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

Nose is cherry lipstick. Elegant earth.

Palate is perfect cherry. Some mere hint of bitterness. So fresh. As it opens cherry licorice. Snap this is good.

Man this is fucking well made. 9.7 on that scale. Balance. Finesse. So great. You can serve this to a billionaire. If they get burgundy they will love it.

Very rich. That’s the vintage. I prefer this wine in lighter years so the aromatics can shine through but I must admit that this is pretty delicious. Bought from Fass Selections — 4 years ago

Nose starts off quiet. But then slowly unfurls. Insanely perfumed. Gorgeous. White flowers, green apples, intense crushed rocks, so pure, so lifted. Palate is just so complete. Balanced like it is vibrating on it’s own plane. Elegant and super pure with a big mineral core. Showing only green apple skin fruit at the moment. But mega juicy and bright with terrific structure. The final one and it’s as great a swan song as I’d ever want. Salty and much longer that it should be finish. Terrific depth and concentration. Truly the sum of its parts wine. There is a completeness and uniqueness to this wine that is a direct result of the sum of its parts that I’ve never seen reproduced anywhere in Burgundy. — 2 years ago

La Chatenière Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading just one wonderful piece, MAHLER (Symphony No. 3), accompanied with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus.

We're revisiting some producer bottles from our late Spring France vacation earlier this year.

Stunning nose of pineapple core, wildflower honey and wet stones, I'm not sure I can actually describe all the magic happening in this glass. Palate is evolving with each sip, under-ripe pineapple, over-ripe pear, watery honey, light oak touch and wet slate dust. Just amazing!

Photos of beautiful late Spring (2018) biodynamic vineyard rows in Saint Aubin, my winemaker crush Jean Jacques Morel giving us the low down inside his living cellar and our bottle of the evening.

We only enjoyed about 1/3 of the bottle, saving for a day or so to see where this goes, notes will be updated.

Les Genouvrées Bourgogne 2016

Picking up a juiced pear on the nose today, but otherwise prior notes still apply:

Nose has 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. We love you Jean-Jacques.
