Le Bareuzai Chorey-les-Beaune Pinot Noir 2018

That's a fun Bourgogne côte de beaune ! Vanilla, a toasty thing, cherry and hay. The palate is made of a huge acid drive, a persistent vanilla note, a bright cherry push all over the place. A good width, a nice a'd soft mouthfeel with caressing tannins in mid palate, a long finish with fruit, vanilla and a slightly drying tannic effect. This is textbook classic lovely burgundy Pinot and it's so good! — a month ago

Quintessence de Mondeuse 2017


Intriguing, beguiling red, ruby barely opaque w/evolving nose of blackberry and plum Gummy Bear, a lift (maybe Alpine?) but def hi-toned note, herby Ricola, devious spice, medicinal & forest floor, floral. Needs food, played well w/duck breast. Med weight & med acidity. As @Lyle Fass mentioned: Gamay-esque, also reminded me of Lagrein. Killed this bottle in no time. Unique & esoteric variety, thanks Lyle — 16 days ago

Monthélie 1er Cru Les Clous 2016

Expressive and oerfumed nose, flowery, strawberries and a touch of smoke. The palate is fresh, straight, medium bodied, charming fruit, nice balance but with average length in the finish, nice. 89-90 — a month ago
