This was so damn good. Perfectly developed yellow fruit and a striking acidity. — a month ago
A proud hardliner as the artwork on the front label suggests, which more often than not, has proven to be a red flag for what’s to come in the bottle. Fortunately, this was superb and the WOTN for me. Salty, fresh, and juicy. Needed some time to open up to reveal notes of pear, pineapple, candied ginger, and hints of almond meal. Dangerously drinkable. — 8 months ago
Earthy is characteristic of this Pinot. Then fruity like a typical Pinot. Really interesting Pinot from burgundy. — 4 months ago
Red berry, cinnamon cocoa, still a bit hound and needs time in the glass or a decant — 9 months ago
Talk about a singular expression of Pinot Noir. A pale gold coloring with effusive creaminess and a nice stream of very small bubbles. The aromas are a bit muted upon opening with just a bit of apple goodness to start the show. But let it sit for a while in a larger bowl and you’ll be rewarded. Warm cinnamon and crusty bread. Roasted nuts and blackberries all day long. There’s some fresh cherry and plenty salinity to boot.
Single vintage, single varietal, single vineyard. The hallmark of Jerome Coessens. 100% Pinot Noir from the lieu-dit of Largillier. The fruit hails from the plots that he has dubbed Fruit and Flower and that’s amazingly accurate. The amount of yellow fruit and floral notes are just ethereal in nature. The acidity borders on “racy” but instead settles on “zippy” which is just fine.
The attack is one that is quite pointed and full of finesse. It’s a very generous champagne that grows by leaps and bounds over time in the glass. An abundance of red and yellow fruits along with black pepper and dried herbs. Very fruity on the long finish with an added kick of spice. Singular and gorgeous. — a year ago
Grolleau on sandy loam. This 2021 vintage is light, transparent, and focused with elegant Brambly notes along the edges of the profile. — 7 months ago
Hints of tobacco and leather. Not too juicy or fruity. Really enjoyable, went great with both chocolate and lamb. Took some time to open up but to great effect. My favorite from Lemelson so far. — 9 months ago
Figured might be heading downhill but it’s drinking very nicely for my taste. That complexity only possibly with bottle age. Went well with different dishes over several days in Eto. — 10 months ago
