Le Mons Helios Monthelíe Pinot Noir 2012

Lyle Fass

Have not had since November 2018. This is in a great place now. Unreal forest floor, dead leaves and mega sous bois. Just gorgeous and showing signs of age. Mint. Super complex and so old school. Wonderful. Incredible minerality. Palate is still much more youthful than the nose suggests. Sappy, sweet, structured and deep. Unreal finesse, breadth and concentration. Tiny berry fruit intensity. Sweet tannins and awesome length. Really really long. Im sure air will really make this elite. Easy 9.5 right now — 5 days ago

I was just looking at my bottles of this wine/vintage last week and wondered if it was in the drinking window yet. Looks like the answer is yes! Will have to give one a try soon!

La Taupine Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Wow, this has definitely entered its early drinking window. The rusticity of past btls has dissipated. On the nose: sweet cherry, smoke, soft rose/pomegranate and a suggestion of wet leaf. On the palate: damp earth, wet leaf, strawberry, soft coffee, fantastic density supported by acidity that kicks in on the end, perfectly attenuated tannin that add a lovely structure to the finish. — 4 months ago

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Lyle Fass

Been ages since I’ve had this. Maybe since the cellar in 2015! Nose is buttery and rich but also mineral. A bit simple. Palate is rich, ripe and energetic. Delicious and goes down easy. Nice finish. Longer than expected. Nice. Good texture as well. Very well knit. Good complexity and freshness with air. Damn impressive. — 5 months ago

Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2015

Wow. One is almost sweet flowers. Like lime flowers. Mineral.

Palate is mineral. Perfect fruit. Scintillating. A perfect hint of tartness.

Bought from fass selections.

2015 vintage. First vintage under new ownership (Kévin Labatut and Florent Zanetti). Merlot and Cabernet Franc (50/50).Intelligent winemaking with gentle extractions. Red fruit, subtle spices with a hint of mint. Impeccable balance with ripe red fruit, freshness and fine-grained tannin. Great value at 12 euros. Highly recommended. Abv. 14%. — a month ago
