Cornas AOC Syrah 2017

Beautifully balanced Cornas. Powerful dark berries on the nose & palate with some peppercorns on the nose. The palate is layered & complex with savory/briny/smoky character enhancing the fruit. For all the power, the weight is effortless. Pretty stuff. — 2 days ago

@Anthony Lombardi @Josh M you'll see they have gone from Josh's post. Big push to block, ban and prevent these going on right now.

@Martin Sher all instances of these comments were deleted but if you see any more, it's good to know about them. Pretty much straight after they were posted early on Sunday morning the developers were on the case.

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Volnay-Champans 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Decanted for 1.5 hours. It opened up brilliantly. Ruby color with a clear rim and medium viscosity. On the nose it had frank and expressive red fruits, followed by menthol note, rose petals, wet stones and mineral underpinning. You can tell this is a complex and serious wine just by smelling it. On the palate, definitely picking up red fruits, an amazing linear precision and silky mouthfeel on solid tannic structure and a long mineral finish. Dry wine, medium acidity, medium tannins, medium alcohol and medium body. Super delicious and a treat! Domaine Jacques Prieur owns a bit less than 1 acres on the upper slope of the 1er Cru Champans that is one of the larger 1er Cru vineyards in the village of Volnay. Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 19 days prior to fermentation. The wine ages for a total of 17 months in oak barrels. — 4 days ago

Cuvée Saint-Vincent Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017

Even after a couple days retains some good verve. Pretty nice and well balanced. Hits every part of the mouth with nothing overwhelming. Good acid, good slightly rich mouthfeel, nice finish (not overly long though). For the price I’ll take it. — 16 days ago

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Not as good as the 2016 had last year....floral but the fruit was not very present. Perplexed probably in a very weird stage and should not be touched for 5 years at least — 4 days ago

Les Amoureuses Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2001

A really vital, vigorous nose. Bright red and dark fruit. Really dynamic and fresh, with secondary notes coming through. Soulful and vivacious. Wow — 9 days ago

Right? Quite a lot to process in one sitting. It would’ve been nice to spend a bit more time with some of these

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Spectacular wine. Regal. Baked apples, almond paste, caramel, brioche, some citrus. With air it hit another level. Definitely worth decanting. Saved half of bottle for tomorrow. — 10 days ago

Les Genouvrées Bourgogne 2016

Just a wonderful BB which we could honestly drink everyday if we had enough, prior notes still apply:

Nose has pear juice, ripe yellow apple, lightly oxidized green apple peel, baked phyllo dough, partially aromatic white flowers and damp rocks. I always get a natural wine vibe here, without the vinegar-like profile, but it seems alive!

Palate has baked green and yellow apple pastry, crisp acidity yet dense, candle wax begins on the finish and ends with dry granite. Great balance, very lengthy finish, clean and not cumbersome, superb vintage, long life ahead.
