Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2016

A nice bottle with lots of freshness and nice acidity after an early nice roundness and a slight richness to it, a finish that is delicious in yellow orchard fruit, without being on the exotic side too much. Very nice Savigny Villages. 90-91

Un beau blanc tout en fraîcheur avec une tension appuyée après une attaque ayant une belle rondeur et une certaine richesse mais sans excès, avec une belle finale sur des fruits jaunes, sans être exotique. Pas le plus complexe mais savoureux.

Les Grands Poisots Volnay Pinot Noir 2007

Red fruit and some spices with some earthy tones. Nice acidity, silky and melted tannins, nice berry finish. Very nice 2007, nothing thin here, doesn’t show his age and very well balanced and delicious wine. 90-91

Fruits rouges, épices et des notes légèrement terreuses. Une bouche avec une belle acidité et des tannins fondus et veloutés, une finale agréable sur les baies rouges. Un 2007 qui ne fait pas son âge, aucune minceur ici, un vin délicieux avec un bel équilibre. 90-91

Aÿ - Vauzelle Terme Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2009

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2009 Extra-Brut Aÿ Vauzelle Terme, 100% Pinot Noir from a south-facing slope, is surprisingly ethereal in its first impression, before the natural power of the vintage makes itself felt. Mirabelle, crushed flowers, spice, mint and sweet dried cherry add pretty shades of nuance. The personality of Pinot from Aÿ comes through loud and clear. Disgorged May 2019 and bottled with no dosage. (Originally published in August 2020) (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2020) — 5 days ago

Les Chenevottes Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

This was a stunner but I was the least impressed. Fleshy and forward with a bunch of oak but some great mineral structure that gave it a backbone. Definitely became more expressive with air. — 2 days ago

Montmains Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Chablisien profile but very rich.

Nose is rich. Almost buttery. Not oaky. Perfumed though in a lovely way. Really pretty.

Palate has green apple. But almost like it’s baked. Some minerality. But not a screamer. Really delicious. Rich on the palate.

A very enjoyable wine if a bit atypical.

As this opens its spectacular. I shouldnt really go crazy on it bc the vintage is so reviled. But it’s amazing. Rich yet elegant. Aromatic. Complex. Wow.

Bought from fass selections.

7 Crus Brut Champagne Chardonnay

Delectable Wine
9.1

The NV Brut 7 Crus is an attractive, easygoing wine that will drink well upon release. A touch of Pinot softens the edges nicely, giving this Chardonnay-base Champagne tons of accessibility. Lemon confit, chamomile, mint and white pepper all open in the glass, but it is the wine's textural feel that makes the 7 Crus so rewarding to taste and drink today. This release is equal parts 2017 and 2016, from parcels in Avize, Oger, Oiry, Cramant, Avenay Val d’Or, Bergères les Vertus and Mardeuil. About 25% of the wine was done in neutral oak, the rest in cask. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2020. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2020) — 5 days ago
