Jérôme Prévost

Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Pinot Meunier

Disgorged in 2021, this new and ultra rare bottling from Prévost has debuted with the LC19 release comprised from grapes purchased “from sources that emphasize cultivated soils, low yields and full ripeness.” The base wine is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay from Le Mesnil and Pinot Noir from Puisieulx, at the northern end of the Montagne de Reims. Then, there is 20% reserve wine from 2018. While of course very young, it shows incredible depth and complexity today, and quite Burgundian and to no surprise, vinous in its expression. It flaunts a deep caramelized stone fruited profile with salted hazelnuts, curry leaf, gun smoke and lavender. The full bodied and satiny textured palate is just riveting with energy and it gives way to a mineral and saline driven finish that goes on and on. Wowza. — 5 days ago

Les Vaucrains Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Paired with the fourth course, Côtes de Bœuf, and this is a classic pairing. A finely structured N-S-G and perhaps a touch too young yet? Regardless, it was a fantastic compliment to the beef. I think time will coax more out of this one. — 3 years ago

Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

Delectable Wine
9.1

Palish red with a brick rim. Mellow, soil-driven scents of coffee, faded rose, mocha, cedar and truffle, with red berry notes in the background; comes across as complex and mature. Quite suave but a bit peppery and lean on first pour, showing moderate flesh but surprising energy thanks to its firm acidity and minerality. Initially seemed a bit lacking in intensity (perhaps from the vintage's generally high yields) but gained in suppleness and volume with aeration. Finishes with a firm spine of dusty tannins that avoid dryness. I find this quite sexy now with some aeration and would certainly want to drink it within the next several years. Incidentally, Jérôme Faure-Brac did not start vinifying at Drouhin until 2005. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018) — 4 years ago
