17. A good deal for roulot.

Domaine Jean Chartron

Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay 2018

After this weekend, it's a bit tough to get back to "regular" wines. Nevertheless, this is yummy, but see previous notes.

Day 3: this has picked up significant weight and complexity. Wow.

9.3

Another dense young Boussey 18. Glorious fruit and minerals but a wall of tannin. Needs a 2+ hour decant. Nose is gorgeous cherries. Lipstick like intensity. I’ll be back. Texture gets softer and deeper with air. I love 18 but will take a while to get there. Incredible concentration and minerals. A great wine.

9.2 to 9.3 overnight. Superb earth and red fruits. Strawberry, gorgeous classic Burgundian aromas. Palate is super juicy and sleek. Great power and depth and unreal fruit. Delicious. Way better on day 2.

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Nose has fresh lemon slice, cut green & yellow apples, Italian bread, vanilla cremé and wet slate.

Palate has fresh pineapple, cold yellow apple, white flowers, sandstone and mild vanilla notes. Great acidity (as expected in the most youthful of stages, current vintage) with some drying, chalky aspects.

Decanted 90m. Another great Boillot Bourgogne Blanc to stock the cellar with for enjoyment 2023-29.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

@Sharon B Yes, but we got shut down last summer because of the pandemic. So I had more time for grilling, it worked out.

Domaine Patrick Javillier

Pernand-Vergelesses Pinot Noir 2018

Dark ruby red. Inviting nose and lush medium palate of earthy black cherry, fresh mushroom, and slightly woody red plum. Medium acidity. Medium minus tannins. A Burgundy for the New World drinker. Just enough fruit and a well regulated militia of oak, tannins, and acidity make for a PN that’s true to its roots yet approachable to the novice. A wide variety of cuisines will pair nicely. I went with very authentic (read, “spicy”) Ethiopian fare. Drink now through 2028. — 8 days ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Monthélie Chardonnay 2011

Nose has caramel dipped yellow apple, lemon peel, lemon zest, peach slice, warming butter and classroom chalk dust.

Palate has sugar dusted lemon slice, slightly oxidized yellow apple peel, fresh-fresh lemon zest, light salinity, sauteed peach and old white flowers.

Great acidity, likely opened this much too soon, expect this bottle to be a ⭐ in another 6-9Y (2027-30), albeit delicious tonight.

Decanted 4H+, more time appreciated.

Always look for the less notable Village and vineyard sites from your favorite high level producers, chances are good they're making a great, under-the-radar wines with pricing to match.
