Morey Saint Denis Pinot Noir 2017

Flowery on the nose, slightly earthy but dominating red fruit and a touch oaky. The palate is pretty nice, medium bodied with nice dosage of acidity and fine grained tannins, the finale is nice with red fruit and a touch though of dryness. Pretty good despite the youth, preferred the 2016 and 2014 drank recently, but very glad to have many bottles in the cellar that will sit a few years. 90-91 for now.

Nez avec une touche florale, du fruit rouge, un peu terreux et un peu de boisé. La bouche est avenante, acidité présente mais bien dosée, tannins aux grains fins mais un peu asséchante en finale, compte tenu de la jeunesse. Bien aimé mais moins profond que les 2016 et 2014 bu récemment. Content d’en avoir plusieurs en cave qui attendront.

Domaine Ponsot

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2011

A bright crimson red. A dark cherry smoke earth nose; lingers with meaty pot soil minty notes. Initial taste— raspberry-cherry subtle vanilla flavors. Tannins and cedar softly grip the pallet, but a full body and well structured dry Pinot. Hints of earthy spice, wet leaves linger and should integrate nicely with the tannins and cedar medium plus finish. I’d give it several more years. Pairs nicely with the famous Zuni’s chicken recipe from San Francisco; made from our oven to the Thanksgiving dinner table during the stay at home 2020 year. — 7 days ago

Cuvée Très Vieilles Vignes Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2007

What is it that makes all of Ponsot’s Grand Crus in 2007 so great despite this not being such a great year? This is no exception, a meaty saline effort, pure masculine Pinot. Color is relatively evolved but the wine is vibrant with a good ten to fifteen years of life left. — 18 days ago

Domaine Bachelet-Ramonet

La Grand Montagne Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Medium Ruby, youthful aromas of fragrant red berry fruits, smoky and earthy notes, aged in French oak for 15-17 months. On the palate flavors of raspberry, strawberry and cherry with notes of forest floor. Medium+ acidity with soft tannins on long finish ending with tobacco and earthy character. Very nice now will improve in the cellar! Paired nicely with Roast Capon for Thanksgiving. — 7 days ago

Domaine Hubert Lignier

Morey-Saint-Denis 2016

Dark fruit, coca-cola et terreux, medium to strong bodied, nice balance and a finish a tad rustic and showing the appellation.

Fruits noirs, coca-cola et terreux, corps moyen plus, assez bel équilibre avec une finale puissante et très légèrement rustique. Un vin un peu jeune.

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Last bottle of this that we had was about 2 years ago. I think we may have 1-2 left. Definitely no need to wait more, this is in a prime spot. Absolutely beautiful aromatics. So pure and mouth filling and just the hint of secondary fruit starting to poke through. Extremely balanced with beautiful refreshing acid on the finish. Finish itself goes on for quite a while. Excellent pairing with a buttermilk brined roast chicken. What a treat. — 25 days ago
