Vieilles Vignes Volnay Pinot Noir 2019

9.1

A lovely burg showing well out of the gate with floral and wood aromatics and bramble fruit on the plate. Suave and textured, with good concentration and a persistent finish. Some obtrusive oak on the finish that a few years should hide. — 2 months ago

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

This was a surprise. The body was lighter than I expected, the nose practically busting with forest floor and dusty ripe red fruits, dusty tannins, but for this meal it paired perfectly. Drank at Arnaud’s in New Orleans. #pinotforpresident — 2 months ago

Les Belles Filles Pernand-Vergelesses Chardonnay 2018

Chilled this burgundy felt restrained, minimal, and one dimensional. As it opened up though, paired with a delicious bouillabaisse, escargot and the best foie gras I’ve ever had, thus started to really come into its own. Medium body, a refined minerality but with delicious notes of crisp apple, baking spice, and an some richer, pastry like notes on the finish, this wine truly came into its own with some warmth and time. Not too rich, not too dry, a perfect balance of crisp fruit, minerality, and baked richness for shellfish dishes with a tomato base. — 2 months ago

Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.

After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir.

8.9

Open knit and friendly, with good weight and mouth presence, fine tannins and fresh finish. Well defined blackberry on the palate, with hints of strawberry and a rose petal finish. Fruit fades a bit the next day leaving oak tannin and a slightly dry finish. Overall a very pleasant wine , drinking well In It’s youth. — 3 months ago
