Les Narvaux Meursault Chardonnay 2015

White flowers, honey suckle, some stone fruit. Good acidity though I would quite call it laser-like. A tad more focus and I would bump it up another notch or two. Great producer and I think more reasonable than some other domaines for the quality. — 19 days ago

Alfio Moriconi Selection Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

Easy finish. Sipping side-by-side with a Boen Pinot Noir blend from California, and we love the old world earthiness. It starts spicy and ends mossy in the best way. — 23 days ago

Les Petits Poiriers Bourgogne Aligoté 2018

9.2

Killer nose of lime zest. Minerals. Lime gum drop. Sappy lemon zest. Hint of discreet oak. Loads of spice and rocks. Palate is energetic and fresh with lovely spring mint, sappy lemon, clean flavors of green apple skins and a long finish. Balanced and very pure. Amazingly clean. Lovely acidity and length. So so good. — 2 months ago

Les Genévrières Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

8.9

Starting to show some age. Also, some pre mox notes. On open not there but now they are def there. After 45 mins open. But not like full blown. Like 10% premox. Maybe 7.5%. Loads of earth and spice. Palate is ok. A but heavy and too rich. This is very mediocre. Hope it’s an off bottle and not the way that is aging. — 21 days ago

Les Vireuils Meursault Chardonnay 2018

9.6

The very rare Vireuils from Chavy. Nose needs 35 minutes to open up. Starts matchsticky, some discreet oak and a ton of minerals. But under that is lime zest, gorgeous minerals and a sense of rockiness. This is a nose of place. Palate is stunning. It has a rainwater chablis thing but is also so refined and well integrated that is speaks of high end winemaking here. Amazing purity. My partner @Matthew Cohen is bonkers for giving this a 9.3 but he is stingy as Burghound. A stunningly pure and deep bottle of Meursault that does have Chablis vibes. Elegance doesn’t even begin to describe this. — a month ago

Les Folatières Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

This is a classic Puligny, vibrant en crispy with some smoke in the nose. I love the nutty and slightly soft bitter flavours. Some granite and smoked butter compared with citrus. — 2 months ago

Les Folatières Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Fantastic wine. Second bottle. First was oxidised sadly. Took it back to the merchant Imperial Wine Company in Bungay uk who replaced it for free! Had it with scallops with chilli dressing followed by hake with garlic butter. Heaven! Deep yellow. Honeyed complex with hint of mineralogy. Long and rounded. Very very good. Will buy some more.? — 12 days ago

Sous la Chapelle Volnay Pinot Noir 2014

I found this rather simple and refreshing, which was in no way a bad thing. Exactly what we wanted for dinner. Lovely juicy just ripe cherry fruit, some lovely earthy notes and charming perfume. Its lightness and tangy acidity paired with finely knit yet caressing tannin made for easy and thoroughly thirst quenching bottle. Pour la table! — a month ago

Les Charmes Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

9.6

Silly great nose. Subtle spices, elegant apples, brown sugar, glorious mineralic spices, pear flesh and green apple skins, even jellied apples, so complex and haunting. Smells so harmonious and complete. The nose is also harmonious and orb like which is what 18 is so good at. Amazing spice and complexity on the palate and big acidity. Highest acidity of any Chavy 18 so far. Incredible inner mouth salinity, like the most gorgeous salt placement on one’s palate ever then straight into just absolutely crazy complexity and freshness. What energy and straight as an arrow. The purity is top notch. The finish just dissipates and the harmony is so gorgeous. What a finish. Minutes at least. Amazing amount of material on the palate and subtle concentration. So saline and juicy. Incredible. — 3 months ago
