'Cuvee du Saule' Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The first of a series of 9 Grand Crus from Gevrey Chambertin from the 2016 vintage. Identities of the 9 wines known but not the order of service. Tasted blind. The first thing of note is the very groovy modernist non Burgundian label from Ponsot. Never seen anything like it. As far as the wine itself - Mid Ruby in colour. Muted nose even after vigorous swirling. On the palate dense and rich with sweet Medium plus tannins. I thought at the beginning of this group that if the Corton group was so good how great will this bracket from Gevrey be? — 10 months ago

Never come across this new label
It must be a super minuscule parcel from the GC.
I am interested👌

Louis Bovard

Salix Chenin St. Saphorin 2016

Color : White
Wine estate : Louis Bovard
Designation : Lavaux
Name : Salix - Chenin Blanc
Country : Switzerland
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Louis Bovard makes bio-dynamic culture and has introduced in the Lavaux new grape varieties such as Chenin Blanc. The name of Salix comes from the Latin word meaning the willow, with which one braided the branches to make baskets of vintage. A golden yellow straw robe with a nose of citrus, pineapple and mineral. Once in the mouth, the explosion of flavor with a nice acidity and a taste of citrus and apple. The final is excellent, it remains in the mouth and perfectly accompanied a fish.
Louis Bovard fait de la culture bio-dynamique et a introduit dans le Lavaux des nouveaux cépages comme ce Chenin Blanc. Le nom de Salix vient du terme latin signifiant le saule, avec lequel on tressait les branches pour faire des paniers de vendange. Une robe dorée jaune paille avec un nez d’agrumes, ananas et minéral. Une fois en bouche, l’explosion de saveur avec une belle acidité et un goût d’agrumes et de pomme. Le final est excellent, il reste bien en bouche et accompagné parfaitement un poisson.

Montagny 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Great balance of oak and earth, fruit notes were there, acid gave a good lift. — 6 years ago
