So good. What a nose. Sopping red cherries, ripe and minty and so deep. Spice, minty foresty earth. Some paprika. So good. So unique. So Morel. Palate is ripe, juicy and loaded to the gills with sweet cherry fruit against a firm mineral background but seriously stacked with fruit. Balanced and pure. Rustic tannins, crunchy and sappy. Juicy. As Jeru the Damaja says, “Rough and rugged, shine like a gold nugget.” — a month ago

Nose starts off quiet. But then slowly unfurls. Insanely perfumed. Gorgeous. White flowers, green apples, intense crushed rocks, so pure, so lifted. Palate is just so complete. Balanced like it is vibrating on it’s own plane. Elegant and super pure with a big mineral core. Showing only green apple skin fruit at the moment. But mega juicy and bright with terrific structure. The final one and it’s as great a swan song as I’d ever want. Salty and much longer that it should be finish. Terrific depth and concentration. Truly the sum of its parts wine. There is a completeness and uniqueness to this wine that is a direct result of the sum of its parts that I’ve never seen reproduced anywhere in Burgundy. — 2 months ago

Signargues Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhône Blend 2018

Wafts of strawberry salt water taffy.

Medium bodied with finesse, Thai basil, gravel, pomegranate pithe, a hint of navel orange zest.
The tannins and acidity work wonderful together, a balance of a really great, well rounded wine for the price.

The final white of JJ Morel I will ever taste. First one that is not with him thanks to Covid-19. It’s bittersweet. Just an amazing nose. So bright. So high toned. Citrus jelly. Smoke. Hickory. Hazelnuts. Saline. Inside of a fancy chocolate found in some exotic assortment box. The one you have to ask “what’s in this?” Palate is electricity. Impossibly complex. Stunning deep and very expressive minerality. Perfect supernal balance. Big attack. Long and gentle finish. Amazing mid palate. Finish is super zesty. Pure and layered. The sum of the parts in full effect here. A wine of indescribable genius. A swan song like no other. — 2 months ago

La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

9.6

The final St. Aubin from the master. He’s hanging it up and it makes me sad. What a nose. Just the most inviting white burg one can imagine. It smells like a scene in nature. Some herbs. Some forest. Some moss. Some soil. Some stones. Some green apple. A medley of spice fights through after a few minutes. More green apple. Middle eastern spices like cardamon, curry and clove. Maybe white pepper as well. The palate delivers and more on the promise of the nose. Amazing power and depth. Prodigious sap and purity. Dreamy but substantial structure. Terrific length and texture. So so long and intensely mineral. What a wine. Each sip is a total experience. Outstanding. Will age 15+ years. Has serious density and structure. — 2 months ago
