Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Lyle Fass

Wet wool, green apple and minerals. Smells rich. Palate is ripe, rich and racy. Green apple skins and awesome minerality and richness. Like a chardonnay drop in your mouth. So good. Pure and vibrant and also some fat. Great showing. — a month ago

Nice! Almost pulled the S-A 2018 tonight, opted for older Chablis.

@Severn Goodwin this was great but would only keep 1-3 more years. SA much longer

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 — 6 months ago

Maison Champy (Domaine Champy)

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1720

Smoked earth and truffle and seared beef, raspberry and blackberry with graphite and red cherry flex big terroir muscle showing baked poppyseed, roses, burnt rubber and a grain of mint, aromatically. Apocalyptic, ecstatically. Raspberry-cherry reduction with a rich cranberry tart, morel, smoked cherry and red currants, fig and allspice; endlessly transmogrifying into nuanced decadence. Amazing, seductive, bold.

Aulerde Großes Gewächs Riesling 2014

Oops, forgot I had this in April. Drank alongside a '14 Roulot Bourg Blanc, and paired with a pasta with morel and scallion (light) cream sauce, with some seared scallops on top. This was far and away the better pairing, but it was fun to contrast the two '14s. With the cream sauce, the perceived acidity was perfect for my palate, so an excellent showing, really showcasing the minerality and citrus. Yeah it's Tuesday, but many pandemic-related restrictions were eased today here in cali. What that actually means remains to be seen... — 2 years ago

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

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. — 5 months ago

Was best on day 2

Domaine Morel

Les Pieds Sur Terre Saint-Savin Chardonnay 2014

Early on, even with a significant chill, there’s quite a nose. VERY funky, rooty, vegetal nose. Like a somewhat musty broom closet, fresh cut green pepper, or freshly dug up roots, with hints of yellow fruit, crisp apple and slight citrusy notes emerging as it warms and opens up. It’s medium bodied, creamy though, with a silky texture and crab apple, starfruit, chamomile, and citrusy acidity that ends in an almost menthol-y and minerally finish. The citrus is still impressive considering it’s almost 10 years old, it honestly could’ve been bottled a year ago! This one is interesting and the palate lingers forever! Jura, whew! — 7 months ago

Domaine Roulot

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2014

Actually slightly disappointing for a (Roulot) '14. Drank alongside a '14 Wittmann Aulerde GG, and paired with a pasta with morel and green onion (light) cream sauce. Riper nose than I expected on a '14, with very, very soft noble reduction, but good minerality and lemon. In a very good place, but the Aulerde was the better pairing with the food by a longshot. Good density, but slightly thin on the finish. I think I preferred the '13 edition to this one... — 2 years ago
