Coteaux Bourguignons, Burgundy

Philippe Jouan

Cuvée Thomas Vieilles Vignes Coteaux Bourguignons Pinot Noir 2019

Medium dark rubi robe, nose of wild cherries, flowers, spices and a hint of top soil. Medium bodied and very accessible now, but with 5 to 10 years potential. Its got to be best QPR in red burgundy we got in a long while. — a month ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2015

Pop and pour. Sublime for bourgogne blanc. The reduction has blown off, and this is pure lime, citrus blossom, a touch of vanilla and a hint of almond/hazelnut. On the palate: fantastic acidity, weight and density. More citrus and stone and just caresses the palate. So elegant. At peak, imo. — 8 days ago

Cuvée Les Champans Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Fresh and coy. Strawberry fruit that’s generous but shows pleasant dryness and restraint. Amazingly, this is uniquely (for a rosé), expressive as burgundy pinot. Quite substantial; I think it would age wonderfully. — 10 days ago

I’m thinking I give my other bottle 4 more years and open in 2026.

Cuvée la Demoiselle Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Agree with @Lyle Fass a bit closed atm but showed very well over a few hours. Punches above the humble appellation. Elegant meursault vibes, without any vulgar opulence. Judicious wood, spices, tropical fruit, good concentration. Excellent balance given the vintage. — 16 days ago

needs age but lovely stuff

Domaine François Lumpp

Clos Jus Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Pretty ruby dress with brillance. Open nose, very Burgundian, between red fruits (cherry) and toasted oaky notes. Mouth, consistent with the nose, delivering as you taste many aromatic nuances, undergrowth among others. A lot of freshness yet for this 2015, it can still be drunk and evolve for several years.

Jolie robe rubis avec de l’éclat. Nez ouvert, très bourguignons, entre fruits rouges (cerise) et notes toastées de fût. Bouche en cohérence avec le nez, délivrant à mesure de la dégustation de nombreuses nuances aromatiques sous-bois, entre autres. Pas mal de fraîcheur encore pour ce 2015, il pourra encore être bu et évoluer pendant plusieurs années.

Just reading that it has a ‘Jolie robe rubis’ is like reading Gatsby again. Much thanks to you sir.

Eclat De Calcaire Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Pop and pour. On the nose: sweet apple, vanilla, wet stone, lemon. On the palate: excellent acidity, good density, wet stone, lemon, mabye thins a bit on the close, but nice tangy finish. Good. — 10 days ago

Cuvee Cassaneas Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2019

Gorgeous nose. Haven’t had in 2 years. Lemon, lime, crushed rocks, framing oak that is so subtle and masterful. White flowers and saline. Just a stunningly expressive and pure nose. I like the laser focus of the 19’s aromas. Palate is stunning. Concentrated and super mineral. So juicy, pure and layered. The most mineral and concentrated of the 18/19/20 trio. Perfect balance. I think this is the best bottle I‘ve had of Cassaneas. It’s just so pure and focused. The nose, as it airs gets more broad but doesn’t lose any focus. More earthy elements now. So succulent. Like a perfect stream of BB on one’s palate and so saline. The saline and florals give you such a sense of Chassagne. Stunning.

After 4 hours this come alive (even more!) with gorgeous clear liquid minerals on the nose. Smoke and super complex. Palate is so saline and mineral. Luscious and gorgeously long.

Tremendous bottle. Nose has massive mineral stank with meyer lemon and so many oyster shells. So saline. Deep and enveloping. The Chablis symphony in full effect. Stunning. Young a f on the palate but oh so promising. Perfect balance and terrific tension. Finish is clipped for now but this will grow with air. Luscious finish that is juicy, explosive and so textured. Lovely focus, linearity and hierarchy of flavors. I’ll be back as this airs. Amazing acid structure here. — 8 days ago
