Chateau des Quarts (Dominique Lafon & Olivier Merlin)

Clos des Quarts Monopole Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2012

Pop and pour, notes from 45 min open. Lovely, and my best bottle..also my last '12. On the nose: lemon, soft ginger, a touch of honey, some sour apple. On the palate: excellent acidity and density, mirroring the nose. Paired with baked whole branzino, stuffed with onions and herbs...yum. — 22 days ago

Meursault-Goutte d'Or 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

Still young, needs time to open up and it does open, full, rich and large on the palate, great length. Delivered with time in the glass.

Très beau après du temps dans le verre, riche, plein, large, profond, longue finale. 92-93

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Forest floor, mushrooms and überripe plums in a peek-a-boo nose. Tremendous, consistent drive from intro palate to and thru the finish. Verry polished and ripe. Medium+ bod. If blind tasting this, would have guessed Napa with a small % of mountain fruit. Some tannins afoot but they’re not currently prominent-more fruit forward. First go-round with this producer. An auspicious first impression. It would be difficult to find a decent Bordeaux smoother than this. I ain’t signifying a 30 year lifespan-or even a 20 spot-but it’s ready to party now. Only had a handful of 2018 Bordeaux and they’ve all been fruit forward…detecting a trend there. — a day ago

Volnay-Champans 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Magical nose, very aromatic, complex, elegant with layers and layers. The palate is soft, classy, silky, texture is great, length is impressive, the tannins that have no more grip though and make the palate slightly less magical than the nose. Great experience. 93-94

Un nez magique, complexe, fin, élégant avec des couches et des couches d’arômes. La bouche est fine, élégante et a beaucoup de classe, les tannins sont totalement fondus mais la texture est belle et soyeuse. 93-94

Le Petit Saint Vincent Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2018

Day 2: Cola and dark cherry nose, with graphite and smoke. Underripe currant leaking out as well. Gritty tannin with cranberry and cherry fruit. Chalky minerality. Lingers well, plenty of dimension. — 14 days ago
