Les Fichots Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

9.4

My last bottle and age your Fichots! Please! This is glorious. 19 is close to 12 in spirit I think. What a nose. Ebullient, expressive and pure. Black raspberry and black cherry with a spicey earthy note. Floral and underbrush but clear. Just gorgeous and will only get better with air. Air and Fichots work well together. Ahh, the classic Fichots structure. Stoney, straight and long. Always needs an hour to open at any age but the length, balance and wow that length are there. Incredible fruit amplitude and volume. Sappy and pure. Wonderful finesse has arrived after some air. Just a beautiful wine and one of the best values of red burgundy I’ve ever encountered. It’s great every year but some years like 12/19 are better than other. Also 14. — 11 days ago

Cherries and crushed marbles. Seems a little too light. Lacks secondary flavors of interest. — 2 months ago

15 for some reason I do not jive with his wines. I will try the 2015 Fichots in the next weeks.

15 is of a style. @Pinotman /// Andreas not for classicists.

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

9.3

Very pretty nose. Gorgeous, high toned cherry fruit, layered and so pretty. Earth, minerals and some gorgeous tweed jacket, wet grass and mushroom scents. Gorgeous. Really just slamming. Palate is ripe and juicy with lovely concentration and purity. Finish is a bit short initially and dominated by tannins and minerals. But there is lovely mid season cherry fruit that is bright and a lovely complex mid palate and even more complexity on the finish. This seems like it will need a hour. — 5 months ago

Lovely.

Aromatically closed on open.

Plate is old school. A pleasant herbal note.

Great with salmon.

Les Fleurières Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2018

Violet color, plum, violet, blueberry jam. ? Is it PN? Quite juicy. Mistook to take it with Japanese food. This is for the one to enjoy it without food, after dinner. But depending on raising temperature, a bit animal flavor is getting increased. So it would possibly choose lovers. Or enjoy it at lower temperature. 2018 @2280, domaine -, 210519 — 24 days ago

Ray-Monde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

My first Joshua Cooper wine - had to check out the Young Winemaker of the year for 2020 awarded by Gourmet Wine Traveller magazine. Joshua has recently turned 32. This wine was quite rich and dense and a little closed aromatically - obviously quite young. Ripe plum, rose petals, with a little vegetal matter. - a big future ahead. Joshua has had wide experience with Australian wineries and in Burgundy with Domaine de la Vougeraie and Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron. This wine from the cool climate Macedon Ranges with high profile neighbours like Bindi and Curly Flat. — 5 months ago

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019 Vintage - really nice for my friends that think I spend too much money on wine - I submit this wine - about the same price as NZ Sauvignon Blanc but really nice - last Vintage was a little low on acidity but this vintage is solid and inexpensive- really like it for the price — 15 days ago
