Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos des Myglands Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Pop and pour. One btl remaining. This tasted over the hill at first: no nose, tired palate. I didn't pour it down the drain and my father-in-law insisted on tasting it. He said: it isn't flawed, which is true, but it also seemed well past prime at the time.
Nevertheless, after 3 hrs: nose of soft plum, gamebird and cocoa, and the softest touch of VA. On the palate, slightly less compelling, hi-toned black and red fruit with some green notes and a tangy, bright finish. Conclusion: seems solid to good with a fair amount of air!

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

DAY 1
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry

Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish

Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

Cuvée Marguerite Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Superbe encore une fois. À peine réduit, Fruits blancs, poires, un peu de citron aussi. Une bouche fort équilibrée avec une texture irrésistible, acidité bien présente pour balancer une certaine richesse mais sans exces. 92-93

Great once more, nicely balanced, white fruit, some lemon peel, auch great texture and mouthfeel, nice delicious finish.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1991

bought on release, given away compared to current pricing, opened tonight. Gorgeous wine from the get go with room to run, super nose of iron, a bit of meat, licorice, dark fruit, all echoed on the palate, dark fruit and plum, hints of smoke, just gorgeous. Silky palate. Wife rarely has more than a glass or so, but tonight kept pace with me the entire bottle, emptied too quickly. 91 reds are a forgotten vintage, far better than considered when released in the shadow of 90. — 10 days ago

This is a great bottle!
Agreed on '90 dominance, can't say I've had any '91's yet, but I'll find some with careful storage. 🤞

@Alan Weinberg I have enjoyed ‘91 burgundies

Le Mons Helios Monthelíe Pinot Noir 2013

About 2 years from my last btl. Another spectacular showing. This has the density and poise of grand cru fruit. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry, cherry, balsam and spice. Clear stylish, well-judged, oak influence. Lovely acidiry and fantastically balanced density and weight. Long finish. This has plenty of upside still. Who says 2013s can't be exciting? — 2 days ago

Bouzeron Aligoté 2019

Definitely more tart than its chard burg counterparts, but a nice citrusy acidity with a bit of chalkiness and orchard fruit. Definitely will revisit! — 11 days ago

Thierry et Pascale Matrot

Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

Initial impressions of green apple, citrus, wet stone and mineral. Same on the palate. Still quite restrained from this excellent white burgundy vintage of 8 years ago. Quite lean for a Premier Cru Meursault and leaner than most good Australian Chardonnays The oak is clearly dialled back to match the power of the fruit in this cooler vintage. A touch of salinity at the finish. — 2 days ago

Amazing to try this. Not the best DRC by any means, but likely one of the better 1994 reds. — 6 days ago

La Brocarde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2013

Nose is dried lilacs.

Palate is soft blackberries. Cassis. Elegant Bramble. Liquid candied lilacs. There is this wood after effect that’s not my jam. Maybe it’ll be better in 5 years but I think I prefer the other cuvées. There is some beauty though.

Bought from fass selections.
