Domaine Berlancourt

Cuvée Les Champans Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Nose has warmed strawberry, tangerine, apricots and wet roses. Quite expressive tonight, marked improvement from our prior several months earlier.

Palate has under-ripe strawberry, cool Clementine slice, (light) fresh cherries and wet slate. Nice acidity and refreshing finish. Decanted 90m.

Truly, Summer in the glass on a beautiful evening.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Conductor Keith Lockhart is leading an all John WILLIAMS program, with Mr. Williams (hopefully) sharing some of his wonderful stories to accompany the scores.

The program includes selections from..Superman, Heidi, Jaws, The Towering Inferno, Memoirs of a Geisha Oliver, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Olympic Fanfare & Theme, JFK, Schindler's List, The Witches of Eastwick, Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Empire Strikes Back, The Force Awakens and...Star Wars. So to say we're going to be well versed into the JW catalog will be the understatement of the evening for sure!!!

Grand Rêve Vintners / Force Majeure

Force Majeure Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delightful charcoal dandelion blackberry nose. Mineral, dark berry, creme de cassis, espresso taste. Medium long chalk heated finish. Delicious but needs more time in the bottle. Has potential to bring the noise in a couple years. — a month ago

Hunnicutt

Cutt Fearless Red Blend 2018

Just a small blend of dry creek zin, kick ranch syrah, farella merlot, malbec, cab, and of course Pinot. Easy drinking wine for summer sipping. Baking spices come out in full force on opening but mellow out with some air — 11 days ago

Domaine de Montille

Le Clos du Château Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Nose has pear slice, orange zest, various under-ripe stone fruits, pineapple core and yellow flowers; not overly expressive at this time.

Palate has tart pineapple, orange peel, slightly chalky, yellow apple and mild barrel flavors (more new than neutral?). Decent finish, but seems a little closed here as well.

90m decant; Note to future self, check again 2022-23-ish.

Winery Notes:
"Le Clos du Château" is essentially a vineyard of approximately five hectares that sits in front of the Château de Puligny and is entirely enclosed by walls. This facilitates our bio-dynamic farming methods.

Classified as Bourgogne AOC, this vineyard is remarkably well situated in the village on the border of the Puligny-Montrachet vineyards. The deep soil, consisting of silt and clay gives the wine a lovely generosity.
