Réserve Caveau Moulin-à-vent Vieilles Vignes 2009

Pretty concentrated ruby dress. Evolved nose evoking Burgundy. In the mouth a beautiful smoothness, concentration, between evolved notes and fruit still very lively. A pretty bottle full of refinement. It can be drunk on its own.
Can still age 5/10 years, maybe more.

Jolie robe rubis concentrée. Nez évolué évoquant la Bourgogne. En bouche une belle onctuosité, de la concentration, entre notes évoluées et fruit encore bien vif. Une jolie quille pleine de raffinement. Ça se boit tout seul. Peut vieillir encore 5/10 ans voir plus.

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2019

Generally consistent with my last notes, but drinking this side by side with the Cote du Py does bring to attention the differences in structure. At this stage, the Les Charmes has a slight edge over the Cote du Py for me due to it’s lacier texture and distinct mineral streak. The Cote du Py looks brutish even against this wine. A fascinating study of Beaujolais terrior. — 2 days ago

love the eponym!

Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Wow! Couleur ne montre aucun signe de fatigue. Arômes fines d'agrumes, nectarines, fleurs blanches. Une bouche parfaite, finesse, fraîcheur, élégance, belle acidité, équilibre et classe, surtout une finale interminable. 95-96

Colour shows no sign of aging. Such a classy nose and wine, light citrus, white flowers too, such class, elegance and balance, so fresh and deep too, extremely long finish.

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.

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2019

Structured, mouth-filling, and quite sweet fruited. Prefer the Eponym at this stage, but just ever so slightly. — 2 days ago

Les Ruchottes Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2016

Continuing to dip into 2016 white burg at the top level and continuing to be pleased. Surely one of the most coveted and iconic Ramonet plots, albeit young, 2016 Ruchottes is very impressive tonight, proving the frost laden growing season is becoming a year of terroir over vintage. At first perhaps eerily opulent, it continues to focus with air and flaunts an explosive bouquet of stone fruit, citrus oils, wet stones, white flowers and toasty oak with Ramonet spearmint that comes in after some aeration. The palate is expansive, dense and concentrated with an elegant texture and just enough citrusy acids to support its imposing richness. If I were to nitpick I’d like more length but this is a great bottle. — 9 days ago

L'arpent des Vaudons Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Pale yellow with aromas of ripe white stone and citrus fruits with dried floral grassy notes, aged on lees for 5 months. On the palate flavors of rich apple and lemon with crisp acidity and pronounced mineral notes. Medium+ finish, ending with creamy citrus, herb and flinty mineral character. Good now and will improve over next several years! — 6 days ago
