Pale lemon with pleasant aromas of stone fruits, citrus, herb and honey notes. On the palate flavors of ripe peach and pear with lemon citrus, honeysuckle and nutty notes. Medium+ finish, good balance ending with juicy tangy mineral character. Nice! — 9 days ago

Côtes du Jura Poulsard Blend 2018

Notes of sweet juicy cherries, elderflower, and ripe blueberries, graphite, mushroom, and forest floor with hints of clay, leather shop, and powdered sugar in the bouquet. Light-bodied maroon red with sharp tannins with tart cherry, plum, cranberry notes and a strong white tea tannins lingering on the finish. Tannins slightly chalky; needs good decanting. Fun and interesting value to try. — 3 days ago

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanche Marsanne Roussanne 2012

9.3

My contribution for a wine theme of “rosé and non-Chardonnay whites.” I initially thought this would be one of the bigger wines on the table (expecting a bunch of SauvBlancs and light bodied rosés, only for a 2008 SQN The Pontiff to claim that title), and while it eventually fleshed out, it took a while.

This negociant bottling of Chave's Hermitage blanc is made from 100% Marsanne from vine age between 50-60 years. This wine comes mainly from the lieu-dit called Maison Blanche which sits atop the hill of Hermitage.

I decanted this about 2hrs, then put it back in bottle to follow over the next 2-3hrs and it really hit stride towards the end. It poured a deep golden color, as expected. Roasted macadamia nuts and herb crusted yellow fruits on the nose. At first, it was like fine grained bitter honey, banana peel, and melon on the palate and a bit lighter than expected. It gained the traditional waxy component the longer it was open, as well as gained viscosity. The finish rounded out to show a mix of herbs, mineral, along some guava and papaya, and a dose of ginger. I think this is still young, and will be fun to follow over the next few years.

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2016

Cloudy raspberry color that’s so intriguing. On the nose it’s crisp pomegranate, raspberry, and cranberry with subtle notes of smoke and dusty herbs. In the mouth the fruit is snappy and pure, with a pretty crushed rock mineral streak. High acid with sneaky tannic grip on the impressively long finish. Delicate, while remaining structured, and beautifully pure. — 3 days ago

Pommard Rugiens 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

9.4

Superb nose of deep stoniness that only Rugiens can bring. Floral, woodsy and spicey as well. Black cherry pastille. Complex. Unfurling. Black cherry. End of season cherries. Gorgeous purity of fruit on the palate and wonderful finesse and freshness. Very elegant. Chewy and dense but really light on its feet. Awesome fruit stamp on the palate. Sticks with you. Terrific concentration and power and sweet, ripe and stoney tannins. Superb depth. Sappy and so serious. Elite Rugiens. 25 year wine here. Terrific finish and picks up complexity as it airs. Needs a few hours, days, years, decades to unwind. Will be a great trip. — 15 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.
