Château Saint Floran

Au Pied du Mont Chauve

Cuvée D Le Charmois Saint Aubin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

#ThanksGivingWine

This is a nice surprise. A nice Pinot Noir from Burgundy.

Dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, raspberries, light oak, spices, chocolates, peppercorn, vegetables, herbs, graphite, earth, leather and light barnyard.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Nice length on the finish with spices and raspberries and fine grained tannins.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, and show the tannins and structure.

Thank you Wendy for sharing this with us.

Wine Enthusiasts 92 points.

This 6 year old is still young, and would be better in 5 years.

Better with food than just by itself, right now. Tangy and a little hot at the back of the throat. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$50.

This is a very good wine that has some bottle age and may be consumed now but also has potential for further aging.

Offerus Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Quite nice. Dark fruits. More accessible - even with limited air - than I expected. Still a good bit of freshness / refreshing acidity. At $26 a good value. Tasty. — 3 days ago

Maison Alex Gambal

Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2018

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Nose has under-ripe pineapple, ripe pineapple, warm lemon slice, wet flint, light oak/vanilla and lemongrass.

Palate has cooked lemon slice, crushed flint, wet sandstone and pineapple core with a medium finish.

An infant for sure (current release), but made for a solid pairing to a Thanksgiving meal, it worked great with all the flavor diversity on our plates. Oh man, 2018 Burgundy is going to be wonderful.

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Just received, pop and pour just to taste one, rich, lush and powerful, with time in the glass and a harsh decant, it opens beautifully to aromas of Syrah such as pepper, violets and that incredible floral scent, very nice even if way too young and with the oak that is a little too present for now. 91-92 for the potential

Dès réception, j’en ouvre une, bien que beaucoup trop jeune. C’est très bon malgré tout, très Syrah après un peu d’air et un coup de carafe sans ménagement, violettes et poivre. Certes le bois est très présent pour l’instant. Puissant et structuré, texture riche, superbe potentiel, content d’en avoir accumulé plusieurs. 91-92+ pour le potentiel.

Belle acquisition

Domaine Rimbert

Sur la Plage Colombard

Very slight bouquet. A whisper of lemongrass and acacia palm.

Chill to the max for me. Love the pandan leaf subtle note with an undercurrent of pineapple. The fruit flavors are muted and work with the acidity, highlighting and letting the minerality shine.

Stellar.

Hommage à "Marguerite" Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

Lithe and delicate. Subtle fruit aromas/flavors of lemon, pear, underripe white peach. Perhaps some quiet jasmine notes as well. Winemaking technique certainly dominates with notes of sulphur compounds in addition to perceived SO2 on the nose and palate (knocking it down a peg in my opinion). Struck flint, crushed stones and gun smoke under deft barrel notes. Very refreshing however, quite lovely with more and more aeration. — 8 days ago

Saint-Romain Pinot Noir 2018

This 2018 shows again the great value these wines have from Alain Gras. Such a nice bottle of fruity, balanced and delicious Pinot that ends with a slightly tangy and sappy delicious finish. 90

Un beau 2018 qui démontre encore la qualité des vins de Alain Gras pour le prix. Un vin équilibré avec une finale salivante sur les petits fruits rouges légèrement acidulés. Très bien.

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

To no surprise intense PYCM reduction dominates initially, before a sufficient decant has it give way to exotic stone fruits, citrus blossoms, minerals and some tertiary character. It has great texture, tension, balanced acidity and midpalate intensity that leads to a focused and precise finish. Few can showcase St. Aubin as well as PYCM ✨ — 13 days ago
