What a nose of sour cherries, ripe red apple, earthiness mid season cherries and so sappy. So elegant, unctuous and wide. Perfect balance and drinking at peak. No rush but drink up. — 16 days ago

I love when Morel is on and boy is this on. Nose is wooly and hickory based. Sweet acacia as well. Lanolin and lemon flesh and gorgeous mineral. Palate rich, energetic and bracing. Compact and deep with crazy linearity and focus. Like a laser. So clean. This needs air as it is JJ Morel but out of the gates it’s wonderful. So juicy and engaging. Amazing sap. Now with air you get that wet earth thing that is so clear. — 3 months ago

9.5

Wow this is singing. Stunningly deep floral/cherry nose. Mid season cherries that are perfectly ripe and juicy and so clear. Unreal spice and tweed jacket as well. 9.5 nose. Blown away. This drinks so well with 5-6 years on it. Palate is just heaven. Juicy and so decadent with good weight and luscious black cherry and late season red cherry fruit. Sapid and deep. Mineral finish. Outstanding showing. Unreal balance and freshness. It’s a 9.5 right now. Tannins need to smooth out so maybe even a 9.6 with air. — a month ago

Saint-Aubin Pinot Noir 2016

A wild one. Decanted for three hours prior to drinking. Strides the line between beauty and gnarly. I like that balance here, somehow it works — 4 months ago

9.5

Blackberry, floral, black cherry, so deep and almost Syrah like nose. Syrah/Pinot hybrid. Elegant, sappy and pure. Classic Girard balance. Smooth even though I hate this word. So fresh with ripe tannins but provide terrific structure and depth. — a month ago

Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2020

9.3

Nose is lemon, some discreet wood. vanilla extract, lanolin and an intense stony minerality. Sweet lime as well and just stunning aromatic depth and vividness. 9.4 nose. Great cut and almost zero wood on palate and what is there is lovely and complementary to the awesome acidity and freshness. Really long. Such a mineral bomb. Long. Wow this really drinks well for $32? A great wine. — 4 months ago
