Jean-Michel Guillon & Fils

1er Cru- La petite Chapelle Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir

Was third wine in tasting with two RSVs. 2013 was still fairly fruit forward - a bit too much for me. It is full bodied and bright. Much fuller than the two RSVs. Will like to try it again in 5+ years. — a month ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.8

When I tasted the 2018 Pontet-Canet in barrel I described it as a "freak of nature." The 2018 is more than that, it is a freak of nature. Made from yields of just ten hectoliters per hectare, the 2018 possesses off the charts richness, phenomenal balance and head-spinning intensity. Crushed red berries, flowers, mint, cedar and rose petal saturate the palate in a Pauillac of breath-taking richness. The silkiest of tannins frame the phenomenally pure, long finish. This is a towering achievement from the Tesseron family and former Technical Director Jean-Michel Comme, who together spearheaded biodynamic farming in Bordeaux and built the present-day estate around a philosophy of non-interventionalist winemaking. In 2018, grapes were crushed solely by hand. Because of the tiny yields, the entire production was vinified in Pontet-Canet's new smaller concrete vats. All winemaking was done manually, without the aid of external temperature control or electricity. Put in another way, if Lalou Bize-Leroy made Bordeaux, it would taste like this.

Domaine Jean-Michel Gaunoux

Meursault Premier Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Old 2011. Well... Really great. Still young and fresh, good sapidity and a gently merde de poule at nose. Great way to spend your money. — 3 months ago

Château Villa Bel-Air

Graves White Bordeaux Blend 2005

2016 vintage. 65% Sauvignon blanc with 35% Sémillon. At the time this estate was owned by Jean-Michel Cazes (Lynch Bages and more recently Haut-Batailley), but the current owners are the Groupe Ballande (Bordeaux négociants who also own Prieuré Lichine and Baret). Exotic fruit and a hint of flowers. Round and ripe with enough acidity in this warm vintage. Good length with impressions of vanilla. Good value. — 3 months ago
