Domaine Mee Godard

Les Michelons Moulin a Vent Gamay 2018

🏅 Rating 90+/100 (4,05⭐)

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.

Good address for serious Beaujolais in Burgundian style. It was very youthful indeed, but huge potential sensed right away. Purple color, violets on the nose, touch of oak. Seek for wines with some bottle age.

Partially destemmed, 2 weeks maceration in cement bars, elevage in demi-muids and foudre.

Perrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Nice acidity with some width to it and a little bit of richness, a delicious finish on pears mostly. Good bottle but lacks the zip of the best Perrières.

Beau vin sans être dans la même classe que les meilleurs Perrières, belle acidité et une bouche assez ample avec un peu de richesse, belle finale sur les poires. 90-91

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

Straw gold color. Young and vibrant in the glass. Leesy nose. Notes of citrus, sandstone, apricot and some tan spice. Great fruit and acidity. This is in a good window for consumption but a bottle like this one has many more years in front of it. — 4 days ago

Gerard Schueller

Eichberg Grand Cru Riesling 1997

At 23 years of age, this wine sings with a voice of tropical notes, yet never strays too far into the realm of cloyingly annoying thanks to high notes of tongue lashing acidity. Absolutely gorgeous. Lengthier than the administration of tRump and finishing with so much more grace. — 17 days ago

Domaine Jean Dauvissat Pere & Fils

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Chablisien profile but very rich.

Nose is rich. Almost buttery. Not oaky. Perfumed though in a lovely way. Really pretty.

Palate has green apple. But almost like it’s baked. Some minerality. But not a screamer. Really delicious. Rich on the palate.

A very enjoyable wine if a bit atypical.

As this opens its spectacular. I shouldnt really go crazy on it bc the vintage is so reviled. But it’s amazing. Rich yet elegant. Aromatic. Complex. Wow.

Bought from fass selections.

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1994

Medium gold. Oxidative nose. Notes of caramel apple, toffee, some lemon and some white stone. Lots of fruit in the mouth, but no backbone and lacking in acidity. I wouldn’t call this premox; the wine just comes off as being old and likely is reflective of the vintage. — 4 days ago

Luis Seabra Vinhos

Xisto Cru Tinto Red Blend 2013

Very dark in color. Nose mostly of mineral with little fruit. Red fruit on the palate-strawberry, raspberry and cherry. The acid mineral skeleton sets off the fruit. A well defined presentation. ABV 12.5%. Luis Seabra makes some of the most interesting wines coming from the Iberian Peninsula. 4* — 8 days ago

Mineral and acid driven with bright red fruits and spice. Multi-grape blend from a great new wave wine maker.

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2015

HAPPY Thanksgiving! A Burgundy Thanksgiving part 1. Oysters overnight from Hog Island Oysters!

Double decant and pour. A irresistible pale straw color. On the nose: lemon, floral, toasted almonds, pear, vanilla. Taste: A rich, creamy, big wine with citrus, minerals, spicy oak, crushed stone, and a long honey peach dry finish. Great start. Cheers!

Meursault-Perriéres 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

My best bottle so far, with none of the oxidation present in some previous bottles. On the nose: soft lemon, honey, a touch of oatmeal. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon and apple, honey with a distinc mineral core, and a soft smoky character. Fantastic showing. — 2 days ago
