Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Chardonnay 2011

On the nose; Marzipan, slight reduction, honey, asian pear, overripe cantaloupe, toasted oats, strange fresh jalepeño thing going on and port salut. — a month ago

Henri Jayer

Echezeaux Pinot Noir 1980

The 80 & 93 vintage seemed to be great years for Jayer as their Ech & CP were some of best in the lineup tonight. — 2 years ago

Umathum

Zweigelt 2015

Is this the best Umathum Zweigelt ever? Smells and tastes the way young Henri Jayer wines used to. Perfectly ripe, weightless, low alcohol (12.5%). Seems like it was cold soaked. Cranberry, umeboshi plum, cherries. Extraordinary! #zweigelt #umathum #burgenland #austria — 3 years ago

Henri Jayer

Échezéaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1998

Henri et Georges Jayer Echezeaux 1998. Vines owned by Henri’s brother Georges. 2X with this wine. Richer and fuller in body(than the Jayer Cros Parantoux 1998 drunk alongside) and became silkier, more savory, and more elegant with time in decanter. Arguably not at apogee, although drinking fantastically now. — 2 months ago

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2007

It’s good & very classic style, but doesn’t has the depth as DRC. But personally I like it better than Henri Jayer 1990 Echezeaux . — 10 months ago

Evesham Wood

Cuvée J Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2008

A beautiful nose of soft red fruits, some spice, soulful plummy stuff. Very burgundinian but the plushness of US Pinot. On the palate this has great poise. Light but intense this has lovely fresh fruit and some gnarly wild herbs with underlying acidity and good length. Apparently the ‘j’ refers to Jayer cuttings being the source of the Pinot. If so, that would go some way toward explaining why this is so aromatic and balanced. Excellent — 2 years ago
