Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Nose is lovely. Dusty red cherries, licorice and cherry flower as well. Lovely earth and wet stones. Cooling black cherries as well with some air. Juicy and concentrated with awesome purity and freshness. So balanced with lovely elegance. Long finish and great sap. Some bramble as well on the nose after some air. Terrific intensity. Really showing well. — 2 days ago

Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass
9.3

Classic Fichots nose. Dark fruits, earthy and sinewy. Also watermelon and strawberry. Feral and wild with major sous bois. Spice and saline. So much terroir. Awesome. Dark, juicy and structured with ripe, substantial and velvety tannins. Sappy and wild palate that needs 3-4 hours to come together but a super promising young Fichots. As it airs it gets more fleshy and defined. More later. — 20 days ago

Clos du Roi 1er Cru Beaune Pinot Noir 2018

9.4

Terrific vintage for this wine. Nose of deep cherries. Mid season, black and sour. A real melange. Amazing clarity and shape to the nose. So dazzling in its vividness and compactness. Amazing minerality. Just so pointed and refined. A sense of refinement you don’t see often in Girard wines or this Cru. Awesome texture and juiciness. Black cherry, such purity, balance and compactness. Ripe and deep tannins and just perfect fruit. Like perfect ripeness and backed up by great energy and minerality. This is very impressive. There is great sap and such vivid black cherry fruit. Will age for a decade at least. So long. Compact. Masterful. — 22 days ago

Beaune fruit is great, I find it more weighty of a Pinot than most other locales in Burgundy.

@Severn Goodwin agreed. Weightier and so compact. So many great sites.

Aloxe-Corton Pinot Noir

Great wine. Smelly fragrant with lots of sweet berries. Tastes great as well. Didn’t take too much time to open up after opening. Lots of sweet berry tastes and after tastes. — 6 days ago

Les Vergelesses Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass
9.3

Massive hugely fruited nose. Dirt, Sous bois and minerals in the background. Massive mid season cherries. Some nice spice. Very clean and pure. Palate is juicy, ripe and has appealing dark red cherry and black cherry fruit. Lipsmacking acidity and freshness. One of the more brooding Les Vergelesses I’ve had. Really sappy but seems closed on the back end. Lovely length and persistence. Great texture and compactness. Massive fruit. More to come. — 20 days ago
