Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Initially, and not so surprisingly, tightly wound not very giving. After allowing some time in the decanter it turns the corner after about 90 min. Reduction and woodsmoke blows off and fruit comes to the forefront. You smell, you immediately know it’s Grand Cru from the depth of aromas that have finally revealed themselves. After about 2 hours in the decanter, they become explosive and jump from the glass, unquestionably of GC intensity. The glass becomes hard to put down.

Red and blue fruit, red florals, créme de anglaise, exotic spices. Oak is detectable but it’s not obtrusive. There’s good power and serious concentration, but at the same time it has such elegance and refinement. I’ve had mixed experiences with Grand Cru (or of the ‘equivalent’) 14’s. Some, like Fourrier CSJ, Dujac Malco and Rousseau Charmes, show better initially and then kinda shut down. This wine, similar to Bachelet Charmes (shockingly), unfurls over time and just continues to get better and better and more giving. Of course, the palate needs some time catch up with the nose, as is common with 14’s I’ve had, but this is definitely one of the more balanced all around from the vintage I’ve had at this point. For the most part, 14’s seem to be in a great place right now. I really like the vintage.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

Cherries, roses, damp soil, finish a bit clipped and astringent so needs food but overall very solid. I won’t even give it the backhanded “good for the category” compliment—it’s just good, no qualifier necessary. Who says you can’t age basic Burg? — 2 months ago

I'm right with you, good stuff ages well, regardless of classification.

Vieilles Vignes Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Tasted blind. Phenomenal bouquet that easily led us to Grand Cru Burgundy. I had the region being a Morey St. Denis GC and originally felt it was 2014 but changed my guess to 2010. Should have trusted my gut! The wine was shockingly open, so giving and not as primary as I would have expected. Superb density and finesse and so silky on the palate. Fantastic. — 2 months ago

Clos de la Boutiere Maranges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

As always, a delicious easy going, fresh, fruit driven and soft tannins wine, red fruit, strawberries, cherries, some spices, slightly tart finish but always delicious.

Fruits rouges, fraises, cerises entre autres se retrouvent au nez comme en bouche, frais, énergique, du fruit à revendre, se boit si facilement, toujours très bon. 90-91

A skoche or an iota? That’s the eternal question. Or maybe a smidgeon?

@Max Kelly I’m one for two with Roulot Aligote but the good one was excellent indeed. Leaner style, like Ramonet. Maybe I need another list for that style...

@Max Kelly The Anne Boisson style seems to split the difference between the two styles
