Domaine Grosbot-Barbara

Les Maltôtes Ipp13 Chardonnay Tressallier 2018

First sip is crazy. Totally unique.

Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.

Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.

Man. This is very good.

Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.

As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.

An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.

Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Bought from fass selections.

Les Jalets Crozes Hermitage Syrah 2016

Better at this point than the 2016 Jaboulet Saint Joseph I drank this with. Also better on day 2. Brambly fruit and violets but missing any kind of olive/meaty notes. — 2 months ago

Romanee Saint-Vivant Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Slightly disappointing as I was expecting a bit more from a great vintage and grand cru. My bad luck with 2005s continues - either too closed or overripe... this felt like a bit of both. — 4 months ago

Domaine Paul Pillot

Les Pitangerets Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Revisiting an appellation whose wine I haven’t tried for years: Saint Aubin. The Pitangeret lieu-dit straddles the border with Chassagne, overlooking en Remilly and is classified a premier Cru. This 2017 by Dom. Paul Pillot (headed up by the young Thierry) is a commendable wine from an exciting producer. The wax seal makes for an attractive bottle.

Burnt butter and lime peel dominate the nose, with toasty oak, wet stone, struck match and after two hours’ air a little toffee.

The palate is gorgeous, very taut, direct and vibrant, with a juicy core of lime juice, granny Smith apple, Meyer lemon, finishing with medium length and a touch of vanilla. At around £35, this is a good value Burg that I’ll look out for again.
