On a un caractère floral et aérien qui rappelle Chiroubles ou Fleurie, avec des notes d’évolution pot-pourri, sous-bois qui rappellent les pinots-noirs bourguignons. La finale est salivante (presque saline) sur une acidité gourmande. 2016 est prêt à boire. — 12 days ago
After a 2 weeks pause for (very mild) health reasons I thought it would be good to pop a bottle I had kept on the side for such occasion.
Cola, cherry, hay and an irony thing one the nose, very inviting. The palate is superlative. Massive acid backbone, superb juicy cherry fruit all along, great width, soft mouthfeel, a little bit of cherry liqueur on the sides too, ample mid palate with a slight drying effect like a subtle brush and a finish with those same cherry juice and cherry liqueur notes. This is so beautiful... — 9 days ago
One of the best values in Burgundy. Producer and estate. Such a gorgeous nose. Big sappy red fruits, elegant spices and cooling minerals. Huge cherry explosion. Real depth here and such vivid aromatic details. So pretty. Wow, 19 is the bomb! Palate is so juicy and so pure. Okay, my man has taken the leap. The balance here is extraordinary. So clean and balanced. Startling purity. This is blowing my mind. Such supple texture. So silken and sweet. Crystalline levels of purity here. Almost a 9.3 and could be with air. Just needs to flesh out a bit. But it’s all there.
After much air this is super floral and just lovely. Stunning fruit. So pretty. Still keeping at 9.2. My initial assessment was correct. — 12 days ago
Solid white Burgundy. Initially it is very tight, proper aeration and cold temp help enormously. Green straw color with white flowers, mist, wet stone and citrus scents of tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. The pallet follows the nose with bright bright acidity and a touch of honey on the slightly tannic finish. Couldn’t think of a more perfect pairing for PF Changs Kung Pao Chicken. — 14 days ago
Going on 5 yrs, thought I’d give this unusual Cru Bojo from Brouilly a try. It’s singularity is first hinted at with a 14.5% abv; it also needs air & time to really come together; finally, it has some serious tannins. Like arid desert dry tannins, or something that one would get in only a Southern French red— like Madiran ( Tannat) or Cot (Malbec). At end of day, needed a good decant or another 3/4 yrs. — 5 days ago
Pop and pour yesterday. Better than I remember my last btl being. On the nose: musty mulberry, vanilla, spice, rose. On the palate: good acidity, lovely density and weight...black pepper, mulberry and blackberry. Soft, finely grained tannin on the finish. Yum. — 3 days ago
This is really awesome. First, lemon cream and kiwi on the nose. The palate is linear at first but builds in volume. A quinine-like bitterness provides the bass note and the perception of sweetness and long acids play so well on top. Such precision. It’s hard not to keep sipping this until the bottle is gone. — 10 days ago
I’m not a major natural wine guy. Some I like, some I don’t. These, however, I positively adore. Stunning purity of cherry fruit inflected with fresh herbs and sour cherries and dried flowers on the finish. Electric acidity and faint dusty tannins. Outstanding. Wish I had a few more bottles. Did you know that my iPhone auto-corrects “gamay” to “fanatic?” Ain’t that just perfect? — 19 hours ago
