Cote Nuits

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Les Feusselottes Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Wow. Great wine with all the tell tale stuff of the great cote de nuits reds. Dark berries, violets, spices and a hint of tobacco on a medium bodied, elegant, complex, long wine. Lots of density too, and tension. Was delicious but will be better off in 3 to 5 years. — a month ago

What fruit! Stanky red and black cherries. Great clarity and so vivid. Stunning Cabottes. Great tangy black cherry fruit and terrific intensity and purity. Really clear vivid fruit. Nose also has gorgeous florals and earth. 19 reds rock. Such freshness and volume. Sweet and ripe tannins. Seriously great value burg here. Awesome gamey element coming through with air. — 7 days ago

Clos des Variolles Monopole Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pop and pour, 2 hrs slow ox. You could wait until 2027 as the drink-by dates suggest, but as a 17, you'd be missing out: this is fairly generous, and rather open (I'm drinking the 17 before the 16 for example). On the nose: lovely soft mulberry, gevrey earth, musky perfume, soft spice, wild strawberry. On the palate: primary, but so compelling: excellent acidity, tangy pomegranate, wild strawberry, loads of spice. and soft tannin on the finish. Fabulously energetic and so drinkable. An unheralded gem of Gevrey? Unquestionably best young vintage I have tasted. — 4 days ago

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Vaucrains Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

Almost chambolle-like bright perfume in the nose with lifted red cherry, white flowers, sappy sweet notes. On the palate the earthiness and poised balance roots it in NSG. I love how Chevillon makes wine. The nose is the star. — 9 hours ago

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair

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. — 17 days ago

Always a value and in 19 a superstar value. Deep, penetrating nose. Huge black cherry, dark red cherry, cherry skin, backed up by unreal minerality. So clear and deep. Much more serious than the Cabottes. Spice and earth. The full Burgundian symphony. Such a sappy nose. 9.4 nose. Just brilliant! Wow, what concentration and purity. Unreal. So sappy and pure but so fresh. Insane tiny berry fruit intensity. So so good. Structured as well and seems slightly clipped on the back end for now. But air will surely cure that. As I just took a sip the finish is extending and expanding as is the back palate and that gamey note comes through. Best version of this ever. A benchmark. — 7 days ago

Always a favorite and it smokes in 19. Nose starts out shy and buttery. Some minerals peeking out. But all in all one smells the density but also senses it’s holding back. But that palate brings it. Electric, retesting, mineral and deep. Some apple fruit and also some citrus but the texture, freshness and mineral complexity tell the story here. Terrific length. Best since 14. A brilliant version of this. — 11 days ago

Cherry, tropical woody notes (sandalwood), strawberry compote, forest floor. Good stuff but coming in a little “warm” on the palate. Muscular and tannic though though missing some freshness. — 10 days ago
