Just a phenomenal nose. Wow. Perfect, and so deep. 4D cherries. Black, red, perfect cherries. So deep. Endless cherries. High toned and dark at the same time. Totally amazing. Wow. This is genius. Haunting earth and stoniness. This nose is a 10.0. Just insane. Totally mindblowing. The detail and depth is unreal. Best nose of the 2020 Brissets. The nose smells like GC Vosne-Romanee. Such a special site. Juicy and so dense but bright as well. So sweet and fresh. This just has a tiny berry juicy explosiveness. Sappy and pure and such lift. Finishes so mineral. Wow that opulence in the midpalate leads to unreal juicy fruit on the finish that is so bright, energetic and lifted. Stunning length. The detailed black and red cherry fruit that is blended with the perfect level of opulence. Longest of all the 2020 Brisset reds. Wow. A profound wine of total genius. I am floored. The tannins are so fine, so well knit. so velvet. This will be a 10.0 with age. — 11 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2019

This was delicious, and a winning blind for me. Having a baseline on the table definitely helped. Although less sweet and intense, I felt the JM Millot was in the same genre as the Métras, with similar texture, floral lift, minerality, and red fruit profile. It was the difference in fruit sweetness that gave it away as being from greater Burgundy, whereby Pinot Noir usually appears less sweet than Gamay to me. The village was definitely a lot harder to identify which made sense upon the reveal - when in doubt, it’s probably from one of the lesser communes (or Morey lol!). Fine, fresh, and energetic, I would have drank a lot more of it if not for the other wines on the table. Another to revisit. — 17 days ago

Les Tuyaux Nuits Saint Georges Pinot Noir 2019

This was volatile and unpleasant on opening, but changed dramatically and really opened up with an hour in a decanter. Blackberry and black cherry, warm earth, mineral, ripe but beautifully balanced, silky tannin 😋 — 16 days ago

Côte de Nuits-Villages Pinot Noir 2019

This is excellent stuff and punches well above its weight. Floral and spicy nose with medium body, good fine tanins and lots of minerality / balance. Very dense and structured from the mid to the end, so it will benefit from 4 to 5 years in a good cellar. Great stuff and excellent QPR. — a month ago

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Un vin super jeune mais quel potentiel et quelle matière, très bon maintenant malgré la jeunesse. 93-94

Very young of course but such potential, density and structure, you can still feel this Grand Cru impression when you know it is special.

Needed a whole day to become civilized. Stunning nose of blueberry, blackberry, graphite, granite and dark flowers. Some saddle leather as well. Also wet pottery clay. Palate is juicy and concentrated with terrific energy and thrust. Sappy and fresh with such fine grained tannins. Terrific layering and a soft density. So pure and deep. Elegant like only the best can be. Amazing balance and length. Age for 5-7 more years then watch out! — 8 days ago

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Très beau même si c’est encore un bébé, beaucoup de matière, la structure et la texture d’un GC sont la par contre, bâti pour la route. 92-93

Very nice structure and texture, but still a baby, a little atypical of many 2006 I drank before from many producers.

Domaine Francois Bertheau

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Delish! Lovely sappy cherry fruit. Light in color, but a hint of oak tannins. Starting to show a bit of tertiary development. Bigger and more powerful than I thought it would be. Enjoyed with smoked roasted duck. — 3 days ago
