Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2001

Light garnet-ruby. Rusty, musty nose. Olive brine, dried blueberry. Long, juicy, bloody palate, with reverberating acidity and prickly tannins. Hints of roasted nuts and cocoa. So alive on the palate. A real treat. — 3 days ago

Look at your profile. This is an outlier. I feel same about Cote Rotie as a “real treat”.

@romo Fair enough. I def think of Cote Rotie as a special occasion wine but not an outlier.

Les Brouillards Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass
9.4

Superb tiny berry fruit intensity on a slab of stones. Superb mineral perfume. Beautiful mashed dark and light red flowers. Stunningly elegant and precise. Dizzying. I love Volnay. Palate is structured and so deep and initially a bit closed. Complex, stoney, sappy and superbly concentrated. Fruit is there but has a major mineral grip on it like so many 18 1er Crus at this early stage. Clean, compact and precise but really in need of 5 years. Now while 17 was wide open young this will not be. But what a wine. Amazing palate presence. Incredible fruit. — 24 days ago

Les Pezerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass
9.4

An epic epic Pezerolles. Unreal nose. Superbly floral and just so gorgeous. Red cherry, black cherry, floral again, hint of licorice. So stunningly fragrant. Just bright and lifted. Palate is just oozing with gorgeous pure fruit. Red fruit driven with a black fruit edge to it. Sappy and so complete. What a long finish. Stoney aromas after some air. Palate has melty tannins that are so fine. Seems a bit closed initially but the super long finish makes me think this has more to say. 9.3 for now. I’ll be back.

This opened up after air end a day and became much more integrated. It’s a big wine in need of age but a smokeshow. 9.3 to 9.4 but with age will be 9.6

Clos de la Cure Pommard Pinot Noir 2018

9.3

Nose is tight out of the gates. Some cherry cola, dustiness. Pulverized rock dust. Really quiet at the moment but I have faith. 18’s are built like brick houses. More aromas coming but all mineral. Fruit is buried here. Palate is super closed. Wow. This will need mega air. Like mega air. Huge grippy tannins and terrific fruit on the long finish. Easily a 1er Cru length finish. But this needs mega air. My score will rise. As this air the fruit expands on the palate. Massive power, depth and concentration. Exceptional length. Nose picks up a hint of licorice. 9.2 to 9.3 after 20 minutes. — 24 days ago

Domaine Michel Niellon

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1990

Tasted blind, from two combined bottles. Yellow gold. Dirty lemon nose. Notes of lemon creme, wet stones, some dirt, some marzipan and vanilla, and a little honeysuckle. Rich in the mouth. Good structure with softened acidity. The unique nose of Niellon is easy to identify... Guessed 86 Batard. Great juice. — 2 days ago

Clos de la Truffière Les Chaumées Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Intense reduction initially, which with a sufficient decant blows off to reveal ripe yellow apple and pear, pastry cream and hints of baking spices. Great concentration, midpalate depth and balanced acidity with a long and intense finish. Great stuff. — 10 days ago
