Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy

Domaine Julien Cruchandeau

Cuvée Massale Bouzeron Aligoté 2019

Lyle Fass

Another great version of this Bouzeron. Lime zest and minerals on the nose. Super clean and fresh. Terrific palate. Has a lovely balance between richness and freshness. Textured and deep. Awesome purity, depth and structure. Love the combo of richness allied with freshness. Decent length. But what a mid palate. — 6 days ago

Château de Cary Potet

Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Pinot Noir 2018

Still loving this simple Pinot. We paired it with a (very) hot and spicy turkey and rice dish and it held its ground brilliantly. Superb cherry nose with a tiny touch of iron and hay, nice lower acid palate with a vibrant cherry note and a soft mouthfeel. Very gentle tannins before a long cherry finish. Simple yet delicious — 20 days ago

Domaine François Lumpp

La Brûlée Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Graduation Day for our son Christopher. Hereford High 2021. Next stop University of Maryland, College Park. We are super proud!!!

Bottle 1... Deep red-purple with beautiful, equally-spaced staining legs. Herbs and wild flowers dominate the nose, but tart red fruit--mainly sour strawberry--on the palate. Perfect round medium plus body, medium plus acidity--perhaps even high, medium delicate tannins and a very long finish. Alcohol is medium plus. Drinkable now... As I'm currently drinking it... Better in another couple-three years.

Bourgogne-Aligoté Aligoté

Entirely underrated grape…if you like higher acid whites. I get minerals/stones and maybe apple. I wish I had a gooey musky French cheese to compliment it. — 21 days ago

Château de Chamirey

Mercurey Chardonnay 2015

2015 vintage. Many Côte de Beaune wines from the famous appellations like Meursault are out of reach for many winelovers, but thankfully there is terrific stuff to be found in less prestigious parts of Burgundy and Château de Chamirey is a safe bet. This "village" Mercurey comes from 6 different plots with predominantly limestone and clay soils. Malolactic and alcoholic fermentations in barrel. Ageing in lightly toasted barriques (15% new). Bright yellow fruit and flowers. In the mouth it displays the richness of the 2015 vintage, but with impeccable balance and very good length. The oak is perfectly integrated and it has a certain complexity and very good length. Very good value as it outperforms many a Meursault at half the price. Kudos to the Devillard family. Highly recommended. — an hour ago
