Aux Cras Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Absolutely stunning. Quite the contrast to the Colombiere, as this is much more serious and structured and the Aux Cras terroir shines through. New oak is more prevalent, of course, but it’s so integrated already and doesn’t get in the way. The nose is incredibly intense and aromas of dark fruit, sweet spice and a wet rock minerality waft from the glass. While this wine is let’s say, more masculine and less sexy than the Colombiere, there is still a seductive Vosne-like perfume that’s so undeniably CLB and lures you in. The palate is powerful and is full of energy, while at the same time remaining focused and seamlessly delineated. To no surprise length is superior to the Colombiere. Totally irresistible now, but boy this will be a knockout down the road. — 6 days ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 | Blind tasted. Só playful! With this wine I was fooled myself... thought it to be a Cru de Beaujolais, because it was expressive and frivolous. — 11 days ago

Les Amoureuses Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Secondary/tertiary aromas emerging adding some spice and umami notes. Pretty raspberry/pomegranate scents combine with a very long and slightly tannic finish. — a month ago

La Colombiere Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2016

Explosive nose full of CLB spice and piercing red fruit and violets. Hardly any reduction here on the pnp. It continued to gain weight and complexity over time. Complexity as well as intensity both on the nose and the palate that is just simply not associated with village wine. It’s so pure, balanced and transparent, and continued to blossom and expand over the course of dinner. Tannins are smooth and fine grained and the finish is very persistent. — 6 days ago

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2017

Comte Liger Belair Vosne Romanée 2017 is such a gorgeous wine. Signature CLB aromatics and expression that always drinks so well young. Of course, it doesn’t have the length of the upper echelon wines in the range, but you may not even notice if  it wasn’t standing alongside the big guns. Outstanding village. — 21 days ago

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Macon-Villages Chardonnay 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these Heritieres offerings. This wine makes me regret that. Zesty acidity and muscle. Not terribly long but definitely refreshing. — a month ago

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Perhaps there’s no more of a polarizing producer in Burgundy than de Vogüé. The 2008 Musigny was served blind, yielding calls from Dujac Bonnes Mares to Drouhin Amoureuses to actually, correctly Vogüé Musigny. The 2008 showed a lot of oak presence and doesn’t have the typical power of Musigny. But what it lacks in power it makes up for in elegance.

It needed a great deal of air, and it often went back and forth from being shut to then being highly expressive and even wafting from the glass, detectable from a good distance away. There is great focus, concentration and intensity, with a long and gripping finish. Very enjoyable, but I think it needs more time to absorb the oak and balance itself out in order to truly reach its potential.
