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.

Les Frionnes Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Just makes 92.

The texture is oily, gorgeous & luscious. Cream, lemon, lime, green apple, white stone fruits, beautiful chalkiness, lanolin, river stone, flinty notes, grey volcanics, sea fossils, yellow lilies, seems to show a little more used oak, excellent acidity and smartly polished.

Still surprised how Lamy generally continues to fly under the radar for the most part.

Les Macherelles Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Pale lemon with medium+ intensity aromas of stone, tropical and citrus fruits with vanilla oak, spice and bread notes. On the palate ripe apple, pear, melon, creamy lemon fruit flavors with notes of wet stone and warm vanilla oak, medium+ balance with vivid acidity. Long finish ending with nutty oak, baking spice and mineral notes. Very Good but can get better with some bottle age. — 21 days ago

Even with a long double decant this wine was still tight. Eventually it did open up with lovely fruit underneath all the structure. — 5 days ago
