Savigny-Les-Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

Last night's wine we opened on my weekend journey in Burgundy was the 2017 Louis Jadot Savigny-les-Beaune Pinot Noir.

On the nose there is nice fruit, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, spice, herbal notes, menthol, oak and forest floor.

On the palate are beautiful rrd fuit notes of tart cherry, raspberry, strawberry, red currant, clove, spices, oak, minerality and earth.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that smoothly move into a medium to long red fruit and earthy finish. Let's continue to have a wonderful weekend and even though we seem to be on the precipice of moving out of this pandemic please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Medium lemon with aromas of rich stone fruits with subtle toasty notes. On the palate apple and pear with earthy nutty notes, gentle spice, great mouthfeel on long finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Nice! — 7 days ago

Embarrassingly - never had this. Their quality is ridiculous. Will seek this out.

Clos Saint Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Dark rubi robe, aromas of dark berries, crushed flowers and a hint of cinnamon. Brood and rich body but very complex too. This is great stuff and requires 5 years more to show its best. Enthusiastically recommended. — 23 days ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2007

I still remember the first time I drank a Cristal, when a friend popped open a bottle (that he bought duty-free on a trans-Atlantic flight) at his SoHo apartment some 20+ years ago. Wasn’t much of a wine drinker then, but how wine could taste this good?!

Though from a lesser grand vintage, the 07’ did not disappoint. The purity of the fruits and chalky minerality are second to none. Crystal clear acidity provide great tension throughout. Graceful textured full body.

58/42 PN/Ch. Disgorged in 2015.

Les Pentes Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

9.6

Been 2 years+ since I’ve had this. Nose is gorgeous now. Nose is honeyed almonds and steel wool. Nuttiness as well. Sense of richness but also super umami notes. Chenin is a major umami grape. Confectionary honeycomb on the nose. So gorgeous and such clarity. Really a knockout nose. Palate is clear, vivid and has terrific, knock you on your ass acids. Tangy and also really leaves an imprint on the palate. Fantastic purity and presence. Really really long. Brown sugar on the nose now. A sick sick wine. Maybe best chenin I’ve had from Michel Chèvre. — a day ago
