Les Gallimardes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2014

Opened on #nationalwhitewineday. Honeycrisp apples, lychee fruit, dried white flowers, and the signature oily feel to the nose. Medium weight. Juicy yellow apple with slight papaya fruit. Low to medium acidity. Great alternative to Chardonnay. Paired with a honey marinated grilled chicken. — 4 years ago

Hospices de Beaune

Cuvée Arthur Girard Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2008

A slightly stinky, stewed fruit nose presently, but I can just about pick up the cherry core beginning to show itself. Translucent Brown-Ruby in color. Been decanting this for a little while now, will need a lot of time to open. Palate is presently, earthy cherry with acidity still hanging on nicely. Notes will be updated.

Nose stink had mostly subsided, now we have stewed cherry over loamy earth.
Palate is medium-light acidty of ripe cherry, lightly peppered dark chocolate covered cherry, tannins continue to hang on. Not sure if this is past peak, or it needs many more years. This is the oldest Savigny-les-Beaune (10 years past vintage) we've experienced, so I don't have any benchmark to compare against. I still feel this is a pretty solid bottle.
