Les Clous Aimé Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Chardonnay 2018

2022/8. As I’ve noted lately, it feels like the de Villaine whites have added another level in the last several years - deeper, more complex and more satisfying, without sacrificing any joyousness and without trying to be Meursault or anything like that. — a month ago

Bouzeron Aligoté 2017

Nose has yellow apple peel, pear slice, straw and beach sand.

Palate has tangerine zest, ripe pear, under-ripe yellow peach, cold clementine orange with medium acidity and slightly dry finish.
A nice bottle; not sure if this wants more time, or a couple years past prime...

On the sold out (18K+ patrons) Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest Conductor Ken-David Masur is leading a 90th birthday celebration of John Williams. BSO soloists tonight are J. Williams Hudgins (vibraphone) & Jessica Zhou (harp), joined by Yo-Yo Ma (cello), Branford Marsalis (saxophone), Eric Revis (bass) and James Taylor (vocals/guitar). A truly wonderful night lay ahead, and my money is certainly on hearing at least one or two Star Wars movements this evening...

@Severn Goodwin, I can remember buying this cuvée from KLWM In Berkeley 35 years ago, but haven’t tried it in awhile. John Williams — WOW! Saw him conduct a few different times at the Hollywood Bowl 25-30 years ago, lucky you, enjoy!!

@Doug Powers Because of JW's connection to the BSO, we actually get to see him conduct about 2x per season, minimum. Although last night was all about him not having to conduct, he did lead a movement from Superman and the theme from Indiana Jones during the encore.

La Fortune Côte Chalonnaise Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

2022/9/15-16. After drinking up all the 2016s and 2017s in Japan, we’re now on to more recent vintages. This was lovely as always, and the fruit seemed especially intense, fresh but rich. — 14 days ago

Mineral laden, pears, floral notes, some heft. Great value. — 22 days ago

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos des Myglands Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Pop and pour. One btl remaining. This tasted over the hill at first: no nose, tired palate. I didn't pour it down the drain and my father-in-law insisted on tasting it. He said: it isn't flawed, which is true, but it also seemed well past prime at the time.
Nevertheless, after 3 hrs: nose of soft plum, gamebird and cocoa, and the softest touch of VA. On the palate, slightly less compelling, hi-toned black and red fruit with some green notes and a tangy, bright finish. Conclusion: seems solid to good with a fair amount of air!

Domaine Thenard

Clos St Pierre Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Has a round and flubby vibe which I’m not expecting. Vanilla and cherry, some dust. Nice structure but not a bit of acid. Quite a bit muted. — 21 days ago
